Good for medium length hair....Now that my husband's hair is a little longer this is the only styling gel he uses. ...Best gel ever used!...I don't know how this would work as a styling aid for men with hair longer than 2 inches on top, but for shorter cuts needing definition this is a winner.

What it does:
Jack Black Body-Building Hair Gel Provides superior hold and control with a lightweight, clean feel. It won't build up or flake, and leaves no sticky residue to weigh hair down.
