  1. Hi, how long do you suggest keeping it slick? Is it okay to “freshen” up the style with a little gel every night for about 5 days then wash it? Thank you.

    1. Hey Michelle, Lovely name btw!

      Okay, I believe there is nothing wrong with refreshing it. Adding gel every night for 5 days could be too much depending on the amount of gel we talking about.

      You can always your spray bottle of water and mist your hair and add some gel but don’t over do it and I suggest you can keep it slick for a day or two and then release it a bit to not stay in the same slick style.

      Too much of everything is not that great they say!


      Hope this helps,

      xo, Queen!
