Well yeah, I just got a mohawk and I was wondering what some of the best methods are for keeping it up. It's not that long, I'm only rocking about 2 or 2 1/2 inches (<- btw nobody better take that out of context and sig it lol). So basically I'm just asking what are the best gels to use or adhesives.... pretty much anything.

Should I shampoo or shouldn't I? Some people have mentioned glue, is that a good route to take? Because I have naturally wavy hair so if I just use some standard gell it'll stand up alright but it will eventually start to curl a whatnot.

Sigged.

Nah just messin, I don't think glue would be to healthy for your hair, you need to wash it with shampoo because shampoo is acidic and takes grease out of your hair.

Viagra?

I think hairspray + hairdryer is the way to go

lol go for it, I don't blame you.

And yeah, I appreciate all the imput. for some reason hairspray hadn't crossed my mind lol. There hasn't been a bottle of hairspray in my house in years so I just kind of forgot about it and was only thinking along the lines of gel. I'm gonna have to go out and grab some good ol' AQUANET lol.
#15
use that stuff they used in theres something about mary... what was it now???

and copius amounts of hairspray
#16
Yeah... dont use gel though. Hairspray dries out the hair and gel makes it greasy. So hairspray is better, and if you buy ur own get one of the super-hold ones.
#18
do as i say
since i am the hair queen
get got2be hair glue.
this is like wind tunnel tested.
and im not sure if you can get this but its very good hairspray
BLAST by the companty called ICE
#19
ask your pediatrition
when im with you, there's nothing I wouldn't do, i just wanna be you're only one. im gasping out of straws, taken aback by what i saw that night before when we were all alone...

Actually that's what I'm using now and it doesn't really hold as much as I'd like it to. I suppose I'm just not using enough, but my hair still curls. Or should I apply fairly liberally and hold it up till it dries?

EDIT: Oh and about that blast hairspray, I'll look into it. My sisters a cosmetologist so she can probably score me some when she buys product. And I know you guys are thinking "wtf don't you just ask her!?" lol, but I literally just got it done and I figured there might be plenty of people on UG who know how to sport a well groomed mohawk.

ok then get some cash and buy the good stuff,
what hair type do you have is your hair naturally curly?
#22
I'll say it again... soap is the best way. I've got friends who have mohawks and thats what they use.

It's wavy. It's not really curly, like if I let it grow out it won't get all poofy and curly like Mars Volta status lol. But my hair's thick so naturally it's pretty wavy. so like different parts of the mohawk are trying to lean over to opposite sides and it's not a great look lol.

EDIT: oh and yeah I noticed the soap thing too dude. I aknowledge it, I'll probably give everything a try except the crude oil and manjuice lol. But you kinda have to go into a little more detail man lol. Like when you say soap... what do I do with the soap? I just picture myself going at my hair with a bar of soap lol and it doesn't really seem right.

the thickness could be a problem i suggest to go
and get it layered so that it isnt a thick
i also suggest BLAST hairspray from ICE my friend has a mohawk andhe uses that,
but honeslty its all in your own hair
i dont think you are holding it up enough with the glue
try adding heat like blow drying it there.
any other questions erm pm me

and for your hair, I don't realy know it because I have long hair...
here in belgium I would suggest buy fructis style hard, it makes your hair hard as stone.
and go to the hairdresser to make your hair thinner
