It’s Gorilla Snot Gel time! The one in the yellow bottle is Zara’s favorite and the one she uses in this baby hair edges styling video. It gives her a super-strong hold without making her hair feel “nasty.” A little of this very gummy gel goes a long way. Watch how Zara works it in and styles her baby hairs with her edge toothbrush that she first sprays with hairspray. It’s like watching an artist at work!
