Q. How do I tame a cowlick just above my forehead? Tammy Adams; Everett, WA
A.The best way to tame a cowlick is with length and weight. If that’s not currently an option (ie: you hair isn’t long enough or heavy enough to coax the offending strands into a desired direction), a texture service or a very strong gel would be my recommendation. Depending on your hair type, texture and look, a perm, anti-curl or relaxer can help redirect the cowlick in such a way that it’s, at least, easier to style. When it comes to strong gels, Sebastian Liquid Steel is my hands down favorite.
