Why Gorilla Snot Gel Is The Secret Behind Kim K’s Perfect Hair

Kim K is well known for her luscious locks. Whether it’s dark brunette or peroxide blond, poker straight or bouncy curls, it always manages to look picture-perfect.

One of the main reasons Kim’s barnet always looks in tip-top shape is celeb hairstylist, Jen Atkin.

Responsible for the manes of Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigen, Katy Perry and the whole Kardashian clan, what Jen doesn’t know about hair isn’t worth knowing.

An Instagram phenomenon, Jen regularly shares her tips, tricks and product recommendations with her 1.2 million followers. 

Her most recent product tip-off comes in a unlikely form. In a recent hair tutorial for Kim Kardashian’s app, Jen is seen using a product called Gorilla Snot Hair Gel. Yep, you heard us right.

The product is a form of hair gel and according to their website “designed specifically for punk hairstyles, mohawk, indie hair style and all anti-gravitational hairstyles”.

While the packaging definitely isn’t #shelfie worthy and the name pretty unappealing, this product will set you back less than a fiver! Winner!

So how does Jen use this gross sounding gel? Well, the gel is perfect for holding any style in place without leaving any flakiness, product residue or making your hair greasy. Plus, as the weather warms up and the dreaded humidity levels increase, this product will be your best friend when it comes to keeping frizz and stray hairs in check.

Hailed by the hair queen as her “secret weapon”, whatever hairstyle you are trying to create this product could come in pretty handy.

In the tutorial Jen shows us how she used the product to keep Kim’s S bend waves in place after creating loose curls with a pair of straightening irons.

Will you be giving this product a go?
