Once upon a time, there was a product on the market called Dippity Do, and when I just looked it up on google, you might still be able to buy it. Anyway, there really are a number of hair gel products on the market these days, but I remember Mom sticking her comb in the Dippity Do jar before she slicked our hair down when combing it. It probably helped our thin fly-away hair stay out of our faces.
One thing that does not work well for hair gel, or perhaps it works too well, is the antibiotic ointment used on my incision. We are having an awful time getting it washed out. The doctors said diluted hydrogen peroxide would work, but the way that is going, I'm still going to have a sticky problem for another couple of weeks. It helps, but a little at a time.
So, if anyone out there has some idea of what might cut this Vaseline type stuff out of my hair, bearing in mind that I have this incision and a tender head, I'd like some ideas.
