Best Answer: This gel is a little thicker/heavier than the previous Kiel styler. I think it can be used on most beards, maybe diluted a bit to avoid stiffness, residue. Make sure to wash/condition your beard after using it. I am not going to re-order this for my hair, a little too much hold. I like the Bumble & Bumble Styling creme for a light hold. I also do like the new Kiel's beard oil--expensive, but will last a long time unless you are really bushy.
