MFH says

Really enjoyed getting to know this product. Slick Gorilla is easy to use and really very responsive.

Best for guys with short hair and textured haircuts. This product wasn’t ideal for my slightly longer length hair.

A little goes a long way. Layer this product up. It also really needs shampoo to fully remove the product.

Slick Gorilla Hair Powder | Honest Review

The first hair product launch from Leeds-based Slick Gorilla.

“A new and emerging brand from the streets of downtown Leeds is about to hit the pavements – well hair, to be honest!

We introduce to you the one and only Slick Gorilla. A hair brand created with the urban jungle in mind. Our first product – one of many we’ll be launching – is a volumising hair powder to give your mane that stand out look.
Slick Gorilla’s mantra is to create the best hair products for the discerning gentleman who wants to look great and survive in the urban jungle…
When only Slick will do!”

Powder. Fairly sticky.



How To Use Slick Gorilla

Apply directly into the hair; or – as I prefer – sprinkle onto your hands and distribute through your hair, root to tip.

Use the product to add texture to casual styles.

How Much To Use?

A little goes a long way! Only sprinkle a tiny bit. You can add more if needed.


A slight tackiness to hold the hair. Matte/dull finish. Looks texturised.


Can work with the hair all day. Doesn’t dry hard or look greasy.


Not great. Really coats the hair. Need to use shampoo.

Slick Gorilla | Who Is It For?

Best for short hair to add texture and light movement. Not so effective in longer hairstyles.
