Before we go and buy anything, most of us want to do our research. Today we will discuss two major selling products from two of the most on trend UK brands and put them up against each other in a battle of the brands competition. Today we look at the Slick Gorilla Hair Styling Texturising Powder VS Hairbond Wonder Professional Hair Primer.
Welcome to battle of the brands.
Whilst Slick Gorilla is quite new to the UK market, matte hairstyling has carried them to success.
“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!“
Hairbond United Kingdom on the other hand is much more established. A range which similarly only started with just a select few products over 12 years ago has gone on to dominate global demand now manufacturing a range of products suited to different hair types.
Unlike Slick Gorilla, Hairbond launched out of Lancashire when multi-brand owner Scott Michaels saw that a premium British label had the potential to represent the best-made quality hair styling products when it comes to world unisex hair styling. Since then Hairbond products have been crafted to be loved by the masses.
Over the years Hairbond has gone from strength to strength with thousands of celebrity endorsements. Due to the amount of Premier League and International footballers who support it, Hairbond United Kingdom have become known as the “Premier League Of Hair Styling”.
“Launched in 2008, Hairbond is an authentic British hair brand that produces professional hair products. The brand products are all as a result of progression, innovation, and expression. What Hairbond offers, no other hair brand can claim. It uses the best ingredients to formulate professional products that achieve creativity and style. Hairbond has won many awards across the globe, and rightfully so.
The Hairbond brand is distinctive and luxurious, trading all over the world as the number one men’s hair product. Hairbond’s mission is to bring together different world fashion into one world stage. Therefore, to get the right hair products to achieve your best results, buy Hairbond products.
The philosophy of Hairbond is as true today as the day it was founded. The Hairbond range has intended to deliver its promise of quality by maintaining the highest possible standards, using top of the range product formulations and ingredients to create an authentic British solution for the ultimate hairstyling results.”
First lets get stuck in to the Hairbond Wonder Professional Hair Primer Spray!
Hairbond United Kingdom Wonder Professional Hair Primer Spray
Stylish and modern. Lovely glass effect. Plastic bottle comes with plastic cap. Love the clear/white/purple look too. 5/5
Easy. Spray a few pumps of the primer onto your hands whilst your hair is towel dry/still damp. Rub your hands together and start to apply to the roots and ends. Then use your brush or comb to distribute the formula all over each strand. 5/5
Super soft hair, more controlled, less frizz, reduced split ends. My wife uses it every day now as part of her routine. Whilst I use it to prestyle, instead of a sea salt spray, to build the foundations of my latest style. 5/5
Low hold. 5/5

Slick Gorilla Hair Styling Texturising Powder
The packaging looks great. Shame it’s too big for the 20g contents as the shaker is only half full when you get it out the box. 4/5
Easy application. 2/5
Strong natural look but for more professional salon results like you get from other products, finish with a matte styler. 3/5
A fine powder. 5/5
Good hold alone but recommend working additionaly with a strong clay, mud or wax if hold is important to your style. 4/5
What They Say
“Put a small amount of powder on your palm or apply directly to dry hair
Mess it up and make sure the powder is distributed all over the styling area
Style your hair the way you want
