      Hi! I was wondering how long does the hair styling gel last and do you need to store it in the refrigerator?

      Hi Mari, you do not need to store it in the fridge, but if you're going to keep it for more than a couple weeks, you'll want to add 2-3 drops of vitamin E oil (from a capsule, just prick it with a needle and add the drops) for a natural preservative. I've never had a problem with any mold, but I don't remember it ever lasting longer than a couple weeks.
