My hair has a mind of its own & parts where it wants to, which is the middle because of the middle being the 'valley' & a cowlick for a 'mountain' on each side. I've tried sprays, 'glues', & gels & it always did what it wants. I stopped bothering with it & let it have its way. Now you know what it does -- it goes slightly off-center to either side whenever it feels like it!!!
