I use Gorilla Snot gel it sounds gross but its amazing hold for the base of a hawk and smells fantastic and then I spray it with Got2b Glued Freeze Spray. & blow dry it sometimes. usually my roomate does my hair for me :)
I heard from someone else's forum on this site that WhiteSands' Liquid Texture Firm Hold works wonders. I do not know this personally though, but that's what I was thinking about getting. My boyfriend and his friends always used Got2BGlued Spiking Freeze Spray. It's a yellow bottle that looks like a airhorn, and theirs always came out good. The thicker their hair was, the better their hawk turned out. But the site for that Liquid Texture stuff is: whitesandproducts.com if you want to check it out for yourself. I don't know what stores sell it, but you can buy the Got2B Glued Freeze Spray just about anywhere.
