You can apply a hair gel to dry hair to give added stiffness and substance, but if you apply a conditioner after drying, your hair will look greasy.

 Hair conditioners are designed to coat the hair shaft and keep the hair soft and manageable. Styling gels on the other hand contain agents that coat the hair and give it added volume. Many gels contain adhesive agents which will make the hair stick together and give the style added strength to hold longer.

 Conditioners, on the other hand, are designed to be left on the hair for a short period of time and rinsed away. As the hair dries, it appears soft and shiny. Conditioners have a heavy consistency and can leave a greasy appearance if left on the hair. Gelled hair can dry yet appear stuck together as wet hair behaves.
