Thanks to everyone who has submited their suggestions.

I am planning to go out tomorrow or on the weekends to see if I can find any of the products mentioned.

I should have mentioned earlier, but I am a male. So please no fruity scented stuff. Also, I was always under the impression that fruity scented stuff attracts flies or mosquitoes.

I'll let you all know if I need more help after checking out the products.

always pictured him as a buzz cut.

as far as mosquitos go, they are attracted to carbon dioxide, moisture, lactic acid, and body heat, not fruity scents.

yep. certain scents will attract different kinds of flies, the worst being the biting type. flies are also attracted to alcohol (which is in their natural environment from rotting fruit) so avoid colognes too.

Bees are also attracted to hair products, especially hairspray.

Okay, I just came back. And the only one mentioned in this topic that I could find was the Brylcreem. And it was in a box. So I don't know if it is a spray, gel, wax or whatever. I didn't dare to open the box with so many people around. Some more info is appreciated.

I should let you all know that I have a short ponytail. And want my hair to look like it is always wet/oily the whole day; from morning to evening.

Therefore, those out-of-bed type of product might not be suitable for my style.
