What is a good hair gel to spike my 6-year old nephew's spike-resistant hair?

I've tried a few different types of hair gel, mostly from drugstores and a couple from hair salons, but none have been able to overcome his hair type which is thick, straight and coarse. It looks really good for the first hour and then it starts to submit to his natural hair style. He really likes pointy spiked hair, not just on the top but on all sides. I've tried gel, gel with hair spray, gel dried with a hair dryer, gel-hair spray-hair dryer and nothing works. Is there a tried-and-true brand out there that is not too expensive and stands up to "mega hold" status for a kid's rough and tumble lifestyle? Thanks!
