Elmers glue is supposed to be really good, if you live in the US.

I just use the strongest Rave hairspray.  It starts holding instantly so you don't have to keep your head upside-down for ages waiting for it to dry.
It's cheap too--about $2 for a big can, and you can get it just about anywhere.

My boy has had his hawk for over 10 years now and has always stuck with the clear Elmers glue and Aqua Net hairspray.  First he squirts some glue into his hand, rubs them together, runs through the first section and then holds it up while setting it with a hair dryer on low.  (you might want to designate a hair dryer for this, it's gets messy) He does that until he gets all his hair up.  It's about 12 inches long/tall when it's finished. After the glue is in, he sprays the hell out of it with the hairspray and then uses the hair dryer again to set it.  I've seen the thing last over a week even when sleeping.  Sometimes he has to retouch a spot, but he just adds some more hairspray and the hair dryer.  All it takes is some regular old shampoo to wash it out.  His har isn't damaged from it either.

i have a mohawk too, but mine is pretty short (like 6 cm at the moment), so some hair wax is enough for me, just to form and define the mohawk, as the hair stands up practically by itself. (does that mak senes? i mean, my englis is kinda not so good.)
short mohawks are really practical, because styling really isnt an issue, i do that on the tram, i have a tiny tray of hairwax in my bag. (i might post a pic some time...)

bag_lady a few posts back knows her stuff.  I used Rave hairspray, but same basic concept.  My hawk was about 8 inches tall and my boyfriend's at the time was over a foot and they stayed up for days. 
To wash it out, when you shower turn on the water real hot (but don't hurt yourself =/) and let it run for a minute or two over your hair to help melt and loosen it up.  once you get the shampoo in there, it's a lot easier to work with.
