American Crew Alternator

It’'s one thing to look good when you walk out the door, but perfect hair at the end of the day? That takes some serious skill——and the perfect styling product. This spray combines medium hold and medium shine for a winning natural look, but a high-tech acrylate polymer is what really sets it apart. Its formula allows for truly endless pliability, making the fifth touchup session just as easy as the first.

Great hair product

I loved the American Crew Alternator! It is simple, easy, and extremely effective. A simple spray or two is enough to keep your hair in place all day while still maintaining a freer sensation instead of that molded gel look.

I love this product.

This product is fantastic! If you're looking for a product that makes your hair soft, this may not be the product for you. I like how this product really holds hair in place, and it allows you to restyle your hair hours later without reapplying.

Easy to use, works all day
Purchased

I really have nothing bad to say about this product. It's easy to apply, holds all day long, doesn't give my hair that weird 'wet' look, and doesn't make a mess like clays or gels.

Proven brand, versatile product

As a long-time American Crew consumer, the Alternator was new to me. Their hair care line are classics, and this is a great addition. I'm not a fan of thick styling creams, so this spray leaves my hair pliable and unstuck through the day. I've found I can also move hair around during the day and it will continue to hold. Recommended.

It's ok

I like all of American Crews products. They all smell similar. This product worked alright. I like it more for the scent than the hold.

Nice Hold!

I switch between gel, wax normally, by midday I'm normally having to reset, but for the few times I've used this it kept the hold in to the night, it works extremely well.

This spray has just the right amount of hold. Doesn't have the hard feeling like a gel, and it's much easier to apply than pomade.

All day long

I really like how this product lasts all day long. I often put on and take a hard hat off at work throughout the day, and with just a run of my hand thru my hair, it's back to looking fresh.

incredibly useful

I often have to make public appearances later in the day, and this product is terrific for getting my hair back in shape without making it look like I am wearing a head full of gel.

Works like a Charm

This is great for a quick something to help make your hair style work. I normally just spray a little in my hair after the shower and style it as I wish and it stays all day
