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.

Nice hold without the helmet

I liked the hold without the helmet feeling where my hair has a protective dome. The product gives a firm hold without feeling like you used AquaNet. You can use this in conjunction with styling creme which I did.

Great product

This is a great product. It holds very well and isn't an aerosol spray like hair spray. It doesn't smell bad. Overall, like the rest of american crew products, it is great.

Wonderful product!

I loved the hold this product gave my hair. It also smelled wonderful and the scent and hold would last throughout the day. Paired perfectly with the American Crew forming cream.

solid product

I've always been happy with any product from American Crew I've tried. This one didn't disappoint either. nice hold without feeling too much like a hair spray - however it is definitely sticky if it touches your skin.

Good Product
Purchased

This product works really well, I like the soft hold that it gives my hair. However, the price compared to the amount of product you get is a little high. I feel that I can use a similar product for cheaper.

Not bad, but is isn't great either

I think one of the major issues with this product is the smell. It smells like cheap hair spray. I know it isn't and for people with thick hair it doesn't seem to hold very long. Wet out of the shower you need to blow dry your hair with it to hold. It just isn't that great, but it isn't the worst either.

i loved this product and the way it made my hair fell and look. it was easy to style without leaving behind any greasy, powdery residue.

Good, light hold

Good product that gives a light hold thats not stiff and allows some pliablity. The scent is a bit too strong for me, but i think it wears off quite quickly.
