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.

This has got to be one of the best product, I've tried. Great consistency and good quality as well.

Amazing Hold
SampledPurchased

Nothing like Alternator that I have found. After applying pomade and styling, I spray this on my hair to add a bit of extra hold. It keeps me looking great all day, even in wind. It's a staple in my hair routine and I haven't been able to find it anywhere but Birchbox.

The BEST
SampledPurchased

I received a small sample of this product in my box and fell in love immediately. After one use I knew this product would be in my daily use. I have just purchased my second full sized product and will continue to buy this product for the rest of my life. BEST HAIRSPRAY EVER.

Awesome flexible hold
Sampled

This has got to be one of american crew best products. Spray a little in damp hair, blow dry and hair will stand tall. Follow with some pomade to piece hair out and still be able to run hand through hair.

This is THE Best Hairspray I've ever used. You can apply and drive a motorcycle with this stuff on and you won't have a hair out of place. Super strong hold!

He can't live without it
SampledPurchased

My husband loves this stuff! He can't live without it. He loves how easy it is to do his hair and it gives his hair a nice shine without it looking oily or like gel. This product is what hooked him on the birchbox subscription because he loved finding products without having to buy different full sizes at the store

Perfect for Quick Fixes!

I love this product because I can use it when I need a quick fix. Sometimes my hair gets a little messed up, so I spray this in my hands and work it through my hair to freshen it up. I just leave it in my desk and use it whenever I need it.
You can never go wrong with American Crew products!

Excellent Hair!
Purchased

I ordered this for my son who has very fine hair. This product from J Crew has helped his hair stay in place, as well as give it some texture without being "sticky or tacky". We would both highly recommend this product!
