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.

Smells great, makes my hair pliable for styling without feeling oily. Highly recommended and works well with other American Crew products as well as other brands.

Very good product!
Sampled

I received this product in my box and have been using it lately because I have a shorter hair cut right now. I applied it after shower and dry it right away with a hair dryer. It helps to mold the hair and I apply claymation as a base then a shiner wax as final hold and finish. If I am looking for a more relaxed and messier look, I just use the claymation and finish with a flexible spray. The magic of Alternator is that it really helps the hair to hold a lot better throughout the day. I am in sales and I have to be in the car and on the road a lot. I definitely can feel the difference when I use Alternator. Highly recommended.

Not Just for Guys

I have really fine hair and most sprays weigh my hair down, but not this stuff... it gives my hair the right amount of body and hold and I don't smell like a guy. This is a great product!

I stole this from my husband's box!

I have short hair and I love this product. It holds hair in place without feeling heavy. I think it works better than most pommades. My husband and I fought over it!

Hate it!!
Sampled

I have thick wavy hair and it doesn't do anything to my hair - I mean nothing. Doesn't give texture or volume - unlike what the product description says. Hair looks deflated and all over the place.

Sampled it, bought it. I was amazed how I was able to restyle my hair very easily after it was used. This will be a staple.

A mans hairspray

This hairspray has a great shuttle scent, that is nowhere near the fruity stuff that typically ends up in my bathroom. To be honest I never much thought about using hairspray until I got this birch box...but now I am a believer.

I am bald, but....

Gave this sample to a friend of mine to try out. Wasn't too impressed - said the after effects felt "sticky" and greasy. Wouldn't try again.

It's ok

I'm sure this product works great for the people with the right hair type but it just wasn't for me. Didn't really offer a strong hold for my stubborn hair.

Worked OK

This stuff smelled good, but it only worked so-so in my fine hair. It was much better than a regular hair spray, but wasn't quite sticky enough in my hair.
