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.

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.

Wait.... I actually use hair spray now

So I'm not a type of guy that would ever use hair spray. But I just bought this whole bottle. It works great and is often better than putting fiber or gel in your hair.

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.

Much better than I thought!

I'm not much of a fan when it comes to hair spary--too many bad memories sitting behind my mother on road trips and she needing to spray a bunch before getting out of the car. This hairspray really does the trick when I've gotten to the office and the wind is really high or I forgot a patch of hair, or that stubborn cowlick in the back just won't go down. The hold is just right, it doesn't have an over powering odor; all around great item!

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.

Works for medium and long hair...

Crew's Alternator works when you want a light hold without all that gunk in your hair. I believe it work best on medium and long hair styles, since shorter ones tend to require more hold. I suggest keeping it in your car or briefcase since you might want to reapply during the day.

Easy to use, works all day

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.

Not for me

I don't have a problem with this product it just doesn't suit my hair needs. It seems to hold well and do what it claims, but I just prefer a past to something that holds as firm as this product.

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.
