Not Great for Thick Hair

I love Crew products, and I'm sure this works well for thinner hair. Mine is just too thick. I like the idea of it, but it just doesn't add any hold to my hair.

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.

Superb hold, a bit sticky though

Be prepared to quickly style your hair when using this product. It has a nice smell, and has a significant amount of hold. I'm not looking for that every day, but when I am, it works very well.

Slick!

When my hair was short, I loved this product. It's like a cross between wax and hairspray-keeps a flexible style and makes your hair glossy at the same time.

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

Having watched the "sneak peak" vid, I was pretty excited about getting this product. My hair is starting to thin and I'm just now in a situation, financially, that I can do something about it. The ads suggest that this product allows for all day styling. The first thing I noticed is that the spray applicator reminded me of 80's big hair and hairspray. The product went everywhere. In my eyes, in my coffee three feet away, etc. After covering my entire bathroom, I had enough on my hair to style. Depending on the amount of dampness, the easier it was, and as I have learned, more shine. This was a little disappointing because I was hoping for something that allowed styling with dry hair. The ability to style was OK, but after about 30 mins, my hair wasn't moving. Trying to re-style as the ads suggested left me pulling my hair out...literally! Re-styling required either more product or water, either way, the shine went up as well. Really let down compared to other American Crew products.

Not for me

I was expecting a little more hold from thie product, may just be the wrong solution for what I was looking for

Great Product!

Does as intended, I use it for the finishing touches after my initial product is in. The work day can get hectic and this product keeps it together for me. Not too much shine, doesn't leave it rock hard, and comes out easily.

I typically prefer a wax but this spray works well. I would recommend.
