|American Crew styling products|
Women aren’t the only ones that care about their
appearance. Men also like to improve their packaging though they often don’t
like to admit it. Just like us, they can be confused at times
what styling products to use. However, I was sent a variety of American
Crew’s hair styling products for men that I had my own guy test for this
review and just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Depending on how much hold you need, this company
has a styling product to fit. Forming Cream is a
great place to start to gain a medium hold while helping hair to appear thicker
with a bit more of a healthy shine. This product with sucrose as a
conditioning agent doesn’t make hair look
pasted down or hard either but somewhat softer to the touch. My guy used a
small amount after he towel-dried his fairly thick hair and it was enough to
keep it in place while it also had movement.
The next day, I replaced that jar with their Pomade
for him to try. Being the good sport he is, my guy applied a little of the
product after he showered and shampooed. Though you can use these products
on dry hair as well, his preference always runs the same way as mine, using on damp washed hair.
The Pomade had a creamy light
texture he explained instead of any heavy, waxy feel. This gave him a firmer pliable hold with
an added shine
for slicking back his hair for more of a wet look. Running my hand over
it, I noticed it was also was not sticky, crunchy, or greasy to the touch.
Another surprise awaited him when he looked at
his dresser. Once again I replaced the product and left him a
replacement. This time I gave him American Crew’s Fiber to
use. He overdid it and ended up with spikes
shooting from his hair. However, he teased me and intentionally styled his hair that way
since this product enabled him to bend it without making it hard.
To keep him on his toes, I denied him another
product and skipped a day of switching. Usually, he was not one for
styling products, but I wanted to see if he would try it again after his fun
yesterday. And once he joined me I noticed he arranged his hair slightly
different but more into keeping with his classic style. This time though
it had more control and brilliance.
A good sign, I thought. Nonetheless, I had
one more product left for him to test. I stole his Fiber and
substituted Classic Ultramatte, a liquid styling product that gives hair a matte
finish. All I had left was to wait and see what my guy would do.
From the hallway, I saw him carefully read the new tube he picked up before
working a small amount from the top to the ends.
I handed him the blow-dryer and pointed to the
plug. I gave him my brush and he worked his hair up into a
Pompadour. He nodded and then followed my direction. The next time I
came back into the room, I saw him admiring himself with his slightly tousled up
thick hair that still looked classic enough for work only with more of a
youthful modern edge.
Though he liked this product, I could tell he was
debating about the loss of the shine. I threw him a magazine showing the
matte look was a big thing now for men. I should never have done that
because ever since he is fussing with his hair every opportunity now and
demanding all his American Crew products returned plus even experimenting
with some of mine.
Ladies, be careful in making your man realize his
true handsome potential! But yet, I have to admit he is looking sexier
thanks to America Crew styling products.
