After hours of researching what product worked for my type of hair (short-medium length, thin and wavy) I finally found it! I ordered the small size and it works great for those trying to get experiment with it. You don't really need that much. Anyways, my biggest problem with other men hair products like clay, mud and wax, were they are all greasy and gave that shiny/wet look to your hair. Which in my case I have a thin hairline and doesn't go well with those products. This one feels brilliant. As soon as you put it on you can feel it holds up to the shape you want it and the best thing is it looks like you didn't even put a product on! Highly recommend if you have the same type of hair and is looking for something to keep your hair in place without it being obvious you put on a product.
Finding the right hair product which caters specifically to your individual hair type and length can feel like a slog. It certainly did for me, having spent some ten years trying to find the perfect product after I stopped using my previous favoured brand. Until American crew, that is! This 'fiber' (as it says on the package, in keeping with American vibe, I suppose) is really nice, and is great at providing volume, control and texture for my mid-length mop. I'm glad my search for an ideal product has finally come to an end! I also love that many American Crew products come in smaller sizes too, meaning you can try them out without having to buy a full-size tub and risk chucking most of it away.
Fiber does its job, giving me the desired high hold, low shine effect. One drawback is that it’s greasy on my hair, even when I use a small amount. It also demands a bit too much effort to wash off, and the fragrance is not that pleasant. I still use it occasionally, but I recently fell in love with a completely different product: Star Wax Clay (
Star Wax | Premium Pomade, Clay, by Star Pro Line - 5 fl oz / 150mL
). It's a strong hold, matt finish styler that works exceptionally well on both dry and damp hair. Unlike Fiber, Star Wax is not greasy, so it rinses off clean with just water, and it honestly has the best fragrance I've ever encountered in a men's hair styling product. I always like to check out the competition, and I’m glad I did this time because both products are good and I like to alternate between them.
I love this stuff. You only need a small amount, the finish is not shiny and it holds very well. It lasts a long time so no need to repurchase regularly. The pot is not too big so it's relatively easy to transport. Great price here on Amazon too. I almost always use American Crew over other brands. Whilst I have occasionally tried cheaper supermarket brands, American crew is superior in almost every way. I do find that I don't use as much either so a tub lasts me several months anyway.
In terms of the actual product, it is a very firm paste that you need to dig your finger into. It's quite a hard wax and may seem to hard at first. It is important to rub it between your fingers and warm it up as it becomes much softer and easy to apply.
Overall, this product looks great, works well and has a strong hold, smells amazing, and although it is more expensive than other supermarket brands, you get what you pay for with it.
Excellent product that gives you’re hair a much fuller look. It’s easy to apply, just rub a small amount between the palms of you’re hands and run through you’re hair. It lasts a long time as only a small amount of product is needed.
I'm a girl with a quiff and having spent years trying to find a hair product that actually holds without having to use hairspray, I've finally found it. American Crew Fiber has a great hold, smells amazing (kind of like lemon sherbet) and as long as you don't touch your hair, it will stay in the style that you want. It's like using hairspray but in clay form
Good hair product keeps my hair where I want it without the need for hairspray and comes off my hands after easily enough. It lasts a full day too. After trying many gels,puttys and waxes this is my favourite
