American Crew Favourites

american crew products
Today I'm going to be talking about some of my favourite products from American Crew. It doesn't matter what hair type you have - they have something for everyone. I think it's safe to say American Crew have dominated the market when it comes to premium haircare for men. I first had an American Crew product used in my hair when I went to a salon and it was surprisingly good. So good that I came home and forked out £10 for it. I've recently tried out a few other products from their range and here are my thoughts.
american crew shampoo
First off let's start with the 3-in-1 Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash. This thing smells amazing. I'm really bad at describing smell however I would say it smells like a really expensive aftershave. I normally don't like 3-in-1 products because I feel how can it clean my hair and then condition it all in one go? So for that reason I would say it's pretty average if you want to use it on your hair. Perhaps it's more suited to people who have short hair and on the go. If you are not a fan of SLS then this product may not for you. However if you like lots of foam then you'll love this as a body wash - a little bit goes a long way.

The Daily Moisturising Shampoo says it's suitable for all hair types (which it is) but it's especially good for people with medium to long hair. This stuff smells minty and has a creamy consistency. It cleans hair well leaving a moisturising effect in a non greasy way.

The Daily Conditioner has a similar minty smell due to menthol. You'll feel invigorated and if you leave it in your hair long enough your scalp will tingle. I would say it moisturises hair without weighing it down - this is probably due to the added Vitamin B5. This conditioner is definitely a new favourite as I have medium to long curly hair. I've used rubbish conditioners in the past and I've just ended up looking like a frizz ball. 
american crew fiber, defining paste and forming cream
American Crew Fiber is one of their most popular products for short hair. Designed to give high hold with a low shine. This fiber-like product helps thicken, texturize and increase fullness to hair with a matte finish. I'm planning on going back to short hair very soon and when I do this is product is going to be my best friend.

The American Crew Defining Paste is my second favourite product, giving a medium hold with a matte finish. This product is made with beeswax which means it is really hard. I always scoop a little out and warm it up in my hands. It quickly turns to an emolient style paste. This product is similar to the Fiber Paste however the Defining Paste is easier to distribute through hair. American Crew suggest that this product is suitable for hair beyond the length of 2 inches which I would say is fairly accurate. I like to use this product on days I want something matte on my hair. It feels light which still allows for natural movement without looking all over the place.

Lastly my all time favorite American Crew product is their Forming Cream. This is the first American Crew product I bought and I'm still very much obsessed with it. The Forming Cream is easy to use, giving a medium hold with a healthy shine. This product has excellent pliability and makes your hair look healthy. After using this product I always top it up with a bit of hairspray to prevent fly away hairs. The Forming Cream is definitely more suitable to longer hair types I would say.

  2. How much does the crew stuff cost? I genuinely always have trouble with hair products; one day out of 20 it will look decent. And it’s at that point when I jump on the selfie bandwagon.hair wax
