Beyond the basics, the best hair grooming products for guys is about never leaving debris or build-up behind because that is just gross! There are some very desirable characteristics of grooming products that my son seeks when making the selection for his great head of hair. (Oh I hope he gets to keep it!) MJ has tested a lot of products and trust me, most have not made the cut and end up in the graveyard of hair grooming products (ugh!) —
This is MJ and me and you can see he definitely likes to style his hair. Let’s see what he has to say!
MJ has four qualifications that determine whether a product will ever touch his hair again or if it will hit the graveyard of hair grooming products. One thing I can assure you, is that he is about to offer you the best hair grooming products for guys that he has used to date and he has plenty of hair to test it on.
One of his favorite brands in guy styling products is American Crew, so he jumped at the chance to write his articles on 4 things guys require from their hair products! American Crew® is the professional leader in men’s grooming in the U.S., is the brand that defines men’s style, hair care and grooming trends. The line of products is amazing and actually dabbles on each one of his requirements, so you can imagine he changes up what he uses in the brand’s line daily.
#1 Keep The Hair In Position
Never did I realize that guys were just as finicky as ladies with hair and positioning. While we have our pomades, sprays and texturizers, they have their own line of stuff to combat movement. Key to successful grooming or starting to try the grooming thing is getting your hair to stay in position day long, without being weighed down by a heavy cream.
There are guy hair styling virgins out there and American Crew Forming Cream makes it easy to keep hair looking thicker, and it keeps hair pliable with a natural shine and an all-day hold. The bonus with this product is that is shampoos out and leaves nothing behind (no residue and no build-up) This is for all those first-timers just breaking into the hair grooming scene.
#2 Make Hair Look As Natural As Possible
It’s not always easy keeping hair looking natural once it is groomed and styled, but look hard enough and you will find some great products, in fact natural and pliable hair products are key to looking your best. Whether your hair 2″ in length or beyond, it is possible to define your style with some really great defining paste.
American Crew Defining Paste will help you to increase the definition of your hair, and keep it natural looking.
#3 Withstand The Call Of Sports
Sports rule big in our house from ice hockey to running and with that, bad hair days could prevail, but they don’t because my son has found something that keeps an all-day hold, and allows him to perspire and then get back to it, without losing his look!
Molding Clay from American Crew is the perfect solution to game days, and long runs, and it lets him keep his shine, hold and let’s him get his game on. What’s in this great Molding Clay? We asked the same thing and here is what we learned, ” White clay from the Paris Basin naturally heals and stimulates the scalp” and a result this is good for men with sensitive skin and scalps.
#4 Style The Cut
A cut is a cut, but it only defines you when you style the cut. Anyone can get their hair cut to between 1″ and 3″, but not everyone styles it. Basically, you are working your cut to look its best no matter what stage it is at, needing cut or just being cut.
Your choices to success are:
~ Fiber™ by American Crew which is a high hold, low shine product. This increases the fullness of the hair and helps to texturize the look, and it is very controlled. Hair is softer after use as this also conditions. The appearance is Matte-like.
~Grooming Cream provides a high hold, a big shine and it moisturizes while conditioning the hair. Drizzle happening in the forecast? No worries, this repels moisture and your hair will look great no matter the length.
~Pomade by American Crew which is a water-based formula that gives you smooth control, think, ‘slicked back’ look like Elvis.
