Consulting: http://www.aaronmarino.com i am alpha m: http://www.iamalpham.com Pete & Pedro: http://www.peteandpedro.com MENfluential Media: http://www.menfluential.com StyleCon: http://www.mensstylecon.com Alpha is amazed at the men's hair product drugstore options. In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is buying and testing drugstore hair products. He's heading to Walgreens for alternatives to Pete and Pedro Putty. With fresh clean hair, Alpha tries each of the 5 hair products: 1. American Crew Fiber ($19.00) - the price is the same as Pete and Pedro Putty and the most expensive of these 5 products. It's fresh smelling, a bit of shine, and hold is decent although he feels it will go flat as soon as he goes outside. Overall, it remains a great product. 2. Axe Spiked Up ($9.50) - it's super messy, sticky, and paste-like. It has the highest hold of all 5 products. After styling, his hair feels dry with a waxy residue. Note that after he washed his hair, he can still smell the Axe. The scent is intense. 3. Old Spice Putty ($8.00) - smells mild and is really soft. The more you heat it up, the scent becomes stronger (and not to Alpha's liking in regard to the fragrance). The product goes into his hair easier than Axe but has a much lower hold than American Crew and Axe. 4. Dove Sculpting Paste ($7.75) - mild fragrance, stiff, and emulsifies easily. The hold is not great (it's medium; not as good as the Axe) but on-par with American Crew (and half the price of American Crew). Overall, this product was Alpha's favorite of all 5 tested. 5. Got2B Glued Spiking Wax ($7.00) - a higher hold with a mild scent and similar in consistency to Dove. It's very sticky, heavy, and waxy. This product is the least favorite in terms of performance. Overall Thoughts If you put any of these products in wet hair and let air dry, they'll lock it down. A cost effective and good product is the Dove Sculpting Paste. American Crew is really good too. The other three are decent, but the lower price equates to lower quality ingredients. Note that Alpha prefers Pete and Pedro Putty above all of these products and would spend the extra bucks on the hair he cherishes. Additionally, unlike other brands where one product is good, the entire line Pete and Pedro line is superior with super high quality.

Alpha, I'm a regular viewer, but there's no way that I'm spending 30€ for a hair product (Pete & Pedro) so I do think imma just stick to the cheap stuff even though it may not be too good for my hair as Pete & Pedro

joeferragamojr (17 days ago)
I agree... I’ve done the same tests. My bathroom has partially used cans of everything. Dove is a mainstay for me. And Crew Fiber. I’m also gonna try the Pete & Pedro next. Here’s what I’m looking to find out. Crew Boost Powder ?!? Can you review it? I’ve been reading about it. Was wondering if I can get the same results using Crew Fiber and Baby Powder. And it did change the hold of the Fiber but couldn’t really see any difference in thickness. As I get older I’m getting thinner Nd wonder if boost powder may be an option. But it’s an expensive trial to do. One last thing, when using the Boost powder should I use a gel, pomade (hate), Fiber or paste with it. Hope to see your review of it soon.

You can’t watch a video review of hair products for men because the texture of every man’s hair is different. A product not working for one persons hair would work well on another’s.

I don't mind OldSpice Forge Putty. I rather like the smell, but its just so damn strong. Hell, I smell it in my hair the next day after shampoo AND conditioner. I however recommend Pacino's products. They smell decent, not too strong, and they hold pretty decently. If you want a decently cheap, halfway decent water based pomade, I recommend their pomade.
jacob Johnson (1 month ago)
I use the old spice, it works well for people who like to keep their hair short(like me) I’d go no longer than 2.5-3in for a good hold.

Morten Aanstad (1 month ago)
I have no idea why you would apply it in your hair *before* blow-drying; they're not pre-stylers. The reason why you're able to style afterwards without a post-styler is because your hair is naturally healthy and voluminous, but that's misleading to the rest of us

Morten Aanstad (1 month ago)
Hair gel is awful, and I don't see the use of hair spray unless you're trying to out give the illusion that a bad product actually has good hold
j ram (1 month ago)
You know I hear it's bad to wash your hair everyday and a lot because you wash off the natural oils or something from your hair and scalp and can cause extreme dandruff. Well if that's the case, how do you remove hair product from your hair if you aren't supposed to wash your hair everyday and you style your hair almost everyday?

Not sure if anyone has commented about this yet. But the wave products for my brothers are much better than any of the crap marketed to us white boys. Head to the non ether centric section and get some Murray's, dax, or 360 style. Been using it in my hair since my roommate in college introduced it to me.

In Australia we call "AXE" "LYNX" and i can say from my experience that the product you used didn't give a very good representation of the brand considering that the stuff i use is no where near that bad

Just gonna say though, I'm not biased i just think that the brand isn't as bad as your experience

I use a prestyler blow dry then finish with one of three products, then lock with hairspray. I don't blow dry with the striking cream. If I did, I'd put more to lock.

I used the orange axe for about a year and my barber started to comment on my hair, asking what product i used for my hair because my hair condition was getting worse. I use the got 2 b now and my hair just looks and is a lot better than it used to.

I’ve had better with crew fiber when used it on my cold hair while it was almost dry. Water kills the hold and so does heat. After I styled I would use hair spray to help hold. After all that my hair would look too perfect is “gelled” so I fished by messing it up and breaking a little bit of the hair spray hold. So crew fiber can work well it just takes extra steps.
Alex Bennett (1 month ago)
I agree 100% with what you said about American crew fiber 👌🏽

Hands down, best water-based pomade in the world is from Japan...Fiber Grease. Works best on nearly dry hair. You can re-comb it and it washes out.

Just letting you know, I had that same dove product. It was great, it made my hair soft and , easy to move. But it had almost no hold. So I recommend using it as a pre styler. It works great.
Bret Michaels (1 month ago)
I went and did the same thing with the same products. Old Spice surprised me the most. If you use less than you’re supposed to use it works great.

Start from the top toward the back of your head with the product and work your way forward
