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.

Crews pomade is good for shorter hair. Doesn’t have the hold for alphas length
sMiLey Warrior (2 days ago)
The best thing to do is in the store is to open the product and find one that’s filled to the top so you don’t end up going home and wonder in confusion. Also most of the time the product is measured in weight. It’s like buying a bag of family sized lays chips only to go home and find that it’s only half filled and the other half was just air. It is what it is but as a consumer you do expect the product to be full to the top. I have not tried any of these products but I have never liked Axe products. Got2b is also another shitty brand including old spice. I like using L’Oréal products for men but it’s been a while since I’ve used their products. I typically just put castor oil in my hair or jojoba oil. Don’t put castor oil if you plan on smelling nice cuz the smell is just out of this world lol. Better to use jojoba oil if you’ll be around people. Not to be used as a styling product but more so of a conditioning hair product.

You use a hairdryer?! A hair dryer....? Archaic form of hair styling. Pomade, rub thru hair and go. Btw, Axe "Clean" Pomade is the best. Not messy and leaves your hair soft and looks great.

+S. Kdt You're from 1st world country. How can your English be poor? English isn't my first language either, but just look at me!
S. Kdt (2 days ago)
+Morten Aanstad if you were Dutch I'd give you a better explanation
S. Kdt (2 days ago)
+Morten Aanstad I did not mean that I use wax or water based gel and btw I'm not that dumb my English is not so very good
Morten Aanstad (2 days ago)
+S. Kdt Water-based wax doesn't exist. If something is water-based, then it's either a paste, cream, or a putty. A wax needs to be wax-based in order to be called a wax. There are a bunch of oil-based putties, paste, and clays. Poor quality oil-based products may leave a greasy finish, but the most premium ones leave a matte finish. The oil just provides nutrition and is easier to work with. If it's oil-based and leaves a shiny finish, then it's a pomade, but the best quality ones leave a naturally shiny finish nevertheless. I'd have thought you had more knowledge than this
S. Kdt (4 days ago)
are those oil based?

I like the old spice “spiffy” pomade but I absolutely hate the putty

Try the Garnier, I think it's probably putty or matte or wax. The container was black and green and the material inside was Orange like substance. Also there is Bed Head Tigi.

Matt 7351936 (21 days ago)
Hey Alpha! I fixed the hold problem with the old spice putty! There is a gel you can get from dove, the control gel fixant, that you put into your when dry or damp, and you style it to your side part look, then you put in the putty and it creates a strong hold. And surprisingly, using the gel still keeps your hair looking natural, or undone. It works really great! If you try it out let me know what you think!

The dryness might be from washing your hair so much because if you wash it to much your washing out your nature greeces
