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.

Hey Broski, Have you tried the Suave brand? It looks almost identical to the Dove brand, It’s in the same container except the Suave is a blue container obviously, I use it when I’m out of my other brand and I think it has a nice hold and shine, Doesn’t leave your hair feeling wax like and also has bounce to it while still remaining in place! You should try it! 🤙🏼

Sadly you bought the American crew at the grocery store professional products are never ever guaranteed when they’re bought at the grocery store. Most of them are well over four years old for starters have a do not even have the correct product in the bottles. A customer of mine but what she thought was Paul Mitchell clarifying shampoo and actually in the bottle was baby don’t cry shampoo. I also have a picture where someone thought they were buying a Chi product and when she peeled the wrapper found out it was actually in a Egyptian oil dry spray. (Or Moroccan. I can’t remember. Unless it comes from the salon I wouldn’t trust it. Also most salons tend to have those products on sale I know American crew every year goes on sale for 10.99 and lasts a whole month, for any of it

What the hell is the difference between putty, pomade, and gel. I hate gel, it is tacky more than regular, and I like more 'grease' based products.
STEPHENAUBREYdotcom (13 days ago)
I have tried tons. The dove SUCKS! Only good one is American crew... I've just been trying to find a cheap one but nothing is good as that. It's worth the extra $10.
SuperIronman911 (13 days ago)
Got2b is probably the worst. I used it for a week, my hair felt shabby and just no goodness. I threw away the remaining 90% of product in trash.

In my opinion, old spice forge putty is super good. It acts as a good prestyler almost as good as original by blumaan. It's really great that I'm using it instead of original

If you do moose and then American crew forming cream and then just keep it on there with the bit of hairspray it will last about 8 hours

Don't buy American Crew at a drugstore, as it might not be the same thing sold at hairstylists, etc. https://www.shefinds.com/why-you-should-never-buy-salon-hair-products-at-the-drugstore/

What is your opinion on panchinos? I always see them in styling videos and they sell them at target I've used all the products matte, creme, and pomade but what is your thoughts on them?
Michael Bodie (27 days ago)
This dude just straight up doesn’t know the fundamentals of styling hair. This is a joke. Also all those products, with the exception of maybe the AC, are complete trash.

My Stupid Media (27 days ago)
Review Men's Solutions and compare it to Pete and Pedro... I use Men's Solutions Hair Gel and it works great! However, I have short hair in the front and a buzz in the back, so my usage might be different than your usage. You can find men's Solutions at any Great Clips stores near you at a decently low price.

Axe is the best one if you use it correctly first you comb it let it dry then comb it again and looks fucken great
TheChosenOne (28 days ago)
Wetline Extreme in the black container for $1.99 hasn't failed me. I love that stuff. Washes quickly off your hands with water. Low fragrance smell and mixes well with AquaNet if you're driving with the top down. That combination is fantastic. I apply when my hair is almost dry and I get great results.
Saleem Ali (28 days ago)
L'Oreal paste
Syjinx (28 days ago)
Also, otherwise I've been using phenoMENal, smells great and does its job well in my opinion, but I'm looking to see how P&P putty does when I can afford it :)
Syjinx (28 days ago)
I've ordered mr pompador peppermint pomade, shampoo and conditioner, I remember the fragrance being strong, got it because I'm going to a ball and decided to go for the 50's slick back in my tailored suit, to which I'm delighted to see how that goes :P

Axe stinks so badly!!! 🤢🤮 I love the performance, it's great, but...the fragrance smells dirty. I used to use the metallic bluish purple one, which I think is the pomade.

American Crew is great for late Autumn and Winter because the temperatures are more accommodating for its holding power.

soo 2 things one is i usually straighten my hair cause its a lil wavy i guess i cant put product in my hair when its dry huh? and 2 i want something thats really easy to come out in the shower. i have not used a product in years.
Jessie Richards (26 days ago)
dylan cogdell I’ve tried all of these and more, and in my opinion, Pete & Pedro is my number one pick hands down. When I was in the Army, I would put it in and it stayed perfect through PT and washed out easy as washing off some dirt. My number two has to be American Crew. Hold’s not as great, but it’s pretty good , and washes out pretty decent. Göt2b is the absolute worst product I’ve ever used. It has virtually no hold and left my hair greasy and disgusting. Trying to wash it was like washing out glue

*To American Crew* : It is expensive. *Also to American Crew* : Its about the same price as Pete and Pedro. "Pete and Pedro is a ridiculously cheap product" Hmmmmmmm...
Jessie Richards (26 days ago)
Master Raisin it really is cheap compared to other high end products. It’s got some of the best ingredients for your hair and is my number one pick. American Crew is great, but has mediocre ingredients, so in a cost-to-quality comparison, American Crew is more expensive than it’s worth

American crew works better with thicker hair
