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.

I use Camel Cement. It has the best hold, never falls, and it gives you a grey dye.
American Crew is $30 minimum here in Australia :-(

I feel like you should've reviewed on different days, the act of repeatedly shampooing and hair drying your hair 5 times would've probably dried your hair out

Never trust a man who spends more than 2 minutes doing his hair.

I've always been sn American crew guy. Mostly because that's what they sell here. Plus it has elvis on the label and Elvis is a cool dude.

The axe hair product that he picked wasn’t that good the red one is like goo but the green axe is different texture and holds way better
Nic Whitehead (17 days ago)
How much better is Pete and Pedro's putty than american crew's fiber?
Artem Morozov (20 days ago)
All products are subjective including Pete & Padro. I tried the lateral, wasn't my cup of tea

Jayce (22 days ago)
You used the wrong axe product. What you used is for short hair for a messy spiky look. They have a good wax for long hair and natural which I use often. Both of those have a mild smell too. I work in a scent free office and not a soul smells it.
Tony Spark (23 days ago)
loreal pomade, also sold in my local drugstore, is pretty popular among us teens. What a shame you could not find it in yours, you might have liked it.
Morten Aanstad (2 days ago)
@Tony Spark I can't really see how L'Oréal has a good hold when my hair always flopped down after a couple of hours. Putting a little bit on the tip of my index finger, spreading it in my palm, and emulsifying is usually enough to give me good hold as long as the product is great. Sometimes I also use a pre-styler and blowdry before using the product to give better hold. Spending a little extra money on Pete and Pedro, Hanz de Fuko, or Blumaan are usually not a bad idea if you want an all-day hold and also nourish your hair. However, if I were to recommend some cheaper alternatives, then Fish Soho (red one) or Phenomenal Paste are pretty good. As for pomades, I recommend Black&White or Reuzel
Tony Spark (3 days ago)
@Morten Aanstad Cool, nice to hear another opinion on this. Tis true, L'Oreal does not have too much volume but I like the hold, I was using Old Spice Paste, which had literally, almost no hold so L'Oreal is a decent step up, but now I have used L'Oreal for awhile, should I move to American Crew or what? Do you have any good, affordable/student-priced recommendations? P.S.: I don't know how much you have to use to be able to hold your hair the way you want it to. I was always told to use a dime.
Morten Aanstad (6 days ago)
L'Oreal sucks so hard! Tried it for years and my hair either looked greasy, plastic-like, or damaged. No real volume either! After I upgraded my hair products my hair looked luxurious in comparison
Jacob Nunley (23 days ago)
You should try hats off pomaid
Jupacev (24 days ago)
You chose the wrong one from Axe, I think the purple Pomade is the best one! The American crew is good but it is not water based.
mitchell buffington (24 days ago)
Idk man I like the old spice fiber wax. Then again I don’t use half the jar in a go.
Quinn Brown (24 days ago)
Yo Alpha you should try The product called Johnny B molding paste, that’s what I use I want to see what your rating is!!!
Andrew Dickens (25 days ago)
The last one you used made it look the best though
Jack Surette (25 days ago)
The old spice was bad and dry b/c of the one you picked you picked the really strong smelling one not the light and shined

I wish you would comb your hair so we can see how it looks with a clean look. I don’t blow dry my hair so this review want much of a help except for how it would look after blow dried.

I think axe is meant to smell strong is what they promoted and one of the reasons I use it sometimes. Is very powerful manly smell will surely have people notice.

The Axe messy look is by far my fav out of all the ones that were at the store. Its not oil like at all. Its a paste and can hold really good with help of one quick spray of hairspray

Twitchy Paladin (1 month ago)
I'm using old spice matte finish pomade rn because I'm blonde and not sure if shine is good for me. My brother uses old spice paste edit: yeah that's why i hate axe. Their shampoo ruined my hair and gave me dandruff. I dont use their products anymore. Their deodorant also doesn't work. Use arm and hammer or old spice or mitchum for anti persperant those actually work. I sweat a lot.
JW Hoadley (1 month ago)
Alpha, Alpha, at 60 I'm still working the locks and have purchased the P&P Creme to try. More on that later, after I try it out. After bailing on the LALooks Super hold Gel (What was I thinking) for many years, I picked up CREMO. I've been using the CREMO Barber Grade Medium Hold, Medium Shine Forming Cream or the Light Hold, Low Shine Natural Look Cream for about two years. I use less of the former than the latter because I don't like the helmet head feel. I like to see you try these for another 'cheaper' option comparison video. Slainte mahr!
Johan Walte (1 month ago)
I use American Crew, but i put it in my hair after i blow dry it. After that i give a quick spray of hairspray all around and it holds perfectly all day without having a crunchy texture. It feels like normal hair but looks great. Also it's key to style it correctly with the hairdryer
Scorpion S (1 month ago)
Johan Walte the fiber one? Would it work for medium hair lenght to the nose? I just bought
