MFH says

You can see why American Crew Fiber has become so iconic. When it was launched in the 90s, it was like nothing else out there.

Fast forward 20+ years and the market has grown and product technology has advanced.

This product is no-frills and styles fine, but is it something I reach for or get excited using? No!

I’d cast my eye to Label.M Matt PasteBumble and bumble Sumotech or even a hair clay.

It’s a fairly basic hair styling product.

Soft but waxy in consistency; but easily worked through the hair.

Styles well with resistance and grip that can be used to add volume to the hair.

What They Say

“Fiber-like, resinous product helps thicken, texturize and increase fullness to hair. Provides a strong, pliable hold with a matte finish. Works well in shorter hair, 1-3 inches in length. For high hold with low shine.”
