American Crew Review: Who Trusts Them?

Published by:

American Crew products review

I was concerned about American Crew and how they have made a name when it comes to men’s head hair. Seeing the products rocking everywhere I look for hair styling crèmes meant that the male world had built trust over the extended period of use. We have always picked Crew’s products when hair needs some drastic transformation.

Now, Grooming Adepts has featured four of the products I think, recommending them for different reasons. The type of hair is always the critical decider to which of the four you should go for, but I was interested in three. Here is what the people from www.groomingadepts.com had to say about what I selected as my favorites American Crew products.

AMERICAN CREW’S FIRM HOLD STYLING GEL

You cannot compare gels to other hair products since they don’t last for long. However, the American Crew’s Firm Hold Styling Gel gains the trust of sticking around your hair just like the strong hair products in the market. The gel is excellent when it comes to holding onto your hair giving you a natural look even when you overdo it.

What I like about the Gel

It stays on your hair: It is a superb alternative to crèmes, clays, and pomades. The gel is stronger on your hair and holds for long – all day to be precise. It is also light on your hair, so it’s even hard to notice something is up there once you are done applying.

  • Does not flake: There are hair gels that dispose flakes on your shoulder if you apply too much. Not for the American Crew’s Firm Hold Styling Gel. Styling your hair with this product will not make your shoulders dirty when it becomes too much.
  • Wet and dry hair application: Some products need to be applied on damp hair. For this one, dry or wet hair will do without too much struggle. This means that you can do it at any time of the day.
  • Promotes healthy hair: There are natural extracts in the gel that enable hair to grow thick and voluminous. You get a shine after application, and it is alcohol-free according to the review. Your hair will be healthy as time goes by.

AMERICAN CREW MOLDING CLAY

Research on Grooming says that this clay is not for every hair. Despite the small flaw, it is a versatile styling tool for the hair which offers a natural medium shine. It holds all day long without fading and does not mess around your clothes during the first hour of application. Guys with normal hair can go for it, and though not for every hair, it accommodates a variety of hairstyles.

What I like about the clay

Holds for long: Clays are known to hang on to your hair for long, and this one is no exception. So, don’t be afraid to style your hair using the Molding Clay even for the most demanding hairstyles.

  • Has a medium shine: I would call it a natural look. The clay blends with your hair to give you what they call a medium shine. So, people will know that your hair looks fresh or okay, but they will not know what the secret is.
  • Works for a variety of hairstyles: Well, it is not for everyone, but most of the styles will do with this product. If you comb it back, tease it out or just keep it clean, the clay will not disappoint.
  • Long lasting: Like earlier stated, clays are known to stick around so this one will stay on your hair all day. You won’t need a re-touch sometime in the day.

AMERICAN CREW POMADE

Do you want to go all natural but have a high shine? The Crew Pomade gives a medium hold apart from answering the question and works well for a slick back look. It is great if you are looking forward to going sheen. Unlike what other products will portray on your hair, there is no artificial damage done on your after an extended period of use. Also, it doesn’t have that chemical smell that will tell everyone there is something more on your hair.

What I like about the Pomade

  • It is all natural: Going natural is good and healthy for your hair. Too many chemicals in a product pose a danger to your hair as it might fall out or become weak after continued use. The pomade has no synthetic additives.
  • Ideal for straight hair: It will cater for your hair if you own the straight type. Guys with thicker hair also find it useful as it can soften your curls.
  • No wet look upon shining: Some of us will have shiny hair that looks watery after a hair styling tool has been used. This one will not give you that since it is made to repel moisture properties.

Free Music Distribution – Which Website is Best?

Published by:

music distribution

Before I started recording and making my own music, I never realized how much work went into making a single song. The whole process, from writing to distributing, can take several hours. But when you get to hear the final product and have it available to buy on several platforms, it is a great moment. Since you’re reading this, I assume you’re interested in recording and distributing your own music. Whether you are simply doing it as a hobby, or a way to make money, there are several ways of going about the process of getting your music distributed. The traditional way takes a bit longer and involves finding a distribution company willing to distribute your music, the shorter way is for you to do it for yourself. For times sake, I will assume you already have a studio setup or a studio that you can record in. If you don’t have one, check out my article on how to setup a beginner studio at home.

The type of music you are making will determine the process you will follow. For example, if you are making rock or country music, you might have to record each instrument separately and piece it together. But, if you are planning on making electronic beats, you will only have to record the vocals and you will lay it over the beats you make. If you plan on making electronic beats, make sure you have the right equipment. You will need more than just the regular home studio setup because you will need a way to actually make the beats, and regular recording software won’t do that.

You will almost always start with the actual songwriting though, which is almost always the hardest part for me. Getting into the right mindset can be difficult, and writer’s block can be all too real. But once you get the song written and you know how you want the tune you are ready to move forward and start practicing and getting ready to record. Recording can look different for different people and different music. Some people will choose to record lots of different versions of the same line and pick the best one and some people will practice over and over and only record the final product. Check out my article on the equipment you will need to make your own beats at home.

Either way, once you are done recording and editing, you will then have to decide how you want to distribute it. You could always post it on youtube, or soundcloud, but it is really hard to make money that way when everyone can just listen to it for free. To make money, you’ll also have to get it on itunes, Google play, and places like that. The fastest and easiest way to do this is using One Way Distro. One Way Distro is a free digital music distribution site that will automatically distribute your music to several different platforms, like iTunes.

Once you start bringing in money, you can withdraw the funds directly from the website and keep up to 90% royalties on all of your music. I have had a better experience using One Way Distro than any other music distribution method. It’s very easy to set up an account and they have great customer support, so any problems you have are quickly resolved.

If you have music that you are just itching to get released One Way Distro can be used to make that a reality. Anybody can use the site and it is totally free.

Mostly every type of video game (even those ‘violent’ first-person shooters), require planning of some sort. The planning done is a strategy method in order for you or your team to succeed in the current task. Most strategy games or ones that involve any type of strategy help you improve on being observant, whether it’s a small-scale 2D flash game on a website, or a game like Warhammer that requires an insane amount of strategy to win and dominate. While some video games can cause frustration, it’s important that you ween out the negative ones and breathe in potential winners that’ll improve your work.

Improvement of spatial awareness and other motor skills: Whether you’re someone young at school or someone at work who has a deadline to meet multiple times a day, video games can help improve your spatial awareness and motor skills. There are some military groups that use types of video games to simulate and train their soldiers and pilots in order to improve their spatial awareness. Even for small flash games, there can be a bit of improvement on the worker or pupil. The response time and reflex, as well as attention improvement are just two of the motor skill benefits that can be had from playing a decent strategy game.

Improving your self-control: If you’re someone who wants to play on your phone constantly or eat as a means of distracting yourself from school or work, play a nice flash strategy game to keep your phone battery charged, and to keep your mind from constantly munching on snacks at work. You’ll be able to improve your self-control, and curb the desires for those yummy foods that you’re constantly craving. Video games are a way of healthy escapism that can improve other areas of your life, as well – including how you perform at work.

You won’t have to worry about taking up too much bandwidth or having to save your game and come back to it later.

5 Kids Hair Growth Products Options

Published by:

kids and hair growth

There are different reasons why people seek hair growth products for kids. It may be to re-grow hair that was lost from a medical disease or just the desire to quickly get longer hair. Whatever the reason, thankfully there are products that can help do just that. Some need a prescription. However, there are many that are easily purchased without one.
Thymuskin

Thymuskin products are natural and come in the form of a shampoo, treatment, and gel. The shampoo can be used daily but twice a week is recommended. The treatment should be used twice a day for 8 to 12 weeks. The gel is used just before going to bed and left on. Usage of this product can discontinue after 12 to 18 months.

Griseofulvin

This prescription strength medicine is used to fight fungal infections like Tinea Captia. It is taken daily by mouth for two months. It is combined with a shampoo called Nizoral. This shampoo is used two to three times per week.

Steroid Injections

May be used by doctors when other options are not available or do not work. This method is sometimes used for Alopecia Areata which can be caused by an abnormality in the immune system.

Diphenylcyprone (DCP)

This is new hair growth medicine for suffers from Telogen Effluvium. Telogen Effluvium is hair loss resulting from extreme stress. Although in research it has seen positive results it is currently not recommended for children under the age of twelve. This is due to safety issues and the side effects that it causes.

Selenium sulfide

This is the main ingredient found in shampoos designed for kids that have hair loss due to Ringworm. Ringworm is a bacteria that is contagious to others.

When seeking a solution for your child’s hair loss, always speak with his physician before starting any program. Knowing the side effects, the length of time required to use the product, and the expected result is important before using any product for your child.
