    I like the hold and matte finish of the forming creme...about to run out and want to try something different (been using this for a couple years now). I find pomade to be too greasy for my liking and I dont want crunchy hair or anything too shiny.

    What are some similar products to AC Forming Cream/Fibre Putty?
    :)

    hold is not very strong, but its not greasy and matte finish....it's more of a finishing product

    one of my friends uses it in conjunction with the hold spray and it seems to hold pretty well without being crunchy or shiny
    http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P104711&categoryId=RPYMAL&shouldPaginate=

    that combination is on the expensive side though

    this shit is literally like glue. You have to shampoo your hair twice to really get it out if you use a lot. I tried it before and it holds strong, but for like $5 a tube, you do get what you pay for.

    How does it compare to AC fiber?

    I've been looking for something else that works the same way as the fibre but maybe a bit stronger
