    Using products will high hold to force your hair to lay back will ALWAYS make it look glued back, because that's what you're doing. Blow dry it back to get it to want to lay back, and don't stop right when it's dry, keep going for a minute and focus the heat at the root while you pull it back with a brush (go buy a Denman 9 row brush, they're $15, made in England, and have been a standard in every hairdresser's kit since the 1960's), and keep pulling it back as it cools (this "sets" the hair and makes it want to stay where it is when it cools. This is why the hairdryer has a cold button) then even if it's 70% of the way to laying back, your product only has to do 30% of the work you were asking it to do before. This means any one of those crew products you mentioned in the original post will work. Use something light (American Crew Fiber, Redken Rough Paste, ADH Dry, etc) and your hair will still move and fall naturally, or use something heavy (Layrite original pomade , Imperial classic pomade, etc) if you want it to look slick. Use a light product and follow it with a hairspray (Redken makes good ones that are simple to understand-- the higher the number on the can, the stiffer it holds) if you want to keep a lighter look with less movement throughout the day.

    New member 1st post. For what it's worth Badger Pomade is top notch for good hold and a clean natural look. I am happy I found it and wish I would have found it sooner. I tried Crew, Aveda, and many others, but always had issues. Of course it has its own application process, a little grainy out of the can, smooths out nicely in your palm, then applies easily and evenly. Nice smell, different, but I like it. Great stuff! Enjoy!

    Try John Masters Organics their hair product line are really good in term of efficiency, and on top are all natural so you don't have to "sacrifice" your hair or your scalp . Also most of product smell good due to natural ingredients.

    I was using before American crew before switching to John Masters Organics line, all I can say that I wish I had found earlier.
