Hair thinning is an alarming problem in both men and women. Starting from pollution to an unhealthy lifestyle- you’ll find a lot of reasons behind hair thinning. The problem is- you won’t find so many solutions that can help you with this hair thinning issue. 

There are a lot of hair-thickening shampoos in the market and I’m sure you’re looking for an effective one. American Crew Acumen Daily Thickening shampoo is one of the thickening shampoos specially made for men. 

The products from American Crew are authentic, effective, and dependable. But that is not adequate to make a decision of picking it. That’s why you’re looking for reviews, I know.

Don’t worry. I’ve used this shampoo for a few months. So, I’m sharing my experience of using it and its performance. This will support you to make a better buying decision. 

But before going to the review, let’s talk a bit about American Crew.

About American Crew

American Crew is a well-known personal care brand focused on men. It started its journey in 1994 by a stylist named David Raccuglia. He could realize that men are focusing more and more on their beauty and personal care. So, he started this brand to design products for men so that they can take care of their looks and skin without losing their masculinity.

This brand has developed a lot of different types of products for body, hair, and shaving for men. The journey is still continuing and the product line is being extended.

It contains trademarked AC ACUMEN COMPLEX that comes with vitamins known for moisturizing agents and antioxidants. As a result, it keeps your scalp hydrated and healthy. 

Also, Keratin Amino Acids are there in this shampoo that works for improving hair structure


The shampoo is a moderately thick liquid with a brownish color. At first glance, you may think that it is a face wash or something. With a smooth texture, it ensures a good hand-feel. 

The bottle that contains the shampoo is not transparent. A Brown bottle with a silver-colored label is a signature of American Crew. I like the overall appearance.


It lathers up easily and quickly. So, you won’t have to apply a lot. 

Wet your hair properly. Make sure that water has reached all over your scalp. Then, take some shampoo on your palm and apply it to your hair and scalp. Massage properly for 2-3 minutes. Lastly, rinse it off from your hair properly.

The Result

I was satisfied with this shampoo after the first use. It lathered up quickly. Also, it left a scent on my hair. I like it though I’ve seen a lot of reviews saying that the scent is not that pleasant. It cleaned my scalp and gave me a feeling that I’d lost some weight from my head. 

It was gentle on my scalp. The overall experience of applying it to my hair for the first time was good.

But I was looking for the result I was looking for thick hair.

Though it can be used daily, I used to use it on alternate days. 

I started seeing improvement after a week. It was just a visible improvement and my hair was looking thicker. But the thin strands didn’t turn thicker. It was just an illusion I guess.

Within a month, it made my hair look better. People started thinking that I’d gone through some kind of treatment. But, still, it was an illusion as I didn’t see much improvement in the thickness of hair strands. Those were shinier and better, but still thin. 

So, I thought of applying the shampoo every day. 

After the next month, there was no visible improvement in hair strands. I found that the rate of breakage is lower than before. This has influenced the look of my hair for sure. Just like before, my hair was looking fuller. 

So, I decided to stop using it and look for something that can reduce hair fall from the root.

Overall, I was not totally dissatisfied with American Crew Acumen Daily Thickening shampoo. It does what it says- calmly cleaning the scalp and visibly improving the thickness of hair. So, I can’t complain actually. 

I just expected more and it couldn’t provide that. That’s why I had to change it. 

Comparing the price and result, I think it is not a bad choice if you just want your hair to look thicker.

Final Verdict

If you’re looking for something that can improve your hair strands and make those thicker, this is not the one you should go for. But it can make your hair look fuller and better. 

So, would you go for it?

The decision is yours. Picking it is not a bad decision if fuller-looking hair is the only expectation.
