Something heavier than this stuff?
Also I made another comment where I mentioned the full routine (guessing I wasn't done typing it when you posted) but I do comb it.
Not sure where you are buying your American Crew, but this will have to be free if its $10 cheaper than it is on Amazon.
As other have mentioned I think different frames would do well for you. Could try contacts if you like you’re look without glasses. Side note: I ended up getting Lasik after my eyes stopped changing for a couple of years. It’s not exactly cheap but it’s worth it in my opinion.
I would clean up your stache too. You can grow a good one so keep it if you want it. We can’t see your neck here but be sure to keep that shaved if you’re doing a beard too. Generally furry necks aren’t as well received.
Try something different with your hair. The product you’re using makes it look greasy. You and I have similar hair (thick and kinda wavey) and I have tried pomades, fibers, gels and what I ended up liking the best is just a blow drier with no product. I liked crew fiber too but the blow drier is just easier .
The way I get my hair cut is #3 on the sides that blend up to about 2.5 inches on top. Blow dry and bush back and to the side. Easy, quick, and I get complements on my hair often. Might work for you too?
I'm pretty sure what your asking for is impossible. I use this personally and it is the closest to that I've found.
I towel dry my hair so it is still a little damp, rub a little less than an olive size mound of product evenly on my fingers, apply evenly to hair, then blow dry into desired style. My hair feels different with product but I can still run my fingers through with no resistance. Not sticky unless you apply it while your hair is dry. Blow dry is absolutely crucial for hair to hold up.
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but where do you buy american crew fiber clay?? I'm looking on amazon and like theres one result :|
EDIT: Nvm... lol... is this it?
I like American Crew Fiber. I put it into towel dried hair(still pretty damp) and blow dry into the style I like. This gives it a matte look and it doesn't feel sticky in your hair. My style is less messy since I need to look professional for work but you can mess it up with your fingers after it's mostly or completely dry.
You could also try a hair spray to get a more matte look, but you can't touch it after.
I used to only shampoo once every 2-3 days cause people say shampooing daily is bad for your hair, but now I do it daily and it seems to just look and feel cleaner. And I use american crew fiber but you can use any sort of low shine, high hold clay/putty
Thanks for the feedback!
Currently I'm using the American Crew Fiber which is labeled as a creme, but it has more of a wax feel to me.
Here's a link to it on Amazon, but you might find a better deal on it elsewhere if you do choose to get it.
This stuff is pretty good
As far as the hairloss, just make due for now. Technology should get better over the next few years. There is also the option of beard transplants which is cheaper and less demanding than a hair transplant if you are a high norwood. Just exercise, eat right, and relax. You can also try minoxidil or Finasteride. The latter has some side effects though, so be wary.
Maybe not exactly pomade but this stuff works really well. It does not shine at all and acts like clay/pomade. Does not make your hair stiff either but it just stays in place. It is nice.
For starters, try grabbing some matte product and playing around with your hair. American Crew Fiber is a favorite of this sub, and in my personal experience is pretty decent, especially for short hair like yours.
Some hair products have strong, matte holds and they're typically called "fiber." It makes your hair look thicker and it holds well. Example.

I was thinking about trying this one
But I don't know...
I like the haircut that you've attached. Also, I know how hard it is to style hair like yours so I am going to offer you a game changer. Use this American Fiber - Hair styling creme.
I use it every day and it works with very stiff hair that sticks up like yours. How do I know? Because I have the same kind of hair. I always hated my hair until i found styling creme. This is the best brand I've discovered so far
Also, as a tip, just in case you aren't sure of how to talk your barber about how to get that hairstyle, just ask for a #2 on the sides and back, straight cut up for the sides, and longer on the top and front.
Here's also a good reference for talking to your barber:
