Suggestions for inexpensive CG mousse??

Hello! I have been searching around the forums to find a good mousse.. I want one that adds volume and holds curl and if course it has to be CG friendly at the moment I am using Shea moisture smoothie and curls goddess gel which I like but I want more volume... My hair has volume already but gel and leavein don't rlly cut it for the amount of volume IDE like.. So please any CG friendly suggestions for mousse would be great thanks so much in advanced :D

    Herbal Essences Totally Twisted mousse is CG. I haven't tried it on first day hair, but I've been using it for second-day hair with good results.

    Thank you! :) I was wondering about that one I might try it it's very inexpensive is it good for volume??

    I do get decent volume with it, but like I said, I've never used it on just co-washed hair.

    The only mousse I've ever really tried and liked consistently is the Aussie Aussome Volume mousse! :) It does its job well, and it's nice and cheap! It has nice hold and it's fairly light, but SOTC'ing can be a little difficult sometimes. And if you're looking for volume, it's pretty darn good at that, too. :)
    Type 2c/3a with lots of hair and a super sensitive scalp! Med/slightly coarse texture, low porosity and elasticity.

    Gonna have to try some of these out because I'm just starting CG to get my natural curls back and I need a mousse that will DEFINE my curls! I tried tresemme naturals lightweight mousse but it's not for curly hair specifically and it didn't do much at all :( the top of my hair is sooo limp and wavy, barely curly at all and te underside and fresher curls are sooo curly. What do I do?!

    Just bought the two herbal essence mousses and u should put less mousse on ur roots and more on ends also once ur CG curls r usually more defined but since ur roots are limp u should get a Lo-poo

    A lot of people like the Suave Capitavting Curls mousse. It's very creamy.

    Yesterday I styled with both herbal essences mousses and it looked ok a little straighter at the roots and looser stretched curls I prefer gel for first day.... But then this morning I scrunched in just the totally twisted info dry hair and got just about the best 2nd day hair I've ever had.... (though I never have been able to have decent 2nd day hair so I guess that doesn't mean much)
