I want to know about the new Coconut Hibiscus mousse!

Has anyone tried it? will someone please review it? I cannot find it locally. I would also like to know the ingredients, and if anyone is able to compare it to the Deva Foam, which I would love to find a replacement for, because of the price.

Also has anyone tried the Coconut Hibiscus conditioner?

    Myrna,

    I thought of you yesterday while at Sally's. While there, I saw a few different volumizing foams. I can't remember the brands, but one may be similar to the Deva foam.

    Sorry, but I do not know about the SM mousse. :)

    Here is one of the ones I saw at Sally's, though there were two others there that are not on the website.

    Oh, thank you so much, Jules! I will have to make a trip there..pray for me : ) Ill look for the Mane Boost, and see also if there are other styling foams - I need to stock up on my GVP conditioning Balm. I also get my Biotera gel there - both are great products.

    I have tried the SM mousse, and I have also tried the Deva mousse! Although my hair is not fine, it occasionally seems to get weighed down, thus my mousse purchases.
    I bought the SM mousse first, and I have to say that although I love absolutely everything else in their line (esp their new cowash), I wasn't a huge fan of the mousse. That is to say, I didn't dislike it, but I was just kind of neutral. It seems to be conditioning and non-greasy, which is great, but it doesn't seem to DO anything to my hair, if that makes sense. I was slightly crunchy after using it, and that's the only effect I could discern.
    The Deva mousse, on the other hand, has definite effects. It holds my hair in position almost as well as a gel and it seems to be curl-enhancing (although I don't know if that was the mousse or just a good dew day, lol). Thus far i have definitely preferred it to the SM.
    Having said this, I've only given the SM two tries, so I'll update if I try it again! I've seen a couple other reviews floating around; hopefully those folks and others will chime in! :)

    My hair also isn't fine and I usually detest mousses, but this one I want to try simply because it's by SM. However I did restrain myself to ordering only one bottle. I'm buying it for my mother.That is how I'm justifying the purpose. Should I happen to drop by her bathroom counter one day and some mousse accidentally happen to foam itself all over my hair, well, that's just serendipitous, isn't it?

    P.S. I also bought the Yucca conditioner. But it was BOGO people! :blob8:

    I know, I know, I'm terrible. :tongue8: Last month I got her some deva one conditioner and made an excuse to use her shower. (Smelled good but wasn't moisturizing enough for me.) But mom benefits from my product junkieness so it's all good karma-wise. :toothy10:
