Wavy Girls: What is your favorite mousse?

AnnieHeartEcoAnnieHeartEco Posts: 13Registered Users
I really want to try out a good mousse (not the white-ish goop-like drugstore stuff, but a good foamy, silicone free mousse) and was wondering which ones you guys liked and recommended! I want something that defines my wavies and adds volume, without crunch, stiffness, weight (the enemy of my hair!)

I was interested in trying either the DevaCurl Frizz Free Volumzing Foam, Ouidad PlayCurl Mousse, or Hair Rules Wavy Mousse (though apprehensive of some of the ingredients).

Have you guys tried any of these? What were your results? What other mousses do you like?

    I love moroccanoil curl mousse. It's pretty expensive, but unlike any other mousse I've used and I have gone through a lot.

    Next, I'm going to try the moroccanoil volumizing mousse.

    To clarify, I mean I have used a lot of different types of mousse. Lol. The Moroccanoil mousse lasts me around 2 months.

    Thanks for asking this, I just decided I'm going to try a mousse for the first time.

    Like claudine said, I really like the Kenra Curl Glaze Mousse. Not stiff or sticky, not drying, and really curls up my hair without any frizz. I'm not sure if it's CG though. I can't find the ingredients and haven't used it in a while.

    I just tried the Hair Rules Wavy Mousse... It's a no go :sad: Puffy, dry, frizzy, ugliness with diffuser. No definition either. And air dried, it makes no difference in my hair's appearance.
    Returning it.
    On to other mousses (moussi? definitely not meesse) !

    Lol, I gotcha! I may try the Moroccan Oil mousse next... I found it at a pretty good price on amazon: Amazon.com: Curl Control Mousse: Beauty It doesn't make your hair crunchy at all?

    Not crunchy like gel at all. I'm not sure how to describe the crunch, but it's very soft! I will actually use this stuff and let my hair air dry in public. I won't with any gel or any other mousse I've tried.

    Also a fan of Moroccan oil mousse. I use the volume one and really like it. It gives me much better curl and hold than the Ouidad Playcurl mousse. I alternate now between gel and mousse. Mousse give me more volume and less hold than gel so it's a nice change when I don't feel like waiting all morning to scrunch gel.
    (And hi AKgirl! Haven't seen you around lately.)

    I like the HETT mousse in normal dews a lot, sometimes I'll use the HETMS mousse over another gel for more volume (HETMS doesn't have quite enough hold for me on its own).

    One that I really do like that doesn't get a whole lot of press around here is Suave's Volumizing mousse (silver can, purple cap). It's a creamy mousse that isn't loaded with humectants. I used it all last winter in really low dew points, and am experimenting with it a little in higher dews right now.

    I'm not sure anything is going to help me with high dew points, though! :angryfire:

    I've only used the deva curl mousse, the only thing I have an issue with it is the price. It leave my waves soft but with good definition.

    I used to use Sebastian Whipped Cream, it has the texture of mousse but it really isn't a mousse, it's more conditioning and has keratin in it.
