Desperately need a MOUSSE for 4B hair

BluejacketsgirlBluejacketsgirl Registered Users Posts: 94
One of my best friends just found out her precious mousse is being discontinued. She does not like gel and has had very little luck with any gels (As I Am brand was the last one she tried and it turned her hair to "total frizz" as she said)...

I don't know enough about 4B hair to help her, but she needs a very thick, creamy mousse that doesn't turn to water when its in your hands.

ANY recommendations would be so very welcome.

THANK YOU in advance!!

    My hair hates mousse but I know SM and design essentials make them. The S M one I found at Walgreens and I ended up giving it away I think.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    It's called Define Freedom. I have never heard of it. But she is so sad b/c it's being discontinued. It's all she's used for years.

    There's a mousse by design freedom (designing mousse) that's available from Amazon, maybe the same one?

    Ohhhh. By Zotos. They also make my HG Volumax Meg's and recently discontinued it. They must either have gone under or are revamping everything. I found Nexxus Volumizing mousse has similar ingredients.

    Herbal Essence Set Me up mousse is also similar.

    does she use CG friendly products? if not she can try suave curls mousse it comes in like a purple/silver can and it's really thick and creamy. i find it works really well if you don't use too much!

    I used to use mousse all the time when I 1st bc'd. I can't think of one that I really liked. However it was at Walgreens & had olive oil in it which gave it good slip.
