Looking for Mousse Recs for Fine Hair

CTcurlygirlCTcurlygirl Posts: 15Registered Users Curl Neophyte
Hi curlies! I am looking for recs for mousse. I have very fine, low porosity 3a-3b hair that is very easily weighed down and loves mousse much more than gel. My hair seems to love a less is more approach and I am trying to streamline to as few products as possible which seems to be the way my hair wants to go. I have not noticed any protein or other sensitivity. The characteristics in a mousse that I need most are:

- curl enhancing / encouraging
- volume enhancing / does not weigh down
- moisturizing
- provides decent hold
- CG friendly

I would LOVE any recs!! :)

    I have fine type 3 curls too and love mousse. I recommend either the Tresemme Flawless Curls or Extra Firm Control Mousses. They're cheap, easy to find, CG-friendly and help with volume/hold. The Flawless Curls mousse is more moisturizing for sure.
