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!! :)

    You could try the Deva Volumizing Foam. I didn't have luck with it (it made my hair sticky), but I do think that it has more hold than some other mousses.

    I use Devacurl's Volumizing Foam with a bit of Wave Maker and then scrunch til my hair is barely damp.  My hair is pretty fussy about getting weighed down, so minimal products is my preference as well, and I try not to leave my hair soaking wet for too long.  Best results I've had so far!
    2C Fine, long hair, a ton of it. Blonde balayage. East Coast Canadian. 

    Wash: Live Clean Fresh Water Hydrating Shampoo
    Monthly Scalp Cleanse: Baking Soda/Conditioner/Peppermint Essential Oil
    CO: Garnier Whole Blends Legendary Olive Conditioner
    Styling: Devacurl Volumizing Foam, Devacurl Wave Maker, Garnier Curl Treat Jelly
    Refresh Day: Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle, Devacurl Supercream
    Deep Condition: Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Treatment

    My whole wash routine is upside-down... detangling, rinsing, applying products, scrunching, diffusing... the bigger the waves, the better!
