    I started CG on this and then moved on to more "exciting" products. The other night I was going through my bathroom cabinet and decided to try it and HETT gel again. I got AMAZING curls. A-MAZE-ING. It's making me re-think my recent CJ order!

    Yep, putting product in soaking wet hair is the best way to apply it, in my opinion. Try scrunching it in...it'll encourage curl formation :)

    The HE body envy mousse works really good to. I use a good amount to get good coverage especially since I add it to soaking wet hair. Scrunching out the water removes some of the product anyway.

    Last night I bought this at CVS (Texas) for $2.88 on sale!! Today I applied it over a CJ leave-in and homemade butter. My hair is really curly and it smells good. It has a soft hold and no crunch. I'm definitely going back to buy more.

    So, I got HETT mousse. I cowashed/rinsed out with GFTN, used a penny-sized blob of DoC smoothed over the canopy, then scrunched in two foamy palms full of mousse on wet hair. I'm attaching wet and dry pics. I really like this combo--soft hold, little frizz, touchable hair.

    And it was $.99 at CVS!

    Okay. So I tried this stuff out.

    I have tried three different combos with this stuff, and I can't seem to make it work. My hair always feels dry, not shiny at all, and I get lots of surface frizz. Sigh...

    But because I love cheap, CG products, I won't give up on it yet. I really want to make this work!

    Anyway, I appreciate everyone's reviews!

    I did not like the HETT Mousse, because it did not hold my curls. It made my hair unmanagable. My curls would not be define, and look nice. I tried Herbal Essence Body Envy Mousse, and has a better hold that HETT Mousse. My hair last all day with Herbal Essence Body Envy Mousse.My hair loves creams instead of mousse.

    I tried this but it made my hair producty, and sticky. I tried less - same thing. Doesn't work for me.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    I think this works better on people with thick curlier hair, it worked great on me but I find people with thinner hair or wavy hair have trouble with this mousse.

    I love this stuff. I use it in the summer but its too crunchy for the winter
