I love this mousse! My hair is a combination of wavy and curly and because it's so thick and heavy, I prefer a mousse as my styling aid. I have tried many mousse's, and this is one I would definitely repurchase! After washing my hair, this is the only styling product I use, and then blow-dry with a diffuser and I achieve voluminous, shiny, controlled loose curls! My curly hair has rarely ever looked this nice! This has pretty gold holding power, which surprised me because I wasn't expecting any from a "soft hold" mousse. This best part is that this smells so amazing, after using this I walk around all day surrounded by this wonderful aroma! This product makes me want to try the other two herbal essences mousse's, "Totally Twisted" and "Body Envy", and see how they compare to this one!
This did nothing for my curls. It weighed them down and made them look wiry and gross.
Had high hopes for this mousse. Thought it was rubbish!! Didn't like the smell. It fizzed as soon as touched my hair and didn't stay creamy. After styling I looked like I was ready to haunt a house!! My ironing board has more body!!!
So for starters, my hair has choppy layers (shortest at around about 12cm) and goes down to waist length. My hair is very thin at my longest layers and is straight (not pin straight). The condition of my hair isn't the best.
When I originally bought this product, I was really looking for that beachy waves look.I opened it and it smelled AMAZING (like everyone else is saying on here). Not too overwhelming for me because I just love it so much. I give about 2 short pumps and put majority on my crown area and some on my bottom layers. When I began to blow dry and scrunch, my hair was quite stubborn. It would tousle a little bit but not a lot. So I was quite disappointed in that aspect. BUT for volume, it gave my hair amazing volume. Now maybe that's because of my choppy layers, but nonetheless I loved the fluffy volume it gave me.
It gives me some shine, not a lot. And the feel of the hair overall isn't that smooth, but 'fluffy'.
I don't use this product for the tousling effect anymore, but more for the volume!
Sadly, I will not repurchase. I got this at my local drugstore for $1.50 so super cheap. Like the bottle, standard mousse bottle.
The product can leave my hair crunchy and makes it hard to get second day hair if I use this the first day. HOWEVER, if I don't use this on the first day, I can scrunch this in and add hair spray to get second day hair.
It was a good price but sadly the product is just ok- nothing great. Still in search of HG curly wear for my hair.
The smell of this stuff is absolutely overwhelming and DISGUSTING. I had to wash my hair again after putting this stuff on, the smell won't quit !
Tousle me CRUNCHY, darlings! Hello, nightmare! - please do not buy this product. It's got a god-awful smell of toilet cleanser and my grandma's perfume, which you know, I COULD overlook if it didn't stick my hair together like superglue! I put it into my semi wet curls, and once it dried, it couldn't be pried apart - had to rewash and was NOT impressed. What's more, the packaging clearly eloped with whatever I was thinking when I bought this product - it broke on the third usage, and started issuing this squelchy sound, and lo and behold! Thou shakest and the liquid comes flying straight at your face.
It's cheap at three dollars, but it's three dollars well worth spent doing something else. Go buy a gelato, invest for one tenth of the shoe you've had your eye on. Just please don't buy this mousse.
I am still using this product. It has a different coloring, which by the way isn't a lovely purple like it used to be. I've gotten the wrong product several times because of the color change. I make sure to look for the word VIOLET on the back of the can. This is still the most wonderful and lovely smelling product that works for me! My hair is isn't kinky curly but it's curly, and the compliments I get week to week keep me using this product!
I've used this for quite awhile and have been amazed at how perfect my hair is each and every day no matter the weather. It leaves my hair shiny, I get asked all the time what hair products I use. The smell is amazing. Violet is my favorite scent! It's the scent of magical places, fairy tales, and princesses! Sadly enough, they have changed this. The packaging isn't as lovely of a deep purple, the scent is changed into nothingness, and the product doesn't seem to work quite as magical. It's just an average nice product now. It used to be when you found a good product, you bought it for the next thirty years! They change things too often now, and for no reason! It's sad to think some advertising company got paid for this! This product and Flex shampoo/conditioner were the ONLY two types of hair products that really left your hair scented to perfection.
This did nothing for my wavy hair, but weigh it down and left it feeling sticky and gross.
The packaging is nice and it seems very promising at first, but when I put the product through my hair nothing happened. I wanted scrunchy waves, but this doesn't do anything for me. Maybe it works better if you have curly/wavy hair already, since my hair is naturally straight.
