I received this mousse as a sample and I really like it. It felt like no other mousse I've ever tried before, ever. This is like a combo of mousse + a texturizer, like a pomade. Let me explain my experience... it's a bit unnerving when you first use it because at least for me it dried rock hard in my hair (I air-dry my hair) I brushed it out and then it almost felt like I had a texturizing product, like a pomade, in my hair that I was able to play around with it. This gave me crazy sick volume when I brushed my hair upside down the following day! My hair was so big that I had to pat it down...LOL. So not only does this deliver the much needed volume that I've been looking for (extremely baby fine wavy hair) but the ability to tousle and play around with my layers. Soooo weird but I freakin love this stuff!
