Application is definitely key here. Some things I have noticed when using this: You have to use on wet hair, you have to have a base of either a styling cream or hair oil to counteract the drying effect since this does contain alcohol, and you don't need to use a lot. A golf ball sized amount is perfect for even my thick 3b curly hair. I think it smells lovely and seems to do a great job of boosting my curl pattern. My hair is left soft and defined which is hard to do. The shine was very good and had some nice compliments from strangers. My hair maintained its volume without feeling sticky or weighed down. Walmart had a good sale on this and I was able to get a big can. I think it provides decent hold. There was some crunchiness in some areas but nothing that can't be scrunched out with a bit of water. As for frizz reduction, it was ok. I noticed it took care of frizz initially but then as the day wore on, I had some halo frizz. A little hairspray took care of that. Overall, I think this was average. I have tried better mousses from other brands, but I do like this for lazy days.
I really like this mousse. I have used it for about a year. I notice that my hair has much less frizz with this product than with any other. I only touch my hair while applying. I then wait for it to dry before I scrunch again. This cuts down on the frizz that other reviewers are talking about. It has a nice light scent.
I have naturally curly hair and I will not use anything else when I'm going for a curly look. This does not leave my hair feeling crunchy or sticky. I usually start with the tresemme curl cream to smooth out my curls. I brush the mousse all over my hair and scrunch my ends up. On hot days, my hair type needs a little spray to tame the frizz. I love the smell, I love the hold. Love the price!
This product is OK. I have crazy thick long curly hair and for some reason the bottom half of it doesn't curl as much as the top. This mousse helps even it out a bit, and it is by far the best drug store mousse for curly hair out there. It doesn't leave it crunch if you don't use to much. Good stuff for the price.
I bought this product to help my wavy hair along and enhance what little curls I do have. Overall, it has a nice smell, but leaves my hair very crunchy, doesn't tame frizz, and doesn't enhance my wavy/curly hair. I would not buy this again.
I've been using this for six years. No other mousse can take its place. It's never been crunchy for me and holds all day. I have very thick and coarse hair so I do need to use an additional product for frizz, but I'm in love.
Took a point off packaging quality because sometimes the tip will break in a way that renders the whole can useless, and that's sad.
Been using this mousse for years and i love it! i have very very thick hair and unless i really lay on the hairspray, it doesn't get that crunchy. I love the smell, texture, and curly volume it gives me! Another great product, TRESemme!
This product sucked. it was too stiff and the problem was that i really like tresemme but with this product i really was disappointed.I wouldnt repurchase it agian.But overall the price was alright.
I mix this with Redken's Full Frame Mousse to achieve a nice look with my naturally curly hair. If used alone, It is WAY too stiff for my fine hair, however I find if I cut it I will get a better hold without a crispy feel. I have been purchasing this mousse for several years and although I usually get tired of the hard hold, always seem to go back to using it in one way or another. Not for everyone but worth trying if you have really curly hair - its not uber expensive.
I didn't have any problems with crunchiness, but my hair was still frizzy and shapeless after using this. Did not do absolutely anything for my hair.
