Very rarely does a product completely DESTROY healthy hair in one use. This was a disaster product for me.
In one use, overnight, it took my glossy, healthy, shiny hair and completely fried it. It looked dry, crunchy and completely unmanageable. It took a week and a half of deep conditioning to get it back to normal.
I used exactly as directed-- I washed and conditioned as normal and put it in damp hair, combed it through. The next morning I curled my hair.
I'm a reporter and the morning after I used this I actually got 2 viewer emails asking what happened to my hair. Clearly, I wasn't the only one who noticed.
Awful, awful, awful.
I bought this product mostly as a heat protectant. I loved the way the mousse pumped out onto my hands, very smooth. Ive treid it for two days already, and will continue to use it. But as of now, this is not a product I would buy again. After using it, the ends of my hair were left extremely dry and damaged. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
I would prefer to never be without this mousse again. It says it protects against heat. I hope that is true as it is one of the reasons that I love it. It gives volume too- not a ton, but it helps. I would recommend this over any other mousse I have tried.
Big poufy hair (I have an inverted, layered bob, fine, color treated hair), cheap price, easy to find, so what's not to like? Only the fact that my hair feels sticky w/ it in (after blow-drying), but I can partially counteract this w/ Frederic Fekkai's Brilliant Glossing Cream.
So why did I say "no" to re-purchase? Because I get the exact same results w/out the sticky feeling from John Frieda Luxurious Volumizing Mousse. However, for me, the JF is getting harder and harder to find so, I will probably re-purchase, but only if my JF is no longer an option.
This is great. It doesn't leave your hair sticky, has great hold and natural look. Really like to use this when I am doing a look that I know needs to last all day long. Sometimes my hair will hold even through the night. Doesn't leave my hair greasy like a lot of other mousse! Great.
I tried this mousse because of all the positive reviews here and I have to say, it really works, and at the right price. You might get Peggy Bundy/pageant hair at first, so this isn't such a great choice for people who want their hair to look and feel natural. You CAN feel the product on your hair. Would be great for a photo shoot, special event or any sort of updo situation. Amazing for '60s looks, no backcombing required! It's also great for everyday if you give it time to relax after styling. Give it a good brush-out. Go ahead and sleep on it. It'll still be zhooshy the next day, and your curls will HOLD. Super sexy.
Three months ago I finished chemo. I have very little hair left and have been searching for anything that would create volume and control in my dandelion hair. This actually works! I just applied a small amount of the mouse on my roots, 1/4 of an egg, then another small amount on the rest of my hair.
I blow dried it and my hair is actually full of volume. I have not styled it yet but this give me such volume I needed to share this. It says it has polymers in it so the heat helps it to produce more volume than others. It I use too much it does make my hair sticky however after having no hair this is great!
I hope I can find some other things that work
I have been looking for a mousse for my fine curly short hair for like months. I tried two other brands, and they were sticky and gross and made me feel like I was going to break my hair if I were to brush my hair after putting them on my hair. I use a small eggs worth of this mousse and I apply it to 50% dry hair. I then use a diffuser and a large paddle brush to blow dry my hair. My hair is wavy when I use a blow dyer, but it is really curly if I let it dry naturally, at least when it's short. I love this mousse. I wasn't expecting it to work, but my curls look clean and polished and not at all crunchy. If I let my hair dry naturally, my curls don't look polished, they just look sort of crazy. This isn't a bad thing, but sometimes I want to feel like my hair is like in control or whatever. What I really like about this mousse is that I can brush my hair after using it, and it doesn't make my hair feel crunchy or stiff. I don't feel like I will break my hair if I want to style my hair after it is dry. This is really important, because I don't wash my hair everyday. I try NOT to wash it, because our hair is extremely delicate when it's wet, so I hope the limited exposure to water will help it grow longer without breaking. Anyway, I like this mousse, a little goes a long way, and it makes my hair feel thick, polished and beautiful when I want to use a blowdryer. I'm not sure if it actually protects the hair from heat, but my hair dryer isn't hot enough to cause any REAL damage to my hair, as I use a diffuser and I keep the blowdryer at least 5 inches from my hair when I do use it on my curls. I love this mousse and I'm so happy that I found it :)
This mousse actually does a fab job at giving volume! Its gives a 'poofy' look though for a few hours and then later turns into a more beautiful fuller look. Best for those who want to scrunch/curl hair. Love this stuff alot. I just apply it and then blowdry hair upside down. I dont think it would work without heat though.The smell is pleseant too, just like all other tresemme products. Would I repurchase? Yes. One of the best cheap volume products out there! Give this a try, you wont regret!
Let me know if this review was helpful or not and check out my review on other mousses. :)
I bought this mousse at Wal-Mart for about $5. I was looking for a hair mousse that would give me volume when I scrunch my hair. I really like using this mousse. I usually blow dry my hair when I scrunch it. I am almost out. I think I will buy it again. The price is good, the packaging is cute and functional, and it gives me great volume. :) Only down side to it is the crunchy stiffness I get if I use too much.
Edit: I recently tried the Suave volume mousse hoping that I would get the same great volume for a lower price. I was disappointed. I will definitely come back to this mousse in the future. :)
