My favourite volumising mousse, for sure! Gives loads of volume, doesn't leave your hair sticky or crunchy, and really lasts. As an added bonus, if you're in the UK it's regularly on offer in Superdrug - and it's so cheap anyway! Will repurchase time & time again :D
Finally, a non-crunchy mousse that actually gives some volume! It's not quite an HG product for me (yet), but it's darn good. Just about me, I have very fine, straight, chin-length virgin hair that I blow dry most days and then style with a curling iron to "pretend" I have some volume/shape. I've tried other hair mousse products that tout volume, but they either leave my hair feeling stiff like a helmet, or they make my hair feel dry and brittle. This product does neither! The volume that it provides is NOT like a Pantene commercial, but I definitely notice a difference in how my hair looks and feels-- it just seems more voluminous, and doesn't just lay flat against my head. It also seems to bring out a bit more definition in the layers of my haircut, which is something I'm not usually great at doing (I'm missing the female hair styling gene). Also, unlike some products, the volume lasts! My hair still looks pretty decent the next morning, which is super for Saturday mornings if I need to run an errand before showering (I wash my hair daily with my shower). It doesn't leave behind any residue or buildup, either. I got this at Ulta for about $5, which is also a terrific bargain. Will definitely repurchase!
A really nice mousse- no crunchiness at all and the volumen held up all day.
It is definitely one of the better drugstore mousse products. Leaves my hair soft (some crunch depending on how much applied or dried, but that scrunches out) and full. But it doesn't give as much lift in the crown as my Got2be Vol. Volume mousse (which is still the best drugstore mousse I have found). The JF mousse also doesn't do much to help my curls. I think this would be great for roundbrushing or using curlers.
I am happy with this, its not crunchy or heavy...I still think I just might prefer my Captivating Curls mousse from Sunsilk but this is still an awesome product. My hair has a tendency to get sick of products and act up if I don't vary their usage so this will have a spot in my routine! EDIT...I like this mousse best as it hold the curl when I blow dry.
I bought this based on the good reviews here, and I'm very happy with it! I have a lot of hair products on my bathroom sink, and I reach for this one every morning!
It gives my fine thin hair some fluffiness, and makes it easier to style.
Yes-no crunchiness, it pretty much feels like there's nothing in your hair. Yay!
Listen up, thin/fine-haired ladies -- there's a new mousse in town and it's a winner. I used this mousse today for the first time and I was extremely pleased with the results. It gave me wonderfully full, soft volume without ANY stickiness or crunchiness whatsoever. It smells subtle & fresh and I really like the packaging as well (the can is shorter and bigger vs. really tall and skinny. Easier to fit in small bathroom spaces, etc.). I also like the way it made my bobbed straight, thin hair "fall" -- I didn't even need to follow up with hairspray; I just ran my fingers through it and it looks great! I paid $6.99 at Rite-Aid for it so it's not the cheapest drugstore mousse you'll find, but it is worth it in my opinion.
this mousse is awesome,gives me beautiful volume,shine,no crunchiness,it has panthenol and no alcohol.the perfect product for my dry,wavy hair
This product has been reformulated and repackaged but is still one of the best volumising products in the business! Compared to other d/s products it is comparably pricey (£6.00) but we are talking 'John Frieda' and the results are far superior than alot of h/e lines available only through salons (IMO). Ladies, if like me you have fine, straight hair YOU NEED THIS MOUSSE! The product itself has a creamy, lightweight consistency with a gentle scent, which is easily distributed through the hair. It also contains 'Thermo Protection' - an added bonus. It always leaves my hair feeling beautifully conditioned not crispy and stiff like a lot of 'volumising' mousses out there. It is also non-drying and alot of mousses do dry the hair with the chronic amount of alcohol in them. The results with JF are impressive - lift and body which actually stay the day, while leaving the hair luxuriously shiney, glossy and full - I'm sounding like an advert but honestly it does exactly what it says on the can - try it! And for extra "OOMPH" for a special occasion use it in conjunction with Luxurious Volume Thickening Blow Dry Lotion (see separate review).
