Love this product! I put it through my hair without combing it then sleep on my hair and the next morning it looks great! I would deff buy this again. I have also used it before blowing out my hair, but would prefer my hair wavy.
I am really impressed with this product. I usually use Bumble Bumble thickening spray to get a little boost but I prefer the John Frieda mousse. It is not dry or sticky at all and it gives my hair body that lasts all day. My hair is baby fine and highlighted...
I tried this mousse and I have to say that it is one of the better mousses out there. I liked the texture, it was more on the creamy side and has a pleasant scent. It is also alcohol-free and slightly conditioning, which is a plus. It did not leave my hair crunchy or sticky. However, I found that it did not define my curls the way Clairol condition 3-in 1 moisturizing mousse does (I cannot purchase that anymore:/ , but I have a can left that I ordered from ebay some years ago by sheer luck). JF's Luxurious Volume mousse is, in my experience, better than the curling mousse because it did not leave build-up. It did provide adequate volume though, but I am in search for a close copy of clairol condition 3-in-1, still. Overall, I give this product 4.5 lippies, because to me, this is one of the better JF products that actually does what it claims. I will not repurchase, the search for mousse continues...UPDATE: I will use this mousse for the time being, as it is actually quite good in comparison to other mousses that I've tried thus far. **ANOTHER UPDATE**: After using this mousse more, I have to say that it is really great!! now give this product 5 lippies:) Like other mua reviewers mentioned, this stuff really makes hair soft and provides good volume; not the crunchy, droopy kind. Great stuff! EDIT: I found that this made my strands "fuzzy" after continuous use. I liked Aussie Catch the Wave Mousse better.
I have a cabinet full of hair products, all purchased in the hope that one of them would miraculously transform my fine, limp hair into a shamoo commercial...I've spent a small fortune over the years on high-end brands yet lately this is the one I keep reaching for. Like the other reviewers said, it's not crunchy, stiff, or sticky, and it really does make my hair look like it has some body, It's a winner.
I always expect mousses to be sticky when I spray them into my hands- so I was so pleasantly surprised that this was silky-satiny-soft and not sticky at all- I squirted out a palmful and raked it through my hair (after having squirted the Root Lifter on first) and blow-dried. My hair felt a little dry at first, but later it began to feel like silk and very soft. The volume is definite- my hair FEELS thicker (I already have thick hair) and looks very luxuriously voluminous- this might just be enough to get me to blow-dry my hair, at least 1x a week!
I already have really thick hair, but sometimes the weight causes it to go flat which is why I use volumizing products. This is the best voumizing product I have tried by far, (the most recent being sunsilk). It really gives my hair lift, and paired with the matching hairspray their was a huge difference in my hair that lasted throughout the night without any hardness, stiffness or stickiness.
This thickening mousse really does make my hair thicker. I am growing out my hair and some days it goes limp especially during humid weather, but this mousse makes me feel like I have somebody else's hair because my hair is never this thick with this much volume. I love the root lifter and the hair spray too. Very comparable to high end beauty shop products.
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.
