Review of Dove Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse by 1017
UPDATE 2/24/13: This is a soft hold mousse & more of a curl defining mousse than any hold. If I ever want an easy breezy day, this would be nice, it leaves my hair soft and not dry or crunchy. It doesn't leave that straw like feeling I get after using a mousse either, that is nice. So if you want something for soft curl encouragement try this. If you want "hold" stick with Suave Max Hold or Joiwhip.
ORIGINAL POST: I use mousse on my fine wavy hair, after I have shampooed/conditioned my hair, scrunched out the excess water, applied AG Recoil Curl Activator, flipped my head (with still pretty damp hair) over and combed through with a wide tooth comb. I put a small dollop of mousse in my hands to scrunch my hair up. Then I flip my head back up & go lay down on my bed with my head hanging over, hair falling into a bowl diffuser. I got complimented the first day using the Dove. I had major volume at first, but it did drop...but I was still left with full curls. Nice curl clumping (no stringy curls...hate stringy curls), nice shine, soft, but not too fly away hair.
