I was traveling and ran out of my Moroccan Oil Styling Creme which is wonderful but expensive. Both products are silicone based. In this case, the Corrective Styling Mousse softens my frizzy-prone curls and defines them nicely. It isn't the strongest hold but it makes my hair soft and the price is certainly right.
If I squish out the water after showering, lightly towel dry keeping some water in the hair, and apply the mousse, all I do is turn my head upside down, gather the hair into a band at the top of my hair (like Pebbles from the Flintstones) and let it dry that way for ten minutes. This adds some lift to the crown without any blow-drying. After ten minutes, I take the hair band off and let it dry naturally. Perhaps this would be a good time to spray something that would hold the curl. Time shall tell. Either way, a good product at a reasonable price.

I bought this product to try as I have quite wavy hair and I wanted to enhance that. This product worked really well the first couple of times I used it but after about a week of use it didn't do anything to help enhance my waves and left my hair feeling quite dry. Its a shame really because I really wanted to like this product. I don't feel that is it too expensive and the packaging is quite nice and it smells quite nice and I have had quite good results from John Frieda products in the past but this product really disappointed me.

The mousse itīs quite nice but I would like it to give more crunch to my hair, somehow I donīt find it so long lasting on my curls thatīs why I wonīt repurchase it again.

This mousse does not really enhance my wave-curls. It also gives me a wet look if I use too much, which I hate. If I use less, I don't get the hold or definition. Crunch doesn't actually bother me as it can always be scrunched out, but in any case this isn't very crunchy. I would not buy this product again as it does not deliver what I want, and for a supermarket product it is kind of pricy too.

My hair is naturally fairly wavy, and I decided to use this mousse to kind of amp that up. And boy, did it do it's job! It seriously gave me RINGLETS. Honest to God, it turned my mildly wavy hair into almost perfect inch-thick curls.
The only negative point? It didn't give me any shine or make my hair feel any softer. But I no longer feel the need to use my curling iron at all. Definitely recommended.

I have curly hair that loves to frizz. This mousse does a pretty good job of controlling the frizz. This mousse doesn't leave my hair feeling crunchy at all. I'd buy this mousse again, definitely. I can't use this mousse alone though. I'd suggest either doing the entire Frieda line or finding another cream/spray to use in addition to the mousse.

I've been using this brand for years, and I've been pretty happy with it.
It's sticky when you put it on, but that's expected of a mousse. Be careful not to put too much or concentrate excessively on a certain area, or that may end up crunchy. Scrunching fixes this problem, though. Also, make sure to spread it EVENLY.
Right now, I'm on the loook-out for a new product (not necessarily a mousse) that will enhance my curls and keep them frizz-free. I find that this product inconsistent at times. One day, my hair is GORGEOUS and other times, it's not so great. I don't know whether to attribute it to this product or some other area of my hair-care routine.
In any case, it does cause a lot of build-up, so I'm looking for something lighter.
Other than that, it is a decent product worth a try.

I love this mousse because it tames the frizz and leaves your hair very soft and natural (no crunchiness). The downside is that it doesn't really hold curls too well, nor does it define waves. I find that after an hour or so, my hair is halfway back to being straight. I guess there has to be a compromise between soft/natural and hold. Also, it does create a lot of scalp buildup somehow. I'm currently looking for a better mousse.

It is just a mousse. Not even a really good mousse. Someone compared this to Graham Webb's Magnitude Mousse...this doesn't even come close! It did not do anything special or feel particularly nice. I think the Finesse Curl Defining mousse is better. And GW Magnitude Mousse is one of the better mousse products I have used. It is up there with Joico's, Kenra's and PM's mousse products.

I had gotten a perm a little less than a year ago. The damage caused my naturally very straight and slick hair to become very damaged and prone to frizziness. But this mousse saved it :) I had tried more expensive mousses prior to this one but those left little white flakes in my hair--yuck! but this one help keep some bounce to my dying curls and frizz-free!

I really ♥like♥ this mousse.
It's a great balance between hold, softness and conditioning.
I would compare this to Graham Webb Magnitude Mousse.
I have very frizzy, fine and dry hair by the way almost waistlength.

I tried this some time ago and did not like it then. Bought it again yesterday to see if it would still do nothing for my naturally curly prone to frizz hair and it still does nothing. I am returning it today.

I have medium-sized corkscrew curls, extremely thick hair and not very much patience. I need a fool-proof product for my curls, that doesn't require me to "separate", "twirl" or do anything, really - just apply and go about my day. While I do have products which help me get my hair presentable for the day, what was missing in my bathroom cabinet was a product which would "wake up" my curls before going out in the evening or after a few hours of sleep (after which my hair looks like a hornet's nest had been attached to the side of my head). Using curl cream in a situation like this does not help - my hair ends up looking greasy, feeling sticky and heavy. This mousse solved the problem for me. When my curls show the kind of day I've been having, I apply a little water to dampen, a dollop of hair cream and then quite a bit of mousse (I have quite a bit of hair) and that's all I need to get my curls "spring fresh". Thank goodness for this stuff.

I don't know if there's more than one, but the one I got is a "curl reviver." I have naturally slightly wavy (not curly) hair, and this keeps it wavy and fluffy throughout the day as opposed to limp and straight (which it usually degrades to after several hours on a humid day). It doesn't do anything magical, but it makes my hair look decent and it's easy to use. Not sure if I'd buy it again though.

I picked up a travel-sized can of this on a whim one night, not really expecting anything from it considering the absolute lack of efficiency of the Frizz-Ease Serum. Well, I worked this into my hair after a shower a couple of days ago and I'm thrilled. My hair is smooth, shiny, and although not as soft as with no product I doubt anyone but me would know the difference. It also seems to have some oil-absorbing capacities as my hair normally gets greasy very quickly and that hasn't been a problem while using this product. I did take off one lipstick because it didn't enhance my (very slight) natural slight curl like it was supposed to; it actually flattened it, but it also de-frizzed it so I'm happy! (For reference, I have color-treated, thick but fine, just-below-shoulder-length wavy hair; I work the product into damp hair an dlet it air dry.) I'll definitely be getting a full-size container of this stuff!

I am in conflict. First, in order to have your curls stay nice, one must have to go for over the counter. For some reason, professional grades don't cut it. Second, I love Pantene's mousee because it has the "crunch" that I know some reviewers do not like but I think its nice. Unfortunately, it has alcohol. Therefore, this is my best mousse product because it tames 90% of my frizz. Here's a great tip. After I shower, I apply the usual golf ball size of mousse into my hair. After it absorbs, I can readily see where the "frizz" locations are. ***I wet my hands and I rub through my hair again mostly focusing on the frizz sections*** If my hair is really fussy, I add a little bit more product and repeat with re-wetting my hair with water. I hope this helps in your frizziest days :)

My hair is a blend of semi-wavy to very curly. This is a fairly recent development since I've had mostly straight hair practically all my life. I'd heard that hair changed but I didn't believe it would quite so dramatic. Because of this recent change, I had no idea how to handle my hair anymore. As it turned wavier and then curly I started using a flat iron. However, any moisture would curl my hair right back up, especially at the root. Since I didn't have the time to flatiron every single morning I decided to embrace the curly.
I can't believe how many products I've gone through in the past couple of months. It seems like I've plowed through the entire Redken line with varying results. I was loathe to try anything with too much old since I hate the hard wet look most of those products seem to leave. Finally, a friend came to visit and had the most gorgeous and natural ringlets I'd seen. She recommended a mousse that she used and said that all she did was use the mousse when her hair was sopping wet (no towels!) and then let it air dry or blew it dry with a diffuser. Well, I didn't find the mousse she used at my beauty supply shop but I saw this one which was considerably less money. I figured, what the heck?
I wash my hair every day (usually with a sulfate free poo, but then alternate to a gentle sulfate shampoo once every 2 weeks to get rid of buildup). I don't use a conditioner in the shower. Instead I spray on a leave-in after squeezing out some water. Then I use a smaller-than-golfball-sized squeeze of the mousse and run it through my hair. It leaves me with frizz-free ringlets. Sometimes I use a teeny bit of creme at the ends for definition, but that's it. I don't brush my hair at all, and only use a wide tooth comb when it's wet.
My hair is thick, a bit past shoulder lengh, and normal texture. This product gives me wonderful shiny ringlet filled hair with zero fuss. It's about 6 dollars in most stores and totally worth it.
By the way, the product my friend recommended was L'anza Urban Elements Bodifying Foam. This does the same job for a few dollars less. Highly recommended.

Kudos to this mousse for no crispiness, but it did absolutely nothing for definition. It left my wavy/curly hair frizzy and all over the place. I've tried varying the amount of product, but nothing works. It was twice as expensive as my HG Garnier Curl Construct mousse, not sure why I felt the need to try something new. Back to Garnier I go...

Fantabulous product! Love it Love it Love it. Defined my long wavy curls. Wasn't sticky, heavy or left that shiny/plastic/wet look. All in all, an excellent product. Have already repurchased it. Now all I have to do is wait to get my hair back so I can use this stuff again! Another possible HG I think.

I was looking for a fragrance-free hair mousse, and the salesgirl gave me this after smelling brand after brand of mousse herself, it's still not fragrance-free, but the scent is minimal and is alcohol-free, I would re-purchase for that reason. This is a soft-hold mousse but works well for a hair-setting and doesn't leave residue.
