I pincurl my hair regularly and have used Tresemme 24-Hour Body Mousse for that purpose for months. I heard the buzz about Motions and gave it a try.
First, I really like the foaming pump action. I don't know what kind of propellants are in aerosol mousse cans, but this has got to be more environmentally friendly because it's a simple mechanical process like a hand soap foamer. I liked that I can pump out a little bit onto my fingertips and work it into my hair instead of having to dab away at an expanding blob the size of an egg or a tennis ball. I got kind of worried that I'd misjudged the total amount and put too much in my hair, but that turned out not to be the case. It doesn't feel sticky on my hands when it dries, and it has a mild sweet generic-hair-product scent I don't mind. (Goes away when dry.)
I notice the ingredients list way more silicones than the Tresemme mousse does. I'm not anti-silicone but this should have prepared me for the problem I had when I first used it. My habit is to roll my pincurls dry and then spray them with water, so I blowdried my hair till almost completely dry before trying to curl it. My hair was so silky and slippery I absolutely could not get it into pincurls! I struggled with about 4 curls for as long as it usually takes me to do my entire head, then gave up, and spritzed the individual sections with water and put them in curls. That worked fine. I have to say that my hair was not only coney-silky and shiny, it was really bouncy and full. I may start wearing my hair straight more often if it's going to be that pretty with this mousse.
After drying, my curls are INSANELY shiny and soft. I never thought there was a problem with how Tresemme left my curls but as far as texture and bounciness goes, Motions beats it hands down. Staying power is good, some drooping of second-day curls (after re-rolling overnight) that concerns me a little but it may only be an issue of tweaking the moisture levels. I will say that when I roll it back up even for a short time it really gets very curly again, but I'm not sure about the lifespan of those curls yet.
I'm not too concerned about the alcohol content because I henna my hair and it's pretty well armored against product damage, but I'll keep an eye on it.

I hate to be the voice of dissent, as I had very high hopes for this product. For reference, I have straight, fine, thin, blonde hair. I was hoping to find a good, inexpensive volumizer and, based on the reviews, decided to take a chance on this one. Well, I used it 3 times and won't be using it again -- I just can't make it work for my hair type. I tried using less, using more, all to no avail. It leaves my hair TOO controlled and stiff...like I used hairspray to style my hair. My hair is already so fine -- it needs lift AND movement to look its best. Also, it made my dark blonde roots look darker (yuck.). So, as a volumizer, I was not sold. However, ladies with thick and/or unruly hair would probably have great success with it. It definitely adds hold and definition to your style! It's cheap ($4.99 at Walgreens), so if your hair is a different texture and you are on the prowl for a new styling product, it's worth a shot.

Fine wavy here who also read about this in Allure. Since it can be drying after prolonged daily use, I only use it these days around my crown to give me a little extra lift. But it is so light and airy, yet does so much to boost your hair (with out turning it into a big frizz poof). It so darn cheap, it can not hurt to try it. I want to experiment, but I bet if you put some Morroccanoil on your hair followed by this it would be nice hair and take care of the drying problem. I would have given it a 5, but gave it a 4 because the prolonged use leading to being a bit dry concerns me. But not enough to stop using this ;)

Awesome product. I have fine, thin, straight hair that doesn't hold a curl. I had to find this product at an ethnic hair store, and it was only $4.99. This stuff holds my hair beautifully for all types of wet sets: foam rollers, curlformers and pin curls. It doesn't crust, and the curls last until I wash my hair again. I never use hairspray on the curls, which for me is unheard of. It does contain alcohol, so I definitely don't use this product daily, only when I have the time to set my hair. I used to use Lottabody setting lotion, but this one is a million times better. If you're into wet sets or vintage hairstyling, this product is a must!
UPDATE: I just purchased the "extra hold" version from Sally's. It is OUTSTANDING! My curls come out beautiful and they last for days. I thought the extra hold might leave curls a bit stiffer and crunchy, but it doesn't.

I bought this after reading about it in a magazine. It is in the ethnic hair section of the store. I have straight (though hormonal) shoulder length hair. It gets fly away and/or frizzy, poufy, depending on the weather. This stuff gives me heft, volume, quick blow drying, smoothing and style memory without the crunch. It is great for all hair types. The first day my husband said my hair looked nice. So did others after that. I do not like most hair products like mousse, gels, etc. I was basically only using hair spray after I styled. This stuff made me a believer in the RIGHT products. And it's only around $4.00!

Like everyone else here at MUA, I had read raves about Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion in Allure, and figured I'd give it a try. I have shoulder length, medium-thick curly-to-wavy hair that often falls flat and loses curl definition in spots.
I'm satisfied to write that Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion solves both the falling flat and loss of curl definition problems! I simply comb this through wet hair after I get out of the shower, let my hair dry about 20 minutes or so on its own, then finish drying with a diffuser. I get big, luscious, well-defined curls that last and last.
If I have one quibble with Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion, it is that it seems to take my hair awhile to dry when I use it. Also, the scent, while not disgusting, is a little old-ladyish. However, it disappears once your hair is dry, and is worlds better than other setting lotions I've used.

I also bought this product after reading about it in allure. While it is suggested for use with fine hair, I actually have coarse wavy thick hair and it still works wonders. It definitely gives body and volume to blow dryer styled hair. It helps facilitate the styling process (i don't have to work the brush as much) and it keeps the style over a few days. I can't wash my hair everyday since it's so dry, so I've gone up to 3-4 days without washing with this product. Not once did my hair appear oily or flat. I've also used this as product when I let my waves air dry naturally. Amazingly, very little frizz and lots of shine were the result! I am very impressed. It didn't define my curls or make them bouncier, though (like other products have). Also, I won't use more than 3-4 pumps for below shoulder length hair. If so, I find it makes the hair a bit stiff. Definitely rebuying.

I also tried this after reading about it in Allure. I have long, fine, frizzy hair with oily roots and dry ends...so it takes A LOT of work for me to have a good hair day. While I've only had this product for a few days now, I have had a good hair day every single time I use it. My hair is bouncy, shiny, and volumized. So many volumizing products leave me with some volume and major frizz, but not this. This will definitely become a part of my everyday routine.

My hair has a mind of its own. Some days it nicely wavey, other days it just a mop. Based on a note from Allure Magazine, I too tried this and fell in instant lust.
I put 7 pumps into my hands and run it through my shoulder length hair. I then comb it back and it creates lovely loose curls. Never sticky nor stiff, just nice control.
I have fine hair that tends to be greasy and regardless how much I used (again, I use 7-8 pumps and scrunch through wet hair). I then comb it back, wait abuot 45 min to scrunch, and that's all I do.

I read about this product in Allure's best of 2010 issue. They suggested it as a volumnizer for fine hair. I love the light texture of this foam. I used two squirts on damp hair and blow dried as normal, mostly upside down. Amazing volume and only $4. I evens keeps it fluffy on day 2 which is unusual on my fine limp hair. Great results for a great price. I got mine at Target but it is also sold at Walgreen's among other places.
