Description

I love mousse! This one is epic because it gives so much volume with no sticky, tacky feeling so I can create the ultimate hair flip! It keeps the hair voluminous and bouncy and rinses clean leaving no residue behind.

Plump it up! I use this at the root before blow drying to get maximum lift and the best hair flips ever.

How to:
1. Apply a golf ball-sized amount of mousse on wet hair, evenly all over at the root.
2. Apply whatever is left on your hands to the rest of the hair.
3. Blow dry with a round brush or with your head flipped upside down for maximum volume and bounce.
Tip: Avoid applying this on partially dried hair. Best results come when applied to freshly washed hair.

Contains Zip-Up Technology™, our proprietary strengthening complex designed to "zip-up" split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and color fade.

This weighed down my hair so much. It ended up looking greasy and tangled right after I styled it. There are better options out there and for the price, this is a definite pass.

LOVE this product. It's hard to find clean products that actually work! I part my hair in sections and work this in circular motions onto the scalp. I have VERY sensitive skin and this does not affect it AT ALL! it's also very light and not greasy. A little goes a long way! I have suuuuper flat hair, so I was pleasantly surprised at how well this helped. I'm also very lazy with drying 😀 I usually just flip my hair over then dry it. Or I sleep on it in a messy bun for natural waves. Either way it helps.

I bought this mousse looking for a little more lift with my blowouts and unfortunately I ended up returning it. I added some volume and thickness to my hair for sure but I hated how it made my hair feel! So weighed down and almost like I couldnt get a brush through it! I was happy to wash it out at the end of the day. Might be ok for some people but wasn't great for my realtively oily, shoulder length hair!

This is the cheapest costing hair volumizing product I’ve used and it’s the best, and I’ve used A LOT of different brands. This stuff gives great volume so you don’t have to use one product for roots and another for mid-hair shaft down. It’s one product for less that does the best job.

Smelled horrible and the scent lingered on hands and hair. It had a tacky texture after drying but made hair look like there was a bunch of gel in it.

Smells good is the only good thing I can say. Left my hair feeling so sticky and heavy! I used exactly as directed on the bottle and have tried to use it so many different ways/amounts and I always regret it. Unfortunately I had to wash my hair again the next day to get this product out. Gave me zero volume!

Love the product- Happy it was on sale so I could try it. I have been losing alot of hair due to hormones - so I had to switch things up with my hair routine. This has worked great for me - helped with volume and dryness.

This stuff is very sticky. After blow drying my hair I looked like a dog that has his head out the car window on the freeway. I could hardly get my brush thru my hair. The next day my hair felt hard and stiff. I would not recommend if you have hair.

My hair was in knots after blow drying! This product did add volume initially, but left my hair feeling dry and tacky. Within a few hours my hair was limp and matted to the crown of my head. Probably not the product for you if you live in humid climates.

I liked that the scent was light and the mousse was easy to apply. Unfortunately, that’s not the main purpose of this product. This did not volumize my roots/hair. I tried smaller amounts of it to make sure it wasn’t just “user error” but still left my dark brown hair looking dull, and greasy.

It left my hair feeling chalky and sticky. I could not brush through my hair in the evening after returning home from work. I used a golf ball size as instructed on the label. I had used it other times before and always thought it was the other products leaving my hair chalky but I finally realized it was the moose today as it was the only product I used.

shoresofcal - 8 months ago, Verified purchaser
There are positives, it has a nice subtle scent that doesn't linger upon drying. The texture is also not too foamy and light, its a substancial foam that spreads well. That's where they end. This is the only mouse I've ever used where I'm really confused. It just does not work for my dense, thin, color-treated but healthy-ish hair. The first time I thought I used too much but the second I knew it was my first ever beauty return. My hair was hard to run my hands through and it stuck to itself like it was tangled. It also felt like a film sitting on my hair that I absolutely needed to get out. No volume, no softness, no body in my waves.

This is the WORST product I have ever had the displeasure of using. I never take the time to write bad reviews for anything but this product is THE EXCEPTION. My hair looks DISGUSTING. I just washed it and now I have no time to fix it before work. I look like I haven't washed my hair in months. It feels DISGUSTING on top of looking disgusting. I could not brush through it or get my fingers through my hair. This feels like glue. If this was the last styling product on earth I would shave my head.
