BEST CURLY HAIR PRODUCT YET

Prior to using this mousse, I was using this other brand of mousse which made my hair often poofy and not the way I wanted it to work and that product was also pretty expensive. But this mousse kept my curls with still keeping the length and it looks like beach waves and its so perfect. The price and quality is amazing I would so buy this again.

The curl talk line works great for my hair, and this is no exception. The scent is lovely and it holds my hair lightly and controls frizz all day long. I will mention that you should make sure to shake the can for at least 30 seconds before using. Thank you so much for bringing this amazing product into the world for such a reasonable price!

This mousse definitely smells like a bad odor. I also found it too sticky, heavy, and didn’t like the residue left in my hair.

My hair is crispy and sticky, looks and feels like some cheap 90s gel look. They say it’s soft and touchable. It feels like hard cotton candy. I don’t see anyone touching this without their hand sticking to it like Spider-Man sticks to the side of a building. Gross. Gross. Gross. Don’t buy this garbage.

This does not work better than some of the lower priced ones. It also does not offer much hold.

I don’t use much products in my hair since a lot of it does the opposite of what it should do. So I thought I try this product. My hair smells burnt and it’s completely dry and my curls are fried 💔 I would not recommend this product to anyone! I wish I could get a refund and now I’m on another hair journey to get my curls healthy again!!!

Best mousse for my curls!

Klynch - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
I’ve tried all different types of mousse and gels for my curls from expensive to cheap and I have to say this is the best one for my curls that I’ve found! The hold is perfect and my curls can last 3 days using my silk bonnet at night. Gives lots of volume and smells so good. Hands down the best mousse out there at a great price too! The picture is day 2 of using the mousse. I wash and condition my hair, wrap in a microfiber towel for a few minutes and then add the mousse to my damp hair and diffuse.

This product is so good! Sometimes I like reaching for this when I want extra hold in my curls and it also smells good. The only issue is the packaging because the part that has the foam come out falls out all the time. Other than that it’s really good
