It took me several tries to figure out how it worked best for me. If I have frizzy spots, I put some of my leave in on those spots, and it fixed it. I know some people put gel/cream on those spots. When you go to apply it, if you rub the mousse into your hands so it is kind of like an oily consistency, that might help-it's what I do. It really is the only mousse I've gotten hold out of.
