This mousse made me believe in mousse (I hadn't used mousse in over a decade)! It's better than any gel or cream I've ever tried. There are some tricks to applying it, but once you learn what works for you, you get beautiful, soft hair that even holds up in the wind (it still blows everywhere, but then it just falls back into place). Another cool thing is that it makes your hair look SO shiny! You have got to try it! I have enough hair for 10 people, and it works for me!
