My stylist says that mousse can be very drying. Not just the ingredients, but the propellant, too.

Use the links mhen provided for you. Hair properties are what matters for ingredients/products that your hair should prefer. Once you determine your hair properties look for folks with hair like yours and see what they use (in signatures.) It's the best place to start.

My hair is fine/low porosity. I use really rich products and don't need to DT. My hair loves protein. I do one moisturizing PT a week and use a lot of protein in my products. Protein really helps me with frizz.
Okay so I read a lot about hair properties and I think I've figured out where my hair stands in those categories. For porosity, I think I'm medium. I did the slip and slide test and some of my strands feel pretty smooth and others are rough in a few spots while running my fingers up and down. For density, I'd say medium density. Width is also medium and my hair length is long, by my waist. I shower with a shampoo and conditioner, usually herbal essence. Then when I get out the shower I put in AG fast food leave in into wet hair. I then I squeeze out the excess water and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I rake in curl keeper. I section my hair into 4 sections and evenly distribute it through my hair. Once I'm done with that step I will either put gel or mousse onto my hair and air dry or diffuse. My hair will look frizz free at first but then throughout the day it'll start frizzing, especially that one section. I've tried everything, every combination. Recently I've been testing a lot of products like curl keeper, AG beach bomb, John Frieda mousse which I don't like at all, AG fast good, curl junkie leave in. Before I found out about naturally curly I would just used an oil and mousse, alcohol free with everything that I bought. Thank you for your feedback. I have a lot to learn!
