Default Shea Moisture Curl Mousse

Hey guys just bought the mousse from target. Can't wait to try it. I'm wondering has anyone used it? If so, did you like it and does it do what it's suppose to? Thanks

I bought it and used it twice. I really like it , don't think its HG for me but I think I need to play around with it a bit more before deciding. It did give me alot of volume, which I love, but not enough definition. Could be that I need to try another combination with it.

I don't like mousses because of their volumizing effect, but I do want to try it since it's by SM. I also am going to get one for my mother who is more wavy/fine. LLC-you bought it online? I just checked target.com and I don't see it.

Dsoto where did it create the volumizing effect? I would love more volume at the top. My hair is heavy so it tends to be flatter on top. (sorry if its a silly question lol)

dusa yes I bought it online but the first time I checked it was out of stock maybe two days after or so it was back in stock.

I just got it today. However I mistook it for a different package and went ahead and washed and styled my hair the regular way. Damn it! Now I'll have to wait until Friday when I wash it. It's just as well. I'll take it to mom first since she's the guinea pig. I'm impressed by target's super fast shipping by the way.

Yay I'm excited my curl mousse should be arriving today. Can't wait to try it out hopefully tonight after the gym. In case anyone is looking to purchase this online from target and lives in the SFL area standard shipping takes about 5 days since its coming from AZ.

I'm watching this thread with anticipation. I love SM products but this isn't available in my Target store yet. Before I spring for the extra shipping I'm curious to know how it works. Can anyone whose tried this compare it to Giovanni mousse? I'm hoping it has a touch more hold. I've not had good luck with mousse but I'm not ready to give up yet!

Question Still testing...

I finally tried the mousse. Overall it was ok. The consistency is more like a foam than the regular mousse. It felt a lot more watery. It has a small hint of coconut but mostly smelled like, in my opinion, playdoh. Not a bad smell but nothing like the smoothie. It didn't linger or stay in my hair so the smell was not a big issue. I don't think it has enough hold for my hair to be used on its own tho it might work for someone with fine strands. I noticed it took my hair longer to dry than when I use HETTCBM. It also got crunchy but I used a lot and I used it over my Biotera gel (I scrunched out most of it tho). It did give my hair a wet look all day but not in a bad "stringy wet look" way. Not the best hair day but far from a bad day. At the end of the day I still liked how my hair looked. Let's see how 2nd day hair turns out {crossing fingers}.

I am still experimenting with it. I would like to try it over a stronger gel since Biotera is also on the lighter side for my hair and after just cowashing. I was also trying out 2 other products that I recently purchased so I don't know if it was the mousse or something else. Will post back with my results.
Hope this help

Tried this out on my mother's hair yesterday afternoon. This might be my first thumbs down for Shea Moisture. The hold seemed next to nonexistent. My mother has medium-fine hair but it's extremely high density so she needs lots of product. Also her curl pattern (2b/2c) is looser so again, she needs more hold to maintain it. We tried it on very clean, damp hair. No other products. By the end of the day mom reported her hair felt dry and tangly and that's what I felt it felt like when her hair was fully dry too. So it did nothing, nada, to enhance her curl pattern or to hold it. However, part of it might be mom's fault because she won't sit still. So I get there and I see her hair piled atop her head in a turban, almost completely dry. That didn't work so we had to rewet it. Put the moose in, it felt very foamy and light, and then we did lots of scrunching, I went downstairs and when I went up again her hair was in a bun while she did her makeup. I'm groaning "Mom!" and explaining to her that her curl pattern is loose and delicate and you don't want to bend it out of shape. So when she released it from the bun we put more moose in but no luck. I think it's just the product itself though. I will try again with her hair and eventually my own since I know what I'm doing and I have a bit stronger curl pattern than her. Maybe my hair will do just fine with the light hold. Or maybe if I try layering it like LLC. . .
