I really like it too, I'm not sure if it gives me enough hold but I do really like it

I love Beyond the Zone Tame Your Curls Mousse. You should try it, it honestly gives me better hold than any gel I've tried. I noticed where you said you weren't sure the Biotera Gel gave you enough hold, I feel the same way, although I like it. I never thought mousse would work for me, I thought it was too light for my thick thick hair. Also, this mousse isn't crunchy or gummy in your hair. Just a thought...

Mousse actually gives you hold? I liked it because it was light, which was good for my fine hair, but I never thought that mousse could give more hold than a gel...next time I'm at Sally's I'm definitely picking some up

I was totally SHOCKED that it gave me hold, even in the wind! I always associated mousse with limp, crunchy hair. For some reason this one works, and the smell is pleasant. It also gives shine.

Oh yeah, my hair is fine too, it doesn't look fine because there is so much of it, but it is. I didn't even know it was fine until a hair-dresser told me.

I just put Biotera Leave-In Conditioner in my hair at night after washing it. Then in the morning, I re-wet my hair with a spray bottle (not too much water, just enough) and put the mousse in. If there are any frizzy spots, I put some more leave-in in that area. Sometimes I put the gel or creme on my ends if they are being stubborn, but really the mousse works well on its own. I can get 2nd day hair with this mousse, which I've never gotten before. I really am shocked that I can use mousse, my hair seems to like it, and I don't have to use a ton of it, even though I have a ton of hair.

Yes it is. The cone it contains is prefaced with PPG or PEG, so they are water soluble and CG. I am all the way CG. The Tame Your Curls is the only one of their mousses that is CG as far as I know, so make sure you get that one. Regular cones build up BAD in my hair, even the a-cone, so everything I use is CG.

If I let myself, I could spend tons of money in Sally's- it's addicting!

The GVP Conditioning Balm really is amazing. I've never used anything else like it. I like it better than Deva One Condition.

I'm also liking Cure Care Conditioner, particularly for co-wash and as a leave-in.

I love Biotera Curl Cream!

So i tried the mousse today. Its not bad. Has potential. I do have some frizz which I am not pleased with but not giving up on it just yet. I do think the scent is a wee bit strong but I am not sure if its that or the condish. Lol! Will try again tomorrow

The eyeliner was a failure. Smeared bad
