Default Beyond the Zone Noodle Head Mousse? Did I use mine wrong?

Ha! So I just bought this mousse mentioned up there, because I've heard great things and needed something less drying, with more hold. Off to Sally's I went.

It seemed a little lighter, so I MAY have put on a little too much. Like...two ping pong ball's worth, maybe a little more. I scrunched out some crunch, but my hair was a little sticky, and kinda stiff. Like, in THEORY it would have looked nice...I had some serious definition and curl going on. But they kind of stuck out in different wavy directions and were quite stiff and didn't look quite right.

Did I use it a little too much, or something else? Or is this mousse maybe not for me?

This mousse is my HG. When I first got it, I put WAY WAY too much it and hated it. Then I realized that I only needed a little. I put a puff of mousse on my hand, and then I rub my hands together until it turns into an "oil-like" consistency and then put it in my hair (scrunching as soon as I put it in). I have extremely thick hair and use about 2 or 3 small puffs. If it ends up not being enough, I can just add more. I wash my hair at night and let it air dry and dampen it in the morning with a water bottle before putting the mousse in (putting mousse in soaking wet hair has NEVER worked for me). My hair is soft and holds all day. It just takes a while to figure out how to use it. It took me about a week and a half, but it was worth it. It keeps my hair soft, and I love that. If I have any frizzy places left, I just put a dab of my leave-in on the spots, and it takes care of it.

Thank you so much, that makes so much sense! Incidentally, I was appalled with my results, washed it out, and tried once more--bam! Instant difference. Soft, defined curls all over the place, that stayed all day long. I got many compliments! I'm gonna keep experimenting with this and see if it becomes my HG! A little pricier than Target/Walmart brands, but worth it if I can stop buying every little product to try it out.

Watch for sales on the mousse, I think I got mine for 3 or 4 dollars, but sometimes they have a 2 for 1 sale.
