OK, so who recommended the 3 in 1 Clairol mousse??

Yesterday it was a buck and fifty nine in change at Walgreens. So, I thought "What the heck". bought it. Today my hair is GREAT. And, it is hot and humid here. I hope this product is CG; I think it is. And, I hope my hair holds up all day! But so far, its great, my hair is loopy and shiny. Thanks, Curlfriends!
I've been using the same mousse for about two weeks. Can we say amazing? No frizz (even through a heat wave) and nice curls. Best stuff I've used and the price is even better!
Type:3A/3B
Texture:Medium
Porosity:low
Elasticity:Normal
Still on a hunt for good cleanser/conditioner




a little of this and a little of that

Mmmm I forgot I have a big stash of clairol 3-in-1 in my cupboard. It's not CG but it is great for this hot humid weather. I might try it with some aloe Eco.
The mousse is CG I think.

Here are the ingredients:

Water, Hydrofluorocarbon 152a, Isobutane, Polyquaternium 11, Polyquaternium 4, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Panthenol, PEG 6 Cocamide, Fragrance (Parfum), Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Dimethicone Copolymer, DMDM Hydantoin, Methylparaben

Is the cone water soluble? I believe it is....but will look it up.

No, I think Captivating Curls is a Suave product - didnt like that one.
That cone makes it non-CG and it doesn't appear to be water soluble, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong. I freely confess that when I read ingredients while shopping, I just look for the PEG in front of the cone, and call it a day.
That's alot of polyquats in there, though, and combined with the cone, could mean build up. Everyone is different of course, but it's something to be aware of.
I used to love, love, love Paul Mitchell's mousse. I haven't used it in ages. Is it still wonderful? You're tempting me to try a mousse again. My mom still uses it, I'm pretty sure. She's a 2a, very fine, and very short. She doesn't use anything over it, her hair is so short she doesn't need to. (I tried to get her to use my FSG/gel combo, and she tried it once, and said she got too much definition for her hair type and style; she didn't want her hair to be as "piecy" as it got with the FSG and the gel.) I wonder if I'd get more volume with the mousse? That's the main problem I have with using FSG and gel; I love how I have no frizz, and get great clumps, but I have no volume whatsoever, until 2nd and 3rd day hair, when I have volume from sleeping on it, LOL.
That's me with FSG as my styler!!

3b. fine & thick, coarse, dry, medium porosity. Sucks up product and loves ACVs! FSG is my HG!

Currently using:
Low Poo: TJ's Refresh No Poo: CoWash w/VO-5; Sonoma Soap Company sulfate-free poo
RO: Yes to Cuc; SSC Lavender Condish; Sally GVP LI: Donna Marie Miracle D&C
Style: FSG w/Aussie Instant Freeze & CIAB
My bottle says dimethicone copolyol...which is water soluble.

I thought that cone was water soluble, could someone please clarify for certain? in any case, it is pretty far down on the list, and I shampoo daily so I dont know if build up is a problem...maybe someone could comment on that too, as it has puzzled me for a long time. Auntie, I gave up on gels, I dont like them. Today I added a little AVG to the 3 in 1, and Ill report on that later. Yesterday, my hair held up all day. It does well with the Deva Foam too, but unless I am massacreing my hair with that cone, it might be worth saving over $25. Then again, the Deva foam does last a long time..have you tried the Deva foam?
PS dimethecone copolyol is water soluble.
So, do you use this mousse alone or with a gel on top of it?
So far just experimenting with anything and everything!!!!
I dont use a gel with mousse any more, I used to. Today I used some Aloe Vera gel for additional curl definition and that seems to be working well.
Lately when I use mousse I just use a leave in and mousse, nothing else...with great results..I'm still amazed. I don't know why I never tried this before.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
Hhmmmm....I'm bummed! I tried it out twice already and do not like! Its left my hair stringy, and no volume at all! (My heads a little itchy too) I usually get great volume after I diffuse but nothing! How much of it do u guys put? Maybe I'm putting too much product? Ill keep trying here and there but i ll put it aside for now!

I use about a half dollar size (if you remember half dollars) on each side; and another on the top/back. I tend to be conservative with use of products.
Do you apply anything else with it? Like.I always use gel with my mousse. Or do you just do a LI and the 3 in 1? Ill have to try w/out gel before I give up!
