Hi Everyone!

Lately I have been experimenting with various mousses and styling foams to give my lifeless hair some volume. Anyone have a favorite? Drugstore, online, etc. doesn't matter. TIA!

VERY fine 2B/3A hair
Chin-length - growing it out...again.
I like Design Essentials for Naturals. I also loved Paul Mitchell's Mousse before my BC--I honestly haven't researched the ingredients or tried to use it since but I will soon as I loved it. I don't like the Extra Body Mousse by PM but the regular one.
My HG fave is Condition 3 in 1 Mousse....never lets me down! I'm a 2B and this does a lovely job of giving me hold, bounce, shine...all the things us wavies crave. Does seem like it's harder to find in the drugstore anymore; I usually order it from Walgreens online. Here is the link...and make sure you get the white can with the purple writing. It's not fancy-looking, but it works marvelous...

Alfaparf's Semi di Lino. Hard to get here and pricey but really good and you only need a little bit (well I do) so it lasts ages.
3b in South Australia.
Unfortunately I can't use anything Deva. Every single one of their products gives me terribly painful breakouts. JCS does this too. I have problems with certain oils, and those two brands are detrimental to my skin. I've tried HETT with 'meh' results. I like the Tigi Strong Mousse, but I'm not so crazy about the smell. I'll have to give some of the other ones a shot. Thanks ladies!!

Not a mousse but I've been getting good volume from the l'oreal ever curl cream gel (blue lid, swirled in the container)
I also like tigi foxy curls mousse

My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.
Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam! I LOVE that stuff! It is also CG-friendly.

Vivant Revitafoam is IMHO the very best mouse/foam you can get. Its gives soft hold but also moistures dry lifeless tresses. The catch is its not cheap

... sooo Taft Curl Mouse is what I actually use daly, gives my hair a soft bounce with out going crunchy

I've tried other products but I always end up going back to Pantene Curl Defining Mousse. I apply it after plopping (when my hair is damp). On subsequent days I spritz my hair with water when I wake up and apply a little more mousse to redefine my curls. It's never sticky and gives me good bounce!
Curlsnswirls - I buy mine from the salon where I get my hair done. I think it's mostly sold through salons but it may be available on line. HTH!

ive just started using the morrocanoil mousse as well, i really like it. i use my leave in condish and oil first, i kind of rake it in my hair, after ive showered/washed it. i i use one full pump flip my hair unside down then i work the mousse in my hair. i wet my hands with cold water and scrunch a bit.
it really gives me nice curls.

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
