CG-approved volumizing foam/mousse recs

used it today, again, over CK and I used more. Now: the humidity is 50% and the dews are 49% according to the frizz forecast, and I have "tricky" curls in this, also according to the frizz forecast.

But I had great hair today. I used SM coconut hibiscus and TN conditioner with a touch left in. I think I could have used a bit more of the foam at the crown. I will try that tomorrow, as t he weather is supposed to be warmer, but the frizz forecast about the same. If Giovanni works well for me, I can forego the Deva foam, which is pricey. I dont notice a smell with Giovanni foam. My curls are well defined and have a lot of movement. Nice.

Vidal Sassoon makes a pretty nice mousse. I think it's effectively volumizing...which is something my hair does not need.

I like the smell of the Wrap n roll more than the Giovanni too.

I was wondering if it could be what I am using under it, FSG, that does not mix well. I will try & experiment with different leave ins.
