I always use gel b/c my hair does need a lot of hold but I would like to try mousse just to see how my hair would look with it. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a CG friendly mousse that has good hold. TIA!

Joiwhip is a better value for the price. It has lots of hold and crunch, but it is fairly easy to scrunch it out. I really like the Redken one as well, but it is more costly for a smaller container.

Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
I use Alfaparf semi di lino firm hold mousse and really like it, not entirely sure it's cg but I think it is. I've also used Joiwhip and PM with good results. I actually find that any mousse reduces volume for me but I seem to be in the minority with this, most people seem to get more volume with them.
On a whim I bought HEBE mousse and gel on sale a week ago. I usually have to layer a small amount of gel over any mousse, but, if you're looking for hold, this mousse seems to hold/crunch more than most gels I've used in the past. When the humidity is down, I look for products that volumize, and this is really nice for the price. I'm still working out the amount to use (using too much out of habit, so I have a bit of crunch to scrunch), and what co/leave-in to layer with, but, all-in-all, I think it's worth the purchase.
Another vote for Joiwhip! It's CG, has good hold and you only need a little bit.

I know this is probably bad, but I just use pantene mousse & gel... I use Osis Tex it gel when I want my hair to look realllllly good or really curly, but that stuff is expensive!!! I'm paying my way through college and I don't have that much extra money to spend on hair products!
I just recently experimented with a mousse rec I came across on the site and I love it! It said in that thread that it's the same consistency as joiwhip but it's super cheap and you can find it at the drugstore. $2.29! It's called Condition 3-in-1 Maximum Hold Mousse. CG friendly, natch.

So what's the difference between Joiwhip & Joico Ice Whip? I don't know if the last one is even being made still.

Gotcha! Then I'll remove it from my stocking stuffer idea list. I tried this mousse some time ago & didn't like it for some reason.
I may be a little late, but for drugstore mousse, I love love love Tresemme's mousse for curly hair. It's a black container with green accents and it's my everyday HG product...and it's cheap!

I loved the results that Pantene's curl mousse first gave me, but it really dried my hair out after a couple uses.
2a/M-C/ii hair. Super long.
The name is Flawless Curls Curl Enhancing Mousse

I'm actually not sure how CG it is, I found it while I was being pretty diligent about looking for 'cones, so i don't see any that are blatantly cones..but i"m not very knowledgeable about CG ingredients...So I apologize if I got your hopes up and steered you in the wrong direction, but I really do love this mousse!
