Default Biotera Mousse

I've used the Biotera Alcohol-free Styling Mousse a few times and love it!!! I had stopped using mousse a few months ago (Pantene Curling Mousse) because of the alcohol....it was really drying my scalp. But I noticed my hair had way less volume and definition. Then I went to Sally's and saw Biotera had a mousse without alcohol and it looked CG so I decided to give it a try. Loooove it!!! I use it after CJ Curl Fuel, scrunch it in and let my hair dry for about 10-30 min, then add some HETT, diffuse, and spray on Ion Alcohol-free Hairspray(another awesome product!!) and voila! My hair has waaaaaaaay more volume and I even have been getting decent 2nd and 3rd day hair! Woohoo!

I've also used it in the past and really liked it and then I found the condition 3-in-1 alcohol free CG mousse and liked it even more because it has a little more hold. The Biotera mousse didn't work well at the beach for me but the gel worked great!

I love the Biotera Mousse so much, I am always surprised it doesn't get more love on these boards. I can always count on a great hair day when I use a tiny dab of the Biotera Curl Creme, and then top it off with the Biotera Mousse. I typically do NOT layer products, but this is my one exception, definitely a winning combo.

I really like this mousse but I did learn the hard way that too much can be a bit of an issue!! On Sunday when I styled my hair, I think I used more than I needed and while my hair looked pretty good (although a tad bit crunchier than I'm used to) by yesterday it was starting to feel a little greasy. Today it was just not doing well at all so I used some dry shampoo (Oscar Blandi) and *gasp* brushed it through!! I know it's horrible to do but I felt like it was the only way to salvage myself. Tomorrow I'll be starting fresh and will use a much smaller amount!
