Best Drugstore Mousse?!?!?!

Like Tree15Likes

I didn't think any of the Frizz-Ease line was CG. Is the mousse?

I tried out the HE TT mousse and I really liked it. I got it on sale at Ralph's for $2.77 which is a dirt cheap price I would've gotten more than one can but I didn't know if I'd like it. I tried it out Sat. with a little bit of Sally's biotera gel over it for hold (I could tell the mousse did not have enough hold) and got great curls, minimal frizz. I got two great compliments too - one from a random lady at Sam's club who stopped to compliment my hair while I was shopping with my mom, which was very cool and one from my neighbor, who thought I had done something different with my hair. It was nice. I'm going to use the mousse again tomorrow to do my hair for work and see how people react.
It's important to me that the mousse be CG. So I'm glad the HE TT is CG. I can't find the 3-in-1 at any stores near me, but eventually I will, I hope!
That's me with FSG as my styler!!

I seem to get the best results with both gel and mousse. I like a liquidy-type gel instead of the thicker kind. No matter what brand i use i always go back to Paul Mitchell Super Sculpt. I like most mousses.....currently John Freida's Frizz Ease curl reviver is good......Nexxus mousse is moisturizing but it had a cone that i don't want so I've stopped using it.

I first distribute the gel evenly throughout the hair making sure to get each section, then follow with a lite amount of mousse, being sure to cover the ends.

No cones in the Frizz Ease mousse is good

I put the HE TT mousse in my hair first, then follow up with some Bioterra gel scrunched into the ends and lightly all over the sides and back as a sealer/for extra hold. It worked great the first time I did it, and so so today. I think today was only so so because I didn't dry it all the way like I did Sat. I only dried it for like 20 minutes before I had to SOTC and go to work. My hair looked good but it was alot flatter today than it was Sat. Sat. I had fabulous curls and alot of body and movement.

I like the gel over the mousse though.

Ok, i tried it the other way around....mousse then gel...seemed a bit heavy that way. I guess i wanted to make sure the mousse prevented any type of frizz so I may have put more than I should have. All in all I guess it turned out fine.

I just tried Pantene mousse today and so far I really like it. My hair is soft and no frizz. I think it is CG. I'm interested to see if I can get good results again tomorrow.
I love using mousse, too, but am always unsure as to the best way to apply it. For those of you who use it on a regular basis, do you apply it to soaking wet hair, or do you get some of the water out? Do you plop at all after using it?

TIA!

And the mousse is applied right after that to soaking wet hair and then plopped. I also use a pea size amount of my conditioner as well before getting out of the shower...right now my HG conditioner is Tresseme naturals with avocado and aloe. HTH!

Thank you, thank you, Beebop! That helps so much! I remember reading about the Mandarin Magic awhile back, and it sounds great! I'll have to pick some up!

Clairol 3 in 1...i have lots of 3b curls, pretty dense, and I'm not sure about porosity. I did the strand thing and i thought High but my hair won't dye easy, and loses moisture and drys out quick. so i thought maybe my cuticle was pretty sealed so maybe low. Who knows. But anyways, i tried it today and i love it. I usually use eco styler gel but this seems way better. Dries so much quicker and it gives me amazing shine and softness. Loooove so far. Idk if it gives second day hair. We'll see, hopefully it does!

Drying quickly usually means high porosity.

The Condition 3-in- 1 is on the bottom shelf at Walgreens and CVS, hope it all works for you!

Thanks, Beebop, for the heads-up about the smell! I love mousse, so I'm really excited about trying out this combo!
