I dont think we have to spend the big bucks to have good hair with mousse. Although I favor the Deva foam, I am running low on it so am using the Clairol (purple) 3 in 1 conditioning mousse. It seems to work fine. I have also used Pantene, mostly in the summer, and then by itself, whereas now, I am using my foam and mousse with a gel underneath. I think the Clairol mousse is a buck fifty. Worth a try!
