Tresemme Flawless Curls Extra Hold Mousse

Jan 29, 2013 - Has anyone noticed a change in formula in this? I noticed that the packaging had changed a bit, cap is now green instead of black, but didn't think anything of it. After a couple uses it was obvious that they jacked up the protein in this mousse! Being protein sensitive, this just no longer works for me :( loved the old formula!

Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Styling Gel Extra Strong

Jul 06, 2011 - I was not impressed with this gel. You must take into consideration that I have just recently been embracing my curls and have not had a lot of experience with styling, but this gel did nothing for my curls. I found it difficult to distribute evenly leaving my hair very uneven looking. It left my hair kind of crunchy and when attempting to scrunch out, it just created frizz and left me feeling like I had put no product in. After about a week of using this, my 3b curls had become really relaxed and super frizzy. I have since gone back to using a mousse which I really prefer anyways. Maybe gels just aren't for me, or maybe this product really isn't very good.

Tresemme Curl Hydration Lotion Creme

Jul 05, 2011 - I just bought this along with the Tresemme Flawless Curls Mousse yesterday. I used both products so I cannot tell you what one would be like without the other but my curls look great! This is just a leave in conditioner so I would not expect to use it like a styling product and get any more definition or curl than you typically would. When combined with the mousse though, I got beautiful, soft, frizz free curls. A previous reviewer stated that it was not CG but the only cone I see in it is a PEG one so I do believe it is CG. One thing that concerns me is that both of these products have a form of protein in them and I worry about overdoing the protein. We shall see how my hair looks after some time of use.
