We really like the way this smells and the ingredients on the inside.
We also like the texture it imparts and the hold it provides most users. But you do need to remember that if you have stick-straight hair, it's not a miracle worker.
That said, if you want good volume and texture without the curls, you'll get it. And if you have some texture, you can make waves. Either way, you won't end up with crunchy hair; it will stay touchably soft.
Hold: This does offer the strongest of holds, though it's enough to keep most wavy, textured styles in place. It's not strong enough for those that find their hair never holds a curl.
Shine: While you may find a little extra shine in your hair when using this, you shouldn't expect it to give you a lot. But, that's not why you turn to this mousse.
Scent: This smells like a rich and decadent flowery perfume - most people love it and many find it somewhat light and neutral, but there are some that find it's a little too "old lady".
What's inside: The sea kelp extract imparts the same sort of texture and volume to your hair that sea salt does.
So, if you love your hair at the beach, you definitely need to give this product a try. Also, of the few ingredients inside, you won't find parabens, sulfates, or alcohol. But, it does include added fragrance.
Application: To get the waves you want, you should use this mousse after washing, conditioning, and towel drying your hair.
Work this through your hair before drying and styling. All of 2 pumps of mousse is enough for fine or short hair, and unless your hair is to your knees, you shouldn't need more than 5.
Price: While the MSRP for this mousse is just over $16, you can find it for under $14 on Amazon - with Prime shipping.
That's for a 5.1-ounce bottle, which works out to a little less than $2.75. That's not exactly cheap, but finding mousse of this calibre is tough; just get it.
