I love styling my hair, especially when I am going somewhere special. During a trip to Boots, I decided I would pick up some hair mousse, I choose the Boots Essential Styling Mousse Curl because it was much cheaper than the other brand names on the shelf at the time. I have quite curly hair naturally, so I like to use this mousse just to hold my curls in place for longer.
Application I have found that this mousse is really easy to apply, sometimes I put it in my hair after I have washed it and before I blow dry it and it gives my hair extra volume, however I usually just use it when I am curling my hair. I have found that it is best to only use a little bit of this mousse at a time in my hair as it gives quite a good hold and it leaves my hair very sticky if I use too much. To curl my hair with this mousse I simply apply it to my hair after washing and then let it dry natural, this gives me a nice mix of curls and waves.
Results I think that this is a great mousse, it has quite a good hold on my hair and when I curl my hair, it lasts for a day or two, just needing a few touch ups after sleeping on it. Personally I do not really like the smell of hair mousse, however I can tolerate this one, it smells like most mousses I have ever tried, except it isn’t as strong so the smell does not linger for as long. As long as I do not overdo it with this mousse, my hair does not feel overly sticky when I have curled my hair, it actually feels quite natural. I really like this mousse because it does not weigh down my hair.
Price and Availability You can buy a 200ml bottle of this mousse for around £1 in Boots, I think that this is a great price for a hair mousse, especially one that holds as well as this one.
Overall I think that this is a great mousse, it is cheap, easy to apply, smells ok and holds my curls in my hair perfectly. The only thing to watch out with is that you do not use too much in your hair at a time. Overall I would give this mousse 4 out of 5 stars.
