The story of Mousse

Perfect style takes more than just hairspray!  One of the favorite styling products is Mousse.  What is it for?  How do you use it?  What do you use it for? 

Mousse is added to your hair for extra volume & shine.  The name is a French term meaning foam.  It was Mousse Mania when it was introduced in the 1980's era of big hair. Most of today's mousse products also provide extra conditioning.  It works by using synthetic resins to coat the hairs and assist it in taking shape.  It can also be used on curly or permed hair to reduce frizz.

As a versatile hair styling product, hair mousse is a popular choice for both short and long hairstyles. When hair mousse is applied to wet hair that is allowed to air dry, the hair is often left with a "wet" look that can be "crunchy" feeling, but unlike hair gel, hair mousse combs out easily for a softer look. When hair mousse is applied to wet hair that is dried with a hair dryer, it provides additional volume and hold.

Thin hair types looking to achieve thick/fuller hair: Requires a ‘volumizing’ mousse. With this, you need to ensure you hair is a bit damp for the product to seal, flip your head (head facing the floor), distribute the mousse from roots to ends evenly, which can be properly done by using a comb or hairbrush. Then to finish, and add complete fullness, use a blow dryer with your head flipped upside down for 10-15 minutes.

Straight or wavy hair types looking for curly hair: For this look you will need: curlers, hair spray and mousse. This is exactly like the sections stated above, however you will need to add curlers while your hair is damp. In order to do this properly, section your hair in small sections while you apply mousse and curlers. Once the hair is dry, add hair spray to each curl from the roots to ends to ensure you receive long lasting results

WHAT TO BUY:  There are many mousse products available now.  In fact, most professional hair care product brands have a mousse.  Some have more than one, depending on what you are looking for in your style.  There are mousse's specific for volume, some add body, some are for defining curls.  Hold can be light to maximum.  You can browse all mousse products available at Beauty Care Choices on a single page and find the right one for you!  PLUS right now you can save up to 30% on any mousse!
