When you think of hair mousse, you might have an ‘80s flashback. But think again! Mousse today is not the alcohol laden stuff that made hair back then a sticky, crunchy mess. With this new crop you can get volume, repair and style without anyone trying to casually ask if you overdid it on the mousse today.
In the past few months, we’ve seen a new crop of hair mousse options hit the shelves. Today, we’re taking a look at both the new releases as well as our older favorites.
Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse – Dove believes in super soft, shiny and manageable hair and their mousse will help you achieve that. It conditions the hair while also giving it bounce and helping you style. Think of it as a styling product as well as extra conditioning for your tresses. (about $4)
Nexxus Pro Mend Split End Bodifying Mousse – A new addition to the Pro Mend line, this mousse helps to repair those annoying split ends while also amping up volume. According to Nexxus, Pro Mend Mousse “binds up to 84 percent of split ends back together with continued use.” It can be used with other Pro Mend products for extra help, and with each use, you will begin to see results. ($13)
Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte – Strong hold is a Sebastian hallmark and this mousse is here to give you extra strong hold and volume while also protecting hair from heat damage. Hair remains soft but ready for whatever style you want to create. ($20)
Phyto Professional Volume Intense Mousse – The mousse is for anyone who wants big volume but is especially great for those with thin and fine hair. It works wonders on those hair types that need a lot of help in the volumizing department and is very blow out friendly. ($22)
TRESemme Extra Firm Control Mousse – This one is extra good at controlling flyaways and frizz while also pumping up your strands and holding your hairstyle in place. It does this while never weighing hair down and letting it have plenty of movement. (about $5)
