Science

The problem: Existing solutions don't have the right combination of hold and conditioning to enhance and shape weaker curl patterns and waves. Not to mention most mousses come with a host of tradeoffs - like stiff, sticky or crunchy hair.

The solution: Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse shapes and defines weaker curl patterns with Extended Curl Memory technology plus contracting resins that create touchable, enhanced curls that stay beautiful and frizz-free.

Powered by Extended Curl Memory technology featuring Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), optimized emollient and polymer blend and time-release conditioners that:

  • Repels humidity for superior frizz protection. Curls last 2x longer.
  • Provides residue-free cuticle smoothing for long-lasting curl definition
  • Delivers touchable hold for long-lasting, resilient curls

Finally, life-proof curls:  beautiful, frizz free, and defined - and stay that way 2x longer. 

Extended Curl Memory technology featuring:

  • OFPMA: Repels humidity for superior frizz protection and keeps hair cleaner, longer.
  • Time-released conditioning: Provides residue-free cuticle smoothing for long-lasting curl definition
  • Optimized balanced emollient and polymer blend: Delivers flexible hold for delivers long-lasting, resilient touchable curls


Shake can well. Apply to clean, damp hair and evenly distribute. The total amount used will vary by hair density, length and porosity, but start with an egg size amount and distribute evenly from root to tip. Use more as needed. Style hair as usual. For best results, let hair air dry or heat style using a diffuser.

Tips:
  • Hair should be mostly wet when applying mousse to ensure even distribution.
  • If your hair is frizz prone, don't touch or disrupt curls until they completely dry; in general air drying is a best practice.
  • To reactivate curls, apply No Frizz Weightless Spray to dry hair. This will reactivate hold and conditioning of the Stylers.
  • You can also add water to a Curl Mousse, mix in hand and apply to dry hair to reactivate curl pattern.
  • To boost the level of conditioning, you can combine the Mousse with Curl Styling Cream. Cocktail the two together by layering them into hair.

    It works pretty good. Sometimes it can make your hair a little frizzy. You need to get it on all hair, especially ends or they will stay dry. Must use the perfect amount.

      I've used this for about a week and I've noticed my hair is significantly drier than when I've used other products. I really wanted to like this product, but I'll probably only use in conjunction with a leave-in conditioner.

                I really wish I could use this product on a daily basis. I LOVED how it smelled, the way it made my curls look, everything. I'm not sure what is in this product that I am allergic too but it made my whole neck (front and back) and ears and some of my chest break out in raised itchy patches. It lasted for about 2 weeks and the skin on my ears actually peeled off (ew).

                Really wish it would have worked for me, especially for the price I paid. I'll stick w/ my tried and true Dove brand :)

                    If I use this mousse to roller set my hair can I use a flat iron once it's dry?

                      A:

                      Yes, you can flat iron your hair once dry after using Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse. The mousse will enhance your natural curl pattern, so it may not stay as straight as you'd like.

                  • Q:

                    Can I use the Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse as a setting mousse for my roller set, followed by flat iron using moderate heat (340-360 degrees)? I have healthy, long 3c natural coily hair, not chemically straightened. After Restore shampoo and deep conditioner, I apply Prime Style Extender and roller set to stretch out and dry my hair. Once dry I spray it with Straight for heat protection and anti-humidity benefits, then flat iron at moderate heat. I would love to try the mousse for a smoother silkier roller set if it's compatible with flat ironing afterward?

                      A:

                      The Curl Mousse is compatible with flat ironing, but it is going to enhance your natural curl pattern, so it most likely will not stay as straight as you would like.

                  • Q:

                    In the video they say to "air dry" the hair. I do not have time in the AM to "air dry", I use a diffuser off/on over 15 min then I "poof it" and go.

                    How does this product handle blow drying? Some products are so light the process of blow drying breaks them down.

                    Thanks!

                      A:

                      It is best to use a diffuser to heat style. Blow drying with just the hair dryer with any curly style isn't the best practice. Diffusers minimize the harsh airflow and distribute the heat better so the curls dry evenly and less frizzy. We also recommend not touching the curls too much as they're drying and to break apart curls after the hair is completely dry.

                      Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse can help to define natural waves. It features a lightweight formula that can be used on fine hair, and won't weight hair down. We think it's a great option for you!
