Living Proof Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse is a styling mousse that shapes and defines natural waves and curls that need a boost. When the complete Curl line is used together, curls are beautiful, defined and frizz free - and they stay that way 2x longer. Powered by Living Proof's Extended Curl Memory, Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse:
  • Provides frizz and humidity protection
  • Creates flexible, long lasting touchable curls
  • Provides extra hold
  • Light conditioning

For extra conditioning, use with Living Proof's Curl Defining Styling Cream or No Frizz Leave In Conditioner.

Living Proof Curl is powered by our Extended Curl Memory technology and patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) so natural curls and waves stay beautiful, conditioned, defined and frizz-free longer. Extended Curl Memory technology delivers beautiful, defined, frizz-free curls that last 2x longer. Extended Curl Memory technology contains Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), an optimized blend of emollients and polymers, and time-release conditioners combine to repel humidity for strong frizz protection.

Shake can well before each application and hold upright to dispense. Apply an egg-sized amount to wet hair, evenly distributing from roots to ends. Apply more as needed.

Apply to damp hair if you want to feel the hold.

The amount you use will vary based on your hair's density, length, and porosity. For best results, let hair air dry or heat style using a diffuser.

            UGH - What a sticky mess. I was looking for a product that would define and smooth my curls. As soon as I put it on it started to dry my curls into a frizzy, dry mess. I had to re-wash my hair and start over. May work better on wavy hair, not very curly.

                This is perfect for when you want to just let your hair dry with a wave. I usually straighten my hair since I just have loose waves that go straight easily. This gave me a nice wave and no frizz.

                  Makes my hair have more body and lifts the curls. My hair is heavy, so it's hard to find a product that doesn't weigh it down more.

                      I used this product one time three days ago, just a small amount and hair dryer on low heat. My hair is so dry now that I can't get my fingers through it during a shampoo. I'm headed to my salon for a conditioning repair treatment. I will be returning this product to Ulta.

                          I have 2b/c, high porosity, long, thick hair. I can get a nice curl if I use the right products and blow dry with a diffuser. This is not one of those products. It turned my hair into a dry, frizzy, sticky puffball. I have more curl definition when I don't use any product. The fragrance, while not unpleasant, is way too strong and lingers. I couldn't wait to get home and wash this mousse out of my hair. Way to expensive for poor results.

                              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?

                              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!

                              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!

                              Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse is an extra-hold formula, so it is excellent for thick hair. It controls frizz yet leaves hair flexible and touchable, so it is a great option for you!
