        Comments about Kms California Curl Up Wave Foam:

        I have very thin and straight hair, but on occasion I like to take a break from heat styling and scrunch my hair! I've only found one other mousse that actually holds a scrunch, but it was discontinued. I decided to take a stab at this- and it works amazingly! My thin, straight hair gets transformed into perfect looking beachy waves when I use this product. The hold is strong, but feels like I don't have any product in my hair. This will be the mousse I buy from now on. The smell is a little bizarre, but I'm able to look past that. Awesome product, highly recommend.

          I think using the same product every day doesn't give me the curls I want so I switch it up a lot.

                  this is not a mousse, it is a slightly airy gel. Heavy, hard to distribute through thick hair. I don't know what happened to KMS - they used to be my go-to for curly hair products, but now their products are too heavy and give me crunchy hair. very disappointing.

                  After shampoo, dry hair; apply on hair - then use finger or hair pick to run through hair while drying w/hair blow dryer.

                    I'm surprised to see so many poor reviews on this since it's my favorite mousse. I have naturally wavy hair that tends to be messy and stringy. I put this in my (not soaking wet) hair, then use a diffuser. The curls are a little stiff, but I leave them while I finish my makeup. After I get dressed, I come back and scrunch the curls with my hands. This makes them soft, but they still keep their nice shape. I make sure to shake the can well before I use it. Sometimes it doesn't foam up as well when it's low or old, but I don't have problems with it in general. After I spray it in my hand, I wait about 10 seconds or so for it to foam up.

                        I loved the way my hair looked after air drying, but the chemical smell was awful. My boyfriend asked if the smell was my new hair "stuff", and that if it worked he would get used to it. But, I ended up re-washing my hair because the strong odor gave me a headache! I returned the product to ULTA.
