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.

      Comments about Living Proof Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse:

      An all in one product that provides definition, holds my curls, and hydrates. I've tried tons of curl products and have never really been a mousse user because others left my hair crunchy and undefined, but this Living Proof mousse is never crunchy and it leaves my hair voluminous and conditioned.

        Comments about Living Proof Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse:

        This is a good product but would be better if it fight frizz a little better. My hair is wavy/curly and this product helps define them but on its own it leaves fly away sat the top of my hair. When I bought this I received a sample of their PHD styler. When used in conjunction they work much better. Personally, I'm not going to spend $50 in hair products at once so this is not convenient for me

          I have used it after my hair is dry tonrefeesh my curl, but it is stiffening. The curl is usually enough for 24 hours, and can be brushed. I use it first, and add the cream when my hair is almost completely dry for thickening.

              I have fine and curly hair. It's hard for me to to find products that do not weigh my hair down, and also do not separate my curls. I have been living proof curly line for close to a year, and I love love love it.!!! It saves me time because shampoo and conditioner is one step. Mousse is light as long as u do not use too much. I definitely recommend this product!

              • 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.

                Does this product work well for fine, straight/wavy hair to boost the waviness? Will it make my hair more limp? Is there a better product for this request?

                  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!
