    Comments about Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead Texturizing Mousse:

    Other reviewers say they hate this product, but I love it. I have very fine 3b curls and even distrubution in wet hair is key when using this product. I section off layers and apply in a raking motion from root to tip. Others have even said they can't comb through after using it - but are you supposed to be combing curls anyway?

      Works better than other products I've used. Wished that it gave a little more texture.

        Comments about Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead Texturizing Mousse:

        Just started using product and I read reviews before purchasing. The reviews warned it was sticky, which it is.

        The product works well for my naturally curly hair. Defines the curl and holds it.
        I use a SMALL amount. Don't use the amount you would for a regular mouse. I only use a small walnut size and that's enough for me for my entire hair. Apply to midshaft of hair down to ends.

        I have used it on both wet and dry hair. I use less when on dry hair.

        Comments about Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead Texturizing Mousse:

        I had help from a sales associate to find a mousse that was light weight and good for wavy hair, she recommended this to me. Honestly, this was not worth the money or effort in trying this, it left my scalp greasy looking after I had just washed it and my hair looks weighed down. I was very disappointed and will be returning this product.

          I love how this product helps even my long hair keep the natural curls and waves I have. I've noticed that it even holds up well when you don't wash hair everyday, the curls stay and may even deepen.

            Comments about Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead Texturizing Mousse:

            What a HUGE disappointment. This is the worst mousse/hair product I have ever tried. I like the Curvaceous shampoo & conditioner and thought I might like the mousse. Wrong! This is Awful stuff! I put a small amount on my hands and they stuck together.. literally.. I had to wash my hands and try again. I put a small bit on my hands, then on my hair and my hands kept sticking to my hair like glue! This stuff is so dense and sticky that it can't be distributed through hair. I don't know how anyone can use this product.. Back to Ulta it will go for a better product..

              Comments about Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead Texturizing Mousse:

              This product is disgusting and gross. If you have naturally light, bouncy ringlets, this product will destroy your hair. I LOVED the previous Redken mousse; it was light, airy, non-sticky, and you only needed very little. This product stays sticky in your hair all day, even if you only use a dime-sized amount. It is not worth the money. I felt like my hair would attract feathers and leaves on a windy day it was so sticky.

              I have tried so many different mousses over my life-time. THIS IS THE WORST. I would not recommend this to anyone.

                Comments about Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead Texturizing Mousse:

                I love, love, love this product line. I use a lot of the Redken Curvaceous products including this, the shampoo, the Full Swirl Hair Cream, and the conditioner. This took a bit to get used to. I didn't like it at first and actually stopped using it after a few days, but it made such a difference in my curls, I went back to it. You really can't use much of it. I don't use it at the roots and only use about half of what I normally would when using mousse.

                I have always hated my curls becauuse they are not pretty and tend to be frizzy. I just didn't have the right products. I have not straightened my hair in months because of this stuff!

                  Comments about Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead Texturizing Mousse:

                  I have repurchased this product again and again. My hair is naturally wavy/curly, but has absolutely no texture. It is extremely fine and most mousse products weigh it down and make it feel crunchy. This mousse does not! It has a very light weight that successfully defines my curls while maintaining some volume. Its texture is almost like a super airy whipped cream - it's not as thick and sticky as other mousses I've tried in the past. After trying numerous hair products through the years that promised the same things this product does, I have finally found the one mousse that holds true to those promises for my hair type. If you are frustrated with fluffy, undefined curls because of superfine, silky-textured hair, give this a try! I never am without it!
