      this is an "ok" product

      By hair fanatic

      from Wausau, wi

      I like this product because it does do it's job. It texturizes and builds volume and makes my curls better but I don't like how sticky and tacky it makes my hair feel

      Good Mousse if used properly

          Best Uses

            Okay the 1st time I bought this mousse I did not care for it and went to return it and talked to one of the associates at the salon. She told me not to use the mousse on the roots and focus more on lower half. I start at 3/4 and go down and comb through and let air dry for a few minutes and then use diffuser and it works much better. I do think you need to use a diffuser with this mousse rather than full air dry. I also do not use much of it like I do with other mousses.

            Comb Through Hair After Applying!!!!

            By Ali Marie

            from Tampa, FL

            Pros

            • Amazing texture
            • Non-crunchy Finish

            Cons

            • Must follow directions

            • Manages Thick Wavy Hair

            I was looking for a more traditional mousse when I accidentally bought this gem. I have very long, super thick, wavy hair that does not cooperate well.

            I apply Curvaceous Wave Ahead Texturizing Mousse to dry hair as I would a traditional mousse (I use mousse for frizz, nothing else), and then brush my hair to distribute the product evenly.

            Once the product dries, my hair is left frizz-free and looking crazy good all day long. This product definitely surprised me, and I'm so glad I purchased it.

            No good

              Best Uses

                I went into the store this weekend, and asked for a mousse that would be good for my mostly straight, below the shoulder hair to hold body for when I round brush blow dry. The store associate and salon personnel recommended this! I am baffled. I did a treatment on my hair tonight, and couldn't wait to use it, unfortunately, I had to rewash my hair as soon as it was in. That's the last time I take advice from a sales associate. I should have gone with my gut and tried the Rusk Maximum Volume Mousse

                PS: I did comb it through, and it was still disgusting.

                Tacky, Sticky Mess

                • Sticky

                Best Uses

                • Craft Glue

                Hands down, the WORST thing I have ever put in my hair. I realized it was tacky/gummy feeling about 3 min after I put it on. Left to run errands, and as it dried, it felt so much worse. I was disgusted everytime I touched my hair. It felt like hairspray on a really bad cheap Halloween wig. I couldn't wait to get home and take a shower. How this product made it out of testing and into production is completely beyond me.

                  • Makes Hair Hard Crunchy
                  • More Like A Gel

                  Best Uses

                    Loved Redken's flexible spring mousse, but accidentally bought this one instead. Left my hair sticky and hard like gel would.

                    Pros

                    • don't need to use much

                    Cons

                    • Made my hair feel dirty
                    • Sticky
                    • Waste of money

                    Best Uses

                      I used this product along with another Redken product I had never used before and could not determine which product had left my hair sticky and feeling dirty, but I did discover it was this mousse. I found it did not leave me with texturized curls, but instead I was left with sticky feeling hair that I could not run my hands through. I lost my receipt, otherwise I would return it. I am that dissatisfied with this product.

                      great product for wavy hair

                      By Laura

                      from Fayetteville, GA

                      I have found the secret to liking this product is to comb through the hair once the mousse is applied as per directions (applying more mousse won't produce better results). I started doing that and haven't had any problems with that greasy or sticky feeling.

                      there are better products than this

                      from charlotte, nc

                      I have thin curly hair that tends towards frizz. This product is very heavy and waxy. There are much better products out there than this one. It just doesn't compete.

                      favorite product so far

                      By Laura

                      from Fayetteville, GA

                      Of all the new products by Redken for curly hair, this one is my favorite. The first time I used this product, it did leave my hair sticky. However, the trick is to comb your hair through therefore distributing the mousse (and following directions is vital). Once I started doing that, I never had a problem with sticky, gross hair. My curls are more defined when I use this product.
