      Awesome!

      By lutheranchick13

      from Lansing, MI

      Pros

      • Easy To Use
      • Effective
      • Lightweight

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Daily Use
        • Fine hair

        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!

        Love at first use

        By tarheelntx

        from Richardson, TX

        Pros

        • Effective
        • Smells Great

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Fine hair
          • Thin hair
          • Wavy hair

          My hair is fine and thin. However, my hair has gotten wavier and wavier after having children. Thank you hormones! I used to fight the wave by straightening it with a flat iron every morning. Recently, I've been using all sorts of products to enhance the natural wave and blow drying my hair with a diffuser. This mousse gave my hair the prettiest curl. I have never liked my hair until I used this. It did make my hair a little bit tacky, but I found that the added texture made it appear thicker and fuller-- a bonus in my book. This is the only product I have used that enhanced the wave, gave my hair tons of volume, and did not leave the dreaded crunchy curl look.

          this is an "ok" product

          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

                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

                Best Uses

                • 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

                Pros

                  Cons

                  • Sticky
                  • Thick
                  • Waxy

                  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

                    By curly girl

                    from Denver, CO

                    Pros

                    • None

                    Cons

                    • Sticky
                    • tacky
                    • Waxy

                    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.

                      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.
