          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.

                  The Worst Mousse I've ever Used

                      Comments about Kms California Curl Up Wave Foam:

                      This is by far the worst mousse I've ever used. In small print on the back it reads "gel-to-foam: but it's gel. Not mousse. It's very heavy and weighs down hair.

                      The worst party is how sticky it is. My hair is disgustingly sticky - reminiscent of a scene from There's Something About Marry.

                      Sticky. Icky. Blech.

                          I did not care for this. My stylist had recommended it to me. It felt too heavy on my hair and weighed it down. It did not create pretty waves. In fact, it just made my curls harder to work with. I have curly hair that is somewhat thick, but fine in texture. This might work better on someone with thicker coarse hair. I ended up returning it to Ulta.

                            This helps my hair to hold its natural wave and also controls frizz. I've used it for over a year and will continue to buy it.
