Most Helpful Positive Review LOVEEE this product.
Talk about a product that keeps your curls POPPIN all day. This right here is my holy grail hair product. It really helps activate your natural curl pattern and controls that frizz (along with just a LITTLE bit of the sculpting gel). After applying this product on my wash day i barely have to refresh the following day and so on. Never stop selling this!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
I've been using this product for a few weeks by scrunching it into my hair after showering, and overall I think it's just ok. I thought it would provide a little more hold, but instead I was left with very loose waves, which compared to using products with absolutely no hold and getting much better results, is a bit unexpected and disappointing. I've also found that if you use even the slightest bit too much, it will leave your hair very sticky, thin, and crunchy to the point where you just need to wash it out again, which is very frustrating. However, the one good use for this product that I have found so far is refreshing day 2 hair. I like to wet my hair a little bit and then scrunch just a little bit of this into my hair when I don't have time to wash it, and it leaves my hair looking pretty defined and shiny.
I would honestly recommend trying the not your mother's defining cream and the not your mother's gel together if you're looking to lock in moisture and really define and hold your curls with absolutely not crunch or stickiness. I've tried this before and will definitely be going back once I finish my mousse.

Overall, this mousse has a few pros and cons. It's extremely high hold and makes my hair curlier. However, it leaves my hair looking dry and frizzy. I won't be repurchasing this because it's not my favorite. If you have extremely moisturized hair I think you would love it!
The Best Hair Mousse I've Ever Tried!
Prettichic from Louisiana
I actually had sworn off using mousse on my hair ever again, until I started hearing such great things about this one, so I just had to give it a try. Typically the mousses that I have tried in the past would leave my hair rock hard and feeling like total straw. They would honestly suck every ounce of moisture from my hair and leave it drier than the Sahara Desert, but not this one. It does provide quite an amount of hold, but it's not that completely brick hard type of hold that makes me feel like I'm damaging my hair in a very major way. I don't apply this product to wet hair, as I like to instead apply it to dry morning hair when I am in a rush and just need a quick pick me up. Also this product works very well at smoothing down stray hairs around the perimeter of your head as well. It's holding power and frizz protection lasts all day, and I don't feel like it is going anything to ruin the health of my hair in any way. The smell of this product is pleasant, nothing that gives me a headache or cause stomach upset instead. You just shake the can right up, the foam easily dispenses upwards and out, and then you just pat the foam where you need it to go and smooth your flyaways down easily with this or scrunch it easily into your dry hair instead in the mornings as an instant style refresher. If you're going to use this on freshly cleansed and conditioned hair, it's best to pair with either a leave in or styling gel. If you use a cream styler and then put this product over it, please know that the amount of hold you want from the mousse will be lessened to a certain degree, due to cream stylers being very moisturizing. Most of all, any cream styler that has Shea butter in it or any other type of heavy butter(s) because it will add a level of weight to your hair and can leave the hair a bit greasy, however you can still experiment with adding this mousse on top of a styling cream that has Shea butter in it, nonetheless. It's the only mousse I trust, period.
Love this this mousse. Best of the Best!
KrissySue from South Dakota
Use the mousse after I wash it. As well as on day 2 and 3 day hair. I usually wet my hair with a spray bottle of water and apply the mousse. The mousse brings back amazing curl in my hair.
Love how it defines my curls
Helysubervi from New York
It's really moisturizing and good for cooler weather has a light hold which I don't mind, I prefer a stronger hold but it still does a great job!
Alondra from Riverside,Ca
This products helps my frizz and keeps my curls soft and sculpted
I need to find something else.
Lindsey from Michigan
I like this product but it has many issues and I think i will be buying it anymore. For one it is VERY sticky and it was continue to make me hair sticky the next day. Every time i put my hands through my hair I have to wash them because sticky hands aren't my favorite. Second it leaves my curls very stiff and crunchy, and also gives it the look of it being wet. I have very curly hair but it is very light weight so curl creams are a little heavy for me.
My New Curly Hair Favorite
ElizabethSosa23 from Houston,Texas
When I first tried this mousse, I was amazed to see that no flakes appeared throughout the day. I recently began to incorporate it into my hair routine and it honestly does wonders to my curls! All of the definition and softness without feeling crunchy or weighed down. Will be using it much more often!
Not a good mousse
Jade from Texas
This left my hair very frizzy & dries so quickly its hard to work into my hair. i tried this for a few days & was disappointed. It also leaves your hair very crunchy & hard. Will not buy again & do not reccomend. I will be going back to L'Oreal Curve It, love that mousse!!
CathyMS from New York, New York
This leaves your hair super hard and crunchy. I have heard from curly girls that you can break that cast with a hair oil. I have thin hair though so I'm afraid it will weigh my hair down even more. Not a huge fan of this.
Love this !
Joyce from undisclosed
This is so great and easy!! I love the hold that this leaves and pairs well with other products.
Is anyone bothered by the smell?
Julia from VA
I bought this last week after LOVING the curling cream from NYM. However, the smell is a little...off putting? It's just enough to bother me and it doesn't smell half as good as the curling cream. However, it does hold my 2B/2C curls well and isn't as heavy as the gel. My hands always get extremely sticky after I use it, and none of my previous mousses have done it this badly before. Eh.
Heyerin from Ia
For some reason, my 2b/2c hair just LOVES this mousse. I also love the shampoo from the Curl Talk line. I apply the mousse to my wet hair and scrunch my clumps to make sure the product is distributed well. I use three healthy doses of the mousse in my thick, shoulder-length hair. I have to follow-up with a gel to get better hold and definition. I diffuse dry with heat. My waves are enhanced by this product and touchably soft. So glad I found this! The price is affordable and these product are often on sale. The scent is nice and not overpowering. Give it a try if you have wavy hair - the mousse won't weigh down your waves!
Tish15 from Boston, MA
Love this products is a must in my routine!! I love the smell as well and I also I love that it doesn't make my hair like really hard like most mouses do. I use ir no a regular vasos yo refresh and also on my wash days
Super bouncy, shiny curls.
Charona White from Amsterdam
I love this product because it gives me a great hold and my curls dont feel sticky, they are bouncy and I can go on for 3 days without to refresh them! I love the volume and how defined my curls are!!
Anchorlove19 from Annapolis, MD
Curl talk mousse leaves my hair soft and shiny! The product glides into my hair and doesn't leave it sticky! This is my to go mousse paired with the curl talk sculpting gel! Love this product line because it works great, affordable, and found in lots of stores!
Moseily from New York
It is a very good product and it always leaves me curls with volume.
Amazing on wash day and after.
Richa from CA
I've been loving the mousse for wash days to create a light cast. If I want stronger hold I top it off with some gel.
The mousse is also great to for refreshing. Unlike some mousses it's not drying! Definitely try this one. I have to pick up other products from the curl talk line.
_jojo.linette_ from Brandon, Fl
I love the entire Curl Talk collection but the mousse has become my last step in my routine and I love how it leaves my curls with a crunch which allows my wash and go to last me a week. I get volume, definition and my curls just look amazing.
Just what I needed
Kathy j from undisclosed
This product gives length to your curls without drying them out or flaking. Not heavy (3B/3C) on my hair rock the look as is or diffuse to break the cast. Use leave in conditioner for a softer yet long look
Love love love
Neek from Los Angeles California
A lot of mousse would create build up and maket hair stingy but this have a great hold and my curls still bounced with no build up !
Curlybri from undisclosed
It's rare to find curl products that work for both me and my son but these products help with the shine and definition
My favorite mousse!
curly.girl.sam from Pennsylvania
I am absolutely in love with this mousse! I can use it with other styling products or as a single styler and I know I will get results I am happy with. This mousse is my favorite of every one that I have tried and it's also one of the most affordable ones. Do not sleep on this one!
Best Mousse Ever !!!
stephanie from Yonkers, NY
this product is amazing. it doesn't weigh down my curls and gives them great hold without a crunch. probably the best mousse i ever tried and my curls love it
Volume, shape and no crunch!
Valpalerie from San Diego
I was a leave-in conditioner and jelly (watery gel) type of girl with my fine, dense, med-porosity, med-elasticity, 2bc/3abc hair.....
And then I tried this mousse - it's amazing!
I use it on wet hair as the final product or on damp/dry hair for volume and control.
The cast is soft and easy to break without frizz. Some of the clumps are better together and look and feel great.
Can't recommend enough.
MonicaKB from Virginia
This is the cherry on top for my curls! Love it! Can never go without it.
