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.

I used to use TGIN's mousse but I definitely found my new bae! Can we say volume??!! Amazing day one hair! Soft, bouncy, juice and defined.
Leaves my hair sticky
Christina from USA
I wanted to love this but it leaves my hair so sticky and doesn't moisturize at all.
Leaves a residue
JustKaty from Kentucky
I experimented with the amount in my hair and how I dried it; I tried it on its own and with other products. This just doesn't work for me. It leaves a sticky film over my hair even when I used the smallest amount. It also makes my hair frizzier than it normally would be. It gets 2 stars because it gives pretty good definition and great hold (just not in the shape I want). I used half the can before leaving this review. This is not a first impression.
Would not buy again
Andi from Lewisville, TX
I would use it after showering, while my hair was still damp. While my hair was not frizzy, it became more dry, was incredibly tangled when it usually is not, and felt awful to touch. Was very disappointed with my purchase
Jessica from New Jersey
I've been using and repurchasing the NYM curl line for over a year now and it's good for the price. But for being so cheap, you get what you pay for. This mousse always leaves my hair with residue and greasy to the touch. It does the job, but I've used better mousses than this and will not be using this line anymore. I don't recommend it, especially if you have thin fine hair.
It's the Mousse for me!!!
Caribbeancurly from Florida
This is my secret styling product for beautiful, defined, soft curls with touchable hold. I have used this as my one and done and I was blown away by how naturally shiny and frizz free my hair appeared. I've also used this as my finisher on top of other leave-ins and stylers and my curls have never looked better. I get amazing volume, defined ringlets and zero frizz. I keep this product in stock in my arsenal. The absolute best styler I have ever used.
I had to stock up on Black Friday!
Tiara from Jackson, Ms
I use this last in my styling process and I have the most definition ever. My curls last til day 5 with this mousse. I love it!
Darlinb from Indiana
I wanted this product tow rom because I have curly hair. I want to use products that are as natural as I can but this products does not work on my hair.
Volume, fullness, doesn't weigh your hair down + more volume
Christina from Florida
I love this mousse, I have 3A/3B curls and my hair is really really thin and fine, this is the only product I've tried that doesn't weigh down my hair, it leaves a really strong and stringy looking cast but after a couple minutes of scrunching it out it looks phenomenal, I apply it on wettt hair, not completely soaking wet but really wet and I apply a handful to each side of my hair, and then flip my hair over and 2 more handfuls that way applying by raking, smoothing, and scrunching, I don't get any stickiness, and after an hour and a half of air drying when my hair is completely dry, I scrunch out the crunch just by flipping my hair over and from side to side just using my bare hands to scrunch for maybe 5 min tops and it results in beautiful curls, and sooooo much volume, I've never been able to get this kind of volume and this much fullness to my hair with any other product, the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it only lasts me the day, after I wake up the next morning my hair looks nothing like it did the day before, and it doesn't give me as much definition as a styling cream like Rizos curls, but I think the volume really makes up for it
Sticky and stringy
Mickie from Syracuse, NY
I thought I'd try this product as I liked the leave in but I was disappointed. It made my waves stiff, stringy and sticky. Won't be buying again.
This is not specifically for curly hair.
Cheis from Asheboro, NC
I usually purchase the Not your mother's curly cream. I love it will always purchase it. And the mousse was new so why not try it right? NO. It's just regular mousse. My hair is hard, flat, crunchy, and just not it. I returned this product and bought the 3-1 conditioner because it's winter and I need my moisture.
Limpy from Aurora co
I hope this product is never discontinued, !!!
Brooke from Minnesota
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!
