Most Helpful Positive Review Love & use the entire line
I have fine, wavy, dry, shoulder blade length blonde hair, so I don't like to wash it too often since that dries it out & I have to use a lot of conditioner/anti-frizz product to get it to calm down--plus all that can weigh it down. I finally started using the entire Living Proof line with superior results. After using the Full shampoo & conditioner, I use Full Mouse followed by the Nourishing Styling Cream on top, especially in drier, frizzier areas. I usually let it air dry (I wash at night) & follow with a curling iron in the morning. Heat definitely forms the Living Proof seal. I also use the Revitalizing spray in the morning before the curling iron & as needed in subsequent days. If the humidity isn't overly bad (I'm in New Orleans), one wash & style can last me up to a full week with occasional spurts of dry shampoo (I use Suave for that). Not often, but it really can last that long!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not good for my natural waves
I realize now that I am probably not in the targeted consumer group for this product. I purchased it, hoping it would give volume and enhance curl at the back of my head. I have naturally wavy hair with a tighter curl pattern at the front and sides, and very loose, almost straight at the back. I used this product alone the first time and combined with another the second time, and the results were the same. This foam removed any hint of wave from all my hair, but even worse at the back where it is already nearly straight. It might work well for people with fine, limp or even chemically fried hair to give volume when blown out, but didn't work at all for my natural (air dried or diffused) wavy hair. I really miss the original curl enhancing product ("wave shaping, curl defining styling cream"). Despite the company saying the nourishing styling cream is the same, it just doesn't seem to perform the same way the wave shaping cream did when it first came out a few years ago. Oh well. All of these products are great for straightening hair, and make it look shiny and healthy when used that way.

Use it on damp hair before drying.
Leaves a waxy feeling on hair
RockstarBarbie from Pennsylvania
I was so excited to give this a try! I absolutely love the Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo, so I thought this would be a safe buy! I have very thin hair with some breakage, due to processing (I'm blonde) and due to health conditions and medication side effects. As soon as I dried my hair I was excited because it really did look thicker. Then when I put my fingers through it I was instantly turned off. It almost felt like a waxy, heavy residue all through my hair. Within about a half an hour, my hair was flat and weighed down. It felt oily by bedtime. I tried it several times before returning it, but I was just awful for me.
Their formula has already changed on this
Sarah from Greensboro, NC
I initially LOVED this product, and had used 2-3 bottles. On my most recent bottle when I went to use it, it came out more as a foam instead of a mousse consistency. I took back to Ulta thinking maybe I got an off bottle. Checked 3 more and it no longer has the mousse consistency. Will not be purchasing again.
Wen H. from CA
This product actually does what it says. I've tried many other brands and this one is the best by far. It really makes thin/fine hair look and feel thick. It smells nice too. I would definitely recommend!
Product fine. Bottle broke though
Michelle from Raleigh, NC
I like the product just fine. But after using only 1/3 of it, the bottle is broke. And the mousse no longer comes out at all. There is a bunch left in the bottle. Quite frustrating considering the price.
The only thickening product I have found that actually works
Inga from Minnesota
I have tried maybe 50 products over the years to get thickening results and this is the only one that has actually worked on my fine, thin hair. The downside is the price. It is too expensive, in my opinion. So I have continued to look around for a cheaper option, but haven't found anything comparable.
Great product for my fine thin hair!
BB from Dallas, Tx
Love this product!
Best thickener ever
grammy from id
Absolutely love this product. Best thickener I have ever used for my fine hair. This product give it body and lift as well as holds the style from washing to washing. Never leaves my hair with a dirty feel.
i LOVE THIS STUFF!!!! It really works!
LegalSec from Pinson, AL
This is a great hair thickening product!!!
Tammi from Oklahoma
I have curly hair and most products dry it it. Not this! It's wonderful and keeps my curls from falling flat!
Love this product
Haircare Fanatic from Florida
I didn't expect to love this product as much as I do. I have long, flat and thin hair. Although my hair is thin, I have a lot of it. With that being said... it is sometimes difficult to find products that work for me.
This product does thicken my hair and makes it feel much softer and more manageable.
However! I do believe this product would only work best on hair similar to mine. if you have thicker hair I do not think this mouse will do much for you because it does not provide volume or hold.
Yes I will buy this again
Christine from Gloucester VA
I have very fine flat hair and this mouse gave me lots of body
CorgMom from Knoxville, TN
I am 67 and have short, fine, white hair. I had problems with my scalp showing through around the side part, and I have been fighting a cowlick on the back of my head my entire life.
Today, I used the Mousse for the first time, as directed. The first difference I noticed was the way my hair felt on my brush while drying it. It felt a lot thicker than normal. After drying, there was no sign of any pink scalp peeking through, and my cowlick had disappeared. I am thrilled!
I would buy this product again and again
Tropical gal from Springfield, mo
I use it daily after shampooing and before blow dry to give lift and body to my fine, thinning hair
I would buy this over and over again!
Jedsgama from Charleston, SC
I am so glad I found this product. I have thinning hair and try anything and everything that allows me to obtain some kind of styling and this really works. I actually do feel my hair thickening and I have some coverage of my thinning areas
Wouldn't want to live without it
Connie from Philadelphia. Area
I love all living proof products. Every time I get a sample and use it I find a new product I need.
MrsMarinaT from Nor•Cal
Looking for something to boost my flat hair even when using the flat iron and THIS IS IT!! My hair is frizzy and out of control unless I smooth it with the flat iron, but that always left it flat and lifeless. This mousse gave it body and made a huge difference. Highly recommend!!!
Great mouse for thin , fine hair
Lin from Huntsville ,Alabama
This mouse is my favorite
JvN from Leesburg
My hair is very fine and I live in a humid climate. This mousse works better than any I have used.
Great for fine hair
Sandi from Nampa, ID
It is light and works great on fine hair
Carol from The Woodlands, TX
I've started using this every time I wash my hair. Definitely shake the can well and just one "blob" will do. Comb your hair and then rub it throughout your hair. I definitely have more body to my fine hair. Don't use too much. A little does a lot.
I am so glad I found this product!!
Mary from Chicago, IL
I was never a fan of mousse as I thought is contained too much alcohol and dried out my hair. I've always hated that "crunchy" look, but this product keeps hair soft and full. LOVE THIS STUFF!!
Does what ist says
Connie from Phil's suburbs
This entire line does as described. Got this as a teaser sample and fell in love with it. It's a light mousse and it truly adds volume to your hair. I love everything I have ever used in the line. I'm an allergic type and have no problems with any product. I use the thickening shampoo, conditioner and now this mousse. Their thickening cream works too but this dries more quickly. Try all of their products. They work.
LauraH from SC
I have tried many thickening products for my fine hair but Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse gave me unexpected results when I first used it. First, it smooths the little "baby hairs" that people with fine hair have in an abundance. This smoothing made my hair shinier. But the real magic is the thickening! I put a good bit of product in my hair and blew it out. My hair was almost TOO thick! I put it into a ponytail the next day and the girth of my hair was crazy! I usually wrap an elastic three times to secure my pony but could only wrap it twice after this product! So I actually had to start using a little less and avoid putting too much on my ends... and now I have the PERFECT amount of thickeness. I use the volume spray and heat protector as well and my hair looks amazing.
This is the absolute best mousse out there for my hair!
Gaylefriend from Dallas, TX
I have fine, straight, thin hair. I have been using this for 8 years and it is the absolute best!
