Most Helpful Positive Review Nice Hair!
As someone with very thin problematic prone to breaking hair I was skeptical about this product. It's very nice though. With ten different benefits in 1, this mousse seemed a bit too good to be true. However, when I tried this product my hair became like silk. I applied it to my hair all throughout and it had no sticky or crunchy texture. The feeling it gave my hair! After I straightened, it left me with super creamy smooth, silky, and extra shiny locks. I kept running my hands through, even the next day, and I didn't get a single knot or tangle. The mousse really does nourish, moisturize, and soften. It added a bit of volume when I added it to the roots, but not a lot. The mousse claims to be for light hold and that rings true, so don't get it if you're looking for strong. The claims are a lot but I find most of them hold true. The only one I didn't see myself was the reducing of frizz. Now I'm not sure what they consider frizz but I have little baby hairs all over that stick up out of my hair. This has resulted after years of constantly losing lots of hair for unknown reasons, so I'm constantly having a army of little baby hairs building back up. When using this it actually made them worse. Perhaps because of the silicone in it? But everything else was amazing and the smell of the product is that really good creamy woodsy argan oil smell that we all know and love. My sister, who really likes this brand, was always using their stuff, but when I received this to try for honest review, it my very first time I had tried the brand myself. I can see now why she likes them so much. It's very nice and relatively affordable.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for straight hair - stay away!
I have long straight hair and use hair products almost everyday for volume, to reduce frizz, and to keep my ends smooth and hydrated. This mousse claims to add "fullness, reduces frizz, moisturizes, softens, volumes, light hold, maintain style, smooths, nourishes, add shine." With this, I didn't combine this with any of my existing products. I blow dry my hair everyday and naturally my hair is straight, but I use a brush as I'm blow drying to give it some shape. The bottle didn't specify whether to apply the mousse on dry or wet hair, so I distributed it on wet hair. While this mousse added fullness, a light hold, volume, and maintained styled, my hair looked absolutely awful the whole day. First off, the frizz was there and my baby hairs were raising the roof all day, so there was zero softening in my opinion. It doesn't add moisture, shine, or any type of nourishment - my hair felt awful and had this weird texture that made me cringe when I brushed my hair. It added volume to all the wrong places and made my head look enormous - obviously it was not easy to style. So this product only did half of its claims and in turn gave me a really bad hair day and I couldn't fix it unless I wash my hair again. I'm only giving this product 2 stars because I feel that those with wavy or curly hair would actually enjoy this. This product should not claim it's for all hair types - straight hair people stay away!

Love this mousse! You do need to use a cream under, but something lightweight will work. Excited to have this in my arsenal.
Eva NYC is the holy grail of hair products
Selena from Gaylord, MI
I love, love, love all of Eva NYC's hair products! I wanted to try this to add volume at my roots and hold my waves. While it does an excellent job at adding volume, it leaves a little to be desired in the wave holding area. I think it's better suited for more tightly wound curls, whereas I just have a slight wave to my hair.

Used the Orange Marmalade flaxseed gel then followed up with the mousse. It had great hold in the HOT FL HUMID weather.

pestilence19 from Tennessee
i wish it had a little bit more hold, but it works incredibly well for my thick curls in the humidity of the south.
ok but surprisingly greasy results
midcurl from MN
I have fine curls with medium density ranging from 2b-3b, with most of my texture being 2c/3a. I love in Northern Minnesota so was looking for a glycerin-free cast-making product for our cold, dry winter air. Initially I used this with the Rock-A-Wave styling cream. Regardless of how much I used, hair would look great for a few hours after diffusing but then fall flat & start looking greasy thought the day. I sleep in a satin bonnet on satin pillow cases & when I would let my hair down in the morning, it would look so stringy & flat & greasy I had to fight the urge to wash it again since I had only just washed it the day before. Since returning the wave cream, I've now tried this with a cream that I know gives me great definition without looking greasy, but still I had to work really hard to be able to wear my hair down even on day 2. It's better than the Rock-A-Wave but still not good for me. This will be getting returned. Smells excellent though. the whole line does!
I've been using this about a year.

This is a great product works well on brassy hair.
It's such an amazing product!

Love this product!
Bre from New york
I typically don't use mousse for my hair. I usually use thicker products for by hair so I think that's also the reason why I didn't think it was amazing. The smell was OK as well. After using it my hair feels a little bit more moisturized but not as much as I'm used to with other styling products I've used. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Bre from New york
I use this product just as a moisturizer. I have extremely kinky and dry hair. Usually the products that I use and that my hair likes are thicker And have a more creamier consistency. I think this product was just too watery and not necessarily for my hair type. It does smell great though and it's very easy to apply throughout my hair.
Not for me!
Ali from Texas
I usually don't use any mousse in my hair, so it's not necessarily this product, but just it doesn't work well with me hair. The smell was great, and I used it on my boyfriend's hair, and it stayed all day.
Bre from Hershey, PA
First of all, I was so excited for this product to arrive! It was so easy to apply and smelled great buuut... My super fine, thin, hair was left a little crunchy. I don't want to say 90s style crunchy but crunchy enough I'm not sure I want to try it for a third time. I may come back and update my review after a few more attempts!
I'm sure it's a great product, but it's not for me
Kelsey from Vinton, LA
I used the product as described. Unfortunately I didn't find a difference from when I don't use any product. I also found it made my hair greasy quicker than normal.
Not my favorite
Izzy from Las Vegas
I received a sample bottle complimentary for reviewing purposes! (Receiving this for free does not affect my opinion)
Quite frankly I was not impressed with this mousse! It says it's a styling gel with light hold that maintains style but It didn't hold any style for me! I put my hair in a pony tail and tried to use this mouse to hold back my baby hairs but they floated right back up so I had to use hairspray.
(Although my man used this and it held back his short hair.. even though we have the same hair type?)
I've tried a few times with this mouse but it really doesn't hold hairs in place for me.
smells amazing though lol!
Wouldn't suggest honestly
Product worked great.
Hanna from Kalamazoo,MI
This added volume to my ever straight hair and helped maintain some of my frizz. It did leave my hair a bit sticky, but overall great product.
I would but it again
mvasquez from Arkansas
This product felt nice on my hair. I did have to use a lot since my hair is long. The price is also reasonable.
Received it free for testing purposes.
Helped create lasting curls without the crunch!
Jen from Chicago, IL
Enjoyed trying the EVA NYC Mane Magic 10-in-1 Mousse! My hair is super straight and fine, so I tried out using a curling iron for the first time! Used this mousse after showering/before curling and it helped create beautiful curls that lasted without any crunch! And it helped make my hair look fuller. :) This one came in a cute travel size, so it's easy to take on the go! *I received this product complimentary for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own.
No such thing as "for all hairtypes"
LALA from BOSTON
Listen, I'm sure this works for some bigger curl hair types like my 3a's or for straighter hair types. However, for me and my 4C here this is not the product. I was hoping that I would leave my hair feeling moisturized, but it did not. It's just not for my hair and there is no such thing as for all here types. I will say though it smells really nice and the foam product that comes out of the container is cool. I received this product complimentary for review purposes. I received this complimentary for review.
I would buy this product

I haven't used mousse actively in years because the finish is never appealing or to my satisfaction. I put this Magic Mousse on my braids after a trip to the Bahamas 🇧🇸 and they look fresh and revived. I received this product free for testing purposes.
Dbkhakr from New York ny
This was a game changer to add to my minimalist hair routine. It helped target most of my problems - frizz, flyaways and styling in general! Would highly recommend
Good Styling Product
Hannah from Wichita, KS
You disperse the product in your hair and work into your hair, then style as usual!
I'd buy it
Jade from Champaign il
Good mousse with a good hold. I don't like products that make my hair feel sticky or dirty. I'm satisfied with this
This smells sooo good
Clover Marie from Dallas tx
Let me start by saying I received this product free for testing purposes. I like this product a lot. It is best used when my hair is more wet than dry...it definitely helps add a bit of definition to my curls without hair getting to crunchy.
