Most Helpful Positive Review Best hair product I have ever tried my whole life
I have literally tried every single product on the market having the most unmanageable frizzy and semi dry hair. I had used Tigi Curls Rock for over 12 years as a hold and style product, but after a while it started to lose its use and wasn't working as well. Then I saw this product used by an Instagram curly hair influencer who swears by it as her curls are amaaaazing. So after I while I gave it a go after previously trying Curlsmith (bought the whole range) and a few other brands I picked up whilst on visit to the states. (Live in the UK)...So I gave this product a try and OMG all I have to say is the day I used it I got so many compliments. Everyone who knows me asked what have I done to my hair it looks amazing. So I told them its a new product I am trying. So far so good and it works best on its own. I tried putting in a leave in conditioner and other similar products beforehand but that never works. I would advise to use on its own as it has its own moisturiser. Its super easy to use, dries nicely, works amazingly diffused, the curls pop!!!..and it lasts ages, doesn't expand with humidity, no flakyness, smells great without being overpowering, just fab!!!!...
Most Helpful Critical Review Doesn't Prevent Frizz
I have fine 3B Curly Hair. If you have hair that needs strong hold or you need to prevent frizz, this is not the product for you. I normally use Deva Curl gel which gives me a strong enough hold to prevent frizz. I will not purchase this product again. I got a small bottle in my Ulta Texture Kit. I will be giving this product away to a friend in the future since it did not work in my hair. The one good thing about this product is that is smells amazing like candy and this product is light and clean in the hair.

My husband uses this product. This one is his favorite and he has tried many others
It smells great!
New favorite product
A from SC
This product is AWESOME! I am usually not a fan of any sort of mousse products because they usually make me curly hair feel crunchy, but this mousse is amazing. I use this and the curling jelly from this same brand and together my curls look better than ever!
B from Washington
This is replacing two hair products of mine! Hydrates and holds my curls while remaining soft, not crispy. I love the scent!
One of my go to products for over a year
E the gardener from Denver, CO
I found this product listed as one of the top styling mousses for curly hair. I have fine, curly hair (loose curls) and this product allows my hair to air dry quickly and provides stay put curl for several days! I always make sure I have this on hand.
Pretty Good but the SMELL!
Ems from Louisiana
This stuff works pretty well. It's not sticky and it's not crunchy when it dries. I have frizzy, wavy hair that is REALLY coarse and dry. It makes my hair really pretty and natural-looking. The only issue I have with it is the smell. I don't know if any of you had to drink that pink antibiotic liquid when you were a kid when you got sick but this mousse smells EXACTLY like that stuff. It throws me off so bad. Other than that it's great!
Paired with honey custard curling cream
Product Junkiedl from LA
Curls are defined. Hair is shiny and soft. I paired this mouse with the honey custard curling cream. Very happy with the results
Best stuff ever
Waygirl from Richmond KY
My hair dresser suggested this for my hair. I am Caucasian with gray wiry, frizzy, curly thick hair. This smells amazing and does a great job.

Went from "oh that smells good"
To "omg can't go without it"
Light hydration and definition. Versatile and layerable with other curl products
Smell is out of this world
Tara from New York
This product is amazing! I have 3b/3c hair but extremely thick! I used this and didn't even section my hair and my hair came out amazing! I usually mix products but I used only this on my hair and it worked great. My curls were extremely defined and were very soft. They had a nice bounce and I feel like my curls just moved around so freely. Not to add it smells great!
Good styling mousse
Flygirl83 from Philly
I actually liked this product. I have about 4a/b hair and i used a couple pumps and applied it all over my hair while it was wet. Then used oil and the curl gel and twist it in rows. The first time i applied it heavily to each small section of my hair and the next day my hair felt it super dry. I actually think less is better with this product.
Nikki from Chicago, Illinois
This is the only mousse I've ever used that doesn't leave my hair crunchy and tangled. It has a beautiful smell as well!
KJ from Chicago
Best mousse I've found to really enhance my curls! Buy and try, you'll love it!
SSmith2022 from Illinois
I used this foam to roller set my hair. It has a light scent. I did not have to use much product and my curls were gorgeous after drying. I did not have frizz and there was a nice hold to it. My hair was not hard at all. My curls also held in place after adding a small amount of oil sheen as well. Very nice.
Liv from Miami
Section hair and lather with this mousse. Smells great and defines and tamed frizz all day!
Tiara G from Massachusetts
So I tried this product by itself it didn't do anything for me. I tried it with the Gel custard and my hair wasn't feeling it. I tried it with the leave in conditioner and OMG we have a winner those two together is like peanut butter and jelly lol. I have a mixture of type 3 and type 4 hair. I wet my hair added the leave in conditioner and added the mousse together; used the detangler brush and finger curl my hair little by little. OMG game changer
Water Soluble silicone. Ok for curls.
Curly Since 77 from Wallingford, PA
In the world of curly girls and guys there are certain things that we need to avoid. Sulfates & silicones are high on this list for me. While I was worried at first about the ingredients, upon further research, I learned that the silicone in this product is water soluble. "cetrimonium dimethicone peg-8 olivatesuccinate
peg-12 dimethicone" are water soluble!
Steph from Ridgway pa
This does nothing but smell good. Smells like sweet limes or something.
Contains Silicone - curly girls beware
Margaret from Boston, MA
This product is not for those who follow the curly girl method. It contains dimethicone which is a form of silicone. Silicone is very damaging to curls. I used it before I read the ingredients. My mistake. If you don't care about using silicone, it's actually a great product. It made my hair bouncy, And gave my girls life. However, This product will not work for me long-term.
Ahhhhhmazing curl definition!
Curlygurl4lyfe from Clearwater, FL
I've been following CGM loosely for years, and I still have trouble finding the right mix of products for my hair. My usual routine is leave in soaking wet hair, microfiber plop for drying and then curl cream and then gel and it was hit or miss 50% of the time.
Then I found Ouidad's curl defining mousse, and my hair flipping loved it. So then I researched cheaper dupes for it and Design Essentials came up. I took the leap and for around 10 bucks cheaper I'm so happy with it! The texture is very light and foamy with a lotta slip it feels like a conditioning mousse. The scent isn't super strong or overpowering and has a really light sweet smell which I can appreciate since I like perfumes.
All in so happy with this stuff that I had to jump on and review immediately!

Best Mousse for Curls
MissNY from North Miami Beach
This mousse is godsent for the curly haired!!! It helps define the curls without weighing down the hair and provides shine!
A great buy!
Maggie from Bronx, NY
Great for natural curl styles without the crunch. Smell is pleasant, not overpowering.
This mousse is great for curly girls
Lmm83 from Yukon, OK
I love this mousse. It is curly girl friendly. It smells great. The bottle lasts a long time. I apply to damp hair and scrunch in with a cotton t-shirt, then blow dry with a diffuser attachment. I then use Pantene Airspray (alcohol free) to set the style. I like that it is lightweight and provides my hair with volume. I was previously using gel and wasn't happy with the lack of volume and crunchy look.
