I live how it holds, keeps my curly hair a little stiff, and it smells great!
It definitely does the job I want it to do!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me or my curls
This was the first product I've tried by Kenra that I did not like. I used only the smallest amount on my hair and it made my locks crunchy and heavy like I had used old school gel from the 80s. The hair on the top of my head felt like I went crazy with a can of dry shampoo and it looked like I had dandruff. Needless to say I'll not be repurchasing this particular styling product again. I did however purchase the cream so we shall see if that product gets along with my finicky tresses.
Thank you Ulta for having such a wonderful return policy. I ordered online and returned in store no questions asked!

Your hair need to be absolutely soaking wet for this product to do it's job. It's not as heavy as a gel so it perfectly styled my my curls without weighing them down!
No, no, no, no, NOPE
Manda from Albertville, Al
This left my hair sticky and stiff. Forget having next day curls, I had to wash my hair. It just isn't for me. Glaze in the name is accurate. That's what it feels like.
There's a reason this is always out of stock!
Elly from Tennessee
Love love love! I was intrigued by this because it always seemed to be out of stock, so I knew people had to really like this. I finally got to purchase it a few weeks ago, and it's true- it really is a great product. Holds my curls without being sticky or stiff and really helps me have popping curls for multiple days. When it's back in stock I'll load up so I don't have to go without this :D
I definitely will repurchase this product
Pat from Kentucky
Smells good, holds set, couldn't do with out its help!
A New Leaf from SW Florida
I was hesitant to try this product based on the experience of some of the reviewers, but I am glad I did try it. I am very happy with the results. I have fine curly hair shoulder length and the product enhances my natural curl very nicely, gives my hair a noticeable shine and smoothness, even in the humidity of SW Florida. I found no problem with it weighing down my curls. The product initially has a foam consistency (as you would expect with a mousse) but as you emulsify it in your hands, it turns clear. It's slightly sticky but gel like and easy to apply to the hair. I will definitely continue purchasing this product for my hair.
Finally something that works!
TS from Greer
Finally a product that works as well for me as Joicos Joi Whip mousse that they discontinued. This Kenta mousse just has a clean slightly citrus scent but more importantly it works with my thick course curly hair to actually leave it curly but it doesn't feel like glue like most products out there. It actually held me hair all day as well. I had used the Joico mousse for years and had to go through several other products and return them to find anything even close to the same.
What is that smell?!!!
akaPollyP from Fairfield CA
This, hands down, is the most disgusting smelling hair product I have ever used. Would totally take it back if I hadn't tossed the lid and receipt. Cannot honestly say it works well or not, I seriously could not get past the smell.
Great results. Hair felt horrible to touch
KMM from Taunton, MA
I typically use the Kenra curl defining cream which I LOVE. The store happened to be sold out of it so decided to try this curl glaze mouse. I read the reviews before using and they were very mixed. I my hair is on the thinner side so I do not require much product. I used about 2 pumps worth and it was plenty. It is extremely stiff until you scrunch the crunch and then it looked great! Great curl hold and a ton of shine! It seemed to have a stronger hold than the curl cream but by the end of the day I could not stand how my hair felt. It felt so dry and stiff that I had to wash it to get the product out. If I use the product again I will not use it on my wash day because I will need to rewash the next day.
This is not your typical mousse
KP from Philadelphia
This mousse behaves far more like a gel. I cannot stress this enough. I was recommended this product by a friend who was recommended by a hairdresser. So far, I've tried it with partially towel dried hair, "plopped" hair, and very wet hair. This product works best on wet hair, period. Any sort of drying, even just plopping, can alter the results. I can imagine this would still work for some people, but ideally, you will want to scrunch this into wet hair. My best results so far paired with a leave in conditioner, a styling cream, and a gel (a very hydrating gel). I am excited to try with other combinations and without the other gel, too. There's so many possibilities, and aside from the learning curve, it's a great product that smells fantastic and has GREAT hold. The key to success is proper hydration and pairing, which is what you could say about any product, really. I almost want to deduct a star for the learning curve but it's a great "mousse" and I owe it to exploring its full potential before dinging a star off.
Smooths Frizz & Adds Shine
MishyMash from Bellevue, WA
Unlike the other reviewers, I am extremely impressed with this product. Although it dispenses like a mousse, on the hair is has a consistency of a balm, so very little product is required. At application, it is slightly sticky on the hair. While air-drying, my waves behaved with no frizziness or flyaways, but my hair felt a little stiff. To my great surprise, a little scrunching removed any stiffness, leaving only perfectly tame and soft waves. My hair was soft and super shiny. I use a dime-size dollap on the ends of next-day hair and I am good to leave the house. To put things in perspective, this is the only product that my hair needs when air-drying - one product instead of four to five! My only nit? Hate the spicy scent, but I love what is does for my hair even more. Yes, I'll be re-purchasing.
Love this product
Deb from Roseville, Ca
Works best for me when hair is really wet and not towel dried.
crunchy, no definition
AshleyMarie from White Lake MI
This left my hair super hard and crunchy and did absolutely nothing to enhance my waves. I have fine 2A-2B type hair and this came highly recommended from an employee at Ulta. Very disappointed and will be coming back today to return.
Missy from Ky
I use this to help define and hold my curls. It works great and isn't heavy. Just remember to scrunch the crunch! Lol!!
Great gel mousse!
Honeypooh from E. Wenatchee, WA
I use this on my curly hair, & love it! It comes out as a mousse, but turns to gel as you rub your hands together. It makes your curly hair bounce, & lasts a couple of days! Great Kenra product!
I would not buy this product again
Kathy from VA
I have naturally curly hair and was looking for a little more curl control. I found the product to be very heavy and sticky. I would not purchase this product again.
Nice curl glaze
SarahK814 from Sterling Heights, MI
I have been using this curl glaze for about 2 weeks now. I love how it fights frizz during these humid months, and how nice my curls look on day 1. But day 2 hair isn't quite the same with this product. The crunchiness breaks up by day 2 and the frizz is back just a little bit at that point. It's not terrible, just not a perfect product.
Deb from Roseville, California
Great for curly hair. Just have to find the correct amount to disburse throughout your type of curls. Love this product!

Works ok but sticky
Marissam from Wisconsin
This product makes my waves/curls look ok but not great. They're a bit weighed down looking. I wonder if this would be better in more humid summer weather. But I really dislike the consistency. Super sticky and gummy feeling. Just felt gross applying. Maybe it needs to be applied to really wet hair instead of damp hair? I'll probably return this.
Janiceann from Tennessee
I ordered this mousse to compare with the curl cream. I actually like both of them. Smells good, a little bit goes a long way, but I have short hair. I will probably purchase again.
Absolute waste of money
Jennifer from Alabama
I thought that this would be what it implied and add some shine to my curls, but instead the product is a gooey, sticky mess that left my hair feeling crispy (which I hate).This "glaze" is more like glue! =(
I will be returning this product ASAP for a refund. Normally I would just cut my losses and toss it, but this one cost too much to do that. I was very disappointed. I wanted to give zero stars, but it requires you give 1.
I actually love it!
Natalie from Aberdeen, MD
So, I could go both ways with this product. The first time I used it, I was blown away at how my curls/waves held and the volume it gave me. I'm a little skeptical about the sticky consistency of this product for my lightweight/thin waves. I find that I use this product in sections, diffuse upside down, and then scrunch the "crunch" out to reveal big, perfect, curly hair after the majority of my hair is dry. There is a process of "scrunching the crunch" that not everyone knows about. Try scrunching the product after it dries and it'll dissipate. For now, I'll keep it using it!
I would purchase again
Lyn from Jefferson City MO
Awesome stuff for poodle curly hair!
My go-to mousse
Lindsay from Ohio
I love this mousse. I have used tons of different brands, but this is my #1. It doesn't make your hair crunchy, but keeps the curls perfect and keeps your curls from frizzing out.
