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.

I got a free mini size of this when I purchased a full size of the new voumizing and texturing spray (which I love). First, the good. Yes, it makes my hair look thicker and it gives it volume. Lots of it. But I had the same bad experience as many other reviewers: it made my freshly shampooed hair feel gummy to the touch. It felt as if I had sprayed dry shampoo on my wet hair and then blow dried it. Weird. And it also made it harder and longer to style. I hate to think what my hair will look like when I wake up tomorrow. Yikes.
So the question is does the good (lots of volumuminous, thicker hair) override the bad (gummy, heavy hair, unpleasant to the touch)? The answer is ... no. Glad I got a mini. I'll go back to L'Oreal's Boost It Volume Inject Mousse. It does a much better job for a fraction of the price.

I have long hair that can look too flat at times. I tried this mousse hoping for some more body. While I think it did that, it made it so hard to dry, sticky and hard to brush through. It felt knotty even running my fingers through my hair. I'm not a fan.

I tried this product on my roots when my hair was wet. Blow dried my hair completely and what a difference. I had volume and lift. It lasted for 3 days. I followed up with Living Proof dry shampoo to keep my hair clean. Love this product!
Love this product

Smelling real nice

I like how this product Full Dry Volume and Texture Spray to keep my hair looking good.
For genuinely baby fine hair, this works... BUT
asnetall from Santa Fe, New Mexico
For Baby Fine Hair People: This works! It's the only product I've found that actually makes my genuinely baby fine hair look thicker and appear to have some body. The effect lasts all day and onto the next if you decide not to wash your hair every day. I use it sparingly and blow dry carefully though, because it does make your hair a little stickier before it's dried. That can cause baby fine hair to break when combing. So use it, be very gentle when combing or brushing, and enjoy. This product works better for my baby fine hair than the Living Proof Full Thickening Cream. I found that product to be too greasy and it weighs my baby fines down. I wrote a long review about the LP Thickening Cream and dealing with baby fine hair in case that's helpful to anyone. My one complaint about LP products, or any in general, is fragrance. I'm picky about scents and would never wear this scent as a perfume, so why would I want it anywhere on my body? I wish all these products had a fragrance-free version.

I received this for free from Pinchme in exchange for an honest review. This works great for my wavy hair. It smells good. Living Proof has the best products. I highly recommend them.
Works great, not so of a great smell
Chas from Screven,Ga
I received this product complements of pinchme.com. This product worked great to add body and fullness to my curly hair, but the smell was not one that I was fond of...
Cynthia from Detroit michigan

Been using this product for some time now and it's great for my hair. I have thick hair with curls and it gives this bounce to it! Must try
Works great for my thin curly hair
Ruji from Jersey City, NJ
I like that it provides some volume along with classic mousse job that is to define the curls. I also love how the mousse comes out in a controlled way.
Eileen from San Jose Ca

Finally a mousse I like
ARain from Ware, MA
I received the Living Proof full thickening mousse free for review from PINCHme and I've honestly really enjoyed this product.
This mousse is said to boost volume while holding your style and I would definitely agree with that claim.
Its lightweight and smells quite nice. It's not a super airy mousse but it's not super dense either. It doesn't evaporate right away but it's not heavy or sticky at all. I have pretty long hair so instead of the standard egg size I typically use maybe two egg size dallops. It has been way too hot and humid here lately to do much with my hair, and while the directions say to blow-dry, I just can't. I apply it to my damp hair right after my shower and then I tie it up in a bun. When it's fully dry and I let it down, it's so full of volume and the texture is lovely. The waves are beautiful and they do hold all day. Many products of this type cause my hair to get frizzy and almost static like but this one doesn't do that. I get no flyaways or frizz with this mousse and my hair smells so great. It's a nice, light clean smell, very subtle. I've really enjoyed using this product and I would definitely recommend it. Oh, and I like the packaging as well. The button you press to dispense the mousse is a nice solid button. For those of us that have hands and fingers that might not work so well, I had no issues.
does just like it says
beck from indiana
I have used this mousse for over a year and have never been disappointed by it. it does exactly as it says...thickens fine hair while still leaving it soft
Definitely will be a repeat customer on this product!
amomfrombuffalo from Buffalo, NY
I absolutely love this product! This mousse is lightweight with a pleasant smell and gives my hair incredible volume and hair. My hair looks thicker and stays styled all day. I've used it to just hold a straight style and well as curls. I love it!!
I will buy this again!
Scampers from Encino
I am a new fan of Living proof full thickening mousse! My hair is generally wavy , but often flat and no bounce to it. An egg shaped handful of mousse did the trick for bounce, thickness, shine and the perfect hair day. So easy to use, just smooth through damp hair, blow dry and go. My hair felt soft, not crinkly, and smelled really good. It lasted all day and even into the next day. So glad I found it!
Extremely Happy Sampler
Beth51 from Lansing mi
I use the mousse in my hair still wet after I get out of shower... you can style with curlers, flat iron, air dry, and blow dry...
Very good product
Khosh from Concord, CA
This product really worked on my hair. After use I realized mor thickness on my hair. The smell is much better than other products I used.
Not good for fine hair
Jensaul from Jacksonville Florida
I was given this product for free from PINCHme in exchange for my honest opinion of this product. I have fine, wavy long hair so I thought this would give my hair a little boost. I used exactly as directed but instead of my hair looking fuller it looked weighed down & oily. It did make my hair shiney and it smelled kind of sweet . but it's just not for my type of hair. But I think it would be great for thicker hair.
Not for thick hair
Dana from Avondale, Arizona
I have long thick/ wavy color treated hair and when I put the product on damp hair it felt great until my hair dried.
It felt as if I put gel in my hair and dried hard however it didn't last. I don't think I'll be using this product again given that I already have thick hair but what was nice is it didn't leave any product residue like gel or mouse products tend to do.
Stephanie from Goshen, IN
Another great living proof product. Smells good. Gives good volume without feeling yucky. I have fine hair and it works well. Easy to use, I just put a small amount in wet hair then blow dry.
Perfect! I won't use any other kind!!!
happymother79 from Gadsden, AL
This is by far the best mousse! It leaves my hair velumptuous and full and so soft!!!
It's okay but.
Meli from Miramar,Fl
I received this product as a free sample. Opinion is all my own. The mousse left my hair feeling light but I did not like the texture. It was sticky for me. I don't think I would use this again.
Love this product
Jennie from Ga
I just threw it in the night before a date on damp hair then twisted my hair for over night curls, and it worked great big thick curls that stayed all day.
