      Comments about Rusk Smooth Foam:

      I love Rusk products when you can get them out of the container. In the last couple months I have had to return two items because the containers failed. This time I got one use and then no more product!! When I returned the item the employee sighed and said this happens all the time. I was told the same thing when I had to return hairspray that stopped working after a couple uses. So Rusk works great and I love the smell... hate that it's a gamble on the container!

      Great product, faulty formula

      By Product Junkie

      from Colorado

      Comments about Rusk Smooth Foam:

      I got a sample of this that was perfect. I love it. Leaves my hair smooth and in gentle waves. I ordered a few of these when I was close to out of my sample, because I didn't want to run out. The full size bottles are a nightmare. The product doesn't pump the way it should, it gets clogged by little globs of gelatinous non-mousse.

      So darn frustrating.

      Will probably order again but thinking they must have had a bad batch. Ugh. Stuck with three of them.

          Comments about Rusk Smooth Foam:

          This is a great product for kinky textured hair wearers who don't want to get a texturizer to loosen their curl pattern.
          This product contains a low amount of sodium hydroxide so use caution if you are going to use other chemical treatments in the future after using this product.

                This, along with one other heat product of a different brand and dry shampoo, has COMPLETELY changed my hair routine for the better!! I only need to wash my hair 2-3 times a week and can simply blow it out on days I don't wash. It's fantastic! I LOVE this product!

                  Love this product. Bought based on a recommendation from Wendy Williams awesome stylist for thin, fine hair. Does what it says. Last through 5 shampoos and does cut down my drying time. My hair looks beautiful and its easy to style. Only one tiny flaw, feels a little sticky /gummy when first putting on. Other than that, worth every penny. Highly recommend.

                    Comments about Rusk Smooth Foam:

                    This product! I wish I could shake the hand of the chemist who formulated it! Job well done! I have been waiting for it since the keratin craze started. I have tried many things and thought I was a slave to salon keratin treatments UNTIL this.
                    It truly does what it says. It is lightweight and no greasy. I feel like I had a salon blowout after using. My hair feels so good & shiny.
                    I live in Florida and this as we know is the true test. I have thinner hair that succumbs to humidity the moment I walk outside. After using this, I am completely confident and it withstands the 100% humidity. This product is a game changer/money saver. I have no intention on getting another keratin treatment ever again because of this. My hairdresser will be so disappointed.

                    Comments about Rusk Smooth Foam:

                    I received a free sample of this product and it works very well in my thin blonde hair. I never would have thought to use this product as a thickening mousse, as I would never think to buy a straightening foam for my already straight hair. It gives my hair a lot of volume, however I do have to wash my hair daily when using this product. The next morning after using this product, my hair does feel dirtier than normal and dry shampoo would not fix the situation. The value of the volume this product creates outweighs the con of having to wash my hair daily.
