Today I am tackling the question, how to use hair mousse? I haven’t touched hair mousse since I was a teenager, back in the day when hair mousse made your curled hair a mixture of crunchy and sticky but long lasting.
I know that hair styling has come a long way since then and that some of the latest hair mousse products are actually peoples hair volume secret weapon. This week I tried the Osmo Cosmetics extreme volume mega styling foam to see what hair mousse could do for me.
How to use hair mousse –
Start with damp hair and apply the mousse in sections. Distribute generous amounts with a focus on your roots. Comb or brush through the length of your hair and then blow dry in sections with a large round barrel brush. Aim the brush and hair dryer above the head to create more volume.
I used the Osmo Cosmetics extreme volume mega styling foam and it did create a little volume but I did use a large amount of mousse.
I had a bit more texture to my hair, it was a little more bouncy and with no residue. My hair is very long but it gave my hair a little hold and volume in the roots so my hair didn’t look flat.
The only downside whas that I would need to use a serum on the ends of my hair as the Osmo mousse made them coarse and flyaway which I hadn’t expected.
When and how to use hair mousse –
Hair mousse can be used to create volume, texture and definition as I have done here. It offers a weightless hold and gives grip to your hair so is perfect for also styling an updo or sealing your curls. I know many with naturally curly hair use mousse to give a frizz free hold too.
