High time when I started caring for my curly locks. I have spent a lot of time just neglecting my curls and thinking and believing that one day I would straighten them permanently and have any rebonding or smoothening process to enjoy those straight tresses which I know most curlies want :). Now I love my curls and at those times, when I want to feel different, I just go for a straightening iron – My beloved Remington S5500 which works wonders and in minimal time :).
So, when I started to take care of my curls and wanted them to settle down a little instead of flying all over, the first product I tried to keep them in place is mousse. Since I heard some good things about Wella mousse, I thought of giving this one a try.
Lets see how it fared!!

My Take on it
Texture wise, it is white and foamy. You need to shake the bottle well, then pump it onto your palm, rub your hands together and just smoothen it all over your hair.
It is a good mousse. Provides good hold with making my hair not so crunchy if not overdone. The more you apply, the more crunchier it gets. I have curly hair and I purchased it to get some relief from frizz and puff. And yes, I have got some respite from both. Lesser frizz, lesser puff. I am using it daily and loving it. It enhances my curls and holds their shape well. It boosts the energy of my curls with good definition. I throw my hair forward and apply a good amount of it through my waist length hair and then let them dry on their own, naturally. It gives good result.
- Provides great hold.
- Enhances curls.
- Boosts volume of the hair.
- Doesn’t weigh my hair down.
- Doesn’t make hair crunchy when right amount is applied.
- A little bit pricey.
- Eliminates the frizz to a great extent but not completely but then, which product does!!
All in all, I like this product from Wella and would repurchase it for my curls till I find something better.
I found it quite good and there is no reason why I would not purchase it again. But then, I am bored 😉
There are so many products in market to hold curls in place and maintain them that I would try some other. In fact, I am trying a great alcohol and paraben free gel these days and would soon review it for my lovely curlies 🙂
