I love volumising hair mousse, spray mousse and well, anything that gives my limp hair a bit of a boost and some lift. I walked past one of those new product stands in Boots about a month ago and saw the new John Frieda Full Repair range. The range is based on the added ingredient Inca Inchi Oil which they say revives overworked hair, repairing the look and feel of damage from frequent heat styling and colouring, without weighing hair down. Hair is instantly transformed into full-bodied style with natural movement.
Well it doesn't, in fact it made my hair limp, sticky (and this was with less than half the amount of mousse I normally use) and dull. The mousse is far too wet to be able to give any volume, I tried it every day for a week and tried to use it when hair was sopping wet, damp, nearly dry and every time it looked the same. Such a shame as there is definitely a gap in the market for a fabulous low cost volumising mousse for limp hair that doesn't weigh it down.
If you want a fab mousse that really does give volume all of the below mousses are tried and tested and get 9-10/10 from me:
L'oreal TecNi Art Spray Mousse
Tigi Bed Head Spray Mousse - Queen For A Day
Tigi Candy Fixations Totally Baked Mousse
