Hair mousse is so…2019?!
Don’t get me wrong I love having shorter hair, I just can’t be doing with it constantly getting in my face anymore or having to tie it up in skull spliting ponytail to get it out of the way, but I always feel like I need to style it to look ‘put-together’. As someone who has curlier hair it can get a little puffy and ‘bluerg’ if I don’t do anything with it, however I don’t want to be heat styling it everyday which is where this beauty of a product comes in because it makes my curls last for 3 days (sometimes more).
I have been using this for years and it’s always in my hair kit. This plus a curling tong can help turn even the flattest and straightest hair into a mass of curls that will stay all day, plus it’s not sticky or makes your hair stiff. You keep your natural texture, light and bouncy. All it takes is a golf ball size (if you’ve got longer hair you may need a little more) applied to towel dried hair from root to tip, I like to use my fingers but a wide toothed comb works just as well. Blow dry, flip your hair over for extra volume and then style.
With shorter hair I prefer to use a conical wand to style rather than heated rollers – which are my best friend with my longer hair. It means I can get a nice messy loose curl and don’t end up looking like Shirley Temple. I have the Babyliss one and have done for years because it’s affordable, has various temperatures and a super long lead as well as being incredibly effective. I always set mine on the lowest heat so it doesn’t damage my hair (plus the mousse heat protects) and it gives looser set curls. If you have hair that refuses to curl then crank up the heat and hold for longer. The mousse will help set it and keep it curled. I do add a little spritz of the hair spray but I don’t go crazy. The curls will stay until I next wash my locks.
