Using a hair mousse is the perfect way to define curls or hold a slick ponytail in place, so if you’re on the hunt for the best hair mousse then keep reading for our recommendations based on the look you want to achieve and your hair type.

How to use hair mousse for best results

  1. Use a volumising shampoo and conditioner to wash your hair.
  2. Dry your hair with a towel until it is damp and not dripping with excess water.
  3. Apply a palm-sized amount of hair mousse to your hands, starting less and applying more depending on the thickness of your hair.
  4. Concentrate on working the product into your roots.
  5. Once the hair mousse is distributed evenly, you can start blowdrying your hair. You can either use a barrel brush, or if you’re short of time, tilt your head upside down to really enforce some volume at the roots.

Which hair mousse is best for my hair type?

Whether you have curly hair, afro hair, straight hair, fine hair or coarse hair there is a hair mousse for you.

Curly Hair: Hair mousse can really help to define your killer curls. For bouncy, glossy curls apply your favourite hair mousse to damp hair and use your diffuser to blow dry.

Fine hair & Thin hair: If you have fine hair or thin hair, achieving volume can be a challenge without calling upon the right products. Hair mousse will help you to inject some volume into your fine hair, without weighing it down or causing it to look greasy.

Straight hair: Much like fine hair, straight hair also struggles to hold volume or any kind of style such as waves or curls. Hair mousse can really help here by adding some texture to poker-straight hair.

Coarse hair & Thick hair: Styling products can sometimes weigh hair down, however, a few pumps of hair mousse can help add texture and definition to thick hair without weighing it down or making it become greasy easily.
