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..
