Who doesn’t like hair that screams volume and shine? Everyone does, right! While grandma home remedies work wonders, honestly the tick-tock on the clock doesn’t allow us to make those natural recipes at home. That’s where Hair Mousse comes to our rescue. It gives your mane that extra shine and volume like “just washed hair”.
It is a cool product for both the genders, especially those with hair thinning problem and yearning volume boost. It is better than those hair sprays, creams and pomades which are accused guilty of being too crunchy and heavy in texture. Mark Townsend, who tends to hair troubles of Jennifer Lawrence and Michelle Williams, swears by the new technology mousse products that tame, emphasize and define your hair.
If you want to know the best ways to use it, look no further. We have compiled the best TO-Dos for you to master this art of applying mousse. Relieved? Great! Now read on…
TO-DO no. 1: Trick to know is when to apply mousse once you done washing or wetting your hair. It should not be dripping or sopping wet. Once your hair is about 40% dry (just an intuitive decision, not to worry about the exactness of percentage) squirt an amount about the size of golf ball into the palm and rub them together like a lotion. Shake well before use to agitate the foam/spray inside the can.
TO-DO no. 2: Flip your head down and scrunch the hair strands by making fist of your palm. Successful scrunching involves taking the ends and bringing them to the forehead hairline with intermittent gentle ‘squeezing’ movements. Trust me; it’s easier than it sounds.
TO-DO no. 3: If you have time at your hand, you can even section your hair neatly and gently rub the mousse across the roots, working from nape of the neck towards top of the head. Spread the mousse evenly over the root area with your fingers. Run a wide toothed comb or gentle brush to distribute the mousse. Even and rich application ensures those voluminous curls or straight hair sheen.
TO-DO no. 4: Let your hair dry the natural way once you are done with the application. For quick drying, use a clean dry towel and gently scrunch your way through the hair. Mousse will stiffen the hair a bit but is hardly visible when it dries. Voila!
TO-DO no. 5: Blow-dry your hair thoroughly from the roots for that great ‘lift’ to your hair and to style them as you wish. Alternately, you can also air dry them for that easy wet shine look. Now that you have your voluminous hair, style them in twists, updos or play with curly or wavy hair. Finish it off with hair spray for that long term effect without flyaway or unruly hair.
Tip to Remember: Mousse can be your very own hair product bliss if used correctly. Try and not overload it or it will end up going stiff.
Mousse has been used to create runway magic looks whether they are elegant updos at Carolina Herrera, braids at Mischka or relaxed textured waves at Vera Wang. Mousse works best for hair styles that have some natural movement and lift. Try from a range of products available in the market. Hair experts suggest Kerastase, Schwarzkopf, Bed Head by TIGI, Percy & Reed, Bumble & Bumble, Davines, Dove Nourishing Mousse, for that voluminous shine. Feeling yummy is now just a mousse away
