If you would have told us a few years ago we’d be drenching our tresses in white frothy mousse we would have called you crazy. But for the past two years, mousse has steadily gained steam and has slowly redeemed itself from the crunchy curly kinks of yesteryear. Long gone are the heavy formulas that left your strands so stiff they could cut glass–the new formulas are weightless, cater to different hair types and even add color and shine. From texturizing mousse to air dry formulas to color depositing confections, here are our top five mousses that give you all the style and none of the crunch.
Looking for a natural way to add volume to your strands? AG Hair CLOUD air light volumizing mousse is formulated with 98%+ plant-based and naturally-derived ingredients that add instant volume and texture while preventing frizz and adding shine.
