***MY FIRST THOUGHTS/ EXPERIENCE OF AUSSIE PRODUCTS***
I remember seeing the Aussie range in boots available to buy a few years ago but it didn't really appeal to me and I think it's due to the fact that the packaging looks very simple and boring which makes me think it isn't a very good, quality product. It wasn't until last year when my friend put high-lights in my hair and used the leave in conditioner in my hair that I thought differently of the products. The products then seemed to grab my attention when it left my hair feeling smooth, soft and conditioned and the product smelt great too. She has also used a different leave in conditioner in my hair for colour-treated hair which also left my hair feeling soft, smooth and healthy looking. I was tempted to give some of the products a try in this range so next morning off I went to Boots!
***AUSSOME VOLUME & CONDITIONING MOUSSE***
I have used Aussie Leave in Conditioner before and thought the results were amazing so I thought I would try this product. After trying lots of other branded products to try and get some volume into my hair and not succeeding I thought I may as well give this a go. The mousse comes in a simple white can with purple and green writing. The volumizing range is written in green writing to it's easier to find when looking for it on the shelf. On the back of the can it gives you directions and some information about the mousse.
The mousse contains Australian Wild Cherry Bark Extract and gives hair big ideas about volume and long lasting love on each individual strand. It also states that this mousse won't leave your hair with that sticky or crunchy feeling like some other mousses. The mousse also brushes out easily and gives flexible hold.
This is available to buy from Boots and Superdrug and prices do vary. I went to buy this in Boots which would have cost me £4.00 for a 150ml can. How-ever I went into Superdrug and I could get any 2 of the Aussie products for £6.00 which I thought was a bit of a bargain so I also got the Aussome Volume & Gloss Hairspray as well. This offer is probably only on for a limited period so stock up whilst the offer is on! These products are also available to buy at some supermarkets and you might also find them in shops such as Wilkinsons and Savers as well.
***BENEFITS OF WILD CHERRY BARK***
Wild Cherry Bark is used in many health products and is ingredients in some remedies as well. It also helps to make hair feel bouncy and look shiny. Not only this, but it smells lovely too. After doing some research on the internet I can't find any other hair products which have this ingredient in them, so this makes it quite unique for Aussie.
***USING THE MOUSSE***
Simply dispense some into your hands and rub them together. Then simply work evenly through damp hair and style as normal. They also recommend that you can blow-dry with a diffuser for better volume.
I shook the can up and sprayed a nice amount into the palm of my hand. I then rubbed my hands together slightly and then ran my hands through my hair ensuring I try to cover all the hair lengths and the roots. After doing this I did apply a little more but not too much. The mousse dispensed easily and it smelt very nice. It smelt quite sweet and the smell reminded me of being in a hair salon.
I dried my hair using a round brush and hair-dryer as normal until it was completely dry. I then tipped my head upside down and gave it a blast with the cool shot on the dryer. After re-arranging my hair slightly it looked lovely and shiny and it also had a lot more volume than it did before using this mousse. My hair felt soft and conditioned and felt bouncy.
The mousse didn't leave any residue or stiff feeling in my hair and it didn't leave my hands sticky when applying the mousse through my hair either. I was very pleased with the results. To finish my style I used the Aussome Volume & Gloss Spray. This helped to keep my hair looking big and bouncy and also added some more shine to it as well.
When styling my hair the next day, it didn't feel greasy and it still felt soft and looked nice ad bouncy. I simply styled my hair as normal and again before leaving the house I used the Volume & Gloss Spray to make my hair look big and bouncy again.

This is the best volumizing hair product I have tried in a long time and I thought the results were fantastic. The mousse left my hair with volume, shine and it felt and looked smooth and soft too. My hair smelt great when I used the mousse and it even smelt great the day after too. After using this product I would definitely be very tempted to give their other products in this range a try. If you are looking for something to pump you hair up a bit and get a glam look for a night out on the town I would highly recommend this product. I will definitely be buying this again!
