“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Hair Mousse „
Hair Mousse is not something I use on a daily basis but I always have some in the house for those occasions when I want to do something a bit glam with my hair. The mouse I've been using recently is Tesco own brand with maximum hold. It cost £1.02 for a 200ml can.
The Maximum hold Styling Mousse is sold in a metal container similar to a hairspray can, its mainly a bright blue colour with a clear blue plastic cap. The front of the can shows the Tesco logo and has the words Maximum Hold Mousse written down the can in bright pink and white letters. The front of the can also informs the customer that the mousse is enriched with Pro-vitamins B5 and UV absorbers and will help protect your hair against the damage caused by styling.
The back of the can gives all the usual information you would expect to find about this type of product including the directions for use, warnings and a small paragraph about the mousse, this is all written clearly and is easy to read should you wish to do so.
The mousse is despatched by pressing a wide nozzle on the top of the can, it looks much like any other mousse I have ever bought, white and foamy, and has a really lovely fresh smell.
As I mentioned I don't use mousse on a regular basis but when I do I use it on wet or dry hair. To use it on wet hair I towel dry my hair after washing and work a large handful of mousse through it, I then either dry it or leave it to dry naturally. I have long thick wavy hair and I do find if I've used mousse, however I do my hair, the style is always smoother, if I leave it wavy for a night out it tends to go a bit frizzy without mousse.
If I'm using the mousse on dry hair I follow the same procedure but just apply the mousse to my hair after I've dried and straightened it. If I am using the mousse on dry hair I will usually be putting my hair up, once again for a night out or a special occasions. I find the mouse makes my just washed hair easier to style and also my hair holds better without slipping. If I'm wearing a glitzy clip or comb in my hair I find these grip better if I've used mousse.
I have been pleased with the Tesco Maximum Hold Styling Mousse, It does the job its supposed to do and doesn't leave my hair sticky which is the case with some mousses I have used. Its easy to brush through my hair after I've used it and I don't notice any build up in my hair.
If you use mousse on your hair I would certainly recommend taking a look at this one, its reasonably priced and has the added bonus of offering protection to your hair.
