“ Brand: Tresemme / Volume / Type: Hair Mousse „
With having long poker straight hair which is quite thick, it tends to hang rather lifelessly and was in the need of a good oomph!
On my quest for beautiful bouncy hair, I caught sight of Tresemme Colour Shine UV Filter Mousse. I'm sure I've not used mousse since the 1980's so was a little dubious of its claims to give long lasting volume and hold whilst protecting colour radiance.
Tresemme was originally created to be sold exclusively in top salons, however, they believed that everyone should have access to salon quality hair products, thus Tresemme can be found in many stores across the country. Products range from shampoo, conditoner and styling products, throught to electricals such as hair dryers and straighteners.
I bought this from B&M for a bargain £1.99 for a large 300ml can which offers great value, I've been using this on a regular basis for a few months now.
Its simple to use. Shake the can, hold upright and press the nozzle to dispense a golf ball sized glob of mousse and distribute evenly through hair.. I tend to go more for a tennis ball size due to the length of my hair. Mousse needs to be used on damp hair.
My best tip for creating volume is to concentrate some of the product at the roots, tip head upside down, and give a really hot strong blast directly to the roots before styling as required.
This mousse only gives extra body, it is not designed to give extra strength hold, so if it is extra control you require from your styling product I would suggest seeking an alternative.
After blowdrying using a large round brush, I did find that my hair was quite bouncy and did have much more body than blow drying alone. The mousse also smells quite nice, and gave a nice fragrance to my hair. It held my style quite well also. It did drop after a few hours, but in all I was pretty pleased with the results.
The only downside to this mousse, is that my hair is harder to comb with this in, but this can be expected. Another point to note is excessive brushing will knock the body and bounce out of your hair style.
I would definitely buy this again, great results from tresemme,more body, bouncy, and a great price. I don't have much left in the can, but I have had quite a fair few uses out of the product.
