Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse has been hair’s lifesaver for months. When the wavy, beach look first became popular, I was an awkward pre-teen who didn’t know what to do with her hair much less what hair type I had. One day, I decided to try scrunching my hair with gel to see what it would look like. Turns out, I had naturally wavy hair and it looked great! I spent years, however, looking for a mousse or gel that would make my hair wavy and soft, not hard and crunchy.
The Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse gave me the perfect balance of hold and soft waves. For chest-length hair, I would shake and squirt about a palm-full of the mousse, flip my head, and scrunch for 2 or 3 minutes. My hair always becomes instantly wavy and as it dries, I never feel it get crunchy or hard. The back of the bottle instructs you to use your fingers to diffuse your hair while using a hair dryer on low heat. Unless you’re worried about having wet hair, it isn’t necessary to waste energy taking out the hair dryer. Air drying works fine with this product! If you have naturally curly hair, this mousse will also help reduce the amount of frizz and number of flyaways that are common with curly hair.
While I usually use this product in the morning, there are some evenings that I scrunch my hair up, go to bed, and wake up the next morning with perfectly wavy hair. When they say this product holds, they aren’t kidding. If I don’t feel like showering every day, my hair will hold the curl for up to two days – thanks to this Herbal Essences product.
If you’re sensitive to smell, the Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse has a feminine, flowery smell that won’t overpower, but will definitely leave your hair smelling great. You may want to smell this product before you purchase, however, because when I use it, I can smell it for the entire day. I love the smell, but you may not.
For only $3-5 depending on where you shop, this Herbal Essences curl boosting mousse will do the work of a diffuser and professional styling product to make your hair look beachy and feminine all day long.
