Review of the best according to the editorial board. About selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Even after good styling, the hairstyle often loses volume after an hour. Special fixing means are called upon to help the hair to maintain its shape: varnishes, sprays, foams and others. Mousses are arguably the most popular of all products. They are well absorbed into the hair, enveloping each with a film that avoids sticking and provides elasticity and elasticity to the curls.

Our experts have conducted a thorough analysis of the beauty market, selecting 15 of the best hair mousses.

What to look for when choosing a hair mousse

  1. Varieties of mousses. There are different categories of this styling product. The action of each is aimed at performing specific tasks, sometimes several simultaneously. For example, volumizing mousses are most common among women. If you have dyed hair, then you should opt for mousses that retain color for a long time, and do not wash it out. For girls with damaged curls, it is better to prefer mousses with a recovery effect. For those who often use a hairdryer, irons, and curling irons, it is advisable to choose mousses that provide thermal protection.

  2. Fixation level. Each mousse has its own degree, usually indicated on the package with a number from one and higher. The lower the number, the weaker the effect, but this does not mean that such products will not keep styling. It should be borne in mind that such mousses are suitable for owners of thin and thin hair. Those who have naturally voluminous hair and hard, unruly hair need to buy products with the strongest fixation.

  3. Hypoallergenic. If you are prone to allergies, avoid mousses that contain a large amount of chemicals, perfumery fragrances and other things that can provoke the appearance of unwanted body reactions.

  4. Composition. A good mousse should be free of alcohol-containing ingredients that dry your hair too much. But vitamins of group A, B and E, ceramides, keratin and elements protecting from UV rays will perfectly nourish curls, restoring damaged areas, and also protect hair from the negative effects of external factors.
