I have talked before about my hair struggles – here – there is a lot of it, but it’s very fine, which equates to flathead if I’m not careful. I have tried a multidude of volumising mousses in the past, and most have resulted in solid and/or sticky hair. Conversely, I am also terrified of too much volume. As much as I hate flathead, puffhead is just as undesirable.
So, you could describe me as a little bit daft when, while browsing on Feelunique.com, I came across the Kerastase Mousse Bouffante and added it to my basket. It’s got the word Bouffant in the name for heaven’s sake! I forget what I was actually hunting for at the time, and why this particular green can stood out to me. I know what I wasn’t looking for though: volumising mousse.
So that goes some way to explain why the first time I tried it I was fairly sceptical. Kerastase itself is part of the trusted L’oreal group. I generally gravitate towards L’oreal for shampoos, as I find it is the only brand that doesn’t irritate my scalp (and I have tried more brands than I care to mention, over the years). Nonetheless, I expected the usual immovable helmet hair after blow drying. I was also cautious not to inject too much life into my barnett, in case it started to veer into actual bouffant territory.
I was beyond pleased to discover though, that it left me with soft, manageable and slightly more lifted hair than usual. Over the last six months or so, the length of my hair has varied greatly, but this fabulous mousse has been a constant. I use it regularly, and am confident that it will give just enough lift, without stiffness. In fact it’s like I just stepped out of a salon, and yes, I am worth it.
Have you tried the Kerastase Mousse Bouffante, or indeed any other volumising mousse? What is your biggest issue with your hair (if you have one!)?
