I actually bought this mousse not for the volume b/c I use another mousse or I should say that I used to use a different mousse made for volume, but that was until I came across the Herbal Essences tousle me softly mousse. I picked up this mousse for the purpose of holding the waves in my hair when I style my hair with the curling iron or swizzle stix. I accidently found out about how awsome this product is at adding volume, it is now my main go to for just that purpose. It does work okay at holding the wave in my hair, I apply to damp hair then add the swizzle stix or curlers depending on how much time I have, if I am short on time, I dry my hair with a pump of this mousse in my damp hair and then add heat protection and use the curling iron. That is how I had discovered the volume this stuff adds!
Sure any mousse will add volume, but what surprised me the most was HOW MUCH VOLUME this mousse gives! The mousse that I was previously using for volume should be ashamed! I think the reason the Tousle me softly mousse gives so much volume is the fact that it is so very light weight, it doesn't weigh my hair down, which is baby fine and thin, I only need a tiny bit and I get massive volume, sometimes too much volume, and my hair is very thin and wimpy, you could actually stand on the left side of me and wave to someone on the right side of me and because of how thin my hair is they will see you waving at them and wave back lol!
This mousse is light, no crunchy stiff or hard feel, looks natural in hair because of this and of course with all Herbal Essences produts smells wonderful. I will be retiring my 'volumizing' mousse for this one!
