I've used mousse before on my hair but found it very drying and sticky. So when my hair dresser suggested trying Lanza Solutios Urban Elements Bodifying Foam, I hesitated. She talked me into it, though, and I was pleasantly surprised.
The product is used like any other mousse. Shake the can, hold it upside down, squirt it into your hand and apply it evenly through wet hair before styling. But the difference I found was that my hair still felt soft while using it. Also, this product did not dry my hair out, like many products I've tried in the past.
When I saw "Urban Elements" on the can, I'll admit that I thought it would be something with severe hold like the goths and rockers would use to spike their hair. It was nothing like that and I'm very pleased with the way it helps hold my hair styles longer.
