I use Suave Maximum Hold hair styling mousse mostly to make my hard-to-manage hair stay in shape after I wash it. I apply a small amount of it to towel-dry hair, work it in with my fingers, and then comb and style my hair. I usually let it air dry and then brush again - that's when the volumizing part kicks in. I do not like my hair flat, and this mousse does help to add volume.
It is a little sticky, especially if you over-apply it, so I need to be careful and make sure I do not use too much. When my hair completely dries though, the sticky feeling is gone, the hair looks natural and is soft to the touch.
Suave Maximum Hold hair mousse is a good, affordable product that does its job well. It is economical, too - even though I have longer hair, one bottle lasts me well over a month.
