I have tried a lot of products for my curly hair and am a huge fan of this mousse. It keeps my curls healthy and tight without frizz or crunchiness, and I even like the smell. Also, my hair is not extremely thick, so I like that it seems to add a little extra volume and bounce. One of the other reviewers mentioned that they find this product heavy. I do not find that at all, but I think the key is to really shake the can well before you dispense and apply. If you are searching for the right product for curly hair (and at a great price, too!), I would definitely recommend trying this one.

I have super kinky, curly hair that is very thick and full of body, I tried this after I had great success with Garnier Fructis Curl Cream, but was disappointed that it didn't define my curls at all... or provide any structure or control. I think this product would be great for people who want more body and less control, because it does leave your hair very soft looking and adds body... but I already have plenty of body in my thick hair, and really need a curl defining mouse that provides more control and this does the opposite.

        Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Construct Mousse, Extra Strong, 6.8 fl oz:

        I'm actually surprised by some of the negative reviews. I think this mousse is one of the better drugstore brands' I've used. I had my hair permed wavy/curly, and I need mousse to help me keep the curls. This mousse holds my curls pretty well, and my hair looks bouncy! My hair looks nice and not too stiff. It does make my hair a little crunchy, but not too bad. Overall, i think it's a mousse that I would recommend. The only thing I don't like about it is the smell, fortunately it's not strong, but I always wash my hands afterwards because I really don't like that smell.

              Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Construct Mousse, Extra Strong, 6.8 fl oz:

              This does absolutely nothing to add curl to hair. I scrunched my hair, which will normally curl very nicely if I dry it that way with a GOOD product for creaating curls. My hair is thick, naturally wavy, and will turn curly when I blow-dry, scrunch with a curl gel or mousse, and follow up with a little paste just to tame frizzies. This did NOTHING to create the curls while I was drying. Finesse's Curl Mousse is far superior, and doesn't stiffen & weigh down my hair like this did. My hair felt dirty quickly after using this product- and with my extremely thick & porous hair, that is highly unusual. I love most of the Garnier Fructis line- the Surf Paste, Extreme Hold Hairspray, Sleek & Shine Conditiner & their Brilliantine Spray is good. But this mousse is worthless.

                Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Construct Mousse, Extra Strong, 6.8 fl oz:

                Garnier Fructis products are hit or miss for me. I love their Surf Paste & Extreme Hold Hairspray for my extremely thick hair. I reside in MD, and humidity is a big factor, and we also have lots of wind, so hold is a big deal. This mousse creates hold, stiffens hair, adds shine, doesn't create deeper waves or curls for me in the least. So it's a mixture of pros & cons. Finesse's curl mousse was better at actually bringing out curl, but GF definitely smells better. The packaging is bright & fun. The mousse is very fluffy & easy to lose control of. It tames frizz, I will give it that. I like it, but gel seems better for my very thick hair- maybe a girl with thinner hair & truly curly hair would prefer this, as it's less heavy than gel (though it's heavy for a mousse on the hair, I will say).

                    I have used this mousse for several years. Having compared it to other brands, this is the best for my very short spikey hairstyle. Only downside is that the dispenser top was redesigned a year or so ago and it is hard to use, especially when new. This has not made me change product, however.

                      I've got incredibly frizzy, curly hair. It's really fine, so a heavy product will weight it down quickly since it's also oily. This product worked really well for me. It had great hold without being sticky or brittle, didn't weigh down my hair, and smelled great without being over-powering. My curls stayed coiled and frizz-free with very little touch up all day. My only comment here is if you've got a nervous habit of brushing your hair back, it'll really bring the frizz out and be a bit hard to put back into place.

                        This is the best mousse I've used so far for my curly hair. The product is heavy, however, so I only use this product if I plan on wearing my hair up. It helps keep definition so I don't have that straight hair to the ponytail then curly at the ends.

                        Garnier Fructis Style Curl Construct Mousse, Extra Strong

                         – Take control of your style with Garnier Fructis Style Curl Construct Mousse, Extra Strong! This rich, elegant mousse contains a powerful holding technology featuring fruit micro-waxes. Inspired by nature, the use of these natural fruit surface waxes was developed by Garnier and incorporated into its mousse formula to help provide superior control. It is part of a new generation of styling products that contains naturally formulated ingredients to protect and hold. Garnier Fructis mousse gives power to create and control any style, providing weightless curls and holds.

                        What is a Curl Construct Mousse?



                        Controlled styling requires a product that defines and boosts curls. The Garnier Fructis Style Curl Construct Mousse, Extra Strong uses fruit micro-waxes to control frizz and flyaways. All fruits are protected by these natural waxes on their surfaces, to provide protection and control of hydration. Using this inspiration from nature, when fruit micro-waxes are formulated into mousse, they provide the power to construct perfect curls. From unruly to structured curls, loose to defined, Garnier Fructis mousse provides ultra-long-lasting hold and shine, but without stickiness or buildup.

                        How Does It Work?



                        Fruit waxes are complex compounds naturally created by the plant to protect the surface of the fruit and allow control of moisture content. When applied to mousse, fruit micro-waxes provide long-lasting hold that can be used to control frizz and flyaways. At the same time, well-defined curls can be boosted without stickiness or buildup. To get the most out of the control power of this mousse from Garnier, apply it evenly on slightly damp hair. Then, scrunch the hair to lift and dry. During this process, the hair can be allowed to form natural, separated curls with bounce and shine, or curls can be deliberately constructed by hand. It gives power to create, define and control curls in any style.
