I have used this brand of mousse since the early 90's and have yet to find a better mousse out there for my hair. (I am hispanic with medium hair...not fine or coarse. My hair is full of 3b and 3c curls with a sprinkle of 3a and it works wonderfully on all of them..If you dont know what kind of curl you have, look it up, curly hair starts at 3a, wavy hair starts at 2a, , Z shaped tighter curls 4a...you really need to know what your hair is to understand peoples descriptions of what works for what hair. Some people with wavy hair think they have curly hair...and I don't think this is the product for them. (I could be wrong though) I also do not know that this would be too good for type 4 curls as I think it would be too drying with more fragile type 4 hair which tends to very very dry to begin with) WORD OF ADVICE, back in the day (early 90's) tresemme only made ONE type of mousse, it was fantastic. Then over the years they started making a few different formulas. If you have curly hair (if you are type 3 curl at least) you MUST use the curly hair one...I half wonder if these bad reviews are from people who have used the other mousse "blends" they offer...because the other ones totally suck. It has to be THIS one...or nothing. The other ones leave my hair tangled, sticky, and when dry they flake making me look like I have a bad case of dandruff. I also disagree on amount used (perhaps because I live in an area where 75%-95% humidity is the norm and I have found that I always need way more product in humidity vs. if I am up north where humidity is much lower) To be fair, I have hair nearly down to my butt...but I use about 6 egg sized squirts on EACH side of my head and work through evenly, yes, for a total of 12. I put it in damp hair (that has a little frizz ease OR dr. bronners hair cream in first...I need the extra frizz control here though I have to be careful because this can weigh my hair down a tad too much if I over do it but is corrected by day 2) THIS is the perfect amount for my hair in high humidity. My hair will STAY frizz free for TWO DAYS in VERY high humidity, and I do not even do anything special at night to keep it from frizzing. I can get an extra 3rd day before washing if I reactivate it with a bit of water spritzing but day one and day two require nothing further from me for perfect hair. (Day 3 I wake up with a little of that fuzz halo around the crown of my head where it is starting to frizz but the rest is still usually in pretty good shape) Now if I am in low humidity I need wayyyyy less, a little less than half that amount...so this is something to think about when figuring YOUR right amount. This formula is wonderful, it defines each curl perfectly and leaves them looking shiny and glossy which is hard to get for a type 3 or higher curl as our hair tends to appear much more dull than other hair types. I do not blow dry (though I did in the 90's lol) because it leaves my hair too puffy (turns every curl on my head into a 3c and shrinks my length a good 6-7 inches) I just put it in damp, give a quick scrunch and let air dry. Every so often I flip my head over and scrunch out the crunch as it is drying, shake, and stand up...perfect hair every time! People think I spend hours on my hair...but really after I step out of the shower it is under five minutes of application and working it through and just 2 or three quick "scrunchings" as it dries. No big deal. I have tried many other brands when the curl one is not on the shelf (which is way too often...) and none compare. I have actually tried REALLY hard to find a natural/organic alternative (as I have switched pretty much everything we use to more natural and/or organic about 8-9 years ago) but after about 8+ years now of searching for that natural product that can take its place...well, I keep coming back. Nothing else works as well. I would even be willing to pay up to [$] for a product that was natural and could work this well...so for me it really is not about price, its about how it makes my hair LOOK, this is the best, period.

I was so excited to find that Tresemme created a curly line of products. Mainly because they're a decent brand, and have totally reasonable prices. I have thick wavy/curly hair that I twist into ringlets and diffuse. I find that mousses work best for me, and have been using this for a few months now. I'm fed up though with how my hair has been looking, and am going to switch products. I find that I have lots of build-up with this mousse and also using the matching shampoo and conditioner, and have to use a clarifying shampoo every week because my hair gets really lifeless and flat.

I use this mousse on my wet hair, scrunch it in, comb through, style and diffuse. I use a small dollop for my almost shoulder length hair. Its really not that much, and even then I find that by the end of the day, my hair is a sticky, flat, and dull looking. My hair looks ok for about 4 hours max, before it starts looking gross and losing its volume. And thats just not good enough for me, plus the 'hold' of the mousse is not natural looking. Its ok for the price, but there's got to be some better product out there that can give me volume, hold, and enhance my natural curl/wave.

Comments about TRESemme Curl Care Flawless Curls Hair Mousse, Extra Hold, 10.5 oz:

This product is pretty good. I have asian hair- black, thick, and curly. I'm always on the lookout for new brands and products and when i came across this, i thought it might worked. I had tried garnier fructis scrunching mousse, and curl creams galore, but when i found this one, it actually worked on my hair! i usually put it in when it's wet, so that it doesnt get too sticky and crunchy. i put a little in after its dried so that the frizz is tamed. It does it's job well, and has a great smell and good price. It makes your hair crunchy at the ends if you put too much in. So, less is more, ladies!

I like this product, but there are probably better out there. I have wavy hair and it defines my waves, just not enough as other products. If you put too much in your hair, it'll be sticky.

The first time I used it I love it; my hair looked almost wet with defined curls, but then the next day I never had my hair so dry and frizzy. I only use it for emergencies, but I try not to because it really damages my hair.

For defining your curls and bringing out the shine in your hair, this product is a MUST! If you use too much it doesnt look natural and all you really need is a little bit to get the job done. The smell is also great. Tames frizz and hair just looks great.

Made my wavy hair LIMP and stiff! My hair looked like straw, not at all soft and flowy. By the end of the day, my hair was hanging in clumps! Only reason I gave it two stars is for price and pleasant smell.

Yes, there are more expensive products out there, but why spend more money when this does the job even better than those expensive bottles of mousse?! A little goes a long way, and it sets the curl with no frizzies! It enhances my natural wave to a nice, soft curl. I like the mousse for curls better than gel because it's a lot less weight on the curl and better control than a spray gel. Try it!

Comments about TRESemme Curl Care Flawless Curls Hair Mousse, Extra Hold, 10.5 oz:

I bought into this and it bit me in the behind. I like that there is a lot of this product for the price I paid. It made it easy to try to make this product work over and over and over again. I didn't like that this product, didn't care for, enhance, or make flawless one single curl on my head! And there's a lot of them! Instead, it actually made my curls coarse and feeling like I just washed my hair with the most mineral rich water in the world. My fingers actually got caught in my hair, after I used this, moments after my hair was beautifully flowing with my leave-in spray and frizz cream. I have tried using it in many different scenarios, but never did it actually do what it said. It's almost as if the wrong product got injected into the packaging.

Comments about TRESemme Curl Care Flawless Curls Hair Mousse, Extra Hold, 10.5 oz:

This product is wonderful! It is not sticky, doesn't flake (which happens a lot with the cheap products), and just looks/feels good. I have medium curly waves that are shoulder length (and looks nasty if I don't tame it). I normally just sprunch a ball of mousse in (a little bigger than the recommended golf-ball size) and it does wonders. The smell is great, not too chemical (like salon products), and not tacky. It's a nice floral, feminine smell. I strongly recommend this product!
