Aussie Catch the Wave Mousse+ Leave In


It's been awhile since I've used a mousse and I saw someone on youtube with gorgeous hair use it. Even though she had a looser curl pattern I thought I had to try it. Anyway I'de never heard of a mousse that had the leave-in conditioner built in.

It's Claims:
Get an A+ on your style by keeping it styled and quenched. Smiley face stickers not included. What do you get when you cross a mousse with a leave-in conditioner? Healthy smooth locks that’ll lock and look how you want em’. This is one mousse crossing that needs no crossing.

I love the fat purple container. It's so pretty. Packaging goes a long way with me. The new container is skinny and the ingredient list is in a different order. The better ingredients are more towards the bottom.The one I got has the better ingredients towards the top. It smells nice but the scent fades really easily. I had some problems getting the product out though. Then their was about a half an ounce and I couldn't get that out AT ALL....waste of product.

But enough about that. I'll talk about how it worked in my hair. The first times I used too much. And it was kinda crunchy. But trust me I used ALOT. Mousse is addictive and fun. But then I got it right and it was perfect. Defined curls that weren't hard at all. It came out even better when I used additional leave in. It's a nice mousse, I like it.

Ingredients:
Water, Isobutane, Propane, Kangaroo Paw Flower Leaf Extract, Wild Cherry Bark Extract, Peppermint Leaf Extract, Aloe Leaf, Polyquarternium- 4, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cocomidapropyl Betaine, Lauramine Oxide, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Methylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Propylene Glycol, Vitamin E, Ethylhexyl, Salicylate


Ingredients aren't the greatest. I mean PROPANE. What does propane do for your hair? It does have a some good ingredients though. I can't complain because it was cheap. About 3 dollars for 8 ounces.

In conclusion I like it. It's a good mousse if your a fan of mousses and it contains no CFC’s which deplete ozone layer. I would recommend it.
