The quality of the product is outstanding when you compare it to the price. It prevents frizz (which is too common an occurrence, for me anyways *sigh*) and doesn't weigh your hair down or make it look greasy. It's not magical and it cannot completely style your hair so set your expectations straight, but it does what it says on the tin and calms down your hair. A must buy.

I am in my late teens/early 20's with normal, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is blonde, oily with normal texture.
I bought this because I wanted to get more volume and hold with my hair as i'd just had it cut, and it gave me all i needed, the perfect volume for my layers, and it kept my hair that way. Absolutely brilliant.

I am in my mid 20's with combination, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is medium brown, oily with fine texture.
I bought this as a substitute for my other mousse because it was a lot cheaper and I found that it works great! Gives great hold to curls when I scrunch them but it can feel a little bit sticky (so don't use too much!). Other than that, great product! :} x

I tried this and compared to higher marked brands it works brilliantly. I would choose this product over a Toni and Guy one anyday. A mousse could sometimes weigh down you hair, but this one leaves it light and silky. Exactly the result i wanted.

I am in my late teens/early 20's with oily, light tone skin and hazel eyes. My hair is light brown, normal with normal texture.
I picked up this product in desperation one day as my usual brand was not in stock and other brands that I tried were expensive (relatively) and did a poor job. This mousse is fantastic! It does what you want it to, it lasts all day, and it is a great price. I would recommend trying this product if you use hair mousse
