HOW TO: GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR STYLING FOAM

HOW TO: GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR STYLING FOAM

Hair mousse may seem like a thing of the past, but we assure you it's not. For years we've been touting the styling powers of sculpting foams and lotions, and we're thrilled that some of our favourite products are once again making an appearance in nearly every stylists' kit. If you think crunchy 90’s curls when we say "mousse," let us introduce you to the *magic* of this must-have styler. 

GOODBYE CRUNCH, HELLO BEAUTIFUL HAIR DAYS

If you're new to mousse and styling foams, here is the most important thing to know: styling foams are easy to use and offer loads of great-hair-day benefits. Think hold, body, shine and texture. Ever wonder how you can make your blow-dry last longer? Or why that celebrity hair crush always has the best wavy texture? Chances are it's because they have used a styling foam. Modern formulas create soft, totally-touchable results that last without the crunch-factor.

WHY, HOW, WHEN

When it comes to introducing styling foams into your daily routine, it's as simple as this: wash, towel dry, apply a handful of mousse starting at your roots and work through your ends. Then blow-dry into your hair, simple right? Beyond the ease of application, here are a few styling tips:

CURLY GIRLS - always use a moisturising formula like Sculpting Foam and a diffuser when you blow-dry your hair to minimise frizz and keep your tendrils intact.

FINE HAIRED GIRLS - use a volumising mousse to give your hair body and hold. Our pros suggest applying Extra-Body Sculpting Foam from your roots to ends and blow-dry using a round brush to create lasting volume.

WAVY HAIRED GIRLS - Enhance your already gorgeous texture with a light hold foam and gently air dry your hair to keep it shiny, manageable and full of body.

HAIR UP - Don't overlook the styling magic of mousse. When you start with a smooth and manageable base full of shine and body, your end result will be easier to achieve.
