    Default Hair mousse on dry hair suggestions?

    Have any you tried to put on hair mousse on dry hair? Especially in cases which curls loose or doesnt hold well?

    I think it might... flake? What if you put your mousse in your wet hair, then when it's dry, on second day you put more in on dry... won't it flake. I would think your hair would have to be wet to put mousse in... I'm not sure, though.

    You could try and see what it does, and if it works... keep us posted!

    I feel like it would be a very sticky mess... I would dampen the hair first.

    I've recently discovered gel refreshes my curls well if I use it on dry hair. It takes a lot of gel to get past sticky and into slippery, though. Then it dries hard, so it takes a lot of scrunching to get rid of the wet look. My hair doesn't like mousse applied wet, so I've never tried that. It might work, though. The only way to know is to try.

    I've done it heaps and heaps of times (I stress this was before my recent damage drama) but in short, it caused no issues at all. I used fructis for curls and refreshed often with it - just put a little in my hands and scrunched.. it suited my hair fine. However, since doing a mass of research post the damage, I think there may be better options out there to revive curls and add volume. I now use things like this https://www.priceline.com.au/schwarz...reatment-80-ml and a range of other leave in conditioners that add a little volume, shine and curl.. Davroe is a great brand to investigate if you want to keep natural and chemical nasty free.. they have great volume sprays that you can use on wet or dry hair..

    You can't get that brand in Belgium, can you even get that outside of AU?

    I donít recommend it depends on the mousse I guess. But I find it dries my hair out something terrible. Itís also easy to use too much and end up with a sticky disaster and yucky clumpy curls.

    They're in the US. It looks like they're slowly expanding worldwide.

    UPDATE: I tried it. Well, it didnt work well. Mousse on dry hair make it frizzy. I thinked that idea because sometimes my hair lose moisture and my curls get loose and messy very fast, so i though mousse on dry hair would help but.....nope. Im afraid gel will make it worse so i dont use any. As for oils and that method with the spray with water and conditioner, it is really a good idea of putting them(one of the 2!) on hair who have been added with mousse before? I mean, oil on hair with mousse before will cause frizz or damage? Same with the spray with water and conditoner.

    Why do you think gel will make it worse? The whole point is to let gel dry, holding the hair in position, then scrunching out the crunch and the hair stays where it dried - as far as I understand it, anyway. I know my Mum used to use mousse to keep volume in her hair while she blow-dried, but nothing to do with keeping moisture in or anything. (I don't know, I'm not a curly so I'm happy to be corrected if necessary!)
