The correct way of applying hair mousse to straight hair


First, you want to start with clean and freshly washed hair. Putting mousse on dirty hair can just add to the product buildup already in your strands, which can weigh your hair down.


Make sure your hair is still a little damp (but not soaking wet!) before putting the mousse in. If you’ve towel-dried or air-dried your hair for a few minutes, you can use a leave-in to help get your hair back to its damp state.



Now, it’s time to apply. If you’re using mousse for the first time, spray a dollop of airy mousse into your hand, not directly into your scalp.


Next, you want to use your fingers to spread the product along with your roots. Make sure your mousse is spread evenly across your roots and that no area is wetter than another, as this may cause stiffness and crunchiness later on.
