Lightweight mousse for wavy long bob

(5 Posts)

I'm growing my hair but it's mid-point. It's chin-length and makes me look about 20 years older than I am.

I think having it wavy will help. I have naturally curly hair so I can diffuse dry, put some product in and then run my fingers through to drop the curls into lovely waves.

I'm struggling with the product bit though. My hairdresser said I need some lightweight mousse which will hold the wave but won't make it crispy. She recommended a salon one which was £25 shock which I just can't afford.

So, can anyone recommend a good mousse for this purpose. I don't mind paying a bit for it if it's good stuff but I'd struggle to justify paying more than about £8 TBH.

Any help would be wonderful, please.

The Elnett one is non-crispy. I have the volumising one as I already have curls too but my hair is fine however they do have one for curly/wavy hair.

Boots often have it on offer - think it's approx £5.99 or thereabouts.

VO5 one makes my hair crispy so don't bother with that one!
