Battle of the… Hair Mousse

Today’s Battle of the… Product Review is from Kirsten Murphy Rossiter, a professional hair stylist and makeup artist, who is certainly very well placed to weigh in as the judge in this Battle of the Hair Mousse round up!

Being a wavy haired girl, I cannot go without any form of product on my hair once I’ve washed it…

Mousse was always my go to product until I started exploring a few other products like Moroccanoil and Paul Mitchell Roundtrip.

But I am always on the lookout for something new and a better to prevent my waves from frizzing out while keeping up my low maintenance hair do so I recently decided to go back to basics and try mousse again….

So, here it is…

The Battle of the… Hair Mousse


Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse

Hair type: Fine to Medium Hair

First up, the product that has my favourite smell. I can definitely say that right from the get go, this product did exactly what it said it would, it volumized. I generally have quite a bit of volume in my hair, but I often find that product can weigh it down. This mousse however felt light, weightless and volume was multiplied! This mousse creates a flexible hold and offers lift without the stickiness.

Schwarzkopf Bonacure Volume Boost Perfect Foam

Hair Type: Fine Hair to normal hair lacking body, volume and vitality.

A lightweight, silicone free formula which is perfect for fine hair. Silicone free products won’t weigh the hair down, making it feel coated and heavy as products that contain silicone would do. This is probably the best mousse I have tried, ever. Very little product was used for my very long hair and my waves were defined and enhanced like never before.

Price: +- R299 (


L’Oreal Studio Pro Boost It Volume Mousse

Hair Type: All hair types

Before trying the L’oreal boost it Volume mousse I had already previously tried the Volume Boost it Hairspray in the same range, so I was already a fan. I love the striking packaging and the mousse has a great fragrance too. It offers an extra strong hold, therefore leaving my waves feeling slightly crunchy. It does well eliminating frizz. I would definitely recommend it as a middle of the range mousse to tame unruly waves or curls.

Price: +- R99.95 (Clicks)
