Mousse is, without doubt, an essential styling product, whether you want a headful of defined curls or a statement hairstyle with whole lot of volume. However, even if you're already using mousse as part of your regular styling routine, there are probably a few ways to make it work even better for you and your hair.

To find out how to get the most out of your styling mousse, check out the tips below.

Voluminous blowouts

No matter what your hair type, applying mousse before a blowout will add thickness and definition to your tresses. Scrunch in the right mousse for your desired texture, allow your hair to air dry until it's only slightly damp, then blow-dry your hair the rest of the way, working in sections with a round brush.

Soft curls without heat

For soft, silky curls, apply a curl enhancing mousse into damp hair, then leave it to air dry naturally. Not only is this great for creating gorgeous curls, it's also a good way to cut back on heat styling, thus reducing your chances of heat damage.

Frizz protection

Whatever kind of finish you want, be it high definition curls or a sleek, straight look, mousse will seal your strands against frizz as your hair dries without weighing it down.

Effortlessly undone hair

One of the easiest ways to add texture to naturally straight hair is to scrunch in some mousse and let it air dry. A volume boosting mousse will help the hair to appear thicker and skipping the blowout will create a naturally undone finish.
