Best Mousse: TRESemmé Flawless Curls Extra Hold Mousse
The Flawless Curls Mousse lives up to TRESemmé’s reputation as both professional and affordable. The product gives waves bounce, coverage from frizz and extra hold. The alcohol-free formula features keratin, which helps to seal in the hair cuticle in order to prevent frizz and split ends.

Squeeze a handful of product into palms and mix. Scrunch into hair generously, applying more mousse as needed. For additional volume, scrunch hair with your head turned down. Ensure that all product is evenly distributed and that no residue remains.
