How to use hair mousse for your hair type

Mousse is an easy, low-maintenance way to boost your hair’s volume and bounce. Use it once when you wash and style your hair, and reap its rewards until next hair wash day.

Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Mousse delivers 4x more fullness for long-lasting body without stiff strands or sticky residue. And with STYLEPROTECT Technology and color-safe ingredients, it looks after your hair’s health, acting as a 72-hour humidity shield.

Using Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Mousse

The actual application technique will differ depending on your hair type. Regardless, you won’t want more than 2-3 pumps of hair mousse. Start with less – a little goes a long way, and you can always add more to fully coat your hair.

Let’s get more specific:

For curly hair

Curly hair and mousse are a match made in heaven. With 48 hours of frizz control, Nexxus Volume Medium Hold is a great hair mousse for curly hair, smoothing and defining curls without compromising body and bounce.

Wash and condition with your usual curl-boosting Nexxus favorites – like Therappe and Humectress, then apply Volume Medium Hold Mousse from root to tip to refine and add bounce. Give your curls a light scrunch in your fist, from the ends up to the roots to enhance definition and lift from the mousse. Then dry as you would usually.

If you want to refresh your curly hair between wash days, reach for Refresh Volume Dry Shampoo.

For wavy hair

Mousse isn’t just for defining curls. It adds gorgeous texture to tousled waves, too.

To add definition to your waves, after washing and conditioning, apply Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Mousse from root to tip to help hold your style in place. Tousle and twist strands around your fingers, then dry as usual – either with a blow dryer or letting it air dry.

For fine and thin hair

Too many products can weigh down fine hair, making it look flat. That’s where Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Mousse’s STYLEPROTECT technology comes in, protecting your hair’s health as well as enhancing its style. It’s a true multi-tasking product, so you don’t need much else in your regime.

After washing and conditioning with Nexxus Diametress Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, roughly towel-dry your hair and work a small amount of Nexxus’s volumizing mousse through from root to tip. It delivers 4x more fullness to even the finest hair. Blow-dry with a barrel brush close to your roots for added lift.

For straight hair

Much like fine and thin hair types, straight hair can be weighed down with too much product, but it definitely benefits from added texture and volume so you don’t want to skip them entirely. Use Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Mousse in the same way you would for fine hair. You might just need a little more product, especially if your hair is long.

We love the results of this mousse on straight hair after a sleek blow dry with a barrel brush, but however you style it, you’ll benefit from the heat and frizz protection, plus long-lasting hold.

For damaged hair

Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Mousse is formulated to give you a 72-hour humidity shield – something that can hugely benefit, and further protect, damaged hair.

Damaged hair needs all the love and nourishment (and rest!) it can get. Use a hydrating, repairing Nexxus haircare range to wash and condition, like Keraphix. Volume Medium Hold Mousse encapsulates your hair with the protection it needs, so apply from root to tip, then, day-to-day, leave your hair to dry naturally or use minimal heat.
