It’s a common misconception that those with curly or afro hair want nothing more than to supress and flatten their hair.
While I do like to wear my hair straight, I don’t want it to look limp, flat and stuck to my head. When my hair was relaxed this was a particular concern and now it’s natural, I still prefer the volumised bouncy look. Since I’ve had my hair coloured, I’ve discovered it holds heat well, a little too well! As a result when I straighten it, it can look a little lifeless.
While looking in my bathroom cabinet I came across a bottle of John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Simply Shine Mousse. I’d previously bought the John Frieda Brilliant Brunette shampoo and conditioner from Boots (love that 3 for 2) and was pleased so was happy to give the mousse a go.
I washed and conditioned my hair as usual and before blow drying added a golf ball amount of mousse, paying particular attention to the roots. I blow dried and straightened my hair as usual and could tell it already felt more volumised. The roots were no longer lying flat against my scalp; there was a definite lift and my hair had much more body.
If you have curly hair of any kind but you like to wear it straight, this mousse is great for adding shine, life and lift to your straight hair. It is now a regular feature in my hair care routine.
