Ask Belle: Pumping Up the Volume

Nov 25, 2013

Hi Belle,

You wrote a post once about using mousse, and I’m trying to find it.  I just had a baby and the awesome hair I had during the pregnancy went away with the hormones.  Can you also remind me what brand you use?

New Mommy with Flat Hair

Congratulations on the new addition!

The post about using mousse can be found here.  As for which brand I use, my fine hair responds best to Pantene Triple Action Maximum Volume Mousse ($5).  However, it can make your hair a bit dry, so remember to condition regularly.

Aside from the Pantene, the only other brand I would ardently recommend is John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume Building Mousse ($7).  It’s designed for fine hair, and I really like it, but I’m very brand loyal.

As for expensive mousses, I’ve tried many varieties, but I always head back to the drugstore.  I don’t notice much, if any, difference between the pricey salon brands and the mousse you can buy at Wal-Mart.

    I suffer from the same flat hair syndrome. I tried Aquage Uplifting Foam after my hairstylist recommended it. AMAZING! It provides great volume and texture. Kate from The Small Things Blog has a video on how she uses it which was very helpful.

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
