For many years, I have been a loyal user of Pantene Volumizing Mousse. Think Lassie, loyal. I have given other mousses a whirl, most have disappointed me, but I have never switched.
I bought the Southern Belle Volumizing Mousse on a lark. I was in Sephora looking for some new products to try, and wondered why I’d never given the Drybar mousse a go. I’ve been happy with all of my Drybar experiences, so why not try it?
The first time I used it, I noticed two things immediately: 1) My hair seemed more moisturized, and 2) my coif was so voluminous even a Texas pageant girl would have been impressed. But I’ve been tricked before, so I didn’t want to give the new mousse all of the credit.
Ten uses later, I can say with certainty, it’s the mousse.
Since using the product, I’ve also noticed an increase in flexibility, and better hold. And unlike many other mousses that I’ve tried, this one hasn’t given me acne around my hairline. Praise be to the hair gods.
Bottom line, I’m switching. Permanently. This newly volumized hair and I will not be parted. However, if you cannot bring yourself to spend $26 on mousse, the Pantene is still my favorite drugstore brand.
