Moroccanoil Curl Control Mousse is the truth, and I don't say that lightly. I had been looking for something to shield my curly hair from the humidity for a while, and when I happened upon this product I was honestly dubious. When I say that I take my hair very seriously, I mean it. I'm also very particular with products I put in my hair since I'm natural, and I have a process that I tend not to deviate from if it gives me the curl I want.
Anyway, when I first put the mousse in my hair I was pleasantly surprised at how effective it was getting into the coil that I wanted without being stiff! Usually mousse makes my hair super crunchy, which is another reason why I try to stay away from it. With the curl control, it was still soft, supple, and totally touchable! Another thing I highly appreciated was that it didn't shrink my curls. I twist my hair at night to give it the curl that I like for the next day — and that includes the length, because like other naturals, I suffer from the dreaded shrinkage, which means that when my hair is faced with water, it shrinks into a tighter curl, making it appear shorter than it really is.
When I finally went outside and faced the New York City heat, my hair held up really well. It puffed a little, but my curls were really defined throughout the day, which is literally all I've ever asked from a mousse but never received until now. To say that I was shook was an understatement. All in all I love this mousse, and if you're looking for a product to keep your curly hair in place, while also leaving it as silky and soft as a baby's bottom, I'd give it a try! —Ignacia Fulcher
