It’s the height of summer, and where I live, that means wretched storms followed by extreme humidity. (If you think I’m kidding, check out this picture of my “backyard”. A 20 minute downpour made the pond rise about 12 inches). And with that humidity comes frizzy, unmanageable hair… until this year.
I tried Tresemme Climate Control Mousse ($3-5 at drugstores) on a whim and it turned out to be a great buy. I apply probably a baseball-sized amount (since mousse is mostly air) throughout damp hair and then blow dry/straighten as usual. This keeps my hair straight and frizz free for 2 or 3 days until I wash again. It also keeps my hair from developing kinks from sleeping funny or using hair ties.
The other thing I noticed is that it makes my hair feel a little more ‘grabby’, so it holds volume more easily. For my hair, which has a lot of slip, this is a great thing. If your hair already has a course texture, I’m not sure it would be. Despite the grabbiness (so technical), I don’t notice any tangling.
On top of all this, the bottle says it contains “UV blockers”. I’m not sure what this means since it doesn’t say ‘sunscreen’, nor is there any type of SPF listed. However I do know that protecting color-treated hair from the sun is important to make the color last longer, so hopefully this would provide a benefit for some women
This product has the performance I want at a budget price, and it’s truly become a staple product for me.
