Number 4™ Styling Foam

Our Miami-based friends told us that this multitasking styling foam helps their hair look pristine through a summer’s worth of sweltering heat and tropical humidity. Naturally intrigued, we decided to investigate it for ourselves, and we’re pleased to report it works in all climates. The body-boosting formula provides flexible hold and can be used to define curls or fight frizz. Bonus: it also prevents heat and sun damage and extends the life of your color with loads of nourishing botanicals.

Smells great, nice volume-add
Purchased

I love the smell of Number 4 products. The bonus of this one is that it adds some volume. I would use it with a heat protection spray, though, as my hair seemed to dry out a little bit if I used it alone.

Great product.
Purchased

I love number 4 products. I use this along with the prep and protect. It gives me a lot of volume and it stays all day. I don't care for the smell as much as other number 4 products. That's my only complaint.

I have tried over a dozen styling foams and this one was just middle of the road. The foam is very lightweight but didn't really seem to do much for my waves. It also made my hair very frizzy. The scent is just okay.

Not impressed...
Purchased

First of all- I am in love with Number 4™ Clarifying shampoo. Pair that with relatively good reviews for the styling foam, and I thought ordering was a no-brainer!

Wrong. After using this product (as directed)- my hair felt disgustingly dirty (like, haven't washed in 2 weeks- if you can imagine that..), and it wouldn't do anything (i.e. hold curl or volume). It was felt horrible, looked flat (as in no-shine), and was overall a huge disappointment. Giving No4 the benefit of the doubt, I tried this product 2 more times after weather changes (humidity/temperature), and have gotten the same result each time.

Such a bummer, and waste of money!

It worked!

I was very pleased with the sample size. It smelled nice & clean. It worked well enough & held my hair nicely for the better part of 8 hours as long as the wind didn't blow at all. What I absolutely didn't like was how sticky it made my hair & the sticky residue it left on my face & neck until my hair was completely dry. It caused a very minor break out at my hair line all 3 times I tried using it. I will say though that I have incredibly sensitive skin. Also if I used even a drop to much of this product when I brushed out my hair a few hours later even if I had just washed my hair a few hours prior my hair would look dirty, greasy, in the areas that had the excess product. It wasn't as if I applied tons of this product. I have very long hair that reaches my butt & I only used about the size of a quarter to fifty cent piece worth of product so in my opinion not enough to make my hair appear greasy. My curly thick texture haired cousin used & loves this though & she had none of the issues I did.

Love it!!

Finally a mousse that tames my frizzy curly hair, leaves it soft and not as hard and crunchy as other mousses. Smells nice and soft. Great buy!

Awesome volume!
Purchased

I've been using this product in a slightly different way than advertised but its been performing so well that I had to write a review! I start by towel drying my hair in the evening, applying detangler, applying the Number 4 Styling Foam, and letting my hair mostly air dry. When I curl my hair the next morning, I can tell the foam has totally helped to create this nice volume/bounce in my curls. I go one day without washing my hair and oh my goodness, the volume in day 2 is AMAZING! I've never seen my hair with such volume without using hairspray. But this is all sans hairspray now. I love it!! Totally will be repurchasing !! :)

Very disappointed with this product
Purchased

I went off all the other good reviews. When I got this, it is very liquidy, not foamy at all. Also, it makes my hair dry and frizzy when straight and curly. It also leaves a weird texture feel to my hair. I will not be repurchasing this again. I am even thinking of throwing it out, but it is so expensive I hate to waste the product.

Bouncy Curls

NO MORE CRUNCH! I have always hated that crispy feeling that mousse or gel turns your hair into. I want my curls to stay all day, but that doesn't necessarily mean I don't want them to move all day! This smells great, and actually really does provide for a flexible hold. I have very fine hair so it honestly doesn't take much! I love No. 4 products to begin with, but this is almost like a leave-in conditioner + flexible hold - if you want to brush your hair out after having this product in, go for it, doesn't break your strands and your hair does feel surprisingly soft even after having mousse in all day. It is definitely pricey and does not last as long as I would hope, which is why I rated it 4 stars, but definitely give it a shot if you experience the same frustrations!
