This is a product I absolutely can't live without. I've been nursing a travel size of this guy for quite a long time and it's lasted forever because I haven't actually used it on wet hair. That's right! I have very thick, coarse, naturally wavy hair and what I do is use other products on it while it's damp, let it air dry as much as possible and hit it with the diffuser when needed. Then, when it has set somewhat from drying, I take a small amount of the mousse and coat my hands with it and, instead of raking it through my hair with my fingers, I kind of grab sections and gently squeeze and scrunch the product into my curls. It's very sticky so you can't move it around or comb through dry hair after it's applied. However, it gives the most amazing shine and separates my locks into smooth pieces. The hold is amazing and...I don't even know how to describe it exactly. It's just absolutely awesome for thick, coarse, wavy or curly hair. It makes it effortless and controls the hair while giving it fantastic shine and you only need a very small amount of product on dry hair which extends the life of this pricey beauty. That's why I lightly coat my hands with it and squeeze the hair instead of putting a blob directly into the hair and trying to work it in. If you do that it will make that spot too crunchy and then you can't move the product around a lot on the hair. So it's important to get it on your hands and distribute onto the hair by gently squeezing sections at a time. You also need to work quickly. It's sticky on the hands but dries very quickly and once it's dry, it's totally dry, so there's just shine and no stickiness. If you wait too long to work it in it will dry on your hands and not transfer to the hair. Play around with this one to find how it works best for you because it's a winner once you get it down.
