A great hairstyle is the best accessory. Hands down!

If you’re a regular with hairstyles and yet have no clue what a hair mousse can do for your tresses, then girl, you need to replace snooze with mousse. Yes, really! WAKE UP! Because a hair mousse can instantly take your mane from boring to dazzling. It adds volume, texture, definition and gives shape to your curls, all of this without leaving behind any stiff or sticky residue.

If you’ve ever drooled over Deepika Padukone’s bouncy curls or Kareena Kapoor Khan’s tousled hair, then it’s basically a hair mousse doing its job right apart from their skilled hairstylists, of course!

So, if you want to include this magical product in your hairstyling routine too, then here’s a step-by-step guide to help you do just that.

right way to use your hair mousse

Step-by-step guide

Step 1: A stunning hairstyle begins with clean hair. If you want to see great results, then start by washing your hair. Go for a volumising shampoo such as the TIGI Bed Head Fully Loaded Volume Shampoo and follow it up with the TIGI Bed Head Fully Loaded Volume Conditioner. These volumising products will leave your hair looking fuller and more moisturised.

Step 2: Before you hop out of the shower, squeeze out any excess water from your hair by flipping your head over. Now, instead of using a towel, go for a soft cotton T-shirt to pat your hair dry. Doing so will prevent breakage.

Step 3: Depending on the style you wish to go for, set your blow dryer accordingly. If you want a soft, bouncy look, then use a diffuser, whereas, for a sleek look, pop on a concentrator nozzle. The nozzle will help concentrate the airflow directly onto your hair and not blow your strands all over the place.

Step 4: Take a gem-sized amount of hair mousse on your palm and work it through your damp tresses, focusing on the roots. Always remember that when it comes to hair mousse, less is more. Therefore, avoid going overboard. Try the TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling, which helps create texture and hold and defends against frizz and humidity.

Step 5: Now that you’ve already set your blow dryer (see step 3), simply reach for it and work it through your strands. You can either tug outward, back and away from your face with a straight concentrator for a typical blowout, or you can hold the diffuser underneath your curls and blow in an upward direction to define and shape your curls.

Either way, you’re going to step out looking fabulous!
