1. TRESemmé Volume and Lift Mousse

Thickening mousse products should give you natural-looking hair that isn’t stiff or weighed down – which is why we recommend trying the TRESemmé Volume and Lift Mousse for hair that tends to be limp or lack body.

Styling tip: Using a thickening mousse to plump up curly hair? Try the scrunching technique when applying the product, as this will help accentuate your curls.


2. Bed Head Rockaholic Amped Up Volumizing Mousse

After long-lasting volume and enviable hair texture? Then you’ll love the Bed Head Rockaholic Amped Up Volumizing Mousse! This nifty thickening mousse contains a style-setting polymer along with conditioning and moisturising properties, which all work to give your strands major lift with a strong hold.

3. VO5 Big Volume Mousse

Looking to create big volume to your fine tresses, but also want to protect your hair from heat? Then we suggest using the VO5 Big Volume Mousse on clean, towel-dried hair, dispersing the product from root to tip before blow-drying.

Top tip: When searching for the best mousse for thin hair, look out for labels such as “lightweight” and “volumising”, as these will be formulated with fine hair in mind.

4. TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse

Not only for creating Victoria’s Secret-style volume, hair mousse is perfect for styling updos that need hold and definition. And thanks to the root-targeting nozzle on the TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousseit allows you to build body, bounce and movement where you want it most.

Styling tip: Remember to use a hairdryer to activate all mousse products, especially if you want to avoid crisp-feeling strands (not nice).


5. VO5 Extra Body Mousse

The weightless formula from the VO5 Extra Body Mousse gives you perfect control, body and volume, with all the lift you want. Plus, with 24-hour humidity protect, you will be saying hello to frizz-free hair with natural shine in no time.

Styling tip: For a less messy way to use a hair mousse, try applying a golf ball sized amount on to a brush or comb and pull it through your hair.
