I met my beauty blogging guru, Tine from Beautyholics Anonymous, a few weeks ago and not only did she pass on words of beauty blogging wisdom, but she also passed me some hair products to use.  I started using Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Mousse a few weeks ago and I think I am in love!!

What Herbal Essences Say

Toussle Me Softly is a new Herbal Essences collection.  My mousse feels like foam and controls like a gel, whipping up loose waves and helping give frizz the kiss-off.  I’m a lightweight, so I’ll help you avoid sticky situations and leave you with a soft head.  I set the stage for a head that’s anything but crunchy, and I have a fabulous violet splash fragrance to boot!

My Thoughts

It’s been a long time since I used mousse on my hair.  I used to be a big fan of it in my teenage years in the 90’s (yes, I am THAT old!)  I remember back in those days, mousse used to make my hair sticky and create dandruff – so NOT attractive!  Thus, I was slightly apprehensive about using Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Mousse for the first time.

When I cracked open the bottle and sprayed some mousse onto my hand, I was hooked already.  The smell is amazeballs (youth speak for “amazing” – it’s my new favourite word and it makes me feel young when I use it!).  I am not very good at describing smells so either you’ll have to pop to the nearest stockist and give it a whiff or grab me and smell my gorgeous hair!

The mousse itself is pretty impressive too and it’s a sturdy ball of foam which does not deflate easily.  It’s got a slight bounce to it; yet it does not leave sticky or crunchy residue in hair – fantastic!!!

I like to whack it on after I wash my hair and scrunch it up when using the hairdryer to dry my hair.  To be honest, the mousse doesn’t really give me any tousles because I had my hair permanently straightened in January.  But I like to put it in my hair because it smells divine and gives a bit of volume to my hair at the roots.  I am sure that it is capable of creating sexy bedhead waves in unprocessed hair.

Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Mousse is amazeballs!  (Cool, I’ve used that word twice now!)  In the Toussle Me Softly range, there’s shampoo, conditioner, hair gel and finishing cream too.  Must get my paws on these ASAP!
