Haircare Advice



I want to start taking care of my wavy/potentially curly hair. I have a hair mouse and I've hair a diffuser is necessary. Before implementing it, I wanted to know how long I could leave the product in my hair before it was potentially damaging. Also, do I need to put on a heat protectant before diffusing? 


Please let me know and thank you!

Re: Haircare Advice

I've decided to embark on a journey to take better care of my wavy/potentially curly hair. I have a hair mousse and plan to use a diffuser for styling. Before diving in, I wanted to gather some important information regarding product duration and heat protection.

I'd like to know how long I can leave the hair mousse in my hair before it potentially becomes damaging. Understanding the ideal duration for leaving the product in my hair will help me avoid any negative effects.

@kizaaa , Manes by Mel posted a video of her styling a wavy hair client using Verb Curl Foaming Gel 6.7 oz / 200 mL . You may find it helpful.

Thank you so much!! 

Re: Haircare Advice


If you are concerned about mousse damaging your hair, you can go with an alcohol free one. 

Re: Haircare Advice

@kizaaa mousse is a styling product that doesnโ€™t get washed out of your hair. Try scrunching it in prior to diffusing. Once the weather gets warmer you may want to air dry your hair. 

Re: Haircare Advice

Hi, does this mean that itโ€™s harder to wash out mouse? Iโ€™ve also recently bought the Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream . Is this a better alternative?

Re: Haircare Advice

None of the products are harder to wash out than the other @kizaaa. You need to experiment with your stylers to see which ones give you the results you are hoping to achieve. 
You may want to watch some videos. I regularly watch videos from Manes by Mel and Swavy Wavy Courtney. Google curly hairstyles and you may find someone that you can learn from.

Re: Haircare Advice

Hi! I find that leaving in mousse for any period of time wonโ€™t damage hair. Also personally I donโ€™t use a heat protectant for diffusing.
