What Is Hair Mousse?

Hair mousse is a foamy volumizing product that comes in an aerosol can and comes out in cloud-like puffs that work into your roots to volumize your hair while still leaving it soft and silky. This product is excellent for people with fine hair that tends to lay flat. It boosts the hair starting at the roots and keeps your hair looking glamorous and full all day long.

The History of Hair Mousse

The word mousse means “foam” in French, so it is fitting that this popular hair product was invented in France and has a creamy, foam-like consistency. This product is thought to be a miracle for flat, fine hair and is used by both men and women to boost their volume. This innovative product made its way to the United States of America in 1983, where it was introduced in salons across the country.

During this same time, hairspray was all the rage, and hairdos were constantly competing to be the largest style. However, at the time, hairspray was extremely stiff and left your hair immovable, crunchy, and dry. When mousse was first introduced, it was the only product that could give your hair larger than life volume while still leaving it soft to the touch.

Everyone was so obsessed with mousse when it first debuted that The New York Times dubbed 1985 the year of Mousse Mania. It was the hot new hair styling product, and everyone wanted it. Nowadays, hair mousse is a common hair care staple for many people. Plus, the technology has continued to advance, and now mousse works better to volumize and is softer than ever.
