Beauty on a Budget: John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse

While I love getting dolled up, I’m a total sucker for beauty shortcuts – a cute up-do to cut down on primp time, a tinted moisturizer to get bronzed and moisturized in one step, a quick highlight shadow under your eyebrows to give them better shape when you’re due for a wax. So on days when I just don’t have the time or energy to do my hair, I let it be curly. I’ve tried so many different mousses, gels, and sprays and my favorite has to be John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse for Curly Styles. Of course, you need to have a natural curl to your hair for this to work as well for you as it does to me. If so, it’ll likely be the last styling mousse you’ll need to try.
What this mousse does so well is create the perfect texture for my hair. Other products have made my hair so stiff or too limp, but this one puts the perfect amount of hold on my curls without weighing them down or making them look crunchy. My hair is left with the ideal amount bounce that I’ve searched high and low for. Since I have layers throughout my hair, a curly look tends to work well on days I don’t feel like doing a real hairstyle.
Here is exactly how I use this mousse: I apply it right on my wet hair – I do not towel dry at all. Then after combing it out, I shake out my hair to get it more piecey. Once it looks like the natural curls are sort of coming out, I flip my head and apply one big dollop of mousse, scrunching my hair up. Last, I play around with it a bit more with my head upright and voila! It won’t look like much until it dries, but this is my tried and true lazy hair look. The whole thing takes around 5 minutes.
And my favorite part: the price! One bottle will cost you $5.99 at drug stores. Admittedly, you may need to restock on this product more than with some of my other favorite beauty buys, but it is well worth it. Especially with summer approaching, this will give you those perfect beachy curls. Happy styling!
