Once I received my first flat iron, my curls became a secret and mousse joined blueberry-scented glitter as a never-to-be-used again product of my past.
Until recently, that is. At an event hosted by one of my most trusted haircare brands, Oribe, I listened as hairstylist Adam Livermore gushed about the brands' new line of mousses. "Oh no, not this stuff again," I thought to myself. But after a blowout made not crunchy or slimy, but glamorous and bouncy by Oribe's Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse, I walked out a convert.
It's not mousse as we all (try not to) remember it. It gives your hair everything you want-texture, lift, protection from humidity and environmental stressors-all without weighing hair down. Really.
