Curly Girl Product Review: Design Essentials Mousse

Right after having my hair cut I realized that I would have to change up my curly girl hair routine just a tad. Ponytails and buns are a thing of the past and I was forced to find another go to.

My stylist who cut my hair (@onyestles) recommended the below and it is THE only product I use to style my hair.

Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse

Product Details:

Introducing our NEW and Improved Design Essentials® Natural Almond & Avocado  Curl Enhancing Mousse! This formula has been enhanced with Sweet Almond Oil and Avocado extracts for even more long lasting moisture and shine. Our Curl Enhancing Mousse is strategically infused with Olive Oil and Vitamin B Complex to define, polish, and seal every strand for long-lasting styles. Olive Oil provides curl quenching moisture and allows luminous shine to enhance every strand, while Vitamin B Complex increases your hairs strength and elasticity to promote healthy hair growth. This formula is essential for waves, curls, and coily textures seeking no frizz, no sticky reside, and no crunch during natural styling! •

  • Provides curl defining memory with soft-pliable hold •
  • Dries quickly and reduces frizz •
  • Delivers a gorgeous natural sheen •


This unique formula has a soft-pliable hold, dries quickly, and reduces frizz while giving off a gorgeous, natural sheen. Our mousse defines curls when it comes to rocking wash-and-go looks, roller sets, flexi-rods and twist-sets.

How I Use:

After shampoo & conditioner or co-wash, I like to part my hair in small sections for better definition of curls. I apply the mousse to the roots of my hair and use a small tooth comb to cover my hair with the product. As I go through each section I make sure to keep each previous section separate from the other. I DO NOT comb the sections together to reduce frizz and increase curl definition.

When I have finished, I sit under the dryer for 30-45 minutes. This style will last me for 2 weeks even with gym time.






PS- you can find this mousse at Wal-Mart, Sally beauty supply,  and Wal-Greens.
