Urban Fudge Iced Raspberry and Vanilla Styling Hair Mousse

I have to be honest with you - for the last couple of months I have had a secret weapon, a secret hair weapon.  Yep that's right while a lot of you have been struggling with Monica style frizz during our recent stint of heat my hair was looking rather brilliant.  OK so it didn't look brilliant ever day but when I put in a bit of effort and that effort included Urban Fudge Iced Raspberry and Vanilla Styling Hair Mousse*.  

If like me you lived thought the spiral perms of the 90ies (I never got one - just to clarify) you would be slightly terrified of hair mousse - so much product was used and hair was so dried out that it looked like you could snap off a spiral curl with a quick crunch.  If I am being honest the whole time left me terrified of hair products.  ABSOLUTELY FRICKIN TERRIFIED.  My hair care included shampoo, conditioner and some Orofluido that was basically it. 

Honestly I wanted to try this because it smells amazing but not in an overpowering "you have a bowl of fruit on your head" kinda way, I like the idea of my hair having a scent but not one that enters the room before me.  When I have a bit of time I like to curl my hair using my beloved Tigi curling wand so I decided to test Urban Fudge out.  I used a liberal amount of the mousse in my hair (I have a lot of hair) and gave my hair a rough blow dry.  The mousse creates a slight slip to the hair.  Then I went on and curled my hair.  I usually find that when I curl my hair I get more time between washes but with the heat and humidity I wasn't expecting anything.

So - this is not my hair after I have freshly done it - its TWO DAYS in.  That's right two days after curing my hair using Urban Fudge my hair looks really well and this was during the crazy heat we had.  What I find even better than the hold the mousse gives is the fact that my hair is soft and you can run your hands through it (seriously if you meet me come up and ill let you).  The mousse is also a heat protectant which is great because I don't like to use too much heat on my hair (come on now, its already highlighted it doesn't need more torture) and it also means I don't have to use a separate heat protectant product.  

I have used Urban Fudge with my sleep in rollers and it does give you good hold but also a slight mousse crunch.  The product really works best when used with heat.

Urban Fudge ICED RASPBERRY & VANILLA STYLING MOUSSE is available now and costs €7.99
