Is this a good idea? Has anyone ever tried it? While I was doing a curlformer set with Jane Carter's Wrap and Roll (a foam wrap/mousse) I noticed that it held the form of my stretched hair before I put it in the roller. I wonder if I do my whole head like that and sit under the dryer if it will come out cute. I don't know how crunchy it would be though. Thoughts?

I guess it depends on the type of mousse(I recall there being a mousse out there for textured hair, but no idea what the name was, saw it in a "black hair" magazine once.I guess it depends on the ingredients and consistency) Mousse generally is a no no for hair that isn't very oily naturally as it tends to dry out textured hair, but I guess it's a trial and error thing.
I personally wouldn't recommend it though.

I agree with Ritle, if you're going to use mousse, make sure you mix in a moisturizing oil before putting your hair in the curl formers. Otherwise you might have a lot of crunch action going on.


You'll probably get more responses on this upstairs though.

I'm thinking of doing something similar when I get out my hair lazy rut. I have this product called Curl Up by KMS California. It's a wave foam. I'm going to use it to set my plaitout, but as Ritle+ Skittle and Model stated an oil most definitely should be in the mix to combat the crunchies.

So how did it turn out?  I've tried to use curlformers once and my results weren't great.
