Charles Worthington- Salon at Home - Curl definer mousse


With having naturally wavy / curly hair I'm always on the lookout for products that define and hold my curls whilst taking away any frizz.
Without any products at all on my hair it can be quite fluffy and flat which I suppose is ok for a low maintenance day but not when I'm going out.
Some products that I have tried in the past have either made my hair quite hard and crispy or have made no difference at all which is not what I want at all.

I needed a new product to try and got this Charles Worthington - Salon at Home - Curl definer max hold curls definer mousse (Phew that's a long product name- but at least it tells you exactly what it is supposed to be)

Here's what Charle's Worthington Salon at Home state about their product;

"  Perfectly sculpted curls need a helping hand, if they’re to look perfectly groomed, rather than frizzy and tangled. Whether you’re creating bouncy curls, loose waves or tumbling ringlets, the innovative Curl Memory Complex can help your curls form into a natural shape that has clear definition, resulting in a supple, springy, frizz-free style that’s lightly fragranced with a blend of mandarin and blood orange.
 
This non-sticky, weightless formulation works to create bouncy, well-defined curls for any glamorous event. Infused with Rice Curl Complex™, it provides flexible hold, helping to ensure curls stay defined for longer. This mousse also helps to reduce static and control frizz and flyaways, while boosting hair’s overall smoothness and condition. 
 
Charles Worthington Salon at Home – Salon-inspired formulas for hair that’s always in red carpet condition. "

Packaging:
The mousse is in a 200ml metal container with a plastic chunky nozzle and a secure pop-on lid.
You can clearly see the 'Salon at Home' as this is large and would therefore need to recognise this or look closer to know that it is from Charles Worthington as their name has been placed at the top but is very small.
The colour and details on the bottle are very professional and sophisticated.
It's quite tricky to photograph because of the light reflecting properties and although the white font goes much better with the colour scheme than say black, it's hard to read because it hits the light and you have a constant shine on it.

Price:
It retails for £5.99 and you can buy it from Boots here . They currently have an offer for selected Charles Worthington products at 2 for £9.

Performance:
I loved this mousse from the first moment I used it. Like the shampoo and conditioner that I have reviewed from this range it leaves my hair with an impressive shine which my hair can sometimes lack with it being curly and highlighted.
The scent is very professional and it's supposed to be blood orange and mandarin. I love fruity scents, however this smells more floral in my opinion which is not a bad thing as I really like the scent. I would have never guessed at it being fruits.
It really does define my curls and reduces frizz on my hair dramatically. When I used it again yesterday I did notice that a few parts were a bit 'fluffy' but I must have missed putting the product in that area.
I only squeeze the nozzle a little bit as the mousse quickly expands and can cover a large area.
I would also agree that it is very lightweight and it is not sticky in the slightest which is perfect.

I would definitely repurchase this product again.
I am very impressed with this range and would highly recommend it.
