Umberto Giannini Shapely Curls Mousse | Review

Friday, 27 September 2013


Hello girlies! Recently, I've been wearing my hair curly a lot more than usual as I'm trying to slowly cut back on the straighteners before I get my hair cut as I want to put some colour into my hair, so want it to be as healthy as possible. My hair is typically quite wild and can sometimes get very very frizzy so some soft of styling product related specifically to curls is always needed to keep my mane looking a bit tamer and not so crazy. Over the years I've tried hundreds of curly hair products from serums, to mouse to curl creams but this time I thought I would give moose another go. 

I used to love my Redken 'fresh curls' moose but unfortunately I can't find any shops that stock the mouse anymore and while I was mooching around Boots the other day I spotted that they had an offer on hair products so I thought it was time for a new curl tamer. 

I picked up the Umberto Giannii Curl Friends 'Shapely Curl Mousse' mainly because I liked the packaging, probably not the best way to judge a product but sometimes you can't help reading a book by its cover. I did originally want to get some of the new Toni & Guy hair products but they didn't have one for curls so Umberto Giannini it is! 

This mousse is designed to define, hold, separate and control even the most delicate of curls and so far so good with me. It's no miracle worker and I do still have the odd crazy curl, but for the most part it keeps them in check without weighing them down so I still have big bouncy curls. The one thing I do love about this product is that you can't feel it on your hair. I have tried countless curl products which have made my curls go really hard or sticky and it really puts me off using the product as I do want my hair to look natural. 

If any of you have any recommendations for curly hair products I'd love to know as I can never seem to find that one miracle worker, but for now this does the job nicely!

  2. I so rarely use hair styling products I wouldn't even know where to begin with them, but since I've been looking for something to make the curls last when I heat style this might be just the thing :O). Xx

    1. A mousse is a great way to hold your curls and as it's quite light I think it would be great for you if your not used to using hair styling products! xx

  3. I've tried mousse before but it never holds in my hair, I find the Sea Salt spray works well but I may try this out as it sounds great x

    1. I've never tried sea salt spray as I'm scared it will turn my curls into waves but I really want to get some before I go away next summer so I can have beachy curls xx

  6. I have natural curly hair and I currently use Garnier Fructis Styling Mousse with bamboo extract. It helps my curls to stay in place and I love it. I don't know whether you can get it still, as I got mine yonks ago but worth the look! :) xx
