When I look under my sink at the dozens of hair products that reside there, they fall distinctly into two camps: Volumizers that build overall body and add lift to the roots and Straighteners that tame frizz and add shine. Therein lies the crux of my problem; I like volume but don't want to look dated. I want shine but feel ridiculous with pin straight flat hair. When I have my hair blown out professionally, inevitably that's what I end up with...that is of course, until I had a blow out for an event with Margo Levitin, Senior Stylist at Warren Tricomi, Greenwich, who understands that every now and then a Girl wants Housewife Hair,
It's been a looooong time since anyone used mousse in my hair. Could I recreate any of Margo's magic at home? I can't deny that I did like the volume it provides, but not the tacky dullness. I took a really good look under that sink, and saw an unused can of TRESemme Climate Control Mousse, that I had picked up at the TRESemme booth they sponsor during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. TRESemme's philosophy is to provide women with "Professional, Affordable" hair care...makes sense to me. Infused with keratin and olive oil, could the breakthrough product I have been dreaming about been living right under my nose???
Yup! Created for all hair types, TRESemme Climate Control Mousse was formulated to " lock in moisture, provide UV protection and keep out static and humidity, by creating a barrier between you and the weather". I used only one dollop of mousse, less than the 2 or 3 they recommend. To my delight and amazement, my hair is both full and shiny a true oxymoron. It required zero hair spray and no texturizing putty to keep strays at bay after washing, and nearly zero labor to get it to behave this morning.
I never thought it would be possible to better my best beauty bargain, Smith's Rosebud Salve, which I gifted to my event guests. At $6 bucks a tube or tin, it is the last thing I use under my eyes before shutting them nightly, after applying them to my lips and cuticles. At $3.50 a can, TRESemme Climate Control Mousse, just trumped it...Hey, it's no match for Margo, but nothing ever could.
