Mousse is generally applied to the roots of damp hair before blow-drying or styling. Mousse may also be used to add definition to curls or to add texture to hair for a beach-blown effect.

Pomade

Pomade is a water-based or oil-based designed product to have that slick-looking hairstyle.

Unlike hairspray & gels, pomade will last longer and will not dry out, but pomade will take a few washers to get out, you will need a heavier shampoo & deep cleansing conditioners to remove this product.

Hair and body care. 

Hairspray is a household solution that is to stiffen the hair into a certain style. Hairspray was manufactured back in 1948 by Chase Products.

Hairspray will hold that style in place, but hairspray is not as strong as wax or gel.

You can remove hairspray from your hair by simply brushing it out, by brushing out the hairspray will break down the stiffness of the hair.

The ingredients in hairspray are polymers which will keep the hair stiff for a period of time.

Hairspray’s today have solvents such as alcohols and hydrocarbons that are safer for our environment, early hairspray’s had CFC’S ( chlorofluorocarbon ) which was no good for the ozone.

Other than polymers used in hairsprays is polyvinylpyrrolidone which is water-soluble.

Some hairsprays use natural polymers and solvents like vegetable gums dissolved in alcohol, one of the ingredients in natural hairspray are gum arabic, which comes from the sap of an acacia tree.
