It has the perfect amount of hold and is re-workable over and over again. Through the incredibly fine mist there is no white, dulling residue left on the hair. Elnett is also great at providing a light barrier over the hair to prevent static.
The smallest amount will give texture and shine to long or short hair and provide nourishing moisture to dry and parched hair too. It conditions and is absorbed by the hair so it doesn’t get greasy and can be re-applied. With no hair-holding ingredients, it is non-sticky and perfect for today’s modern hairstyles.
It helps eliminate greasy roots and builds body. Dry shampoo is very good on clean, slippery and static hair, giving plenty of guts and oomph. Coloured dry shampoo stops the usual white, dusty, Elizabethan look and can even help hide roots that are overdue.
It protects the hair from the sun, sea salt and chlorine in swimming pools and I use it as a styling product to provide a wet look texture or for giving hair a sleek pulled back look in a ponytail or bun. It provides high shine and is good for taming thick frizzy hair types.
Hair mousse is often associated with big 80s unfashionable hair. It’s considered sticky and something your mum used. It is always my base product when prepping hair on photoshoots. This mousse is light but still builds good body into the hair. On freshly-washed hair the mousse helps it feel more like the second day after washing (generally the hair settles down on day two, is less slippery and less static). Depending on the hair I sometimes double prep with mousse, by rough-drying and reapplying mousse again before styling.
