Styling Products:    Make up a group of hair products uses to Aid you in Styling your hair. They come in a variety of forms with different methods of application. Folks use many different words like goop, gel, cream (also spelled creme), mousse, etc. to refer to the secret potion that helps them get "the look" they want with less effort. Styling Aids wash out each time you shampoo. You condition your hair, towel  dry your hair and use the remaining water to help your spread the styling aid evenly throughout you hair, and / or on to the hair roots.

The holding ability of the styling aid is rated  form 1 to 10. This rating is called the Hold Factor. A hold factor of 1 indicates the product has the same holding strength as water (using nothing). Hold Factor 10 has 10 times the strength of water. If you have plenty of strength and volume, and you don't want to add any more (strength or volume) to your hair, but you want assistance with another problem (like eliminating frizz, or dryness or split ends) then,  a styling aid with a hold factor of 1 would be great for your hair as long as the product helped you with the target problem.

Mousse: taken from the French word meaning foam - someone took a hard hold gel that was hard to spread around and "foamed it up" to make it easier to apply evenly throughout the hair. Then named it Mousse, or foam in French like, "chocolate mousse.". Now available in varying holds from mild through strong to Extra Strong. Unlike other products in jars, Mousse also ensures that the user does not contaminate the product - put simply you don't put your fingers into the mousse can and leave anything behind.

Gel, styling gel and creams, and finishing creams offer a variety of products for folks who need some holding power but not quite as much as mousse.

Hair Spray:  We consider Hair Spray as a separate category see Hair Spray
