Yarok Feed Your Roots Mousse

Usually I can't be bothered with heat styling my hair, so I end up air drying it most days.  Luckily my hair isn't too fussy, so the only thing I have to worry about is controlling frizz.  Argan oil does a good job on the ends, but I'm reluctant to bring it up too high, since it can make my hair feel dirty faster.  This led me to Yarok Feed Your Roots, which I first learned about from The Glamorganic Goddess.  I've been wanting to try it ever since her review, but for whatever reason, I held off.  I recently picked up the trial/travel size and let me just say, I'm sorry I waited so long! 

Product Description
Now there’s a way to transform thin, limp, damaged or lifeless hair into voluminous, healthy hair. Feed it what it needs, wants and craves at the roots, and watch it flourish and lead a much fuller life.  Raise your hair to new heights with Yarok Feed Your Roots while you lower your carbon footprint with this 100% vegan, cruelty free, all-natural eco-luscious mousse for all hair types.  Use on wet hair before blow-drying to protect from heat styling and to create volume, or on dry hair to enhance volume and styling potential. Apply a golf-ball size amount of mousse to the palm of your hand or a comb and massage into the roots and throughout your hair.

My Thoughts
Ironically, for a product called Feed Your Roots, I actually apply very little of this to my roots or scalp.  Instead, I like to use it to scrunch my curls.  While my hair is damp, I usually use 3-4 pumps on the length and maybe 1-2 near the scalp, if I feel like I need extra volume.  Feed Your Roots isn't the dense, thick aerosol foam you might expect from a hair mousse.  Instead, it comes in a foamer bottle and is about the same consistency as a foaming hand soap.  What I love about this product is how it adds definition to my curls without leaving them feeling at all crunchy or sticky.  My hair feels soft and doesn't feel coated with product.  Since it doesn't give a firm hold, my curls do fall a little by the second day, but the mousse also works to refresh them.  I'll add a couple more pumps to dry hair, re-scrunch and be good to go.

Probably my favourite thing about this mousse is the smell.  It has a nice lemon scent that reminds me of lemon cake, and the best part?  Once it's on my hair, I don't smell it at all!  Don't get me wrong, I genuinely like the scent, but I'm one of those people who absolutely can't stand hair products that leave you catching a whiff of them every time you move your head.  Even if it's a scent I originally like, inevitably I can't stand it after a couple days of constantly smelling it.

The Score
 9/10 (Subtracting one point for how my curls fall out by the second day) 

The Bottom Line
LOVE.  I initially purchased the smaller, 2 ounce size, and I can tell you right now, I'll definitely be buying the larger one.  (Also, can I just mention how fantastic it is that there are smaller sizes to test drive first!)  Feed Your Roots is exactly what I was looking for in a hair product - it controls frizz, defines my curls, and gives a light to medium hold without any sticky or crunchy feeling.  I'm curious about the rest of the line now and I can say with certainty that Yarok is a brand I'll be keeping my eye on!
