Mousse From The Hair Gods


I’m not usually a big mousse fan (except for lemon, with whipped cream), but Edwin Paul's Gel Mousse (pictured to the left) is different than any other mousse I’ve ever tried.

You know how some men use that green gel-that-turns-to-foam to shave with?

Well, this Gel Mousse does the same kind of thing (and you could probably shave with it, too); just a tiny blob of gel turns into a handful of foam.


Use a dime-sized blob of gel to produce a nice mound of mousse. Apply to damp hair and style with comb or fingers.


Edwin Paul Gel Mousse comes in clean white plastic container, with crisp black lettering.


This smells wonderful, and you can see why when you take a look at the ingredients. You can especially smell the kiwi and awapuhi, and it scents your hair with a sweet yet elusive fragrance.

How I Tested This Product

As I said, I’m not usually crazy about mousses, but this one is pretty neat.

After washing my hair, I towel-dried it, then applied the mousse. All I did was style my hair with my fingers, and let it air dry. (Did I mention that this product is alcohol-free? That’s good news for hair because it’s less drying.)

My usual routine in the morning is to shower, do my hair, have breakfast, then do my makeup and get dressed. This all gives my hair time to dry.

By the time I was dressed, made up, and accessorized, I was pleasantly surprised to see how soft and pizzazz-y my hair looked.

Who knew a mousse could work this well?

Allow me a second on my soapbox—there are so many hair products out on the marketplace today that make thin hair look thick, but few that really do the job on thick hair.

Some products supposedly for thick hair merely weigh the hair down, giving you the hated Helmet Head. Edwin Paul Gel Mousse gave my hair the lift it needed, and a lot of shine as well.


Extract of awapuhi, aloe vero, passionfruit, mango and kiwi, PVP/VA copolymer, isopentane, isobutene, polyquarternium-28, oleth-20, hydrolyzed whole wheat protein, panthenol, sodium PCA, dimethicone copolyol, benzophene-3 [sunscreen], DEA-methoxycinnamate [sunscreen], sodium-carbomer 940, tetrasodium EDTA, methylparaben, diazolidinyl urea, and fragrance.


This is an excellent mousse! I recommend it for most hair types, even thick hair. Guess this will teach me to keep an open mind!

Jane's Rating

On my own scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, I give Edwin Paul Gel Mousse a big 9.

Hair Boutique Note

Most foam mousses on the market today are drying, but to put a mousse in the form of a gel means that rich conditioners are included. Natural botanicals like Awapuhi, Aloe Vera, Kiwi, Mango, and Passionfruit work your hair into luxurious volume, body and shine. Alcohol free and light enough to never weigh hair down, Gel Mousse is unique.

The Edwin Maul Gel Mousse includes a special sunscreen to protect your hair from the ravages of the sun.

The entire line of Edwin Paul hair care products will be available in the Hair Boutique's Marketplace by the middle of April 2000. Be sure to check for our special offerings of sample products.

Daily Hair Tip
Choose a hairstyle that specifically suits your face shape, hair type, texture and lifestyle. Never choose a hairstyle for a popular celebrity or for the hair trend of the moment. Celebrity and fashion hair styles change rapidly leaving you with yesterday's style.
