Why this curl-and-wave-enhancing mousse is one of my holy-grail travel items

Dear travel-size John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse: how do I love thee? Let me count the waves. Er – ways.

1) When used on wet hair, you help define my waves and curls (as you should).

2) When I'm having frizz issues, for whatever reason – from not having used enough of you, or from dragging my hands through my hair too often (my waves and curls are fragile; doesn't take much to destroy them) – I can scrunch you into my dry hair to resurrect my wave-and-curl structure.

3) When I apply you to my dry hair to revive my texture as mentioned above, you don't make my hair sticky or crunchy.

4) You seem to be the only curl-enhancing mousse that comes in a travel size. That's one of the best things about you – I don't have to leave you at home.

My love for you, dear travel-size John Frieda Curl Reviver Mousse, is bittersweet however, because you are not available in Canada. *moue*

Yes, I understand that your travel-size dispensing mechanism is so pricey to produce that here, in a country with fewer Curl-Reviver devotées than the US, you would need a retail price tag of $7 CAN. That's almost the same price as a full-sized mousse (210g), except the travel size is just 56g. It's upsetting. Thank goodness I've stocked up on past visits to the US, where you're usually about $4, I think.

I say I think because I can't find you online right now except on, and I'm worried you've been discontinued. And if that's true, what will I do? What?? *sob*

Lovelies, I need your help! If any of you has hair like mine that needs mousse-encouragement to shape itself into curls and waves, what's your travel-sized go-to?
