A foamy white substance that comes from a can like whipped cream. It usually has no smell but can sometimes smell sweet and flowery. It can be used on wet or dry hair, to minimize poof and if used in a large quantity, can produce the effect of crunchy, shiny, wet-looking curls. Using mousse has many different names, such as scrunching, moussing, or sponging. Used very widely by Latinas.
