Join The OUAI Wave
I discovered the celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin on instagram some time last year of 2015 and I have been loving her feed ever since! She makes hair styles look so effortless, not to mention that her hair tutorials are also made simple for people like me (who ends up throwing my hair into some sort of bun/ponytail). From long to short, thick and thin, or even unwashed hair, she has got me covered! When I heard that she was coming out with her own hair care line, I was super excited and couldn't wait to see what she's been cookin' up in the lab.
Keeping in mind that there are so many different hair care lines out there, I made sure to read about each and every product before purchasing because I like to invest in hair products that I feel will make a difference and pretty much change the game for me...& I wanted everything!
Let's be Rheal, I have really thin hair that gets oily at the end of the day AND I choose not to wash all my natural oils from my hair daily because I don't want to strip my hair dry. So, you can probably imagine all the dry shampoo's and texturizing spray's I've tried in most forms.
The OUAI Dry Shampoo Sec smells so fresh and airy (as described on the bottle) and it leaves no white powdery looking spots! Sometimes, I don't want to throw my hair up so I'll use this Dry Shampoo at the crown of my head onto the roots of my hair and then I'll fluff it up a bit with my fingertips. I love that this product works to minimize oil and that it doesn't leave my hair feeling gunky a.k.a. product build up.
The OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray is awesome for before curls, and this is what I use to give me that messy ponytail. I love me a messy ponytail for concerts or a night out because I love to get down, dance, & whip my ponytail around! What I'll do is I'll grab a medium- sized section of my hair and slowly let strands of hair go, while spraying the Texturzing Hair Spray at the same time. A little goes a long way, so I try not to get too crazy with it.
Last but not least, the OUAI Wave Spray has got to be my favorite product from the line! I have tried nothing like this, and I'm glad this was the first item I added to my cart. The first time I gave this a go, my hair was combed out and air drying and for some reason I really like how the body of my hair looks before it completely air dries so I spritzed the Wave Spray in hoping it would hold. As I was spraying it in each section of my hair, I was scrunching my hair up with the palms of my hands from the ends of my hair to about my roots. I flipped my hair, tousled it and voila! It gave me the most tasteful wavy hair, and it stood up to everything I expected it would be. I will say though that I'm not too fond of the scent, but I can look past that because who doesn't like a good messy hair day?!
