The Ouai To My (Hair’s) Heart

The lineup

For the past few months I’ve been using the famously awesome Ouai hair products to style my hair, and here’s what I have to say about them: OMG OMG OMG.  Honestly, before this, I didn’t use anything on my hair…I would just curl it with a wand and then once in a while toss on some hairspray if I wanted it to last longer.  I don’t have super thick hair, so products usually weight it down and make it feel greasy to me.  Enter the Ouai…to my heart.  After hearing only rave reviews, I figured it was about time to try it out (plus, I got to hear Jen Atkin speak at an event earlier this year and she was rad…so I had a feeling the products would be, too).

The five products I’ve tried are:

The Ouai’s Wave Spray

The Ouai’s Volume Spray

The Ouai’s Memory Mist

The Ouai’s Dry Texture Foam (new product)

The Ouai’s Matte Pomade

And here’s the 411 according to moi…

Party of five

The Three products I use EVERY TIME I style my hair now:

So I fell in love with three products which are now part of my hair styling ritual.  First of all the Ouai’s VOLUME SPRAY is a game changer for thinner and straighter haired girls.  I spray this on damp hair then either leave it to air dry (most of the time), or blow dry.  When you blow dry the volume effect is extra big, but even with an air dry, it adds a good amount and I’m hyped.

Next, the Ouai’s MEMORY MIST has made my waves such happy campers.  This spray is a heat protectant that also helps lock in your style (for moi, loose beachy waves).  I also find it adds shines and helps you hair look more cohesive and not get strandy as the day goes on.  Keeps the ‘do looking fly all day.

Finally, I add a tiny bit of the Ouai’s MATTE POMADE to the ends of my hair with my fingers.  This adds a little texture and definition to the ends which I’m a fan of.

Pretty and practical

The other two products are more guest stars in my hair’s life but they are awesome nonetheless.

The Ouai’s WAVE SPRAY is my summer lake life and beach life jam.  I spray it in my hair (already styled, or second day hair that’s been styled), when I’m going to be on the water or on the beach all day.  This spray, mixed with the salty air makes me truly have those dope beach waves we all know and love.  Even after a dip in the water, if I spray this, my hair looks so good…it’s truly da best.  Recommend this to straight haired girls who want to get that beach curl on the beach.

The Ouai’s DRY TEXTURE FOAM is my fave thing to use when my hair is a couple days old and I want it to look done.  Rub a pump of this into your hair from bottom to top and then play around with you hair for mega texture and volume.  The more you play with it, the more volume there is, I find.  I love it.  The perfect antidote to flat hair.

Ouai too good <3

There you have it, I’m official ouai into the Ouai’s products.  Honestly, love how they make my hair feel productless (aka not heavy or greasy or crusty) while giving me the results i want.  Plus, they smell great.  The Ouai has tons of products for different hair types, so check them out.  These are what more for me, and I’ve linked them all up above for you babeskillets.  Happy hair styling babeskillets, Tita xx
