Ouai Haircare: First Impressions

Ouai Haircare First impressions

There hasn't been a haircare launch that's caused as much stir in the blogging world as Ouai has for as long as I can remember. Regardless of the fact that it's the brainchild of the Kardashian's hairdresser Jen Atkins, this is a brand that deserves all the praise it has garnered.

My mid-length fine locks don't get much styling, it has to be said. Coupled with time constraints and my hair's inability to do what it's told, I've long given up hope that I can create something worth the hassle. I've read so many glowing reviews of the styling products from Ouai, so I thought I'd try them out myself to see if they could do anything to help my flat and free-flowing locks.

As my hair is ultra fine and mainly straight, I'm always keen to give it a little oomph where I can. Ouai Wave Spray somehow manages to do exactly just that. This is one I reserve for day two hair, and a couple of spritzes is all it take to the lengths, which I then twist up in a bun and leave for an hour or so to do it's magic. Once the bun is removed I'm left with natural looking waves and texture, which is more than I've ever hoped my fine hair could have. I'm yet to try the Ouai Wave Spray on wet hair and style it, as I tend to wash my hair in the evening so it would be a little wasted. I find that as long as I twist my hair around and around before shoving it up in a bun, the waves look defined but yet messy, and the hold is pretty darn good too. If you're going to pick anything up from Ouai, this is the one. It's formulated with rice protein instead of salt like most products in this category, and I find there's no sticky residue or crispy hair to be seen. Don't be tempted to go crazy with it though, a little is more than enough.

For days where I want my hair to be a little more polished and glossy I've been reaching for Ouai Finishing Creme instead. This is one to apply to the lengths of dry hair, and it absolutely transforms my hair. I don't know quite what it does, but it's a step I now can't miss on freshly washed hair. It gives my hair the most gorgeous sheen  - which is hard to achieve on colour treated strawberry blonde hair. I also find it gives a little bit of hold and body, and so will enhance any natural wave your hair has. Ouai Finishing Creme also protects against heat, UV rays and pollution, so there's really not much it can't do! The most similar product I've found to this in the past is Bumble & Bumble Brilliantine, but Ouai's offering feels completely undetectable in the hair and it's more luxe feeling and effective in my opinion. This, like all Ouai products has the most gorgeous scent, which really lasts in my hair and is somewhat addictive.

For me, these two picks from Ouai are the ultimate lazy girl hair staples, and you never know, I might  actually get to the end of the bottles for once.

Have you tried anything from Ouai yet?
