The water in Paris is notoriously harsh on skin and hair, so lately I’ve been doubling-up on all my research of beauty and hair products. I haven’t jumped on the Ouai bandwagon until recently, and now I get why I’m totally late to the party. The products work well (more on that below), but the smell is really the MVP.
It’s a dry foam, super easy to use, and smells amazing. Unlike a spray, you massage this product into your scalp. It starts out feeling a little damp, but starts to dry very quickly. It doesn’t give as much volume as my go-to brand (Dove), but it doesn’t leave behind any residue or buildup. Sometimes after using a spray dry shampoo, my hair looks a little gray in color and feels brittle. In contrast, Ouai’s product leaves your hair feeling naturally soft.
I love anything that gives my hair texture without feeling like traditional hair spray. With this spray, I brush my hair all over post-blowdry to make sure its tangle free. I then mist the product from the top down. After, I use hot styling tools like my straightner or curling wand to complete.
With this mist, my hair still has the “run-my-fingers-through-it” feasibility, but the style stays for most of the day. All the stick, none of the crunch. Plus, it smells just as good as the dry shampoo.
You can find my other favorite hair products in my Hair Holy Grail Shop here. Hope you guys are prepping for a great Thanksgiving week! I’m having a Friends-giving feast this Thursday with other American classmates since I can’t be with my family back in the US. Follow along on my Instagram stories for more BTS of my first Thanksgiving in Paris!
