Ouai 'Dry Shampoo Foam' Review

Ouai 'Dry Shampoo Foam' Review

I would just like to say that I never write these reviews lightly. What I write is actually how I feel about a product. If I was ever gifted a product, please know that I will give full disclosure. 

But I digress. 

I have black Asian hair. 

And because of that, I haven't found a good dry shampoo that works well for me. Well, except for Drybar's Detox Dry Shampoo. That one actually works, but for the amount you get, and how much you need to use, it wasn't worth it for me in the long run. 

Anyway, I am pretty picky with something like dry shampoo.

I don't want a powdery scalp (Bumble & Bumble Pret a Powder). I also don't want to scratch my head and then get powder in my nails (Batiste Dry Shampoo - Brunettes). I also can't do a crazy pungent smell (Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo). 

So when I heard about this product, I wanted to try it. 

And I can't tell you how glad I am that I did. 

But let's just get into the review. 

It's a thick mousse - like twice as thick as regular hair mousse. 

The first thing I noticed is that the mouse is almost like a thick cream. It definitely requires some effort to work it into your scalp.

It will give your hair a wet look for awhile. 

Initially I was worried about this, but after about 10 minutes, the wet look died down and it became just dry hair. So this definitely isn't a product that you can just put on as you are walking out of the house, but needs at least 20 minutes of prep/dry time. 

 The day I wore this product, on 3rd day hair.

It works, for more than just the typical 12 hour day. 

What surprised me the most is that after the 12 hour day I had, where I would flip my hair constantly (like no joke), my hair was still fresh and non-oily after I woke up the next morning,

Your hair looks, feels, and smells refreshed. 

I cannot stress this enough actually. Your hair feels soft at the roots, and the smell is so faint that you actually have to look for it. Plus, it looks great in photos, and in the mirror. I've never been able to flip my hair for an entire day and not get oily fingers. 

No pungent smell - just a nice waft. 

I already touched on this, but this, for me, is super important. 

Even after an entire day, I could smell a faint smell on my hair, and I love that. 

Gym proof. 

Okay, totally not kidding. I put some on before I went to the gym and tied my hair up. When I came back and let my hair loose, it looked as good as new (of course, I would've had to style it, but other than that it looked as good as new). 

I swear this is my honest opinion. 

I know, when I write/read such positive glowing reviews I get super suspicious, but this product is definitely as good as expected. 

If you have Asian hair, or non-Asian hair, and you have been looking for the dry shampoo of your dreams, this is honestly it. 

Yes, it is quite expensive, but because you don't really need a lot, this product will actually last you awhile. 

What is your favorite hair product?
