So if you’ve been following me on insta @taraleydon for a while it’s no secret OUAI is my favorite hair care line. Though I’ve used many different hair lines over the years and I do still have some other favorites outside of OUAI, it’s the only hair line that I’ve not only constantly loved every product they’ve produced but it’s also the only line that I can wash and style my hair with from beginning to end with products all from the same line. Even though I can honestly say I love every product from OUAI, here is a list of my favorite and everyday go-to products.
I first wash my hair with the Volume Shampoo; my roots can sometimes be a bit flat and the Volume Shampoo gives my hair that extra boost it needs. All of OUAI’s shampoos and conditioners are water based so they don’t weigh down your hair or leave any sort of residue or buildup. So many hair products have plastics and fillers in them that are not only horrible for your hair but also so bad for you and your scalp.
I then use the Smooth Conditioner, even though I have thick hair my actual strands of hair are thin, therefore I can get a lot of flyaways and frizziness in the humidity. The Smooth conditioner tames my flyaways and reduces any frizz I may have. This conditioner is also light weight and non-greasy.
After I’ve finished washing my hair I use the hair oil. You only need 1 pump; I mainly use it on the ends of my hair and any leftover oil I distribute through the rest of my hair. The hair oil was the first product I tried from OUAI, I was originally drawn to the packaging and I loved the smell of it. It still might be my favorite OUAI product; it’s hard to choose just one! I then spray the Volume Spray into the roots of my hair and a bit throughout the rest of my hair. I was so impressed at how much more volume I got in my hair after the first time I used it, I haven’t dared not using it since.
After I’ve blown dry and styled my hair I use the Finishing Cream, I just rub a dime size drop into the palms of my hands and I start from the bottom and work my way up to the top. The finishing Cream also gets rid of any stray hairs or flyaways I may have. I then spray my hair with the Memory Mist section by section before waving my hair; this product has easily become one of my new favorite products. It protects hair up to 450 degrees so I can style my hair without the guilt. Also, I seriously love the smell, I’ve used it as a body spray : ) I mean lets be real, if you’ve tried anything from OUAI I don’t know how you couldn’t be obsessed with the way all the products smell! Besides it smelling amazing, I love how this product holds my style, it makes styling my hair the next day so much easier. Instead of having to start from scratch I can just touch up my waves.
I finish with the Texturizing Hair Spray, it holds my style without it leaving my hair feeling stiff or crunchy. The next day if my hair is starting to get a bit oily I just spray a bit of the Dry Shampoo into the roots of my hair and rub it in. That usually brings my hair back to life.
If you already use OUAI, I’m sure you love it as much as me and if you haven’t I 100% recommend it and hope you love it as much as I do. It’s defiantly a #TLbeautypick !
