This Texturising Hair Spray is the first and only product I’ve tried so far from Ouai, the brand created by Kardashian’s hair stylist, Jen Atkin. At full price, it is £22.
Firstly, I must mention how much I like the branding and packaging, it’s pretty and minimalist and very photo-friendly.
One of my main problems with my hair is flatness because of how straight and heavy it is. I was hoping a product like this could create some texture, volume and give it some tousled waviness that looked effortless and in fact required minimal effort. Unfortunately I didn’t find it did much at all.
It gave some grip and texture, which is especially appreciated on freshly washed hair, but nothing much more than I can get from a Batiste dry shampoo. I tried spraying it on my hair with my head flipped upside down hoping for volume but any volume was short-lived. I tried scrunching it a bit but my hair stayed as straight as ever. I always used it on dry hair which I think is what you’re supposed to do rather than on wet or damp hair…
The positives of this product are that it has a nice scent: fresh, luxurious and not like your typical hair spray. Also, it never ruined my hair after use because its light, fine mist doesn’t leave any residue or heaviness, meaning you can brush through your hair and not feel like your hair needs a wash! As someone who likes to go 4-5 days between hair washes this is important.
Priced at £22 I don’t really think this is worth the money. Having said that, I still did like it and would possibly buy it again as a treat. But really, I can get the same effect from a trusty can of Batiste. The upper hand this has on Batiste is that it is so light and leaves no residue. For me though, that’s not worth the extra £20!
