Hi readers! As anticipated, this year is flying by already. I have an exciting yet disappointing review and wanted to share with you all.
If you’re obsessed with pop culture like me, then you must have already heard of Jen Atkin- celebrity hairstylist to a ton of different celebrities like the Kardashians, Chrissy Teigen, Jenna Dewan, Jessica Alba etc. Jen released a line of hair care products, Ouai, and it has been given overall rave reviews so when Ouai released Dry Shampoo Foam I was immediately intrigued.
If you’re a Beauty and Jess regular than you know how much I love trying out different dry shampoos. Because I don’t wash my hair often, Dry Shampoo is a MUST in my weekly routine. I thought the idea of a Dry Shampoo Foam was interesting, but because Ouai has gotten such great reviews, I thought I’d try it out.
The way they suggest you use this foam is to apply the foam onto your roots and rub it in until it is completely dry. I also saw on Jen’s Instagram that she applies the foam onto the roots and then blow-drys the roots. I have curly hair so I feared that a foam would just make my hair curly so I went with the blow-dry method to assure my roots would stay dry.
Here’s what I like- the smell and the volume. This might be a make or break for some but for me, I absolutely loved the smell this foam gives off. It smells fresh and made me feel like I’d just walked out of a salon. The other thing I liked about this dry shampoo was the volume it gives you. You can use this foam to tease/style your hair and it gives some serious volume.
Here’s what I didn’t like- it’s not really a dry shampoo. In my eyes, a dry shampoo is something that will soak up the oils in your dirty hair and give off a fresh look. As I mentioned, I don’t wash my hair often so I NEED my dry shampoo to soak up my greasy hair and give me a refreshed look. Unfortunately, this foam does not do that.
I would say that this foam is definitely a volumizer and should not be called a dry shampoo. If you’re someone with flat hair and are looking for something that gives you some nice volume, I’d highly recommend this. BUT if you are like me and are looking for something to make your hair look like it’s been washed then this is not for you.
I hope you found this review helpful! My next review will be on the Milk Primer, pictured below! Xoo
