I usually don’t talk about products I don’t love because I always feel like theres something I can find in place of it that I will love and thats what I like to share on my blog. I don’t like to focus on the bad but sometimes it’s not the bad as much as it is having a different experience using a product then what you’ve heard others have had. That makes me curious!
I got this Ouai foam dry shampoo because I was obsessed and intrigued by the foam! Dry shampoo with no more white cast and the amazing reviews I had read about it..it sounded like this dry shampoo was a dream and I expected it to be my new obsession and hair saver. My expectations I had for the product were very high. The first time I tried it I wanted to like it so badly that I ignored the way it made my hair feel. My hair looked decent in the front, I didn’t experience the influx of volume like I had heard others had and my hair felt greasy and wet as if I applied too much product. But, as this shampoo works, the product should not be felt. I figured I did it wrong and would try again. I did have to wash my hair. I later went online and watched some videos on how-to use the product and I was using it the way you were supposed too! I would not let myself be bummed so I put it aside to try again in 4 days when my hair was ready. Come 4 days, I try again. Still greasy and wet looking. Time to shower, at least this is day 4 hair. I always used it on day 4 hair so I thought maybe my hair was too dirty for the product and past the point of saving. I tried it on day 2 hair and was so BUMMED when of course, I had to wash my hair after trying it because it was so greasy and unwearable honestly.
I so badly wanted to love this dry shampoo! I sacrificed day 2 hair for it! After using it a few times it became extremely clear that this product did not work for me. I ended up returning it to Sephora because there was no way I was going to use it again. Every time I see an “it” girl on instagram raving about the product, I feel like it has to be because they’re friends with Jen Atkin! I don’t understand how people loved this product when all it did was ruin my hair. It makes me sad that it didn’t work for me! But the reviews on Sephora aren’t great either so I have some company. I get the highs and lows between beauty products among people but this is an extreme high and low. I have no hard feelings against Ouai products. The foam dry shampoo did not work for me. I’m trying the hair supplements at the moment and have super high hopes for that!
As for foam dry shampoo, Dry Bar just came out with one and again my intrigue is peaked! I so want to find a foam dry shampoo that will work for me. I love the concept of it. I want to see if there is a travel size before I commit!
