SAVING MY HAIR FROM THE HEAT
To be honest, I hate using products in my hair. The artificial fragrances in so many products are too strong and unpleasant as well as the crunchy film that coats the hair and weighs it down. (No one likes that!) I would avoid using anything after I conditioned; however, now that I have been processing my hair for quite some time I’ve noticed a lot more damage and frizz from heat styling and I needed to change my hair care routine.
Enter Ouai Haircare! Ouai is created by celebrity stylist, Jen Atkin with real women in mind. Products designed for effortless style ready in 20 minutes. I’ve changed my mind about incorporating style products and these two Ouai products are seriously saving my hair!
This multi-tasking oil smooths my frazzled hair and protects my ends from heat damage. I use it before I blow dry and after I’ve finished heat styling with a straightener and curling iron. It smells divine, and it doesn’t leave my hair looking greasy. Along with regular trims and cutting down on hair washes, Ouai hair oil is repairing my frizzy ends!
This perfecting mist is a savour! It memorizes the shape and style of my ‘do and prolongs its life until my next shampoo, usually 2-3 days later. I use it before I style with hot tools and after as a finishing spray to lock it in place. It has minimized the amount of heat I need to use to touch up my second day hair. (Every bit helps when you are trying to repair distressed/damaged hair!)
Lastly, this product doesn’t do anything for the health of my hair, but it makes it smell AMAZING! I can’t get enough of anything that smells like coconuts, summer or just plain old sunscreen, and this is just a dream! Spritz this quintessential summer scent on your finished style or your skin!
