Product Review: Hair Rehab with Ouai Hair Masques

Real talk, who wouldn’t trust celeb stylist Jen Atkin with their hair? Exactly. So when our hair needs serious TLC post-color, we turned to her Ouai Hair Treatment Masques for some damage control. Here’s what we thought:
Ouai Mask
What it is: This pack comes with eight treatment doses (meant to be used twice a week), to restore and heal hair in a matter of minutes:

What it does: Uses ingredients like artichoke leaf extract and jojoba to nourish and repair strands. Just apply to hair, comb through with your fingers, wait 5 to 10 minutes, and then rinse out.

What we liked: Our ends were seriously parched from over-styling and color. This mask is bringing it back to life. After one use, we noticed much softer, bouncier ends without feeling the least bit weighed down. We also like to apply to our ends before a long gym session so we’re ready to go once we hit the shower. The light floral scent that makes the treatment feel extra luxurious.

What we didn’t like: The amount felt right for shorter hair, but we can imagine it takes more than one if you have super long and thick hair. Let us know if you tried it in the comments and what you thought too!

Price: $32 for 8 packets

How to Do a Quick Messy Bun!

Let’s be real…we don’t always have a lot of time to do our hair. That’s why I like to default to a messy bun, but I make it office-ready by flat ironing some loose pieces and using root cover on any exposed areas of my scalp, I can quickly make the style look full and chic. Not bad for 60 seconds right? Check it out below!

The Product You NEED for Gorgeous Beach Waves

We sipped the Ouai juice, and we’re hooked. But did you expect anything less from Jen Atkin, the queen of Cool Girl hair? Just check out her clients like Chrissy Teigen and the Kardashians for reference. Atkin pretty much discovered how to bottle beach hair in her Ouai Wave Spray that has a light, white musk scent (or is it jasmine? Whatever it is, we likes). It gives our locks a little bit of body and a wave that can go from subtle to beach babe depending on how we use it. We’ve been stocking up since we got our hands on it.
ouai wave spray

What it is: A waving spray that can be used on wet or dry hair to create a beachy wave.

What it does: Uses rice protein to add hold for a natural wave look.

What we liked: If you’ve used wave sprays in the past, you know the deal. Either your hair gets super crunchy or weighed down. We love to use this on our wet hair and let it air dry for a subtle beachy look, and before a rough blow dry followed by an iron for more defined waves. Plus so much body! All that with no added salt in sight.

What we didn’t like: That air dry tip didn’t work for our fine hair tester as much as it did for our tester with thicker hair. And though we love the smell, it’s not for everyone if you’re not into the musky-type perfume scents.

Fun fact: Ouai is pronounce “way,” inspired by the cool Parisian way to say “oui” or “yes”

How to Make Your Hair Appear Fuller and Help it Grow!

Hi everyone! I have a double-whammy trick to help my hair fall stop and make it look thicker: I use a mix of Kérastase Densifique Minoxidil solution (which helps to add density to hair) and a dark eyeshadow shade (here I used Too Faced’s Natural Matte Palette) to cover up any exposed scalp areas. You can see a difference in just minutes with this beauty hack! See it below:

How I Get Soft Curls Without a Hair Dryer

huda soft curls

Hey guys! I wanted to show you how I get soft curls WITHOUT using a blow dryer. The trick is using a combo of a flat iron and large barrel curling wand. I’m obsessed with this one from Leyla Milani, called the Triple Threat because it comes with three interchangeable ceramic rods. I used the biggest one for this look! I love it because it gives my hair major body and pretty, bouncy curls. Let me know what you think!
