A multitasking oil for sleek, frizz-free hair.
This versatile, luxurious Hair Oil smooths frizz and seals split ends for a high-gloss, silky finish.
I have been an ardent fan of Alterna hair care brand. The OUAI hair care is new one for me. I was under impression that this is a dry oil in a spray bottle, like the Alterna Bamboo Dry Oil. I have no idea why I thought so. When I saw it, I realized it was more on the lines of Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil , Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil and Agave Oil Treatment.
Color: Clear, but looks pale yellow in bottle.
Texture and Consistency: Thin, not too slippery or sticky. Not too greasy. It is a light weight fluid.
Scent: Floral and very strong but pleasant to my nose. It smells like Jasmine flower. The scent lingers on for good amount of time. If you are allergic to scents, this one is not for you.
Application: I take a little more than pea size amount of this oil in my palms, rub it well and apply is on my dry hair. I avoid using it on the scalp. I also use it generously an hour before washing my hair. Just apply it nicely to coat the hair shaft, but avoiding the scalp. It acts like a hair mask. A treatment mask.
Feel and Effect on Hair: This feels very light on the hair. It is not pure 100% oil. It does has that slippery, silicone texture, but is not super greasy. The product does not weighs my hair down. It makes them appear less frizzy, smooth and shiny. Also, it helps the hair retain its moisture and locks in the natural oils, when I use it before hair wash as hair oil or hair mask. It conditions the hair beautifully.
Packaging: This comes in a clear plastic bottle and has a pump dispenser. The pump does not dispenses too much product and can be controlled easily. The packaging is very basic.
Verdict: I love this Ouai Hair Oil. It worked for my fine hair. It is neither too slippery nor too greasy. The scent though strong, does not bothers me. I find it pleasant. It helps tame the frizz and smooths the hair. I like to use flat iron after applying this and the combination of the two gives soft, smooth, silky manageable hair. I think I have used all the good adjectives that I could for this product.
Big thumbs up!!
