The much hyped Ouia Haircare range from celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin is now easily available in the UK (Selfridges, Cult Beauty, Space NK). I have been dying to try this range and decided to start with the Wave Hair Spray (£22).
I have never got on well with salt/beach hair sprays as they always leave me with tangled, dry, crunchy hair that’s a pig to sort out!
According to Ouia this spray is made with “rice protein instead of traditional salt, this ultra-fine mist is the secret to loose, beachy waves without stiffness or ‘crunch’” Hurray!
Well it definitely doesn’t leave my hair crunchy! I used it on both wet and dry hair and it worked well to add texture and wave. It works really well when left to dry naturally leaving my hair soft but very beachy!
I have to be honest the best thing about this product – the smell! I have heard a number of people mention the smell and how amazing it is – its all true it is divine. In response to the popularity of the smell Jen Atkin has said she is creating a fragrance based on the signature scent of the Ouia range. I will definitely be buying that!
