Most Helpful Positive Review Life saver
So my mom actually bought this for herself and I happened to see it after I got out of the shower, so I thought I'd give it a try. I have been on the search for a leave in conditioner that wouldn't make my hair feel weighed down or sticky and I'm so glad I tried it when I saw it. At first I thought I would hate the smell cause it was different from what I'd typically gravitate towards but after my hair dried and I tried it out a few times through out that week I came to the conclusion that I wasn't super bothered by the scent (it actually grew on me). For people who don't like or can't handle strong smells, this may not be for you. But I have to say this is the BEST leave in conditioner I've ever used in my life. I have some extremely frizzy, damaged, and fine hair. I had dyed my hair almost a year ago and literally nothing would help my hair get back to how it was. It got super dry, would break often, and was just so frizzy and untamable that I gave up on trying to find anything that could help. After trying my moms out for a few weeks now, I can honestly say this stuff saved me. It has made my hair so soft and smooth that I haven't even needed to straighten my hair. I've never been confident enough to go out without styling my hair and this stuff has been amazing. I ended up ordering a bottle for myself and even ordered their shampoo and conditioner. I figured if the leave in conditioner helped that much, how much more their whole line would help my hair! Super excited to try out other stuff from their line, thank you OUAI!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Very strong perfume smell.
Sadly, the smell was so strong and not a scent anyone in my family liked. With 5 girls in our family, all with long thick hair that can take advantage of a leave-in conditioner.... none of us could get past this particular scent. We ended up tossing it.
We aren't sensitive, or afraid to wear perfume (Tom Ford, Yves St. Laurent, Burberry, Jo Malone, etc.). If you don't mind the scent and are Ok with stronger perfume scents, this would be great... especially if you don't frequently wash your hair and need a refresher, go to the gym, have thicker/dryer hair that can tangle.
Another reviewer commented that you definitely won't need perfume if you use this. They are not kidding.
Reminds me of when I lived and used Aveda products for years and years. Then during one pregnancy, suddenly the smell of Aveda products made me sick.
This is one product you want to make sure you like the smell of before you buy it, cause you will be wearing that scent all day long.

Smells amazing and leaves your hair so nourished and soft. I bleached my hair and I tried multiple leave in conditioners before using this and nothing was working. So excited to continue to use it.
Yes! This is actually a repeat purchase!

I use it every time I wash my hair. It smells wonderful, and doesn't weigh down my hair or make it "gommy!"

It leaves my hair so soft and SMELLS AMAZING!!!
Julie88 from IL
It worked on my fine hair. I have long, flat hair. It detangles and smooths the hair. It's easy to use and it smells great. I'm not a fan of rose scents, but I like this one. It is also long lasting, the bottle will last for a long time.
My summer fave!

This smells fantastic!
Brooke from Carlisle, PA
This is something that has changed my life. After I got out of the shower every time I would dread brushing my hair. I continuously went to ulta trying to find something that worked. And this is it! You just spray all over hair and somehow all the knots are gone. No joke. The only thing I would say is a con is that it is a little more pricey and it seems like the product runs out fast. With these things being said though, it is all worth for these outcomes!
BuckeyeGirl from Canton, Ohio
I fell in love after the first spray...the smell was amazing. I admit it was strong at first but OMG it smells so good!! After drying my hair, it not only looked great but felt great. It felt soft and so healthy!! Just tried this on a whim but will be going back for other OUAI products for sure!!
Great product-use sparingly
Liv from Pittsburgh, PA
At first I thought I didn't like this product because of the strong perfume smell. After trying it again with just a few sprays instead- it worked wonders!
Transformed my hair!
Em from Chicago
This is my favorite product to use in my hair!! It will last you FOREVER - a little goes a long way. My hair is naturally more oily so I avoid using it near my roots. I like to spray about 3-4 pumps into my hand and then run it through the ends of my hair. It helps detangle the ends while also providing the moisture and shine it needs. I've notified a HUGE difference in the way my hair styles when I blow dry or straight it. It's so silky and soft. It also smells incredible and I've gotten so many compliments on how my hair smells from my boyfriend. I plan on buying the travel size too so I can take it with me wherever I go!
My go to leave in!!!
Arizona girl from Phoenix, AZ
This is my go to leave in conditioner. I have fine, straight hair and this makes it so smooth and bouncy. The smell is a strong floral, and I love it!!! I would continue to buy it for the fragrance alone if I had to. It does not make my hair greasy , and is very light.
Great for added conditioning after the pool!
Shawna from Pearcy
Spray on after getting out of the pool!
Grace from Kansas
I was super excited to try this but this product does not live up to the hype. There is nothing hydrating about this leave in, and the fragrance is overwhelming. Way too expensive for very little results
curlyhairstraight from Western IL
Really love how soft this product made my hair but have found while using it that I have horrible second day hair and cannot do third day. Product is way too heavy, even using just a few light spritzes. This would be a good product for someone who doesn't have problems with heavy products. I have dry hair and still couldn't make it work. Shame, it really does feel nice on my hair and smells amazing.
clmurphy24 from Warminster
This product leaves your hair very soft and silky but yet manageable enough to curl with an iron. My hair does not feel greasy, even after a few days.
Marissa from Chicago
A few reviews down, someone refers to this as "perfume for the hair". I definitely agree with that. I feel like I use so much product for so little result. The smell is very strong and floral. I don't notice a major chance in my hair; this just makes it a little easier to run a comb through it. I won't be repurchasing.
Perfect for my son's and I Black hair
Erika from Nashville, TN
I first received this item as a sample in a Birchbox. I feel in love with it but I never bought the full size bottle because of the cost.
I had a little extra money so I decided to splurge on the Ouai leave in conditioner. I love it on my 4c natural hair so I decided to use it on my son. My son has 4a type hair and he hated when I detangled his hair with an African Pride leave in conditioner. When I sprayed the Ouai leave in on his hair, there were no tears and his hair had the prettiest little curls that I've ever seen on him. They're so well defined and moisturized!
The smell,ooooh! The smell is a luxurious regal rose. It smells like money maybe that's why it's so expensive lol!
I highly recommend this product and I will keep it in my daily hair care routine.
Jmyou from Dallas
Smells amazing and works great. Leaves my hair silky smooth and fresh. This is my 2nd time purchasing and I will keep repurchasing.
Has a nice smell
Itscyndo from Los Angeles
It does leave my hair soft and it helps de tangling. It honestly doesn't do much for frizz. Also I feel like you have to use a lot of product to get results. People say my hair smells really good and I agree the scent is nice.
Carrie from Altoona, pa
I absolutely love this, I'm not one who likes floral scented things but it does not stay, my shampoo and conditioner overpower it but, wow does it make your hair soft but not greasy!! It's light but not watery. And it does the job!! Perfect leave in and I got a small sample a month ago, I wash my hair 2-3 times a week and I still have 1/2 a bottle left!!
yt from Skokie
I bought this leave in conditioner after reading several positive reviews and having an influencer recommend it. For me, it didn't do anything. I have fine, straight hair that tangles like crazy. It left my hair a little greasy. The only thing it did was make my hair smell good. It was like spraying a perfume bottle into my hair. The ingredients support the "perfume bottle for the hair" statement as I didn't see anything helpful in the ingredients list.
Should've done more research. My bet, if you're looking for something to soften your hair and make it easier to brush through it, look somewhere else. Way too overpriced for something that doesn't do what it promises
Don't buy this.

Leaves a waxy finish to your hair.
Not as great as I'd hoped.
T from Buena Park
This is supposed to be a leave-in conditioner and detangler. It just didn't work for me. I have thin hair that's been processed, I straighten it daily, and it's COVID outgrown without a cut in 12 weeks. My ends are feeling it. I usually use a keratin spray, but wanted something different, maybe better. My hair didn't feel soft, and it seemed to have more knots than with my other product. The smell, for me, was overpowering with a floral scent.
Kate from Indiana
Didn't work for me
Dani from Wichita KS
Made my hair feel extremely rough and course like there was a pound of conditioner in it. Did NOT get rid of frizz at all if anything it made it worse.
clmurphy24 from Warminster, Pa
This is a very nice leave in conditioners that does not leave a residue on your hair or make your hair feel stiff. Leaves your hair very soft and manageable; even If I want to use a curling iron, it will hold the curl.
