Most Helpful Positive Review Best I've used!
I love this product! I've seen many influencers talk about Ouai and was never super convinced, but after watching a video by Whitney Simmons and finding out Ouai was now at Ulta I decided to give it a try. I bought this in store and had a 20% off coupon so it ended up only being about $15. I've tried the Not Your Mothers and Batiste (original) dry shampoos and neither ever seemed to soak up the oil, tbh I think they made it look dirtier.
This product smells amazing and truly soaks up a good amount of oil making my hair look refreshed! It can cause a slight white cast on dark hair so just make sure you kinda rub/shake it out.
Most Helpful Critical Review made my hair even more oily
I have really thick long brown hair and it doesn't get oily until about the 4th day without washing. i thought i would get a dry shampoo to reduce the amount of heat on my hair and not wash it as often. however, with this dry shampoo i noticed that it actually created more oil to my hair and i notice i was using so much more product because i thought it was me who was just having an oily scalp when really it was the product buildup. it leaves a white cast on my hair even when i extend my arm as far away as possible and even when i brush it out. using the product for about a month now and still same issues. i notice my hair is a lot better without using this product. but still interested in the brand, just one hit for me!
Reviewed by 64 customers Excellent product, does what it claims
Mrsloveshark from Laramie Wy
I have tried several different dry shampoo products and none of them worked on my fine hair, that needs to be washed everyday or my roots are greasy and gross. Ouai is the only dry shampoo product that does what it claims. It even works two days in a row for me, without having to apply more product. It's been a total game changer for my routine and I love it! Definitely worth the $.
My favorite dry shampoo by far
Erin from New Smyrna Beach, Florida
I use dry shampoo every other day to keep my hair oils at bay and this is by far my favorite. It does not color my hair white, but I have pretty light blonde hair, so it would be hard to tell if it did. I love the smell and it doesn't weigh down or stiffen my fine hair.
10/10 would recommend
DaSi from Dallas
I have gone to the gym on a time crunch, blow dried my sweaty hair, part my hair in sections as i have pretty thick hair. Then spray this on. Let it sit while do all my other stuff, then scrub my head as if i were washing my scalp with shampoo in the shower, and BAM! Completely dry, clean looking and smelling hair. As if it's first day hair, not 2nd day gym hair. And no white residue on my naturally super dark brown hair.
Michelle from Tennessee
Bought the travel size of this and travel size living proof. This is one of the best smelling dry shampoos I've bought. To me it smells like Clinique happy perfume which I don't love as a perfume but it's not bad as a dry-poo. It makes my hair feel more fresh but doesn't seem to absorb as much oil as my others or give much volume at all. It doesn't leave build up which I love but I have to use it a couple times during the day to refreshen but isn't ideal as a nurse. I might by again to use with another shampoo for the smell.
Not worth it
ximenaaaaag from san diego
I wouldn't buy this ever again... left a white cast in my hair (still when I applied it inches farther from my hair).
Does what it claims
Shishi from Wisconsin
Best dry shampoo for hair that is on its 3rd day without a wash! Love it!
The best of the best
Melody from Arizona
This dry shampoo is phenomenal! It smells wonderful and my hair feels soft and fresh!! I highly recommend it👍You will love it!!!
Best dry shampoo I have ever tried
Banditsmom from Fresno, Ca
I am so annoyed with all of these "didn't work" reviews! This is amazing! First impression was it smells really nice! Second impression was the nozzle is pointing kind of weird. Third impression was my actual hair looked like I actually washed it! My hair is like a chestnut (all natural color), medium to fine hair, and it's long. I have to wash it every other day because my scalp gets so oily! I feel so refreshed :) The directions say to rub it in after, maybe others aren't reading the directions. But I'm annoyed all of these it's ok reviews prevented me from buying this sooner!
No no no
Jess from California
I have very thick dark hair and need something to control my oily scalp without having to wash my hair every other day. I really wanted to like this product but it just was not it. I had to use A LOT of product for my hair not to look as oily but overall it did not do much. It left a white residue on my hair even though I tried to brush it out. The smell was too strong. I kept smelling it throughout the whole day. It's not a bad smell just too strong for my liking. This product did nothing for my hair
Really pretty good
Laceypantiez from Salt Lake City
I was surprised how effective this one is- it smells like hot girl hair- and I have enjoyed using it daily since I have a track in and need to not wash my hair much.
Best smelling dry shampoo
Molly from Chicago
This is literally the best smelling dry shampoo ever. I literally spray it in my clean hair as my perfume. I get so many compliments I'm never buying another kind again!
Works but the smell is awful
LH from Michigan
This definitely made me hair feel cleaner and even though it left a white residue (dark brunette hair) at first that brushed out pretty easily. I can't handle the smell though, so I will not be buying again.
Best dry shampoo!
Angie from Miramar, FL
This dry shampoo is the best I've tried so far and I love it! Smells awesome too!
Better than expected!
Sarah from Austin, TX
I've tried quite a few dry shampoos and haven't been able to find one that didn't leave grey marks in my dark brown hair, until this one! It only needs two or three sprays too to achieve enough of a "shampooed" look. It also doesn't leave your hair feeling weird and staticky like some other dry shampoos. I will be buying again!
I would not buy this again.
Soccermom from Texas
This dry shampoo was recommended by an employee of ULTA. It was a horrible choice for my hair. I have fine hair that I am trying to learn to not wash every day. When I sprayed this on, it was extremely heavy and my hair felt horrid. I would not recommend this to someone who does not want a heavy feeling dry shampoo.
No volume and hair still greasy
Honey Badger from Chicago IL
I like the scent of this dry shampoo, but that is about it. It doesn't make my hair cleaner no matter how much I spray in my hair, and it doesn't add any volume whatsoever. I've tried a number of other brands and this one is by far the worst.. switching back to Living Proof even though its more $$ (but you get what you pay for I guess!)
LOVE THE SMELL
Monique from Los Angeles
This is my new favorite dry shampoo, I wake up at 430am every single day and this helps for the no wash days when I'm running out the door. It doesn't feel gritty or leave heavy white residue like Bastiste. Love this stuff. I also have 2C wavy hair. Doesn't weight my hair down and it gives massive volume!
Best dry shampoo
The greasy Italian from Denver, CO
This is imo the best dry shampoo. It works soooo well without leaving a gross residue like other dry shampoos. Also, my hair even stays oil free for a 3rd day which I've never been able to do with other brands. Usually by the end of the day my hair will be gross and greasy again, but not with this!!
No results and bad smell
Sydney from Georgia
Bought this to give it a try. It does absolutely nothing to my hair but cause a white cast and makes me smell like a cheap bottle of floral perfume. So if that's what you want this is for you. I almost feel like it makes my hair even more oily! Do NOT recommend this at all.
Volume without the crunch!
Worth the splurge from Tennessee
I've never been into higher end dry shampoos but I gave this one a try because I love OUAI's scent and it's hard for me to use my cheap dry shampoos now! This gives my hair life / volume that is moveable and smells amazing without a bad white cast! It absorbs excess oil without being over drying and I don't have a chalk film after using it when I run my fingers through my hair throughout the day. If you're hesitant on more expensive dry shampoos don't be with this one! It's worth it! When I use this everyone also comment on my "perfume" and it's this dry shampoo :)
Missy from South Carolina
I really like the smell of this dry shampoo even though its a bit strong. However, not really impressed with it overall. I have to constantly shake/brush my hair over and over to get the residue out. Also, it leaves my hair, not really stiff, but you can feel that the product is there. Hair is still flat but without the oily look. I'll finish using this product but probably won't buy again.
Super strong smell
Emily from Georgia
I bought the travel size of this to try before purchasing the full size product as it is on the more expensive side. I was surprised that it didn't work at all. My hair looks the same if not more oily than it did prior to use. The smell of the dry shampoo is so strong and overwhelming and not in a good way. My bathroom still smells like it 5 hours later. I don't recommend this product.
❤️❤️❤️ this stuff
Laurelai from Jax, Fl
I have fairly oily here and can't skip washing my hair a single day without using dry shampoo!! Ouai works as well as Living Proof and smells way better!!
It basically perfumes your hair
DryShampooIzLyfe from IL
I feel like I could use this entire can spraying my hair and the only thing it would do is make my hair perfumed (not the best scent either). Like literally no oil absorption. (Could it have actually made my hair worse when this product to it??). Save your money and use Klorane, Living Proof, DryBar...baby powder, corn starch, god...anything else.
My new favorite dry shampoo!!
Andrea from Wisconsin
I used this product without reading how to use it and felt like it was fine like all the rest. I just worked 4 12 hour shifts and usually only skip washing 3 days in a row. I wanted to stretch it out so I wouldn't have to wash on a work day and actually read the directions and I couldn't believe it the 4th day was less greasy than the 3rd. This stuff is amazing!
