Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam contains 5.3 oz/150 g of product and costs $28, making it one of the pricier dry shampoos that I've tried. This dry shampoo is meant to perform well on any hair type and hair color (even color treated hair). It is formulated without parabens, but those sensitive to smells will possibly find the signature Ouai scent a little too strong (I personally LOVE it though).
To use the Dry Shampoo Foam you're supposed to shake the can very well before applying a ping pong sized amount of the mousse to the palm of your hand. If you have thick hair (or a lot of hair like myself) then just dispense a little more product. You then want to apply the foam on the areas where you would not only see but also feel the all oil/product buildup (aka the roots of your hair). If you have bangs, then make sure to apply some product on them as well. The key with this dry shampoo is to massage it into the hair (almost like if you were actually shampooing your hair) for over a minute. A minute may seem a little excessive when regular dry shampoo takes just seconds to work it in (unless you have dark hair like mine), but it'll be so worth it.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam didn't do either of those things. This is truly the first dry shampoo that I've found to be completely clear! I've tried many dry shampoos that claim to not leave a white cast or turn your dark hair gray, but they've never lived up to those claims. Even the "clear" dry shampoos would leave some residue that would be visible on my dark hair.
Apart from the fact that the Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam is completely clear, it also left my hair feeling a lot cleaner and more voluminous. I mean, look at that volume! It honestly looks like I purposely styled my hair and bangs like that, but in actuality it was just the dry shampoo that did all the work for me.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam didn't leave a white residue on my dark hair. And yes, this is my natural hair color. I've actually gotten messages asking me what hair dye I use but I haven't dyed my hair in over 3 years.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam lives up to the hype. Now I will say that this might not be the dry shampoo for everyone, but I feel very confident to recommend it to people with a similar hair color and texture to mine. If you've struggled to find a completely clear dry shampoo that will leave your hair looking bouncy and clean, then the Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam might be worth looking into. I will say that I'm really curious to see how long this can of the Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam will last me since I do use dry shampoo regularly. I will have to report back on that on a later day.
