Ouai Clean Shampoo and Conditioner

There has been something of a 'thing' when it comes to Ouai hair care and a lovely little package was sent to the mister to try, but being me, I wanted to try it there and then and over the past few months, have slowly made my way through a bottle of Ouai Clean Shampoo and Conditioner.

If you have never come across Ouai before, it is pronounced Way and translates to me Yes! Ouai was created by the famous celebrity hairdresser Jen Atkin and she is responsible for maintaining the locks of Klan Kardashian, Gigi Hadid and Gwen Stefani - quite the celeb list right there and you know what, if it is good enough for them, then I want to give it a try. I am already a huge fan of the Dry Foam Shampoo which I reviewed HERE

Ouai's Clean Shampoo and Conditioner are described as being "A clarifying cocktail to eliminate build-up and ‘detox’ congested tresses and is suitable for all hair types and textures". Now living in London can take its toll on the hair. We have hard water, something it took as my skin and scalp a long time to get used too after being from 'Up North' where the water is much softer. For years I was plagued with scalp problems which was linked to hard water and whilst slowly I have become accustomed to it, there is nothing quite like washing my hair at my parents house! That aside, finding a shampoo and conditioner that don't leave my hair feeling lank and greasy, that doesn't irritate my scalp and doesn't make me want to get in from work and wash it daily has been a bit of a struggle, there are very few brands that I feel compelled to use and over the last 2-3 years I have narrowed down my shampoo and conditioner to a very very small number of brands, one of them being Ouai.

Firstly the shampoo. It is a detoxifying shampoo which works to dissolve excess oil and residue without stripping hair or compromising its colour.  You literally need the smallest amount of this shampoo as it is quite concentrated, so less is more, in this case much more and when mixed with water, it creates a lot of lather.

On the hair the most amazing scent comes to life which is from a blend of Italian lemon, Turkish rose, jasmine, iris, lily and white musk which is combined with a cocktail of nourishing ingredients referred to as the ‘OUAI Smart Technology which includes amino acids, tamarind seed, keratin, ama oil, hibiscus and jasmine to fortify strands, enhance moisture levels, repair and protect from humidity.  Once you begin to wash the shampoo out, again, I use warm water not hot, you can immediately feel a change in your hair, soft, smooth and incredibly nourished. At no point does my hair feel dry and straw like, my scalp isn't itching and the incredible scent lingers on the hair.

The Conditioner, I am not a huge fan of conditioner and only use them a few times a week, some people like them everytime they wash their hair, but that is a personal choice. The Ouai Clean Conditoner, like the shampoo is a luxuriously thick texture and again, you only need a small amount t comb through the ends of your hair.

This time there is a blend of Italian lemon, bergamot, rose de mai, magnolia, lily, blackberry, cedar wood, amber, patchouli, sandalwood and white musk alongside the all important ‘OUAI Smart Technology’ which is a cocktail of nourishing ingredients and this time it includes amino acids, tamarind seed, keratin, ama oil, hibiscus and jasmine and they work to fortify strands, enhance moisture levels, repair and protect from humidity.  What I have found with the conditioner is that it is incredibly hydrating and it also helps to protect the cuticle which in turn makes my hair much smoother and much more manageable with less frizz and flyaway's, especially if I am straightening using my GHDs.

I am really impressed with both the shampoo and the conditioner if you couldn't tell and it is worth noting that they are both free of parabens and sulphates.  With their sleek and chic bottles for me, Ouai is a brand worth seeking out.  The Shampoo and  Condition both retail for £22 for a 300ml and 250ml bottle respectively (here) and a huge tick for a bigger shampoo to conditioner bottle!

Have you tried anything from Ouai yet?
