Super Dry Shampoo

What hair types does it work on?

Fine, medium, and thick hair that gets super oily at the scalp.

What is it made of?

Volcanic minerals act as a natural cleanser and detoxifier; rice starch gobbles up grease and gives flat hair oomph plus Rhodiola rosea extract fights free radicals, helping hair look stronger and healthier.  

Is rubbing it in not counterproductive for removing oil?

Nope! The correct way to use a dry shampoo is to section hair and spray at the root—where it gets greasiest. Rubbing helps the product reach the scalp where the oil is produced and the hair right up against it (AKA the hair that sticks to your head).

Is it good for those of us with fine textured hair?

Yes! It was created with fine-haired folks in mind. Our angled nozzle and powerful blast give tons of volume too.

Do you recommend using it when the hair is freshly clean to help extend its “shelf life”?

You definitely can. A few OUAIs to do this would be spraying it in hair before bed to absorb oil overnight, especially if you get overnight sweats. Or spray it into hair BEFORE working out to absorb sweat as you go.

Does it have to sit on the hair for a few seconds before I rub it in?

You don’t have to but you can.

What does it smell like?

Super Dry Shampoo smells like our Melrose Place Eau de Parfum—just like Scalp & Body Scrub, Rose Hair & Body Oil, and Treatment Masque.

Dry Shampoo Foam

What hair types does it work on?

Thick, coily, and coarse hair that’s dry at the scalp and needs hydration. If you have fine hair that gets super oily, Dry Shampoo Foam is NOT for you.

What is it made of?

Diatomaceous Earth naturally removes product build-up and panthenol hydrates, conditions and protect your hair.

Can I apply it on clean hair?

Yes! Dry Shampoo Foam provides volume to clean and dirty hair alike. You can even use it to perk up bangs.

Will it ruin my blowout?

No! At first application, it might feel wet, but don't freak out—the formula is meant to cleanse the hair and give it that just-showered feel without ruining any style or blowout. 

Will it leave a white cast?

Never. Simply dispense a ping-pong size amount to your palm then massage it at your roots, working your way down if you wish. Rub the product in until the white disappears (about 35 seconds) and you're good to go.

Does it work as a heat protectant?

No, you’ll want to use OUAI Memory Mist Heat Protectant for that, but Dry Shampoo Foam can add texture and hold to updos. Apply a ping-pong size to your palms then massage it throughout dry hair before heat styling for added hold and body.

What does it smell like?

Dry Shampoo Foam smells just like our North Bondi Eau de Parfum, which is also in our beloved Wave Spray, Texturizing Hair Spray and all of our Conditioners.
