Smells Great, Gives Waves Definition, Slightly Drying
Sampled

Smells great, enhances natural wave pattern really well, but slightly drying. I have naturally wavy/straight, thick hair, and this product does a good job of defining the waves and giving some piecey-er texture which I love on days I leave my hair natural. My only qualm with this product is that it's somewhat drying and since I concentrate it on the ends of my long hair (which are already prone to dryness) I'm going to need to avoid using it too often.

Another use I'd recommend especially for girls with straighter hair trying to acheive a natural wave look is spritzing it into towel-dried hair and dutch braiding (I like to leave my braids looser and messier so they dry quicker and leave you with a loose beachy look, and I also like to start the braids back a little farther than usual to avoid crimpiness framing my face. I also like to end the braid with a few inches of hair left so the ends are straight). When I did this I woke up with really pretty, touchable, and defined waves that lasted until my next wash. If your hair doesn't hold style well you might want to throw in some hairspray as well either while the hair is still in the braid or right when you take it out.

Perfect for me.
Sampled

I love the OUIA products, especially the wave spray. Everyone's hair reacts differently to different products. Some products that work great on other people don't work on my stubborn, thick, straight hair hardly at all. This wave spray really works. It smells GREAT and doesn't leave your hair sticky. It also lasts until I wash it out. It is my favorite wave/texturizer of all the ones I have tried (about 10).

Exceeded my expectations!
Sampled

I thought this spray would be like most other wave sprays. I was delightfully surprised! I used the product on my wet hair before going to bed. When I awoke I had very nice waves with some curls. I reapplied to my dry hair and my hair reacted great to the product. I used frizz hairspray to lock in the curls and waves as it was a humid day. I would look into buying this product in the future!

Love it

I have naturally very straight hair so I can not scrunch it or make a natural wave but when I do curl my hair this product is great to hold in place and to create great texture it is a little sticky but it holds I love it

Smells good

It smells so good but not my type. I have too many hair products so I will give it to my sister.

Not Quite Right
Sampled

This product did create some sort of wavy texture in my hair however the formula feels quite sticky and heavy on the hair. Forr the mildest of waves i got from this product and the sticky feeling I would say you are better off trying a lighter formula.

Love the brand, not the product
Sampled

I love Ouai. Unfortunately, this product did not do much if anything for my thick straight hair. My hair texture is so difficult to curl and/or create texture and this spray was unfortunately unable to assist in creating texture to my hair. I would much rather have preferred a DRY SHAMPOO or LEAVE IN CONDITIONER.

Best Wave Spray Out There
Sampled

This is the first wave spray that has actually been able to hold my waves but keep my hair soft at the same time. It also smells so amazing you don't even need to put perfume on. I will definitely be buying this!

I love this brand, every product I’ve gotten I have loved. I have thin straight/wavy-ish hair and this really brought the waves out in my hair. Love it
