It’s pretty obvious at this point that when it comes to anything hair, Jen Atkin is the woman to go to. Not only is she the hair stylist of the likes of the Kardashian clan and Chrissy Teigen, she’s also, without a doubt, one of the coolest gals in the A-list sphere.
As far as hair oils go, we thought it couldn’t get much better than the original OUAI Hair oil, but it turns out that Jen and her team had something even better in the works while everyone and their neighbours best friend fangirled over the original. Introducing: the OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil.
So, just why do we love it oh so much, and how is it different from the original hair oil? Firstly, you get more bang for your buck with this oil – 98.9ml to be precise. Secondly, the scent, and lastly, instead of it just being restricted to your mane, this is a head-to-toe hydrator that works just as well for the body as it does hair.
Rose scented products often gets a bad rep as they can fall under the ‘smells like grandma’ category, but this oil is thankfully far, far away from that. As well as being reminiscent of Turkish delight, the scent also has notes of lychee, cedarwood, white musk and bergamot, making it smell sweet (but not sickly), fruity and fresh. And because of the long-lasting fragrance of it, it also doubles up as a hair perfume which is just dreamy.
The consistency is what sets this apart from other oils on the market, though; while being incredibly nourishing and hydrating thanks to the blend of rosehip, shea and absinthium oils, it is also really lightweight, making it suitable for all hair types. This is magic to the ears of people with fine, limp-looking hair because while we’d love to be able to use hair oils and get that silky, glossy finish, they just make out hair look flat and greasy. So, because of the lightweight consistency, there’s no chance of this oil OUAI-ing your hair down (sorry).
The lightweight consistency also bodes well for the body because while the oil does a great job of hydrating the skin and making our limbs look glowy and sun kissed, it doesn’t take an age to sink in which means that you don’t have to wait around for hours after application to put your clothes on, making it the perfect body moisturiser for day-to-day use.
Is this oil already in your beauty arsenal, or has this tempted you to pick one up?
