I Curl My Hair Every Day, but This Air Dry Foam May Convince Me to Skip Styling For Good
I'll admit it — I'm not very adventurous when it comes to my hair. Yes, there was once a time (read: my 16-year-old emo phase) when I would dye my bob haircut black or platinum or fire-engine red on a whim; however, since my mid-20s or so, my cut, colour, and style have pretty much been the same. There have been different levels of blond-ness, but the middle part and loose beach waves have remained consistent (shout-out to the geniuses at Whiteroom Brooklyn!). I'm definitely one of those people who, once I found a style that works for me, have stuck to it through thick and thin.
That means that almost every morning — except for the days when I'm feeling lazy and throw it in a messy bun — I blow-dry and curl my hair (I like to think I've perfected the art of the imperfect beach wave). But sometimes, I just don't have time to go through the whole styling process, or I know that weather like rain or extreme humidity is going to ruin my masterpiece the second I walk out the door.
Enter: Ouai Air Dry Foam ($28) — the only product that lets me skip styling and let my hair air-dry. I have pretty fine hair, but there's a lot of it, and it tends to get super frizzy when I let it air-dry on its own. Ouai's foam is super light, so it lets my natural texture shine through while making my waves more uniform and less all over the place. Here's how I use it to style my wet hair without using any heat whatsoever.
