I feel lately I’ve been bombarding you guys with posts on hair care! I hope that interests you, because I know I appreciate as much information as I can get on keeping my hair healthy & strong. Some may be thinking, “if her last hair care post raved about how much she loved the Ouai Shampoo & Conditioner, why isn’t she still using that?” Well my friends, this is a little thing I like to call product addiction, and I need an intervention. I love trying the next best thing, and that’s what happened here.
I wanted to try out another shampoo & conditioner that was hydrating for my brittle & dry hair (although it is much improved in the past few months). I was recommended Dry Bar “Sake Bomb” by my friend at Sephora. She told me I would love it because its great for blondes with damaged hair and it really hydrates and repairs. I told her my struggle with my hair being too soft right after I wash it, and how I need to wait a few days for it to get dirty before I can do anything to it. She told me that this is perfect because it coats the hair with a pearl finish, not only leaving a shine, but also a little bit of thickness.
When first using the shampoo I realized that a little really does go a long way. It lathered up right away; something I’m not use to with high-end luxury shampoos. I genuinely felt it cleaned my hair and really got up in there. Once I rinsed it out it did leave my hair really knotted though, almost to the point where I couldn’t get my fingers through it. I have noticed this happening with other brands as well, and it usually fixes once I use the conditioner.
So that’s exactly what happened. Once I tried out the conditioner, all the tangles went away and my hair felt so soft and satin-like when having the water run over my head. Ahh, such a good feeling! The conditioner really moisturized my hair, so much so that I felt I didn’t need to follow up with a hair mask (even though I did anyways).
Now to put it to the real test, I wanted to know if this “pearlized finish” was going to thicken my hair and make it more manageable while being clean! The Verdict: Meh; so, so. Definitely a lot more thicker than what I usually have to work with, but didn’t completely fix the problem. Beggars cant be choosers, I guess. That’s not to say I’m not happy with the results. I’ll continue using its because it’s the best thing I’ve come across so far, but I’m still searching. So picky, I know. I will say that letting it air-dry improved the thickness & texture compared to blow-drying it out.
Well, people, there you have it. Not much more to say, it is just shampoo and conditioner. But, healthy hair is good hair. Until the next post…
Stay happy & healthy!
