One type of hair product that I’m still searching high and low for is a moisturizing mist. The weather is getting so much nicer (and hotter!) and being outside a lot more can leave my hair super fried! I need something that can refresh my curls, leaving them just as soft and moisturized as when I left the house. When the folks over at Ouidad gave me the opportunity to review their Botanical Boost Spray, I was all over it! Now, I must confess, I wasn’t the biggest fan of their products. I tried some of them in the past and wasn’t too thrilled. This time around though, my hair is different from the transitioning days so it was worth a shot!
A little about the product – it’s a moisture infusing and refreshing spray with ingredients like Aloe Vera and other botanical extracts. It promises to preserve moisture, eliminate frizz, and make detangling a breeze. You can use it right after a shampoo or in the morning to refresh your curls before heading out. The spray itself is lightweight with no oils or waxes that can weigh hair down.
After a month of using the Botanical Spray first thing in the morning or midday, I thought it was okay. The spray nozzle, which is one of the first things I check out with a hair spray, helps distribute the product easily. The 8.5 oz bottle is perfect to put into a travel or beach bag when you need to take it on the go. The spray itself is light, absorbing into my hair quickly and not leaving it greasy. My curls did feel soft and brought them back to life. However, it didn’t last too long though, only a few hours and I needed to retouch my hair again. In the morning I couldn’t completely ditch my regular moisturizer either. As for the detangling aspect, my hair is way too thick for this mist to handle in that department so I didn’t even try!
All in all, I think the spray is perfect to touch up hair on the go or right after a long day on the beach if you’re not going straight home. If your hair isn’t as kinky and coily as mine, I have a feeling it would stay moisturized a lot longer (the site recommends this for wavy and curly hair). So with that said, I see packing this in my beach bag for a day on the sand and not part of my everyday hair stash.
Have you tried any products from Ouidad? Are there any I should try?
