OUAI Matte Pomade OUAI Hair Oil OUAI Smooth Spray

Look up the word multi-hyphenate in the dictionary and you’ll find a picture of Matte Pomade next to it (right there with Rose Hair & Body Oil). You already know and love our medium-control finishing paste for its ability to give long and short hair piecey French girl texture, but did you know you could also use the pliable paste in your roots? Curious? Keep reading to discover three ways to use the color safe, pretty-smelling pomade.


1. In your roots 

Just like Dry Shampoo Foam works to add volume when rubbed into roots, so does Matte Pomade. Start with a dime-sized dab of the moldable paste, rub between fingers, then jeuge your roots. Beeswax builds soft thickness and texture, producing a sexy tousled look that boasts long lasting va-va-volume. Bonus: You don’t have to worry about your roots looking greasy thanks to the pomade’s matte finish.

2. On unruly ends

French girl hair? Matte Pomade, like, invented it. But seriously, the mid-weight finishing paste gives both long and short hair piecey texture for that effortless je ne sais quoi. After you finish styling your hair or post air dry, simply rub a dime-sized amount between hands (the heat enhances its texture) then sandwich your ends between your palms while working in the pomade. Kaolin Clay delivers a pliable, polished hold and takes ends from dry and unruly to healthy looking.

3. For fighting frizzy flyaways

Take mohawk buns or a snatched pony to the next level by banishing flyaways with a couple swipes of Matte Pomade. Its medium-control is strong enough to calm frizz but still lightweight for never-crunchy definition. Plus, it’s color safe and contains intoxicating floral notes of Violet, Gardenia, Ylang Ylang, and White Musk—the same smell in your other OUAI faves Hair Oil, Memory Mist, and Finishing Crème.
