Even with the support of a fleshed-out flat iron waves tutorial, one can fall victim to the throes of flat-rooted, lackluster bends. That’s where OUAI Dry Texture Foam (DTF) comes in. Unfazed by flat hair and greasy roots, our invisible texturizing foam adds allover thickness and grit, making it the missing and final step in your flat iron waves routine.  Sure, you can have the flat iron waves technique down, but if the finished result is begging for body and fullness, there’s one solution: Dry Texture Foam. Think of it as a feather-light pomade that infuses your hairstyle with the kind of undone French girl texture you’ve been perpetually pinning and saving on the ‘gram (the proof is in the before/after photos below).

Using Wheat Proteins and Bentonite Powder, Dry Texture Foam adds thickness, body, and gritty texture wherever you need it. Our favorite way to use it is on dry hair from the ends up after we’ve just finished creating bends or S-waves. It’s never sticky or crunchy yet it adds the perfect hold to maintain body and volume all day long, be it on short or long hair, or on a flirty ponytail. And if you’re wondering whether it’ll make your mane frizzy, the answer’s no.

Our founder Jen Atkin loves to thicken and refresh second day hair by massaging a quarter size dollop of the foam into the scalp from the back to the front. Then for added piecey-ness, she likes to shape the ends with OUAI Matte Pomade. Try it once for lived-in looking texture à la after-party Kate Moss.

Pack Dry Texture Foam wherever you go and never fuss about blah bends again.
