This is a really good dry shampoo. The packaging needs improvement for sure. I pour the powder directly on my hand and shake it into my hairline, crown and some throughout my hair and the volume is restored and my hair smells clean.
I recently dyed my hair brown and this is NOT FOR BRUNETTES! It made my roots look grey no matter how much I brushed it through and massaged my scalp! Boooo!
Anyways, great product for lighter shades.
This was my first shot at dry shampoos. I bought it after reading reviews on Sephora. I never learn, I've bought many failed products after reading raving reviews on Sephora before discovering MUA. I wash my hair everyday because it's thin and gets oily after a day but I do use a gentle sulfate-free shampoo. I thought this dry shampoo would be perfect for lazy days when I just don't want to wash my hair. It just didn't work for me. It didn't really absorb oil and didn't feel clean at all. It also didn't volumize my hair the way dry shampoos are supposed to. It just felt like I had a lot of product in my hair and it weighed it down. Good thing Sephora has great return service otherwise I would be completely disappointed.
I got a generous sample of this from Sephora and I used it for several week to try to get rid of my oily roots on my 2nd-day-hair. It's OK but nowhere near as effective as the Oscar Blandi Pronto dry shampoo powder. This one also doesn't last very long so your roots are oily again a few hours after using it. This one is a white powder that's visible except on the lightest blonde hair. The powder is so fine that it's messy to work with and seems to get all over my face when I'm using it. I'll stick to my Pronto for now, even though its fragrance is overpowering.
I have literally dozens of dry shampoos, and this is one of my favorites. It smells nice, and has a texture that is neither too grainy nor too smooth. It absorbs cleanly and invisibly in hair, and the result lasts for hours without getting cakey. I'm a fan.
I managed somehow to get a mini of this product, marked as 0.10 oz or 3 g. This little size is perfect to carry around in my makeup bag and I happen to like the applicator nozzle. I use the tip to squeeze out the product where I want it to go. This is great for making my roots look fresh & non-greasy if I haven't gotten around to washing my hair. I have dark brown hair and I have to be careful to blend in to avoid that dreaded white-roots look. I went in to work one day with greasy roots, used this product, and wow----moments later, my hair looked fresh and bouncy. I don't know that I buy this since I have some other hair powders that I have bought to try out, namely one from Not Your Mother's and the other from Schwartzkof. But, I found this to be really handy, so I refilled it with the NYM powder and will be trying that out next.
This does absorb oil..however, there is no clean effect to your hair. My hair had no volume, no body, no real style after I used this powder. It just mattified the oil..and that was it.
I went back to Oscar Blandi's Pronto Dry Shampoo powder! It's like magic...it mattifies oil while giving your hair awesome body/style afterwards..even after a sweaty, long run! I try to top it..but i dont think it exists. I have fine hair so maybe this just wasn't made for me.
This product is a bit gimmicky with the "anti aging" label - it's just corn starch with some added ingredients. Corn starch alone will give you more body / style than this product..and the applicator tip sucks and gives you way too much product at a time. Not a fan.
Best dry shampoo out on the market and I've tried them all at Sephora and Ulta. This product really works!
My hair doesn't stay white & it really takes away any oil residue. Also has a nice smell.
Con-Horribly packaging, not easy to use the lid/top, I gave up. What I did was was unscrew the top and I just pore it unto my hand. I also cut out a plastic sandwich bag to go under the cap so I can travel with this item and it won't spill anywhere.
Loooove this dry shampoo. Best one I've used so far. Much better than the tigi and sexy hair ones I tried first. The product made my hair very clean looking on the second day without wash, which is no small feat because I use tons of smoothing serums and hairsprays.
I have tried many dry shampoos. I love the ojon one, but decided to try this because it's non-aerosol. (and cheaper than the fekkai one) The scent is very pleasant and not as strong as the ojon one, It complimented my It's a 10 products, smelling very similar. I have thick wavy hair and was able to... GET THIS............ go 5 DAYS without washing my hair! It did not smell nor look greasy whatsoever. It also absorbs the oils almost instantly after being brushed out, leaving no visible product.
I was extremely disappointed in this product. I used to use Oscar Blandi's dry shampoo; it worked fine, but I was pretty ambivalent about it due to the price. After reading great reviews for Klorane's dry shampoo (the non-aerosol pump version), I went to that and LOVED it, but the pump sucks. I've been through two bottles of the Klorane, loving the product but loathing the applicator (it works well at first but then gets stuck and always squirts way too much or hardly any at all), and when I went to buy a new one today, I thought I'd try Alterna's. It was $20 at my local beauty supply store for a 2.65 oz. bottle with a thin needle tip, which appeared to me to be infinitely better than Klorane's because it'd enable me to apply the dry shampoo as I prefer to do (squeezing some into my palms, rubbing them together, and running my hands through the parts of my hair that need help).
I tried it out when I got home and was hugely disappointed. True, the applicator is far better than Klorane's, and it didn't leave a visible residue or white cast on my hair (which is straight, fine, and currently dark blond), but the product is just not up to par. I started with using the amount I'd normally use of the Klorane, saw no difference, so I kept adding more gradually until I finally gave up. Even after using probably 15 times the amount of product I'd normally use with the Klorane (with great results), I still saw only a negligible difference in my hair. (For what it's worth, this test was about 24 hours after I last washed my hair, and my hair had no styling products in it; it looked slightly dirty, but not overly greasy at all.) With Klorane's dry shampoo, I can go an extra day between in-shower shampoos, but Alterna's doesn't even add an extra two hours for me. This is definitely going back to the store! *** UPDATE 10/1/10: Now I've tried Batiste's dry shampoo too, which I like much better (as much as Klorane's, and it's cheaper than Klorane's, so I'm sticking to it). So, if you already have and like the Batiste one, I wouldn't recommend experimenting with Alterna's; it doesn't even come CLOSE to working as well!
