I bought this 6 weeks ago and I love it! The first time I used it I had woken up late with no time to shower or wash my greasy 3rd day hair. So I sprayed this all over my roots, tousled my hair, and gently brushed through. And just like that I had 1st day hair again. This stuff soaks up oil like crazy and leaves my hair so soft and full of body. Since then I have used it in other ways too. One morning I put too much coconut oil in my hair. What a mess. So I sprayed on some "Rockin It" Dry Shampoo. Problem solved. I've also used it as a root lifter and volumizer while blow drying which totally eliminates the need for mousse. And the scent is awesome too....like lemon verbena and fresh-cut roses I think. This product easily gets 5 lippies. It's easy to use, effective, versatile, low cost, and has a great scent.
TIPS: If the nozzle gets clogged hold it under hot running water for a few seconds and wipe off. There will be a little powder residue during application so do not use while standing over the computer keyboard like I did. If you still have powder remaining after applying and brushing through you have used too much product. Don't worry, just dampen the powdery areas with a little spritz of water and proceed with styling.
I read some of the reviews after I wrote this and I was shocked at the low ratings. I do have to say that this is only the 3rd dry shampoo I have ever used so I don't have a lot to compare this to. The only others I used were Tresemme Fresh Start and Studio Grafix Invisible Dry. The Tresemme was very tacky-feeling on my scalp and the scent was too overpowering. I found the Studio Grafix to be totally ineffective. It did nothing to improve my oily roots on 2nd day hair.
Ok. This is not the worst dry shampoo I tried in term of efficacy. But the smell... The smell of it is simply disgusting. It anchor in your nose and never fades. Oh my! Just remembering it makes me not so well. On another hand, it kinda do the job, but I tried a bunch of way more satisfying dry shampoos! It also leaves your hair full of "sediments" because it is really heavy and way too white to be ignored. Anyway, trust me, as some others reviewers noticed, just for the smell, it is not worth to buy. I really don't recommend it!
This works pretty well as a dry shampoo. It takes care of the slightly greasy feel at the roots and adds a little root volume. Personally, I do not mind the fragrance or the whiteness of the product, both dissipate as I do my brush through after applying the product. I would repurchase, if needed. My plan is with my next can to try a different brand because I have only tried two. However, I would repurchase this if I don't find anything surpasses it, per se. It works. Absorbs the greasies on a day 2 or 3 after shampoo and gives volume.
Sometimes I buy products on impluse without checking the reviews and I need to stop doing that! It was no surprise to me that this has a 3.3 rating. I can tell you this, this goes on the top 10 list for worst beauty products ever purchased in my life. In order to make this list, a product must suck in every single possible category. Reasons why you should never buy this. I don't know why I'm saying this review in my head with a Robert De Niro voice but I am.
1. Smell: You know what this reminds me of? You know? I'll tell you! It reminds me of that carpet sprinkle **** from the 80s. You know, that smelly *** fake floral scented white powder you sprinkle on your carpets and vaccum it up. Yeah, that stuff and it smells so awful that I had to immediatley wash my hair. Well, that got my lazy butt to finally wash my hair. This is the anti-dry shampoo because it skinks so bad that you can't wait to scrub the hell out of this in the shower.
2. Application: Fire extinguisher. Just use the P.A.S.S method as you would putting out a fire. This stuff shoots out of the can in mega speed with balls of white wet powder. It comes out heavy, uneven, wet and white.
3. Performance: Prior to using this, my scalp was mildly oily at the roots. After using this, my scalp was saturated, smelly and white. After brushing it all out, it made my hair feel sticky and slimy.
The can stopped spraying out actual product about half-way through the can; it still sprayed the strong citrus scent, but no actual powder or whatever it is that absorbs the oil. When it was working, I wasn't really impressed w/the results anyway, I'd say it was just mediocre at absorbing oil. I also found this to be rather difficult to shampoo out, no matter how many times I rinsed/lathered/repeated! Batiste works so much better & the smell isn't as overpowering -- it's a few bucks more, but definitely worth it!
Got2B Rocking it encore fresh dry shampoo - It's an ok product that I keep purchasing when away from home again and again because you can find it easily at WalMart for about 5$. I really prefer Batiste but this one it not too bad when you don't have anything else. I find it does not leave my hairs with a really clean feeling like Batiste does, but at least they don't look too greasy.
I like the lemon scent and the packaging but I'll not repurchase unless I really don't find anything else. It's not bad, it's just... meh.
I don't understand why this product has such a low rating. This and batisse are the best drugstore dry shampoos in my opinion. This soaks up oil and gives your hair volume. To me it has a citrus scent which I don't mind. Its inexpensive too, I think I paid around $4 or $5. I don't notice any residue on my hair but I do have blonde hair so I'm not sure how this will work on dark hair. I'm definitely going to continue to buy this. It is much better than the dove, suave, tressemme, l'oreal, and garnier dry shampoos that I've tried.
This smells terrible. It smells like lemons with a ton of chemicals. And the smell lingers like no other! I can't stand it. Soaks up the oils but the smell is too much. Quite frankly, I like doves dry shampoo a lot better.
I truly love this product! It makes my hair smell like a big fresh lemon! When i spray it on my hair it feel cool and refreshing. After i rub it with my finger it do volumize my hair! I will normally use the volumizing hair spray in this line to add extra volume. But sadly i don't fell those volume last for all day. It do make my hair feel great for a day long.
But sadly it went out very fast. I use it for 2 weeks and it completely gone. I use it every 2 night.
I will repurchase it again.
This is my "go-to" dry shampoo! I would definitely recommend using this product! :)
It absorbs a lot of the excess oils in my hair, and it does not weigh my hair down at all!!
It does not leave any heavy or white residue in hair and the product is easy to apply and work through my hair with my fingers. It has a decent citrus scent to it, and leaves you feeling fresh! :)
This product works MUCH BETTER than Tresemme's Fresh Start dry shampoos and Dove's Refresh+Care Invigorating dry shampoo!
