I highly recommend giving this dry shampoo a chance.
I have tried Aveeno, Dove, Tresemme, Pssst, Batiste and Suave. This takes the cake.
Let me just also note, I have very oily/sensitive/acne prone skin. Which includes my scalp. All of the other dry shampoos I have tried have either broken out my scalp or my face around my hair line. Also, NONE of them have had such a wonderful lasting power against second day "grime" as this has. Meaning, if I found one that didn't effect anything else, the lasting power was absolute crap. I aurally have a dark brown, multi-tonal hair color, but I dye it a dark black blue color so finding a dry shampoo that doesn't turn me old lady gray has been difficult as well. The other thing I started noticing about dry shampoo's is that they all have a starch in them...aluminum, corn or otherwise...and this one has rice starch, which is a little less toxic.This also has wondrous volume that lasts and allows you to style your hair whatever way you want without getting in the way.You can also use it on freshly washed hair for some added volume and style ability / texture.
So as you have probably guess by now...This is my HG dry shampoo. It meets all my expectations and more. The sent is very pleasant, but I know scent is a very personal thing so I really cant say everyone will love it. (I don't like really girly fragrances) Anyway, so here is the best way to use this amazing product: Section hair; spray a small amount in a line along the roots of the section; message in with fingertips; let it soak in for 5 minutes; brush and/ or blow our hair. Ta-da! :)
I wasn't expecting too much from this dry shampoo, since it was the cheapest one my drugstore had in stock. But this stuff works so well! I have very oily hair, so skipping a day of shampooing is impossible for me without dry shampoo. This product never gave me any problems. It sprayed evenly and the tip never clogged, it has a nice, kind of fruity scent, and it absorbed my oil for the whole day. It does leave a little bit of a white cast, which isn't a huge issue for me since I have blonde hair, but it may be a little much for those with darker hair. I think if you really work the product in with your fingertips, though, you can probably get rid of most of the white color. Overall, this is one of the better dry shampoos I've tried, and it's only about $5, so definitely give this one a shot!
Lovin' it so far!
Unlike another dry shampoo I've used, this really doesn't weigh my hair down. The other one frequently made my hair look even dirtier, no matter how much or how little of it I used. I have not had that problem so far with Rockin' It.
I think the difference is that Rockin' It has only six ingredients - rice starch, alcohol, propellants, and fragrance - whereas the other had the same ingredients, plus clay, fruit extracts, and about a dozen other things.
Pricing on it varies wildly, though, with some retailers charging twice as much as others, so you do need to shop around.
Smells like aerosol deodorant which isn't good or bad. The tip will clog up quick if you aren't depressing the spray nozzle all the way down an each spray. Pressing it all the way down as far as it would go each time eliminated the clogging issue for me. It does indeed spray out a white powder BUT I found by really working it into my scalp and roots like a regular shampoo eliminated any visible residue and I'm a dark brunette. I mean get those fingertips in there really good like the stylish at the salon does when you get a hair wash. The idea is to work the powder completely into the roots and scalp so just spraying it in and brushing it out isn't gonna get it. All dry shampoos are meant to soak up excess oil and deodorize your scalp. This product does it just fine and for a fraction of the price of most others. I normally use an unscented body powder instead of a dry shampoo product. It works just as well but again, you have to really work it in.
this sprays out very visible white powder i guess in aerosol form. I got about three uses out of this by the forth time i tried using it instead of the normal white spray it started spurting out what looked like hair spray. Shaking the bottle around it still felt like there was product in it. but nada...
it works but if you have dark hair even on bright red hair like me you will still get a sort of white/grey cast
the number thing i hated about this was the smell. At first it smells like lemon. Then throughout the day it starts smelling like pen ink. Imagine writting an entire essay in pen ink then sniffing the paper. Thats exactly what i think my hair smells like after using this.
My biggest fear is overwashing my hair and overdrying it to shreds so I got into dry shampoos.
I've tried Marc Jacobs, Batiste and finally Got2B. This is the best one yet I would have to say!
1) Marc Jacobs works but is $12 a can. Runs out way too fast is and pricey.
2) Batiste leaves really really bad white powdery marks in which i just rather not use it
3) Got2B is the winner! its affordable at about $5-$7 and it works wonders. No powdery mess and doesn't smell funky.
Three reviews in one - you know what to do :)
Dry shampoo is my saviour and I was hoping to find something a bit cheaper than Batisse brand, which is what I normally buy. In regards to this product, I don't like the scent (just not pleasant to me) and I find the particles to be larger, making my hair look dusty. I also didn't find it made it look less oily. Back to Batisse.
Not a bad product for the price. Packaging could be better, after 1 use the hissing noise started up, I had to fiddle with the nozzle to get it to finally stop. It does leave a white residue, but provided you follow directions, do not overuse the product and properly work into hair, it does go away. I have medium brown hair, I'm unsure of whether this would be a good product on very dark hair.
Product does what it says - helps eliminate oiliness and skip a day of shampoo.
Will wait to see whether the bottle leaks like how it does for many others, then will decide on repurchase.
I like this stuff a lot for the price. It's a good Dry Shampoo for when you're on the go or at the drugstore and need something quick. My hair was super dirty when I used it from going to the gym two days in a row and not having time to wash it before we left the house. It seriously made my hair soft and shiny again with tons of bounce. This product doesnt last very long though, so if you're going to use it really often I would probably find something else. Otherwise it's really great for the price.
I just bought this product today when I ran out of my L'Oreal texture dry shampoo. I was not expecting much for a $3 can of dry shampoo. WOW I was wrong.I didnt wash my hair for two days and It was oily and dirty looking. After I used this, It looked clean, fresh, like I just took the time to shower and do my hair all over again. Much better than the L'Oreal. It does come out white but, after I rubed it in, it disappears. I love the smell of this! Its so fresh. I cant believe it works so well! I have used a tresseme dry shampp and a L'Oreal Professional Dry Shampoo, this $3 can, blows those two out of the water!
