Loooove this stuff. I use dry shampoo nearly every day because I have really oily hair but showering at night works better with my schedule and by the time I wake up the next day my hair is usually pretty greasy already. I've had really good luck with a lot of Dove hair care products in the past, so I had high hopes for this. All my expectations were met! This is a really fab product.
First off, the scent. Omgggg this is probably the best smelling dry shampoo I've ever used. It has a really clean, fruity-floral scent that I just cannot get enough of. I have quite the dry shampoo collection, but I was always reaching for this one because it smells so good! The scent lingers in your hair all day, so if your hair is really dirty it will completely cover up that gross dirty hair smell.
This sprays out totally dry, so you don't need to wait to brush it through your hair, which is great if you're in a rush in the morning. I hate dry shampoos that spray out wet and take 10-15 minutes to totally dry to a powder finish.
Whether I'm super oily or just a little bit greasy, this totally takes care of the oiliness all day and doesn't leave my hair feeling sticky like some dry shampoos do. It's not the cheapest dry shampoo from the drugstore, but I will still continue to pick this up because it works so well!
At first, this product works pretty well if you are heavily greasy. If you're just starting to do the whole "wash your hair every other day instead of every day" thing, then it's expected that you'll be a little extra greasy.
I don't recommend this dry shampoo though because after the first use, I found it heavily weighed down my hair. I gave it another many tries until I finished the entire can, and still no luck. I'd brush it out, follow instructions, but in the end, my hair would feel "hard" and heavy. I'd advise against using spray dry shampoos overall.
This one was also very very heavily scented, which gave me a headache after a while. That scent realllllllllllyyyyy lingers.
The best dry shampoo I've used.
About my hair: I have blonde hair that gets super oily. As in, I take a shower at night and wake up the next morning looking like I haven't washed my hair at all. I'm not sure why this happens, I've tried different shampoos and conditioners to fix it but nothing has worked so I seriously rely on dry shampoo to fix my problem.
I've tried Batiste dry shampoo and I loved it..at least I thought so. Simply because it made my hair look less greasy. When I ran out of that, I went to the drugstore to get another but I just didn't want to spend $9-$10 on it so I saw the Dove one and thought I'd give it a try. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and I LOVE IT. As soon as I use it it looks like my hair is SUPER clean and even has a ton of volume. My hair has never looked so fresh.
I give it a couple shakes and spray it on my roots and then use my fingertips to rub it in for about 20-30 seconds and then brush through it. The packaging is adorable, it smells nice, absorbs a ton of oil and doesn't leave a white tint, it does leave some sort of residue though, but not bad. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that it leaves hair feeling a little too textured and dry feeling. Over all I love this and will keep repurchasing.
Love this! It gets rid of oil completely and smells fresh :)
I legit used this three times and the fourth time I tried to use this the can was empty. I was super confused so I asked my mom if she had been using it but she wasn't. So this huge can is uhhh.... misleading I guess. The scent is ok but when I use this it's all I smell to the point where it overpowers my perfume. Just because we haven't washed our hair doesn't mean it stinks DOVE.
I'm actually quite sad to see bad reviews on this product, only because I'm one of the few that actually love this stuff granted I've never tried batiste but I do have a bottle to try out once I'm finished with my current dry shampoo which is, in fact, this one.
For background, my hair is colored, slightly on the dry side, and I'm a firm believer of not washing your hair everyday. It may be embarrassing but I sometimes go 3 days without washing it. That's where this product comes in. I saw a review on Youtube where the guru was raving about how good and cheap this product was and that she would rotate it with batiste every now and then so I thought I gave it a shot since the dry shampoo I was using before that was Psst! and I didn't quite love it. Perfect timing because I was going on a trip to Vegas and decided to buy dry shampoo for my trip in case I needed it. So off I went to my local Target and picked it up around the $3-4 mark.
During my trip in Vegas I, along with my girlfriends, used the dry shampoo in between showers and to give our clean hair some volume. It worked out nicely and the smell didn't put us off too too much- unless we were on the fifth girl who was using the can, in the same room, then the smell built up quickly. The scent isn't bad but it is strong like other reviewers state, it's a fresh scent and I neither hate it nor love it. It's neutral.
Fast forward to a recent incident in which I had put hair oil on my hair the night before and woke up late for work the next day. Work was followed by school and by the time I actually assessed myself in the mirror I was cringing at how awful and greasy my hair looked due to the hair oil from the night before! Thankfully I work right near a Target so I bought a can and sprayed away in the car letting it sit while I drove myself to school. In the school parking lot I grabbed my brush and combed out any residue and fixed my hair so it didn't look like a hot mess. I was very pleased at how well this product dried up all the oil and looked like my hair was actually clean as opposed to how it looked several hours before! Truly life saving. So now I stash one in my gym bag which is in my car for those just in case moments.
I would say though that this has caused me to have dandruff but that can be due to the fact that the dry shampoo builds up over time. I have been able to get rid of my dandruff by using a clarifying shampoo/anti-dandruff shampoo on days I heavily use the product. Also, the can is bulky and I would much prefer a skinnier bottle with the same amount of product in it, but I'll still take what I can get with the packaging. Would I repurchase? I already have!
Overall, I really love this stuff but that may change when I do use my bottle of batiste that I've been saving. Who knows! But for now this is the one as far as my cheap, affordable, go to product to save my x-day old hair.
Does a great job keeping my hair oil free all day! Smells good too it does not do much Volumizing like it says but other than that this is a great dry shampoo under $4
I'm forever on the hunt for a good dry shampoo that's cheaper than batiste. This doesn't cut it.. While it wasn't as bad as tresseme (made me more oily instead of absorbing oil) or suave (breakout city and migraine inducing scent) lol it was still pretty bad... It didn't work well at all and left crazy white dandruff in my hair no matter how much I tried to brush it out. It's possible my hair is much too oily for this and it may work well for people with regular hair trying to extend a style rather than someone with a real oil problem. As for the scent yea it was strong but I liked it. Oh another thing, even though it is bad at absorbing oil, it makes the hair very tangly somehow.
I don't relish writing neg reviews, but when it's warranted...
I would make all of the same comments others have: ineffective, too heavily scented, average sized can yet contents seem to disappear quickly.
I too bought it b/c it was on sale and Batiste was unavail at the time. This is one of those instances when a sale item is not a good deal. Sorry Dove, back to the drawing board with this one.
