My sister got this for me for christmas and I was really excited, I'd heard a lot of good things about this brand and I really wanted to love it. But it was sort of meh for me. The smell was horrid first off and frankly I'd rather have a dirty smell than the one this put on my hair. It was too chemically. It did a good job of soaking up the oil, but my hair just felt really dirty afterwards. There was so much product buildup it didn't feel clean at all! I hated it! If you want your hair to have volume and A LOT of texture this is a good product to use, but that's not really what I was looking for so I wasn't a fan.
After using many, many dry shampoos this is my absolutely hands down favorite. I have dark brown hair and it's so great to not have to worry about looking like my roots are gray.
I use this as I do any other dry shampoo. I spray short bursts around my roots at my forehead and on my sides by my ears/temples. I give it a minute of so and I then I turn my head over (usually in the bathroom, yes the "flakies" that fall off are dark brown) and sort of rub it in with my fingertips. After that I brush as normal. Good bye oil and hello volume!
Yes, your fingertips are going to be brown, the product itself is brown. It washes away quickly with soap and water. If you overspray and hit your skin it is easily cleaned away with a towel. After using this for almost 2 years I've gotten pretty good about where to spray it. Of note - I only wash my hair 2x a week now, when I do wash the water has a brownish tint, because you are washing away all the dry shampoo. Don't let that scare you. It's never stained my shower, I just rinse it right down the drain.
I've gotten this at Ulta (they have Buy 1 get 1 50% sales on this product often, which combined with the $3.50 off coupon makes it pretty darn cheap), but I know it is (or at least was) sold on Amazon as well (although if you go that route shipping takes a while because it's through another vendon, not acutually Amazon themselves.
Overall if you have dark hair and want to use dry shampoo - this would be my #1 rec for you.
LOVEEE THIS!!! I've tried a lot of other dry shampoos from high end to drug store and this one is hands down the best!!! It makes my hair look clean after just minuets of applying! Smells good as a plus and gives volume. The only down side about this is that it can be messy if you're not really careful...it can stain your clothes and your hands and your face. But I love my hair result and have repurchased this 3 times!
This stuff is way better than the regular white dry shampoo since I have light brown hair. This actually slightly covers my grays too. I'm a little worried about what would happen if I got caught in the rain... would I have brown streaks down my face? Anyway, I don't like having white powder in my hair. This looks natural and is perfect for the days I don't wash. I only wash my hair every other day. I also really like that this doesn't end up cruchy like hairspray. I've tried some try shampoos that do that and their awful.
I was super excited to try this based on youtuber, Tati's glowing reviews. I am trying to shampoo my hair less and like the idea of a dry shampoo. My only con in the oast was the white, chalky cast left on my darkish roots (growing out my highlights). Enter this new product. This morning I was on third day hair. My hair is dry, so oiliness is never really an issue for me. I was looking really just to refresh my hair, add some volume and make it smell fresh. After doing my makeup, I carefully sprayed the sides of my hair, the top along my part and the back of my hair, underneath. I waited a bit, then sort of massaged my hair a bit to loosen it. Well, this stuff does give volume, but at what cost!? My hands, first of all were completely brown! Then I walked into the bathroom and saw my forehead was brown, as were my ears! There was no fresh scent and my hair looed very matte and powdered. There was still a white cast and now I can't run my fingers through my hair...at all!!! This product is in the "epic fail" category of my book. Maybe someone with very straight, oily hair will benefit from this, but not me. I also purchased the "blonde" version of this and will test it on third day hair too, just to see if there is a difference. Maybe I should just put my hair up on day three and be done with it!
So I ordered this online at nailpolishcanada.com because the stores out here dont carry this. (canada) I like the look of it. leaves the hair looking less oily and matte.. and has a smell to it.. not bad or anything like hairspray but a lingering fragrance. I dont mind it. It does the job. the only thing is that it really dries out my hair. I would still use it and do use it for those lazy days where i skip washing the hair :)
This is my all time favorite dry shampoo. I use it for multiple days after I wash my hair and it works wonders! I love the original kind as well but this works well with my dark hair color. A trick I've discovered that amps the product up is to spray it, let it sit for about 5 minutes and then blow dry your hair on low for a minute. Instant, clean looking volume. The only con I could find is after 3 or 4 days of using this product, it can leave a little brown build up on my scalp. I wash my hair around every 4 to 5 days so I don't mind. It works so well I can overlook this small flaw. It's an amazing product. I've used multiple cans and plan to buy plenty more.
This is the only dry shampoo I keep on repurchasing. It makes my hair voluminous and grease free. The color blends into my dark hair perfectly and doesnt make my roots stiff and disgusting. The only thing I dont like about this product is that it gets EVERYWHERE!! I have to clean my vanity weekly because it gets coated with this brown dry shampoo. Other then it getting everywhere I think this product is perfect for absorbing unwanted oils and giving lots of volume.
I bought this at TJ Maxx only because they were out of the regular formula. This is a useable product but I don't like it as much as the original/regular. I have medium fine hair and use dry shampoo to add a little extra body. I find this formula to be slightly heavier than the original and my hair doesn't get the same bounce. I thought I would like that it was tinted but it really serves no purpose for me. I never had any issues with the regular formula turning my hair white since I apply sparingly and if you use this too close to your hairline it will make your forehead and scalp look dirty from overspray. I have to make sure I use this before my makeup goes on. I also don't like running my fingers through my hair and having it tranfer under my nails. It does absorb oil and give a little extra body but I won't repurchase.
