Packaging sucks; it's hard to control how much of it comes out, so you end up with a ton of product in your hair. No matter how much I try to rub, it leaves a grey cast. Worse of all, it does NOTHING to get rid of the oil. I put it on before my hair got too oily, as I do with the Batiste dry shampoo, and it left such a sticky residue that it made my scalp look oily. Also, it left my hair extremely flat. Hopefully I can return it, because this sucks. It's a decent value at $15 (in Canada, after tax) but baby powder is a better alternative but I prefer Batiste, even if it is a bit pricy.
-packaging: hard to control amount of product that is dispensed
-didn't do anything for my super greasy hair. I tried putting the product in before it got too greasy, after it got greasy and it did nothing for my hair.
I'll be sticking to my Salon Grafix Invisible dry shampoo!
My hair seemed nicer AND CLEANER before using this product. I don't know what it was about this product but it made my hair SO unmangeable, rough and even more oily. I guess it's incompatible with asian hair?
Smells so incredibly good, lasts forever, absorbed all the oil immediately and left me with a matte, fragrant, soft, clean looking hair with great volume. The only con is that if you have dark hair you would have to use very little because it's a white powder and you might end up with your hair looking grey. I have a really fair blond hair color so to me it's a godsend!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it smells soooooo goooooooood.
I read reviews online and everyone described it as "citrusy, grapefruity fresh" which didn't appeal to me, I'm usually not one for citrusy smells. But ohhh myy gooddd it smells so good that I put it in my hair even when it's not oily, just so I get a chance to smell it...
I put some in my boyfriend's greaseball hair and it worked well, he was excited. Though it didn't FULLY get rid of all the grease. But his hair was very oily.
And as for the 'white cast' that I have read so much about, I have not experienced it at all. And I have black asian hair. Just don't overuse. And brush. voila
So I've been using this for about 2 weeks now. I HATE. IT. It makes my hair feel even dirtier. Feels like when you take a shower but you didn't fully rinse out your shampoo- that chunky, sticky residual feeling, when you run your hands through your hair it feels tough and clumped. IF you don't know what I am talking about, put some corn starch in your hair. It'll give you the same feeling that this lush product does, after all, corn starch is the first ingredient.
My hair LOOKS non-oily after i apply it, but when i brush my fingers through my hair you can see it clumping together in oiliness. and when i touch it, it feels so dirty and oily.
It's just awful. If you're contemplating buying this product, put some corn starch in your hair. It's the same feeling.
I really like this. Disclaimer: it's the only dry shampoo I've tried, and will probably be the only one (used to use baby powder.) I need just a tiny bit because my hair is short and only really gets greasy at my part. Using too much will make your hair grayish, as will not working it through properly. The bottle cap design is stupid, you can't really "puff" the product out until at least a quarter of it is gone; until then, just take the cap off and pour a tiny bit in your hands. Do NOT pour it directly on your head, as another user mentioned doing, because that is just way too much. I love the smell.
UPDATE May 8th, 2012. I don't evenuse it for my ahir anymore. Rather just wash it....with WATER and REAL SHAMPOO. I use it as body talc.
I have to wash my hair everyday but sometimes the timing is all wrong. ie. I wash my hair in the morning instead of the night and by the next morning, it is in need of a wash but there is no time. I don't find that this dry shampoo makes my hair light or shiny. However, it does take away the heavy greasy look so that I can put it into a nice ponytail.
I don't have an issue with the packaging. It's easy to shake a bit into my palms. It smells quite nice, not overpowering. I also use it as body powder. The price point is acceptable in comparison to the others that I say.
I'll use it until it's done but will not re-purchase.
This product is amazing. It smells wonderful, and it absorbs the oil on your hair. For the people that's saying that it leaves white on your dark hair, it means you're not working it through your hair well enough. It's around 13$, but it works. Whenever I don't wash my hair and use this product, people don't even notice, and yes, I have oily hair. The packaging is okay. It doesn't work well, but after using it several times you get used to how to use it.
The packaging is terrible. The cap just isn't ideal for puffing out powder. I feel like I have to work to get some product out. The product itself smells like grapefruit and isn't overwhelming. As for the product itself, I think it works very nicely. This is the first dry shampoo I've ever tried. I part my hair, sprinkle a little on my head, let it sit for a good 5 minutes, and then work it into my hair and brush it through the rest of my hair. It doesn't leave white streaks in my dark brown hair. I noticed that it adds some volume and gives me a cool tingling sensation on my head. I like it.
Here's a heads up for those wanting to try this: DO NOT INHALE. I accidentally inhaled some powder because it puffed everywhere in the air. My nostrils and throat became so dry and uncomfortable.
Dark Hair + White Powder = NO BUENO
I've never used a dry shampoo before and my hair gets very oily, very fast, so I was dying to try this out. As mentioned, this is actually one of LUSH's more reasonably priced products and for its size, it's a pretty good deal. It has a nice, clean smell too. Unfortunately for me, these were it for the "goods". I used this on a night where I purposely did not shampoo to test this out. My hair was oily at the roots and I thought it would be the best time to try this stuff out. The application to my roots was really messy. I poured the powder directly on to my head and powder just gets everywhere. I left it on for a few seconds before massaging it around my scalp. It says that once you're done, you're supposed to brush it out to spread the product around evenly. I did just that, but it left my roots, really gray! I tried massaging longer and got most of it out, but my hair was still a little gray. Anyways, I didn't really notice a difference at first so I waited it out and eventually slept on it. In the morning my hair wasn't as gray anymore and I noticed that the oiliness was gone. HOWEVER, my hair felt really weird afterwards. Like how your hair feels like when you get out of the shower and forgot to wash out the shampoo and your hair just feels really soapy. Yeah, that's how it felt throughout the whole day and after a lot of brushing.
The product did do its job of removing oiliness, but it still left my hair needing more than just this.
