Great dry shampoo. I'd go so far as to say its an HG product of mine. I spend a ton on coloring my hair & this product helps me extend the life of my color jobs by helping me shampoo less. I love the smell of the original & the texture once the product has been correctly applied. Yes, it makes your hair look whitish, but you must follow the directions & brush it out after letting it sit a bit. I dye my hair really dark brown/red & I do not find that I have problems with the white cast. I would like to try the brunette colored one, but it is not available where I live. Would I repurchase? Totally, and I have many times over. continued >>
This does a good job at "refreshing" your hair, getting rid of the oil build-up. When you spray it on, it turns into white powder on your hair, so you have to brush it off. It should work on all hair color bec the powdery residue easily comes off anyway. I have dark hair and I have no problem with it. It smells fresh and powdery. Great to have around to liven up limp hair.
This dry shampoo works quite well on my dyed-blonde hair. I can usually run my fingers through my hair to eliminate any residue rather than combing it. My big drawback is that I need a lot to properly absorb the grease on my roots and it runs out quite quickly. I bought at Shoppers Drug Mart for 9.99 (original), but found a bottle at Winners yesterday (Blush scent) for only 6.99.
I love love this product! (I got it in the blush) It is soo good for those days where my roots are oily but the rest of my hair looks great! So I just put this on my scalp area. The only draw back is that this does leave some whiteness in my hair, So I am going to stop using this and go onto the Brunette one that has just come out! Thank god! Can't wait to try it!
Stop reading the reviews and just go buy one!
Most dry shampoos... leave a white residue making hair look grey, dull, and dirty. They don't give volume, leave hair feeling or looking clean. Most leave my hair greasy.
I accidentally sprayed this too close to my scalp. I was sad because there was that white residue most dry shampoos have. I took a comb and combed this out. That white residue is gone. There is no grey/ dullness to my hair, my hair is now clean feeling, clean looking, and has a bit of volume to it. This product is what a dry shampoo should be.
2/29/12 update: I stopped using this a while ago. I lowered my rating because this would leave white residue in my hair no matter what color it was. I have since switched.
PROS: Works so well. I spray at roots only and then tap with my hands to sort of work in. Absorbs excess oil well. As long as I tap my hair where I've sprayed it, it doesn't leave white powdery film like others do in my medium brown root area.
CONS: Smell could be better (original), but it's tolerable. This does run out quick, so I buy at least two cans when I got to Sally's Beauty Supply. Does leave just the lightest film of powder, but when I tap it in, it goes away easily and quickly.
APPLICATION TIPS: I only spray at the roots cause that's where I need it. ;-)
ALTERNATES: Have now found Suave's dry shampoo to be superior to this in having a lot less white residue and the smell is better.
I love dry shampoo almost as much as I love mascara. I have tried many, many types. None can compare to Rene Ferterer. That said at $28 canadian a bottle, I long for a cheaper alternative. I tried Tres Semme's version and was deeply disappointed. I really didn't think I could find a cheap version of dry shampoo that I liked enough. Today, I was hopping at Winners (Canadian version of TJMaxx). I stumbled across a bottle of Batiste dry shampoo in blush for $6.99 a bottle. That is about the same price as tres Semme, so I was willing to give it a go. Worked great almost as good as my treasured Ferterer. I am going back tomorrow to clear them out of their stock. I am a happy girl!
This is my favorite dry shampoo so far, and the second cheapest I've found. I've tried both the original and and Blush scent and they're both pleasant. I don't know if they leave a residue on dark hair because I've only tried it as a blonde or redhead, but it's perfect for anyone who wants to keep their color longer, doesn't want to wash their hair every day, or gets greasy or limp hair mid-day. Also, the packaging is very cute and I hope it never changes.
I came across this product purely by accident, I figured it would come in handy when I went camping, turns out I cant live without it now!
It leaves your hair clean looking, and smelling fresh although im really not too keen on the smell of the original but its not overpowering and fades pretty quickly, it leaves a lot of white residue in your hair, so you have to spend a good amount of time rubbing it out so it wouldn't be good for people with dark hair, the fact im blond means I can disguise it a bit better. All in all I love this! it means I don't have to wash and style my hair all the time and is a god send when im running late. =]
This really didn't work for me! the powder just seemed to stick to my scalp making my hair feel dirty and my hair was still left looking greasy. I would rather spend the extra money on the Klorane Dry Shampoo because that actually works.
