I'd run out of my HG product, the Pronto Dry Shampoo powder, and I happened to see the spray version on sale at TJ Maxx. So I picked up a bottle.
While I love the powder version, this one is just okay. It did absorb oil, but it left a residue behind that I could feel when I ran my fingers through my hair. The scent is also very, very strong - it smells of lemon, just as the powder does, but also like chemicals because of the propellant.
I can see how a spray would be a lot more convenient for some people to use, and it's definitely a lot less messy, but unfortunately it's not for me! :(

I really like Oscar Blandi dry shampoos but this one is my favorite. The lemon smell is gorgeous. I have very fine, blonde straight hair, but a lot of it, and I like to use dry shampoo as a refresher between washes. I usually spray it in my hair by sections, flip my head upside down and rough it through with my fingers, and I'm ready to go. It performs exactly as I need it to: gives me volume and eats up some of the oil, keeping it at bay throughout the day. Note that I think this works better than Blandi's Invisible Dry Shampoo (in the brown bottle), and I prefer the spray over the bottle, because I always make a mess with loose hair powders. My only gripe is the price, so I tend to rotate between this, Psssssst and Batiste.

using this product was awful. the scent was terrible and lemony. smelled so strongly of cleaning products. it made my hair feel wet and greasier than it did before. it was disgusting. definitely threw this one away. not recommended to anyone that enjoys good hair.

Picked up a small can of this from Sephora for $6 to bring on a trip where I'd be sharing a hotel room with three other girls. Since I take a super long time in the shower, I thought I'd make every one's life easier by skipping a few showers and just splash and dash in the tub. I had never purchased a dry shampoo before and liked this small can. I really liked the smell. The smell lasted a full day after use. I didn't find it overpowering at all. I was kind of freaked out at first when I sprayed a lot this stuff on my roots because it was snow white. But I let it set in for a few moments then used a big comb to run it through my thick, shoulder length hair. Then I'd spray a light amount towards the back of my head, brush everything through, and done. No more oil and fresh smelling hair. I don't really "do" my hair often, but I can definitely see how this product gets bad reviews - it does absolutely nothing to volumize hair. I had to skip washing my hair two nights in a row (I usually skip a night anyways), both nights using this dry shampoo, and my hair was actually the flattest it had ever been. If I had tried to style my hair, it would have been horrible, so that was definitely a ponytail day. Overall, if you're like me and just want to skip a day of washing your hair, this could work, but don't count on any volume being added to your hair. If you're looking for something that will let you go two or more days without washing, forget about this product and find something else. I would not repurchase this stuff, and will be looking into DS brands for my next dry shampoo.

What the heck-- this is the worst product I've ever purchased (and trust me, I know-- I bought Urban Decay's makeup setting spray). This product made my hair greasier. It was absolutely terrible-- thank God I didn't need to go anywhere anytime soon. The smell is incredibly strong-- I can't even tell you if it's a good smell or not because all I could smell were chemicals. I had to leave the room. I'm not even going to give this product to a friend... just going to throw it away.

After offending the Sephora employee by voicing my skepticsm over dry shampoos when she told me about Oscar Blandi (and daring to compare the product to store bought brands which are horrible), I thought I'd try a small $10 can.
This stuff did absolutely nothing for me. I originally headed to Sephora to find the Jonathan Redo hair refresher spray (where I originally purchased it in CA), and I was told this was all they had, the Blandi product.
Don't waste your time with this...try the Jonathan Redo spray. It's not dry, but it actually does something to refreshen your hair, unlike this Blandi stuff (sorry Oscar).

This product doesn't work at all. Does nothing to volumize or even absorb the oil from my hair. The smell is medicinal and strong. I've tried the plain and the one for brown hair and both were ineffective at doing anything but costing me money. I'm going back to baby powder.

I'd consider giving this a higher score if what I needed was a refresher spray, something to freshen up the smell of my hair (say if I were a smoker or had been at a smelly club) because it smells amazing. What I need though is something to get rid of the greasies so I can go two days without washing my hair. Sadly this doesn't do anything at all to soak up oil so I'm going back to my cheap-o Batiste dry shampoo.

- smells gorgeous
- spray is completely invisible
- spray format is much more convenient and easier to apply than the powder
- fragrance is way too strong
- does not work - hair looks greasy again and falls completely flat 5 minutes later
Would definitely not purchase again. I'm going back to the powder version, which I've used for years despite the fact that it's very visible when first applied and very hard to blend. At least it's effective at getting rid of the greasy look my roots get on the second day of not washing.

Did not like this dry shampoo spray, sorry Oscar! It sprayed on clear but didn't absorb any oil from my hair and didn't volumize either. And to be fair I tried this a few times. I've used the Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo powder and it really absorbs oil, but some of the powder shows and I'd been wanting to try the clear spray. The one I have is the 1.4 oz spray in the brown spray can, same name as the picture above. Not sure if they tried a new formula or new packaging, but it doesn't work at all :( Still on the lookout for a clear, dry shampoo that works.

I was excited to come across a dry shampoo that actually sprays clear, but this product was very disappointing. It made my hair feel very sticky and stiff, almost like I'd applied hairspray. I couldn't even run my fingers through my hair without snagging.

I'm not sure if i can give a rating of zero for this. But i'll be nice and give it a 1.
Honestly, this product made my hair look HORRIBLE. I spent a truckload of money on the large-sized Invisible spray version here in Singapore thanks to Sephora's jacking up the prices in its overseas franchises. I cannot remember the price but suffice to say, i spent way way much more than the US retail price (US$23) stupidly. It didn't absorb oil, didnt give me even a tiny tiny fraction of volume, and it certainly didnt make my hair feel any cleaner at all.
In fact, it did the opposite. My hair was greasier, flatter and felt even more dirty than before spraying this, and i swear i wanted to do nothing more than wash this utter rubbish out of my hair! Multiply the anger by the price i paid, and you'll get the picture. Hell my Johnsons Baby Powder works better.
It is now, sadly, rotting on my table. I've been trying to use this up by spraying it around the room since the smell (lemons) is not bad. I know... its ended up becoming a glorified room spray.

Horrible product. If I could rate it a -0-, I would. I didn't wash my hair for two (maybe 3 days) just so I could see how well this worked. It didn't. It smells funny (almost like mint, but mixed with something weird). My hair is fairly thick, straight, black, and mid-back length. After the 2-3 days of not washing my hair, my scalp was oily, but this made it feel even more oily AND dirty. I had to keep this in my hair until I got home (2-3 hours later), and I hated every minute of it. My hair *looked* dirty, *smelled* dirty, and *felt* dirty. Gross! Good thing I only bought the try-me size at Ulta. Don't remember how much it costs, but even if it was only 50 cents, it still wouldn't be worth it. Very disappointed. I expected more from Oscar Blandi.

This did not get rid of any of the oiliness in my hair nor did it help with volume. If anything, it made my dirty hair feel even dirtier. My hair smelled like fruit loops too, which wasn't exactly what I was going for. I think the cheaper drugstore ones like Suave actually work much better, I'd even use baby powder before this again.

Great product! Brings my thin long hair back to life in between washes. Works great for after the gym too! Best part I got it on celerance at Marshall's.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
Not impressed at all with this product. The lemony smell is nice but it lingers in your hair so long you smell like you washed in Pine-sol! Not to mention that it barely removed oil and didn't give me any extra volume so it didn't work well on refreshing second day hair. Definetely will not repurchase.

Sad to say this is horrible. Nozzle clogged on first use; product evaporated mid-second use. Better luck with the powder.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
Disastrous!! Somehow, this little spray made my hair look worse! It seemed to actually add oil, rather than remove it. My hair ended up looking very dirty. As well, it didn't do anything for my hair's volume and perhaps even weighed it down more, particularly at the roots. The nozzle also has a notoriously bad habit of clogging, if not properly managed. For better or worse, the bottle barely lasted a few applications. I couldn't believe when I went to shake it and it was all gone. Then again, that was tempered with relief since I could now justify buying a new (and better!) dry shampoo. The regular OB dry shampoo (applied with the tube) is much, much better. Save your money!

This is for the clear version that claims to be equally cleansing and volumizing. Well, it does an good job giving my fine hair volume, but it definitely DOES NOT absorb any oil or product build up on my greasy scalp. Which is kinda the main purpose for this spray. My hair still looked and felt dirty. Try Klorane if you want a nice dry shampoo, and try Oribe if you want an awesome texturizer. This one fails and I will never buy again.

I, too, got sucked into all the hype. The girl at Sephora said this was the best. I wanted it for my bangs that seem to get a little greasy before the rest of my hair. Also, with dark hair I didn't want white residue. What I got was even greasier hair and big chunks of white that I couldn't get out of my hair. I'm taking it back to the store.
