A good dry shampoo is apparently supposed to totally revive your hair, or at least bring back some volume, bounce, texture and of course, remove any traces of an oily scalp.

This one is okay. It's not the worst thing ever, but I wouldn't buy it again. It's just about the same as Tresemme's dry shampoo. It smells really good, but the biggest thing I look for is oil absorption, and this one only lasts for maybe an hour before looking oily again. I like the roughed up texture this dry shampoo gives my hair, but it's so difficult to rub the white powder into my almost black hair. I suppose it's time to start looking for a tinted one.

However, if maybe your hair isn't as oily as mine on a regular basis and you're on a tight budget, this is a good choice. It was about $5 and I'm glad I didn't buy something more expensive.

I like this dry shampoo better then most. I have thin hair that gets oily easy so dry shampoo is a MUST for second day hair. My hair is dyed darker at the moment and I will say that if you spray too close it does leave the tell tale white/gray cast BUT it brushes out way easier then any other white/gray cast that the others leave. Not sure if this is the best but I would definitely buy again!

This did nothing for my greasy hair. The fumes coming out of it was awful! There was so much. It was like a can of fumes.

This is one of my favorite dry shampoos and I have tried many. I try to go 3 days without washing my hair and I have fine hair, so it does get oily fairly quickly. I put the Clean Freak Dry Shampoo at night so that it has plenty of time to soak up all that nasty oil. It keeps my hair looking fresh without making it dry or adding a weird layer, like some other dry shampoos. Also, it may seem crazy but the smell is so, so, so gooooood!

The key to this dry shampoo is to spray it on before you go to bed the night before! It gives it plenty of time to soak up the oils and get rid of any of the powdery feel. This is a good value, it's a huge can for around $5. It's not the best or the worst but I've repurchased it a couple times when I couldn't get my favorite dry shampoo which is the amika one.

I like this dry shampoo. I've tried a lot of dry shampoos and I decided to try this after running out of my Batiste one (which is kinda expensive for me). I have black hair so of course it leaves some white residue, but I spray it on and brush it through my hair before sleeping and when I wake up, all the white residue is gone and my hair is not oily at all :)

This is the worst dry shampoo I have ever tried. I bought it, because I was out of Batiste, and couldn't make it to Ulta to buy more. This was the biggest can for less than $5 at Walmart.

First off, this product is incredibly smelly and toxic. It says right on the can that inhaling the fumes can be harmful or fatal (!!). But I assumed that it just referred to huffing it. Wrong. I sprayed a tiny bit of it in my bathroom, which does not have a window. I quickly realized that was a mistake, and moved into a more open space to spray it. The fumes were unreal. I opened the windows and door, and turned on the fan to get fresh air circulating, but I still had a sore throat for about 2 hours. I have never, ever had this happen with anything other than spray paint. That should tell you something about how harmful and toxic this product can be!!

Secondly, if you just spray a tiny bit, it does nothing. But if you spray a little more, your hair will be dry and gray. So it looks and feels disgusting on your head, and it's incredibly irritating to breathe it in. I have nothing good to say about this product, other than I like the design of the package. I will never, ever repurchase this. If you're new to dry shampoo, there's such better products out there: Batiste, Psssst and Suave, to name a few.

All this did was make my hair smell terrible and become a static-y mess. Didn't impart any volume, left a white cast, didn't make my hair look clean. I do like other products from this line, but not this one!

I don't like this at all. This was the first dry shampoo I bought so I thought maybe I was using it wrong but looking at these other reviews + buying a different brand I guess it's not me, it's the product.

No matter how much I brushed, there would still be stubborn spots of white in my dark brown/black hair. Even worse was when I sprayed, it almost made my hair feel MORE greasy and heavy than before! The more I brushed the worse the greasy feeling was! I thought, maybe dry shampoo just isn't for me but recently I went out and bought the Garnier Fructis dry shampoo and it worked 10x better than this. White spots were brushed out easily, grease/oil was absorbed, there was a pleasant smell, and my hair was definitely feeling refreshed afterwards. Totally the opposite of the NYM's dry shampoo. I wouldn't recommend this at all.
