woah, this has terrible reviews! I honestly don't understand why, I love this stuff! I am definitely not stranger to dry shampoos, I used the oscar blandi white powder version of this for YEARS, it lasted me about 3 years using it several times a month, but they started coming out with 'brown' and 'clear versions, so I switched to 'sugar dry shampoo for brown hair' and I loved that too.
I bought this to throw in my gym purse after I got powder everywhere from using the powder versions, Though I was skeptical of the spray nozzle (every version with spray nozzles I've tried before just have been clogged within days). I've used this a handful of times and so far, so good. It definitely is clear, and you do have to use quite a bit, but it really does absorb the oils.
I will say that the first time I used it, it did not work. I just kept spraying it and eventually it did start to work. It seems you have to get the gas at the top of the can out before the actual product comes out, which is tricky because....the product is clear. I have a feeling this stuff expires quickly, and perhaps that is why so many people say it doesn't work. When I got mine I literally got it the day it came in, the lady pulled it out of a box for me at sephora. So maybe that is why I like it and others don't?
I HIGHLY recommend the sugar dry shampoo in the powder version for anyone who can handle the powder. Its the best I've tried so far (I've tried all by oscar blandi, the tresemme one, and the got2be one, and the sugar version is by far the best. The powder is a brown colour for the brunette version I probably will go back to using that after I finish this one up).

gah! why didn't i read any reviews before trying this product!
I bought this because the sales lady sold me on the oscar bland dry shampoo, the one in the white bottle and the product comes out like a powder, and she claimed that it would be a good combo to have. I bought the little travel version to try.
Time and time again, I followed the directions - to spray, wait to dry, and tousle hair and didn't follow directions, just spray and tousle hair, it never worked. Very disappointed.

I am actually very surprised about the reviews on here about this product. I wonder if people were getting old bottles?
I was about to go on a nine day camping trip in the middle of nowhere where water was also about to be scarce. I was warned not to expect to be able to shower or to wash my hair. So I walked into Sephora to see if I could find some dry shampoo. The sales associate recommended this one as he used it on his hair daily and that it was also "invisible" as I have black hair. Dubiously (because I have always thought dry shampoo to be somewhat of a crock), I bought it and figured that the worst case scenario was that I would have awful hair by the fourth day because I usually wash my hair every other day. Well. Yes, it smells like lemon Pledge. It kinda feels like hairspray. But it worked. My hair looked pretty good through day 6, leaving just three days that it looked like crap. Sure, it wasn't like the real thing: it was limpier and flat, but I didn't feel like it was greasy or oily.
Fast forward to about a year later. I had to use this dry shampoo as an emergency. I used the same bottle and got really different results. I hadn't washed my hair in two days and was late for work. It pretty much was awful. It was sticky and tacky like old hairspray. My hair even clumped a little before I brushed it out. By the end of the day, my hair really did look like I hadn't washed it in three days and was greasy and oily. I'm kinda confused because it wasn't like this the first time around and the only thing I can come up with is the age of the bottle!
I'd use this again, but I would buy a new bottle first (hopefully one which hasn't been sitting on the shelf for too long!).

Awful awful awful! I picked up a little can of this at Ulta wanting something small that carries in my purse easily. They said it sells well and works great. LIES! It didn't do anything but make my hair look wet and greasy, oh and it smelled like lemon pledge! I took it right back!

OMG, so bad, sooooooo bad. Not only did this not help, it made hair worse. My hair was greasier and looked dirtier than before I started.
Smells like Lemon Pledge, and I think manufacturer made a mistake and put Pledge in bottle by accident. It doesn't brush out at all-you'd have to wash your hair and brush just to get this out.
I'm shocked by how bad this is!!! So, so bad!!! How can they sell something this bad!?

I very rarely hate a product so much that I throw it away in disgust. It usually lingers in my bathroom for a couple years and I'll have come back to it and tried it a couple more times before I guiltily toss it. Not so with this product. This was absolutely terrible. I tend to need dry shampoo between washes because I have very black, straight hair that gets very obviously greasy at the roots. Prior to getting this (thankfully it was in a kit), I was using Batiste. This product is SO much worse despite being nearly 3x the price of Batiste. It has no grease-soaking power whatsoever and dries down to an even more greasy, heavy feel. Definitely not volumizing. In fact, my hair felt dirtier, heavier and greasier AFTER using this product, no matter what I did. I tried spraying less, more, more frequently, but nothing worked. I chucked it and haven't looked back.
I highly DO NOT recommend this product. It has no use whatsoever in terms of voluminizing and removing oiliness. Batiste performs much better for a fraction of the cost.

This does absolutely nothing to absorb excess oils and dry clean my hair in between shampoos. The only good thing is that it's invisible, but then after I spray onto my roots, my hair looks very greasy. The product doesn't ever seem to dry or brush out. I've gotten much better results with blowpro faux dry shampoo. It's fabulous and does not make my hair look ashy or greasy. Sorry, Oscar Blandi.

This product sucks. Does absolutely nothing at all. Am sticking to my Principessa Bianco Breeze or Klorane Dry shampoo.

I really wanted to love this! The only positive comment I have is that it was invisible in my dark brown hair.
On the other hand, this made my hair more greasy than when I began. After I used it, I had to shake on some baby powder to clean up all the residue it left behind. This didn't seem to absorb any existing oil. Instead, it seemed to add to it. Unfortunately, this didn't work for me, and I'll definitely be returning it.

It doesn't do what it says and made my hair look dirtier with no volume. Thumbs down: I returned it the next day and I never return anything.

I have tried two of the Blandi Dry Shampoo products. This, and the Pronto dry shampoo that comes in the little bottle to shake on. The non-spray version is hands down the winner in the greasy hair showdown. To be fair, I tried this spray first and used the entire can in my determination to get my money's worth. I have dark hair and was overly cautious about getting something that would be truly invisible. Well, it does live up to that name, but is smells like a chemical nightmare and doesn't volumize or 'shampoo' anything in the least. My bangs in particular tend to soak up a lot of oil from my face, but spraying this onto them would only make them clump oddly and not really fix anything. Also, the alcohol/propellant in this spray is incredibly drying; lucky for me my hair isn't colored or damaged but I would stay away from this product if that is the case for you. The shake-on Pronto shampoo is cheaper, MUCH more effective, has none of insane flammable chemicals and still disappears into dark hair with a little massaging and brushing.

This product does nothing it claims on the label -- with one exception: it is invisible. It's invisible in every sense, actually. Yes, unlike other dry shampoos, you can't see it when you spray it in my light brown hair. That's a plus. But it also doesn't have any measurable effect on my hair when I spray it in. It looks as oily after I spray it in as it did before. I was trying to use it to skip a day in between baking soda shampoos, in the third week of my no-poo regime. I have fine hair that gets oily if I don't shampoo or baking soda every day, but I'm trying to give my hair time to get back to its natural balance by taking a day off every other day. This wasn't the product for that. The days I've used it, I've had to add cornstarch to my hair afterwards and deal with trying to get the whiteness out. The Oscar Blandi shampoo does absolutely nothing. Thank heavens I bought the small bottle (not a bargain in itself, at $12.50 at Sephora) to test before shelling out nearly $30.
