BEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO MY HAIR!
I cannot survive without this. I don't like to wash my hair more than 3 times a week and this makes my hair look clean and voluminous on my in-between wash days. It's to the point where I actually prefer the look of my hair a day or two after washing because this product gives me so much beautiful volume.
I can't believe I went so long with a greasy scalp (it was never THAT bad but now I don't ever have an even mildly greasy day)!! I don't know if it works for all hair types; my hair is fine to medium-thickness, dry at the ends and slightly oily at the roots.
I find the product works best if I apply it liberally to the roots (be sure to get it in between strands, don't just coat the outer layer of your hair or it won't work). I then use my fingers to spread it around my scalp and brush out with a boar bristle brush and the effect is amazing.

I LOVE this dry shampoo. It refreshes my second or third day hair without making it all powder-y and greasy feeling - which is KEY as I don't like washing my hair more than twice a week. It's not as volumizing as the Tresemme dry shampoo, but I'd personally rather have a clean-feeling scalp. ALSO, I've never had this product clog up - both Dove and Tresemme bottles clogged halfway through using them - what a waste of money (I now only buy the travel-size Tresemme one due to this reason). Some reviewers say this product sprays white for them, but mine sprays pretty dang clear and invisible (I have black hair). Since there is barely any residue, I use it to PREVENT oily hair as well - I spray this into my roots after I've freshly washed and styled my hair, wait a minute, and then massage it gently into my scalp. That way, my hair looks just as clean the next day.

So far so good. The scent is tolerable, not horrible but not amazing either. However it DOES work. And I have never had a problem with the nozzle clogging or making my hair greasy, unlike other dry shampoos I have tried. Easy to find, and honestly I love the fact that it reminds me of my childhood. Will buy again. Does the job!

This product isn't as good as I remember. It use to be more powdery and really absorbed oil. Maybe I got a bad bottle because this came out wetter and really didn't make an impact on my greasy strands. I'm just glad it was cheap.

i can't believe how long i went without trying this after so many dry shampoos i've tried. this product is amazing!! it's provides amazing volume but doesn't make the hair overly powdery or chalky. not too much grit. still keeps hair soft, but just enough texture. the scent is lovely and light and doesn't linger. not the sleekest packaging, but the amazing performance this product gives totally outweighs the silly name and can. please try this before you spend a fortune trying a ton of high end dry shampoos which pale in comparison to this classic.

For the price, this stuff is wonderful! There seems to be a huge divide in pricing for dry shampoo products, the expensive ones are really pricy, and the drugstore brands are dirt cheap. Pssssst is dirt cheap and good enough that I don't bother spending more on a higher end brand. I can usually find it for around 5 bucks, give or take a dollar, and sometimes it goes on sale for BOGO.
My hair is more on the dry side, and I use dry shampoo between washings when my roots start looking greasy, or just to freshen up my hair if I have to go out but don't have time to shower. The scent is fresh, not overly sweet or perfume-y, and sometimes I will use it when my hair has taken on some unpleasant odors (like from cooking). It works well to bulk up your roots for teasing, and leaves nice texture for a messy bedhead look.
I noticed many reviewers mentioned that it leaves a white powdery residue. I have black hair, and in my experience the first couple of sprays from a brand new can have that powdery look, but the rest of the can is practically invisible on my hair. I had much better luck with Pssssst than with Batiste brand, the Batiste was very noticeable in my hair and I only got a couple of uses out of the can, for about the same price. Psssssst either has significantly more product in the can, or it's way more effective, because it lasts me several uses.
I always have some on hand, it's essential for summer!

I have no idea if I'd buy this again, really. It doesn't do jack shit for my thick fine hair, except make it smell yummy. But maybe that's all dry shampoos do? I feel like if you're at the point in the week when you need to wash your hair, just wash your hair. Unless it's impossible. Nothing like washing your hair when it's all gross.

I've been using this, Klorane, and a homemade version (corn starch and baking soda) for years. This is my favorite, followed closely by Klorane. I've been making my own homemade products for cleaning, skincare, body care, and haircare for about a year now and I've tried to experiment with styling products. While there are solutions, I've found that there is no replacing an aerosol dry shampoo. The homemade mix showed on my hair, didn't work as well, and weighed it down. While I love the Klorane dry shampoo, with the amount that I use, it's just way to expensive for me (even when I worked at Sephora and got a discount). So this is the one that I go back to. It's enough to get my hair to a point that I'm comfortable with, but it's not so heavy that I can't get it out with my baking soda and apple cider vinegar that I use in place of shampoo and conditioner. I go through a lot since I only wash my hair 1-2 times a week, so I stock up on it at Walgreens whenever it's on sale. It leaves my hair feeling, looking and smelling great. I love the new can. It's much easier to hold and use and it seems like there is less fragrance in it which is great too. Since it's getting harder and harder to find Klorane (I don't even think it's available in the US anymore) and I've completely given up on homemade dry shampoo, this is something that I'm going to stick to. Since it's such a cult favorite, I can't see it going anywhere. The only complaint that I have is that the price has gone up since it was featured as an editor's choice in Allure. Depending on if the price goes up again, I'm not sure if it'll be worth getting even if it's on sale. If that does happen, I might be looking for a replacement, but for now, this is my go to.

I switched to this after using "beyond the zone" brand. This stuff doesn't smell and one bottle lasts way longer than btz did. I don't need to spray as much and it does what it says, cleans and volumizes. I found this at ulta for 6.99 but they often have coupons attached to them to get them even cheaper. Awesome dry shampoo! I use it about 3 times a week and wash my hair 3 days a week. Gets rid of oil and refreshes hair.

Best root lifter ever! I had been using this as I prefer the scent over Batista and the others I have tried, plus a reasonable cost. So many other brands smelled funny, were too wet when applied, did nothing, etc. I know many complain about the white cast and my hair is practically black. That is why I spray it on the under surface and fluff (which gets rid of any white). But because of this concern, when I cam across a Batista (sp?) that was for Brunettes,I pounced on it. But minutes later, I am back to Pssst. The Batista, meant for brunettes, left more white cast in my hair than the Psssst ever did! Also, none of the Batista's leave my hair with that fresh clean smell/feel. So yes, it looks like men's shaving cream in the can, but it is cheap and I love it. Especially love the baby powder (but more fresh) scent. It so cheap you can't go wrong trying it.

Dislike this product. I've tried lots of dry shampoos and to me this is one of the worst. It definitely leaves a gray powdery look to my hair, and the powder sticks to my scalp and feels very stiff. I also feel like I need to use an abnormal amount to get my hair (I usually only use dry shampoo on my bangs and part...) looking clean. With others I've used I only need a little bit. Price wise I was happy that it was cheap and easy to find so I don't feel burdened with it!
PROS: cheap, easy to find, smells OK
CONS: hard to brush out, doesn't "clean" well, aerosol can

They brought this back from the 70's! I still remember the ads and their catchy little tune, "P S S S S SS T!" I remember it was handy then for all the long hair styles especially, but the problem with the nozzle becoming clogged is turning out to be historically based.
Still, glad to see it back if only for the fact that the price is so much less than the other varieties (and it does work better than Tresemme's foam-version "dry" shampoo).

Purchased the travel can 1.76 oz for $3; it is readily available at any Duane Reade or Ricky's here in NY. Love it. I picked it up for my blunt cut black bangs which I always touch and are always limp and piecey by mid-day. The trick to Pssssst is to spray and wait at least 3 full minutes before combing through, to ensure the oils are absorbed by the powder. When I get impatient and start combing right through, it does nothing. So now I wait and the results are clear. The white powdery coat disappears and what's left behind are refreshed, dry, matte bangs. Don't be discouraged, dark haired beauties, by the initial fine white mist on your hair. When I brush through, it totally disappears! A great find and value.

Freeman Pssssst!: This is great! I have used the $30something Bumble & bumble and this one is WAAAAAY! better. It even detangles my super fine crappy severely tangled hair. Excellent.

Love love love this product! I can't believe I didn't try this out until now. However, I noticed along with some others that my bottle says Freeman, not Clairol, and Pssssst! is spelled with 5 's instead of 6? I hope this is the same product everyone else is reviewing! I am one to wash my hair every day in the AM, and if I don't my hair gets super oily and unbearable the next day. My pet peeve is people with oily hair. This is a great after color product- my stylist always tells me to wait a few days after I get my color done to wash my hair. For me that is super hard to do, but I think it will be manageable now with Pssssst. Sprays in my hair quickly, evenly and doesn't leave that much of a white residue. I love that it helps pump up the volume and keeps my scalp dry and refreshed. I love the smell too- it does smell like artificial coconut.
smells disgusting. confirmed by others around me. how embarrassing.

This is my favorite dry shampoo so far. Smell is not too strong, it's pretty cheap, and gets the job done. I have to brush it out pretty well because it can leave a white residue on your hair. My only complaint is that some of the bottles I've purchased have either ran out of product very quickly or have had issues with the spray nozzle. No amount of shaking or cleaning the nozzle seemed to help. The only solution was to buy a new bottle! I've used this product for over a year now to help extend time between colorings.

This left a bit of a grey residue on my dark brown hair, which I found I had to work on brushing through quite a bit to get it to look more natural. It worked really well at volumizing my roots, although it dulled my shine down. I was able to extend having to wash until the next day. The biggest drawback I had with this is that I was only able to use the bottle for one use, and then it lost it's spray pressure. I kept shaking the bottle, and it sounded like there was plenty of product in it, but nothing came out, even after cleaning the nozzle. I thought maybe it was a defective bottle, so when I saw another bottle with a new design to the bottle shape, I purchased and tried again. Worked great for a couple short bursts for the first use, but then again, I was not able to use it after that because it would not spray.
I prefer Batiste.

A lot better than the Tresemme version. Smells better, lighter texture, looks nicer when blow-dried afterwards. I use this to texturize my coarse, thick, slick Asian hair and it makes a world of difference!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Other, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Blue
I love this dry shampoo. It is so much better than the Tresemme one. I don't find the fragrance very strong, and cannot smell it once applied. It does a good job of absorbing oil, and the white powder disappears once brushed through. The product comes out in a fine mist rather than a forceful spurt--which i love. Will be repurchasing it.

This is my first foray into dry shampoo and since it was so cheap, I felt I had nothing to lose. Yes, it comes out with a whitish cast, but in my blonde hair it disappears. You spray it at the roots, let it soak up the grease, and then brush out. My hair doesn't feel freshly washed like the can promises, but my scalp feels markedly less oily within minutes. The scent is fresh and vaguely tropical. I keep the bottle in my gym bag for after a sweaty workout when I don't want to shampoo and restyle my hair. FYI, I don't know if Clairol bought Freeman or vice versa, but the brand on my can says Freeman, not Clairol.
Paid $6.79 for a 5.3 ounce aerosol can at my supermarket.
