I kind of love this dry shampoo. I used to live by Oscar Blandi, but let's face it, that stuff is expensive, so I started trying other cheaper dry shampoo's and some of them were ok, some good, and then I tried Suave's.
First let me say, the very first time I bought a bottle of this I could not handle the smell, hence only 4 stars. It was the worst. I was like 'I'm never buying this again". And that bottle just sat around while I used other brands, however I ended up using it out of necessity as I had run out of other products, and somehow it turned into my favorite. The smell doesn't bother me anymore, yes it's strong, but I just put it on in a large room and soon after I don't even notice it anymore. I'd say this is the best bang for your buck as far as dry shampoo's. It does it's job. I have greasy hair like nobody's business, and this takes care of that, not only does it cut the grease, but it gives my lifeless, flat, fine hair, volume.
It's my go to now.

I have only one positive thing to say about this dry shampoo: the product does not leak from the can. That being said, the product itself is absolutely terrible, and sometimes I wish it WOULD leak just so I could be finished with the darn thing and get rid of it already! It does absolutely nothing for my hair except to make it look and feel more dirty, greasy, and matted. And good gracious, the smell...like rotting fruit. Why would I want my hair to smell like a basket of rotting fruit?
I guess I do have one more positive thing to say about this, which is that it only set me back $3. But still...I kind of want my money back.

I am an O.G. dry shampoo-er.
When I first started using dry shampoo, only several brands carried it (like Klorane) and it was pretty pricey.
Suddenly dry shampoo because popular and I was thrilled to find Suave come out with a cheaper version. I really really really wanted to love this, but I just don't.
The fragrance is way too strong, and it does not seem to do anything for my hair. I have very thick hair... I can literally go a week without washing before anyone would be able to really tell, so I dry shampoo doesn't need to do a whole lot in my hair. Even so, Suave just does nothing.

I have fine, dark brown hair that becomes limp the day after washing it. My scalp also becomes greasy very quickly while the ends of my hair are dry, so I hate washing it more than 3X a week but never know what to do about the greasiness.
This stuff is decent for the price; it cuts the grease and volumizes the roots. It does leave a white residue when you first spray it on, but I let it sit for a minute, then rub my hands together to warm them up and run them through my hair until the white stuff is gone. It also lasts pretty much all day for me.
The only thing I don't like about this is the smell. Actually, the smell is alright (fruity/citrusy) but it's soooooo strong! I can smell it throughout the day; luckily, I don't wear perfume very often but if I did I would probably be pissed about the smells clashing.

Works like a charm, but the lemon Pledge smell is too overpowering and lingers forever. If this was fragrance free, I'd give it 5 lippies.

Like many dry shampoos this goes on ashy. The ashy aspect seems to go away after a while, and my hair feels like it has more volume for under an hour. At that point it begins to look and feel lank and greasy. I like to use dry shampoo to extend the times between hair washings and this doesn't do that at all. The smell is strong and it lingers. I am going to try either the Aveeno dry shampoo or Baptiste. Klorane works, but it is expensive, and something about paying a lot for propellant and powder feels weird.

I've used Oscar Blandi (Spray and non aerosol versions) Klorane, Tresemme, and out of all of them, I really prefer Suave. Tresemme goes in kind of heavy, and Oscar Blandi seems to make my hairline breakout. Klorane is just hugely expensive, although the powder was a bit finer and I preferred the scent.
Invest in a boar bristle brush before you start using this product. I spray my roots and areas I want to add some body to, and then I WALK AWAY for at least five minutes. After it dries, I rub my hands together to warm them up and then RUB the product into my hair with my head upside down. (Your hair will be huge by the time you're done) This will also dissipate the powdery residue. I follow up with a brush to remove any more powder and I am ready to go. Without a boar bristle brush, you may not get all the powder off, which will become evident as the day progresses, if you are wearing a dark top. I've noticed this with all the products, but especially this.
I have fine hair, but a lot of it, and it's dark cherry brown.
For a few bucks, it's definitely worth it.

This is a terrible product. I followed the instructions and watched many youtube videos demonstrating it's use and praising the product. It made my hair an oily, flat, tangled mess. It was a disaster. Maybe it works better for people with very thick hair, but for my hair that's on the medium-thinner side, it was terrible. Thank goodness it was only $3 because it was a total waste.

This is my favorite dry shampoo, period. I have tried many department store and drugstore brands and this is what works best for my hair. This helps me get more mileage out of my hair between shampooing and doesn't make my hair feel filmy or gross. I usually just roughly section my hair and spray it on the roots and once I'm done doing it all over, I flip over and massage it in. It leaves a slight white powder at first (I have medium brunette hair) but I find that it really does go away if you massage it in well. I know people are all over the place regarding the smell; personally, it's a little strong (very citrus-y) but not too horrible. If you're looking for a new dry shampoo to try, I'd definitely recommend this. And it's only two bucks, so even if you don't like it, it's not a huge waste. I certainly like this a lot more than Tresemme's which I thought was wayyy too filmy and cakey, making it hard to fully massage in. Also, I never have issues with this nozzle clogging like I did with other brands.
TIP: If you're having trouble rubbing ANY brand of dry shampoo in (as in, the white residue left over), style as usual and then take a barely damp cloth and LIGHTLY go over your hair with it. I found that takes the "ash" color off, at least for me, as long as the cloth isn't too damp and you're not pressing too hard into your hair. Like I said, I don't have this problem with this particular brand of dry shampoo but it helped when I bought other dry shampoos I didn't like as much. Thought I'd pass it on if anyone was interested! :)

This is my new favorite dry shampoo. It smells amazing, and works perfectly without being too dry or leaving any sticky residue. My hair is blonde, so it doesn't bother me that it's white powder based. Unfortunately, it runs out SO fast... 4-5 applications and the entire bottle is empty. Either way, I haven't found anything that smells as good or leaves my hair feeling as fresh, so I will buy it again.
