I have tried many dry shampoos, the latest are from the drugstore (haven't found one I like yet). I too dislike the price but it's the one I always go back too. It simply works. Dries up the oil without a lot of talc (it uses clay), my hair smells good, has volume and looks great. I'm on my third can. A 3.2 oz. can will last me a year as I only use it in emergencies - hair looks like it can go one more day then I wake up and it's looking bad. My hair is fine so perhaps a little goes further than someone with thick hair.

I have a love/hate relationship with htis stuff. I love what it does for my hair, that it isnīt sticky, doesnīt leave white stuff on my shoulders and it gives my hair body and lets me not shampoo everyday. I hate the price, and that fact that I only do my roots and get about 10 uses from a can. I also find that sometimes the product doesnīt come out with the aerosol, so I get the feeling the īairīis finished before I have all the product out of the can. I have repurchased this about 4 times, but realize itīs just too hard on my wallet ( 15,00 Euros a can) I have seen this in Paris in double packs for around 10,00 Euros.

I don't know if I misused the product, but after a few uses, i'd say less than 10, the jar was done. I really didn't like it. I may have sprayed too much, but that's how much was required to get my hair to look less oily.

This product can keep me oil free for days. And I have fringe that needs a mid afternoon tending to! I like that it doesn't leave a residue and yet somehow restores softness (lots of other dry shampoos I've tried left me feeling like the moisture was zapped).
Like other reviewers said, it's a lot of money for a little bit of product. I personally get about a months worth out of it, which for me is still a lot considering I can shower shampoo my hair for less than that each month!
I would give this a 5 star rating except for the price. Oh, and the flowery smell. Not a fan.

Rene Furterer's Naturia has been my one and only dry shampoo for a year now but if it actually does everything it promises (leaves your hair fresh and fluffy the whole day and even day after), it runs out really fast! I'd say 8-10 uses to the most. When you know it costs 25$ a bottle, it makes you want to wash your hair more often to save it for the days you really need it... which actually defies the purpose of a dry shampoo supposed to be perfect for a quick on-the-go fix.
I still sticked to it all the while knowing this because it is formulated without parabens/sulfates/petro-chemicals/phthalates/triclosan. Its ridiculous price per use eventually had me think twice again when I finished my spray this morning, thus setting out for the cheaper alternative brand "Batiste" which doesn't look bad on the composition. They're 1/3 of the Naturia's price and comes in variety of smells and finishes. I will voice my reviews and will edit this back as soon as I know whether it can live up to Rene Furterer's Naturia efficiency.

I'm obsessed with this stuff. Absolutely obsessed. I mean I can't get enough of this product. If I was stuck on a deserted island and can only bring one (or two hair products) this would be of them. I use this almost everyday. Even on clean hair. It gives my clean hair great "second day" texture and gives my oily bangs and top layers fluffy volume on the third or fourth day. Let me just clarify that I can go a week even up to a week and a half without washing my hair and this stuff is a life saver. My hair is two different textures at the moment, my top layers are very smooth and healthy but underneath and the last 6 or 7 inches of my hair are are damaged and very porous from a couple body waves and the balayage/ombré I had done in october '10 and my hair is slowly recovering so I prefer not to over wash and this stuff is a lifesaver. It lasts a long time I think especially considering how much I use it. I can probably use a bottle for 2 months before it's out but I prefer the travel sizes because you get the half the amount of the big size for half the price so at least they don't overcharge you like most companies do on travel sizes.

i love it! smell very nice and doesn't irritate my nose. but i hate the price! too expensive and it is gone so quickly. i have black hair so i really have to comb it thoroughly to get the powder off as much as possible. if i have curly hair that won't be good. i might buy it again but will also look for cheaper alternative.

I've used this product for around 3-4 years now and swear by it. even more so now because recently Rene Furterer changed the scent of their dry shampoo so it's not so potent.
if you cleanse your hair often this is still an absolute must have. I prefer to use it as a styling aid as opposed to a "dry shampoo". it's gives my long, heavy hair just the right amount of volume.

I'm pretty "meh" on this product. I went through a phase of trying a bunch of different dry shampoos, and this one was the least offensive in terms of fragrance (it has a mild, powdered rose scent that isn't overwhelming), but it lacked the level of absorption of Tresemme's Fresh Start dry shampoo. If your hair doesn't get too oily in between shampoos, this might work well for you. However, if you've got an oily scalp, I suggest going with Tresemme, which is about 1/2 the cost of Rene Furterer as well.

This is my absolute go to fave. Hate the price. $28 a bottle makes me weep. Just found a cheaper alternative today. Batiste. If you love RF dry shampoo (and how can you not?) It is worth a try. BTW, have also tried many versions of other dry shampoos, so fancy myself a bit of an expert.

This is only the third dry shampoo I have ever used, and it is by far the best! After using this, my hair doesn't have that awful powdery dull cast to it, it just looks normal. It makes my hair fuller, and absorbs the oil really well. My hair gets greasy within 12 hours of washing it, and within 24 hours my hair is lank, dirty looking and flat. I don't generally go a day without washing (because it looks so bad), but sometimes it's unavoidable. This dry shampoo not only absorbed the oil from my nasty-looking hair, but it made it look really clean and bouncy again. I was thrilled with the result! I will buy again, but I do think this is overpriced.

This is a very overpriced, normal dry shampoo. It doesnīt feel any different to cheaper options on the market, and though I didnīt experience such an extreme case of the product vanishing from the can like previous reviewers, I have to admit that especially when the can empties slowly, it always seems to contain a little less product after a few days just standing on the shelf. Maybe the stuff evaporates somehow, I donīt know. But Iīll definitely not buy again, because it is way overpriced.

LOVE this dry shampoo. it's the only one that doesnt make my scalp itch for days. it doesnt leave that white/grey cast that most do. it would be HG if it was cheaper and i get more out of each bottle. ill continue to buy because it doesnt dry out my hair or scalp. worth it i guess.

I have purchased this product several times. At the last purchase, I used the can three times. Then all of a sudden the product was gone. Completely, nothing left. I returned to Sephora and they sent me a new one (amazing customer service btw). However, this morning I went to use the can again (similarly after a few uses) and it is gone. Absolutely not a drop left. +25 dollars for 3 uses...no thank you. I don't know if its the aerosol or what but something is strange about this product. After the last use it was certainly full, but it has now evaporated. Not worth it.

This product does work well as far as refreshing my hair so I can go an extra day in between shampoos, and doesn't leave too much powdery residue after brushing it out. However, I've used 2 cans of this and I'm lucky if I get 4-5 uses from each can. WAY too expensive for a product that only lasts a week or two...$48 a month or more on this stuff is INSANE. Thought it was a fluke with the first can but after I went through the 2nd one just as quickly I'm assuming this is normal (and I don't use an excessive amount). Also, I noticed with both cans that there seemed to be a decent amount left after the first couple of uses, and then it would be mysteriously empty a couple days later when I needed it again - and there's no one else at my house using it! It's like it just suddenly evaporated (and how it does this seeing as it's an aeresol can, I have no idea). Definitely not repurchasing again.

This was my first experience with dry shampoo. I have fine hair that gets oily pretty fast... but this doesn't weigh it down. I find I can get an extra day out of this and that is it -- trying to use it for two days would just make my hair coated and weird. The bad thing is the price. From what people are saying I can buy that cheap Psssst brand and pretty much get the same results... so next time I'm doing that.
UPDATE: I tried Pssst and it's just as good if not better. This stuff is overpriced and there's no reason for me to ever get it again.

This stuff showed up really gray on my black hair. The instructions tell you to pat it off with a towel then comb through, but I don't like to comb too much because it ruins the purpose of preserving my hairstyle by not washing my hair again. After patting some of the grayness went away but it still left my shiny black hair with an odd grayish tinge. Other than that, it does an OK job of removing oil. I am actively looking for a better alternative but would repurchase this if I can't find one.

Absolutely stellar product! Tried Batiste from Sally's (pretty good, but still left a touch of the oilies), and most recently Rub Out by Ojon (sucks my left you-know-what), and this outshines them all. I tried Oscar Blandi's powder once upon a time, but was so turned-off by the process of shaking into hands, then placing strategically throughout the scalp (too much work!), that I ended up returning that one to Sephora.
This product just soaks up the oil so well and so fast, and like 2 reviewers below me stated, it amps the volume a bit and your hair ends up looking great!
I feel badly for the reviewer right before me that colors her hair dark and is seeing some stripping - I am going to be going darker myself here soon, so I will test that out and see what happens - hopefully it won't be a problem.
Other than this being kinda pricey and not that big a can, I absolutely adore it. ♥
Edit on 5/24/09: I just went from blonde to brunette 2 weeks ago, and so far for me, this product has not stripped any color from my hair.

If you color your hair dark do not use this product. I have my hair professionally dyed, and only recently realized that this product strips the color from my hair. I hadn't noticed before because I used a dark towel to rub the powder out, and I only rarely used the product. However, I bought new white towels and when I used one to rub the powder out a shocking amount of dark brown color rubbed off onto the towel. The product works really well otherwise as far as removing oil, but obviously this is a deal-breaker for me.

I absolutely cannot profess enough how much I adore this product. It's above and beyond HG for me. While I love the slightly dirty hair look, my scalp tends to get greasy which makes me wash my hair every single day (bad, I know). Ever since finding this product a year ago, it's basically been true love. I spray it at the roots, then wait 2 minutes for it to dry. I have naturally jet black, straight Asian hair, and once brushed in the powder is undetectable. My normally flat, slightly greasy hair all of a sudden has loads of volume, and just looks so GOOD. Because of this I can get away with extending a good blow dry 2 or 3 days, and my hair - dare I say it - manages to look only nicer and nicer!
I personally love the subtle smell of lemons on my hair, and don't know why some users think it smells weird. I suppose it's up to you, but I've only gotten compliments on the smell.
I've tried Klorane, Oscar Blandi, Ojon and even good ole J&J baby powder - I don't recommend ANY of them. Klorane lasts all of 4 uses, Oscar Blandi and Ojon both smell horrific and my hair is STILL greasy after application, and the baby powder - well let's just say it was a weak attempt and I now know why it was never marketed as a hair product, haha.
One thing I've been careful with is to wash with a clarifying shampoo once a week (I like Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo) to prevent any build up. Works like a charm. I'm going on my 3rd bottle of Naturia, and I will go through loads more.
