Oh yay, another useless product by Bumble & bumble. This time I wasn't foolish enough to buy a full bottle out of my own pocket as I received this as a deluxe Sephora sample. I love adding texture and fullness to my naturally fine/limp hair, and I typically go for dry texturizing sprays and volumizing powders. However, I've discovered (through a lot of trial and error) that not all volumizing powders are created equal, and an expensive price tag doesn't always mean its going to be a quality product. I swear on my life I could use cornstarch and I wouldn't know the difference between that and Pret-a-Powder. The only difference is that Bumble's powder has a pleasant light fragrance that reminds me of the salon. OTHER THAN THE NICE SMELL, this stuff is basically a rip off.

I love this dry shampoo. It dries my oily hair and adds volume. Great for in between days. It was a gift but I will replace it for sure.

I swear I don't complain just to complain, but this product does NOT work. The label on this product says it extends the life of your blowout, adds volume, and absorbs oil. It did none of that. The only thing I liked about this product is that it fades away on my dark brown roots and doesn't look like dandruff or dusty even though the powder is white. I love dry shampoo and wanted to use one that is not in "spray" form but I will stick to my Batiste dry shampoo which costs 1/3 of this product.

On the Sephora website, this had glowing reviews but when I checked here, it was average. I should've known better to check MakeupAlley first since the reviews here are more unbiased than from Sephora.

This is perfumed corn starch. A nice smelling corn starch, but way overpriced. I do like how it fluffs up my hair a little. I use it right after I blow dry to give it more body and extend my blow out. It's very expensive fo what it is but I kind of like it enough to maybe try the travel size again. I would never buy the regualr size for the price, though.

I'm a huge fan of Bumble & Bumble products but unfortunately this dry shampoo didn't work for me at all and I had my hopes up so high especially since it claims to providing volume to hair. I have very fine hair and oily at the roots so I would need to wash it daily if dry shampoo wouldn't provide a little crutch for the day(s) in between. I have to agree with a couple of other reviews on MUA saying it definitely doesn't absorb oil and it takes away the shine from hair, it also makes them rather flat looking. Luckily I only bought the trial size which was a whopping $13.50 CAD, will return it tomorrow and go back to Batiste which is still my fave!!

I think as dry shampoos go, this one is good. I'm just not a huge fan of dry shampoo. This is less fragrant than baby powder, but it has that kind of fresh scent. The powder is very fine, and it's lightly tinted pale peach. Once blended into the hair, you can't see it at all and you don't need to use much of it. I have blonde hair and the powder disappears into it. It's good if you overslept and realize you need to run to one appointment and don't have time to do your entire glamour routine.

But honestly, I'd rather just wash my hair. Stylists use this kind of powder for volume and for styling, bumps and beehives, and...I'd rather just wash my hair. But I think if you go camping and you're away from water, or let's say the landlord shuts off your water one morning for a plumbing issue, using this powder is better than having an oily scalp. There have been times in the past that I wished for a quick fix and now I have a dry shampoo.

I think this will last me a long time because I almost never use it. But I don't regret buying it. It is better than most of the dry shampoos I've tried. However, I think Klorane's is better.

My stylist recommended this product to me and I gave it a shot even though I've not had great luck with dry shampoos in the past. This stuff is a miracle product! I use it daily, on clean or dirty hair. It is, as it describes, both a dry shampoo and volume-booster. I use it on second-day hair for the oiler spots near my scalp and also on clean hair just to give it some added texture. It smells great and the bottle lasts forever because a little goes a long way. Plus, it doesn't show in my dark hair, which has been my problem with dry shampoos in the past. I've already repurchased once in the last year and will continue to do so as long as B&b keeps making it!

This product is alright I'm not crazy about it. I've tried it mostly as a dry shampoo and it does not absorb oil all day but it does give a good amount of volume and grip to the hair it actually makes braids buns and other styles very nice and gives great texture I do like that about pret-a-powder I love it when I do my braids it's awesome but not as a dry shampoo.

Pretty standard dry shampoo. I have the trial size and keep it in my purse for when I'm out and need a little volume boost or can't wash my hair. This works perfectly for those things. Overall it's nothing mind blowing, works as well as any other dry shampoo I've used, but I will repurchase the small size to have in my purse.

I found this to just be ok. It gives me some volume but doesn't seem to last long
