Yes! I have fine, thinning, hair that is prone to be frizzy in a really unfortunate way, it's the kind of frizz that comes with hair that is miniaturized as it grows over time (hair loss related). I have tried hot irons to smooth, no luck. I've tried a lot of products from organic coconut oil to a wide variety of commercially available products & this is THE ONE that actually does …Read more

Dry Shampoo - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Cornstarch + Cocoa Powder as Dry Shampoo

Mar/16/2018

COME ON PEOPLE! This is a terrible idea. Yes, I tried it because I love to try & use natural & homemade products on occasion but this was a TOTAL FAIL. I have very dark brown hair, I mixed more cocoa powder than recommended & still it looked like I had flat, dull, grey hair, Even if it didn't turn your hair white or grey, it will make it look dusty & dirty. You know …Read more

Straight up: I bought this at Costco with the full intention of trying it, finding it didn't work, & returning it. While I am the "ideal candidate" with pale skin & dark hair, I have not had success with hair removal in the past, including 8 session of professional laser hair removal in the mid-2000's.

I have coarse, black leg hair that I can shave in the …

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I have tried many dry shampoos, they were nothing compared to this one. I have dark brown hair. It is fine & thin & generally a disappointment. Freshly washed hair on me is fluffy & fly away like cotton candy. Day 2 hair would be better, but it's too flat at the root....HELLO BATISTE DEEP & DARK BROWN! Okay, I can go 4 …

I have fine, thin, hair. I *have* to use hairspray, there is no way around it. This hairspray helps me get & hold a style better than others I have used. I think it's crazy that it's over $30 a can, but it really does make a notable difference, even my 2nd day hair is better for it.

I generally have clear, dry skin.

I am returning this product after using it twice. After a short time on my skin, it makes my pores appear enlarged & emphasizes fine lines, this may be due to whatever the illuminating factor is, I've had this issue with other "illuminating" products.

Another note, I am fair, the lightest colour was too dark for me.

Love this product! Makes it possible for my fine hair to look full & glorious & helps hold a style (for two days I might add!) .

I do not care for the scent because it lingers (until you rewash ime). I never like to smell anything but my perfume, so this is an issue for me, but won't stop me from using this for special occasions. The price tag is fairly hefty & it can …

I did find this added texture & volume to my hair & I was actually quite pleased with the results at first. The problem for me is that this seems to cause a greater degree of frizz to occur than had I not used it. It is humid where I am right now, I may try this again in cooler weather on a day where I don't have to be seen, but based on it's performance thus far, I definitely …Read more
