Birchbox Breakdown

We usually reach for coffee when our sleep-deprived brains need a little energy boost— when we need to revive our tired tresses, we make a beeline for amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo. The weightless spray absorbs excess oil and dirt, leaving locks clean and deodorized as well as lighter and softer. Plus, it can be used on color-treated hair.

How it Works

The lightweight formula contains sweet-smelling obliphica (sea buckthorn berry) oil, which features a laundry list of powerful ingredients: antioxidants, vitamins, healthy fatty acids, omegas 3, 6, and 9, and omega 7 (generally found only in fish oil). Together, they moisturize and strengthen hair, repair split ends, enhance shine, and restore hair’s natural balance. Moreover, unlike many other dry shampoos, which contain aluminum shavings, amika’s version includes natural rice starch instead. It’s even talc-free.

How to Use

Shake can vigorously. Hold 10-12 inches away from scalp and spray gently, concentrating on roots. Massage through hair with fingertips, and style as desired.

Butane, propane, sd alcohol 40-b, oryza sativa (rice) starch, disteardimonium hectorite, fragrance (parfum), cyclopentasiloxane, hippophaea rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) seed oil, water (aqua), lilial, limonene, hydroxycitronellal, lyral, citronellol, coumarin.

Absorbs oil and great light scent
Purchased

I have dark brown hair and some dry shampoo formulas end up making my hair feeling more greasy than refreshed. I like this formula because the sent is subtle and fresh, and really absorbs excess oil without leaving my hair looking chalky. I also appreciate that the bottle lasts a long time, which is great since I'm not going to go broke over stocking up weekly on dry shampoo.

Love Love Perk Up Dry Shampoo

Great for that second day hair boost. Give your self 15 extra minutes of sleep every other day by not having to wash your hair.

My new favorite
Purchased

I was going to purchase the dry shampoo that I had received in one of my monthly boxes but I saw the reviews on this and decided to try it instead. I'm so glad I did! This is my new go-to for dry shampoo. It goes on clear so I don't have to worry about blending white powder in my dark hair. It soaks up he oil with out dulling the shine.

Nice

I decided to switch it up and try this instead of my usual Klorane. I don't feel it's as effective as Klorane though. I like it but don't love it.

Doesn't work for me at all.
Purchased

I've tried many dry shampoos before. This one, unfortunately, didn't work for my hair at all. I use dry shampoos every other day between shampooing my hair and need it to help me battle the oily roots. This one has very little effect if any.

Long-lasting, fresh hair
Purchased

I only like to wash my hair about 2-3 times per week, and this stuff has saved my life! It goes on light and leaves no heavy or waxy, white residue like other dry shampoos.

GREAT DRY SHAMPOO!
Purchased

This was my first time using dry shampoo --- I actually decided on this brand by reading through the reviews. It smells amazing and for my really long / straight hair, this works perfectly! My hair is also black and I love that this doesn't leave a white / powdery film or anything (I agree with the reviews I read, this is awesome!) I also bought the travel size I liked it so much :)

Just Right
Purchased

I am new to the whole dry shampoo arena, so it took be a couple of tries and help from my friend to actually get this product to work. It works well, especially with extremely oily hair. The scent, which I'm a stickler for, wasn't too strong, but lovely enough to linger for a bit.

Great product with nice scent
Purchased

I have tried many brands of dry shampoo because my hair is very thin and can't handle alot of product. I just started using it, but think this is one of the better brands for my hair type and I will buy it again.
