amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo - 1 oz.

Think of this dry shampoo as a shot of espresso for your strands. Made with antioxidant- and fatty acid-rich obliphica oil, the weightless spray simultaneously moisturizes and strengthens tresses, repairs split ends, and enhances shine, leaving hair bouncier and more voluminous. And because it relies on rice starch instead of aluminum shavings or talc, it's safe for color-treated hair.

Wasn't crazy about this at all. It worked as well as any other dry shampoo I've tried but the scent smelled cheap, like an off-brand dryer sheet.

Horrible

This product smells terrible! I used it on my daughter's hair, and it didn't work at all. I tried it on my hair as well with the same outcome. We both had to wash our hair three times just to get rid of the smell! Definitely will not recommend this to anyone.

Not the best

Didn't love the smell, and didn't find it that effective. There were others in my dry shampoo kit that worked better for me.

Not. For. Dark. Hair.

Please. Don't even try if you have dark hair. Smells great, but I couldn't even brush the white out of my hair.

Wish could give no stars

Left a sticky white residue, and flakes on hair. Bad for dark hairs.

ehhhh

definitely not for dark haired women. it turned my hair white and did not brush through well enough to make it look normal. i was pretty bummed because of how nice it smelled. at least there are a lot of alternatives.

I'll second the salt and pepper issue

I also have dark hair and had an issue with it leaving white stuff everywhere. It brushed out, but I have curly hair and that really ruins the whole point of dry shampoo, since then I'm just spreading the grease down. Maybe it was a bad batch? Either way, it didn't really seem to do anything other than add unwanted color to my hair. Didn't add grease or take any away.

Please stop

Dear Birchbox,
Please stop trying to make amika "Perk Up Dry Shampoo" happen- it's never going to happen. I don't understand how this is your "highest rated dry shampoo". What the actual....? It smells terrible, and doesn't perform well enough to compensate for the odor. Honestly, even Batiste is better.

If anyone is looking for a good dry shampoo, try the Klorane product in either scent (although I prefer nettle). It is the best one I've tried. You get what you pay for and it lasts a while.

Pungent

After receiving several samples from this brand, all are just okay and have the same overbearing pungent scent. Quality is decent but does leave a chalky residue even when sprayed from 6-8 inches away from scalp.

I am a sucker for Living Proof dry shampoo but thought "hey lets try something new" the smell if awful does an ok job of getting rid of oil but can't get over the smell! smell old ladyish
