amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo - 1 oz.

Think of this dry shampoo as a shot of espresso for your strands. The weightless spray absorbs excess oil and dirt, leaving locks clean and deodorized as well as lighter and softer. Made with antioxidant and fatty acid-rich obliphica oil, the formula simultaneously moisturizes and strengthens hair, repairs split ends, and enhances shine. Moreover, amika's dry shampoo relies on rice starch instead of aluminum shavings or talc, and it's safe for color-treated hair.

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.

Not good for brown hair

This really didn't work for me. It left a powdery white residue on my hair, and my hair would be greasy and flat within a few minutes.

Not for dark hair.

I do not like this product. I have dark almost black hair, so it makes me look like I have salt-and-pepper hair after use.

I like it

Not impressed. For the price of a full size bottle, I have used a more well known brand that works much better. It makes my hair feel gunky. Great smell though.

Not the dry shampoo for me
Purchased

I have straight, fine hair and love the boost to my strands dry shampoo gives. Alas, this product didn't do the job for me.

Both myself and my husband strongly disliked the scent. Also, my hair still felt limp and distasteful after use.

Love the Amikco conditioning hair masque, but I will pass on this.

Did nothing
Purchased

I might as well have sprayed my hair with plain old air. It did absolutely nothing at all. My hair might even have been more greasy after using it.
