I love dirty hair days!
Purchased

This stuff is the greatest. I haven't had the best of luck with spray dry shampoo - I always miss spots and I tend to run out of it quickly. With this, I can spot-add to any trouble places on my scalp. I should mention that I have dark brown hair and have no trouble with powder spots showing. It adds so much volume and smells great. I'm definitely going to order this again. And again.

Fabulous dry shampoo
Purchased

I LOVE this hair powder. The bergamot scent is fantastic. It goes on light, and lasts for at least 24 hours. I would recommend avoiding the hairline as the powder may be visible -- just start a tiny bit from the roots. I can't stop smelling my hair when I use this stuff, and the packaging is super cute.

Great for the on the go guy!!
Purchased

So as a busy guy that likes to sleep in until the last possible minute I don't always wash my hair in the morning. This product is a life saver it gave me that perfect just washed hair feeling without the time needed to actually wash it. the volume it gave my hair also was a great bonus. I will definitely add this product to my purchase list again.

This product smells nice and applies easily. Great for those days when you wake up too late to wash your hair.

Good smell, wasteful application, not great shampoo
Purchased

I really wanted to like this. Such a cool, modern-chic bottle, all natural ingredients, no aerosol...all the things I like in a dry shampoo, but it didn't deliver the results I was hoping for. First of all, every time I dispense it, half of it ends up on my countertop and floor. What little actually gets to my roots doesn't make much of a difference and doesn't comb out like I expect a dry shampoo to. I realize that dry shampoos don't cleanse as well as actually shampooing, but this one just doesn't live up to my expectations based on other dry shampoo powders I've used. Smells good though.

AMAZING STUFF but where's the patchouli!!

This is my first hair powder I even used, and I still go pack to it. I switch between this and Lulu's. The only reason I'm giving 4 instead of 5 stars is because Birchbox doesn't offer the Patchouli scent! WTH? (Alder's Patchouli Powder has a slightly more androgynous smell than the Lulu one, which is why I love it). Although, the Eucalyptus one is a really great scent. :)

Regardless, great product. I have A LOT of very fine but wavy hair. I tend to air dry and just scrunch, and only wash 1-3 times a week. Some kind of powder is necessary for refreshing my hair, especially now that I have bangs.

If you love smelling herbal and comforting, definitely recommend.

Very good powder dry shampoo
Purchased

I got the bergamot scent. I use it in-between washes to absorb excess oil and it works very well. I have very blonde hair so I have no issues with any powdery finish. The product can be a bit messy, so I apply it over the sink. Next time, I will probably try a different scent. I love bergamot, however, this isn't as citrusy as I would have expected.

Works as described
Purchased

I love the scent and I love that no residue is left in my dark blonde hair. The texture is great and really mops up the oil.

Got it to extend hair washing when camping, meh...
Purchased

I was so hopeful, but unfortunately let down. It didn't absorb any oils, and i used several "doses" thinking i was doing it wrong... I will stick with the tinted spray dry shampoo, which i am in love with... I was just hoping the scent of the powder would kind of act as a bug repellant... oh, well, i tried..

Did what it should do
Purchased

I will admit I'm not a fan of the smell like I thought I'd be, but the powder does what it says it does. It made my hair have volume the day I washed it and uses the powder, and the next day did the same and took away the oil from not washing my hair. The smell goes away quickly if you don't like it and put a good smelling hair spray spritz on top.
