Great product
Purchased

This is a great product. Although it's described as a dry shampoo, given how much grit and hold it adds, I'd say it's also a texturizer and volumizer. Think Oribe dry texturizing or Serge Normant dry shampoo except in solid form. Scrape cautiously with your fingernails as a teeny tiny bit goes a long, long way. Also, the scent is light and fresh, but considering how little you'll need, it won't make a difference in how your hair smells.

I think I like it...
Purchased

I have dark brown moderate thickness slightly wavy hair. I currently have 7 different dry shampoos under my sink from drug store to expensive brands and have tried a lot of others. So far this one seems to reduce the oil the most without looking ashy. It's not exactly intuitive to use (compared to a spray at least) and a little goes a long way but it definitely works and the smell is pleasant. I like that it also provides some volume. If you use too much I can see how it would make your hair super dry like other reviewers noted. I take about a pea sized amount, squish between my finger tips and rub at my roots, then run my fingers through that dreaded behind-my-neck greasy hair and repeat that maybe one more time if needed. I'm actually surprised that this weird space agey stuff works but it does.

Genius invention

I've never felt anything like this product... it is a cream that transforms into a powdery feel when you rub it in your hands. It lets you put dry shampoo on only the oily areas of your hair and gives serious texture in a 'bed head beautiful' kind of way. Genius!! A little goes a long way too. Will be using this all the time!

game changer

this product has changed up my hair game. i have a really oily scalp - as in, I have to wash my hair everyday. my stylist recommended doing my best to go 3-4 days between washes and I told her I couldn't do it - so she intro'd me to this product. my biggest piece of advice, is that the cream, when rubbed into its powdery texture, is best applied right onto your scalp where the oil builds up. it absorbs from your scalp and prevents that 2nd day greasy hair smell. do this before you get greasy, or apply in conjunction with davines hair refresher to keep soft and clean.

will repurchase forever
Purchased

once you get used to the texture and how to use it on your hair, this makes the best day 2/day 3 styling paste especially for braids and textured messy buns. If I'm applying as a dry shampoo I'll apply it the night before so it can start to absorb oil overnight and I'm good to go the next day. I'm completely converted to this dry shampoo from my HG psssst dry shampoo.

I love dry shampoo, but this product is NOT for my fine, thin hair. If anything, it weighed it down and made it greasy. It was worse after the product than before, for sure.

Dry shampoo paste

I didn't really care for this paste I was excited to get it but my hair feels to gritty and im not all about it i like the smell and was hoping it would help my hair look fresher from not being washed since the next day. Seems to made it more oily than it was. Its an okay product!

Great for texture, not so much for freshness
Purchased

This is awesome after styling, but I wouldn't use it for it's dry shampoo title. It doesn't make my hair feel fresh, in fact, I feel I need to wash after a day of using this (sometimes I do, but sometimes the texture from this product is SO GOOD after a day's wear..). I love it for texture, and I feel like after wearing it for a day it looks even better, although it feels a little grotty to me, lol. All in all, it is a great texturizer, not a dry shampoo.

Amazing product
Purchased

This is great. It smells a little strong for my taste. But I have already gotten such versatile use out of this product that it's forgivable to me. I use it out of the shower, I use it day 2 or 3 without washing my hair. It doesn't leak all over my bag when I travel, and I don't have to worry about killing the environment with aerosols. I have very fine wavy hair with bangs, and this works great to boost texture, eliminate oil, and just enhance my already existing style. It's great.

It works best to use as a pre style lotion. Will continue to use.
