Holy grail
Purchased

I used all of the dry shampoos you can get on Birchbox and then some - Oscar Blandi, Bumble and Bumble, Amika, Batisse, Klorane, Drybar. This is by far my favorite. I tried it today and I thought at first it would leave a lot of residue since a lot of product comes off the nozzle but it cleaned just fine and added a lot of body to my hair - I was actually refreshed, and it doesn't have a very strong smell which I appreciate. I'm surprised I liked it so much and I am too lazy to write reviews so that should tell you how impressed I was! :D

Best ever

I am a dry shampoo junkie looking for her holy grail.
I found it!! PHD dry shampoo is the first dry shampoo that I've absolutely loved. Cleans well and smells delightful. Definitely have to shake shake shake well otherwise you will have residue but c'mon follow the directions and you will be amazed

Amazing...BUT

This dry shampoo truly is a beauty breakthrough product. I have tried many dry shampoos--both upscale and drugstore varieties--and only one has done a good job of keeping my oiliness at bay. However, I still have that heavy feeling at the roots, like my dry shampoo days are my dirty little secret. My hair may look clean to everyone else, but I can feel the product in my hair that made it look that way.

PhD dry shampoo absolutely, totally cleans my hair! I couldn't believe the hype, but it's true. My hair genuinely felt almost as clean as if I had showered. It's a miracle!

The "but" comes in for the smell. Oh my gosh. The smell!! The previous reviewers before all liked the smell, and to each her own, but I could hardly take the stench after 20 minutes. Thankfully, I had used it at night, so by the morning, the smell was mostly gone, but I honestly don't think I could use this during the day. The smell is too strong.

As amazing as this product is, I'm still deciding whether to keep it or return it because of the smell. (Hence the four-star rating instead of five.) Part of the need for dry shampoo is being able to decide on a whim if I'm going to skip shampooing one day, not having to plan in advance so that I make sure I only use this as night to avoid suffocating my officemate (and myself).

Buy it don't hesitate
Purchased

I have very fine hair and have always had to wash daily. I've started using dry shampoos as I've gotten older and I've used a lot of them I mean a lot - probably 15 different types. this stuff slays. Actually cleans my hair and makes it look fresh and smell clean. This is the best out there.

best dry shampoo I've ever tried
Sampled

Birchbox loves to send me dry shampoo and I usually use them once and give them away. Hadn't ever liked any until I got this one. Works great on my day 3 hair to make it look good again and smells nice. I am BUYING a dry shampoo for the first time which says a lot!

Really works
Sampled

I've come to appreciate dry shampoos but most of the time I don't love how they make my hair feel. I've always had very healthy, touchable hair and a lot of dry shampoos make my hair feel sticky. This one doesn't leave my hair feeling tacky - it actually feels cleaner and it smells fresh. So far, I haven't found a better dry shampoo.
