Not impressed
Purchased

I use a lot of dry shampoo as i have an extremely high-maintenance hair color. I usually use a spray-type, but this was rated well so i thought id give it a try. I found that the spray is much better for me as it gives a much more even application. And i thought this had a very unpleasant "chemical" smell, not cute at all. Used it one time, and ill never use it again. Back to my old stuff! Not sure why this is as well-liked as it is, i thought it was absolutely godawful.

Not good

This product was not the best dry shampoo.

I have other ones that worked better like Ojon or Treseme. This just sits in my closet now.

Unhappy with Dry Shampoo
Purchased

I purchased the full size of this product as I love dry shampoos. I must say though I wasn't happy with this one and have returned it. It is a powder form and difficult to distribute evenly. It left white powder spots in my hair where it was applied no matter how much I brushed or shook my hair out. I'll stick with aerosols from now on.

It's okay, not as good as I hoped
Purchased

I bought this product after watching the Birchbox tutorial on dry shampoo. I wash my hair twice a week, so I reply on dry shampoo about 4 days/week. I have a dirty blonde base, and was surprised how much of a white residue it left. It actually made my hair look gray. Plus, it didn't add much volume. I would use baby powder before purchasing this product again, mainly due to the steep price.

What's The Big Deal?

It seems to me like any other baby powder. You see the white streaks when applied and is no different. It does smell good.

Works but leaves sandy scalp

This is a nice smell and it dried up my hair and left some fun texture but no matter how much I brushed, I always felt the product on my scalp. It made me feel itchy later. I've used many other dry shampoos this one is not my favorite. Actually prefer a drugstore brand over this one. This is kind of like just using cornstarch in your hair with added fragrance.

This is Exciting Why?
Purchased

I've heard a lot of hype about this product and I even used my BirchBox points to purchase it. I'm not sure why I did now, as it is pretty much baby powder in a fancier bottle. Don't waste your money.

Great for Travel!
Purchased

This product is great for travel - since it is under the allotted size restrictions, but I wish it was in an aerosol. I feel like if it were - then you would get a bit more coverage.

As promised

This product does the job, it helps a good blow out last another few days, but be prepared - it has a very distinct smell (kind of like a lemon household cleaner) - if you like it - great, if not - you are stuck with it.

Just okay

I really wanted to love this product. I've tried tons of dry shampoos, and I had high hopes after reading all of the positive reviews. I will admit that my hair looked pretty good, but it felt absolutely disgusting. I think my hair may be too fine to soak up this product effectively. Sure, it looked alright, but it felt like how I imagine an overly hair sprayed, 1980s pageant contestant's hair to feel.
