Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo

In a perfect world, we'd have time to shampoo our strands more than once a week. (We’d also sleep eight hours a night and hit the gym instead of the snooze button.) But for all those occasions when life intervenes, this revitalizing dry shampoo is our secret weapon. The powdery formula revives second-day strands and beyond, absorbing excess oil to provide instant lift.

Worst Dry Shampoo I've Ever Tried

I'm so glad I was given a sample of this before I ever had the chance to contemplate buying it, because it was junk. I've tried about a dozen different dry shampoos and I don't think I paid more than $21 for any of them. So, being priced at $25 was a strike against this product before I even tried it. When I actually did use it "unimpressed" would be an understatement. I sprayed a section with about the same amount I have applied with other dry shampoos and I couldn't tell the difference. I had to spray A LOT for it to be effective and because of that, you could tell it was in my hair because my hair is dark brown. I ended up having to wash my hair. I gave it to my sister to try and she didn't like it either.

I would definitely recommend other dry shampoos, like Klorane's Gentle Dry Shampoo ($20), amika's Perk Up Dry Shampoo ($21), or even Bastiste's Dry Shampoo ($8), which comes in different shades.

Purchased

I bought this because I say a tutorial and they used it. I have been searching for a dry shampoo for, well forever! This one is gross. Left my hair unmanageable, stiff, smells horrible... worst ever! :(

Really didn't like this

I have yet to find a dry shampoo that actually works on my dark hair. This one was no exception. It made my hair dull, flat, and even greaser looking. I didn't love the scent either. Definitely not for me...onto the next one

Didn't work

Maybe I just don't understand dry shampoo but I just couldn't get this to work. My hair felt so weird after using it, I would have preferred to just leave my hair dirty.

Sticky residue

I got this as a sample in my birchbox and was excited to try it, but I ended up throwing out the sample after a few tries! Whenever I used it, I ended up having to wash my hair anyway because it left such a thick, sticky residue on my hair that it looked flat and gross.

Makes hair look dirtier
Purchased

I have fine hair and I was hoping this dry shampoo would help with minimizing the oiliness that appears all too soon. When used it made my hair look dirtier and more oily. I was very frustrated as I followed the instructions and experimented to find a way to make it work. There was no way to make it work. It was an absolute waste of $25.

not good :/

This stuff just doesn't seem to work on my hair, which is the type that gets oily after just one day. It just makes it even more difficult to work with, and much of the time I end up giving up and hopping in the shower after struggling to make my hair look clean with the dry shampoo.

Great scent but that was it

I really wanted to like this product because I actually really enjoyed the scent. However it seemed to make my hair look dirtier. I tried this product multiple times and played around with how much I sprayed on, the distance away from my head, and how long I let the product sit in my hair. No matter what I did I always ended up with the same result. It was difficult to run a brush through my hair, and did nothing to reduce the oil. There are plenty of other dry shampoos that work much better than this one

Congratulations, you've found a terrible product.

If possible, this will actually make your hair look and feel worse than if you had just skipped the dry shampoo step altogether. No matter how much you comb, it stays in your hair and is actually sticky. And good luck trying to use any heat on your hair afterward. And the only way to get rid of it is to try and wash it out of your hair. Congrats Birchbox, you found a terrible product. I'm actually mad that I used it.

Terrible, felt like hairspray!

I got up late for school one day and decided to try this out instead of having to shower to save time. Well, it was like I sprayed hairspray in my hair, and made me look like the bride of frankenstein. Once I let it sit, I had to comb it out, and once I did I was able to get it in a ponytail so I looked ok, but it took awhile to comb. I almost thought I was going to have to wash it anyway. I've used other dry shampoos and they were not like that, I will be throwing my sample away so I don't forget and use it again!
