I think this is the PERFECT dry shampoo for curled hair, volume, or putting your hair up. If you are going to wear your hair straight and down, it might not be right for you. It does really have an impact on texture, which is where I think the negativity is coming from. If you're looking for silky straight second day hair, this probably isn't the dry shampoo for you.
But if you're looking for waves, curls, or volume: it is so so so perfect. Sometimes I use it even if my hair is clean, just for volume and texture. It lets me go a lot longer without washing my hair, too. I'm on day 3 right now and have gotten a lot of compliments on my hair today. I'm wearing it down and curled.
