I've used a lot of dry shampoo and this is a good product, but it does take some finessing. I wouldn't recommend this for first time users because this isn't the kind of dry shampoo you spray onto your scalp, tousle, and go. The spray itself is maximized if you follow it up with a quick blow-dry, or if you put it in before bed and sleep on it. Both these methods minimize the residue and pump up the volume, they also cut down on this shampoo's tendency to be a bit stiff and heavy. I will say that this is the first dry shampoo I've ever used that has given my hair incredible volume that lasted throughout the day, when I came home after a long day at work, my hair still looked freshly coiffed.
