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.

I have thick hair which I do not wash every day and so have tried several dry shampoo type products and this one is by far the worst. Yes, even worse than Aussie. The smell is not refreshing in the slightest, but more like the cheap hairspray we used in 9th grade to achieve our big hairstyles that were popular at the time. After giving it ample time to set and dry it was still terribly sticky. Like trying to brush your hair after you've doused it with hairspray, actually. No matter how long I left it to set & dry or how hard I brushed I could not get all the powder out. It clung, fused to my roots until I sprayed my hair with water and brushed it while blow drying. Even then it left my hair with a terrible residue, completely unmanageable, and dull. I will stick with my $5, ridiculously named Pssssst from the drug store, which works like a charm. If I could give this product no stars, it would still be too many.

Good and Bad

I haven't tried too many dry shampoo products but I don't think the combination of both volumizer and dry shampoo work well with my hair. It was sticky and stiff in my hair (straight and fine) and left a powdery residue that made my hair look gray. However, it does smell great and I liked how it added texture the next day after shampooing.

eliminates grease but too stiff and sticky
Sampled

I use a powdered dry shampoo - oscar blandi pronto, which I love. I gave this a dry though to see if it would be better at adding volume. I followed the instructions, and it did seem to take up the oil, but it also left a feeling like hairspray. My hair was sticky and then stiff. Not a big fan.

Great for gym or busy days

So this came just in time! Trying to juggle early a.m. workouts, work with a LONG commute, and then social/work activities every night last week including packed weekends with yoga, lunches, (better) job searching and dates.... this came in handy, I loved the scent and it added texture so that I can do updo's as the activities in my life wore on. I always prefer washing my hair, but when life gets in the way, I'm happy to have this sample! It felt clean too and not just like I was adding more bulky product to my hair.

Really liked it

I read a lot of bad reviews for this because of the smell, I actually didn't mind it. If you need a light duty dry shampoo, this is a good one. I would reach for it on second day hair, but anything after that I would still use my HG, Blowpro.

Great product!!

I have been looking for a dry shampoo...so when I received this in my March Box, I was so excited! I immediately tried it, and LOVED it...the smell may not be for everyone, but I really liked it, and it lasted throughout the day, which again, may not be for everyone.

2nd Day Hair
Sampled

being the mother of a 2 yr old means that at times 2nd day hair is a must for me. I have fine hair but a lot of it. The Serge Normant Dry Shampoo let me run out of the house quickly without feeling like I had to completely re-do my do. I know that it will get rid of any excess oil and give my hair bounce. I would use it again and again in the future

Not worth it

I was very excited to try this product because I LOVE dry shampoo but this particular one made my hair very stiff and sticky, it did not absorb the oils at all.

A new must-have for me!!
Sampled

I don't normally write reviews but I am really impressed with this product! I used it yesterday morning and there is nothing that I don't love. Very little white powder residue and it really plumped up the roots. Most of all, it smells amazing! The fragrance lasted all day too! I kept thinking how great I smelled! I love Oribe products and the smell is one of the best, but the price is too high so I dont buy it very often. I am buying several bottles of this today from Birchbox!! Buy this! You wont regret it!!

This product has a great scent. It definitely holds true to being a fine dry shampoo. The bottle was a decent size and lasts awhile.
