Serge Normant Travel Size 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 travel-sized bottle of dry shampoo is our secret weapon. The powdery formula revives second-day strands and beyond, absorbing excess oil to provide instant lift.

Too Sticky!

I love checking out dry shampoos as I have superfine hair that can go oily and limp, or dry and frizzy depending on the weather.

This one is made my sandy blonde hair very tacky and clumpy, plus turned it grey! And the smell is off: cloying, but trying to be musky?

This is one sample I'm thinking of giving away, but I can't think of anyone I want to gift sticky, weird smelling hair.

Grease Ball

I received this in my March 2013 BirchBox. I've tried Dry shampoo is the past and it's always made my hair look incredibly greasy almost instantly. I decided to try this anyways and once again my hair turned even more greasy than it was. I ended up giving this product to a friend who can use dry shampoo. Dry Shampoo is simply not for my hair.

sticky and gross, smells like grandma

I hate bad reviews, and this is only so long to justify it.

I ended up with two bottles of this stuff after friends got them in their boxes and hated it, too. I love dry shampoos so I was excited to try a high-end product.

First, I would advise anyone who does not have blonde, white, or warm gray hair to never use this. I have bright red hair and I thought I was going to have to wash my hair before I left the house to get this stuff off, which totally defeats the purpose of dry shampoo.

Second, it works for volume, but it's sticky. This stuff was so sticky it made little globs on my hair, like when people WAY overdo the hairspray. And I couldn't just brush it through my hair because the sticky made my fine, curly hair get tangled up. I got the globs and white out by rubbing my head with the heels of my palms. This took about 10 minutes. Might be great for a wedding, dance, clubbing, pageant, or an Amy Winehouse costume party, but not for normal wear.

Third: smells really weird.

Lastly, the packaging of this product really annoys me. Normally I'm pretty indifferent to product design but I would have never picked this stuff out of a store. It looks like something my grandmother would have bought out of a 1980s AVON book.

Luckily I work in a place where I can leave products in the bathroom with a note of recommended use and they find a new home.

Hated It

This made my hair: Dirty, sticky, ugly, awful. I had to wash my hair immediately after using this because it looked so awful. It was basically like hairspray with a grey-ish color to it.

NO, NO and NO!!

I hate giving bad reviews but I feel that I owe it to my fellow girls. If I'm going to recommend products then I feel I have to discuss the ones I think should be avoided as well. On that note I'm am not a fan of dry shampoos at all, because I can never seem to find one that does what it says it will. I continue to try them because I believe that washing your hair too often is not necessarily good for its overall health. My hair is naturally oily but it always seems to come out dry, coarse and overly fried whenever I use a dry shampoo. This one was no different. I even asked my brother his opinion and he said it felt harsh and weird. When any guy makes a comment about a beauty product good or bad, that says a lot.

Not a fan...

I have thick hair and I am picky with my hair products.. this just made my hair oily and gross. I tried it twice and threw it out I just wanted to wash my hair more then ever.

NO GOOD

This is the worst dry shampoo I have every tried. It made my hair super sticky and wet and never felt clean even after it dried. I do not recommend to ANYONE! Very disappointed.

Just use baby powder

I found this dry shampoo to be super sticky. I didn't feel like it dispersed the "dry" shampoo everywhere. Also, later in the day I found spots of white stuff from the residue left over from the shampoo.

Too sticky

Maybe it's just because I have curly hair, but I hated this product. It made my hair all sticky, and of course, I wasn't about to comb it through my hair. I do not recommend this product

not for me

I did not like this at all! it was super thick in my hair and the instructions stated to brush out the excess powder, I couldnt even get a comb through my hair after the product set. I ended up having to get back into the shower to wash my hair, completely defeated the purpose of the product :/
