TIGI Catwalk Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo

If you’re a devoted Birchbox reader, you’re probably well aware that we have a serious infatuation with dry shampoo. Our latest obsession is this game-changer from hip brand TIGI. A couple of quick spritzes instantly zaps excess oil, perks up flat locks, and lets us go an extra day (okay, four) without shampooing.

I thought this was hair spray because of the container, but realized it wasn't after I sprayed it. The scent is too strong. My nose was itching the whole day. I would like something like this with a very light scent or no scent at all.

Not for Curly Hair
Sampled

I have curly hair but if i bush it, my hair just fluffs up majorly so I do not brush it dry. This product is good for getting the oil and such out of hair but you do need to brush it in and it just is not a good solution for curly hair.

Sticking to baby powder
Sampled

I didn't mind the smell or the sensation of the product (actually felt almost like a cooling sensation when I first sprayed it on). I didn't see any real results though. I felt like I used a good amount of the product too so couldn't imagine how much it would take and cost if it was a matter of using more to get results. I have long hair and oily scalp (I can't go a day between washing). Unfortunately, this product won't do the trick for me, but I will share the sample and hope someone else has better results.

Ineffective
Sampled

My hair is fine & gets oily if I don't wash it every day. I use Klorane dry shampoo now that works well. This Tigi product is not effective as a dry shampoo. The smell is overpowering & the aerosol spray made my hair feel greasy and weighed down.

Scent is too strong!
Sampled

I have to agree with Jesse with the scent reminding me of a strong male fragrance. It's strong and long lasting. I've tried it twice. Once using it as an all over spray and once with targeting my roots. It did not come out completely clear for me. But it did come out hard and fast. I got some initial lift but I can't get over the smell of it. You could never use this and perfume together!

Not a fan of the fragrance
Sampled

This seemed to do a decent job of absorbing oil and adding lift when I gave my roots a quick spritz, but the smell was not at all worth it. Very strong and flower/powdery. Might be fine for the runway but I went to a dinner party smelling like I'd rubbed my hair with deodorant and it lasted for hours.

Overwhelming
Purchased

It does the trick, but certainly not the best dry shampoo in the world. The smell is extremely, overwhelmingly perfumed which is almost suffocating. Even when spraying a small amount directly on the hair, it seems to somehow envelop my entire bathroom. Definitely try to only use this by an open window or well-ventilated space unless you want to be walking through a thick cloud for 10 minutes afterward.

Strong scent
Purchased

I liked how this product worked but the smell is way to perfumy. I could smell it in my hair all day long and it gave me a headache.

Better than nothing...

Of the several dry shampoos I've tried, this is my least favorite. It feels more like it's coating over the oil, rather than alleviating it. At most, it's worked okay for perking up bangs if they're barely oily at all.

Not worth it
Purchased

I liked this product at first, but then it ran out after only a handful of uses. I have tried other dry shampoos and they lasted me a while. This one, not so much. Will never be buying it again.
