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.

Not a fan

I felt like this dry shampoo actually made my hair look greasier and flatter after using on day-after hair. I used it two or three times and not again.

Terrible Smell But Works Well
Purchased

I think this product smells terrible and I rarely use it because of that. But that being said, it does work well and provides an even coating that doesn't look chalky or dusty on my medium brown hair.

Not for me

I hadn't tried dry shampoo before this sample came and I don't know that I'll try it again. It seemed to work okay. One of the times I used it there was a bit of visible reside left on my hair. The other times though it seemed to be fine. It did give my hair some body/texture.
My biggest complaint was the scent. All day long I could smell it. It was overpowering and left me with a dull headache. I tried it a few more times as a pick-me-up after a long day before going out for the night. However the scent still bothered me. The product didn't work well enough for me to suffer through the smell. I will not be adding this to my collection.

didn't work as advertised for me

I have very oily skin and oily roots; I'm one of those women who needs to wash her hair every other day (and ONLY doesn't wash it every day because I know how bad that is) or I will look like a surly teenager from the 90s grunge subculture, just add a flannel shirt tied around the waist.

This dry shampoo smells great, and it works well as a texturizer on my fine, straight hair when it's already clean, but as a dry shampoo it, if you'll pardon the pun, falls flat. I didn't notice any decrease in oiliness at my roots, even when used as directed. I rely on dry shampoo to get me through that second day hair, and this shampoo just didn't cut it for me.

Oh, the smell!

Honestly, I can't say too much about the effectiveness of this dry shampoo because of the smell. It was so strong, that after a few minutes I couldn't take it and just pulled my hair back into a bun. Even still, throughout the day I was catching whiffs of it. Plus, it left a residue on my hair which made it feel dirtier.

Overwhelming smell

I couldn't get past the smell of this. There are other dry shampoo's out there that work without the smell.

Although this does dry up oil, which is nice. It leaves my hair looking grey. Great size sample, you actually get the chance to try it a few times before judging. I won't be buying a full size of this.

I really wanted to like it ..

I wanted to like this product, really, I did. And to be fair, since I often use dry shampoo around my bangs, I've tried a fair number of them, so maybe I'm a harsh judge - but I could not get over the scent of this product. It is overwhelming. I don't quite know how to describe it - it's sort of a cross between heavy powder and musk. I didn't like it at first, but I thought that it would soon dissipate. Unfortunately, it didn't. It was so bad, in fact, that I washed my hair as soon as I came home.

It's a shame because the actual product is great - it' works really well, isn't too heavy but gets rid of the oil and really does breathe new life into your hair. Unfortunately, I couldn't get past the smell.

very vanilla
Sampled

I've used tigi's/bedhead rockaholic dry shampoo before and loved it! But the catwalk one has such a strong vanilla fragrance that it gave me a headache and you could smell it even at the end of the day. I do think it does a great job as a dry shampoo and leaves your hair with great texture, but I just could not get over the smell.

Smells lovely
Sampled

I LOVE the scent of this product and I think it's effective as a dry shampoo. Not really what I need - I was hoping it would be good with texture as well. When I put it on, my hair feels whispy and light which doesn't help it hold in place.
