amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo - 5.3 oz.

Think of this dry shampoo as a shot of espresso for your strands. Made with antioxidant- and fatty acid-rich obliphica oil, the weightless spray simultaneously moisturizes and strengthens tresses, repairs split ends, and enhances shine, leaving hair bouncier and more voluminous. And because it relies on rice starch instead of aluminum shavings or talc, it's safe for color-treated hair.

Smells nice, but not for me
Sampled

I usually use Jet Lag dry shampoo by IGK, and it works well for me. I tried this, thinking it might be nice to branch out to other brands/products, but it just didn't work well for me. It was easy to put on, with a little bit of whiteness in the initial application, but that went away when I rubbed it in.

This product didn't really take care of the greasiness like I expected it to. It did make my hair soft, which was nice, but my hair was definitely still a little stringy about an hour after application. I'll use up the sample I got in my box, but I don't think I'll be purchasing the full size.

It does smell nice.

I Heart Dry Shampoo
Sampled

I've been on a quest lately to find a dry shampoo that I really love. This one definitely smells the best of the one's I've tried. It's easy to use since it's a spray and doesn't leave a white residue in my hair.

Did the job!
Sampled

As a dancer, I often find that I don't have time to go home and shower before I have to jump to the next thing on my calendar. I struggle to keep my hair looking fresh post-rehearsal, and this is the first thing I've found that did the trick! Thrilled to find this, and even tested it on my 12-year old son's not-so-clean hair one morning... he loved it, and so did Mom!

Great product for dark, oily hair!
Sampled

I have very dark hair, which gets visibly greasy within 12 hours of a wash. It's been a struggle for me to find a good dry shampoo which actually leaves my hair looking clean, removes oil, and doesn't leave my hair covered in a white film. I got a sample of this product in my last box, and I'm in love! It leaves my hair looking fresh, blends in with my dark hair, and extends the time needed between washes by about 12 hours (which is huge for me!). I would definitely buy this product in the future.

The smell gave me a headache...
Sampled

I’ll be honest in that I’m pretty new to dry shampoo. I have very dark brown hair and another brand I had bought at target that said “no residue” ended up leaving white patches of product in my hair. I was hoping this sample would be different as it’s a high-end brand. I was very disappointed. First and foremost, the smell of this product is SO overpowering it gave me a headache all day and I hardly sprayed any in my hair. Secondly, it left white patches in my hair around my scalp and roots even after I tried blending it in my running my fingers through my hair. All things considered, I was very disappointed with this dry shampoo and the horrendous smell makes me not want to ever use a product from this brand again.

Ok

I was expecting a dry powder to come out, but was surprised when a foam like substance came out. It didn’t direct the spray to the part like other dry shampoos so I had white spots on my hair that I really had to work in to not look awful.
