I have dark hair and many dry shampoos do not work well for me. Well, they work but leave a weird white residue. For the ones that do work, I often will have to brush over and over again to try to get the white out. I found one that worked, no white, but the scent was awful. Another made my scalp itch. Now I sound like Goldilocks (what about Chocolocks?). This is almost Just Right. It doesn't leave my hair white or flaky, works well, and I'm not allergic to it. The scent is subtle. The only thing I don't like is that it can be a little messy. With one exception, most dry shampoos I've used spray. This one is a loose powder. Once you get the hang of it, it's great!
