Birchbox Breakdown

This dry shampoo actually cleans hair. How? Fast-acting powders soak up not only oil but also sweat and odor. Then Living proof.®’s patented molecules allow for easy removal, so hair looks, feels, and smells cleaner. Save time, wash less, live more.

How to Use

Shake can extremely well for maximum cleaning results. Hold canister about 6-10” away from dry hair. Section thoroughly and apply product in a sweeping motion to dirty/oily areas. Wait 30 seconds for the powders to activate and cleanse. Then remove by massaging and shaking at roots with fingers or brush hair. Apply more if need, make sure to shake again. Style as desired.

Holy grail

I used all of the dry shampoos you can get on Birchbox and then some - Oscar Blandi, Bumble and Bumble, Amika, Batisse, Klorane, Drybar. This is by far my favorite. I tried it today and I thought at first it would leave a lot of residue since a lot of product comes off the nozzle but it cleaned just fine and added a lot of body to my hair - I was actually refreshed, and it doesn't have a very strong smell which I appreciate. I'm surprised I liked it so much and I am too lazy to write reviews so that should tell you how impressed I was! :D

Best ever

I am a dry shampoo junkie looking for her holy grail.
I found it!! PHD dry shampoo is the first dry shampoo that I've absolutely loved. Cleans well and smells delightful. Definitely have to shake shake shake well otherwise you will have residue but c'mon follow the directions and you will be amazed

This dry shampoo truly is a beauty breakthrough product. I have tried many dry shampoos--both upscale and drugstore varieties--and only one has done a good job of keeping my oiliness at bay. However, I still have that heavy feeling at the roots, like my dry shampoo days are my dirty little secret. My hair may look clean to everyone else, but I can feel the product in my hair that made it look that way.

PhD dry shampoo absolutely, totally cleans my hair! I couldn't believe the hype, but it's true. My hair genuinely felt almost as clean as if I had showered. It's a miracle!

The "but" comes in for the smell. Oh my gosh. The smell!! The previous reviewers before all liked the smell, and to each her own, but I could hardly take the stench after 20 minutes. Thankfully, I had used it at night, so by the morning, the smell was mostly gone, but I honestly don't think I could use this during the day. The smell is too strong.

As amazing as this product is, I'm still deciding whether to keep it or return it because of the smell. (Hence the four-star rating instead of five.) Part of the need for dry shampoo is being able to decide on a whim if I'm going to skip shampooing one day, not having to plan in advance so that I make sure I only use this as night to avoid suffocating my officemate (and myself).

Great product

Fantastic dry shampoo, but it’s a bit pricey for there being so many comparable options available at lower prices!

I wanted to try a new dry shampoo, something different than the Amika I purchased before. I was not really happy, I followed the directions, but it didn't seem to get my scalp as clean as the Amika.
