If you accidently over do it work a small amount of the Meta Sheer Finishing Oil through your strands to remove excess powder.

Serge Normant

Birchbox Breakdown

In a perfect world, we'd have time to shampoo our strands more than once a week. (We’d also sleep eight hours a night and hit the gym instead of the snooze button.) But for all those occasions when life intervenes, this travel-sized bottle of dry shampoo is our secret weapon. The powdery formula revives second-day strands and beyond, absorbing excess oil to provide instant lift.

How it Works

Perfect for all hair colors and textures, the lightweight formula combines strengthening Moroccan cedar extract with amplifying cornstarch for a fresh, volumized finish with no heavy powder residue. Plus, the petite bottle is perfect for stashing in your purse or desk drawer.

How to Use

For best results, use on not-so-fresh, slightly dirty hair. Shake the can and hold about 10 inches away from your head. Spray a small amount (seriously, a little goes a long way) on your roots, focusing on your crown, sides, and part. Let it sit for a minute to soak up any oil, then massage the powdery formula into your scalp. Brush through and style as usual. Note: If you accidentally spray on too much product, set your blow dryer to a low temperature and use a round brush to blend the dry shampoo into your strands.

A necessary travel companion
Purchased

This shampoo is great. It didn't make my hair feel heavy with produce and the fragrance was understated.

Like hairspray

It worked but it felt like hairspray on my hair and I didn't like the way it felt on my hair. I would only use it when I pulled my hair up. Wouldn't recommend it. I like other dry shampoos that I have bought from birchbox much better.

Leaves my hair sticky

This stuff feels like it doesn't come out. No matter hoe little I put in or how much I brush out my hair it just stays sticky. I'm not a fan.

Too heavy and sticky
Purchased

This dry shampoo was disappointing. Using only a small amount is still too much of this product for my hair. It has way too much hold (like using hairspray) and I then had to use a finishing spray just to keep my hair from being stiff. If you are looking for a dry shampoo that refreshes your hair, this is not it.

Not impressed
Purchased

I love dry shampoo. I use it even on days that I've already washed my hair to give extra texture. This is one of the brands out of about 10 that I've tried. Probably one of my least favorite - the smell is ok, but it left my hair feeling very waxy. Not going to buy again.

Does it's job.
Purchased

I have fine hair and it can get really murky looking if I use too much product. This dry shampoo, if used lightly, seems to work well with my hair. I would recommend it. You just need to be cautious of how much you spray.

Not crazy about this dry shampoo
Purchased

I use the Serge Normant dry conditioner and love it, so I thought I'd try the dry shampoo. I did not like the way it made my roots feel sticky. I read the directions and other customer reviews to make sure that I was using it correctly. It made me feel like my hair was dirty.

Smells Amazing
Purchased

This dry shampoo is perfect for 2nd day hair. Absorbs excess oil from my roots and give my hair an incredible lift. Doesn't hurt that it smells amazing. A little goes a long way. Too much can leave your hair feeling a little sift.

okay but not really a shampoo
Purchased

I liked the fragrance of the dry shampoo, but it didn't leave my hair feeling any cleaner? if anything it added more product to my already too much product hair.
