        I got this on a clearance find. I love trying new dry shampoos. It doesn't leave the white residue but it is too wet for me. It doesn't soak up all the grease so it is ineffective to me. It smells nice if that's an important matter to you.

        I wouldn't buy this at full price. Save your money.

              My stylist recommended this however it did not work for me. My hair was left greasy, tangled and stiff. So glad I tried the travel size first, before forking out the full price.

                I really like this product. I had never been a fan of dry shampoos before finding this one. It does the trick, leaves my hair looking like it has been washed, gives lots of body and works great. My only complaints are that I am not a real fan of the smell (but that disappears fast) and it can dry your hair out a bit. But, when that happens, I have used this then sprintz'd a bit of oil on and the combo is perfect. It has allowed me to go one to two days longer without washing my hair.

                      I have been using this product for years. I have not found other brands that I believe work as effectively. There is a hairspray-like smell when spraying. The product should be sprayed 6-8 inches from your hair. Hair will not pick up the smell if held away appropriately. Also, follow directions and shake well before using. I have not had white residue when following the instructions. For anyone concerned about the environment, aerosol itself is not bad for the environment. CFCs are. They were eliminated as the propellant in aerosol cans in the US many years ago. No worries about the environment.

                            This dry shampoo is great! The trick to no white residue is to shake the can upside down before use. The product IS translucent, but you must shake upside down.

                            This does make my hair matte, but that's sort of the point (no grease or oily looking). It is also great for texture and hold.
