The BEST dry shampoo

By Heidi

from Los Angeles

Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo:

I've tried many dry shampoos and from other high end brands. This is by far the best dry shampoo. I used it once and didn't notice my hair being oily for two days after. The best part it doesn't mess with the texture or feel of your hair. Doesn't leave your hair sticky or stiff. This product is literally perfect and a life changer for me. Highly recommend.

          This product was recommended to me and I definitely feel it did a good job on my hair. However it did not make 5 stars because it did give my hair a rough feeling. For the price I feel it should make it more smooth.

                  I was excited to try this product because I had read and heard such great reviews. Unfortunately, it didn't work on my hair at all even just the day after I washed my hair forget about after a workout. The thing that stills works best is just regular baby powder.

                    I'm back to trying to wash my hair every other day, which can be a tricky transition for my blonde, fine hair. I've used a variety of dry shampoos in the past, and while there's a lot I would recommend, this is unlike the others in that it truly feels and looks like it cleans your hair. Typically after using dry shampoo, my hair isn't soft and touchable, but with this dry shampoo, it is. It won't add as much volume as other dry shampoos, but it actually cleans and doesn't leaven behind as much residue.

                        A:

                        It's not a clear formula, so some white residue, that is easy to remove, is normal and expected—especially if you have dark hair. To remove the white residue, rub and massage hair with fingers and/or use brush. A boar's bristle brush will be the most efficient in removing the powders. If white residue still exists, use a blow dryer.

                        PhD Dry Shampoo will remove sebum and oils. Volume sprays and hairsprays are mainly resin based products, so we recommend brushing through the hair before applying our Dry Shampoo.
