    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo:

    I bought this product to extend days between washes. I have used this product on both barely dirty and very dirty days and it consistently makes my hair feel matted and gross. I have very thick hair so that may be the problem but I will not be using it anymore.
    It does add volume, which is nice, but also leaves a white/grayish residue (even when holding can 6-8 inches from hair as instructed).
    Also, it has an odd smell. I wouldn't say it's bad, but it is very strong.

    Good & Bad

      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo:

      This stuff works well at minimizing the greasy look of unwashed hair and it gives really nice volume and hold. However, it leaves a white residue on my medium-brown hair that is tricky to hide and the smell is extremely strong. I typically love strong, fresh scents, but this one is over the top. It has a melon/cucumber scent that lasts ALL DAY. I can't wear perfume when I use this because it clashes so obviously.

      It is possible to hide the white residue, but I've found that I really have to rub the product in to get it to disappear and I'm always afraid that I might miss a spot and head out in public with dusty gray-ish hair. I've found that baby powder works just as well as this product.

      Again, volume and hold is great and a few times I've used it on just washed & dried hair for that reason alone.

      All in all, I won't buy this again. I'll hang on to the can for our camping trips when I have to skip a wash or two, but I won't try this product again.

      Less wash, more color

        Use so I don't have to wash my hair every day. I can go 2-3 days between washes now and my hair is not as frizzy either. Less wash, less drying, less flat iron equals healthy hair.

        Did not work for me

        By Katie

        from USA

        Comments about Alterna Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo:

        I carefully followed the instructions and have tried it multiple times. It did not smell good, left my hair matted, and did not noticeably reduce the oil in my hair.

            Comments about Alterna Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo:

            I have tried several dry shampoos and this one is definitely a keeper! I use this every other day to help extend my color. I really like that it doesn't leave any visable residue or darken my hair like others I've tried.

            A little goes a long way. Dont go crazy! Start with a little spray, rub in it your roots/scalp with your hands and spray more if needed. Also, I get a much better result when I make a point to keep the bottle 6-8 inches from my head like the directions say.

                I've tried a lot of dry shampoos and this one smells good but doesn't really do anything. Cheaper brands like Tresemme work a lot better.

                  Comments about Alterna Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo:

                  This was my first time using a dry shampoo...I don't know why I waited so long, as I don't wash my hair every day. I tried it on day three dirty hair and i couldn't believe how within a minute my hair regained its volume and body. I didnt have to use a lot, sprayed it mostly at the roots, a little on the rest of my hair, let it sit for a moment, then hand tossled. awesome stuff.

                  While the product did reduce the oil in my hair, it smells like rotting vegetable. I'll stick with the powder type dry shampoos for the more pleasant scent.
