Most Helpful Positive Review It works! And I'm a brunette!
I can understand why brunettes might not like this product. Yes, it does leave a bit of a white residue. The trick is to use VERY LITTLE at the scalp and use your fingers to vigorously rub it in. I have tried every dry shampoo known to man and this is the only one I like; not only does it give body and lift at the scalp, but it also gives a bit of moisture. Not grease, but moisture...and I have an oily scalp. In my opinion this is B&B's best product-period. I figure this little bottle will last me at least a year. The best part is I don't have to wash my hair everyday, and having fine, straight, color-treated hair with an oily scalp I always had to. Highly recommended!
Most Helpful Critical Review Perfect Product with one HUGE Exception. Brunettes beware!
I like this powder better than the spray, which I have loved for years. It works better and smells wonderful. I swear by this product and will continue to use it. The fatal flaw is not offering it in dark for dark-haired beauties. I am 52 years old and lucky enough to have nearly zero grey hairs. My hair is dark brunette. When I use this white or creamy product, it makes me appear as though I have grey roots. I am not using too much and know Bumble and Bumble may say I should wait for it to soak in. It never completely does. I have bangs and need the help up front but all day long at work (even when I rub it in to no end) it looks like I have grey hair grow out. I ask you Bumble and Bumble, PLEASE make a dark version of this wonderful product! I also use the brown spray, but it is not the same product.

This is a hidden gem that was recommended by my hair stylist. It works like a charm, smells amazing and doesn't feel gross or leave residue like other dry shampoos. The bottle lasts FOREVER (at least 6 months using its 3x/week) which honestly surprised me.
First Powder Shampoo
De from Illinois
I wash my hair typically once a week, sometimes twice. So I'm dry shampoo obsessed. I felt like I was running through my usual dry shampoo, living proof, SUPER FAST. The salon I go to sells this so I picked jt up at Ulta so I could redeem points. At first I wasn't completely sold on the product. In the beginning I was applying too much directly at the scalp & not far enough down the roots. After doing this I can last 1 week without washing. I get some volume & some grit to my fine thin hair. Also, this is the most neutral muted scent in a dry shampoo I've ever tried. It will not overwhelm you or give you a migraine. It's been a month & the bottle is still 3/4 full.
A Huge Letdown.
Rose from Washington
After reading all the glowing reviews and recommendations I purchased this product to use in between washes since I have colored hair. Although the product does absorb oil, it leaves my hair frizzy, and no matter how much I try to massage or work in the product it still leaves a white cast. I've tried using it in multiple ways to reduce the frizz and white cast but I can't seem to get it to work for me.
I was also disappointed that I didn't read how about much product came for the price. The bottle is much smaller than my expectations, and eventhough everyone says you need a little, I feel like I end up having to use more than recommended to control my oil on second day hair, and I have rather dry hair and scalp to begin with. I'll probably donate this product to one of my friends who recommended it to me because it just isn't for me.
Buying this for years
shertc from zLouisiana
love this product and have been using it for years. No product build up.
cecile from New Orleans, LA
I borrowed a friend's in a pinch 5 years ago and never looked back. This stuff lasts forever and will FAR outperform any others. I use dry shampoo 1-2 times a week, and this will be the third bottle I've bought since 2015. THIRD BOTTLE!! You cannot get that kind of use out of a drugstore or aerosol dry shampoo. Think of the savings!
The scent is very nice, too. No sugary mess like NYM's that turns you into a walking cupcake. This one is a sort of adult baby powder scent, with a nice sophisticated musk to it. It's not overpowering or ridiculously strong either, just enough to make you feel fresh again.
Faith from NC
Love it! It's definitely similar to baby powder how you apply it, but does a great job of removing grease and leaving hair looking fresh.
Best Dry Shampoo Ever!
Beauty Babe from Santa Clara
I have used this product for a few years now, I always go back to it. I had ran out one time and only drugstore spray dry shampoo was available. Yuk! It does not do anything like what this product does. It's great at absorbing oils on the scalp and I don't feel it's clogging. I feel like it does clean as much as a dry shampoo can. As someone with recently thinning hair I rely on it to give me a boost. It's my go to product every day for fresh full hair. Maybe the bottle could have a better nozzle to distribute the powder but I have success by using my fingers with powder poured on and running it through my foots.
Best dry shampoo ever
Stella from New Jersey
This is the best dry shampoo out there. I've tried them all. (Or a lot anyway!!) a little goes a long way!
Can't live without it!
Kristin from Texas
I have never met a dry shampoo that worked on my long, fine (and dare I admit quite greasy if I go a couple days without washing) hair. Pret a powder, however, is a different animal all together. More than just a dry shampoo, it can also add texture and volume to locks on a "flat" day. But mostly, it is my go-to when I wake up with not so fresh hair but need to run out the door in a flash. Brush, shake some around your scalp/part, massage in, and wallah! Take your hair from nappy to socially appropriate in seconds! Also has a nice, subtle scent.
Amazing and lasts forever
PH from Milwaukee, WI
I started using this because I loved batiste but couldn't justify how many aerosol bottles I was going through. I use dry shampoo every single day and this keeps my oils at bay, my hair smelling nice, and one bottle has lasted me over eight months! I can't say enough good things about this product and I will repurchase this over and over again.
Hands down my favorite
Sacnfoxy from Oklahoma
I love this magical powder. I have long hair and I normally put this in at night, place my hair in a bun, and viola...in the morning, I have freshened up smell good hair.
Great for oily hair!
Steffay from Oakland
I have extremely oily hair. I've tried every dry shampoo, this is the only one that doesn't leave my hair looking looking even greasier or oilier. However, It does leave my hair on dry course side. I have a lot of hair, I apply liberally and have to either do it outside or stand in the shower do apply. Otherwise it leaves a fine powder all over the bathroom and my other half complains...
The Best Dry Shampoo Ever
Lindy from North Carolina
Before my daughter recommended this product to me, I had tried several spray-on dry shampoos from other brands. Prêt-à-powder is so much better! I love it because it keeps my hair looking and smelling clean for a lot longer. My fine hair is fragile, so I try not to wash and dry it more than a couple of times a week. This product is also is a great root lifter when my hair gets a little flat on top. Even though I use this product a few times a week, the 2 oz. size lasts a long time.
Great smell, difficult application
Sara B from Missouri
My hair is super dark and thick, this is a but difficult to get on without turning my entire head white. I'm also not sure if it's causing buildup or if I was already having an issue.
Finally found HG travel dry shampoo!
Andi from Michigan
I finally tried this in store and it disappears into dark hair. It doesn't add too much texture to the point that my hair is stiff like some other dry shampoos.
I love that it's non aerosol - which means it doesn't have to fit in the liquids bag for travel.
I wish there were a size in between the travel and regular size. The travel is too expensive per oz and too small. The regular size is larger than I'd like to carry for travel or a gym bag.
Nika from Iowa
This is an awesome product, and I like it a lot better than similar products that come in spray-form. It definitely comes out looking like a cloud of baby-powder has hit my roots, but it quickly and easily gets worked-in, and disappears. My hair is mostly straight, so some quick finger-combing or tousling is all that is needed to get the white powder to dissipate. I usually put this product in while my hair still looks clean, as I find it continues to work and look fresh for several days after the initial application.
I really like that this product continues to work, without the build-up that is typical of spray-in dry shampoo. It keeps my hair looking clean, and gives the roots of my hair continuous volume, and does so without any crunch or stickiness.
RK from PA
Heard great things about this.....so sad it didn't work :( I had to use SO much powder and it barely made a difference! Still had greasy hair. Much easier to use a normal spray bottle than try to sprinkle this powder everywhere.
My favourite dry shampoo! Worth every penny!
Phoho from Orem, Utah
I've now had this for over 3.5 years and it's still going strong. This last FOREVER! And I use it probably 3-4 times a week. So much better than spray dry shampoos and works amazing! Got all my sisters to buy it too.
I'll never buy anything else.
Leslie from TX
This is worth every penny. I can't stress that enough. Don't waste your money on drugstore brands. The bottle lasts forever, it smells fantastic, and the product itself lasts so long in your hair. Not only does it help give me an extra day between washes, it adds a decent amount of volume. I'm brunette and have zero issues with any visible powder. A little goes a long way!
Best dry shampoo ever
Jen86 from Cleveland ohio
This is the best dry shampoo I have ever used. Dont know what took me so long to try this stuff. I have literally tried efer single dry shampoo on the market. This is the best trust me. It definitely absorbs all the oil and makes my hair look way better. I have very dark hair and it gets oily really fast. I put this in after I wash my hair and it keeps the oil at bay for 3 days. Amazing!
Bottle is not full
Yenn from San Marcos, CA
The bottle was at least a quarter empty when I received it. I feel its too expensive if that's all you get. But it has good quality.
I would buy again
Natalie from San Luis Obispo store
Love this stuff
Cara from Tyler, TX
Most dry shampoos leave my hair with gross looking white splotches, even after trying to massage them into my hair. This stuff is THE HOLY GRAIL of dry shampoo, it's so lightweight and easy to blend. It's makes my hair feel like it has just been washed and LASTS. I seriously love this stuff
Good for oily scalp
Vk from Pleasanton, CA
This powder is really good for oily hair. It keeps it fresh and non greasy. Helps style out your hair as well because it helps hold it in place even if you haven't washed your hair in a while.
Best dry shampoo out there
Kmc7 from Hanover, NH
I received a sample of this ages ago and I keep buying it because I've honestly never found a dry shampoo that works better than this one (trust me - I've tried out a ton of different brands). It makes my hair look super clean while providing volume without leaving noticeable white residue behind. It's basically magic in a bottle. I use this on days when I hit the snooze button too many times and need to get to work without looking like a hot mess.
