Most Helpful Positive Review New favorite dry shampoo
I LOVE THIS. I've recently transitioned to trying to wash my hair every other day and my goal has been to wash after 4 days. I'm new to the dry shampoo market and I've tried different batiste products and those don't do it for me. I always feel gritty, and the more I used those the more white cast I got on my Asian black hair. I've switched to not your mother's dry shampoo and I hated that too.
I've been co washing already with hask's charcoal conditioner and I love the smell of that, so when I heard they made it into a dry shampoo I was excited! And I'm loving this dry shampoo. It doesn't make my hair gritty and crispy. And it doesn't make my hair feel more oily or greasy! And no white cast! 0You smell the fragrance when you spray it on, but throughout the day it's very faint and subtle. Also it's been 5 days since I last washed my hair and my hair looks so clean and like it was washed yesterday! Love this and will definitely buy again.
Also, usually the longer I go without washing my neck usually gets super itchy from other dry shampoos, maybe that's tmi, but neck feels fine with this!
Ps. Spray it on first and wait 30 seconds or when it doesn't feel cold on your scalp anymore! Combing or running your fingers through while it's still cold doesn't feel optimal somehow!
Most Helpful Critical Review Works like every other dry shampoo
I had high hopes for this due to the charcoal ingredient, but I guess the addition of oils pretty much wiped out any effect the charcoal could have had. I have an oily scalp and can only get away with every-other-day hair washing by using dry shampoo on the off days. I feel like I have tried them all (over all price ranges) but I still haven't found one that does an effective job of absorbing oil. This one is just like the rest... when I first spray it on, it absorbs the worst of what's there, but a good amount of oil remains. Then it just gets worse as the day goes on. Pretty much my only option is to spray it on, rub it in with my fingers, wait a couple minutes, then use my FINGERS to pull my hair back into a ponytail. If I pull a brush through it, it just distributes the unabsorbed oil and makes me look like I'm attempting the Kardashian "wet look", which believe, me, I am NEVER attempting. I would not re-purchase this, and I am still on the hunt for a dry shampoo that actually absorbs oil. The only good things I can say about this one is that the smell is nice but not overpowering and that it doesn't make my hair MORE greasy than it originally was (and believe me, I have tried LOTS of dry shampoos that made my hair more greasy, such as Not Your Mother's Plump for Joy and Herbal Essences Bio Renew Volume).

For several years I've been trying to stop myself from washing my hair everyday. I had tried a few different dry shampoos and I instantly hated the results, which resulted in me going back to washing my hair every day. Now I've been a little over a month strong without washing my every day. I go every 2-3 days without washing I use this dry shampoo and it soaks up so much oil that I can barely tell I haven't washed my hair. This stuff is absolutely amazing and I'll continue to buy it! I also just recently dyed my hair black and originally my hair was a dark brown. It does spray on white you just have to brush through your hair a few times to blend it. It's not noticeable.
Better than batiste!!
TB from GA
I have brunette hair and it gets oily the 3rd day of not washing! This stuff doesn't leave a white cast on my hair and I can spray this in my hair on day 3 and I can go another day usually without adding more! It's just the best! It also doesn't make my hair stiff like some dry shampoos do! I like to be able to run my fingers through my hair and this still allows my hair plenty of movement!
Lightweight and not sticky
sunkitten from mid-Atlantic
Not sticky, not heavy, not dusty and the smell isn't overbearing. I have wavy hair and I love that this doesn't affect the texture. It's the closest dupe to the amika brand I've found and nowhere near as costly.

Great value and pulls the oil and nasty smell out of your hair. I am unable to wash my hair everyday or my scalp bleeds, so I have to use dry shampoo in between washing. This has a lovely scent and didn't leave a white residue!
Great for the price!
Shan from Las Vegas
This product works great for the price point! It smells good and does it's job.
Works well for me
Jen from CA
This is my favorite dry shampoo. The smell is light, fresh, and clean. It absorbs really well and feels completely weightless. Will definitely be purchasing again.
Crazy curls from Chicago
I was unsure how much I'd like this dry shampoo especially with such low price point. But the reviews people left gave me hope and I was definitely impressed and so happy I tried. Smell is pleasant, goes on well, doesn't weigh my hair down and doesn't color my hair white. Will be buying again!!
GeorgiaFan from Midwest
Everything it's supposed to be. Not white and chalky, like all the others. Great coverage. Great price.
Best dry shampoo
Sherisesays from Florida
I have tried many dry shampoos and this is the best can be used on any hair color
Cece from Pa
I love this dry shampoo. It smells amazing and it actually absorbs oil. It doesn't leave a gross feeling in my hair. Does spray on white but once I brushed it through it was gone. I love the price too!
My all time favorite dry shampoo!
Angel from Las Vegas NV.
I use this between hair washes, or if I want to add a little oomph/volume to my hair. It smells absolutely amazing!!!!! This has been hands down, the best dry shampoo that I've used.
Smells good, hides oil, no residue.
Lila from Tx
This stuff is great. Most favorite dry shampoo I have ever tried!
Best dry shampoo imo
LCC from North Carolina
I received this free, 3-4 years ago.. can't remember the exact timeline. Anyway, I don't usually wash my hair everyday but I wasn't a fan of dry shampoo; they left white flakes, my hair felt stiff.. but then this came along.. and my whole world changed for the better, haha. Seriously, best dry shampoo I have used. I experimented with other ones after this & always returned back to it (why did I even bother to experiment with diff ones?) My hair does not feel tight, sticky or stiff. It smells awesome. Buy this, you will not regret it.

I honestly don't feel like it's doing much or even anything at all.
Better than the expensive brand!

I love this!
Effective dry shampoo
Misshiker from Sacramento
This is my favorite dry shampoo. It's effective at absorbing second-day hair and scalp oil. Be sure to spray and rub in and then brush out, and voila! Other dry shampoos fail part-way second-day hair for me and my hair gets greasy during the work day which is annoying. Not with this one! Totally recommend.
Will never switch to another dry shampoo
Bren from West Lafayette, IN
I've always been critical of dry shampoos and had a hard time finding one that I really liked. Batiste was decent but it ran out so fast for me. With how fine and oily my hair is, I prefer a lot of dry shampoo. I decided to change to Hask Charcoal Purifying Dry Shampoo three years ago and haven't changed brands since. It purifies my hair while also giving it body and doesn't have any type of sticky feeling like other dry shampoos can have. I don't recommend the other Hask dry shampoos besides this one, so if you've had bad experiences with those don't let it stop you from trying this one out!! I have light blonde hair and I do think that this would work better on someone with blonde hair rather than a darker color.
Not the worst, definitely not the best
Review Queen from Tennessee
I waited to use my whole can up before I left a review. For reference, I have straight and thin hair (not super thin but still). The first time I used it, I sprayed too much and my hair looked horrible. It made my scalp super itchy too. Not forgiving it all. The second time, I used less and it looked okay. Now that I've been using it up, I hate how my hair looks after I use this. It leaves such a weird feeling on my hair and left a grayish cast over my brown hair. You REALLY have to work it on for it to look good. For me, I want a dry shampoo that's quick and gets the job done without the hassle. I'm going back to my favorite, Not Your Mother's dry shampoo.
Not worth the hype
Cait from New York
I really had high expectations for this product based on the rave reviews. Unfortunately, this product didn't work for me. I try to wash my hair only 2-3 times a week because it is colored purple. By the second day, my hair is usually pretty oily.
I sprayed SO MUCH of this product on my hair and it just didn't work. My hair still felt oily.
My favorite dry shampoo!!
BMW from Morristown, NJ
I have tried many dry shampoos and this is my favorite! I like that it is free of aluminum starch. It has a nice light fragrance ( a little lemony. But not strong). It works well to absorb oil and can extend time between washes a day or two. I used to wash daily, but since my kids came along it's every other day at best. I also use to give hair some volume and to correct times when I have used too much product. The price is reasonable too. I highly recommend!
New Holy Grail
Lovelylittlejan from Los Angeles, CA
I'm on my fifth bottle of this Dry shampoo and it is honestly the best dry shampoo I have ever tried and I've tried a lot. I have thin straight oily hair and this makes it so I can go more than one day without washing it. It's definitely my favorite and one I recommend to anyone with an oily scalp like me.
leaves too much gray/white residue
mckenzi from TN
you can rub out the white color it leaves behind but its just a lot sometimes but it realllllllllly does dry out your hair in the spots you need it to but it can leave your hair looking dull bc of the color deposit if its like mine and dyed red.
Never looking back!
Sam from Florence KY
I've used so many different dry shampoo's over the years. I never found one I loved more than this one. I have pretty thick/coarse hair. It takes a few days for oil to build up but when it does it's so shiny and greasy looking. When I spray this it takes all of that away and is so soft!
It does what it says it will do!
AmberL11 from Virginia
I actually loved this product for it's functionality. It gives you a wonderfully refreshed look and absorbs oils. But I am one of those that plays with their hair a lot throughout the day and white residue kept coming out on my fingers which just drives me nuts! Otherwise, awesome product!
my new favorite
Caroline from Chicago
I used this product when my hair was very greasy (hadn't washed is 3 days). It gave volume, smells fantastic and most importantly completely got rid of the greasy look. My hair also feels fantastic, not crunchy or with terrible white marks they won't rub in. Great price too.
