Most Helpful Positive Review Works Great!!
This product works. I've tried 5 different typed of DS. The only other brand that's effective is Suave. Dove is good, I don't like the perfume. Don't bother with Pantene, it's more like hairspray, & Styliste Ultîme (German).
I purchased the "unscented" version of NYM. Finally, a dry shampoo without a heavy perfume! THANK YOU SOO MUCH. Genius. I washed Monday night & didn't wash until Friday. See picture. I applied day after I shampooed. Perhaps if u apply when hairs too greasy, it's not gna work as well. I stopped using DS bc I couldn't stand any of the perfumes, no matter how subtle or strong. Esp when hair isn't squeaky clean, it's gna hold onto smells more.
This is my holy grail now. I have fine, thin, long hair to my elbow. I color w highlights. My roots get greasy esp bc I live in Florida & it's hott! I'm low maintenance. No blow dry, no flat iron, no products. I used to use a root lifter. Now this is my root lifter. It gives hair a texture.
I need to mention, this shuld spray white. First time I tried it, I think I shook can too much. It just sprayed air (butane). User error. Cple days later, I tried again. This time I shook bottle & let it sit for 30-60 seconds, then it sprayed white. And I do a good brushing beforehand. It's harder for me to brush the roots after a few days. My hair gets knotty at the root anyways.
Thank you NYM. Love 💚the unscented. It works like a charm 👍
Most Helpful Critical Review Completely Destroyed my hair
I work retail, so occassionally, I am scheduled to work at 8:00 a.m. When that happens, I usually take my shower the night before. My hair is normally pretty oily, so it looks greasy and limp if I don't shampoo it every day. I bought this dry shampoo on a whim. It's relatively cheap, and a fairly big bottle.
When I first started using it, I loved the results. It did a good job of controlling the oil and you couldn't even tell I'd washed my hair the night before. I also liked that you got the desired effect using very little product.
But then in March, I was schedule for 8:00 a.m. shifts 5 days in a row. I washed my hair the night before, and then used this dry shampoo before work in the morning. The following week, I noticed a major change in my hair. It became very dry, brittle, and started falling out. When I blow dry my hair, I run my fingers through it as I'm drying it, just to fluff it out a little more. When I would do this, I would find numerous strands between my fingers. I also started noticing more hair falling out in the shower. Not enough to really freak me out, but definitely more than normal. My hair started looking like straw, which has NEVER been a problem for me before. I realized it had to be from this dry shampoo. So I stopped using it and threw it in the trash. But the damage was already done to my hair.
I tried several deep conditioners, but couldn't find one that repaired the damage and made my hair healthy again. But then I found Neutrogenia Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditoner. I had to use about a palmful of product and leave it on for 5 minutes (as opposed to the 1 minute it says on the tube) but the Neutrogenia Deep Conditioner has done a good job of repairing the damage. My hair is soft and looks more healthy than it has in months. It's not 100% restored, but it is very close. I suspect that it will only be a few more days before my hair is back to normal.
When I saw the ingredients for this dry shampoo, I was absolutely floored. The first 3 ingredients are isobutane, propane, and alcohol. No wonder it fried my hair! Needless to say, I don't recommend this product to anyone, and will definintely NOT repurchase. If you are looking for a GOOD dry shampoo, I suggest the one by Suave Professionals.

Does the job! I don't wash my hair every day and this comes through!

In my search for the perfect dry shampoo and after trying many others I bought this. I hated the scent, it did not absorb oils, and made my head itch. I will be sticking with Baliste from now on.
Did they change the formula?
Xochitl from Dallas
This and the Batiste dry shampoos are my favorites. I've been using them both interchangeably for years now (depending on what's in stock) but after two months of not using this, I'm so disappointed. I couldn't see any residue in my hair, but it felt heavy and weighed down after using this. It also made my hair feel like straw and it kept tangling and knotting up. At one point, conditioner did nothing and I had to rip the knot apart with my fingers.
I have colored hair, and I take very good care of it. I have never found something that damaged my hair so quickly. So upset.
Ari from Arizona
It works. Doesn't leave a residue i'm a darker golden blonde. The only downside I have to say is that you need to use A LOT of product if you have long hair like I do. It's light and feels like nothings on your head, even with a lot but maybe that's why you have to put so much🤷♀️
Katie from MN
I have BLONDE hair and can see the white residue on my hair/forehead. It's chalky and not effective. It leaves my hair very stiff and almost matted (even after brushing). The other dry shampoos I have tried are Tresemmé and Batiste and this was by far the worst of the three.
Karissa from San Antonio
Fresh scent. Gave my limp, oily hair a nice lift.

I have tried a lot of different dry shampoos of all price levels, and this one works amazingly well.

Does the job I guess.
Michmercc from Georgia
I don't hate it. I do use it. For the price, I'll buy it again. Lots of scents. Only drawback for me is that the residue feels really thick. And I'm dark haired girl, so the thick white residue isn't cute. Unless there's a darker one available and I just don't know about it. I'll keep looking for the perfect dry shampoo.
I will continue to buy this
BB from FL
Always worked so well for me. I always find myself gravitate to this dry shampoo specially. It smells great and def does the job as I do dye my hair a lot. 4th time purchasing and I think I'll stay loyal until another dry shampoo can change my mind.
Good for the price
JJ from California
Even with my Asian black hair, no white residue. Smelled ok. I have oily scalps and fine hair. The oil control effect is small, but at least it worked at such low price

One of the better dry shampoo out there
A great dry shampoo

I use this on mornings I don't shampoo and I use it after school on days we have PE. I take it on vacation.... it's a life saver!!!
I recommend it to teachers and any profession.
Momom from MO
This is my favorite dry shampoo.. I have tried several and many have a very strong smell. This one still has a scent but to me, it is more pleasant. It almost smells like sunscreen - like tropical and beachy which is definitely better than overbearing perfume. It does show up white on my dark hair, but I give it a quick rub and it blends in.

No white residue!!
It gets the job done
Andi Bee 🐝 from Minnesota
I have been using this dry shampoo for about a year now. I use it almost every other day for my day 2 hair. I apply it pretty much as soon as I wake up. My hair is fine, and gets greasy quickly on day 2 without dry shampoo. The clean freak version is nice because although it does come out lighter, that fades quickly. It does give my hair a bit of lift to help give some "oomf" to my usual braid or messy bun. The fragrance usually fades in a few minutes. Overall it gets the job done, and with the low cost I keep coming back to it. I wish that it would do a bit more cleaning/refreshing on the front end, because it seems like by 5pm I'm more greasy all over again. I also feel like it takes a lot to really make my hair look refreshed. I think this product is good if you want something that will help you with day 2 hair and keep the cost down.
Leaves a residue but it works ok
Julia from Michigan
This stuff does work a little bit, but it leaves the chalky white residue on your hair that is very noticeable, and not pleasant to touch. It doesn't come out until you wash your hair. Other than that it works fine and the price is good.

I love this when I want to skip a few shampoos to keep my color longer and not dry out my hair as much.. Love this product
I would buy this again
Ole from Bellevue,Wa
Always keeps my hair feeling fresh and nice! I have very flat hair and helps give it a little volume and not
Great for super oily hair
Anita from Los Angeles
I was hesitant to try this because of reviews I had seen that Batiste was a way better product, which doesn't really work for me so I figured this wouldn't either. I have oily hair, cannot go 1 day without washing because it'll look flat and oily the next day with no body to it. Decided to just go for it and purchase it, glad I did because it's now my go to dry shampoo. Leaves no residue or white cast if blended well. Super oil absorbent. My hair looks as if it was washed, can just shake up my hair threw out the day and it'll absorb oil and leave feeling fresh all over again. The only complaint I would have is that it finishes very quickly, for such a big bottle I would have thought it would last longer. Other than that, this is great. Will continue buying.
ive used this for YEARS!
Alissa from Blair County
my girls with wavy, coarse hair: THIS IS HOLY GRAIL. you have to use the smallest amount and it's not damaging vs other dry shampoos!! i had to use 1/4 amount of this vs what other dry shampoos (the dove hello hydration one specifically. it didnt do a single thing!!). i picked this up when i was 14 ONCE and don't think i'll ever go back now. it has a nice, light scent and works amazing. it does leave a minor residue on your hair, but keep in mind so do most other products!! taking a fine toothed comb (i prefer rat tail for this!!) at the end of the day removes the residue. you can see it when you're combing too, it's an odd gray-white color!! don't be spooked by bad reviews. try the travel size and you'll see what i mean
Jo from wisconsin
I love this! I was nervous bc with other dry shampoos my head would itch really bad.. but this smells amazing and i had no itches. I only wash my hair once a week because I dye my hair alot and washing less is good for hair health j tend to get greasy about 3 days after I wash it. I was my hair on friday and my package with this came on Monday. with the corona I waited 24 hrs to open and then tuesday used it. I couldn't even tell that I hadn't washed my hair. it looked sooo good. And by Thursday my hair was still looking and feeling less greasy. The smell is also a plus in my book
