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.

I've tried many dry shampoos, including this one- and this is one of my least favorites. It makes your hair feel stiff, itchy, and there is insane residue. It looks like you have terrible dandruff! The smell is bad too. If you are looking for an amazing dry shampoo, try the Hask Coconut Dry Shampoo. That is one of the best I've ever used. Overall, I would not recommend.
Celi from Portland
This product works great! It takes away the oil and smells nice. Because of the pressure of the spray, it can put more on your hair then planned, thus turning your hair white. My hair is dark brown, but I could rub it in, and this doesn't happen every time I spray. I also really like the price. I've also tried Batiste, which is so far feels the same.
Mommafoot from N.J.
Love the smell. It's not heavy or overly poowdery.
This. Is. Awful.
Hillary from San Juan
It bought this with high hopes, because by day 4 I'm kind of oily, but this made it a thousand times worse. Do not buy this. It's greasy, and has a really bad white cast.
Good for such a cheap price
Ghost of Raven from Arkansas
I have medium textured, very short hair and this works well for me even on day 2 of no washing. The first time I used it I shook the can vigorously (as directions on the bottle say to) and tried to spray it on my hair but nothing but air came out. As another review suggested, I probably shook it TOO much, because when I tried again with minimal shaking the product came out just fine. It soaked up all the oils and left my normally very greasy hair looking pretty good. It does make my hair feel a little gritty, but I need the extra volume after a couple days of not washing. Overall, it's a good product but the directions are misleading.
Left me with dandruff like flakes
Scon from Atlanta, GA
it doesn't help pull oils out of my hair. It leaves a white color that has to be brushed out, and always ends up leaving white flakes that look like dandruff. Maybe I got a bad can, but I will not be buying another.
Emma from Portland, OR
Leaves white streaky lines, doesnt absorb oil, makes my scalp itchy, and the smell is horrible. Not worth it!!!!
Kmik from Kansas City
I had heard great things and saw this got great reviews. But this left a white residue on my already blonde hair
Val from Los angeles, ca
I was skeptical to try dry shampoo, a friend recommended this for me too try. I was surprised on how well it works for my hair
V from South Gate, Ca

Fav dry shampoo
LA CINDEE from Los Ángeles
Does the job! I don't wash my hair every day and this comes through!
D from ca
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.
Annie B from NYC, NY
I have tried a lot of different dry shampoos of all price levels, and this one works amazingly well.
Bad Ulta Experience

Unable to use the product.
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
Mollly from Tulsa Oklahoma
One of the better dry shampoo out there
A great dry shampoo
Cass from St Paul, MN
This is my favorite dry shampoo! Use and repurchase it alllllllll the time.
Yes... I already have.
LA teacher from Chino, CA
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.
