Most Helpful Positive Review Great smell, works great for women with alopecia
I have alopecia, so I use this product to cover my scalp. Having thinning hair sucks, the dermatology treatment I've been receiving for the past few years has worked wonders for my hair's regrowth, but my hair is still thin on the top & top/back of my head. This product is the very best tinted dry shampoo I've ever used. I see so many negative reviews about the brown stuff getting on your hands if you touch your hair. I've never found one tinted dry shampoo that DIDN'T get brown stuff on my hands, pillow case, etc. So yes, you'll need to wash your hair before bed or cover your pillow case. This is a tinted hair product, not magic. That being said, this product has the least amount of stuff falling onto my face, clothing, etc. compared to the other 6 brands I've used. The smell is AWESOME, maybe a bit overpowering, but I've actually had compliments on how good I smell (lol). Also, this product gives my hair GREAT volume!
Most Helpful Critical Review I will not buy this again
I used it the day after washing my hair. It made it corse and thick and I have pretty silky hair, too silky and it get oily very quickly. I prefer the regular volmizing one, but let the sales associate convince me to purchase the one for brunettes. It leaves your scalp brown! That's not sexy. And it's missing the volume that the other gives you. Feel like I got tricked by that associate.
Reviewed by 177 customers Great for days, but not on fine hair
Savvy from Tennessee
As much as I like this product, there are a few flaws. It soaked up the oil in my hair easily, and lasted for DAYS. However, it also left my hair feeling like there's a ton of product in it and a little hard to manage. I have a job where I'm required to keep my hair up however and it helps with that a lot. I would recommend this to people who either have to have their hair up all the time, or already use a lot of products. Im glad it came in brunette but it does run your shower brown!

I have used several different dry shampoos and like the brunette ones but this one is the worst. I have a hard time brushing thru my hair once it's in and don't even think about running your fingers through your hair! The dark spray comes off on your fingers. I kept forgetting and had to go scrub my fingers and finger nails each time I did it. I will never buy this product again.
Loved the smell but made my hair feel sticky and very dry.

I have used this brand before, disappointed in this one :(

Co-workers asked if I went tanning
SHuff from Dallas, TX
I do not use dry shampoo too often but I purchased this product hoping it would work out well, unfortunately it did not. I followed the instructions exactly and used very little product since I did not know how the brunette tint would work out. I also did not spray close to my face and made sure to protect my face just in case. After massaging the product into my scalp like the instructions say my fingers were brown so I washed my hands. I have now had the product in my hair for nearly 6 hours and I have wiped so much tint from my face. This last time I took pictures of the tissues, and that is just from the hairline of my face (not my actual hair). I work inside with AC at a desk, I'm worried the tint is going to come out on my face when I go to work out late. I like the formula but I cannot get over the tint. My co-workers were wondering if I had gone tanning!
LOVE this product!

I have thinning hair so not only does this spray keep my hair smelling fresh and clean but the brown masks my scalp in the areas that there is thinning hair. I've tried other products and this one is perfect, works amazingly and the price is right.
CLB from Elgin, IL
The feeling is tacky. I had a hard time running my fingers through it let alone brush it. Do yourself a favor and get the original.
stick to original
avery from atlanta
i LOVE this dry shampoo formula is godtier but i can have a pretty intense white cast so i decided to try this brunette version and it was a huge mistake. it's basically hair dye in spray form, my hands and forehead were STAINED brown and it was so hard to wash off. just use the original and really work out the product to remove the white cast
This is a horrible dry shampoo.
Beka from Salt Lake City Utah
This is the worst dry shampoo I have ever used. It makes your hair feel dirtier and the brown residue gets all over your face and hands.
Libby from Scottsdale
Probably won't buy again. Super expensive and has a very weird texture.
Not great but covers grays

Spray on grays
Stick to the original

I love the original Detox, but this formula is subpar. It is extremely runny during application, and tangled my hair more than it absorbed any oils. My scalp is also extremely itchy.
Dry Shampoo Root Touch Up in One!
Product Junkie from Syracuse, NY
I love the original Drybar dry shampoo but this is even better, especially if your a brunette. It keeps my hair looking great for days. It's a great root touch up between colorings. A little goes a long way and yes, you will have to rinse your hands off after you use it. But that is no big deal. I will never be without this product.
BEEEEEST Dry shampoo EVR!

I LOVE this product its AMAZING! Perfect color for Brunettes!
PThomas from Ringoes, NJ
I barely used the product once, and suffered with itchy scalp for 3 days (even after 2 washes). Makes hair super crusty, and dries out scalp.
Allee from Minneapolis, MN
I was disappointed in this product! In my hair it did an okay job as a dry shampoo, but it dyed EVERYTHING brown. It dyed brown all over the bathroom, up my nose, in my ears, my skin and hairline were extra dark. It sat in the wrinkles in my skin and I had to wipe everything down after. Every time I touched my hair it dyed my fingers and nails brown. I normally love Dry Bar products but I did not like this at all!
Rachael from CT
This stuff is like a can of 80s hairspray with a lot of wash out brown hair color thrown in. After using just a bit of this I can literally stick my hair straight up in the air and have it stay there. The color they put in it to make it brown gets absolutely everywhere and rubs off on everything. Definitely will not be getting this again. I do not recommend this to anyone. It's such a waste of money
Dry Shampoo adict from Utah
I hate washing, drying, and styling my hair, so tend to use quite a bit of dry shampoo. This stuff is awful. It may not leave a white cast, but the brown it leaves behind gets on everything. Everything. It has also wrecked my scalp. My head started itching almost immediately after I applied it the first time. Thinking it must be a fluke, I used it a few more times. Sure enough, the same thing happened. I've stopped using the product, but now have to figure out how to rehab my scalp. Don't buy it.
Melissa M from Kingston NY
Like the product for few minutes actually had in my hair but HATE the brown residue/color left on hair that made me shower ASAP to wash out so wasn't all over my body, face and clothes. Also used the travel size that was a lighter brown color and again a mess in my car and all over my clothes. Disappointed!
Sara from Washington
Bought this on a whim, and it was definitely a mistake. It smells amazing, but it makes my hair very stiff and gives a sticky feeling. It also doesn't soak up oil or get rid of shine like dry shampoo is supposed to do. It acted as sticky hair perfume. Definitely do not recommend!
makes my hair texture feel crunchy/stiff
Madison from Charlotte, NC
I bought this in store (along with the "restore" haircare kit by Living Proof) and the bottom line is: I was underwhelmed by it. I've heard of good things by the Drybar, and this is the first product I've purchased of their's. I'm a little off-put to buy something else. First: it leaves a reddish tint to my hair, and the dye is very visible on my scalp. I have cool-toned brown hair, so the dye is very noticeable. Then, the odor is unnatural smelling and strong. It was pleasant at first, but it became so overbearing anytime my hair would fall — and I'm sure there's got to be some not-so-great ingredients added for that "perfume." Lastly, it doesn't actually do what it promises: conceal oils the hair produces in between washes. I've tried a little amount, I've tried a lot. I have tried to experiment with this product to the best of my ability and to make my money spent worthwhile. It's very hard to work into your hair, while it promises to be lightweight. My hair is still just as oily, if not more, before using — just with splotchy, reddish dye and a strong odor.
Just Angie from Ohio
This is one of the few dry shampoo products that I have used that doesn't have "that smell". Love how it texturizes when I'm done styling, but, as with most dry shampoos, still leaves my hair feeling tangly after a while. I do love the fact that is has color to it that masks those pesky grays, instead of leaving a white residue on my hair. Overall, a great multitasking product.
This one is going back!
MDarling from Olathe KS
I have used Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo before, and I really like it. This time when I got to store, I saw the brunette one and decided to try it, since my only complaint about the regular one is the white residue that it leaves behind. I wish I had read the reviews before I bought it! Not even the cheapest brands I have tried before were as bad as this one. It made a mess, everything was dark brown, my hands, my forehead, my brush, the sink....and the hair felt so coarse and stiff, it seemed I had used hair spray. Awful!!! Next day the stiffness was still there, and when I washed my hair, the brown color could be seem going down the drain!
tay101 from Texas
I tried this for the first time a few days ago (Monday). On Sunday I washed my hair and then on Monday I sweated a little during the day so before bed I popped some of this in my hair..... BAD. IDEA. Whenever I touched my hair, STILL HOURS AFTER APPLYING, my hands were brown from the product. It felt like there was hairspray in my hair... and the worst part? WHEN I TOOK A BATH TUESDAY NIGHT MY BATH WATER WAS BROWN.... BROWN..!!!! from the dry shampoo. dont use. so nasty.
Forever Young from Austin
Gross grossssss gross. I used this for the first time today's and am returning it. It transferred color on my brush, my forehead, my hands. And it made my hair feel super coarse and tangly. I'd rather use the white one and deal with working it in than this one and I my hair feeling this coarse and sticky.
