Most Helpful Positive Review great
my go to dry shampoo was batiste so I was hesitant to try this one since it costs a tad bit more and there's less product but I'm glad I bought it cause I only need the tiniest bit for it to do the trick plus it smells like a freshly baked cookie. I love it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't work for me
The smell does remind of a bakery, just a bit overpowering if you use a bit much, like for those with longer hair such as myself. I tried it out and it does well, but it needs more to be as effective as other brands like Batiste and so on. It didn't leave white in my hair at all, something I really appreciate, but so expensive for a little bottle that only lasts me a week? Not worth that much money. If the price lowered then maybe it wouldn't be so bad, I just can't afford to use as much as I need, even with very fine hair.

It does provide volume, but I did see a little frizz! My hair is somewhat fine, so for others it may work differently! Smells sweet! It's definitely my backup!
Absolutely love this stuff!
Terri from Wisconsin
I have thin hair so it gets oily fast. This is the only dry shampoo that didnt make my head itch. It does as it's intended to do. I spray it on rub it into my roots then brush through. The smell is strong but it does smell like cake batter so it could be worse. I have reordered this multiple times now and will continue. Absolutely Love it!
doesnt absorb the grease
pp the poo from Jacksonville FL
I got this product and I feel like it didnt really absorb the grease. it felt like just a layer of corn scratch on my hair with alot of fragrance. and the nozzle is REALLY powerful.
Works better than others I've tried!
Britt from TN
This product leaves my hair feeling fantastic but to me it stinks! You can for sure smell the corn starch.
Love this smell and this dry shampoo
angie from Tulsa ok
I dont know why everyone is writing saying it smells awful this stuff smells awesome. It smells like vanilla cake. I have tried alot alot of dry shampoo from high end to the lowest and the smell of this stuff is what has drawn me to it the most. Plus its a good dry shampoo one of the beat ive tried. Plan on continue buying!
But does it work...
Mom from Alabama
So like everyone says, the smell isn't good. From other reviews, I was expecting like a perm smell or something. While it is stinky, it's not TOO terrible and I can overlook it. It's not a strong smell in my opinion and after a few minutes the smell is gone anyway. It does not leave white residue on my hair and it did add some volume. I have super oily hair and so far it's held up the 10 hours I've had it in my hair. If they'd work on the smell, this would be a 5 star product.
The scent is scary..
Jess from Florida
I saw the reviews that referred to the scent and I dismissed them as not everyone enjoys certain fragrances. Well, I just put this stuff in my hair and I'm horrified. The smell is something I've never experienced before. I suspect the sort of smell after encountering a skunk. Also didn't volumize. Big oof.
This product does not work
T from Oakland, CA
Not only does this product not work, it makes my hair greasier. I truly do not understand. Every single time I've used it, whether applying less or more, shaking hair out, brushing it, or doing nothing, my hair has felt and looked greasier???
Christa from Piedmont, sc
I couldn't use it so I don't know if it works or not. After a couple sprays I decided it was not something I wanted to smell like.
Great Formula, Horrible Scent
Meg from Pennsylvania
I really love the volume this gives, while not being too heavy or leaving a gross residue. My only complaint is that it smells spicy like eggnog or chai and is strong so I can literally smell it on my hair all day long. From a brand like Cake, would be nice if it were vanilla or cake scented, or even strawberry or something would be better than this overbearing scent.
Could be improved
Amy W from Dayton OH
I love the way this dry shampoo works. It leaves my hair fresh, it's not heavy, and I don't see any white residue. The smell is fairly chemical though and for a brand named Cake, I wasn't expecting this. If it had a nice smell, this would be my new go to over Batiste, so that's a shame
Cindy from Gainesville
Great dry shampoo! Love it!
Vicky from Buffalo, NY
I received a trial size in my Ipsy bag, and I've always loved dry shampoo, but never found a good one. This dry shampoo is amazing, it smells sooo good and adds volume while actually taking the greasiness out of my hair. I'm really blown away. I came to this site immediately to buy the full size!
Best dry shampoo ever!
Darcie23 from Columbus OH
Hands down the best dry shampoo I have ever used. Smells fantastic and makes my hair feel great!
Shirl831 from Eastern NC
I've never tried a dry shampoo in my life! I got a sample can in my Ipsy bag and decided to try it. I love the smell but most of all I love how it makes my hair feel. I'm a fan! I'm so glad Cake was my "first".
ashton from Fort Wayne, Indiana
i received this product in my ipsy bag. i struggle with dry shampoo because i feel it is sort of gimmicky. i have tried high end and drugstore brands of dry shampoo but all have left a white residue on my hair (i am blonde) and leave a nasty texture. when i tried this out i was amazed. i have never tried a dry shampoo product that has actually worked this well. the scent although different is not as bad as the reviews on here say, and it does not linger. if you are really interested in trying this i highly suggest going for it. it worked better than anything i have ever tried.
Shipping Is Insane
lotti from Michigan
Product is Amazing but can only buy it on line and shipping is too high!
Great Volume, Awful Smell
LRAJ from RI
I loved the volume it gave me. However, I could not breathe after using it because the smell is awful. The best I could compare it to is the stale smell clothes have after being near a campfire, mixed with a chemical-type smell. I was disappointed by that because all the other products seem to smell amazing. Definitely not finishing the can & im going back to what I normally use.
Terrible smells like CORN

Smells like CORN gross
Canross89 from Not available
1st of all it smells so bad I don't even want to use it. It's alright, but for the price I expected more. Works about the same as cheaper brands. Wasn't overly impressed.

I love it. I especially love the smell!
Brittany from Not available
This stuff works great! It easily brushes through your hair and gives volume. I am in love with this product!
Best one I found so far that works for me!!!
Miacyalater from San Antonio, TX
I found out of all the dry shampoo that I have tried, Cake seems to work the best. Nice smell, works great for those with thin hair, doesn't leave a powder residue. Not oily in the least. I have purchased this product at least 4x. I love this one because it works so well with my thin hair and adds great volume!!
Bonnie C. from Not available
I love this product!! The smell is amazing and it makes my hair feel and look clean, while adding volume.
Kaleigh W. from Not available
I've been using Cake dry shampoos for years, and their products are absolutely amazing! They really work, and I love that they offer dry shampoo for darker hair. It doesn't leave white residue. This was my first time using the 'Do Gooder Volumizing Dry Shampoo', and I absolutely love it! The spray bottle format it comes in makes for an easy, no mess application compared to the shaker bottle one I usually use (but both are great). I also love how much volume my hair has, and how long the volume lasts! I will definitely be buying this product again. The only downside and the reason why I only gave 4/5 stars was because my bottle is already empty after two weeks of using it every couple of days. I must've received a dud bottle :broken_heart:
