Most Helpful Positive Review Lightweight Volumizing Powder
I love dry shampoo powders even more than aerosol dry shampoo. The powders have become a staple in my haircare routine to lend volume and texture to my thin long hair. To use ds powder properly and avoid visible residue, lift up each small section of hair and tap some of the powder on the underside of your roots. Then use your fingers to lightly "zuzz" or gently work in the powder to better distribute throughout your hair. You can then start controlling where pieces go a bit better now that the hair has texture, grip, and volume.
While I wish that this powder gave a bit more volume, I do notice a distinct difference from other powders that I'm quite happy about. Many other dry shampoo powders I've used weigh the hair down, and almost leave a sticky heavy film coating. By the second day of having usual dry shampoo powder in my hair, my hair feels gross. I'm on day 2 of the Redken one and am impressed. It is still lightly absorbing oil and giving me a little volume. It's not sticky at all.
Like I said, I wish the powder gave more volume, which is why I'm giving it 4 stars. Otherwise, its a pretty solid product and there's a lot in the bottle!
I received this product for free to test.
Most Helpful Critical Review Kind of liked it
I kind of didn't like this product. Not because it didn't really work because it did get rid of the greatness I had in my hair and it did make my hair feel softer and nice. But I didn't like this product because of the small white flakey dust stuff it left in my hair. Obviously This is a dry shampoo powder and the directions said to brush out the rest and I did!. However there were still that white powder stuff in my hair and it was kind of annoying. I brushed it and shook my hair with my hands and it still seemed to be there. I don't know I might not have done it right? Other than that it is a good product it made my hair not greasy and made it felt nice I just didn't like the left over residue. I received this product complimentary to test and give my honest review! Might try again if I watch a video or try a different way.
Reviewed by 233 customers Great if you have fragrance or chemical allergies
CTau from Indiana
I have several chemical and fragrance allergies making hair styling products a challenge. This dry shampoo powder is the only one on my "allowed" list and does a great job. It absorbs the oil, leaves my hair soft. I have red hair and it doesn't leave any dark residue. You do have to be careful to lightly distribute the product and then rub and brush the hair before styling. One bottle lasted about 15-20 applications. Be careful not to apply too much to an area or it will leave the scalp looking gray or powdery.
I would love if there was a spray bottle for powder application.

I've used MANY dry shampoos, but this is my favorite. Over the corona closures, I "trained" my shoulder length fine hair to go 2-3 days without washing thanks to this. I think the powder is much more effective at soaking up oil and there is no residue. I'm a medium brunette, and there is no white cast. I found it works even better if you sleep in it. Hope they can improve the shaker on the bottle, but I suggest putting it on your hands first.

I love how it has non scent and blends well. But unfortunately the bottle I received was half full so I have to get a replacement bottle.
Amazing for a powder
Tracy from Milwaukee, WI
Way to go Redken for not adding perfume to this! This is a great product for home or traveling especially flying since it's a powder no having to try squeezing it into the quart size bag. It absorbs oil and smell without feeling heavy.
Map from AH, IL
Not sure. As it is a powder and not a spray takes getting used too. What I don't like is that if u get an itch... leaves gunk under ur nails. But it does the job
Almost no odor
Lexi from San Jose, CA
One of the few dry shampoos that doesn't have perfume or a strong fragrance added. It's definitely better if you have lighter hair since it will show up white ish on darker hair. I throw it on before bed and wake up to non-sticky hair that has some extra volume and a little shine.
The bottle could use some work for better/easier application - it tends to dump a lot out per shake, so I'd suggest shaking it into your hands first and starting with a little at a time since it goes a long way.
I not like it
AndreaDJB from Miami, Fl
This product is in powder presentation. It looks like talcum powder. I do not like it, because it is white and leaves a lot of residue in the hair after applying it, and it is a bit difficult to remove. I do not recommend it. I received these products complimentary for testing purpose.
Messy but does the job
Trisha M from White Deer, PA
It makes a mess if you're not careful, but does the job.
Works, but has it's downfalls.
LuvJewel from Canton, IL
This powder dry shampoo does it's job, but can leave a dirty looking residue under your fingernails if you have your hand in your hair at all during the day. A little definitely goes a long way. I have shoulder length, thick hair and it does not take a lot to achieve a soft wavy look. I did receive this product for free as part of a promotion. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Christina from Akron, Oh
I love this dry shampoo. It has completely taken over my top slot from batiste. No more aerosol for me I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Not as gritty as powder grip
Cwoj from San Diego
Great dry shampoo! It worked best for me to sort of "poof" it onto my hair with a gentle tap. Worked well and added a little hold. This would be a great product if you have used powder grip in the past and found it a little too strong!
Perfect dry shampoo!
bwagner from Iowa
I received this product for free to sample and review. I've used many dry shampoos in the past, but I love this powder! It does an awesome job of reducing shine, but doesn't leave excessive residue. I would definitely recommend!
Kat from Kentucky
I have super oily hair so this was great! Didnt leave any residue look
Not for me
Em from Detroit, MI
Not a fan of this powder. Kind of difficult and messy to use. I would much rather use a spray dry shampoo
Carb from Gr
I think this is a good product I just don't like the packaging that it comes in. It is not easy to spread on my hair. It is a shake bottle so it seems to come out in clumps and almost make my hair look great. Otherwise the actual product itself is good and I would recommend this to a friend.
Matz from Las Vegas, NV
It make take a second to get use to using this product but once you get it down, you'll love it! I love the volume it gave me and how it took the oily shine out of my hair without giving it a white/grey cast that other dry shampoos can give. I also have medium/dark blonde hair so if you have darker hair, be cautious.
Sarah from OH
This worked as well as other dry shampoo powders I've used. It might work a little better if there was a better top than just the one hole. I received this product for testing purposes.
Indifferent on the powder
Cassan from Bedford, IN
I had never used a powder dry shampoo before. Getting it out of the bottle was a little difficult. I felt the bottle should have been more reflective of a baby powder spout. I felt I had to do a lot more rubbing in to hide the white powder than I do with the aerosol options. I also have dark roots. All and all it worked as a dry shampoo and was very effective in making my day old hair look freshly washed!
SFMom816 from Pittsburgh PA
I am so in love with this Redken Dry Shampoo Powder! As every girl knows, we don't have time to wash and style our hair every single morning! Thanks to this new powder from Redken, we don't have to! I just rub some of this powder into my roots and my hair looks amazing all day long! I love that it doesn't make my hair stiff like other prouducts! I have received so many complaints after using this product, this is definitely my do to dry shampoo from here on out!! I was fortunate to receive a sample bottle from Redken for testing and reviewing!
Cait from Athens, Ga
I love this powder!! It doesn't have a scent and is very effective at absorbing oil and giving light airy volume to next day hair. Sprinkle a little on your roots, rub it in ,and you're good to go!
Hbishop17 from Ohio
I like that this dry shampoo powder has no smell. It made my hair feel cleaner while adding texture and some volume. I will definitely continue to use it and might consider getting it again in the future. I received this product free for testing.
Works, but messy to use
Erin from Chuckey TN
I usually love dry shampoos, but the application of this powder is too messy for it to be practical. The powder is heavy and it's hard to distribute it evenly. It leaves a white residue on dark hair, and does not work as well as other brands I've tried. I received this product free for testing purposes.
Use when traveling
Sumsum from Floyd, Va
As happy to receive this complimentary right before the holidays. Long travel hours caused my hair to lack attention. This was a nice quick fix and I didn't look too grungy at the rest stops because of it!
Works very well!
Michelle from Columbus, OH
This product worked well. It I felt like I used a decent amount. I have thick hair and it seemed to look oily after using. Not in all areas but just parts of my head. After applying more product it looked a little better. I also felt like my hair looked lighter in color because the powder is white.
A great dry shampoo
ChristiB from Illinois
Although I was hesitent about trying this loose powder since I'm used to an aerosol type of dry shampoo, I ended up LOVING this product. I received this product complimentary for test purposes, but I would have totally gone for this by myself and will more than likely use this as my go-to dry shampoo after I run out. I have super thin hair that gets oily quick, and this does the trick!
