I would not buy this product for oily hair purposes.

Comments about Chi Dry Shampoo:

I've used this product and I have oily hair, so I buy dry shampoo. But this product does not help with oily hair like other products do. If you want something to help with oily hair then you're better off with a different product. I've noticed the ones that do leave a temporary white residue help with this.

Best dry shampoo I've ever used

By Rins

About Me Beauty Conscious

Pros

  • Adds Volume
  • Cleans Thoroughly
  • Great Smell

Cons

    • Curly Hair
    • Daily Use

    Comments about Chi Dry Shampoo:

    I've tried so many dry shampoos (Oribe, Living Proof, Amika, Aveeno, Batiste, Dry Bar - you name it!) and this is hands down my favorite. There is zero color (white or otherwise) to it, and it absorbs the oils in your hair like nothing else I've used before. Plus, it has that traditional Chi scent to it which helps when you're trying to really stretch out washes. I have fine hair that can get greasy fast, and this has seriously helped me go about 3 days without washing, without the gross, chalky buildup that other dry shampoos can leave behind after a couple days of use. Gives volume too... try it!!

      Comments about Chi Dry Shampoo:

      I've tried so many dry shampoos, but this is by far the best one. I have red hair so I try not to wash my hair too often and I also have oily hair (the struggle is real) and I can usually use this 3-4 days and my hair doesn't look nasty. There is also NO COLOR to this, which is amazing.

          The bottle didn't hold up. Didn't even have it a week and it stopped spraying. I thought it was clogged, not the case. My husband even took off the cap and checked and nothing was clogged it just wouldn't spray.

          Not great for very oily hair

          from Montana

            Comments about Chi Dry Shampoo:

            It smells great and it doesn't leave the powdery residue that some dry shampoos but it also doesn't work on really oily hair. I have very oily hair, like I need to shower everyday or I feel gross. I have to use a ton of this product to even reduce the oiliness and then I feel the need to reapply every couple hours to combat the return of the oiliness. Probably works great on less oily hair

                  Comments about Chi Dry Shampoo:

                  I purchased this product two times and both times I had to return the product.
                  It would spray well for a few time but then something happened to the nozzle and it wouldn't work.
                  I'm guessing it probably due to a poor design or design flaw.
                  The product itself is great but it's useless when you can't get it out of the can.
                  I will most likely not purchase the CHI Dry shampoo unless they change the design of the spray nozzle.

                    I try to wash my hair every other day to keep it healthy. I have thicker, darker hair, so it's hard to find a dry shampoo that keeps the volume alive, but dries clear so I don't look like I dumped baby powder on my head. This does that exactly. Furthermore, it smells AMAZING!
