Most Helpful Positive Review The Best Dry Shampoo of Them All
Let me preface by saying that I'm more of a review-reader than review-writer. For real, I read product reviews before I go to sleep at night. Some people read a book, I read reviews; that's just the way I roll. This all said, I had to finally break the chain and write about this dry shampoo because it literally changed my hair. I've tried them all, and I thought the Living Proof PhD was going to be my winner, but boy were the tables turned on me. I watched Jamie Genevieve promo this in one of her latest videos and I was immediately interested because we'd just gotten shipment of IGK. Without any hesitation I picked this up and I. Was. FLOORED. I have dark rooted balayage hair. My hair is dry yet oily at the root (always) as well as fine. First of all, this dry shampoo leaves NO WHITE RESIDUE. It literally does clean my hair and give it volume. I use small amounts and it goes such a long way. For a test, I tried to see how long it would extend the time between washes. Seven days later and my hair still was manageable, not crusty and gross like some leave my hair feeling after a few days. Trust me when I say nothing else can do what this product does. If there is any hair product you MUST pick up, it's this. Do it now. Run.
Most Helpful Critical Review Over rated, drugstore brands are better
I read so many rave reviews about this product so I had high expectations. I have pretty thick hair that doesn't get super oily or greasy, but mine was due for a wash, so I tried out the IGK dry shampoo. It felt like I was adding thick heavy product into my hair. My hair did not look or feel any cleaner; but felt like I had a ton of gunk in it. I've used MANY dry shampoos- Not Your Mother's Plump for Joy, Tresemme Volumizing, Kenra Volumizing, Klorane.. all of those were light years better than this. I don't like the feeling of weight added into my hair from a dry shampoo. A little powdery is fine, but this product was horrible. And my hair was even greasier the next day.
Save your money and get literally any other dry shampoo.

This the BEST dry shampoo, I have ever found. I have tried so many and they all left my hair with a white coat, heavy hair, and oily hair within a few hours. IGK First Class Charcoal works wonder on my oily scalp. I go five days without washing my hair with this dry shampoo, which in the long run preserves my colored-hair. Definitely have to try!!
Oily scalp no more
Nattynat from South Carolina
I have always struggled to find a dry shampoo that actually absorbs the oil. I have tried amika, not your mothers, and plenty more. This gets the oil and keeps its away! The fragrance is too strong, but it does the job and that's what I mostly care about. I spray in in sections and let it sit for a few minutes then scrub into my hair.
Works well but had a bad reaction
Sabrina from Iowa
This product definitely works like a dry shampoo does. However, I'm never sensitive to products but had a really bad reaction to it. My scalp and hairline broke out like I've never seen before.
The only one I'll use
Rabia from CA
This dry shampoo is absolutely amazing! It works perfect for my dark hair, absorbs completely, and leaves my hair looking matte and not greasy at all. I'm shocked that I actually like a dry shampoo! The other ones have never completely absorbed oil at my roots or leave a white cast in my hair. Not this one! I got a mini size as a free sample but I'm definitely buying the full size and recommending to everyone I know!
Carmen P from Florida
I have tried a few dry shampoos before, but this is the first one that I've ever felt actually made my hair look clean. I get super oily roots if I skip shampooing for a day. I have been taking advantage of working from home to skip shampooing for several days to try to acclimate my scalp to it and hopefully be able to skip at least 1 day in the future. I got this product in one of my beauty subscription boxes, and I have used it a few times when something comes up where I have to leave the house without time to wash my hair. I have been super impressed with how well it degreases my hair. My only complaint is that it does leave quite a build up in my hair and on my scalp. It also makes my hair harder to brush, almost like I'm trying to brush straw or like my hair is glued together. Lol. I don't know how to describe it except to say it is a bit unpleasant.
That said, it does take the grease away (even after several days of no shampooing) and makes my hair look presentable. I just definitely have to wash the next day to get rid of the build up.
Amazing dry shampoo!
Jen from Lake Elsinore
The very first dry shampoo I used was years ago and I hated it. Left my hair white stiff and gross. I never used any again. But I've been getting tired of my oily scalp so based upon reviews this dry shampoo caught my attention and I'm so glad I bought it!!! It's so amazing how quickly my oily scalp and roots looked dry and non greasy right away. I'm definitely happy with this product and will be purchasing again!
This is the one!
Eve from California
Finally can say I found THE best dry shampoo. It literally soaks up the sweat from my hair right after a workout. It will leave it dry, not sticky, full of volume and looking even better than it did before the workout. Unreal. I will forever keep buying this.
Best Dry Shampoo I've Ever Used!
Brit from CA
I've tried so many dry shampoos and almost have up. I've always had an issue with an oily scalp so most dry shampoos couldn't absorb it all and I'd be left with greasy looking hair. I do leave this dry shampoo on a little longer before working it into my hair. But omg! It does wonders on my scalp!
Tiabadia from Salt Lake City, UT
I bought this on a whim for my greasy hair. Seriously I can't go more than two days without washing my hair. This is a miracle! I can use it and it'll keep me wash free for another 2 to 3 days. It doesn't turn my hair white like a lot of other dry shampoos have. The only complaint I have is that I personally don't like the smell. It's not terrible, just not the scent for me. I have tried so many dry shampoos but after using this one I'll stick with it for good.
So little goes so far with this, it lasts forever!
Ashley from Flint, MI
I just bought a second bottle of this. It's expensive (in my opinion) but lasts for a very long time because you just need a quick dusting of it and you're good.
don't buy this unless u hate yourself
sarah from Houston, TX
I wish I never bought this. I used it once and 1. I had to use a lot for it do anything, 2. It gave me the worst breakage I've ever had bc this dry shampoo is so drying. don't buy it besties
aweste03 from Michigan
I used this 1 time. Made my hair feel disgusting and tangled. Had to wash my hair which defeats the purpose.
Works and smells amazing
TO from Thousand oaks
I use this on my curly hair when I need to extend my wash day. It works well and doesn't weigh down my curls.
Amy P from Milton, PA
I am not an all the time dry shampoo user. In fact i used it so rarely because i hated the feeling in my hair. Always felt heavy and made my hair feel dirtier. Tried this and it is amazing. It really does a good job absorbing oils. It smells yummy. Ans my hair did not feel weighed down or more dirty. Left my hair soft and smelling good. Also, you do need fo let it sit for the 30 seconds and then massage product in. If you dont your hair will feel gross.
Chris from Missouri
This is by far my favorite dry shampoo!!! I always have this on hand.
smells like bug spray
admo from texas
will not buy again. hair still looks oily and the smell is very potent and heavy.
Best dry shampoo
Heather from Salt Lake City
Full disclosure: my biggest issue with most dry shampoos is the scent (for example living proof works great but smells horrible to me, so I won't use it). IGK is finally a scent I can not only tolerate but somewhat enjoy, it reminds me of a unisex perfume. It's definitely a strong scent so if you don't like that or dislike the alcohol-based, propane/butane powered spray bottle you might be better off with a more natural option. All of that being said, this dry shampoo works very well. Absorbs oil quickly and adds volume, everything you could want! I will repurchase.
Works so well in fine, blonde hair!
Janie from Kansas City, MO
I really love this product! I was wanting to try something more high end than batiste or not your mother and this was what I went for. I have lots of fine blonde hair that shows all products! This gave me lots of volume at the root and wonderful texture! I highly recommend!
Emma from WI
This is the one dry shampoo I've used where I can wear my hair down and not look greasy. I have fine hair so oil is very easily seen. But not with this. Plus is adds volume to my hair.
Most Effective Dry Shampoo I've Tried
PhillyFoxy from Philadelphia PA
This is one of the few dry shampoos that gets rid of the grease in my hair (and I have lots of hair). I find I don't need to use nearly as much as I think either. Upon first spray it does leave a light gray cast, but once you work it into your scalp after the couple minutes it disappears.
Jenn C from Alabama
I've tried several dry shampoos and this is the very first one that doesn't just make my hair dirtier. I'm obsessed with the way it smells too
Works so well, but strong scent
Emily from Chicago
This dry shampoo works sooo well, but if you're sensitive to strong smells or perfumes I would not recommend. The smell lingers in my room for hours! It does make your hair smell super nice though and takes the oil out.
Best Dry Shampoo
Sweetmarmar from North Carolina
My favorite dry shampoo. I'm currently on my second bottle and love how volumizing it is. It is perfect for fine hair and I will continue to buy it. I think it is much better than the Living proof and Drybar Dry shampoos.
Leaves hair very dry and the smell is overpowering
Chloe from Midwest
I have oily hair, I thought this would be great! Wow! It leaves my hair feeling awful, has a residue, and the smell is not for me! I've tried using different amounts (a little goes a long way) but have the same results, plus it's pricy! Not for me
the smell is my favourite part
kaitlyn from san diego
it's an alright dry shampoo, can get a white cast if you use too much. the 5 stars? because of the smell.
i went to seattle with my sister in 2018 and our hotel room smelled just like this. i hoard these bottles to sniff when i remember the fun i had while in seattle with her. i wish i knew what the smell is so i could buy a candle or something. the smell lingers in my hair and it brings me immense joy.
