Most Helpful Positive Review Best Dry Shampoo I've Ever Tried
I took my hair into sections spraying this product at the roots, let it dry like the directions said and then brushed it out. I have dark hair so it was a pleasant surprise that this product was not white like most dry shampoos. I don't know why other reviews say that it is sticky? Maybe they are applying to much and it's staying wet. It does exactly what it says! I love it and will continue to buy this dry shampoo!
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed
I am searching for the best dry shampoo and have tried several brands. I usually like Big Sexy hair products, but their dry shampoo was pretty disappointing. I put it in this morning after not having washed my hair since yesterday morning and my hair feels dirtier than it did before I put it in...When I put my hands through my hair, they come out with the product on them and my hair just feels sticky and coarse (it is usually silky-ish and relatively fine). It IS good for a solid bun that will stay in place...but I could never put my hair down after putting this in it.
Reviewed by 427 customers Gross Hair After Use
Sticky, clumpy hair from Sacramento
I have no idea why this product has high ratings. It makes my hair feel gross after using it. It's like trying to use hair spray as dry shampoo. Makes my hair feel sticky and doesn't allow my hair to move afterwards. I only gave it two stars because at least it smells good. I will never use this product again.
Hair feels gross after
tkj130130 from Dallas
Made my hair feel like it was heavy with build up. I tried spraying as far away as possible and brushing through afterwards but it was the same. Much better ones on the market
Best so far
Jess from Sac, Ca
I have very thin and oily hair. I have tried SOO many dry shampoos to count. This had been the BEST so far! I just spray a little at the roots, massage in, and use a fine toothed COMB to get out the roughness.
I saw an Emily wrote about it being "gritty" which is the roughness I experienced but the the fine comb it really helps smooth out that feeling.
My hair is definitely not as playable with when I have this produce in BUT my hair looks like first day washed hair!
My new favorite
Hot fuss from Los Angeles
It leaves no white cast in my hair and gives me a lot of volume. I have black thick hair and it has been great for me. I've tried living proof, igk andklhaven't been impressed. I will repurchase this .
Save your money
Mk from Harrisonburg, VA
I've been a longtime batiste dry shampoo user, but have never cared much to branch out asides from the Amika dry shampoo and the Orbie dry shampoo. After just trying this product , I followed all directions on third day and no heat hair (I have med-thick hair) and it somehow made it to my ends- leaving me with no more soft ends and my hair moves as it is one strand all together. I will be giving it another shot possibly, but save your money!! If you're looking for a high end dry shampoo I'd definitely recommend Oribe or Amika!!
A.meredith from Ramona, CA
I've tried every dry shampoo out there from drugstore to the more expensive ones . I just received that free 6 piece dry shampoo set deal they had a couple of weeks ago, and this one was in it . I have long thick hair that gets greasy really easy , but this stuff is amazing ! I think I'm on day 4 of no washing, and there's not weird build up , it doesn't weigh my hair down , and it still has volume ! Only negative I would say is that it makes my already dry hair even more dry , but I just reapply a hair serum to my ends to balance it out . Redken and Kiving Proof are also really great , but I'd say this one keeps me fresher longer

To start off, I have burgundy hair. After spraying this on, my hair was flaky after brushing and shaking, made my scalp feel dirty, stiff, and the scent is gross.
YIKES!!!! Smells like gasoline & Burnt toast
B.Paris from Charlotte, NC
When I need volume at the roots, Sexy Hair usually has the strongest "big hair" formulas and is my staple "go-to." I tried this one and it smelled like gasoline or a very strong chemical smell. Also, DO NOT put any heat on your hair with this EVER. All I did was blow dry my roots as usual using my fingers to spread the product, and when I washed my hair the water brought out a burnt toast smell. Thinking maybe it was my cooking that night (LOL), I gave it one more shot, same process. Same gasoline and burnt toast smell. I mean, I get liking big hair with a big formula, but this is taking it too far. I'll go back to their texture powder which I LOVE.
This is the one!
Angiec13 from WI
I have tried so many different dry shampoos and I always come back to this one. My hair gets extremely oily on day 2, so I have to dry shampoo it and throw it in a ponytail that second day. This dry shampoo makes my hair look clean and gives it the volume it normally looses when it is weighed down by oil.
Best Dry Shampoo to get VOLUME
Emily516 from Maryland
This dry shampoo will absorb oil and give you amazing volume at the roots. It does make your hair a bit "gritty" so if you want smooth shiny roots this is not for you. But if you want that bombshell look, this will not disappoint. Also, no white residue AT ALL. I've been using this stuff for years and will keep using FOREVER:)
Cindy from Kansas
could not stand the feel of my hair after using this. my hair felt dirtier than before I used this product. stick to ouia.
Nice, but unnecessarily expensive
M from Kcmo
Great stuff but a little pricey. Nice when it was in sample kit. Needed it for hospital.
Liv from Charleston, SC
Does not do a good job of making my hair look less greasy. Also, it makes my hair feel coarse and sticky.
My favorite dry shampoo
Long haired woman from Ohio
I have been using this dry shampoo for 5-6 yrs. I love it. I stock up on it when it's on sale so it bring the cost down per bottle.
gina from IN
will not buy again the spray is so strong not matter how far i spray will make me cough real bad ,maybe got a bad bottle but will never buy again
JaneyC from Texas
I like the volume from this dry shampoo but it's just not worth the price.
the most amazing formula ever
karenrose from virginia
this formula is AMAZING for those of us who have thinner hair and oily scalps. It also adds texture so i sometimes use it on freshly washed hair. A little goes a long way. I have a feeling the negative reviews are from people who have thick hair and used too much product. I could see how this could dry out someone's hair if they are not naturally oily.
Best Dry Shampoo
Whitney from Wellington, FL
I have been using this dry shampoo for years! Every time I try a different one I wish I was back to this one. I love that it gives my hair lift and texture instead of just making it look clean. I use it every time I need that little refresher and sometimes just for the texture and volume it creates!
Bought by mistake (wanted chi dry shampoo)
K from California
The picture (online) looked so much like the Chi dry shampoo that I normally purchase, and I didn't realize it was another brand until I used it. (I did note the bottle size was smaller when I unpacked it, but thought it would be a good travel size). However, I was very disappointed when I used it because of the way my hair felt. It wasn't soft anymore. The spray left a residue that made it feel kind of tacky. It did smell nice and technically it works I guess. I plan to keep it for my bag, but won't buy it again
I won't buy anything else.
MRM from WI
This is definitely a high level dry shampoo---I don't think those with hair that isn't too oily or those who don't want texture added will enjoy. For those of us that are literal grease buckets though (it keeps my skin looking young at least!) this stuff is a godsend. Most dry shampoos sort of "die out" on my hair quickly, and I just look greasy again a few hours later. Not with this. It adds volume , helps me style, and soaks up every spot of oil in my hair. It holds up throughout the day, even in high humidity.
I have found if you spray too close to the root, you will get the gritty texture others mention. I actually prefer this as it helps to hold my hair in place, but for those who don't want the texture, just spray farther away and brush out with a thicker bristle.
In summary---I am in love with this dry shampoo.
Won't buy again
Jamie from Tennessee
I bought this product in stiller because I've been searching for a dry shampoo without a strong, perfumey (scent allergies) smell. I used it several times and each time, it caused these huge flakes to develop on my scalp where I sprayed it. It's too bad because I love the smell. 😕
Rhianna from Fond du Lac, WI
I was excited to use this because I love Big Sexy Hair's powder play, heat protectant, and hairspray. The Big Sexy Hair Dry Shampoo? Not so much. Another reviewer commented that their hair felt dirtier than before they used this and I agree. This makes my hair sticky/hard to manage and is nearly impossible to tease after letting the dry shampoo sit for 2 minutes (as according to the directions). I like the smell, but that's about it. I am an avid dry shampoo user and this is at the bottom of my list - will only use this in a pinch or on my last day before washing.
Absorbs oil, adds volume, smells good, no residue
Michelle from Pennsylvania
I have brown, thin hair that gets greasy pretty easily. It is my favorite dry shampoo. I have been using it for nearly 10 years and have tried other brands like Kenra (pretty good as well), tresseme, batiste, and Joico. Nothing compares to "sexy hair" brand dry shampoo- it does not discolor my hair, people compliment me on the smell, and as an additional bonus adds volume(sometimes I use it only to add body to my roots). I only wish the bottles came larger so I didn't have to buy them so frequently.
Similar to spray glue
Jess from Utah
Do not get this if you don't want to add a lot of texture to your hair. I do have thick hair and this really would be the equivalent to spraying glue in it. I can barely brush through it after and that's with only applying a little.
not my favorite from this line
nessa from NE
left my hair really gritty.
