Rated 4.12 out of 5 stars
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.
I really love how this cleans greasy hair but it's definitely not color safe. I've used it on my hot pink dyed hair (professionally done with Pulp Riot dye) and within a few days the color has faded. I go about 5-7 days between washes and use color safe shampoo on wash days as well as color deposit conditioner. I can see my hot pink fading between days 3-7 when using this dry shampoo. It really is disappointing because it's the only dry shampoo that really leaves my hair feeling clean after using. If I didn't have colored hair I would absolutely use it.

I really do love this product so much! I wish I knew about it sooner.

I have really oily hair. I can wash my hair and within less than 24 hours I'm already oily again. I work 4-5 12hr shifts a week so washing my hair daily isn't always an option nor is it healthy for it. This dry shampoo has been a lifesaver! It absorbs all the oil, makes my hair look and smell clean, doesn't leave white residue on my dark hair and allows me to go at least 3 days or more without washing my hair. I highly recommend this dry shampoo!
Lastly, my hair is color treated and this dry shampoo has not caused any fading to or issues with my color.
Just buy it!

This dry shampoo made my hair feel so dry and brittle and stiff. I even shampooed twice to get it out and i swear i can still feel it in my scalp. save your money on this product, it's awful
Melanie from Johnstown Pa
I have tried so many dry shampoo's and this is the only one that impressed me so far. I keep coming back to this one. It's perfect. Doesn't dry my hair out (because I do have an oily scalp) blends into my black hair after I rub it in, and gives me volume without the stickiness. Keep in mind, this is a Charcoal dry shampoo before purchasing. Charcoal is great for detoxifying and pulling impurities out. If you have a dry scalp I wouldn't reccomend. I love this stuff and when I try a different brand of dry shampoo, I miss this one, and immediately repurchase. It's pricey, but well worth it!

My daughter told me about this dry shampoo. I love the smell and it works great.

This feels like I loaded hairspray on my scalp.. not worth it.
TammyD from Los Angeles, CA
This is the first dry shampoo I've found that really works on my hair. It adds volume and renews my hair for days after I shampoo. The smell leaves it feeling like a fresh styling when I'm done. I wish it was a little less expensive because I find that I use it regularly. I would definitely recommend for anyone with oily hair.
Sara from Pasadena, MD
By far my favorite dry shampoo!! I've tried several different brands and this one stands far above the rest! Smells fresh but not overpowering. The "Clean" look even lasts into a second day. Worth the extra $$!
Joyce from Tampa, FL
I have tried so many high end & drugstore dry shampoos, and this the best one for oily hair days & the can lasts longer than any other brand! You will need to use a clarifying/scrubbing shampoo once in awhile if you use it several days in a row tho.
Hollywood from tupelo,ms
this dry shampoo not only leaves your hair feeling clean, full of volume, and it smells amazing!!
Laur from Allentown, PA
I have fine thin hair and extensions that I can't wash every day. I feel like I have tried every dry shampoo on the market. Most recently I tried Batiste that completely dried out my extensions beyond belief. This dry shampoo I can use minimally, smells good, and dries up my oily scalp. I have hair that gets oily very quickly and a little bit goes a long way. My hair doesn't feel like straw, but the smell is strong, so I can understand how that could be a turnoff. For people with fine oily hair, this is a must have!
M from Seattle
The price is kind of steep but this is the most effective dry shampoo I've found. I have fine thin hair that is very prone to oiliness and this is the best, quick way to overcome it. Adds body/volume and the grey color of the spray is nice for dark hair, no visible residue.
Peyton from Fort Worth tx
This dry shampoo is good, soaks up oil and makes my hair look freshly washed. However when I first put it in my hair feels very stiff and crunchy. Once I let it sit and brush it through it's usually fine and makes my hair looks brand new.
Cassie from Michigan
This is the only dry shampoo that actually soaks up oil and doesn't make my scalp so dry that it flakes. I love it!
MariMar from Bay Area, Ca
I really wanted to like this but it did leave a white residue on my hair. Also being that it has charcoal in it I sprayed some on my sink to see what color was coming out of the bottle and it was a gray color! Good thing I got the small travel size bottle to try it out. I'm also not too fond of the smell. Unfortunately I won't be buying this dry shampoo going forward.
Jen from Maryland
This is seriously the best ever & I've tried A LOT. I have really long, thick hair that gets greasy easy and I can get 5 days out of a wash w/ this. I also get compliments all the time on how good my hair smells! 10/10 highly recommended!
Lupita from Phoenix Arizona
I have been looking for a good dry shampoo Meredith our hair stylist recommended it to me and it's seriously amazing
Cynthia from Austin, Tx
I've tried every brand of dry shampoo and this is THE best because it works great #1, plus it smells great and best, it leaves no white residue and dries instantly.
amy from Altoona, pa
Fine thin hair. Product left build up on my scalp and did not make my hair feel clean after felt and looked greasy. Will be going back to my heritage dry shampoo for brunettes.
Ana G from Houston, tx
I saw this dry shampoo on Tik tok and was intrigued bc of the santal 33 ish smell and it's performance. The girl raved about it and I was sold. By day 3 my hair is as oily as the Middle East and I was looking for an alternative option that would allow we me to go more than 3 days without washing it…. This is not it. It leaves my hair rough, dull, and dry. Yes it removes the oil but it's more of a oil remover texture/hair spray, just looks dirty IMO (I have jet black hair, shine is extremely important). For the price I'm better off with batiste.
Hales from NC
I have tried 12 dry shampoos. None come CLOSE. This dry shampoo goes on so nicely, a little DOES go a long way. I spray my hair in sections let it dry for a minute and then flip my hair and massage it in. The finish is so powdery and soft (unlike those ones that make your scalp feel sandy) ,and the volume is amazing (coming from someone with flat hair.) The smell isn't strong and it's not my favorite but definitely doesn't give me a headache. Overall 10/10
Leah from Los Angeles, CA
I LOVEE the IGK brand so I was super excited to try this try shampoo but was disappointed when I realized how drying it was. Left my hair feeling a little crunchy at the ends and had the worst residue that would stay on my hands unless washed right after
RNSUNFLOWER from Melbourne, Fl
This dry shampoo is by far the best on the market. My daughter has extremely oily hair. She uses this in between washing and it works like a charm. Just like everything in life, use in moderation. To much can make your hair look powdery.
Kayla from Seattle, WA
There are some bad reviews and I get it, but here's the thing, you shouldn't be using dry shampoo every day or even every other day. If you're hair is that oily then you're better off washing it. Over use of any dry shampoo would leave to dry, damaged hair. It's literally stripping all the good oils. That being said, this dry shampoo is perfect for time crunch hair styles (day of hair wash but have to go into work first) and I'll definitely be repurchasing. Doesn't weigh hair down. Scent is light and barely there. Not a terrible white cast. For reference I have dirty blonde hair.
Shannon from Milwaukee WI
I've tried everything. I just keep going back to this. I love it. Their is nothing on the market even comparable. I know it's a tad pricey, but worth it. Ten stars.
