I'm surprisingly impressed with this (PhD) Living Proof Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo, as it left me with great results! I have been using dry shampoo religiously for a couple of years now, and have tried a few different brands, but found a favorite and stuck to it like glue. Not long ago, I heard about this brand, all the great things about it, and was curious, so I knew I had to explore further. I'm glad I recently jumped on the bandwagon, and I couldn't be more satisfied! This dry shampoo soaks all the oils out of my 3rd day hair, actually cleaning my hair, quickly without leaving any residue buildup on my scalp and it leaves my hair really soft and shiny! I'm really loving how it gives my thin, flat hair a look of having more lift and volume, unlike my previous favorite dry shampoo! This dry shampoo also, doesn't irritate my sensitive scalp and it smells amazing, the scent lasts for the majority of the day! However, I have noticed a bit of a white cast, but I have also, noticed if I use it before bed, it's not as bad the next day. My hair feels and looks clean. Overall, it's much better than my previous brand of dry shampoo, and meets all my expectations, I will be sticking with this dry shampoo brand and highly recommend it to others, who use dry shampoo.
If you forget to shake the can, the whole thing flops.
My first use of this was ASTOUNDING—my hair looked better dirty and with dry shampoo than it does clean and styled!
But, I think I forgot to shake the can at one point, because my second and third uses were underwhelming—hair didn't really degrease. I didn't see any powder, either.
Plus the smell...it's giving nursing home? Baby powder and just ick. It actually nauseates me a bit. And it lingers...when I got back into my car after running an errand, I could really smell it. Yuck.
I got the travel can and it's about 5-7 uses...enough for a trip or to sample.
I might still try it again while diligently shaking the can, but first I'm looking for an alternative, mostly due to the smell.

I was looking to try a better dry shampoo and this one is great! It has a great smell and does a good job as a dry shampoo.

I've used diff dry shampoos over the years and it was always a very meh experience. My hair always felt kinda weird from it & it never really made it completely non-oily.
When I got my hair done with vivid color, I knew I finally needed to find one that actually worked to minimize washing my hair with water (yes, this is safe for color treated hair). This was pricey, but all the reviews RAVED about it. So I tried it and I'm honestly shocked… this stuff is INCREDIBLE. My hair is actually SOFT, the greasiness is GONE and it smells AMAZING!!!!! 40/40 highly recommend, worth every penny.

My hair feels clean with a bounce and it smells great after use. It does not make my hair feel stiff (which I love) but it does the job of making my hair look full.

Doesn't leave hair looking greasy, feels clean

I've been using this product for a while and love it. However, the last TWO bottles have had a faulty spray nozzle. The first of the two I had for less than 10 days and was on the second or third use when the nozzle stopped working. I went to my nearest Ulta store and they were very nice to let me swap it out for another one. But then that one also stopped spraying on the first use just a few days later. So now I've got to go back to the store AGAIN and see if they'll let me swap it out for another one. Did I just happen to get two bottles from the same faulty batch or what?!? Ridiculous for a product that costs what it does.

I love this version of the LivingProof Dry Shampoo! I wasn't a fan of the original version but I love this one and will continue to purchase it!! The smell isn't over powering, doesn't leave a white cast and doesn't make my hair stiff, just clean!

I have long, straight, fine, medium density, post menopausal hair. I like to be able to rum my fingers through my hair and this dry shampoo has been the only one I can do this with! There is no grit or dryness to it and I want to shout it from the roof tops! Ive even misted this through my lengths and ends to detangle and smooth! I buy the big can now as I prefer it over their darker grey can of dry shampoo.

I love the product itself, but the spray nozzle is terrible. It stops working out of nowhere and there's no way to get more product out. I have had to return not one, but two of these bottles for this reason.

I have dark red hair and this dry shampoo was easy to blend into my hair and did not leave any white residue. It did make my hair look clean, although it did not make my hair as shiny or add as much volume as other, less expensive brands. I found the smell to be pretty intolerable and very chemical-y. I would not buy this again as there are less expensive brands that do just as good or better at making my hair look clean & shiny and smell much better.

I really wanted to love this spray because it has great reviews. And while it does the job, it smells disgusting. Like old and musty or something, I can't describe it. lol if you can get past that, the product is great!
Krystal from Eastvale
Its fine dont get me wrong it absorbs the oil but i get so itchy after and orobably by the next day i already reel the need to wash out my hair not a big fan for the price and it leaves white residue

I love this dry shampoo, but I've had 3 bottles of this break causing me to waste a lot of product. The spray cap breaks and no more product will come out of the can. I used to buy the other living proof dry shampoo and never had this issue until I tried this line.
This product worked like a charm! I was on day 5 hair the day before wash day and it worked so well!
Ruthd from Charlotte
This is by far my favorite dry shampoo! I have tried so many and this one is amazing. It doesn't leave my hair white and it actually cleans my hair and makes it look so much better. I can't recommend this one enough and so glad I tried it. I only wish it wasnt so expensive!
shhh from maryland

JL from Charlotte, NC
I have fine, thin hair and this works as you would expect any dry shampoo to work (I shook it well between sprays.) My issue with the product is that I can't say that it performs any better or worse than other less costly options. I've been using it for a few weeks and I have not noticed anything about this product that stands out or feels special in any way. It's a good dry shampoo, however the results do not justify the cost
Jennifer from Stoney Fork, KY
I would recommend this dry shampoo to anyone trying to get more time between washes and not have an oily, bad hair day. The smell is phenomenal and, once you rub it into your scalp, there is absolutely no powdery residue. I have dark hair so this is a definite bonus. I am in love with this product!

I started with only the highly rated dry shampoos- living proof phd, klorane, igk... then when the advanced clean came out, I jumped on it. I personally hated the smell of phd so this was better but didn't do anything for my day 2 hair. Then by some reason through YouTubers, I tried drugstore dry shampoos. They work just as well if not better and have extremely similar ingredient lists at a fraction of the price. Don't even get me started on the benzene- I'm not talking about those. So unless you really enjoy the scent, save your money on dry shampoo!!
Steph from Youngstown, Ohio
The smell of this dry shampoo is AWFUL. It worked to make my hair less oily BUT I used it before driving home from a trip. I noticed the smell as soon as I used it and hates it but what really bothered me was my mom who was in the car with me noticed the smell as soon as I got in the car and could not stand it. So bad. I wanted to love it (especially for the price)
kalie from amherst ohio
love this works amazing!
Jess from Lexington, KY
I have tried several dry shampoos, I came across this one and decided to try it out. It's now become the only dry shampoo I will ever use! It actually cleans my hair and leaves it looking good all day long. I don't have to wash my hair as much anymore, it's that good! Worth every penny!!
LP from Indy
I tried soooo hard to like this when I received two free samples but oh my goodness did my hair resemble my bulldog fresh our of the bath. I wish it smelled more like the hair spray 😭
Jamie from michigan
This stuff is like magic to my hair. I have used it for a while and will always have it on hand.
Danielle from Yuba City, CA
This smells like wet dog and the scent is very overwhelming. I'm glad I didn't purchase the full size.
