I received this dry shampoo powder free from PINCHme in exchange for my honest, unbiased review. Normally I use dry shampoo spray and have honestly never been satisfied with the results. This was my first time trying a dry shampoo powder. Let me emphasize that you MUST follow the directions exactly for the best results. I did it without reading the directions the first time and I looked like I poured powder on my head, even after brushing you could still see a white cast. Then I read the directions, applying the powder and allowing it to sit and absorb for at least two minutes. It is also helpful to section your hair and do it one section at a time. This worked wonders for my hair! I tend to have oily roots and dry ends. This refreshed the roots and they looked freshly washed. After brushing this through my hair I was surprised that it seemed to soften and condition the ends as well. It has a wonderful light, fresh scent. It did give my very fine hair volume as well! What I do not like at all is the applicator. You honestly can't control how much comes out. I have used this multiple times and I either get too little of the product or it comes out in a big powdery glob. I believe that this even says it is an â€œimproved applicatorâ€. The applicator needs more improvement but I love the product itself so I would still buy it. I would just need to figure out a better way to apply it without wasting it.
this dry shampoo works really well on my fine hair. I tend to get an oily scalp around day 2 or 3, and if I use this once when I notice the oils creeping in, it keeps my hair looking clean until I wash it next (I wash once a week). love the product itself as it doesn't give too much of a white cast (if you don't use too much, which the bottle makes difficult). it also gives me a bit of volume, which is great since my hair falls so flat. unfortunately, I hate the packaging. I get it, powder dry shampoo comes in this type of packaging, but it makes it so difficult to control how much comes out. now that the bottle is getting low, it's even harder to get it to come out evenly, and it's really frustrating. I end up inhaling a good bit of it because it goes everywhere (thank God it's talc free). if they would change the packaging to make it easier to use, I would only buy this.

I used it after my hair was pretty oily. Does take away some of the oiliness but not 100%, maybe about 70%. Maybe I should have done it a little sooner. But yes, I would recommend it for times you don't have time.

U gotta squeeze the bottle and it randomly shoots out and in a big chunk - giving a view of a greyish white cast on your head. Needs a better lid!! Product works fine.

I bought this looking for a non-aerosol dry shampoo, and I specifically chose this Verb product because it has a refillable container. I figured if I didn't like the product, I could refill the cute bottle with some DIY dry shampoo. Well, I've had this dry shampoo for months now and I'm not even halfway through the bottle. This stuff lasts SO MUCH LONGER than aerosol dry shampoo. I will agree with the other reviews that the applicator is not the best, but it's better than a lot of other powder dry shampoos. I think you get a decent amount of control and even if you accidentally over-apply, this powder is very finely milled so it's easy to blend out with your fingers. As far as how it performs as a dry shampoo, it does an excellent job of absorbing oil but does not leave a lot of buildup in the hair - it really makes your hair look and FEEL cleaner. The fragrance is very light and not overpowering. I'm a huge fan and would definitely repurchase, even though this is more than i'd typically spend on hair product.

I hate using aerosol dry shampoos and decided to try this out on a whim, im so happy i did! Its wonderful, super lightweight but makes my hair feel clean. I notmally get oily relatively fast so this has been wonderful for extending my time between hairwash days without having my hair be a grease vat. It smells good but the smell isnt overpowering like the living proof dry shampoos. I havent had any irritation from it, and it is a wondeful product! I would say to puff some out in your hand as an overall application and then go around and do small puffs in areas that need more.

I really like this dry shampoo. I have tried so many and not many companies have powder dry shampoo and so I wanted to try this one. I love that their is no scent really sometimes I smell a very light clean smell but still not bad. it helps with oil very well. it is easy to apply. only thing is it is hard to sink in and not be super white in hair but with a hair oil is sinks in fine
It gives great volume and makes my hair look great!

Using this on dark hair can be risky, especially if applying direcrly to scalp. would recommend applying to hands first then massaging inro scalp. texture wise it did bring my hair back to life and give a lot of volume

I have thick, wavy hair and this powder is the ONLY dry shampoo that actually works on my hair. I love the powder, but the applicator is not good at all. It gets clogged and then squeezes too much product out. So, I just take the top off of the bottle and tap the powder in my hand to use.

Great product! Easy to use, and great results!

I love non aersol dry shampoos but they are so hard to find! This is excellent! No build up in my hair and it makes it feel so clean!
Samantha B. from Undisclosed
Great dry shampoo. I love the lack of aerosol. Sometimes it's hard to control how much comes out.
Katy H. from Undisclosed
This is a must have! So much better than typical aerosols!

I am so sorry that I purchased multiple bottles of this product. The formula that I loved is SO different! The previous formula did not make your hair feel â€œtackyâ€- but this one, I suppose in an attempt to add more body makes your hair instead feel super dirty! I have to wash my hair after adding this product, whereas before the product would extend my wash by a few days. So sad.

I love the dry shampoo itself. It's light, doesn't make my hair feel gritty or heavy. However, the applicator doesn't work well. It gets clogged and the dry shampoo doesn't come out.
Carlie from missouri
works well! blends nicely and is a great alternative to normal dry shampoo.

Why did Vern change the packaging for their dry shampoo? The new bottle is incredibly annoying to use. It's a squeeze bottle of dry shampoo that will spray out the dry powder in huge clumps across your head. It's so frustrating to use. Please bring back your old packaging.

I love the powder. It doesn't give my hair that stiff, dirty feeling. Will buy again!
Wendy B. from Undisclosed
Unclear if this is the same old VERB powder I loved, which was not in spray form, just regular powder. I can't tell yet. I use it as a styling and volumizing tool on my very fine straight hair, and have tried other brands that were not successful or even usable. Hoping this is at least very close to the old formulation.
Brittany E. from Undisclosed
I absolutely love this. I saw people complained about how the dry shampoo comes out but I bought this specifically because it didn't have the aerosol can with butane etc. It also works amazing and doesn't leave your hair feeling waxy like some.
Ashley from Cleveland
I know why this would get lower reviews, yes the application for this is awful. I would never just squeeze this into my hair. I squeeze it in my palm, coat my hands with the powder, throw my head upside down and ￼rub in the powder to the oily parts of my hair. I let it sit of for 2 mins then rub it in a little more then lightly brush it through. It works so great and lasts for a very long time! I have tried so many other brands but this by far is the best powder I have come across. Don't just judge it by the application.
Kara J. from Undisclosed
I purchased this to get away from spray dry shampoo. The product itself is great but I really dislike the bottle for application. I either dump way too much or get nothing out. So I started dumping it onto a small tray and using a dense make up brush to dab it into my hair. For that reason alone I don't know that I will buy again.

So light and airy and works fantastically!
Natalie from Pittsburgh
Worst product I've ever purchased from ulta. Horrible application process. Impossible to apply easily. Hard to believe this is the "improved" applicator. Would not recommend to anyone.
Jessica A. from Undisclosed
A little goes a long way with the dry shampoo powder! I absolutely love it. It give me a ton of volume, texture and takes the oiliness out of my unwashed hair. Lifesaver om the days I can't wash my hair!
