I've tried at least a dozen dry shampoos, both sprays and powders. I hated all the sprays, both high end and drugstore. I've been using Alterna and Oscar Blandi Pronto, which are both powders. However, I haven't gotten much volume, one of the main reasons for using dry shampoo. They also don't leave my hair feeling really clean, enough that I feel comfortable skipping shampoo. So I just don't use dry shampoo very often. These powders are just ok, but they didn't blow me away. However, this PHD dry shampoo is totally different from anything else. The ingredients or technology must be completely different because the results were magical! I got tons of volume that lasted for two days, there was no residue to brush out and my hair looked and felt truly clean and fresh. I followed the directions, shaking the can between each spritz and focusing solely on the roots, parting my hair in 1/2 inch sections, including the back. This product is white but the second step is massaging it into the roots. Supposedly it takes about 30 seconds for it to work but I gave it several minutes. After this time, there was no more white powder, it was absorbed by the oil. I have to say that my hair was quite dirty and incredibly, it looked better after using this product than it does when it's freshly washed. It was amazing!! Now I know what all the fuss was about and why my local Ulta is always sold out of this product. They simply can't keep it on the shelf. I'm a huge Living Proof fan, I use PHD s/c, Prime Style Extender, No Frizz Styling Spray, Satin Serum, Root Lifting Spray and Restore Instant Protection heat spray. Now I'm adding another product to this list of successes. This dry shampoo is simply incredible. If you haven't liked dry shampoo in the past, I urge you to give this one a try. The volume and freshness lasts me two days, which is great for my color treated hair. And it washes out easily with no buildup. I love it!
This product is ok.. definitely not worth the money. This product doesn't last very long, I used it up in about 2 weeks and I don't use it very often.

I love it!! Especially on my oily hair, it absorbs it pretty quick.. need to really massage it through, comb it otherwise the powder will get on your dark clothes. My hair looks healthy and very clean and these are compliments from people :)

This is my fav dry shampoo. We buy a lot of it. Packed for vacation. And said to my daughter, I'm checking a bag so i will pack the large LP. Getting ready for our dinner, it sprayed a bit and then stopped. I tried everything to fix it. No luck. Dry shampoo is the best for travel. But not if it doesn't work.
I saw another review stating this same problem. Living Proof, it's time to address this and fix the issue.

I always get asked if I had just got my hair done after using Living Proof Dry Shampoo.

I went to use this for the second time and the nozzle stopped working. The can is completely full and there's nothing clogging it. I now have to find time to go out of my way back to Ulta to return it. I'm not too happy. It also smells like washing a dog in a tub.
Meagan from Fontana, CA
The product worked well for dry shampoo. The price point for the size was not great. However, would not buy again because the smell was way too overpowering. Overwhelming.
cailyn from NY
works well, my hair doesnt feel or look dirty. my mom said it smells good but to me it smells like a trash bag bussed it down in a wendys. very strong while spraying and obviously stays in your hair. my dog wants to eat it

Best dry shampoo I have ever used! No sticky or white residue, the oil is almost completely gone within minutes of application, smells amazing, and no weird texture remnants!
Katie from Vermont
I was a loyal customer of this product for years, but it is so clear that this company has decided to transition to a cheaper production line. My hair is caked in white powder and the bottle stops working after 2-3 uses.
Sarah from Oklahoma
I love the brand, but the dry shampoo isn't up to the standard. If you have some what thicker hair you have to use a lot. For me, it doesn't last very long. I can't get over how much it smells exactly like a glade trash bag. Not that good of a smell. Personally not worth the money.
leigh from PA
Works better than the amika dry shampoo. The smell isnt bad its just not my favorite. Overall it works great and doesnt make my hair fell stiff or anything in it.
Jaime from San Bernardino, CA
I just learned how to properly use dry shampoo and now I feel like this is a game changer. Once I let it sit and then rub it in, and brush it out, it feels like I just washed it! Absolutely love this!
Beth from Overland Park, KS
It actually works ok, but you smell like a wet dog all day.
Taylor from Ohio
This is some sort of heavy texture spray do not use if you have fine thin hair it immidietly makes it greasy an separated

This stuff is miraculous for my fine, thin hair. It's the only dry shampoo that's ever made my hair feel clean. There's no gummy weirdness at the roots like others I've tried.
With the price increase I was thinking about trying something else until this pulled a dry shampoo miracle! I was already on 2nd day hair when I had an unexpected emergency hospital stay. The medication I was on made my blood so thin, I wasn't allowed to leave the bed. After a few days of being trapped in a bed my hair was disgusting. I had my Mom bring my living proof and it really did clean my hair! My hair stayed looking fluffy and clean for a few more days until I was safe to shower.
It's worth every penny!

This dry shampoo is not amazing, not horrible either. It does the job which is why I will continue to use this until it is finished to get my moneys worth. But the smell is SO STRONG and SO BAD. Its a mix of old lady and wet dog. Im not even sensitive to scents but I cannot stand the smell, mostly when spraying and when its drying. So just beware!!!

I wash my hair twice a week. Mondays and Fridays. I just used this for the first time this past week. I washed my hair Monday and at the end of the day, before bed, i used this. Usually by Thursday morning my hair is disgusting and I can't stand it by the night i throw it up into a pony tail just to get it off my face. I used this Monday, it is now Thursday and my hair looks just as good and feels as good as the firdt day i washed it. I may be able to get away with not washing it tomorrow (Friday) if i want. (Probably wont just because i feel like thats too long for me) hands down the best I have ever used. Smells good but really strong so be cautious of that.

I recommend that you do not buy it, if it leaves the roots white and also leaves a dust that looks like dandruff, horrible.

I've never been able to find a dry shampoo that doesn't weigh down my fine thin hair and actually work. This doesn't weigh down my hair and gives me an extra day out of my style. I usually have to wash my hair everyday but it's nice now having something to use so I can go one extra day if I'm running late.
Theresa from Houston, Tx
Great product! Pricey for dry shampoo, but smells wonderful, not heavy and perfect for sweaty hair refresh!
Amanda from St. Louis, MO
A dry shampoo that I can easily work into my dark hair that does not show up. Nice fragrance to it as well, without being overwhelming.
Steph from Chicago
While on the hunt for the best Dry Shampoos this has been by far, one of the best ones out there. It doesnt leave any dandruff looking product all over your hair. Once you spray it on it does leave a white coat over your hair but if you massage it in it blends in perfectly. The only con I have with this product is the SMELL. I don't know why but the scent makes me sick. It doesnt smell bad like a chemical it just has this horrible floral like scent? I'm not sure how too describe it but personally I hope they come out with another spray that has a diffrent or no scent at all.
Chris from Seattle, WA
I use PHD Dry Shampoo all the time and love it. I can go for anywhere between 4-5 days without washing my hair and it still looks great! Can't live without it and am so happy they offer a travel size too.
Natalie from Pittsburgh
I hate this product. Why do people like it?! It just gives my hair the worst texture and makes my hair greasy for days even after washing.
