I recently had the opportunity to try Olaplex's new dry shampoo, and I must say it has become an absolute game-changer for my fine, thin hair! This product was gifted by Olaplex for my honest review, and I am delighted to share my experience. One of the standout features of this dry shampoo is its ability to add remarkable body to my otherwise limp and lifeless locks. I've always struggled with achieving voluminous hair, but Olaplex's dry shampoo has truly transformed my styling routine. With just a few spritzes of this magical formula, my hair gains an incredible boost of volume and looks fuller and more luscious than ever before. As someone who used to wash their hair every two days due to oiliness, I now find myself extending the time between washes, thanks to this remarkable product. Olaplex's dry shampoo effectively absorbs excess oil and eliminates any greasy residue, allowing me to confidently rock my refreshed hair for an extra day. I can now comfortably go three days without washing, and my hair looks and feels just as clean as if I had just stepped out of the shower. What sets Olaplex's dry shampoo apart from others is its weightless formula. Unlike many other dry shampoos on the market, this product doesn't weigh down my fine hair or leave any sticky or powdery residue behind. Instead, it effortlessly blends into my hair, leaving it feeling light, airy, and completely natural. No more worries about product buildup or heaviness! Another impressive feature of this dry shampoo is its ability to leave no white cast. As someone with darker hair, I've often struggled with finding a dry shampoo that doesn't leave a noticeable residue. However, Olaplex's dry shampoo seamlessly vanishes into my hair, leaving no trace of white or chalky particles. I can confidently use it even on days when I'm wearing my hair down, knowing that it won't compromise the appearance of my locks. In summary, Olaplex's new dry shampoo has truly revolutionized my hair care routine. It adds body and volume to my fine, thin hair, allowing me to achieve the bouncy and voluminous look I've always desired. With its weightless formula and absence of white cast, it seamlessly blends into my hair, leaving it fresh, clean, and full of life. Thanks to Olaplex, I can confidently extend the time between washes and enjoy the benefits of healthier-looking hair.
Don't get me wrong, I love Olaplex. I live for No.6 and No.7. Unfortunately this was a swing and a miss. I have natural curly hair but only use dry shampoo when I straighten it. I don't have an oily scalp but when my hair is straight it tends to go that way.
Pros: My first impressions
The fragrance is the typical Olaplex scent. First thing that pops into mind was the No.7 scent. It does come out "clear" as advertised, as in there is no white residue and it also adds volume. I touched my hair afterwards and it has a very fine/milled powder feeling hardly noticeable which I did like. Also for a few instances my hair did feel fresh and light.
Despite that, it didn't do that great afterwards.
Cons: I had to spray on a lot for it to achieve the dry shampoo effect since it wasn't absorbing the oil. After an hour or so, it was starting to look a bit rough again. It wasn't even sunny for it to wear off so quickly and it was second day hair. I tried it a couple of times and just came to terms that it just wasn't for me and not what I had hoped for.
Maybe it'll work on finer hair or if you want volume/texture with some dry shampoo so you won't have to use different products.

One of my least favorite dry shampoos. Does not absorb oil at all

I love this product.
Karen from TEXAS
This dry shampoo did nothing to me. I have fine hair and hair continues to stay oily and without volume after using this dry shampoo.

lightweight, smells amazing, doesn't leave a white cast. although, if you're looking something for volume this does minimal this is more for oil absorbing
Althea from San Francisco
Doesn't add volume and barely works
Jen from Illinois
I was gifted by olaplex and i tried it out and i really enjoyed it, it helps with the grease but it does leave a little bit of residue that you can work with, other than that it smells fine and i will keep using.

OMG this is the best Dry Shampoo I've every used! I have dark brown/black hair that gets oily and just all around unpleasant if I don't wash everyday. My hair doesn't feel good if I don't do something to tame it in between washes. I've tried a number of dry shampoos from everybody's overall favorite brand Batiste, and this blows it out of the water! No residue, great smell, and it works! Hair feels AMAZING after using it. And as someone who is constantly trying to find something that works on my difficult hair, this is totally a Holy Grail!

This dry shampoo is lightweight, smells nice (without being too overpowering), and is effective on days 2 and 3 hair. A reminder to use dry shampoo BEFORE your hair is super greasy to absorb oil as it is produced vs when it is already in your hair. Because this is lightweight, I don't imagine it does a great job when the hair is already greasy. I also like that its a bigger cannister than some others! Overall, I am happy with the product.

This did little for my hair as far as absorbing oil. It also made my hair to start falling out. Will be returning. I had read reviews on the shampoo and people complained it made their hair fall out.
Staci from Flagstaff Arizona
Not worth the money- has a heavy feeling and did little for my hair. I have had less expensive brands do better.
Leni from ky
I could be on day 5 of not washing my hair and lil bit of this and i have 1 day wash day volume, doesnt feel heavy like other dry shampoo!!
Samm from Central Minnesota
I don't think this does anything at all. Doesn't add volume or help with 2nd day hair what at all. Smells good, that's about it.
FLTXNCNYGIRL from FL
This is the least effective dry shampoo I have ever used.
Kristy from Scottsdale, AZ
It does the trick with no white residue or overwhelming smell like many other dry shampoos.
Sheryll from FL
Not a huge fan. Reminds me of the one from Pureology.
Lisa from Medford
I have fine, thin hair!
This dry shampoo is awesome! I have lots of volume, no white residue, oil is gone! I can now manage my hair without having to wash it every day! It's worth every Penny!
Jamie from BelAir, MD
I had high hopes considering the other quality products but this left me limp. I tried a little , a lot but it simply didn't work. Next day hair left looking like next day hair with an unpleasant smell. Sorry Olaplex but for me this was a fail.
Kaylan from Dallas, TX
I have fine/thick hair, fairly oily, and this does nothing to help it. Do not recommend.
Peggy from Memphis
My hair was very greasy looking after using. Will return to dry bar
I received the No. 4D Clean Hair gifted by Olaplex in exchange for my honest review. I normally don't like dry shampoo because of how it often makes my hair feel even more dirty, however, this is not the case with this dry shampoo. I like how it doesn't feel powdery.
Megan from Ohio
I bought this with high hopes and it just isn't great. Most drug store options are way better. Felt like I couldn't use enough to get a clean feeling.
Rachel from Oakland, CA
This dry shampoo is lightweight yet absorbs oil which is great because I hate the build up I get from other dry shampoos. The best part is you can use a ton of it and you never get that white residue!
Ariah from Austin, TX
Recommend DryShampoo! Good amount of product! Packaging is sleek. The dry shampoo leaves hair sleek and removes oil from scalp. The product has a fresh scent. Above average dry shampoo option! Gifted by Olaplaex
Isabelle from Miami, FL
I absolutely loved this product! Besides the fact that it smells amazing, it completely refreshed my hair and took out all of the oil. I usually love Olaplex products but I really really enjoyed this one! This dry shampoo I received was a gifted by Olaplex!
Sarah from Tempe AZ
