Rated 4.1 out of 5 stars
This product works. I've tried 5 different typed of DS. The only other brand that's effective is Suave. Dove is good, I don't like the perfume. Don't bother with Pantene, it's more like hairspray, & Styliste Ultîme (German).
I purchased the "unscented" version of NYM. Finally, a dry shampoo without a heavy perfume! THANK YOU SOO MUCH. Genius. I washed Monday night & didn't wash until Friday. See picture. I applied day after I shampooed. Perhaps if u apply when hairs too greasy, it's not gna work as well. I stopped using DS bc I couldn't stand any of the perfumes, no matter how subtle or strong. Esp when hair isn't squeaky clean, it's gna hold onto smells more.
This is my holy grail now. I have fine, thin, long hair to my elbow. I color w highlights. My roots get greasy esp bc I live in Florida & it's hott! I'm low maintenance. No blow dry, no flat iron, no products. I used to use a root lifter. Now this is my root lifter. It gives hair a texture.
I need to mention, this shuld spray white. First time I tried it, I think I shook can too much. It just sprayed air (butane). User error. Cple days later, I tried again. This time I shook bottle & let it sit for 30-60 seconds, then it sprayed white. And I do a good brushing beforehand. It's harder for me to brush the roots after a few days. My hair gets knotty at the root anyways.
Thank you NYM. Love 💚the unscented. It works like a charm 👍
I work retail, so occassionally, I am scheduled to work at 8:00 a.m. When that happens, I usually take my shower the night before. My hair is normally pretty oily, so it looks greasy and limp if I don't shampoo it every day. I bought this dry shampoo on a whim. It's relatively cheap, and a fairly big bottle.
When I first started using it, I loved the results. It did a good job of controlling the oil and you couldn't even tell I'd washed my hair the night before. I also liked that you got the desired effect using very little product.
But then in March, I was schedule for 8:00 a.m. shifts 5 days in a row. I washed my hair the night before, and then used this dry shampoo before work in the morning. The following week, I noticed a major change in my hair. It became very dry, brittle, and started falling out. When I blow dry my hair, I run my fingers through it as I'm drying it, just to fluff it out a little more. When I would do this, I would find numerous strands between my fingers. I also started noticing more hair falling out in the shower. Not enough to really freak me out, but definitely more than normal. My hair started looking like straw, which has NEVER been a problem for me before. I realized it had to be from this dry shampoo. So I stopped using it and threw it in the trash. But the damage was already done to my hair.
I tried several deep conditioners, but couldn't find one that repaired the damage and made my hair healthy again. But then I found Neutrogenia Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditoner. I had to use about a palmful of product and leave it on for 5 minutes (as opposed to the 1 minute it says on the tube) but the Neutrogenia Deep Conditioner has done a good job of repairing the damage. My hair is soft and looks more healthy than it has in months. It's not 100% restored, but it is very close. I suspect that it will only be a few more days before my hair is back to normal.
When I saw the ingredients for this dry shampoo, I was absolutely floored. The first 3 ingredients are isobutane, propane, and alcohol. No wonder it fried my hair! Needless to say, I don't recommend this product to anyone, and will definintely NOT repurchase. If you are looking for a GOOD dry shampoo, I suggest the one by Suave Professionals.

I bought this for the first time because the one I normally use was out of stock. I only was able to get 3 uses out of it before the bottle messed up and only air would come out, no product. Plus, my hair was oily by lunch.

i have been using this product for YEARS and never had issues but they recently changed the packaging or something and im lucky if the cans last me 3 sprays. i have 5 full bottles that just dont spray anything out. unfortunately have to find a new brand of dry shampoo now
from Tallahassee, FL
This is the second time I've only gotten a couple of uses out of it and the product disintegrates from the bottle and comes out as a stream of liquid the second use.
Abigayle from nashville
Literally use a whole can every 3 weeks and i love it
Vicki from Charlotte
I literally got about 5 seconds of spray from this can and that is not an exaggeration. Total waste of money. I thought I'd at least get a few uses out of it over a weekend but NO!
Madison from Middletown, OH
This is my favorite line of dry shampoo and the travel size is a must! Its so much easier to pack and tote around than the larger bottles. I find this line to be affordable and it does exactly what its supposed to, which is why i stick with it. I try to infrequently use dry shampoo, but on those days when i need my hair to stretch another day or two this is great for sucking up the oil and giving a more clean look yo my hair.
I loveeee Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo and i seem to always go for them. They're affordable, work, and smell good. Even better, i feel like they frequently get put on a buy 1 get 1 50% sale, and thats usually when i buy. My main notes are these: 1) i do think the bottles tend to run out on the faster side. That being said, i still find it affordable and i try to use dry shampoo infrequently and sparingly, so im not constantly rebuying even though it runs out quickly. If you're a frequent dry shampoo user, these might not be the preferred option for you if you dont want to buy frequently. 2) you have to be careful how close you have the bottle to your head when you spray. Ive found that if its too close and you accidentally concentrate the product in one area, it doesnt spread out well (though you can get it to blend in) which will INCREASE the amount you have to use that time to take care of your whole head. The best option is to hold it at the appropriate distance so everything gets lightly covered quickly. That will help with the bottles lasting longer. Despite all of this, i still hold these are my favorite dry shampoos and i intend to stick with them!

Just shake, spray, and then give it a minute. Once that then bruh it through and your hair looks like you washed it.

Disappointed from Paducah, KY
I have used NYM dry shampoo exclusively pretty much since it came out. Yes, it does have a smell, yes it left a whitecast in your hair, but once tou brushed it out it was fine. I was so excited to try the new formula in hopes it would fix these issues. Good news, it does! Bad news, the bottle stops working after the first spray. I usually buy a 3 pack and it lasts me around 3 months. I bought a 3 pack and went through it in 2 weeks because of this issue. I am thoroughly disappointed and will have to switch brands now.
Mrs.C from Texas
I grabbed this product with high hopes but unfortunately was disappointed. My hair didnt look any better with this spray, it caused so much build up. I don't like to wash daily and my hair is not extremely oily, I hoped this would help me skip a day of washing but after a few hours it felt like I hadn't washed my hair in a week instead of 24hours. Sticking with my go-to (Batiste).
Slkgal38 from Raleigh
My favorite is Dove. BUT- This stuff is a great deal but it doesn't last as long as Dove. Also my hair feels like a heavy buildup starts to form and after 3 days i have to wash it out. I gave this for Sara's because you get a lot for the money however, I would recommend if you do not use it alot.
Bella from P.A.
Wavy fine hair. This not only refreshes, it gives body too!
Britt from Missouri
This product does absolutely nothing. I spray my roots which just they remain oily but now now white.
Anna from Wisconsin
I really like this product. I don't get the white cast like I have with most other dry shampoos. It also smells really nice.
Rachel from MI
Love the volume I get with this product. It does have a fragrance, but it's fine, not too overwhelming.
emma g from indiana
this dry shampoo is the worst. it makes my hair feel like straw and i can hear it squeak when i brush it. it makes my hair so stiff, so i can't even style it after i use it. it leaves behind a terrible white cast too.
Morgan from Oklahoma
Love this brand. Doesn't make my scalp itch. Perfect travel size for on the go hair care
Alyssa from NJ
Does nothing besides leave a residue. Tried to save money but will be going back to Kristen Ess
Juana from San Jose, CA
I tried this because it was cheaper than batiste and I regret it! It made my head feel itchy and that resulted in me getting so much dandruff flakes.
Toni from Royal Oak, MI
This dry shampoo is the best one I've found. I like the Original scent best. I usually use Unscented items, but in this brand, the Unscented smells awful and has a stronger smell than the Original! I only use this once in awhile and no more than two days in a row. After spraying, don't overwork your hair or it will look heavy and your hair will feel "coated".
clnapier07 from TN
Adds a ton of build up. can't even brush through hair after using it. It soaks up oil but just makes hair look gross and stringy. No from me.
Abby from Des Moines
I had such a bad breakout from this product. I had a rash all down my neck and back of my head as well as my scalp and hairline. It also makes your hair hard to work with, builds up, adds a white cast, is heavy & can be clumpy. Would not recommend.
