My mom gave me this product last year and I thought it was kind of silly, but I tried it just to see how it would work. Its actually pretty great. I have oily hair so I have to wash my hair everyday for it to look nice and fresh. However, we all know that sometimes you have a last minute thing that comes up and there is just not time. This dry shampoo has been great for occasions like these. You just hold it a few inches away from your hair and spray and then rub in the powder like formula. It absorbs excess oil and leaves your hair looking fresh and clean. I think it is a great product to have on hand and it has lasted me a long time too. For the price it is a good value and I will purchase it again. Effectiveness Leaves hair fresh and clean looking for those last minute emergencies, when you didn't have time to wash your hair. Scent The scent is very soft and pretty much unnoticeable. It won't bother you.
