Review for: amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo 5.3 oz/ 153 g more...
Let me start off by saying I seriously LIVE on dry shampoo, so I’ve tried my fair share of them!! I have thick straight hair that I wash once maybe twice a week. I only get a little oily in between washes, but I love using dry shampoo because I like my hair looking and smelling fresh. I had been wanting to try this one for awhile because I kept seeing it in the professional beauty supply stores I shop at since I am a cosmetologist. I got this in my Bless Box and I was so excited to see it. It has a strong smell but I love how it smells. It’s a big bottle and worth the price in my opinion. My hair felt clean and bouncy. Would definitely repurchase.

I’ve had such a hard time with greasy hair day 2 after washing my hair. So frustrating when I talk to other girls and they can go almost a week without washing their hair. I tried using cheap brand of dry shampoo but never liked the way my hair felt. I still dirty and no one wants to feel that way. Let me tell ya lol. So long story short I got my beauty license went to cosmo prof and say the most beautiful bottom I’ve ever seen, saw it was dry shampoo and decided I had to try it. Yes I mainly bought this because of how pretty the bottle was lol. But it turned out to be one of my favorite products and I would highly recommend it 😊

amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo this is by far my favorite dry shampoo ever, it doesn't give white residue unless my hair is so oily, and even if you have residue you can just rub your hair and it will come off easily. It smells amazing I came to a point where I spray it just to make my hair smells good and fresh specially after using a straightener. I literally went and got Amika Blow Up Spray and Amika Nourishing Hair Mask and they are amazing too

I recently bought this product after my roomate told me about it.  I have dark and pretty naturally straight hair.  I usually need to wash my hair everyday or I feel like it gets greasy. I've been having a lot of trouble finding dry shampoo that works well for me.  While this product smells amazing and looks great at first, I feel like a few hours later my hair returns to its original look.  This seems to be a constant issue for me with dry shampoo. If my hair were to stay how it looks when I first use the product, I'd give it a 5.  Due to the short lived results, I'm giving it a 3.

I was so excited when this came in my Birchbox! It is also one of several dry shampoos I have tried in recent years. It is above and beyond my new favorite dry shampoo. Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo smells great, and is one of the only try shampoo I have tried with long-lasting effect. Many shampoos work well for a few hours, then I feel my hair looks greasy by the end of the day. Not with this though! It is slightly pricier than others I have tried, but well worth it. I will be repurchasing.

Review for: Amika: Perk Up Dry Shampoo more...
I have tried almost every dry shampoo out there and I keep coming back to this. It smells great and unlike other products, my hair is still soft after I use this. With other products, I won’t be able to get my fingers through my hair after. That doesn’t happen with the Amika. A lot of times I’ll get compliments on my hair after I use this and it’ll be day four hair! It does leave white residue if you use a lot (I do sometimes when my hair is especially dirty), but just rub it out with your fingers. I really want to try the new dry shampoo foam them have.

Review for: amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo Mini 1 oz more...
It was decent at soaking up oils without weighing down my hair, with a refreshing powdery scent. It also did not leave any white cast on my dark roots, and it wasn't difficult to rub in and didn't make my hair feel like a sticky or itchy mess... HOWEVER, it felt powdery as heck! Running my fingers through my roots left a noticeable residue on my fingers, as if I'd just touched my setting powder - a total turn off. I liked how my hair still felt light but the fact that I could literally feel it on my head was kind of disgusting.

What I was missing, also, was any volume, and it just didn't make my hair look or feel completely like new or refreshed. On top of that, I felt like I needed to use quite a bit of product to achieve achieve the level of freshness I got, even though I wasn't too oily to begin with, which left me unimpressed.

Overall, it's a step up from drugstore dry shampoos, but still doesn't hold a candle to my HG Detox dry shampoo (nor my 2nd place fave) which gives me all of the above, but with *much* more volume, and with a fraction of the product.

Let me start by saying I have used a ton of different brands of dry shampoo and this one is AMAZING!!!! This is the only brand I will use now. It goes on without leaving a ton of residue and it blends in leaving your have voluminous like you uses hairspray with out the hairspray texture. You don't need to use a lot and you don't need to do a ton of work to blend it in. 

Also, the packaging is ADORABLE and it smells awesome!!!

Review for: amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo Mini 1 oz more...
The Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo is an excellent, multitasker hair product. Basically, its a dry shampoo, volumizing spray and scalp treatment all in one. It’s unique in the fact that it’s one of the only dry shampoos on the market formulated without talc or aluminum. It’s enriched with rice starch to absorb excess oils. This is how I use it: I turn my head upside down as if I was rough drying my hair and then spray the product onto my roots. It doesn’t leave any residue on my hair. My only complaint is that it’s more on the pricey side at $25 for 5.3 oz. of product. I use dry shampoo frequently, so a can never lasts me very long. If I’m going to splurge, then I’d rather buy the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

I have been hearing nothing but good things about this dry shampoo-so I had to get my hands on it and try it out for myself. First of all-the smell is amazing! That was about the only good thing about it though. I did leave some residue and build up. With other dry shampoos I can go about 3 days in between a shampoos-this one I noticed the next day my hair felt funky and like a lot of build up was in it. Loved the smell, but I don’t believe the product was worth price necessarily compared to others out there.

Does this dry shampoo leave chalky residue in brunette hair or have a strange odor like most other dry shampoos?

Does this dry shampoo work well for those mornings you can't wash your hair, or does it make it feel dirty?
