Review for: amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo 5.3 oz/ 153 g more...
I haven't had a lot of experience with dry shampoo and only recently started using it, but I really like this one. I have oily hair and was super excited that I got a sample sized bottle(0.75 oz) of it in my Birchbox this month. Because I have oily hair, I end up washing it on most days, however I'd like to reduce that to every other day and found that it works great to absorb all the excess oils. 

I also appreciate that this dry shampoo doesn't leave white powder in my roots or scalp. Granted, I have blond hair, but I think it won't leave the white powder look on darker hair colors either because it's almost a clear formula. Another thing about this product that impressed me was that it kept my oils under control all day long, which I found that most other dry shampoos don't.

I have long hair, straight hair making volume hard to come by, so I was hoping this product would add volume, but I didn't see a difference. I'm not mad at this because even products that are marketed as "volumizing" often don't do much for me. 

My only qualm with this product is that the scent, which I actually do like a lot, is very strong and as a healthcare worker, I have to be conscious of peoples' fragrance allergies.

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 😊

I'm a huge fan of dry shampoo and had to try this when I saw it! The packaging is so cute and bright. My hair felt very refreshed after trying it. The scent is nice and subtle. Would recommend!

PRO TIP: Use this on colored hair to lengthen time between washes!

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 absolutely love this dry shampoo, it’s probably my favorite! The smell is amazing and unlike other brands which is probably why i love it so much. It’s also so easy to blend out the initial “whiteness” when you spray it and it doesn’t look like you’ve used dry shampoo like other brands. The only negative it the price point, it’s about 3X as much as most brands even at wal Mart, but recently they had a sale on their website so I stocked up. Otherwise, I probably won’t be able to buy this as often as other brands that are pretty similar!

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.

Let me start off by saying that I basically live off of dry shampoo. This is BY FAR the best dry shampoo I’ve ever used. First, the packaging is too adorable. Second, the freaking product itself is insanely good. A lot of other dry shampoos leave my hair feeling bulky and dirty, not this one. And the smelllllllll omg. It smells so good and it sticks with you all day. I can also tell it contains a lot more product than your regular drug store dry shampoo. 10/10 would recommend.

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?
