Nope! As you can see, I have pretty dark hair and it does not leave white residue in my hair.
When you first spray it it does look a little while but quickly disappears after you brush or just let it sit.
My favorite way to use this is by spraying some before bed or before working out so that it soaks up the oil before it happens. This would be good for you to use on second day hair before bed so you can wake up with re-freshed hair!
