Question
Okay for dandruff prone hair?
I get dandruff in the winter time unfortunately, and I was wondering if this would be bad for my dry scalp?

Speaking as someone who gets flakes from dry scalp, this dries my scalp out even more and makes the flakes worse. This makes sense, since it's absorbing the excess oil that would otherwise be helping to moisturize my scalp. However, I don't have a problem with it causing them to be more noticeable; you can rub it into your hair without your fingertips actually touching your scalp, and let it do most of the soaking in itself. By the end of the day when I brush my hair before bed, I'll notice that it has dried my scalp out more, but I don't have an issue with increased flakes.

If all else fails, just try it out! Sephora has a great return policy and if you can't make it work for you, you can always bring it back.

It's not bad for your hair per se but because it is white, you need to rub it in thoroughly to avoid looking like you have even more dandruff. But it actually will probably help with your dandruff problem because having a dry scalp only gets worse when you wash it more, and this will allow you to go longer in between washes! Hope I helped!

In my opinion, this product is best for an oily scalp. My sister has very dry hair (never gets oily) and she hates dry shampoo. I have fine/oily hair and love it. I think it would be too much for a dry scalp and might cause your scalp to flake more than usual. Hope that helps.

Personally I wouldn't reccommend using this product for someone with dandruff that's caused by a dry scalp. It is a powedered product and you have to make sure you brush your hair very throroughly so that it doesn't settle on your scalp. It may be a good idea to contact your usual hair dresser, who is familiar with your hair and seek their advice as well. Good Luck!

I wouldn't use this if you are struggling with your dandruff. I struggle with the same dry scalp issues-and unfortunately this made my head itch more. What I have been doing if I want to skip a wash is washing my hair one day with a really good dandruff shampoo and then just conditioning the very ends of my hair-I let it air dry and then the next day it's still fresh. The roots are not oily because I didn't condition them the day before and I try not to put too many styling products on it that first day-maybe just a light spritz of hair spray to keep it in place. Hope this helps! : )

I get dandruff too, but surprisingly, since I've been using this product regularly, I haven't had it! If I get lazy and don't use this product and don't wash my hair, my dandruff starts to come back. I've heard dandruff can appear from too much oil...

Okay, I get mild dandruff too, and what i noticed was that since Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo is a POWDER, you have to drop the powder on your hair near the roots, then either rub it in or use a comb to comb out the roots (otherwise it leaves a white residue).

I noticed that my hair had visible flakes in it after doing that (especially after the rubbing part). I don't even have that much dandruff but i get small visible dandruffy flakes in my hair and that's when i use the Oscar Blandi after not washing my hair for two days or so.

If you have dandruff, i'm assuming a dry powder shampoo isn't for you... you should stick to the sprays because you don't have to rub in the sprays

I could certainly see this product being bad for your dry scalp, only because it is a white powder base (almost like baby powder) and that may just enhance the dandruff, especially with the fact that it works best when rubbed into your scalp. You might want to try the dry shampoo spray! I hear it works great also

to be honest, i'm not sure about dandruff-prone hair (my hair is kind of thin and a little dry, but i'm usually ok as far as dry scalp goes). this product is ideal for touching up oily/greasy spots, which usually occur after a day or two of not washing your hair and are most noticeable at the roots/scalp. it's formulated without a lot of synthetic or harsh chemicals, so the product itself shouldn't irritate your skin. if you tend to get oily/greasy roots or bangs, i'd definitely recommend trying it out. if you don't love it, remember that sephora lets you return it & refunds your money (even if you use it a few times).

Question
How long does it last?
I'm considering buying this product because there are so many good reviews about it, but is it REALLY worth the money?
I don't want to buy something that will run out after only a few uses or anything..
I guess this depends on how much I use and how often, though.
What if I use it every other day? (I don't know the amount I'm supposed to be using for this product yet though...)
PS: It will be the first time for me using dry shampoo! Are there any other cheaper/better products you guys recommend?

I got a 1 oz bottle in July 2011 as a free sample and it is now Nov 2011 and I have not go through it yet. I use it about two to three times a week and have thick, black hair about four inches past my shoulders. I have used many, many dry shampoos and this is the best. It last a LOT longer than the cheaper kinds and I think that you actually end up saving money since even the 1 oz bottle last more than four months. I usually went through one bottle every three weeks spending $8 on cheaper brands. This one is well worth the price! I have even ordered the bigger bottle.

I have been using dry shampoo on my fine hair forever (it seems). The prices of different brands are about the same, so you want to find a product you like for its scent or ease pf application. Using the Pronto Dry Shampoo, I lift up large strands of my hair, turn the bottle upside down and shake it once or twice so that you see a very fine veil of powder settle on your hair. Do this once on each side, thice on the back of your head, once or twice on top, then ruffly up your hair with your fingers to disperse the product. Brush (style) your hair and you're done! You don't want to apply so much that you can feel the residue on your scalp. Even the small (1 oz) bottle should last you for more than 100 applications. Hope you enjoy the product as much as I do!

I say go for it! I don't run through it that quickly but I probably only use it about 3 times per week. Just sprinkle it over your roots. I run my fingers through my hair and try to get the product close to my scalp and then rub in. i also hit my hair with the blowdryer on cool for a bit and continue to massage my scalp so there is no white residue. This helps with volume as well. you don't need a terrific amount at once.

I'd recommend this product if your looking to try something. it was rated best by allure so i tried it. since its your first time using dry sampoo im sure you dont even know if your going to like it so your skeptical. Id get the 28g/1oz. The bottle is from the tip of your figure to your palm. it does look small but you dont need to use a lot. if your hair is short - probably 2, maybe three puffs. if your hair is longer like mine to the shoulder blades id use 4. its not like your going to be using it everyday. if 2ce a week id say it will last 1.5-2 months atleast. (2 months if your hair is short)

This product is wayy worth it! Lasted me for over a year with small/cheapest bottle. Just use an appropriate amount. I just rub it into the root of your hair, usually where your hair parts and massage it in. You dont use much of the shampoo when it's used properly. I only used it occasionally, so it also depends on how often it's used.

I think it depends a little bit on how long your hair is. My hair is about 4 inches past my shoulders and I think the bottle should last me at least through 15 applications. I used it today and my hair was really greasy looking and I only needed a small amount and my hair basically looked freshly washed after I straightened it.
I used to put baby powder in my hair if it was greasy but it doesn't blend in very well and makes your hair look grey-ish. My friend uses gold bond powder instead and says it blends into your hair a lot better and is lighter so you could try that and see how you like it before buying something like this.

I have naturally black hair and I use this product on my hair. Do not use it directly on your hair though and use sparingly. The powder is hard to shake off in that case. I put some on my hands and kind of "mist" the powder onto my hair, brush through it, and also do some flipping action too. I only use it on my roots mostly too.

Yes, I have dark brown hair. It won't show, you apply it only to the scalp only, and then brush your scalp, it absorbs well and quickly. I have tried regular powder (which will work in a bind) but it shows in my hair somewhat and needs lots of brushing and fluffing. the key is the tiny nozzle which you could refill with rice or tapioca starch.

That's a personal preference. Spray is supposedly easier to apply, but dry shampoos like this one last longer and are more environmentally sound. Spray dry shampoos have a chemically smell when applied and the dry powders like this one smell more natural . . . Like Baby powder with hints of lemon balm.

Usually they are filled completely at the factory and the powder settles as the bottle ships to its final destination. The same appears when you open a bag of potato chips. It's just "settling". And yes, all the bottles are like that.

Yes, it does. My hair does the exact same thing you are describing. This product does not offer huge amounts of volume on it's own but if you combine it with a bit of teasing at your roots-that should help. Also what I do to help-"re-wavy" my hair the next day is I'll use this dry shampoo and then I'll lightly mist it with some rose water at the ends and scrunch it up. If that doesn't work-turn on your 1-inched barrel curling iron and randomly give it a few spiral curls. Dump your head upside down and lightly spritz with hair spray-tease at the roots-and you're all set.

I have naturally wavy hair that I usually style by either straightening or curling it. I have found that this product does not really promote volume.

I purchased the small bottle a couple years ago and I use it quite often. It surprisingly lasts a long time even if you use a lot each time.

Your dad can probably get more than a hundred uses out of this small bottle. All it takes for my (female) head is about 5 shakes per application. You want just the thinnest veil of powder. If your scalp feels gritty, you are using too much product. It helps to disperse the dry shampoo on your head by ruffling the hair with your fingers, then brush through your hair.

I just bought mine about a month ago and it's not even a quarter done with. The bottle will last a long time...especially if your dad has short hair!

A little goes a long way with this stuff, as you only need to use it on the scalp, concentrating on applying just little dabs of it to areas that are the oiliest (around the forehead, for example).

I've been buying the 1 oz size and find it lasts me about 5-6 months with almost daily use.

assuming he has short hair he will only need to puff the bottle 2ce for usage. if its shoulder length or longer - 4 times. if he uses it 2ce a week, it will probably last 1.5-2 months atleast. (1.5 being for longer hair, 2 months if he has short hair)

a little goes a looong way. gently tap the tip to the scalp on a part, repart hair and repeat. Do not squeeze, it will apply way too much.

Question
New or different formula?
I'm confused at how the smaller size of 1 oz. for $11 hasn't gotten as good reviews as this one of 2.5 oz for $19. Also, on this one, the reviews just started recently and there are less than 20 of them. Also, is there a difference between the "To Go" version that is $11 and the regular version at $11 and $19? Hmmm.

Probably because more people buy the larger one, $8 more for the full size??? why not??? It's really good dry shampoo, not drying at all and doesn't leave hair sticky and hard to brush like others.

The powder is better than the spray. The smaller powder bottle is just that - a smaller bottle. I bought both and then I fill up the smaller bottle using the larger one for travelling when I run out.

Hi - yes there is a difference b/n the small To-Go size and the Regular size. I have the regular size. For both, shake well before dispensing, to add air volume to the product, it will be lighter, easier to work with and last longer. I dispense into my hand, then work through my hair. Seems to work best for me.

There is no difference between the smaller version and the larger version. The larger version lasts for months and after using it in the morning, I don't need to reapply so I don't use the "to go" size.

Hi~ I truly don't think there is a difference. I just wrote a review stating that I always buy the smaller size since it's great for travel (you never know when you'll get to do a full shampoo on a trip) or for the gym if you have no time for a wet shampoo after working out. The one thing I did notice is that occasionally the nozzle gets clogged. I don't know if that's only the case for the smaller-sized bottle. But it doesn't take too much to unclog it. If I'm short on time, I just remove the nozzle and dump a little into my hands to distribute and comb through. To me, the smaller size still best suits my needs. I hope this helps!

There is no difference in product between the different sizes, other than price. Maybe some of the reviewers find the price of the 1.0 oz a bit steep compared to the larger size, but the product lasts forever!!! I like the smaller size because I can take it with me anywhere!

Question
Condition w/????
I have never before used a dry shampoo and want to try it to help my hair retain its natural moisture. Was wondering if it is necessary to apply some sort of leave in conditioner after dry shampooing??? I HAVE to use conditioner after I wash my hair in the shower! Thanks!!! :-)

Do not add leave-in conditioner after dry shampoo, it defeats the purpose. If I was to add anything after, it would be a light glossing type product, but only to the ends or where I had too, not all over.

You shouldn't need to condition after using this product. It's just a light powder meant to soak up extra oil in your hair to keep it from looking greasy. Unlike wet shampoo, it won't strip anything off your hair.

You do not use conditioner, the product is applied only to scalp to absorb oil, so your hair is not affected. If your hair gets dry after a day or two (or more) of not shampooing or conditioning, you should use a spray on leave in product. It doesn't show on your scalp at all, but you will not feel clean like after a fresh shampoo. Your hair will not look greasy though.

No-you don't need to condition your hair. If your hair is dry and feels frizzy-like mine : ) What I do is I put this product on my hands-then rub it briskly through my roots-wherever it feels oily or sticky from styling build up. Then I touch up with a straightening iron. And then here's the awesome trick for the frizzies-using a strong-hold hair spray I spray a straight edged tooth brush and brush it over the parts of my hair that are frizzy-that way I don't get a huge build up of hair spray-and the tooth brush grabs and smooths all the frizzies! : ) Hope this helps!!

You don't need to use any form of leave-in conditioner with this product. It goes on your dry hair and eliminates oil . It's not hard on your hair so there is no need for extra conditioning.

i always use a light spray in conditioner, but I have very fine hair, so over conditioning for me can be an issue. It is more effective on your scalp, rather than all over hair, so i wouldn't worry too much about that unless you are dandruff prone.

No, you do not need to follow this product with any sort of conditioner. You mostly will use this product on days when you don't wash your hair--because you shouldn't everyday--and you can use a styling cream ot whatever you prefer to smooth down your ends after you brush it through your hair.

Definitely limit what products you use AFTER applying the dry shampoo. If you have any build up of the dry shampoo, hair spray or gels may make the build up more obvious. Usually you can run your fingers through your hair to work out any excess but styling product may make this more difficult.

No need for conditioning after this quick fix. The powder sops up most of the shine, but it doesn't strip moisture.

Hi~ My hair tends to be normal to dry, which sounds like yours(?). I don't think you're supposed to use a ton of the Pronto Dry Shampoo. Add some to the roots and a light fluff of it through the body of your hair (then comb or brush it) and that should do the trick. If you think your hair feels dried out after this, you can always apply some leave-in conditioner (or conditioning product of your choice) to the ends of your hair. I would only use a conditioning product that says it can be applied to dry hair or else it will look gloppy. I guess it depends on how your hair feels after using the Pronto Dry Shampoo. Mine usually doesn't need anything, but then again I always apply MorrocanOil to my hair after I do my wet shampoos and this will usually hold me until my next wet shampoo. Good luck!
