Questions & Answers for ALTERNA Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo in Sheer Blossom or Mango Coconut Scent

Question
Is this really "translucent" or is it just white powder like all the rest?
I tried this on in store and it was hard to tell if it sprayed white powder (because I tried on another white dry shampoo before it). I have black hair and it would be awesome to have a dry shampoo that didn't show up in my roots!

Like all dry shampoo is does infact have the white powder effect.
BUT the proper way of using it goes along way in avoiding the "white" on your hair.
The best way of using it is to hold it further away and spray fast/short in the areas you need it. (quick quick quick)
That way it keeps things clear of color and you can get the results you want.
I have got the white powder in my hair by using it more like a hairspray when I first got it because I didnt know myself. For me I love this stuff if i keep the sprays short and sweet!
Good luck

It is a white powder however, it goes on sheer/clear.

It isn't like over-powered with a white spray, but it does make my roots look lighter. But I like it because I have blonde hair. Not sure how it would show up on dark hair. I notice that a lighter color only shows up when I use a lot...which I do because I like the lighter color it adds. I think it would be necessary to at least try it out tho. I really like this brand.

It sprays on clear and dries to a powdery white. The key, and what I'm not sure a ton of reviewers realize, is that you have to BRUSH IT OUT thoroughly after it turns white. Turn your head upside down, and brush it out so that the powder all falls out, taking with it the excess oil.

Yes, there will be some powdery residue when you use it. I have dark brown hair, and I find the best way to remove it is with a boar-bristle brush, and maybe a bit of blow-drying.

I found it to be better than others, but far from translucent. I'm dark brunette.

It is transparent for the most part. I have brown hair with blond highlights and it does make my highlights look more vibrant. I cannot see any white powder and I use it every other day.
