It is not for or against color treated hair. You can use it if your hair is natural or if it has been chemically treated.

Rub it in like you would shampoo, that really helps get the white tinge out of your hair.

It is really easy to use. You just squeeze it in the area you want and rub it in either with your hands or I often use a comb when using it for volume. That is it pretty simple, give it a try.

I was a bit nervous to purchase it at first because of the price, but my friend (a hairstylist) recommended it. I use it to get more body and to make the roots of my hair look cleaner on my in-between days of not washing it. I like it best if you shake some of the powder into your palm and then kind of ruffle it through your hair/roots. It makes the powder go on more evenly if you put it in your hand first rather than just dumping it straight to your scalp. It also works well if you put some in your hair before you go to bed, and it makes it easier to work with in the morning. I have naturally light hair but I do have a lot of blonde highlights, so you cant see the powder at all when I put it in. I am not sure how it works/looks with light hair, but I really love this product!

I shake it into my hand, rub my hands together, and then rub/shake it through my roots. Use a small amount and build up from there.

Part your hair at 4+ lengths along your head, and shake a tiny bit into each part. Try to stick close to your scalp, then use your fingers to ruffle your hair - that's all it takes for me! It disappears, gives great volume and doesn't feel heavy at all

It's a great product and the best part is only a small bit comes out of the container at once. I usually start with a small amount, rub it in my hands then apply it to my hair. Then I brush it out once I've raked it through my hair. Better to start with a small amount then add in a bit more if needed!

I really suggest to section your hair in small parts and put the powder in there and do the whole head like this, but don't rub and massage it right away - the more you let the powder sit in your hair (in the way you initially put it there) the more oils will be absorbed! And if you are confused on how to put it in the hair the think of it like lightly sprinkling your salad with some salt :)

part hair at different increments along the scalp and add a few shakes along the scalp line of each part. once the top pif the head is finished, add some on the crown and by your ears. let it absorb for a couple of minutes then massage the powder into your scalp and hair, and voila! volumized and fresh looking hair!

Question
Is it good with dark hair?
I have very dark brown hair that gets super oily. I also dye my hair to cover the gray so it is tragic that dry shampoo makes my roots look gray! I've tried dry shampoo for dark hair and it was sticky and rubbed off and was nasty.
I am always looking for a better dry shampoo that will not lighten my hair. Is this the one?

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with dark hair. If you really aren't careful about incorporating it in thoroughly, the resulting look is a dull, gray residue. After applying it in hurry in a poorly lit environment, I was mortified to see what appeared to be a huge, Cruella Deville-ish streak when I saw my reflection later at work in the restroom. It looked like I'd just got finished cleaning a chimney or something!

My hair is highlighted blonde and it slightly lightens it. Since the power is a light color, I would imagine it would lighten where you put it, at least a tad. You can lesson the effect by blending well. Good luck.

As long as you work it in, I don't find it to have a white cast. A lot of product doesn't come out all at once (like in an aerosol) so I think that helps too.

aerosol spray or distribute by hand?
Is this product an aerosol spray or do you distribute it by hand/sprinkle on? I'm asking because I usually don't like the aerosol spray. I've been using the dry shampoo by Henry Bendel that you sprinkle on and comb through and was wondering if this was similar? Thanks!
