Hair refresher/powder or dry shampoo- Tigi?

Has anyone tried a product like this? I was looking at the Stila one,
stila cosmetics - jade blossom hair refresher
or something like this:
Sephora: Ojon Rub-Out Dry Cleanser: Normal

Any thoughts, opinions, or suggestions?

I dont know about those two but the bumble and bumble one is TERRIBLE. It stinks and leaves your hair so sticky like that spray on color you put in your hair at halloween. Try baby powder Kate.

Hmmmm I am interested to know if these work too. I wash my hair daily and sometimes my hair looks a little oily near the roots. When I go out at night I have to wash my hair again sometimes, this type of product might help me.

Anybody here have any input on these products?

I have some LUSH deodorant powder, and it works great for absorbing extra oil in my hair (I guess thats because the main ingredient is corn starch).Plus it smells nice and its only $6-$7.

Baby powder works pretty well but if you have darker hair leaves it looking a weird slightly grayish shade.

There is Pssssst! spray dry shampoo which IMO is the BEST. I had oily hair for years (would be oily be evening!) and this stuff is great. A bit hard to find.

I used another really expensive tinted hair powder (Paul Mitchell, perhaps?) and it didn't work half as well.

I don't have the problem that often anymore, but since I have strawberry blond hair I generally just use baby powder combed through.

baby powder is my life saver, but i have naturally blonde hair so i can use a lot and its not noticable...but my roomate who has super dark dark brown hair uses it too now, but she just has to do it sparingly and brush it out. You should giive it a try/practice before you go out in public first

I actually just bought Oscar Blandi's Pronto Dry Shampoo from Sephora. One of my friends uses it and says it is good. I'm skeptical but I thought I would give it a try. I will let you know how it works out

I use the Oscar Blandi stuff and actually really like it. It has a nice fresh scent so that if you feel like your hair might be stinky from not washing for a day (like I do), it helps alleviate that feeling.

Note: I use the powder as the spray stuff I used up WAY too quickly and it didn't seem to do as good of a job.

I've also purchased some Psssst (more s? less s? heh) to use.

I like them both, and they do a good job. Don't expect miracles though, 'cause it's not just like washing your hair. Towards the end of the day (if you use this instead of washing) your hair will look pretty oily and the powder can make it feel heavy and sometimes itchy.

My suggestion, especially if you have dark hair, is really get it in the roots, use your finger tips to massage it around and fluff the hair, and then brush brush brush.

I also find that using hairspray at the roots helps to suck up some of the oilies. I mostly just use it on the front of my hair/bangs to dry up the oil there where it's the most noticible. I also am only using a very light hold spray and then brushing it out.

babypowder/cornstarch are difficult to use on my hair, because of the color (dark red.) i've tried the brush it out trick, but it still looks very dull , and my hair is so fine that extra hairspray just smooshes it down.

I use the Oscar Blandi Pronto dry shampoo from sephora, and although it is $20 i think, it lasts quite a bit of time (i've had mine for a year already) and it works very well. The scent smells really good too! I'm sure it would work better on brown and blonde hair instead of black, because if you overdose on powder it turns your hair to a kinda greyish hue.

Lol baby powder only tends to work on blonde hair.. i used to use it loads when I was blonde. Now Im a brunette it doesn't work anymore as it goes gray!! So I bought Tony & Guy "Refresh It" Dry Shampoo and it's awesome, you like spray it and the massage it in a bit and it just absrobs all the oil up right away! and leaves it smelling nice, its awesome!

+ To the person who said about the Lush product.. is this just a powder or is it a spray?! I may give that one a go, as its an excuse to visit Lush!

I use baby powder sometimes and i dont get grey roots. You have to use just a small amount and work it into the roots with a fine tooth comb. Then i blast the cold air setting on my hair dryer on the spot for a few seconds to get rid of the access powder. Works pretty well and my hair is BLACK.

Y'all will feel my pain here ... I'm currently waiting out my 72 hrs with no washing after my TR straightening. 36 hours approx and I already feel gross. I'll probably resort to baby powder tomorrow after I do everything I need to for the day ... gray is better than gross!
