Thumbs down TIGI Rockstar Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo

Bought the large can and it worked for exactly 2 uses (and I didn't spray much on for either use.) I thought maybe my can was defective, but nope, many people have had the same luck on Amazon.
Amazon.com: TIGI Rockaholic - Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo 6.3 oz.: Health & Personal Care

The product itself works well, but for $20 a bottle its rediculous...don't know if there is a faulty mechanism in the can, but I usually get a few months of usage from a hairspray that size.

This is the very reason why I don't like the sprays and I like the powder kind.

Let us know how this turns out, please? I use Rene Furterer dry shampoo and have to say, dry shampoo in general has CHANGED my life. I like the Rene Furterer one, but that's 24 bucks a can- which lasts me about a month. I was wanting to try the TIGI one!

I remember in the thread where this was recommended, I posted that the reviews I read all said they got only a couple of uses from it. I read those reviews on Amazon and a few other places I can't remember. But if you Google search, they should pop up.

This seems to be how this product works or at least a VERY common issue with it. I agree about sprays. I'm not too fond of the spray tanning lotions in the can. They don't last very long either.

Marcano: I'll let everyone know how the new can works. The problem is that there are still faulty ones being sold in stores, so make sure to ask the store whether or not they have pulled the defective ones from the shelves.

DaisyDuke: I bought it b/c I remembered it being recommended here, but I must not have read your review.
I don't know if there is a store in my area that sells it and I am hesitant about buying it online again.

I was excited because I got a new can in the mail from Tigi on Friday. Used it once and the can is empty today

Ok I am bumping this because I just read about the most awesome thing in InStyle magazine. Instead of using dry shampoo it said to put astringent on your hairline and at your roots with a cotton ball. I didnt have any so I tried it with my Aveda exfolianting toner. I pretty much saturated my roots with it then blowdryed it dry. I swear it looked like i had just washed and dryed my hair. Amazing!!!

So it just soaks up the oil like when you use it on your face? I can't wait to try this!

Interesting...I might try it.

I don't think alcohol is good for your hair though, is it?

If you use it a lot, no. It's very very drying to the hair and scalp, and I think if you remove too much oil, your body will over produce to compensate for it. Then you'll have hair that is oilier than what you started with. I'm not a professional, just going with what hair knowledge I have haha

I tried this brand of dry shampoo recently and it's decent. It is cheaper than the Tigi one and it lasts a lot longer.

Buy Algemarin Dry Shampoo Online at drugstore.com

I would think it would be okay as long as you only use it when your hair is super greasy on the roots. So many other hair products have alcohol as well its hard to avoid. I am totally going to try this.

Lightbulb

I use silica powder on my roots. I store it in a sifter jar. The powder is very fine so I covered up the holes with tape and only left one open. When your hair is oily, just put a little bit of the powder in your hand and finger it through your hair at the roots. Cheap, and it works!

Yeah I would not do it all the time and I only used it on the roots. I was too lazy to wash my hair today so decided to try it and it worked great.

I'm going to go ahead and predict that I'll be feeling lazy tomorrow so I'll just have to do this

I will need to try that! I read a bunch of reviews of dry shampoos on Sephora.com and all of them had some people saying that the can was empty after 2-3 uses. I bought a cheap brand at Wal Mart and it works OK but not nearly as good as the couple uses I got out of the Tigi.

I love the Tigi smell but not so much the amount for the money.

I use Rene Furterer. I try to use it sparingly, and with almost 'every-other-day' usage it will last between 4-6 weeks a can. I'm not crazy about the scent, but I will say- it WORKS and I've been using it for over a year now. I have found it to work better than any other brand I've tried.

Just wanted to let everyone know that cans of this dry shampoo are STILL defective. The store I work at has complained to the manufacturer and so far it doesn't seem like they've solved the problem. I've only been working at this place for about a month and have had to return/exchange a few. We've been selling a lot of the KMS dry shampoo and Kenra also recently started making one. I tell basically everyone to stay away from the Tigi.

I've been using KMS Hairplay makeover spray and it works fairly well. It's $19 (Canadian) and this can has lasted several months. I have really oily hair and usually wash it every day so I just use it in the evenings if I'm going out. I had been wanting to try the TIGI Rockaholic but it sounds like I should give it a pass
