Wish they made a darker colored dry shampoo,
This review is from: Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray, Beautiful Clean, 5 Ounce (Health and Beauty)
Overall this is a pretty darn good dry shampoo. I've tried several. I prefer the aerosol as opposed to the foams. The foams seem to make the hair a bit greasier. Anyway I stopped shampooing my hair daily. But some days I do put product in my hair and the next morning I want a fresh start without rewashing my hair. So, I have tried some dry shampoos. This has a great smell very citrusy, sort of pineappley.
Anyway, best bet, just spray your roots. Shake the can, hold it 12 to 15 inches from your head, spray your roots. You can massage it in a little. Be careful not to damage your hair cuticles by over rubbing the hair. Then I like to brush the rest of the dry shampoo through my hair using my boar bristle brush. (I like the Isinis brush). The one problem I have with dry shampoos is that the dry shampoos usually come out sort of a white powder color. I have dark brown almost black hair and when you spray a white powder to my roots, no matter how well I brush it in, I inevitably miss a little and it either looks like I'm going gray or I have hair discoloration.
Overall, this works great. My only issue is that I wish they would make a dark hair color variety. I believe Batiste dry shampoo makes a colored variety, also a good brand for dry shampoo. But I really do like how this brand smells and how accessible this is.

I heard that if you use this the night before then it absorbs some of the oil at night and doesn't leave that chalky look the next morning.

The hair powder always makes my dark hair and scalp white... I have tried many dry shampoos. I then tried non-powder dry shampoo, the name is Faciano. It works well with no residue.. My hair is the same color after using it and keeps very clean without grease.

At $22 for a 5 oz can of Faciano I'll stick to the Suave. Suave also has a dry conditioner that you can spray on after the dry shampoo. It seemed to help add shine after the dry shampoo and also reduces that chalky look.

I didn't know about the dry conditioner! Thank you.

I've heard cocoa powder works well for dark hair!

Batiste makes a formula for brunettes. It should be much less noticeable than white and it's scored great reviews.
