Great for a curly girl like me!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TRESemme Fresh Start Waterless Foam Shampoo, 6 oz (Health and Beauty)
Whoa nelly the reviews on this product had me scared I'd wind up with a sodden mess of oil on my head. But, because I'm crazy like a fox (is that the saying?), I went ahead and purchased anyway. Why oh why, do you ask, would I purchase even with the negative reviews? One answer. Most of the reviews I read that were negative talked about brushing it through the hair and/or didn't indicate that it was used on curls. The ones that were used on curls seemed to actually be mildly impressed with the product. Being a curly girl myself, I threw caution to the wind and went for it (it also helps I had an Amazon giftcard so it didn't seem like I was actually "paying.")
For me, the verdict is in and this foam is NOT-GUILTY (of making me look like I've worked over a fryer for 10 hours).
Let me say, I don't think the other reviewers are liars, I just don't think this is the right product for their hair type. My hair is curly, a little coarse, and fairly dry. I don't have the oily problem if I don't shampoo for a day (or three). I have used the TIGI Rockaholic dry shampoo and the Batiste dry shampoo as well. They work OK for me but not nearly as well as this. Part of the problem is that I just can't "brush the product through my hair." COME ON. If you are a curly like me you know there is no brushing of the hair after it is dry. Well, unless you look forward to an appearance akin to the bride of Frankenstein or delight in scaring the crud out of small children. But, I digress.....
In sum, for me, a long-haired curly person (geez, I sound like a hippie), it worked great. I wore my hair in a high pony for bed, let it out in the morning, pumped 3 squirts (ick, I hate the word squirt) in my hands and gently zhuzhed it on my ends. Then, a few more squirts (seriously, I need a better word for squirt), and I zhuzhed a bit more all over. Perfect. Didn't leave my hair with anything white on it and didn't leave it feeling dry or crunchy which is normally what happens when I use a spray dry shampoo.
So, on the correct hair type, I say 5 stars (and, anything that lets me type "zhuzhed" twice has to be awesome!).

Your review reminds me of what I would say! I didn't really need to read the reviews since I have used this product many times and just can't find it in stores anymore. I think it refreshes my hair so well, and love it during those humid days.
Also, I would say pumped instead of squirt haha. Although I suppose this is way too late for that...
