Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo

The other reviewers who think baby powder works just the same must have blonde hair, because it absolutely does not work the same on dark hair. Oscar Blandi's dry shampoo has a pleasant scent and doesn't leave a noticeable residue. Since the powder is white, I was suprised at how easily it disappeared into my black hair. It gave my roots body and absorbed all the oil. I applied it by rubbing the powder between my palms, then combed through my roots with my fingers/palms. This method prevents the product from clumping. I love this product and highly recommend it, especially for brunettes!
After reading the reviews here, I applied it lightly with my fingers instead of directly from the bottle. It looked infinitely better! A very small amount of this product goes a long way, and the little bottle has now lasted me about 8 months of every-other-day use. Also, when applied lightly the smell is very mild, just enough to make your hair smell clean.
Before getting this I'd been using dry shampoo sprays (including Oscar Blandi), they're less effective and you need to use a lot more product. This is much better, I will definitely buy it again when this bottle finally runs out.
I feel like I should remove a star just because their instructions are so horribly wrong, but I like this product so much I can't bring myself to do it.
I also have DARK black hair - if there's such a thing - and I don't have an issue with powder residue. I think they key is to apply the powder directly onto your scalp and then rub.
This product has been pretty miraculous for me. It seriously absorbs all the oil and makes my hair look like it's just been washed. It's expensive, for sure, but worth it. I don't apply too much, I rub it in with my fingertips and then I brush with a boar bristle brush.
Other reviewers complained about the smell - it IS indeed strong but not at all unpleasant. I kind of liked it!
I think I'm going to order another bottle right now!!
- Smells nice (I like citrus-y scents)
- It has a nice nozzle so you can control more of where the powder goes
- It does it's job and nicely soaks up all oils
- I'm blonde, and this leaves my hair dull and dusty looking. I could only imagine what it would look like in hair even a touch darker than mine.
- I recall someone's review saying "don't touch your hair because it will leave a cloud of dust"- boy is that ever true. I even tried putting it on the night before to give any excess powder time to fall off, no such luck.
- Did I mention how dusty it is? It gets underneath my nails and irks me all day long...
So, compared to the price of baby powder I would have to say that it's just not worth it. I was hoping it would look a lot nicer than it does. However, it definitely smells cleaner and does its job.
Here's the method that works best for me: Apply a small amount into your hand and rub your palms together, so that the powder is all over your hands. Then flip your head over and brush the sides of the hair with your palms, to make sure a light dusting of the product touches all the oily areas. I usually have to do this step twice - once for the back of the head and once for the front. Then gently massage the scalp with your fingertips to get all the product evenly dispersed. It won't show up on dark hair if you apply it this way.
This product works best when applied to the hands first. It shouldn't be applied directly from the applicator to the head!
Another tip: Try to keep the product close to the scalp because it can make your ends feel dry.
