This dry shampoo is easy to use. I have never used a powder dry shampoo before. It is just like using baby powder. You just sprinkle a LITTLE about 6 to 8 inches from your hair and then brush it out. The first time I used it to much came out and I couldn't get it brushed out right and it made my hair look grey and dry. When you use it if you squeeze the bottle just a little and don't open the top the whole way it works great. It gives your hair little volume after you brush it through.
