Not impressed

Note – this is the first dry shampoo I’ve used, so I have nothing to compare this with except for the regular Suave shampoo I use every day. Normally I love Suave products, but I won’t be buying this again.I’m not sensitive to fragrances, normally, but this really doesn’t smell good – and worse, because it’s a "dry" shampoo, the smell stays with you all day. By the end of the day I was ready for a normal wash just to get rid of the odor!I work out daily, and wear my hair quite short, so I would expect not to need a lot of this product. Just guessing, but I think maybe this container will last oh, maybe 3 or 4 uses, if I were going to use the rest. It seemed to take more than I expected to get my hair feeling clean and ready to style, especially considering that my hair is very fine and thing. I don’t know though – maybe I just had a lot of sweat and product already in my hair, this may be "normal" for this kind of product.It did work, so it gets three stars – I sweat heavily when I work out, and was looking for a way that would allow me to avoid washing my hair every day. It did take the oil out of my hair, and styled up reasonably well without leaving my hair stringy or gummy feeling.All in all, I won’t buy this again and probably won’t try another "dry" shampoo product. While it works, there weren’t enough up sides to keep me coming back.

Works Like a Charm

What’s not to like about this amazing product? Plagued by dry hair and skin in the winter months, I chose this product in the hope that my dry, flyaway, damaged looking hair could go a couple of days without using soapy shampoo and warm water. At the same time, I wanted it to look and smell clean. This product works like a charm. Easy to use, the product leaves my hair looking clean and healthy and gives my tresses a break from harsher products.

You can’t beat the price

For a well priced dry shampoo, Suave Moroccan Infusion works it’s magic. I have come to depend on it’s great scent and volumizing results.

Janet Cheney, KS

Great dry shampoo

This dry shampoo is fantastic! It makes my hair feel smooth and clean even when I haven’t washed it in a couple of days. It’s very easy to use. My only complaint is that it has a rather strong scent that’s a little chemical-ly and lingers for a few minutes in the air and your hair after you apply.

Gives hair a lift between shampoos!

The last time I tried a dry shampoo was back in the 70’s – remember that stuff that left your hair white and scary looking? Well, since then, I haven’t tried another one until now. I had been very pleased with the Suave Moroccan products, so thought I might as well give this a shot. I’m so very glad I did!The dry shampoo is clay based and isn’t white, so it blends in more with your hair color. You hold your hair in parts, spray at the base where the oil is, rub in and style. Wow! This stuff took my dull, limp, and very fine hair and not only took the oily look away, but gave my hair lift and made it look like thicker and fuller as well! I am very pleased with the performance – so pleased that this one is now a staple in my hair care cabinet. It’s so nice to have on hand on those days you are late and don’t have time to do a full wash and style as well as on those days that your hair is just limp and grumpy. My only complaint is that the smell is a bit overpowering – nice smell but strong.

For some time now I’ve alternated between Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle and Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk when needing a dry shampoo and have been well pleased. However, I’m never averse to trying something new – who knows I might find something I like as well at a lower price or something I like even better. Didn’t work this time! While I will say that the Suave product did freshen my hair for me the odor it left overcame any positive results. I do like to wear a light fragrance but in this case the Suave odor won out.Now, if you’re not in close contact with others I would recommend it as the product does work as far as absorbing any oil goes, and it is reasonably priced. Sorry I cannot say whether the odor dissipated in a day or so because I washed my hair the next day and was happy to do so.

Katheryn Hunter, AR

Good for an emergency dry shampoo but the odor is so heavy!

This product does a good job of removing oil and some dirt in between shampoos. And I tried this and it was very effective for this, but I just about gagged when I smelled the very heavy perfume in this product. Since I am sensitive to heavy perfumes, I was concerned about this, yet it did not do any harm to my scalp. And after I opened up seveal windows, and after about 40 minutes, the strong scent began to fade.PROS:+ Effective on my fine and fly away hair. And this cleaned it well and my hair shined+ Great to use in a pinch or when I want a fresh shampooed look when I am in a hurry.MAJOR CONS:- HORRIBLE SCENT.- Personally, I cannot recommend this because of the heavy scent.

Kara Mc Lean, VA

Didn’t work for me

I’ve always wanted to try dry shampoo and trust the Suave name, but I was very disappointed with my results. First off, it wasn’t packaged very well and the cap was broken in several pieces. No padding at all, just stuffed in a padded envelope. There should have been something around the cap at least, if not bubble wrap around the whole bottle.I followed the directions and tried it three separate times, but I was disappointed each time. I have oily hair, so used it on day two after shampooing. My hair looked even greasier than before application, and became weirdly fly-away at the same time. Honestly, I’ve gotten better results from using baby powder.

Marjorie Wall Lake, IA

For oily, fine haired ladies – not the best

To give you an idea of my hair type, I have semi-oliy very fine hair. I can usually get through a day if I wash my hair in the morning, but any longer than 24 hours later my hair starts to look greasy. I also have a pretty short bob, around chin length. I am an avid dry shampoo user so I don’t have to wash my hair every day, and Suave’s regular dry shampoo in the silver and with yellow top is my favorite cheap go to.I thought this version was just ok. It was certainly better than other brands that I have used that make my hair feel "crusty," but as a lady with baby fine hair, it still didn’t do the job well enough. It seemed alright at first – went in easily, ok smell, but by the end of the day my hair looked greasier than it would with other dry shampoos. I thought that I might have just not used as much, but I started noticing it every time I choose this specific kind.Over all, I would get this kind again if the regular Suave one was not available, or if the only other option was tresseme (not my fav.) or some other brand I was not familiar with.

Louisa Kingmont, WV

It works! But with a strong fragrance.

I tired this on my own hair and also on my daughters. My hair has been lightened from dark brown to light blonde, so I tend to not have issues with oily hair. My hair just needs washed to make it light and fluffy again. My daughter however is another story.She’s 13 and she has to wash her hair every single day with a strong clarifying shampoo, or else her hair looks like it hasn’t been washed for a week. She has thinner hair than I do, and it’s a medium brown color. So the oil in her hair really shows up. She doesn’t just get oily hair at the roots. Her hair gets this greasy look all the way down to the tips. So if there was any test for a product, her hair would be it.She washed her hair Thursday before school, and then there was no school on Friday. So she skipped her Friday shower and on Saturday I sprayed this Suave spray into her hair to see how well it would work. It took a bit, but it sucked up a good amount of the oil. It made her hair about 80% better. I was shocked actually. Her hair looked like it had been doused in cooking oil, but this spray made her hair fluffy and looked clean. Not as good as it does right after a shower, just pretty darn close.The one drawback is when spraying this, the fragrance is a bit overwhelming. It will fill a room. However the fragrance gets more into the air and less into the hair. So your hair doesn’t actually smell as strong as the air does when your done. This is pretty neat product and can be really helpful for those days when your hair is in need of a shower but you can’t get one. I plan to get a few cans of this to keep on hand for my daughter. Her hair has such oil problems she almost needs a shower half way through the day. A few spritz of this and the oil is toned down and her hair gets is nice and fluffy again.

Better than the powder.

When I was a kid, my mom used Psst on me and I loathed the feel of it in my hair. It made my hair feel rubbery and flocked and strange and not quite stiff but still very "helmety" as it didn’t move like clean hair.Fast forward a few decades, and I keep a bottle of powder (cornstarch based, fragranced) "dry shampoo" in my beauty stash for emergencies that arise when my hair is even a few minutes past regularly scheduled washing. The dry stuff works as a "patch" of sorts, but it is so messy and really looks very vivid when I have my hair darker and I really like to wear black and charcoal grey so not a great match.Suave Moroccan Infusion Dry Shampoo is like the best of both worlds- it works and makes hair look refreshed. It doesn’t look "day of washing" clean, but that’s a good thing for me as my "day after washing" hair is typically my best hair. It doesn’t make hair look or feel like it has a mask on it. After brushing it through, my hair moved like it had been salon styled fairly recently and though it was still out of whack because I had slept on it, with clips in it, I could put it in a ponytail or twist and not look like I was resorting to those styles because my hair was misbehaving or dirty. It looked like a positive fashion choice.The fragrance is fine, though it does stick around it isn’t more or less fragrant than other hair styling products.I found that this also works well to add texture and volume if you just spritz it in little zaps under your hair (lift pieces of hair up and zap) and don’t brush it afterwards. It worked well on my medium, coppery red hair, but on darker roots it might show up as a whitish cast.

Works REALLY well, but the scent is overpowering

This item was given to me for my review.Suave Moroccan Infusion Dry Shampoo is the best dry shampoo I have tried. The spray, if you follow the directions and do not hold too close to your head, goes on in a fine mist. You do not want to hold it in one spot too long, or you will get skunk stripes, but past the first spray, I got the hang of it. It gets rid of the oily look for day not washed that day hair, and gave me really nice body. The texture is a bit odd if you are to run your hands through it, but I needed it to just look good for the day. It did. What’s more, even though I was running around and sweating, it still worked and into the next morning (when I ran, not walked, to the nearest shower). Basically, the product worked much better than I had hoped or experienced with other such products. The problem, however, is that the scent is so strong, it gave me a headache. The scent is not unpleasant, just strong. I would not recommend this product if you are chemically sensitive to smells, suffer from migraines or do not want people to know you are coming before you get there. Would I use this product? Only if I could wash it out in a short space of time. However, if scent is not a problem for you, then you might really like this dry shampoo.

Camilla Centerville, NY

Nice not to have to wet shampoo everyday

This is to be sprayed into hair instead of washing it, for days when that is convenient. This blasts fine powder into hair, and the propane and butane turn to foam and then disappear. One’s hair is left non-greasy.It’s important to work this into hair before the powder sets dry. This includes aluminum starch octenylsuccinate, an anti-caking agent, and silicon dioxide (silica) which is found in quartz.

Lelia Winthrop, MN

Works Well

I’m usually not a huge fan of dry shampoos but this the Suave is the nicest one that I’ve tried. I recently did some damage to my hair with over processing so I have been trying to go longer between shampoos to avoid drying my hair out even more. I have been using the Suave dry shampoo once or twice a week.The nicest things about the Suave as compared to some other brands I’ve tried like Tresemme is that it doesn’t have an unpleasant scent and it does not dispense that white powder all over my hair. I can’t see this in my hair once I’ve sprayed it on. It does have scent but the scent is not unpleasant.It works well. I don’t have oily hair but since I’m waiting between shampoos, my scalp gets a yucky feeling and that feeling goes away as soon as I spray the Suave dry shampoo.

Suave Moroccan Infusion Dry Shampoo

I was disappointed with this. After using it my hair looked dull and was completely lifeless and it wasn’t all that dirty to begin with. It made my hair look darker and dingy. My hair is blonde, almost white. I won’t be using this again. Sure would have been nice instead of having to wash my hair every day, especially in the winter when it is so dry all the timer. I still had static electricity in my hair after using this.

Rosetta Jonesboro, IL

I’ll just wash my hair…

I tried this dry shampoo on a morning before work instead of washing my hair in the shower as usual. My nearly shoulder-length hair is color-treated and thin and doesn’t tend to be oily, and the color is a medium to dark brown (a 5 or 6 color). I followed the directions on the can and to be honest, it took longer to apply the product than it would have to shampoo, condition and blow dry! Taking each section, lifting it up, and spraying at the root and crown area, then brushing it out, then styling. My hair was still sort of lifeless and the worst part was, when I looked closely, I could see a whitish residue on my hair. That doesn’t work for me. I didn’t get the body I usually have with my clean hair and my naturally curly hair didn’t revive with the spray.Perhaps this product would be better for those with lighter colored hair and who, for some reason, can’t take a few extra minutes to wash and dry — maybe those who have really thick, oily hair and who might have an urgent need when traveling perhaps.After using this, I’ve decided that when my hair is dirty, I’ll just wash it as usual everyday instead of using this product!

Only Good For Small Areas

The first time I used this product, I sprayed as directed, and my dark hair was covered by white powder. I had to brush and brush to get it out, and afterwards not only was my hair tacky feeling, but it was dull, dull, dull. Truly, every bit of shine was sucked out of it. And my gosh, the scent! It was lingering and overpowering. I had to wash this disgusting mess out of my hair immediately. I was already thinking of the negative review I was going to write, but a few days later I decided to give it another try.This time, I used it only at the temples where my hair gets greasy–the underneath portion next to my scalp. To my surprise, it really did soak up the oil. Not the same as a real shampoo, but if I’m having a lazy Sunday or the like, I can skip the daily shampoo and not look bad.One thing I want to point out is this shampoo comes out in a very forceful aerosol stream that sends huge clouds of product into the air. There isn’t any way to escape it and I hack and cough. If you have asthma or other respiratory problems, I strongly urge you not to purchase this.Overall, this is ok for spot cleaning but terrible if you want to spray it all over.

Adequate, But Very Strong Smell …

I have experimented with a number of dry-shampoos. Like many women, it is one way to extend a pricey blow-out. Additionally, since we live in a semi-rural, resort-community in snowy Pennsylvania, we lose our electric all-too frequently. Dry shampoos work well in such emergency situations. I have tried more expensive ones that made me look like a member of Louis XIV royal court (super powder weirdness) … but my favorite one is SUPER inexpensive and amazingly soft/effective:Garnier Fructis Volume Extend Instant Bodifier Dry Shampoo for Fine or Flat Hair, 3.4 Ounce. So, I know a bit about these products and feel comfortable in sharing my experience with this product.With this in mind …Pros:-Inexpensive-Does not make hair terribly stiff (I triedVictoria’s Secret Fresh Body Dry Shampoo… it was as stiff as hairspray. YUCK!). Your hair will not be “touchably soft,” but it will not be egg-white stiff.-If you become a bit overzealous and you find some white spots, you can brush those out fairly effortlessly.Potential Cons:-Strong smell. REALLY strong smell. REALLY, REALLY strong smell.While this is a fine product, the smell makes it a little difficult to tolerate. If you are seeking a great dry shampoo and find yourself struggling with the smell of this Suave version, try the Garnier product recommended above. It is truly amazing!

Frances Monkton, VT

Isobutane & Propane, Flammable until fully dry. Do not use near heat, flame or while smoking.

Absorbs oils (then you brush it out) VERY easy to use: Shake can well while lifting sections of nonwet oily hair and spraying. When done I use a brush to apply thoroughly and evenly. Then I brush it all out and hair is less oily but soft and less weighed down. I real time saver when traveling.However the propane scent was too strong to tolerate. And my hair looked lifeless and dull – but less oily. I think everyone will be different depending on your hair type. I am glad I tried it but don’t see buying it again.I will try the Suave “Dry Shampoo” process to see if that works better “Spray directly on oily roots. Use heat from the palm of your hand to rub in excess powder. For oil-prone hair, apply on first day hair is washed to give extra volume and texture as well as to absorb oil throughout the day. For best use, shake product during application. If dispenser clogs, rinse in warm water.”

Leaves my hair looking and feeling great!

The Suave Moroccan Infusion Dry Shampoo I would recommend if you are needing your hair to be refreshed between washes without water. I have oily hair and if I don’t wash my hair every two days or so it starts looking undesirable and leaving my head feeling kinda icky. So between washes with water, I use this oil absorbing dry shampoo!Dry shampoo allows me to refresh and revitalize my hair quicker than a wash in shower ever could. It travels well leaving me without worry of leaking all over my stuff. It’s great to use when I don’t have a lot of time at home and need to be out and about on an errand or other engagement.This shampoo smells nice. It’s not overpowering in scent but just enough to recognize its present. Application is super simple, I basically shake the can, spray on lifted areas of my hair,massage through roots evenly, and to finish brush through my hair. Overall leaving my hair full of body, soft to the touch, and looking great between washes! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this product to anyone!

Itchy scalp

This isn’t for me. I actually ended up with my scalp feeling really itchy after both times I tried to use this. I didn’t really feel like it made a big difference with the oil either, though I didn’t have the dulling look or graying effect others have mentioned. I also found it really easy to apply this product, and especially since it’s aerosol, it was pretty easy to not accidentally overdo it. I really like the scent of this one, it’s subtle but still adds a little something. But considering the whole really itchy thing, it didn’t let me go longer between regular washings.

Tommie Bellville, TX

Not good

I have been pleasantly surprised with Suave products lately. I have tried some that really were lovely. This isn’t one of them.I love dry shampoo and use it to extend my blowouts. I have tried several brands and found almost all to work well. So I thought this would be a great place to save a little money. But the Suave dry shampoo was a disappointment.I noticed no difference between this and the Keratin infusion Dry Shampoo by Suave. They were both abysmal.I sprayed it in and got no benefit. I ended up having to use a lot more than I have of other brands to fluff up the greasies. Then the white powder clumped and flaked everywhere. No amount of brushing would distribute it or lighten it. Luckily for me, I have grey hair. But I tried both on my daughter to see how it worked on light brown hair. You could totally see it. I could not brush it away.

Jillian Painted Post, NY

Refreshes hair and smells nice.

I uses dry shampoo on a regular basis to freshen my hair in between washes and after the gym.This Suave dry shampoo is very nice.Gives a nice lift, and absorbs grease. As most of these formulas, it has a white cast. With my black, hair, if you hold it out far enough and give it a good brush after spraying, the whitish powder disappears.It has a strong linen/fresh laundry type smell. I liked it since it was a nice change from the usual floral scent.

Lara Normandy, TN

Smells great, works, but leaves a white residue

This dry shampoo smells amazing, and left my hair full of body. I loved the way my hair felt after using this and it made my hair easier to style. The only problem is, no matter how much I brushed, shook, fluffed, and even wiped my hair, there was a white residue that was really obvious in my hair. It was frustrating because it is such a great product, if only it was more invisible. Still, for the price it is a great product to have on hand. Use sparingly to cut down on visible powder in your hair.

Deirdre Dryden, ME

This is ok

I use dry shampoo primarily to give myself some extra volume on second day hair, and this left my hair kind of flat. It worked for the oiliness in my scalp but that’s not what I really need it for.Most dry shampoos have that powdery, dry shampoo smell. Which doesnt bother me for the most part. The scent in this Suave Moroccan one tries to cover up the powdery smell and instead just made something kinda nasty. And unnecessary. I don’t need perfume in my hair.My holy grail is the big sexy dry shampoo. That stuff works like a charm. But the feel of your hair is so….untouchable. But if volume is what you desire, then skip this. If you can handle the smell, and only need it for a slight root touchup then this might be perfect for you. I felt like it did soak up my minimal oiliness that I get on second day hair and left my hair still touchable. So that gets a big thumbs up from me!

Shelia Holbrook, AZ

Works great

I have an oily scalp and need to wash my hair every day. For the most part, I do– but of course, there are times when I just can’t. On those occasions, I use this dry shampoo. When you first spray it on, it makes your hair look gray, like a coating of gray powder. But in a minute or two, you can brush through it and the gray disappears… and so does the oil.I’m amazed by how this gives my hair lift, not just takes away the oil. It’s hard to tell the difference between when I’ve washed it and when I haven’t… the only real drawback aside from the cloud of aerosol is that it does leave a matte finish, so it takes away some of the natural shine. But I try to just concentrate it on the roots so that the length of my hair still has some shine.All in all, a great product at a good price.

Jodi Zanesfield, OH

I love the Moroccan Infusion line!

I love Suave’s Moroccan Infusion line. It has this great herbal, musky scent that lingers well. It may be too heavy for some, but those who love deep, rich scents will love it.Beyond the scent, this is your average dry shampoo. It serves its purpose well and is easy to use. It doesn’t brush out completely and leaves behind an invisible fine powder that can be felt if you run your hands thorough your hair.

Tracie Camp Creek, WV

Smells Nice But Can Be a Little Messy

I actually love the salon products created by Suave because you just can’t beat the price and overall, they really do work well. The thing I liked the most is that this product smelled really nice, and it made your hair smell really clean. The drawback is that if you don’t rub it in really well, it will leave your roots looking like they have been dusted with baby powder.Other good points is that it does make your hair feel thicker, and it doesn’t weigh your hair down either. A small amount of this product does go a long way, and you only need to put it on your roots anyway. It’s really great for oily hair because it does absorb the oil well, and it will keep you from having to shampoo your hair everyday, which can be a real timesaver if you have really thick hair. Good product.

Kristi Byron, GA

Scent is Strong, but Product Works Well

I love getting a good run in the morning before work. Unfortunately, I don’t aways have time to take a full on shower, dry my hair, style, and so forth. Suave Keratin Dry Shampoo works wonderfully when I need a quick refresh, but don’t have time to get the full on wash and style. After showering and not washing my hair, I’m able to get a decent clean with a small amount. The scent is pretty powerful initially, but the product works well through my medium length straight hair and dries with a light scent. I personally did not like the scent – it reminded me too much of Chinese Apothecary herbs, but because it dissipates after time, it wasn’t a deal breaker for me. Just be aware that while using it that the smell can be a bit overbearing.The product doesn’t make my hair look dry, stringy, or weighed down. In fact, the overall look after application is pretty good – my hair looked clean and it took away the oily sheen, and conditioned my hair a bit. While my hair doesn’t look "showered fresh", it does look a lot better than it would post workout otherwise. Overall, I’m pleased with the results and would use this when pinched for time.

Alicia Lockridge, IA

Works Really Well On Days You Don’t Have Time To Wash Your Hair

This dry shampoo works really nicely. I found it useful on days when I was too busy to wash my hair – I was still presentable and my hair did not look oily or gross. I was surprised at how well it worked.
