Recently I had the opportunity to try out Pssssst! On-The-Go Instant Dry Shampoo. I had high hopes for this dry shampoo. Read on to see if it lives up to my expectations!

The Website Claims:
The FIRST dry shampoo…the trend is finally catching on! Refreshes and rejuvenates hair by soaking up excess oil, removing product build up and boosting volume. Hair looks, feels and smells freshly shampooed. Cleans and conditions – without water. Also available in a travel-friendly size.
Not Tested on Animals. Made in the USA.

  • Transforms Dull, Dirty Hair Without Washing
  • Eliminates Odor And Product Build-Up
  • Preserves Color And Builds Volume
  • Absorbs Excess Oil

$6.99 for 5.3 oz, smaller size is 1.75 oz.

Does it live up to its claims?
Sort of. It doesn’t hurt color or make your hair stinky. In fact, it does smell good. but, I couldn’t get it to absorb oil or build volume for me the way my old standby Batiste does. I’m not sure what it is about my particular hair, but most dry shampoos just don’t work with it. This one did work better than any other one I’ve tried aside from Batiste.

I think this may work better for other hair types. My hair doesn’t get very oily, but I do sometimes use a dry shampoo around day 5 or 6 in between washing to let me eke out another day. It may work better if your hair gets oily faster

Would I purchase?
No. It didn’t absorb oil or add volume for me, which is primarily what I need from a dry shampoo. It did, however, smell fabulous and it wasn’t detrimental to my color. I took off a star for not absorbing oil and a star for not adding volume. It is, however, a great deal for the price if it will work for your hair and it does smell good.
