Review of Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo

Reader Review of the Day: Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo

Girls, girls, girls: Everybody needs a little extra hair refreshment now and then, and award-winning Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo ($19) is a hair care staple for reader Nikisix. Here's what she had to say about this oil-absorbing product:

I have always washed my every day, even when I know I'm not supposed to. But my hair would get so greasy at the roots I could never break the cycle. I've tried other dry shampoos that came as a spray and they just made my hair feel gross, and ultimately wouldn't last. Pronto, however, is fantastic. It lasts well over one day, so I'm now able to wash my hair every other day. It's great, and the fragrance isn't too overpowering. I could see how brunettes might not like the white powder, but it works great for my blond hair. Will definitely buy again.

If you're in the same old situation, it might be worth looking into. Are you itching to get your beauty reviews out there? Our Product Reviews website is just the ticket. Even better? Maybe you'll see your opinion featured here.

I was just thinking about dry shampoo for my dark and oily hair. This sounds great- thanks!

I really want to try this...or maybe the Bumble and Bumble version. I have wavy hair and blow-dry, I would love to make my blowouts last longer.

i love this product. i have very dark hair, but find if you rub it in well enough it looks fine. not white and powdery or too dull, but not oily. ive had the same small-ish bottle for like a year. i use it between hair washings or after late night partying turns into morning chores and errands and such. its a god send for times like this morning where i was running late and had no time to shower before class after the gym.

I'm a red head and love love love this. I've used several dry shampoos, including the aerosol Ojon which constantly either depressurized or got clogged. I also LOVE the smell. Citrus just makes everything seem so much cleaner.

i use this and this is the only dry shampoo i've tried. The spray can ones all have alcohol in it so I stayed away from them thinking that it might dry out my hair. I have dark hair so sometimes if i don't rub in the shampoo well enough, you can see it on my strands which is super funny and embarrassing to have pple rub it out for me! I just poof clouds over my head and just use a towel or hands to rub it in. It just sucks breathing it in. But i prefer the not shiny look than a white scalp look.

Never tried this one, but I've tried the Bumble & Bumble dry shampoo in the red and brunette shades, and I love them! A little bit at the roots and my hair has more volume, and I don't have to shampoo every day.

I really like the dry shampoo by SAMMY. it works really well and to avoid any of the white powder you really need to hold it farther away from your hair. imo it disperses more evenly and w/o show that way. oh, and it only costs 7 bucks AND it smells *clean*, not gross or overpowering!

I love this stuff too. And it has to be the non aerosol can, like everyone said it depressurizes way too quickly. I've also used Klorane Dry Shampoo, and I LOVE the bottle design. It's a squeeze bottle that sprays the powder in a fine mist. Sephora didn't have it the last time I was there so I just purchased the Oscar stuff and poured it into the bottle. Works just fine!

I have this brand in the spray version, and I agree with bastylefilegirl, it STINKSSS. It reminds me of how old ladies smell, lol. I was so excited to finally buy some dry shampoo because I had been wanting it for so long. But between the smell and the fact that I don't notice much of a difference after I apply it, I can honestly say I rarely use this product.

I adore this product! I have dark blonde hair and I haven't had a problem with the white powder showing up. The best tip though is not to just pour it on your scalp with the applicator, you'll get way too much out and it will show. When I bought it at Sephora I got the advice to pour a little in your palm and rub your fingertips in it, then apply it to your roots with your fingertips. It does have a strong smell but I find it pleasant, it's sort of like lemongrass. It fades quickly so I don't think it would interfere with perfume during the day. I use a small amount so I have a bottle that has lasted for +6 months.

Wow I Love the smell of lemon verbena!! Most brunettes I know who have had problems with the powder being white, have been putting too much in and not brushing it out enough.

Dry shampoo never works on my hair, I think it always looks just as "ick." I'd rather just not do anything all together that day I'm "not washing" than sprinkle some powder to absorb oil, my scalp doesn't get that oily. I also could never go more than every other NOT washing, that's just gross.

I love this type of dry shampoo. I have brown hair and as long as you use your bristle brush to really work it works great!

rockvix is right this type of applicator bottle allows for more control so you can get the powder to the roots which means that dark brown hair like mine isn't left stained white. this stuff still stinks though ahahaha

i have tried this brand, except i got the aerosol spray can. i DO NOT recommend that, because the can depressurized after about a week. in fact, i contacted them about it & they sent me a new one. same deal. as for the product itself, it worked really well! i have brown hair & the powder is white, but you just shake the excess powder off and it's not a problem. i would recommend trying this type of applicator bottle.

I much prefer the paraben, and fragrance free Frederik Fekkai Au Naturel Dry Shampoo. This Oscar Blandi is similar to the Au Naturel Dry Shampoo I like, but Oscar's stuff STINKS seriously I don't want to walk around smelling like Leamon Verbena all day.

I love the T3 Dry Shampoo. It comes in three colors and I used mine a lot before it ran out. (Probably twice a week for about three months, so I would say I got around 25 uses out of it.)

I've used the sprays before and feel they are only good for 2-3 uses before they are done. With this my little sample bottle (from Sephora, I recommend if you want try it out before committing) is still going strong after 6-7 uses. I do have dark brunette hair and you have to really brush and work the white powder into your scalp and down from your hair shaft to get it to look good. If they had this in brunette I would be all over it.
