Review: Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo

I've heard so much about this product and it came highly recommended by the sales associate at Sephora. She even gave me a detailed description on how to use it. Before this purchased I used Johnson's Baby Powder which works like a dream but the smell gets on my nerves. The Oscar Blondi smells heavenly, like coconut verbena - and its lightly scented so it doesn't get irritating or compete with your perfume. The top of the bottle comes to a point and per the sales associate you just shake out a desired amount on your part, on your hairline, around you ears, and anywhere else that gets shiny. Then you brush through and style as normal. This method does not work for me. I always end up pouring out too much product or it clumps in tiny balls that I can't brush completely out (leaving me with what looks like dandruff peaking out of my hair). I take a small amount of product in my palm and rub my hands together so both palms are thinly coated and I rub them through my hair. Sometimes I have to do this 2-3 times but it works much more efficiently at diffusing the right amount of product. Then I can brush and style as normal. So far so good. I like the product but I also like the results of cheap baby powder. The one big plus for this product is the smells and my scalp feels refreshed after I use it. The Sephora website gave this dry shampoo it's natural seal as it is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals, phthalates, GMO, and triclosan. I paid $11 for a 2.5 oz bottle which will probably last about 4-6 months. I will use this bottle and probably try another brand - not because I didn't like this one but by the time I'm out there will probably be a new dry shampoo that catches my eye. Speaking of which, I have heard good things about TIGI Rochaholic...
