    I voted that I’ve never tried it, because I have not.

    Yes, occasionally. Maybe couple of times a month. It depends. I only use it on my bangs.

    Used to but found it pretty useless for keeping my hair looking decent throughout the day and excellent for making my scalp itch... Occasionally I'll try it again and remember how much I dislike the stuff.

    When I was a teen my grandma bought me a bottle from Mylène (brand like Avon but in Belgium) and it was a big glass bottle (did she want to tell me something LOL) with a regular spray pump, so no aerosol. It was like flower mixed with water and butter, that's what it looked like. Slightly beige tint, like the base of a roux. LOL! It just didn't work, it only made my hair oilier.

    I was washing once a week then, and my parents just thought that was fine, until they saw the mess and told me yes, wash it 2x a week; since then I had been washing 2/3 times a week (when needing to be presentable even more).

    It's only been in the last couple years that my oil production allowed me to go once a week again. I am 46 right now.

    I would never ever use dry shampoo again. It not only makes my hair look oilier, it also exacerbates my SD (seborrheic dermatitis).

    A few times a year. I use more "natural" dry shampoos though.

    I voted "No, I've never tried it", because that's the closest, but in reality, I've tried it once. I hated the "dusty" feeling it left me with way more than I dislike having oily roots, and since then I haven't needed to even consider it.

    I "make" a DIY dry shampoo that does the trick if the hair on my scalp is a little oily but my length is dry and I don't want to wash it. I put "make" in quotations because it's just some dried aromatic herb that I put it in my spice grinder and mix with arrowroot powder lol. The arrowroot powder by itself works but I like to add and an herb (like lavender for example) for the scent.
    Its not quite as good and store-bought dry shampoos I've used in years past but it works pretty darn well and doesn't have any icky ingredients in it. Plus it's way cheaper. Works for me!

    Yes, very occasionally if I need to look presentable and don't have the energy even for a scalp wash. I use cornflour, which dehydrates my scalp by the end of the day so it really is a last resort. Useful for those rare occasions when I truly have no other choice though.

    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness
