TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo

I'm not normally an advocate of not grooming oneself, such as skipping a shampoo. However, there are circumstances, such as running late or being lazy (both of which factor heavily in my life), when you are entitled to exit your home with slightly less than clean hair.

So, then, what to do about hiding your less than clean hair from the masses?

In a conundrum one night when I was due to meet friends in a measly 20 minutes, I grabbed a can of TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo and sprayed it on my roots. And magically, my greasies disappeared with a few sprays!

To use, basically shake the can, position it a few inches away from your head, and spray onto your roots. The product comes out slightly whitish but once you run a brush or fingers through the hair, the product disappears.

For me, the results of the product were fantastic. Any oiliness at my roots disappeared instantly. Also, the dry shampoo has a slightly flowery smell which helps mask smoke smells. The product does mattify the hair a bit so you lose some shine at the roots, but hey, its better than greasiness!

Besides being great for extending a blowout or other hairstyle for one more day, the Dirty Secret dry shampoo would be great for updos where you need a little bit of texture to make the style "hold."

I paid around $18 for Dirty Secret dry shampoo but I found it here for a little more than $16.


  1. Oooo. I'm going to check this out. I've been using Ojon which works great but it's $24 a pop and the spray stops working while there's still at least 1/4 of a can of product left. It's happened to me twice now so I think it's time for a change!

  2. Yes, one of the reasons I bought the Tigi instead of the Ojon was that it was a little cheaper but still works well!

  3. It didn't work very well for me. I wouldn't recommend it. I don't think it did a thing. Maybe it's only for people who don't use hairspray or products from the day before? I use hairspray on my bangs and After-party smoothing cream on the ends of my hair. I tried spraying the Rockaholic at my roots all over my head and it didn't do a thing. It was still shiney and greasy looking.

  4. Hi Anon! That is too bad it did not work for you! I got great results from it!

  5. Where can you buy this in stores??

  6. Lauren,

    I bought mine at a Pure Beauty store. You can also likely find it a Ulta stores or online. I found a dicounted one at Amazon

  7. Have you ladies tried Batiste Dry Shampoo? It's one of my HG items and works excellent on greasy hair and is fairly cheap, it works on any type of hair :)
