New York Streets Dry Shampoo Review: Prepare to Be Disappointed

I love dry shampoo. It’s a powdery hair product, usually sprayed from a can, that can make your greasy, unwashed hair look and feel soft and clean. I went into my New York Streets Dry Shampoo review with all the hope I normally have when it comes to dry shampoo.
