Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume 400ml
LOVE this product!
This is my go-to product that is cost effective and efficient. I have used many different dry shampoos and this one is the best for keeping grease at bay whilst giving a lot of volume.
I don't use the product for its smell although I wouldn't say it smells bad, but I've never paid attention to the fact that it might even have a smell.
At first, it is very white and powdery but as soon as it is rubbed in and brushed out it doesn't stay for long at all. I have very rarely found the white residue stays and only then it is because I haven't brushed or rubbed properly. It gets rid of all grease, even sometimes two or three days worth in one spray as it is quite a "thick" product. I'd personally feel dirty if I used it for more than one non-wash day though because of the heaviness of the product.
I tend to use this when I'm tying my hair up rather than keeping it down because as it says, XXL volume. I know many people hate it but it is a product that 'clogs' in the sense that it leaves your hair coated in the product but makes it excellent for a "back-combed" effect or when you need a massive oomph. Little backcombing is required after a spray of this. I particularly like this about this product. Excellent for messy buns or big hair styles. Could even be great for massive volume with your hair down however if you hate the clogged, coated feeling then perhaps it is better for an up do.
I sometimes like to use it for oomph on wash days and as it is a volumising product, a little goes a long way on washed hair.

Glue in a can
This product is more like a holding spray. The description of big bouncy locks is wrong - you will have big solid knots. Agree with the post below that if used sparingly it could help an updo but make sure you are styled first because as soon as this spray goes in you cannot get a brush or your fingers through it. It needs fully washing out. Not suitable for daily use - not really a dry shampoo. Annoyed that I cannot find the receipt and bought a large can.

I never want to be without this product.
My hair is straight, thin and starts to get greasy a day after washing. I use this every day whether my hair is clean or between washes. A little spray gives fabulous volume and hold. Its is like a dry shampoo, volumiser and hairspray all in one. A little goes a long way; the 400ml can has lasted me over 3 months and still has at least a weeks worth left.
