Is everyone ready to admit they use dry shampoo...like all the time? I certainly do and we have some of our favs here that we hope have you looking your best and extending your style. Check out our top 5 dry shampoo picks to solve all your hair care woes - like color, volume, cleanliness and more in this post!
1. Best Overall
This dry shampoo is hands down my favorite because it is super-absorbent and it eliminates oils and impurities, leaving hair looking and feeling clean and refreshed. This formula leaves hair with extra volume and a matte finish. Microfine rice powders absorb excess oils and odors. As they absorb, they become translucent to naturally blend with all hair colors and expand to provide lift in the roots. Golden root extract increases moisture to prevent dryness and breakage. Shake well and spray onto roots 4–6 inches away from the scalp. Allow to dry then gently rub in and brush through. It now comes in several scents but the original will always be my favorite.
2. Best Cleaning
Want to really get a clean feeling? This dry shampoo that actually cleans hair, eliminating oil, sweat and odor and is suitable for al hair types. It's powered by the brand's Triple-Action Cleaning Technology to address how hair looks, feels and smells. Fast-absorbing powders soak up oil and sweat while helping you remove the powders easily from hair, resulting in actually clean hair. Odor neutralizers and time-released fragrances keep hair smelling clean. Shake well for maximum cleaning results. Hold canister 6–10" away from dry hair, then apply the dry shampoo section by section in a sweeping motion to dirty or oily areas. Wait 30 seconds for powders to activate and cleanse, then remove them by massaging your hair with your fingers or brushing your hair. If you see a little white residue don't worry, that's the cleaning in action as the oil and sweat are absorbed. Just wait 30 seconds and brush gently to remove. You can also use a hair dryer to remove extra powder from your hair if necessary.
3. Best Multi-Purpose
This three-in-one formula that texturizes, amplifies and refreshes hair, providing instant texture, volume and body and is suitable for all hair types. It is formulated with crystal clear microporous minerals (zeolite), this finishing spray adds matte texture, creates separation for fuller styles and absorbs light oils. It features notes of vanilla, coconut and amber. Use on dry, styled hair as a final step. Shake extremely well, then spray 4–6 inches away from dry hair for texture, volume and light hold. For added fullness, spray with your head upside down.
4. Best Volumizing
This dry shampoo will give you that boost that brings big life to limp hair. It is an ultrafine powder that helps provide instant volume and lift at your hair's roots and has a light matte texture. A pliable polymer blend coats each hair strand to provide long-lasting volume and style memory, while silica provides light texture with a matte finish. The powder also contains aloe, which is packed with vitamins and antioxidants to leave hair looking replenished and restored. Use on dry hair. Hold the bottle vertically. Lift your hair and spray 1–2 pumps at the roots. Massage in for instant volume and texture. A little goes a long way....believe this!
5. Best Color Coverage
If you are like me and not making it into the salon as much as you would like - and your roots are proof of that - then you will love this dry shampoo that gives a little color to your hair. The waterless formula targets excess oil, dirt, and grease at the roots. This dry shampoo is formulated with a hint of color so you can say goodbye to white residue and hello to a dry shampoo that blends seamlessly with your hair color - both light and dark options available. Plus at under $10 this one is definitely worth a try!
