What did we ever do before the invention of dry shampoo? With a few spritzes of this miracle spray my blowout can go from lasting 3 days to six (please keep that our little secret)! It’s one of those genius products that can really change your routine for the better, but not all dry shampoos are created equal. Keep reading for our favorites, plus the fool-proof method to revive your hair without being left with unwanted residue.
How to Use Dry Shampoo:
1. Give the bottle a good shake before use.
2. Evenly spray your hair from 6-8 inches away, focusing on your roots.
3. Let it sit for about a minute, then gently massage the powder into your hair with your fingers.
4. Brush through your hair to distribute the product/get rid of any excess residue.
5. Apply more as needed and repeat the steps.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk: Everyone swears by this dry shampoo. It uses oat milk, which can absorb oiliness within minutes without leaving any dreaded white powder in your hair. Plus, your hair gets a little boost of volume. My hair personally falls flat after a few days, so I’m always looking for a dry shampoo that will add a little oomph. It may be a bit pricier than other dry shampoos, but you’re really paying for exceptional quality. ($20 for 3.2 oz)
Batiste Dry Shampoo: Batiste’s line of dry shampoos is one of the best at the drugstore. There are many options – a tropical scent, one specifically for brown hair – but they’re all pretty fantastic. Some brunettes swear by the ones made specifically for brown hair, others aren’t into it because they say the brown powder looks unnatural. At only $9, it’s worth it to try it out and see if it works for you! ($9 for 6.7 oz)
Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Dry Shampoo: This product was just released, so I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but I am so excited to. It’s a dry shampoo that has the signature, floral Nirvana White scent. Nirvana is my most-complimented perfume, so I can’t wait to see if it has the same reaction when sprayed into my hair. If this dry shampoo actually revitalizes and refreshes my blowout, it’s safe to say I’ll have a new favorite. ($28)
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo: I really find this to be the most underrated dry shampoo on the market. It makes my Day 4 hair look freshly blown out in just a few minutes. When it comes to dry shampoos, there’s a lot of trial and error – there are so many that leave so much white residue you just get frustrated, but this product is exceptional. Whatever white powder is spritzed out brushes away easily, and your hair is left full and bouncy. ($6 for 7 oz)
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray: Look in any celebrity or editorial hair stylist’s bag and there’s a major chance you will find Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. Part dry shampoo, part texturizer, this wonder-product adds a fresh boost of volume like no other. With zero white residue, a few spritzes gives your voluminous, gorgeous hair that looks like you just got it done. ($42 for 8.5 oz)
