Dry shampoo is a beauty essential in my top shelf. We all know that daily washing can strip your hair of healthy oils, throw off its pH balance, and cause inflammation to the scalp. So in the summertime, when my hair tends to become greasier and limp after second-day hair, I resort to my favorite dry shampoos! I have to admit, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with dry shampoo for the longest… Trying to manage dandruff-looking results to deciphering powders and sprays was the name of the game. But today’s dry shampoo formulations top that of those from a decade ago. Here are my top 10 dry shampoos in no particular order.

Hailing from South Africa, Waterless Dry Shampoo was created to help maintain and clean hair without water given their water crisis. I was super impressed with this product given it’s affordable price point (under $10!). I especially love how it absorbs oil and tames frizz without drying out my hair. It’s also formulated without alcohol and parabens so you can feel good about dousing your hair in it.


2. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

On the luxury side of the spectrum is my all-time favorite Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. I’ve never met a professional hair stylist who didn’t love this product. Since I have finer hair, I use this one when I want to add volume and texture. It’s not exactly a dry shampoo but contains patented polymers, which absorb oil at the roots and acts like one.

3. Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

If you have a sensitive scalp that’s easily irritated with products, then Klorane’s Dry Shampoo was made for you! It contains plant-based ingredients and oat milk that’s organically harvested, leaving your hair clean and soft – not dry and dusty. It comes in three different sizes, so if you just want to test it out, you can go for the 1 oz, but if you absolutely love it, then grab the value size!

4. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

Another dry shampoo that’s worthy of the raving reviews it receives is by Living Proof. It smells amazing and prolongs blowouts like nothing else. Spray it on your scalp before you head to the gym to help absorb dirt, oil, and sweat. You’ll be surprised with the end result! This one is also available in 3 sizes!

5. Amika Hair Holy Grail Dry Shampoo

Here’s a dry shampoo that addresses oiliness and volume simultaneously. It’s made without talc or aluminum yet is able to absorb excess volume. It has a nice floral scent that isn’t too overpowering and keeps your hair conditioned too!

It contains both argan oil and rice starch to nurture your mane while drawing out oils. Just be sure to let it set before massaging it throughout your hair!

7. IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo

We all know the wonders of charcoal by now for your oral health, skin, and now hair! That’s why you should try this IGK dry shampoo. Charcoal is known to be a cleansing agent that absorbs grease and eliminates odor, making it a perfect option for sweaty gym days!

8. Playa Pure Dry Shampoo

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect clean option, then get Playa on your radar. Formulated without toxic ingredients, this botanically powered product does all the things you’d expect from a dry shampoo while restoring body and volume. It works wonders on all hair types too!

9. R+Co Spiritualize Dry Shampoo Mist

This dry shampoo gets raving reviews because it comes as a mist and isn’t as drying as its aerosol counterparts. While you can expect an initial dampness to your hair, once it dries and settle, it’ll keep your hair moisturized and conditioned sans the shine and grease.

10. Bumble & Bumble Prêt-a-Powder Très Invisible Nourishing Dry Shampoo

For those of you with color treated hair, you’ll love this one by Bumble & Bumble. It contains UV filters help protect against the drying effects of the sun and keeps your tresses nourished at the same time.
