I've been searching for the perfect dry shampoo for quite some time. I don't believe "perfect" exists. But, there are definitely some good ones.
Dry shampoo might be one of those products that there will never be a consensus on since there are many different hair types and people are looking for different things from their dry shampoo. I have brown, medium length, moderately thick, dry-ish hair. I want my dry shampoo to absorb my sweaty stinky post-workout hair and not have much smell or residue to show for it. I am not a hair stylist of any kind. I'm just a busy person hoping to save some time by not having to wash my hair every day! I use dry shampoo like this: before I jump in the shower after working out, I spray some dry shampoo on the sweatiest parts of my hair. Then, I put my hair in my Tassi for the shower. When I'm ready to style my hair, I flip it upside down and blow dry for a few seconds to make sure all the sweaty hair is dried and the dry shampoo is absorbed. (TMI?)
This is what I've tried so far: (the ones I like are starred)
I like this product. But it's not powerful as a dry shampoo. It seems like a good texture spray to me. (Just like Oribe's Dry Texturing Spray which is an AMAZING product.)
This is the brand of dry shampoo my daughter & lots of her friends use. They like it!

A little goes a long way with this stuff. Start real small. It adds nice volume but is drying. EDITED TO ADD: We like the Charcoal Dry Shampoo from IGK better! Less scent. Works amazing even on super sweaty hair.
It does the job. Cleans up my hair, adds volume, and has a smell that is nice and I don't notice much.
We like the scent of this one!
This is the most affordable and does a great job. I need to use a bit more of it, but I'm happy to since it's so cheap!
The foaming aspect is cool. I like this one. The only down side is it didn't add much volume for me.
11 | Orlando Pita Dry Shampoo
12 | SunBum Dry Shampoo
13 | Suave Dry Shampoo
This is one Linley uses regularly. But, it leaves some residue in some brunette hair.
