Dry Shampoo

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)

Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo– 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.)

Batiste– This is the brand of dry shampoo my daughter & lots of her friends use. They like it!

R&Co Dry Shampoo

Jet Lag Dry Shampoo** – A little goes a long way with this stuff. Start real small. It adds nice volume but is SUPER drying.

DryBar Detox Dry Shampoo**- Maybe my most often reached for. It does the job. Cleans up my hair, adds volume, and has a smell that is nice and I don’t notice much.

Kristin Ess Dry Shampoo

Amika Dry Shampoo

Big Sexy Hair Dry Shampoo

Pssst! Dry Shampoo** – 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!

Ouai Foaming Dry Shampoo**– The foaming aspect is cool. I like this one. The only down side is it didn’t add much volume for me.

-Orlando Pita Dry Shampoo

SunBum Dry Shampoo

-Suave Dry Shampoo

Living Proof Dry Shampoo**– This is one Linley uses regularly.

    You have got a great line-up of dry shampoos! I have also tried a ton and really enjoy your two favs. However, I got to tell you, Living Proof I personally think is even better! The smell is really fresh, smells like shampoo. It actually cleans the hair, it elimates sweat and odor. No flakes, terrific smell, and actually CLEANS your hair! What?! It’s the best you should give it a try.

      Thank you! Yes, Living Proof is one that Linley likes as well. I didn’t have awesome luck with it. Are you blonde? All the blondes i know like it.
