Jen Atkin’s Ouai Dry Shampoo is the perfect oil absorbing spray for all hair types. At $24, it neutralizes oil and leaves hair instantly refreshed. And good news! The dry shampoo is clear, so it will never leave behind a white or powdery film on your hair.

IGK’s First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo smells incredible and produces refreshed and volumized hair. Apply it to the greaser areas of your hair to eliminate oil and odor. Although on the pricier side, at $27 a can, the dry shampoo is heavy duty and will leave your hair feeling cleansed and ready to go!

Not Your Mother’s

The Clean Freak Dry Shampoo from Not Your Mother’s is affordable and works beautifully to give your hair the extra oomph that it needs after skipping a wash or two. With its light matte finish, the $5.99 product will have your hair ready for anything.

Living Proof

For a more luxurious option, use Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo. At $24 a can, it will actually clean your hair, eliminating oil, odor and sweat. Perfect for those trying to cut back on washes, the dry shampoo continues to deliver a fresh scent throughout the day, right after application.


Last, but certainly not least! Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo does just that—it perks up otherwise dull, dirty hair. Great for all hair types, this dry shampoo refreshes and deodorizes. At $25, this product will immediately absorb unwanted oils and produce clean, revitalized hair.
