Dry shampoo is an absolute beauty must. Even if you wash your hair every day, it’s good to keep some dry shampoo on hand for bangs-stuck-to-your-head moments, hot days, and for all around maintenance purposes. Dry shampoo is seriously my savior and I don’t know where I’d be without it. Since not all dry shampoos are created equal, I bought a few different dry shampoos to review them for you here.
Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo – Lush dry shampoo is different from others on this list in that it’s a powder instead of a spray. The powder is easy to shake into your hand or directly onto your hair and all you do is pat it onto the oily spots or finger comb it through. It soaks up all of the nasty dirt and oils and leaves behind a fresh scent of lime. I really liked this dry shampoo because it didn’t leave any white residue (as long as I blended it all in) and it made my hair look and feel so clean. The plus is the added volume you’ll get by fluffing your hair with your fingers.
Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo – Suave is the least expensive on the list. For less than $3 per can, you can stock up on a few cans at a time and keep an arsenal of hair repair in your own home. Not only is it super cheap, but it works pretty well too. The back of the can says that it’s comparable to the splurge-worthy Renee Futerer dry shampoo and I’d say it comes pretty close. The convenient spray makes it easy to target the part in your hair (which is my problem zone) and the root line of the bangs. It smells good, it works, and it’s cheap. Just make sure to really rub the white residue into your scalp or use a towel to blend it in.
Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo – One thing that immediately stood out to me with this dry shampoo is the smell. It smells like all Dove products do – delicious! It made my hair smell fresh and clean which is a major plus. One downside is that when you spray it, it creates a cloud of product so I’d recommend using it in a large open area. It soaked up all of the oils in my hair and added a little volume to boot!
Umberto Dry Clean Dry Shampoo – This dry shampoo should be used sparingly because it soaks up oils in the scalp like you’ve never seen. If you have dry hair already, I wouldn’t recommend this. On the other hand, if you’re prone to an oily scalp and mid-day greasy hair, this is the product for you. This dry shampoo leaves a lot of white residue behind so make sure you rub it all in with a towel and run a brush through it a few times to make sure it’s all out. Your hair will stay fresh and clean all day long.
Tresseme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo – Some people use dry shampoo for different reasons and if you’re looking for a quick, on-the-go type of dry shampoo then this is your friend. This product comes in a full size, and convenient travel sized can that can be stuffed in your purse for emergencies. I don’t like that it leaves a residue on my hair, but it does the job if you have no time to wash your hair, or you need to freshen up.
