The Busy Girl's Guide to Choosing a Dry Shampoo
It wasn't long ago that dry shampoo was a niche product only available from a select number of brands in one-size-fits-all formulations. Thanks to the realization that overwashing your strands isn't ideal for healthy hair—and the popularity of lived-in texture—almost every haircare brand has added dry shampoo in their ranges, all delivering slightly different results. New formulas have extra benefits—like volume, fullness, and texture—all while soaking up unwanted oil, of course. But how do you know which one is right for you? We broke down each type of dry shampoo (and whether it'll work with your hair color, texture, etc.) so you can have clean hair that looks amazing, too.
Keep scrolling for the editor-tested formulas you need for exactly the look you want.
Rahua Voluminous Dry Shampoo ($32)
If you're convinced aerosol dry shampoo is the only way to go, you've got to try natural offerings. Fortified with clay, vanilla, and citric acid, this dry shampoo swiftly soaks up oil while delivering mega volume and body at the root, all with just a squeeze of the bottle.
Ouai Dry Shampoo ($24)
This dry shampoo (along with all other Ouai products) from Kardashian hair expert, Jen Atkin, smells so amazing, it's being formulated into a perfume soon. But aside from the fact that it smells like an expensive scent, it gives great, gritty texture for achieving "next-day hair."
