12 Dry Shampoos Perfect for Salty Summer Hair Woes
When it comes to our morning routines, simplicity is key. Essentials include a reef-safe SPF to combat the sun, a trusty deodorant to combat stink, and reliable dry shampoo to combat excessive oil while adding volume. Ahead you'll find our top picks to transform your tresses from flat to fabulous in a seasonally *hot* minute.
This pick isn't your average dry shampoo. It starts out as a foam, but once you apply it to your hair, it turns into a lightweight powder. Magic! It eliminates extra oil while also adding some body and texture to limp hair, and we love the orange and neroli fragrance.
Not only is this dry shampoo non-toxic and in a bottle that can be recycled, but it's also infused with adaptogens (plants that help your body's wellbeing). The plants in question, He Shou Wu and Mucuna Pruriens, have been used to help hair health for hundreds of years.
This drugstore pick is great if you're on a budget. In addition to the price, we love that it barely leaves behind any fragrance, that way it's not in competition with our go-to perfume.
The white residue that dry shampoo can leave behind can be annoying, especially if you have dark hair. That's why colored dry shampoo is so great! It works on all hair types, and you won't have to worry about any white streaks. Have lighter hair? Try the Verb Dry Shampoo for Light Hair instead.
The charcoal found in this product helps to clean your hair and your scalp while it sucks up all the oil. Plus, it's odor-eliminating and scalp-soothing, making it the perfect pick for days you don't have time to wash your hair.
We love oat milk in our cold brew, but we never thought about adding it to our beauty products! This dry shampoo will suck up excess oil to give your hair new life.
This vegan and sulfate-free formula is great for all hair types and will help you have the best second-day hair around. It's also talc-free so you don't have to worry about any white residue.
You won't regret grabbing a bottle of this dry shampoo on your next Target run. The subtle lavender, musk, and powder scent will offer a refreshing feel, and the formula contains keratin to make your hair smoother and shinier.
The fast-absorbing powders in this dry shampoo soak up all your oil and sweat to give you fresher-looking hair in minutes. Living Proof's patented healthy hair molecule reduces the surface friction of the powders so that it's easy to wash them out.
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo ($14+)
We love that this product is cruelty-, sulfate-, and paraben-free. The rice powders in this formula are micro-fine so that they naturally blend with your hair color and once they absorb oil, they expand to provide your roots with volume. The Golden Root Extract adds some extra moisture to protect your hair from breakage.
Give your hair a boost with the powerhouse ingredients in this formula. Zea Mays and Tapioca starches, as well as Avena Sativa Kernel Flour, add texture and volume, while the Silica removes oil from your roots.
The great thing about this lightweight and volumizing dry shampoo is that it lifts and provides some texture to your hair without leaving any sticky residue behind. A mix of ginger, ginseng, and biotin, which helps with long-term hair health, gets a thumb's up from us.
