Over the past few years, micellar water has changed the way we remove makeup for the better. (Thanks for showing us the way, French ladies!) Now just as this miracle solution has gone mainstream, it’s lending its cleansing powers to our hair products too. In case you need a refresh — micellar water is made up of micelles, or tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules that seek out dirt and buildup to draw out impurities without drying out the skin. The same concept works when micellar does its thang on hair, so your locks will feel super clean without feeling brittle.
1. R + Co Spiritualized Dry Shampoo Mist ($28): There’s a lot we already love about dry shampoo from reviving lackluster hair to extending the life of our ‘dos. Unfortunately, the flaky residue and itchy aftermath can cause are major downers. That’s what makes the newly released mist from R + Co so special. The micellar formulation cleanses your hair and scalp of dirt and oil without leaving trace amounts behind. Reach for this buy in between more rigorous washes or in lieu of more powdery dry shampoo solutions.
2. Pantene Micellar Revitalize Foam Conditioner ($6): This lightweight conditioner is an ideal fit for fine hair, but it works as a one-two punch for dirty strands for all hair types. After showering/shampooing, just apply a palm-size amount of foam from your roots to tips to purify your hair. Micellar water works to condition and clean locks without stripping hair of much-needed natural moisture.
3. Devacurl Buildup Blaster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum ($28): Curls require a lot of product (and attention, tbh), which can be a challenge to rinse out without leaving dry tendrils. Try this micellar cleansing serum that will remove unwanted buildup plus give your locks a boost of shine and bounce to boot. Add it to your shower routine once a week in place of your usual cleanser and follow up with a deep conditioner for best results.
4. Herbal Essences Bio Micellar Water and Blue Ginger Shampoo ($6): Get ready for some of the shiniest hair of your life — not to mention the best smelling! This micellar shampoo formula removes impurities, is full of antioxidants, and leaves your hair sleek and shiny. The ginger, musk, and floral bouquet scent is a nice bonus, too.
