Editors’ Pick: Igk First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo
- Smells delicious
- Adds tons of volume without weighing hair down
- Cleanses even the oiliest hair and scalp with odor-eliminating charcoal powder
This lightweight spray smells amazing (like fresh cucumbers) and uses oil-erasing and odor-eliminating charcoal powder to liven hair up in a flash. It also contains calming white tea powder to soothe the scalp and strengthen hair follicles while adding volume to limp strands and dries up oil without leaving any residue. One verified reviewer even said her hair looked better on day two of no shower because of this dry shampoo.
Best Value: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo
- 16-time beauty award-winning formula
- Doubles as a heat protectant
- Leaves hair smelling clean and feeling fresh
According to one PureWow editor, this dry shampoo stands out above the crowd. “I’ve tried a handful of dry shampoos and I finally found the one for me. It smells amazing and doesn’t leave my hair gritty or ashy-looking.” Containing Living Proof’s proprietary thermal speed-shaping technology, this product doesn’t require a brush-through or blow-dry post-application.
Splurge-worthy: Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
- Strengthens and softens hair
- Smells fresh all day long
- Brides and Glamour beauty award winner
If you can swing the nearly $50 price tag to keep your roots looking freshly washed, you’re in for a real treat. This luxurious spray uses translucent powders to absorb oil, odors and product buildup while strengthening hair follicles and adding softness and volume to strands. Our PureWow editor loved that there was no gritty residue left on her scalp after a few uses, just perfectly clean-feeling roots with an added oomph.
