A dry shampoo can be a beauty lifesaver. Used to refresh hair, prolong a blowout, add extra volume or texture, salvage a bad hair day…a good dry shampoo is a beauty product to have in your arsenal. It’s a staple during New York Fashion Week, as in this soft updo by Antoinette Beenders, Aveda Global Creative Director, at the Spring/Summer 2016 Okslen show.

I’ve tried many dry shampoos over the years, these are my favorites:

Best Dry Shampoos

What I look for in a dry shampoo is mainly a product that refreshes hair without leaving a residue. We’ve all been there with the white residue that you can’t brush out of your hair. It’s also important to be safe for color-treated hair, and selfishly for me, I like it to smell good. I also like some of the color-specific dry shampoos, but “invisible” is my first choice.

No matter the dry shampoo you use, it’s important to shake well before using, spray evenly and direct at the roots of your hair. Most hairstylists agree that holding the can anywhere from 6-10 inches away is best. Leave product in hair for a couple of minutes, then massage in with your fingers or use a brush to distribute/remove excess. These are just general tips; make sure to carefully read the label of whatever dry shampoo you buy.
