  • Dove’s dry shampoo is one of my favorite cheapies. I like it better than Aveeno’s dry shampoo.

  • I used Oscar Blandi’s for awhile but then I needed some in a hurry. I went to Walgreens and bought Finesse’s volumizing dry shampoo ( $3, the one with the lime green cap) and I’ve never looked back. A tip I learned is to pat in the dry shampoo as opposed to brushing.

  • I’m a huge fan of the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo and am super excited to try Drybar’s Dry Shampoo as it must be good for them to replace their own product over the Catwalk Dry Shampoo they were using!

    Another fav is Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder that comes in 3 or 4 colors and is a LIFESAVER because you can spray directly on top to make a part line look refreshed.

  • I have to say that I’ve been loving Tigi’s Rockaholic Dirty Secret dry shampoo. I have very fine hair that gets greasy in under 24 hours and I can get away with not washing my hair for two days using this product. Unheard of for my hair! Doesn’t make it too stiff or gross, and no white color (like with Batiste).

  • I like Tresemme Fresh Start. I also like that it comes in a variety-color care, volumizing, waterless foam. The line also includes a refreshing mist, so if I’ve been at my parents’ house (who smoke indoors), a little spray knocks that smell right out.

  • I have tried both the Oscar Blandi and the Klorane, but I have recently started using Batiste (which I got at Ulta), and it works great – and for about $5, it’s a lot cheaper than the high-end stuff! I have also used the Tresemme one (which is somewhere around $3), and it’s good enough in a pinch!

    I think there are a LOT of good ones out there, and I’m glad that I no longer have to wash my very oily hair every day!

  • ORIBE is my hands down favorite. I just started using it and won’t ever stop. It’s great for providing extra texture and creating that wavy and tousled look!

  • Does anyone know of any dry shampoos that don’t have that powdery smell? I usually wear fresh and citrusy perfumes so I feel like the dry shampoo smell always drowns it out.


  • Victoria’s Secret dry shampoo is the worst! I can’t believe it made it here…it reeks of strong perfume, and the scent does not fade with time (and I am not normally bothered by product smell). I brought it to work for emergencies, and then the spray nozzle stopped working before the product was half gone…ugh. It works okay, but not better than the cheapies like Tresemme/Suave.

  • I am surprised that It’s a Ten dry shampoo did not make the cut. It is my number or favorite!

  • I use ESSENTUALE which is natural as can be AND produces amazingly abundant foam with remarkably noticeable immediate results afterwards – plus it smells fantasic. You can find ESSENTUALE on Amazon or at the ESSENTUALE website. I think you’ll love ESSENTUALE as much as I do!

  • I found the posts below way more informative and detailed than the article itself which seems like a promo for these products. Glad to see the other recommendations from users. Thanks!

    • I’m looking for the same thing! Synthetic fragrance is one of the most common skin allergens…. it would be great to be able to find one that doesn’t irritate my scalp.
