Top Brands of Dry Shampoo
Because there are so many different brands of dry shampoo available at your fingertips, it’s important to understand which one is the best for you.
Drug Store Brands
Batiste: Batiste is a drugstore favorite when it comes to dry shampoo. People love it because it's affordable and it works well. It's best for refreshing your hair between washes and absorbing oil. However, some people find that it leaves a white cast on their hair. It also contains Talc which can be irritating to the scalp.
Dove: Dove is another drugstore favorite. It's best for adding volume and texture to your hair. It has a light scent and it doesn't tend to leave a white cast on your hair. However, it does contain alcohol which can dry out your scalp.
Garnier Fructis: Garnier Fructis is another affordable option that works well. It's best for absorbing oil and adding volume to your hair. It doesn't leave a white cast on your hair and it has a pleasant scent. However, it does contain alcohol which can dry out your scalp.
Devines: Devine’s Hair Refresher is formulated with Sinodor molecules that capture and neutralize odors. It uses natural rice powder to absorb excess sebum while adding moisture. It has a long-lasting fresh scent of yuzu and lemons to leave you fresh all day.
Amika: Amika is a salon brand that is beloved by many. It's best for refreshing your hair between washes and adding texture. It doesn't leave a white cast on your hair and it has a pleasant scent. However, it does contain talc which can be irritating to the scalp.
Briogeo: Briogeo is another salon brand that is popular among dry shampoo users. It's best for refreshing your hair between washes and absorbing oil. It uses only natural propellants, so it’s best for the environment.
IGK: IGK is a newer salon brand that has quickly become a favorite among dry shampoo users. It's best for adding volume and texture to your hair. Of all the dry shampoos we’ve mentioned, IGK’s is the most texturizing. If your hair has trouble holding volume, this can help the most.
What Ingredients to Avoid
If you have specific hair needs, or a sensitive scalp, it’s important to learn which ingredients to stay away from in your dry shampoo.
Talc: Talc is a powdery ingredient that can be very irritating to the scalp. It can also cause dryness and flakiness.
Alcohol: Alcohol is a drying ingredient that can strip the natural oils from your scalp. This can lead to dryness, itchiness, and flakiness.
