Dry Shampoo…it’s the one thing I always stock up on so I never run out. It’s the first thing I pack in a travel bag, and it’s become a staple in my every day hair routine. I obviously use it to freshen up roots a day or two after a fresh blow out, but I even use it to texturize hair after it’s clean so it styles just the way I want it to. I’ve learned that it’s a multi use product that I simply can’t live without! I’ve tried a few different brands and thought I would share my thoughts on each. I’m always looking for the ‘magical’ version of a specific product, so if there is one you can’t live without-please share! XO
DryBar Detox Dry Shampoo– ($23) Pair this with the Triple Sec spray and it’s the perfect combo for perfect hair. I love the scent of this dry shampoo, and really how thick it goes on. When applied, it helps coat the roots to absorb oil and remove that greasy look. Not a ton of white residue and even comes in a tint for darker hair. I keep this one on hand and use it weekly with the Triple Sec. The combination works great to keep my hair hydrated, yet clean looking and with great volume.
Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry Shampoo– ($14) The entire Kristin Ess line is fantastic and I love that you can pick it up at Target, and that the price point is so affordable! (Along with the dry shampoo, I also use and love this shampoo & conditioner) This version smells delightful and goes on translucent…which I love. I did notice that I had to spray this one more thoroughly throughout my hair to fully get that ‘clean’ look. I used more of the product per use than some of the others. And while it doesn’t help with volume, it’s a great option for a quick spray and go style day. I like to apply this one mainly to give hair a quick pick up before I pull it back, or after a gym workout to absorb the oils.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo– ($23) At first use, this one impressed me with it’s delicious smell and the instant feel of volume it gave to my hair. However, the dreaded white residue look lingered longer than I had hoped and it took a bit of rubbing in to get it to go away. While it did the job of a dry shampoo- soaking up oils, providing a hint of volume by plumping hair at the root, I wasn’t impressed with longevity with which it wore. I felt like I needed to reapply around lunchtime, and again later in the day. Didn’t hate it, but didn’t love it!
R+Co. Death Valley Dry Shampoo– ($17-$20) Of all the brands I’ve tried recently, I’d have to say this one is my favorite. The spray goes on thick but doesn’t leave a white residue and just a few sprays goes a long way. It smells amazing and truly helps hair last looking and feeling revitalized throughout the day. I found this one kept my hair feeling clean and volumized longer than the others, and helped to really soak up any oils.
