Hey girl hey! I pretty much live + die by dry shampoo. It’s a magical product that instantly transforms your hair. Since I don’t wash my hair more than two to three times a week, dry shampoo is a total necessity. In today’s post, I’m breaking down the best dry shampoos for any budget. There are some high end options, and easily accessible drugstore options, perfect for anyone. If you’re a dry shampoo girl, keep on scrollin’!

High End Dry Shampoos
I put this one very first, because its one of my very favorite dry shampoos. My hair actually looks and feels clean when I use this one, almost like I just washed my hair. The scent leaves your hair smelling clean as well. I have repurchased this one time and time again, and will continue to do so.
I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who dislikes the scent of any Drybar products. Their iconic products also come with an iconic fragrance that is well-known and loved. I love how this one volumizes my hair while also giving it a fresh boost. They also have a version for dark hair as well that you can check out here!
Another well-loved scent! Amika’s dry shampoo lightly scents the hair and refreshes within seconds. I love how light it is in the hair. I typically use this one on my day two hair, as it isn’t super heavy duty. This one is a great one for girls with thinner hair, as it helps to give the hair a little boost as well!
I love powder based dry shampoos, and this one is my favorite! You literally squeeze a bottle of powder into your hair to soak up any oils. It instantly refreshes hair and leaves a gorgeous scent that always reminds me of beauty school (fun fact: I went to an Aveda school for beauty school!) This one is a great option for girls with thick hair!
The award for most unique product ever goes to Aveda for creating this scalp refresher! Their Rinseless Refresh works like a micellar water for your face would. It acts as a magnet for dirt and oil on your scalp. Application tip: spray about 6 inches away from scalp, lifting up sections of hair as you go. Let the liquid sit on your scalp for about 10 minutes, then blow dry for 5 minutes or less. Your hair will feel so incredibly clean!
Drugstore Dry Shampoos
All hail the OG of dry shampoos! What would any of us do without Batiste! Batiste dry shampoos come in a ton of different scents, finishes, and even shades for darker hair tones. Their dry shampoo for brunettes is my favorite dark dry shampoo, as it is super undetectable in the hair! No embarrassing white marks!
Thin haired girls, you will not want to skip out on this one! Not Your Mother’s is also an OG brand when it comes to hair products at the drugstore, and their dry shampoo is so good for thin hair. The super light formula does not overpower the hair or leave a tackiness.
If you struggle with damaged hair, this dry shampoo is the one for you. Kristen Ess products have a “zip-up” technology that seals together dead ends, and makes your hair look and feel new. Plus, I absolutely love the peony scent that all of her products have. This one is always in my line-up!
I love using this dry shampoo to add volume to my hair. I even use it the day I wash my hair after I style just to break up curls in my hair and add some texture. It leaves a super fresh scent to the hair that stays all day. This one works great for all hair types, but especially those who want a little texturization!
