Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry Shampoo
Celebrity hairstylist Kristin Ess launched a line of luxe hair products at Target prices–and one of our favorite picks is this lightweight dry shampoo. It adds grit and texture but won’t weigh down fine hair. Plus, it smells heavenly.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
Batiste has been in the dry shampoo game for over 30 years—way before many of us even knew it was a thing. And after all these years, the brand remains a standby amongst beauty fanatics and beginners alike. The powdery, waterless formula absorbs grease and dirt, leaving you with a revitalized, volumized mane. When you comb it through, the powder dissolves and all but disappears. The original formula features a subtle, musky lavender scent that smells pretty amazing too.
Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo
We put this revolutionary (no, we’re not being hyperbolic) dry shampoo to the spin class test and it transformed our sweaty, post-workout hair into bouncy, shiny perfection.
Dove Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo
If you’re looking for an impressive product with a low price tag, you can’t go wrong with this dry shampoo. The lightweight, straightforward formula has become a fan-favorite over the last few years, and it’s easy to see why. Just a few spritzes are enough to absorb oil and leave your tresses feeling clean and refreshed, even after several days without a regular shampoo.
Dry Shampoo Foam
It looks and feels like a mousse, but once dry, it acts like the best dry shampoo you’ve ever used for tackling seriously greasy roots.
Garnier Pure Clean Dry Shampoo
The main concept behind dry shampoo is to address oily hair between washes, but if yours is oilier than average, this dry shampoo has your name on it. The silicon-free formula is ideal for greasier locks, as it soaks up oil and removes dirt without weighing it down. Just shake the can and spray it through your hair, holding it about 8 inches from your head. Then comb it through, and voilà! You’ve got non-greasy, voluminous, clean-looking hair.
Cantu Refresh Dry Co-wash
Made with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, apple cider vinegar, and tea tree oil, this dry shampoo cleanses and conditions natural curls without drying them out.

If your hair is over-dyed, over-dried, over-processed, or otherwise damaged, we recommend this hydrating option. As the name suggests, it’s infused with coconut water as well as coconut oil and natural tapioca. This Byrdie-editor favorite helps revive lifeless, brittle locks, leaving them clean, volumized, and refreshed.

Dry Shampoo with Nettle Oil Control
If you struggle with seriously greasy roots, this is the dry shampoo you need. The nettle in this formula works as an astringent to dry up excess oil—but it leaves a faint white cast that needs to be brushed out.
Nexxus Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist for Volume
If you’re working with fine hair, reach for Nexxus Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist. Thin hair tends to produce oil faster than thicker manes—and it definitely appears oily faster. But this absorbent formula is just the thing to relieve your locks from a greasy, sweaty, weighed-down look between washes. It adds volume and perks up even the finest hair without leaving behind any powder or visible residue.
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
Okay, so it’s not technically a dry shampoo, but this texture spray soaks up oil and gives hair volume and that cool, gritty/matte/model-off-duty feel—it’s a cult classic.
Herbal Cleanse Hair and Scalp Dry Shampoo
Ideal for braids and locs, this “dry shampoo” is made with lavender oil and basil to keep the scalp calm, cool, and moisturized.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
This award-winning product has a plant-based formula that includes organically harvested oat milk, as well as rice and corn starches.

It’s also ideal for anyone looking to extend the life of their blowout.
First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo

Curly-haired folks can benefit from using this super-nourishing formula that contains moisturizers like coconut oil and glycerin, in addition to starches that soak up oil. It’s the perfect balance of absorbent, protecting, and hydrating. Your curls will be bouncy, shiny, and fresh without any grease or frizz.

Bonus: a couple of sprays go a long way.
Perk Up Dry Shampoo
Like a mid-afternoon espresso shot for your hair, this rice starch-based spray make hair look as fresh and lively as the pretty patterned can makes us feel.
TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo
A few blasts of this dry shampoo at your roots gives instantly volume and lift while soaking up excess oil. Use it to refresh hair after a long day or on second-day hair.
Batiste with a Hint of Color Divine Dark
Although the best dry shampoos don’t leave any visible residue, the formulas are usually powdery by nature, which can be a little more noticeable on dark locks. That’s why this blend is ideal for those with deep brown or black hair. The tinted formula blends seamlessly with darker hair colors, and there’s also a lighter version available for medium brown tones. Like the original formula, this dry shampoo instantly absorbs oil, refreshes dull strands, and adds the perfect amount of volume.
Detox Original Scent Dry Shampoo
You’d expect a brand like Drybar to make a covetable dry shampoo (they’ve got “dry” right there in the name, after all) and this yuzu extract-infused version does not disappoint.
Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo
Not only is the formula 90-percent naturally-derived, but it’s also one of the best formulas we’ve ever used for tackling serious oil without irritating your scalp. The blend of charcoal and clay absorbs serious oil and the aerosol-free delivery pump is better for the environment.
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Dry Shampoo
If your hair is blond, gray, silver, white, or otherwise light, check out this Bydrie-editor favorite. The appeal of this product is clear—literally. It quickly absorbs oil and leaves locks feeling clean without any visible residue, and the matte finish complements light-colored hair. Just spray it throughout your hair, focusing on the roots. Then wait about a minute, run a comb through your hair, and style as you normally do.
Some dry shampoos can leave dark hair with a powdered wig effect. That’s why this argan oil-infused version comes in two formulations: one for light hair, and one for darker tones.
Bb. Pret-a-Powder Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo with French Pink Clay
This sheer formula doesn’t just tackle sweat and oil, it also protects hair from drying out due to UV damage.
