The best dry shampoo picks
The best dry shampoo picks
To lengthen the life of your wash or style, you need a good dry shampoo. Here are our favourites.
Whether you wash your hair as little as possible, or make sure to get those strands wet every other day, it doesn't hurt to have a dry shampoo on hand to keep grease at bay. Some of us have hair that gets a little oily, while others can help but watch their hair fall flat—both of which can be cured with a touch of dry shampoo. Without a full wash, treat and blowdry.
Whatever the reason, there's a bunch of great dry shampoos out there to see you through. We rounded up 11 dry shampoos with a range of features (from colour-maintaining, to scented pick-me-ups, to extra volume) so you can always look like you just stepped out of the salon.
