The Reviews Are In: These Are the Very Best Dry Shampoos You Can Get at Sephora
OK, now that we've established we don't need to shower every day, let's get real about washing our hair, too. If you're not seeing anyone other than yourself in the mirror, are you still washing (and styling) hair as frequently as you did back when you were leaving the house regularly?
We'll be the first to admit that we're stretching time between washes, and know that dry shampoo can be our partner-in-crime in these situations. But what better time to see which dry shampoos can make our hair look — and feel — fresher than ever . . . than when it's far from fresh? All of these products have earned at least four stars or more from other Sephora shoppers — and we're feeling less alone in this already.
Find the best dry shampoos at Sephora ahead, just in case you too are tempted to go one more day.
Bumble and Bumble Bb. Pret-a-Powder Tres Invisible Nourishing Dry Shampoo
Not only does this top-rated Bumble and Bumble Bb. Pret-a-Powder Tres Invisible Nourishing Dry Shampoo ($29-$47) help cleanse, it ensures your ends are taken care of at the same time. Plus, there are UV filters inside to protect against the sun (which can dry out hair and cause fading).
Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Sheer Dry Shampoo Powder Spray
The Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Sheer Dry Shampoo Powder Spray ($25) is a lightweight mist that can refresh styles between washes as sheer, talc-free powder absorbs unwanted oil, moisture, and other impurities, and leaves hair looking and feeling fresh. It's well-regarded by other Sephora shoppers and several note that there's also no white cast on brown hair with this product either.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle Oil Control
The plant-based Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle Oil Control ($10-$20) is a top choice for oily hair because the nettle extract both absorbs and regulates oil production in the future. Of course, there's also corn and rice starch inside this fast-acting product to cleanse hair so it feels refreshed and bouncy, too.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo
This Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo ($14-$36) has more than 3,500 reviews and 83,000 loves from other shoppers. Not only does it help hair look refreshed, it uses a triple-action cleaning technology (and the brand's "healthy hair molecule") to soak up sweat, oil, dirt, and odors so it smells and feels great at the same time.
Kérastase Fresh Affair Fine Fragrance Dry Shampoo
The new, top-rated Kérastase Fresh Affair Fine Fragrance Dry Shampoo ($19) uses rice starch and vitamin E to absorb excess oil, and adds in sweet neroli to make hair smell great too.
Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light Tones
Both the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light Tones ($12-$26) and the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark Tones ($12-$26) have earned top marks from other shoppers . . . and use argan oil to hydrate hair and keep it healthy (with rice starch to absorb the oils). The key difference is that the light-toned option has violet pigments to balance out brassiness and the dark one won't leave brunettes with chalky-looking hair that no one wants.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
The Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo ($10-$25) has no aluminum, talc, or added color inside but it does have more than 1,100 reviews and 40,000 loves at Sephora. This dry shampoo protects and moisturizes hair with sea buckthorn berry, and leaves it soft, revitalized, and feeling cleaner.
Bumble and Bumble Prêt-à-Powder
The Bumble and Bumble Prêt-à-Powder ($13-$28) — with more than 1,200 reviews — is not in a spray bottle like many other dry shampoos. Instead, you sprinkle it directly on your roots and massage it in. This solid option can also add volume, whether you're wearing your hair down, in a ponytail, or sporting another updo style.
Ouai Super Dry Shampoo
The highly absorbent Ouai Super Dry Shampoo ($24) also features volcanic minerals to detoxify your hair and scalp as they reduce oil. With an average 4.4-star rating from other Sephora shoppers, this dry shampoo features adaptogenic rhodiola rosea extract to fight free radicals (so your hair is healthy and strong).
Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder Post Workout Dry Shampoo Mist
The new Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder Post Workout Dry Shampoo Mist ($15-$30) tackles damp hair, whether it's from humidity or an intense workout. This "wet" dry shampoo is already popular with Sephora shoppers — and POPSUGAR editors — for its lightweight feel that leaves hair feeling totally refreshed and free from odors (of sweat smells or sweet coverups).
Tarte Hair Goals Dry Shampoo
The top-rated Tarte Hair Goals Dry Shampoo ($19) absorbs dirt, oil, sweat, and odor with rice starch. This vegan, sulfate-free dry shampoo also uses the same natural thickeners and conditioners found in the brand's best-selling mascara so hair gets the same volume boost and hold that your lashes get, too.
IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo
This IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo ($14-$27) can work on different textures from fine to coarse, and helps remove build up and reduce odors in all. The oil-reducing charcoal powder and scalp-soothing white tea powder that make this option powerful enough to work well after a sweaty workout, too.
(There's also a travel-size IGK Flight Club Dry Shampoo Travel Set ($28) with this option and ones for light and medium cleansing as well.)
Sachajuan Dark Dry Powder Shampoo
The Sachajuan Dark Dry Powder Shampoo ($37) has a darker pigment that offers a matte finish to hair and helps cover roots in between color treatments. This product, along with the regular Sachajuan Dry Powder Shampoo ($37), boost freshness and volume in long and short styles, too.
Shu Uemura Dry Cleaner Shampoo
This water-free Shu Uemura Dry Cleaner Shampoo ($39) lifts roots and absorbs oils without leaving visible residue. It also features nourishing musk rose oil and protective goji berries that help preserve hair's color and give it strength at the same time.
Verb Dry Shampoo for Light Hair
The grapefruit and oatmeal blend in the Verb Dry Shampoo for Light Hair ($18) and Verb Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair ($18) can preserve blowouts by reducing oil and impurities in the hair, and add volume, too. Both the purple-toned version for blondes and the beige-undertoned option for brunettes are popular with other Sephora shoppers as well.
Virtue Refresh Dry Shampoo
The top-rated Virtue Refresh Dry Shampoo ($16-$32) uses tapioca starch, kaolin clay, and keratin to remove impurities from your scalp and leaves hair feeling refreshed. Plus, there aren't any heavy ingredients inside that can weigh hair down even more, and the lemon, cedar, and orange essential oils give it a fresh, energizing fragrance, too.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk ($10-$29) uses that ingredient to soothe the scalp, along with corn and rice starch to cleanse. This product is popular for adding extra volume and texture (in addition to absorbing oil), and has an average 4.4-star rating from other Sephora shoppers.
There's also a Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk Duo ($20) with a mini and full-sized bottle packed together (valued at $30).
Bumble and Bumble Bb. Pret-a-Powder Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo with French Pink Clay
The Bumble and Bumble Bb. Pret-a-Powder Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo with French Pink Clay ($15-$47) is roundly praised by other Sephora shoppers for how well it tackles oily roots while leaving no visible residue. This one absorbs oil and leaves hair softer and cleaner thanks to the French pink clay inside.
