If you’re as busy as we are, you typically don’t wash and dry your hair every morning — after all, it can be a long, arduous process full of waiting, heating and styling. Which is why we don’t know what we ever did before the invention of dry shampoo. Talk about an absolute game changer.
Typically, dry shampoos come in spray or powder form, and the best dry shampoos not only soak up oil, they clean hair, water-free, and leave you smelling fresh. Plus, for those of you who have the time to wash your hair every day (or just happen to be a little less tolerant of dirt), dry shampoos give your hair a volume boost. At least, that’s what the good dry shampoos do. Not all dry shampoos are created equal. Which ones are just alright and which ones fall flat.
