For those days when you just can’t.
When the going gets tough, the tough stock up on dry shampoo. You never know when you’ll need a quick refresh or when you’ll end up with a morning where there is just no time to wash your hair (don’t act like you haven’t been there before). And this is why we keep bottles of our favorite dry shampoo at our desk, in our purse, in our gym bag—really anywhere we can fit one. While we’ve been lucky enough to try a million brands as editors, we pretty much all have one brand to which we remain loyal (just like our conditioners). Find our faves below.
“Don’t quote me on this, but I believe Batiste was the first dry shampoo. At least, for me, it was an entirely new concept at the time. Since then, I’ve picked up and sprayed any dry shampoo that’s landed on my desk, but I’ve always gone back to my OG. I’m obsessed with the smell—light, powdery, and not overpowering—and because I’m one who loves to constantly run my fingers through my hair, I love that it’s not chalky but still soaks up second-day oil.” —Noah Lehava, Senior Editor: Health and Wellness
