I was contacted by someone from Reviews.com to tell you all about the ULTIMATE GUIDE TO DRY SHAMPOO. Their team of researchers spent forty-five hours researching, consulting stylists, and hand-testing several formulas, to create a comprehensive guide for the best dry shampoo.

From the hundreds on the market, their team narrowed it down to the fifty-four most recommended formulas. And from those fifty-four, the top five were chosen to find the overall best dry shampoo. 

How Did They Do It?

When you’re in the market for a dry shampoo, a high-quality one is expected to perform several jobs, but some of the most basic purposes are that it should absorb oil, add volume, and leave hair pleasant-smelling.

They weeded out formulas that were less than desirable based on four criteria:

  • Price was TOO HIGH 
  • Left behind a CHALKY RESIDUE
  • Gave hair an UNPLEASANT ODOR
  • Had to be applied SEVERAL TIMES for the desired effect 

Due to a lot of similarities, other factors were also considered. Pricing and size were assessed, but some of the other factors taken into consideration differentiated based on the type of dry shampoo (aerosol, powder, etc.) and individual needs.

Not familiar with the different types of dry shampoo? Don’t worry! They got that covered in the guide and even included DIY options.

Best Overall Dry Shampoo

The top pick for best dry shampoo was determined to be the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. Winning over Allure beauty editors and Birchbox customers, this company best-seller quickly revitalizes hair leaving it clean and volumized without drying out the scalp. While this formula works for all hair types, it’s best suited for those with light to medium hair color. 

But do not fret, any of the top five would work just as well. Also, if you need to consider other factors such as pricing, hair color, or hair type, several of the chosen fifty-four would make suitable options in their respective categories.
