Fashion + Beauty Friday – Dry Shampoo Review + Our Mom Picks



Do you use dry shampoo?  Have you found your favorite one?  I thought that instead of just telling you about the ones that I have tried, I would ask some of our contributors for their opinions as well. We shared our top 5 brands.

If you haven’t tried dry shampoo, you totally should!  Most of them come as sprays, although there are some powders that you apply by shaking.  I prefer the ones in a spray can for ease and convenience.  You put them on your hair, well actually at your scalp/root of your hair, and let them DO THE WORK! They soak up the greases from your hair and give it volume, leaving your locks fresh and clean…well at least it feels and looks clean! 😉  A new tip that I have discovered is applying the dry shampoo at night if I know I will not be washing my hair in the morning.  This way, it has all night to do it’s magic and I don’t really have to rub it in or comb it through my hair.  The next morning, I wake up with grease-free, voluminous hair.  Great huh?!

Stacey (short-medium length, thick hair) loves Drybar’s Detox Dry Shampoo:

I have used others that have left my hair with a gray/white hue but this one does not.  Like all of Drybar’s products they work and smell great!

Drybar’s Detox Dry Shampoo is available at Sephora for $20 (3.5 oz.)


Mandi (stick-straight, fine hair) swears by Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray:

Suave dry shampoo is the only one that gives my hair volume, cleans it and doesn’t leave a white residue! Not to mention it is under $3 and smells GREAT!!!! I have tried so many and this one takes the cake!!!!!

Elisa (curly, fine hair) also says that the Suave Dry Shampoo works for her per Mandi’s recommendation.

Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray is available in most stores…Walgreens, CVS, Target, Walmart, etc… for $2.88 (5 oz.)


I have tried a few myself including Pssssst! Instant Dry Shampoo ($5.99 for 5.3 oz.), Klorane Extra-Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk ($9.20 for 5.07 oz.), and Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo ($6.29 for 4.9 oz.).

My favorite would have to be the Klorane although if you use too much it can make your hair look a bit chalky.  I don’t think I have found “the one” quite yet, and I did happen to pick up the Suave version that I can’t wait to try out.

What is your favorite dry shampoo or are you still searching to find what works for you?


  1. I love Suave because it smells good and works great, but I became a dry shampoo addict because of Pssst!

    I am blonde, so I don’t have the same trouble with them giving my hair a chalky color, but I know here are a few brands that are tinted to help the brunettes out.

  2. I have dark, thick hair.

    I use the Dove sometimes. It’s cheap and works great, but it smells like baby powder.

    Now I usually use my own. 1/2 unsweetened cocoa powder and 1/2 cornstarch. Then add peppermint essential oil drops! Mix it all together and apply with a blush or powder brush. Works and smells great!

    If you have dark red hair, cinnamon also works or you can blend it with the cocoa for a reddish brown!
