Dry Shampoo: The Good, The Better, and The Best

Gone are the days of washing your hair every day. Times they are a-changin! Back in the early 2000s, dry shampoo wasn’t a thing, at least it wasn’t something I knew about. Fast forward and here we are, given the glorious gift of dry shampoo.

After the gym, my hair is, gross. I usually blow-dry the sweat back in and go to town on the dry shampoo. I only wash my hair every 4-5 days, sometimes longer if I can stand it. I have tried so many different brands, too many, and have narrowed it down to the good, the better, and the best.

The good: Batiste

Batiste is really good for a good price point. There are a few different smells and color cans, I honestly am a sucker for the original! I do have to use this almost every day as it doesn’t seem to last as long as the others.

The better: Biolage

With the amazing smell of their shampoo & conditioner, this dry shampoo is wonderful. I find I can go 2 days or so without reapplying. It does take some good massaging into the scalp but still a good product.

The best: Moroccanoil

Ladies, this is the BEST dry shampoo I have EVER used. The smell, the fact that you can get a light tone or dark tone color, chef’s kiss! I remember having brunette hair and dealing with the powdered look, no thank you. I am blonde now, so I use the light tone, but I have used the dark tone when I was darker and it was awesome! It is not the cheapest, but one of those purchases for me that is so worth it, like Botox.

Here are some other dry shampoo favorites from some of our Louisiana Moms:

Affordable: Dove Volume & Fullness, Hask, and Not Your Mother’s

Pricey: Ousi, Dry Bar Detox, Aveda Shampowder, Living Proof, Lange, and Kerastase
