According to experts, it’s not good to wash your hair every day as shampoo can strip your hair of color, thin it out and more. If your hair is anything like mine, it gets greasy after not washing it for a day. Dry shampoo really comes in handy when your hair gets greasy and you’re running late.


Batiste is my go-to dry shampoo, I love the way it makes my hair feel after using it. Batiste comes with many different scents, ranging from bold scents to none. I have dark hair and hate when dry shampoos leave my hair white — with Batiste, I don’t have that problem. They offer products with hints of color in them so you don’t have to worry about the whiteness. Batiste offers aerosol cans and a new foam bottle.


If you are willing to spend a little more money on a dry shampoo, try Aveda. This dry shampoo comes in a squeeze bottle, providing a more eco-friendly application. It’s filled with 25 flower and plant essences that leave your hair smelling amazing. The rest of its components work gently to cleanse hair.


Living Proof is another dry shampoo on the expensive side, but worth the money. This dry shampoo works hard to actually cleanse your hair;  it removes oil, sweat and odor. The scent is light and fresh.
