Even though my hair is super short, it still feels like an undertaking when it comes time to wash it. I’m also obsessed with feeling clean. I shower at least twice (and sometimes three) times a day, so it really stresses me out when my hair feels even slightly greasy. We all know that washing your hair every day isn’t good for it, but unfortunately that’s exactly what I find myself wanting to do. I need to find an alternative solution.

With the influx of dry shampoos in the market, I started trying all kinds of different brands and variations to find one I really liked. At this point, it could probably be called market research given the number of dry shampoo bottles that have come in and out of my life. Anyways, I think I have finally come up with the three best dry shampoos that really stand apart from the alternatives.

AMIKA Perk Up Dry Shampoo


For starters, the bottle is seriously cute. There are actually a few products form the AMIKA collection that are in my top picks, but more on that later. Their dry shampoo has the best scent of any that I’ve used and doesn’t leave behind white residue. It is the most volumizing of the three in this post if that’s a priority for you, but this also means that it changes the texture of your hair. I love using this product when I want big, textured and clean looking hair.

CAKE The ‘Do Gooder Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray


This product’s ability to soak up oil is monumental, but it does create some buildup or product and gets itchy once it has been in there for a day. It’s all natural, so this is definitely the one to pick if that’s a priority for you. The scent isn’t my fave, but it is by far the most effective if you have super dirty hair and need a quick fix.

REDKEN Pillow Proof Oil Absorbing Dry Shampoo 


This product just launched within that past few weeks, so it’s a new discovery of mine, but quickly became a top pick. This dry shampoo is unlike any others I’ve tried in that it virtually feels like nothing is in your hair. They recommend that you put it in before your hair gets greasy instead of what’s the oil is already there. If you’re looking for something to use on the daily, this is definitely the one to pick. It also smells like heaven!
