The Best Drugstore Dry Shampoos

Based on 104,250 Influenster Reviews

What did people do before dry shampoo? It's questions like this that keep us up at night. Other than penicillin, dry shampoo is quite possibly the greatest discovery known to man (or woman). It can transform your greasy roots into fresh-out-of-the-salon hair. Hair looking a little limp? Dry shampoo can turn up the volume. Need to extend a blowout? Dry shampoo has your back. We cannot praise this product enough. It's not just us who love it though. Influensters also think it's pretty amazing.

Here's our roundup of the best drugstore dry shampoos, based on almost a hundred thousand Influenster reviews. Go forth and fake clean hair. We won't tell. While you're at it, be sure to review your favorite dry shampoo. It's Beauty Awards season and we're on the hunt for the best one out there.

I'm on a never ending quest to find the best dry shampoo at the best PRICE. I've tried the $30 salon brands & the $3 drugstore brands and many, many in between. I tried the Dove on my 3-days ago washed hair and I am really pleased with the product. Most drugstore brands leave my hair just feeling stiff & thick with product. The Dove DS made my hair feel soft with no real stiff or too-thick feeling. All the other drugstore brands I've tried have been lemon scented & I end up feeling like I've just sprayed Lemon Pledge on my hair. The Dove DS has a nice soap/baby powder scent. I've read another review here & I think that they might using too much product. You want to spray a very little amount into the roots of your hair. I've used the can I have at least 20 times. #DryShampooChallenge ...read more

This is my favorite drugstore dry shampoo! I first bought it over 4 years ago after I dyed my naturally blonde hair to dark brown and have been using it ever since, even after going back blonde! Since I have color treated hair, I don't like to wash it as often and I use this 3-4 times a week.

It absorbs oil really well without making my hair feel greasy or sticky like other dry shampoos. I love how light the formula is! My hair never feels heavy or weighed down after using. It's never left a white residue on either my dark or light hair. It's a scented formula, but I don't notice much of a scent.

What I love the most about this dry shampoo is the texture it gives my thin hair. I prefer using this over the NYM dry texture spray. I even use it on days that I've washed my hair to give my roots a lift and help with teasing. I've never found a dry shampoo that texturizes like this one. I highly recommend this! ...read more

I have tried more dry shampoos than I can even list. I have experimented with expensive ones and inexpensive ones ... and, by far, this is my favorite. Foremost, it leaves hair so soft (nearly like there is nothing in it!). Every other dry shampoo I have tried leaves it stiff, sticky, or awkward (especially Victoria's Secret!) ... this is the exact opposite. It extends your blow-out for days while looking day-one gorgeous! Additionally, the smell is fantastic! it does not smell like chemicals or like hair-spray (like some others). Here the smell is fresh, citrusy, and subtle. Additionally, if you get a little carried away, it leaves VERY little white residue (unlike some that make one look like they are wearing a Victorian Powdered Wig). if this happens, run a brush or your fingers through your hair and it will quickly dissipate.

The price is just a bonus!! For one can of Tigi Rockaholic, you can buy about FOUR of these! (And, it is SOOO much better!) ...read more

I can never go more than a day without washing my oily hair if I want it to look clean. I have tried SO many drug store brand dry shampoos and salon quality dry shampoos. Nothing really worked. Then I Googled "best dry shampoos" and this was in the top five! It was $5 so I thought I would give it a shot. IT'S AMAZING! My hair has never looked so clean and full on the day after washing it. It's a miracle :) I love it and I have recommended it to everyone I know. ...read more

I've been trying so many different brands of dry shampoo. Most leave behind the power residue even after running a towel through my hair and brushing. This is the first brand I've found that the residue doesn't stay. I don't use products in my hair daily and I don't wash my hair much because the oils always get worse. This is the first dry shampoo that I 100% feel great about! I typically put my hair in a pony, but yesterday finally felt confident to leave my hair down without feeling like it was too oily! Thank you TRESemme! ...read more

Hands down the best dry shampoo I have ever used!!!!
Let me put it this way so I don't have to go into crazy detail: I have used this when my hair was bleached blonde and should have been straw like, but this stuff fed it the nutrients it needed. And currently I am dyed the blackest black ( i love extremes) and it keeps my color looking the same as it did when I walked out the salon! I am vibrant, I am moisturized and there is no frizz! ...read more

I fell in love with this product almost 2 years ago. I had dyed all of my hair a bright red, which meant I couldn't be washing it as often because it'd wash out. After trying many different brands of dry shampoo, I discovered Nexxus' and fell in love. Other brands left a heavy feeling with some residue that was very noticeable on my red hair. This one is light, comfortable, and refreshing. It made my hair appear well kept and even added a little volume to my roots. Whenever I would wash my hair, I would towel dry it, apply leave in conditioner, blow dry it, and then apply Nexxus dry shampoo. By applying it since the day I washed my hair, it made it kept it clean for a longer period of time. So much, that I went down to washing my hair once a week. This was GREAT to keep my red hair looking clean and keeping the color vibrant. #DryShampooChallenge ...read more

A cult favorite!!! I was using this before dry shampoo was cool!!! It's the best of all the affordable brands I've tried (dove, treasure, herbal, Pantene, Aussie, fructis & not your mother's). It cleans the oil away without leaving the wierd, heavy, chalky residue behind that comes with other brands. In naturally dark blonde and on me, it's not at all grey-ing or dulling. Smells fresh but not a gross, heavy fragrance. So so so the best! A MUST TRY! ...read more
