The Best Drugstore Dry Shampoos

Based on 153,221 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 thousands of 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.

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
