The Best Dry Shampoo For Every Hair Type

Coffee and dry shampoo is literally the only two things I need to get through the day. We all love dry shampoo and practically owe it our lives for the amount of time it has saved in our daily routines… and saved our asses from getting tardy warnings. While we can obsess over the volume and body it provides our hair with, we also know that depending on dry shampoo just a little too much can be equally as toxic. So if you still plan on using it (and you will), it’s important to figure out what exactly the best kind is based on your hair type. Who knew there were so many kinds besides Not Your Mother’s and Batiste? From thin to blonde to curly hair, here are the best dry shampoos for every hair type.

For Thin Hair

This super lightweight powder absorbs oil and provides the right amount of volume without weighing your hair down. The added charcoal serves as a better and healthier alternative for a talc-free powder that still uplifts your hair and keeps it smelling fab.

This differs from other dry shampoos on the market in the sense that it doesn’t just sit on top of your hair, adding to already existing build-up. This formula removes all unnecessary oil, sweat, and odor, leaves it smelling clean, and easily washes off in the shower.
