BEST DRY SHAMPOO $20 AND UNDER

I have a confession to make, one that my hair stylist has chided me about for a while now……I used to wash my hair everyday. Yes I know, so bad. I just cannot stand the way my hair feels when it is not washed. I started the process of washing every other day and am now trying to wash every two days.

I have been on a continuous hunt for the perfect dry shampoo. I feel like I go through quite a bit of it so finding one that is decently priced is a priority. Some dry shampoos are priced on up to $40, and I have found that most moderately priced ones work just as good as the most expensive ones.

These featured dry shampoos are about the best options I have found so far.

Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo $5.99
Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo $5.99

This one is without is the most decently priced, and it works extremely well. I buy this one for my daughter on a regular basis and she loves it. it smells fresh and gets rid of oil. I find that this one doesn’t leave a ton of residue either. This actually doubles as a volumizer as well. Just spray some onto sections of your roots and tease lightly.

Milk Makeup Natural Dry Shampoo $14
Milk Makeup Natural Dry Shampoo $14

I was able to get a sample of this one, and I loved it! I love that the smell is fresh but just fades away, it works without using heavy fragrances to mask odors. You do not get a ton of product, but you only need a few sprays.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle $20
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle $20

I am OBSESSED with Klorane dry shampoos. They are amazing. I have used the oat milk version in the past and recently tried this one. I have to say it is about my favourite. It soaks up so much oil! I wouldn’t put it past this to even clean up your hair very nicely after a workout. Fresh smelling, hardly any residue, and the price isn’t too shabby either. Pretty much everything you would want in a dry shampoo.

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo $6.19
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo $6.19

This is another great one to try if you want something really affordable. You get so much product for the money as well. I constantly see good reviews for this one.

Redken Pillow Proof Dry Shampoo $20
Redken Pillow Proof Dry Shampoo $20

One of my girlfriends ,who is a hairstylist, turned me on to this one recently. I really do like it. It is uber refreshing! It has a minty aroma and sort of tingles when you apply. It hardly leaves a trace of residue. I sometimes use this in conjunction with some of the other dry shampoos I have just for the minty freshness! Ulta also has their Redken products buy 2 get 1 free, so it is the perfect time to stock up.

Klorane Oat Milk Dry Shampoo $20
Klorane Oat Milk Dry Shampoo $20

Constantly hailed as one of the best, this Allure Beauty Winner is definitely one of my top picks. It gets some of the best reviews I have seen. I love that it is gentle and will not dry out my scalp. It just leaves my hair soft, silky, and fresh. The scent is soothing and in no way overpowering. A little of this goes quite a long way so you will get your money’s worth.

THREE NEW DRY SHAMPOOS TO TRY NOW

I have a love/hate relationship with dry shampoo. Most I have tried end up leaving a sticky residue on my hair that weighs it down, then I just want to wash my hair. Some of them just smell too strong for my preference, I do not want my hair to overpower my perfume.

Currently, I am a fan of the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Powder Spray, but that will not stop me from trying to find the next best thing.

Macadamia Professional Dry Shampoo $25
Macadamia Professional Style Extend Dry Shampoo $25

This dry shampoo contains some oil absorbing starches, plus Macadamia and Argan oil for moisturizing. Some dry shampoos will dry your hair out too much, so the addition of these oils will most likely eliminate that problem, I have tried Macadamia Professional products in the past, and their Nourishing Moisture hair mask is one of my favourites. Their products always smell amazing and not too strong, so that is a plus.

Morrocanoil Dry Shampoo Light and Dark Tones $26
Morrocanoil Dry Shampoo Light and Dark Tones $26

Morrocanoil has come up with an interesting new take on dry shampoo, with two new formulas especially designed for different hair tones; one for light and one for dark. Of course with all of their products, Argan oil is going to be the key moisturizing ingredient in this. I think we can all agree that part of the appeal of Morrocanoil products is their signature scent. If this product smells like the rest of them, I am sold!

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk $20
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk $20

I love products that contain any kind of oat extract, oil, or milk. It is so soothing and good for skin and scalp. I have not tried any Klorane products yet, but this has gotten some amazing reviews already. I love that this also comes in a 1 oz. travel size, so perfect to stash in my carry on!
