This blog is a field guide to all the dry-shampoos I use behind the chair, have used in the past, and have at home in my own bathroom.

Starting from the left of the above picture:

Oribe Dry Shampoo- Gives texture that sleeps in well. I usually can’t run my hands through my roots after using this product- but in my opinion, that’s a good thing. My oil seems to diminish and it doesn’t leave any white residue. Also, the smell is on POINT! ($$$$)

Loreal Next Day Hair- Light weight texture and versatile enough for every day styling and updos. Not my favorite scent, but definitely a great product. ($$$)

Living Proof PDH Dry Shampoo- I can spray my whole head with this and it will go a little chalky, but just as soon as I brush through it the white color is gone. I am a big fan of Living Proof and I always have this on hand at the salon and in my gym bag. ($$$)

Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast- I am not sure if this one is necessarily meant to absorb oils, but it gives great LIFT on dull, lifeless hair. It does give a matte effect to the shine of oily hair. ($$$)

IGK Jet Lag Invisible Dry Shampoo- This one mimics the smell of The Drybar brand they sell at Sephora. One can lasts me QUITE a while using it on myself and clients. A perk is that it’s like vanilla sugar and compares well to the Living Proof PHD dry shampoo as far as wearability. ($$$)

Redken Windblown- I used this because I am a fan of Redken, but it hasn’t been my favorite product. Great for up styles at weddings, but I personally don’t like the way it smells or wears daily. Not as absorbent as I would like, almost feels wet at first after spraying. ($$)

CHI Dry Shampoo- HUGE fan of the smell, as well as everyone I have ever used this on at weddings; think Abercrombie & Fitch department store from high school. The bonus is that it is so strong it could double as perfume. Great for daily wear- scent could over power after time. ($$)

Verb Dry Shampoo- I am not usually a fan of loose powder for obvious reasons, like the MESS they make. But this version has a tiny spout for easy root/scalp application, this helps it not get all over your head and shoulders. Hold is very light, and very workable. Be sure to brush thoroughly after.
