Dry Shampoo

Dry Shampoo

I've used a lot of dry shampoo in my days. Pretty much, if it is under 10 dolla dolla bills I will try it. My goal is to find one that I can use every day, doesn't leave a chalky feel or a white residue, all under $10. {{Disclaimer: I have fine, thin hair but A LOT of it. How these products work on my hair may not be the same on yours.}} 

Not Your Mother's is my holy grail dry shampoo. If you use too much it will leave a white residue, but it doesn't feel heavy, smells ok, really gives body,  soaks up oil, and is under $5. Con: I can only find it at Wal-Mart around me. 

Suave Keratin Infused and Suave Professionals both feel heavy on my hair, leave behind a chalky feel, spray white, and smell yuck. Pro: Costs less than $4 and can be found everywhere.  

Tresemme is not one that I recommend at all. Cons: chalky, white residue, leaves hair feeling heavy and dull, doesn't soak up oil all day. 

Batiste is a good one. I love that it comes in a variety of scents and colors/shades, so it doesn't leave a chalky look or nasty scent.  Con: Cost $8 and I can only find it at Ulta or another beauty store 

Garnier Fructis is a good dory shampoo as well. Much like the NYM, if you use too much it will leave a chalky look, but it doesn't spray out white, doesn't have an unpleasant scent, and leaves my hair with body. 

Vidal Sassoon is a surprise hit for me! I tried it because it was on clearance and I had a coupon and I LOVED IT! It is my second holy grail dry shampoo, which shocked me. It comes in shades, so it left no chalky residue, didn't leave a heavy feel, and smelled good. Bonus: COUPONS! I got mine for less than $2. 

PSSSST! is one that I am trying now and am finding that I like. It has a pleasant scent, goes on clear (again, white if you use too much), smells good, and leaves my hair feeling clean. 

Herbal Essence is one that I truthfully don't have much of an opinion on. It works, but not amazing. There aren't any major drawbacks to it, I just like others better. It is definitely an option that I buy when I have coupons for that brand. 

Do you have any dry shampoos that you swear by? Share!


  1. My favorite so far has been Batiste. I find mine at Marshall's and TJ Maxx for $5.99 so it is a little bit more wallet friendly.

  2. i dont use it but everyone i know who does swears by Batiste.

  3. I'm a super cheapskate and just use baby powder. I'm blonde, I can get away with it, as long as I put it on the night before. Brush in the morning and I'm good to go!

  4. NYM is my holy grail too! It's the BEST! I couldn't live without it. I LOVE their beach spray in the summer too. :) Hope you're having a great week, Tracie!
