I’ve been wanting to switch to a natural dry shampoo, so I asked for your recommendations and tried a bunch of them!
I’ve been slowly trying to add more clean products to my routine, and one that I’ve been wanting to try for a while is natural dry shampoo.
I exercise everyday and only wash my hair once a week, so I use quite a bit of dry shampoo to keep my hair from looking greasy.
Since I use dry shampoo so much and so often, I want to switch to natural dry shampoo, so I asked for your favorites over on Instagram and ordered a few to try.
Here are the top recommended natural dry shampoos:
- Just Ingredients
- Living Proof
- Primally Pure
- Hairitage by Mindy
- Trader Joes
- So many of you recommended making your own dry shampoo with cornstarch and cocoa powder
Here are the dry shampoos I’ve tried, and what I thought
BILLIE DRY SHAMPOO. I’ve been using this one for the last year and I actually like it a lot. I use the brunette version, and I think the only thing I don’t love about it is that I have to shake it out and I always get it on my face and my clothes. It works well and my hair feels clean and the powder form soaks up any oils in my hair. It also doesn’t have any smell. I highly recommend this one.
JUST INGREDIENTS DRY SHAMPOO. Use Code MERRICK for a disocunt! This was the number one most recommended. I ordered it and I actually love it. It smells like vanilla, and the application is kind of like a squire bottle but it’s not a spray so you don’t deal with an aerosol can. This one made my hair feel and look clean. I bought the brunette version.
BRIOGEO DRY SHAMPOO. Honestly I didn’t love this one. They didn’t have a brunette version, so the white powder was very obvious on my darker roots. Also I don’t love the applicator. It’s like a squeeze bottle, but not super easy to get out.
PRIMALLY PURE DRY SHAMPOO. This one comes in dark and light colors, so I bought the dark and I actually like it. It’s a good price, and it went on nicely without leaving much residue. The powder felt really lightweight and made my hair feel clean. I recommend it!
KLORANE DRY SHAMPOO. This one comes in an aerosol bottle, which is a no-go for some people looking for natural dry shampoo, but it is paraben and sulfate free. It said it left no residue, but I had to really rub it in for the white to mostly disappear. It did create good body, but I just couldn’t get it to be totally residue free.
LIVING PROOF DRY SHAMPOO. I’ve used this one before, and I think it’s great, but it’s so pricey and a bottle doesn’t last me super long when I’m using it every day. So for me, it’s not quite as worth it. It’s in an aerosol bottle, and also comes out as a white spray, but I feel like it rubbed it better with less effort. Also it gives great body.
ACURE DRY SHAMPOO. This comes in a lighter and darker hair version, but when I used it, I was super disappointed to find that the dark dry shampoo was still very white! It also came out in little chunks and was harder to rub in. A little goes a long way, and if you just put a little, it works better. But if you get heavy handed, you’re going to deal with a lot of residue. Don’t love this one.
I still need to try a few of the others in the list, but I’m definitely sold on using a non aerosol dry shampoo, and the natural ingredients powders work well, are often affordable, and don’t leave residue like some of the sprays I’ve been using for years.
If you’re on the fence about switching, I highly recommend trying one or two of these!
If I had to choose one or two from this list…
My top two from this list are Billie and Just Ingredients. No residue, dark colors available, no smell or good smell, and make my hair feel and look clean.
