If you haven't yet, it's time for you to add dry shampoo to your curly hair care toolbox. Most curly girls try to go several days between washes or shampoos. However, that can leave your hair feeling oily and weighed down. A good dry shampoo can breathe life back into flat, greasy hair and give you a few days before you need to wash again.
Batiste Dry Shampoo:
This dry shampoo is only $8, which makes it a great deal. It's formulated with rice starch as opposed to corn starch, which makes it absorb oil quickly. It comes in a wide array of scents so you can pick your favorite. As an added bonus, this line also offers tinted dry shampoos, which makes it great for curlies with darker hair or who want to cover up their roots between visits to their colorist.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk:
This dry shampoo is a great option for people who need some extra volume for flattened out curls and want to revive second (or third, or fourth) day strands. The oat mill helps add in some extra moisture so you don't get a dry, straw like texture.
Bedhead Dirty Secret:
If you need a dry shampoo that packs a punch and can sop up the most oil, pick up a can of Bedhead. It does a fantastic job at absorbing excess oil and adds great volume as well as texture. If you spray it too closely to the scalp you might notice it leaves behind some white residue, but this can be easily brushed or combed out once it's fully dried.
Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray:
At $42, this dry shampoo is at the top of the price point, but it works great for all types of curly hair. It doesn't leave behind any sticky residue. Stylists love it because it adds instant volume and lift to limp curls. It also has a fantastic scent.
