Dove Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo Volume & Fullness: $3.19
For starters, this product is a whopping $3. So if you’re grooming on a budget, this is a great place to start. More than 2100 reviews gave it five stars, as it features a light, fresh scent and instantly absorbs oil.
“The only dry shampoo I’ll use!” one reviewer wrote. “All the other products tend to be overpriced, and this one is consistent! A little goes a long way which isn’t often for dry shampoo. It gives me volume similar to how Drybar’s texture spray does. Worth the money and a must-have staple in hair care products!”
Batiste Original Dry Shampoo Classic Clean: $8.29
Praised by Target for being “the world’s #1 dry shampoo,” the waterless formula absorbs dirt and grease to revitalize dull and lifeless hair. It’s also now made with keratin.
One five-star reviewer wrote, “I’m in love with this product. Immediate results and lasting! I’m so happy I grabbed it, I’ve seen this everywhere and finally picked it up. Definitely recommend over any dry shampoo I’ve ever used.”
Garnier Fructis Invisible Dry Shampoo Melon-Tini: $4.94
At just under $5, you can’t go wrong with a drugstore dry shampoo that provides instant oil absorption without the white residue. And hey, who doesn’t love a classic fruity scent to their hair products? The rice starch-formulated formula is silicone-free for flat, normal and oily strands.
“As a toddler mom who has very little time to ‘take care of herself,’ this product is a lifesaver,” one reviewer raved. “I use this in between showering and washing my hair. It smells amazing and doesn’t leave my hair feeling oily or too dry. This is by far one of my favorite dry shampoo’s I’ve tried!”
Eva NYC Freshen Up Invisible Dry Shampoo: $11.99
Made with natural rice starch, Vitamin C and fatty acids, this gentle hair product enhances shine, nourishes and repairs, without leaving residue.
92% of Target users positively rate the spray, with one reviewer writing: “I have very fine hair. I hate when dry shampoo weighs my hair down and makes it feel heavy and gross. This is so light. My hair doesn’t look greasy, but still feels so soft. I have bought expensive dry and cheap dry shampoo, but keep coming back to this brand. I have used a different dry shampoo by them (pink packaging) and was nervous I wouldn’t like this one, but I love it!”
