Dry shampoo has become the standard go-to product to use in between wash days. But we want to recommend some other between wash products that work just as well as, if not better than, dry shampoo.
You might’ve heard of some of these products before, though haven’t actually used them. Consider this a sign to try them out. They’ll extend your time between washes, all while leaving your strands looking healthy, shiny, and oil-free.
Discover the products that work best for your hair type below!
1. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray: $48
Dry shampoo is great at sopping up all that excess oil and dirt. But you know what else does a fantastic job? Texturizing spray. Plus, it adds extra volume to your strands. This can be especially helpful for those with fine hair that tends to fall flat in between washes. Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray will give you the volume and texture you desire, while also soaking up grease and grime.
2. Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry Conditioner: $14
While dry shampoo works on your scalp, it doesn’t do much for your ends. That’s where dry conditioner comes in. This product is designed to add shine and tame flyaways for second-day hair. The Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry Conditioner will strengthen your weakened strands, while adding extra moisture to your locks.
3. Dove Care Between Washes Restyler Re-Styling Milk: $1
Those with wavy strands will benefit from this moisturizing restyling product. You may feel tempted to spritz on some sea salt spray, but that can leave you tresses feeling (and looking) sticky and icky. This product from Dove will give them the care they need when they haven’t been washed.
4. Living Proof No-Frizz Instant De-Frizzer: $29
All curly haired individuals know dry shampoo is bound to create some frizz flareups. To avoid that, opt for the Living Proof No-Frizz Instant De-Frizzer. It functions like a dry conditioner, taming flyaways to keep your curls looking as they should.
5. Tresemmé Between Washes Curl Reviving Styling Foam: $13.80
Meant for curls and coils, the Tresemmé Between Washes Curl Reviving Styling Foam is a saving grace. If your curls get dry fast, this foam will add a ton of moisture to leave them feeling as if they’ve been freshly washed. They’ll look like they have been, too.
6. Hairitage Day Two Hair Refresher: $7.94
The lightweight spray will refresh your strands for restyling with hot tools and help get rid of bedhead. Not only that, it will leave your locks smelling amazing with notes of hibiscus flower.
7. Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine: $28
Dry, crunchy ends can get the best of anyone in between wash days. The Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine wants to make sure that doesn’t happen. This finishing oil is here to keep your ends looking healthy.
8. Sheila Stotts Natural Boar Bristle Brush: $94
The brush you use also impacts how good your hair looks in between wash days. A boar bristle brush, like this one from Sheila Stotts, will evenly distribute the oil in your hair. Regular hair brushes tend to leave a lot of the oil at the top, but not this one. The natural boar bristles bring the oil down to the ends, where it is often needed most.
