The 4 Best Dry Shampoo Brands

Best Dry Shampoo Brands by ITSALIWANT
I somehow did not discover dry shampoo until after college—despite my college days being the time I probably needed it most. It was a serious game-changer. Over the years I have tried so many different brands and I have finally landed on what I consider to be the best brands that range in price.


Anyone who has used dry shampoo knows that weird texture of your hair after you douse your head in the spray before running out the door late to work, school, bumble date, etc. I would say that is what I dislike most about the dry shampoos I’ve used in the past. If I’ve skipped a wash or two and want to freshen my hair why would I want to make it feel weird? Another qualm with some brands is the smell. I want something fresh and clean, not too strong like I dunked my head in perfume before I left my house. The below brands are what I’ve found to leave my hair feeling and smelling the best.Psssst Dry ShampooPsssst Dry Shampoo


I randomly bought a travel size of this dry shampoo on a trip and have since purchased the full size bottles. I’ve found this specific DS to be the least dry/powdery, aka no white hair. Psssssst! Instant Dry Shampoo is now my favorite brand out there. All the scents are mild and fresh and it leaves my hair feeling clean and smooth. You can get a large bottle for just $7!

Batiste Dry ShampooBatiste Dry Shampoo


Bastiste was my all-time favorite for years until I came across the other brands I mention. It was the first dry shampoo that didn’t leave my hair feeling like dreadlocks and I loved the different fresh scents it comes in. Back when I started using Batiste I had brown hair so it was a struggle not to over-do it and look like I had white roots—I am sure many of you brunettes can relate. Good news, Batiste sells a specific type that sprays brown! I know it sounds a little gross but it’s actually so much better than trying to blend the white spray powder into dark hair. Just like the budget friendly Pssst, you can grab a bottle of the Batiste for only $8.

Klorane Dry ShampooKlorane Dry Shampoo


I first tried this brand when it came in my FabFitFun Summer Box. I specifically use the one with oat milk and similar to the Psssst it sprays light and doesn’t leave a heavy white look on my hair. This brand is a bit more luxe and the regular size bottle runs about $20.

DryBar DetoxDryBar Detox

Detox by DryBar

I impulsively purchased a mini bottle of the Detox by DryBar while waiting in line one day. My favorite thing about this spray is the scent; it has a great “clean” fresh smell. My bff lives off of this brand and I am a big fan as well. I would say it’s more on the dry/powdery side. Similar to Klorane it will run you around $23 for a full size bottle.

    Dry shampoo is one of my favourite products! Batiste is one of my favourites, but I haven’t heard of these other ones before. I’ll have to check them out!

    Dry shampoo is such a lifesaver. I LOVE Detox and Batiste. I’ll definitely have to try the other 2!

    I am such a dry shampoo addict that I have tried all of these. I love them all. Klorane was the first one I started using right after college, but the price tag hurts. I feel like the Dry Bar one lasts longer and requires less to do the same job. But I always grab a Psst or Batiste when I see them. TJ Maxx almost always has them for $5!
