Instant Gorgeous
The Dry
Shampoo Refresh

Why do we love dry shampoo? It instantly reinvigorates second-, third-, and even fourth-day hair. It adds gorgeous texture, soaks up excess oil, and is also one of the more brilliant styling products we know of. Unlike pomades and gels that can weigh hair down, dry shampoo (in the clean, nontoxic world, they’re blends of cleansing, oil-absorbing clays and starches, plus refreshing flower extracts) magically dissolves into nothing as it adds volume and shine. It’s super easy to use: Deposit a small amount into your hand, gently comb it through from roots to ends with your fingers, and: done. It’s also brilliant for almost any style, from rugged and cropped to swingy and polished; day-saving when washing your hair just isn’t in the cards; and can make you feel breezily pulled-together for work, a night out, post-workout, and more. (Bonus: Both of these bottles are compact enough to fit in your bag or office desk drawer.)

These three goop staffers with decidedly different textures (and hair vibes) rely on it to take their hair from listless to tumbling or chaotic to sleek in a matter of seconds.

    KATIE BOLZ | senior product manager

  • “I’d never really thought about dry shampoo, but when I tried this one, I was surprised at the way it left my hair feeling lighter, cleaner, and softer, almost as if I’d actually washed and conditioned it. It has a fresh, citrusy smell, and it makes me feel polished (but not too polished). I do a few pumps of foam—it transforms into a powder in your hair—and run it through my curls, where it adds the perfect touch of control. Then I smooth down the sides and back of my hair. I love it right before I go out to get a little lift and a lot of shine.”

    JAMIE SY-QUIA | production designer

  • “By the end of the day, my hair always starts to look a bit dull and bedraggled. That’s fine when I’m going straight home, but if last-minute plans emerge, I tap a bit of this powder out into my hand and work it into my roots. It’s kind of shocking that in seconds my hair comes back to life. The powder adds bounce and also just makes me feel refreshed, as if I haven’t been sitting at my desk all day.”

    MINI BANKS | communications coordinator

  • “I have very few can’t-live-without products, but this is definitely one of them. I have a lot of hair, and it can get all over the place while I’m sleeping, but if I smooth a pump of this through in the morning before work, it looks a little more controlled—in a soft way. I also use it at the end of the day, when every part of me just looks tired, and honestly, I even use it midday sometimes. It smells perfect, light, and not too perfumy.”
