Best Dry Shampoo

Best Dry Shampoo
1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Over the past year, I have really tried to cut back on the amount of times I wash and dry my hair each week.  I have been on a mission to find the best dry shampoo, and have found a couple that I love.  I used to wash my hair every single morning, but that is not healthy for you hair, at all.  I noticed I lost a lot of hair each time I washed it, and decided that I could not continue to let my hair thin out.  Instead, I use dry shampoo on mornings I don't wash my hair, and it has made a world of difference.  Not only do I have more time in the mornings (when I don't wash, dry, and curl my hair), but I feel much better knowing that I'm not applying a bunch of heat and products to my hair and causing it to break and thin out.  Sometimes, it's nice to give your hair a break.  Having blonde hair makes it a little harder to reduce the amount of times I wash it each week because you can tell if it gets oily.  Plus, not to mention, I use quite a few curling products to make it curly (see my favorites here).  
This is my favorite shampoo at the moment.

So, for example, I might wash my hair on a Sunday night and sleep in a hair turbie (I use this one), dry/curl it Monday morning, use dry shampoo Tuesday morning and spray my hair with hair spray, then wash it Tuesday night.  Depending on how humid it is, I may can get away with not washing it Wednesday morning (and instead using dry shampoo), but usually I have to go ahead and repeat the entire process due to all the hair products.  

Some of my friends with dark hair can get by with only washing their hair once a week!  I definitely can't do that, but thanks to some of these products, I can at least cut back on the amount of times I wash and dry my hair a few times each week, which will ultimately make it stronger and more healthy in the long run.  
Without further adieu, here are a few of the dry shampoos I have tried:

Ouai: This is my favorite dry shampoo that I have used thus far!!  It is a bit pricey, but well worth the investment.  A little dry shampoo goes a long way, and Ouai does a great job absorbing all the oil and residue.  It is also very light, and will not weigh your hair down.  I highly, highly recommend Ouai, and definitely want to try some of their other hair products.

Moroccan oil:  I have used Moroccanoil hair products for years.  I love the hair serum and apply it to my hair right after I wash it.  This is an amazing dry shampoo.  It is so easy to use and smells wonderful.  I have been able to go 2 full days without washing my hair with this dry shampoo, which is a major time and life-saver! I definitely recommend Moroccanoil.

Batiste: You really get your bang for your buck with Batiste.  This dry shampoo is amazing.  Also, it is very affordable.  Batiste is very popular with bloggers and I have only heard great things about it.  I plan on ordering more and taking some to Italy in September!

Kevin Murphy:  I received a free bottle of this dry shampoo at a blogger event and was not over-the-moon excited about it.  It is still a good dry shampoo and it could be that it works better on different hair types, but I had to use quite a bit and felt like it weighed my hair down at times.

Living Proof: This is an ok dry shampoo, in my opinion.  It has been a while since I have used it, but I remember not being totally blown away by it.  I would give it another shot since my hair has changed since I last used it.  From what I recall, my hair felt stiff and it left behind a sticky residue.

Do you have a favorite dry shampoo??  I am dying to try this Drybar dry shampoo next!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
