Though dry-shampoo options are plentiful, it’s easy to take home a letdown. Certain brands really do work better on particular hair types.

To help you avoid disappointment, here are our picks for 10 of the best brands for hair from thick to thin, dry to oily.


Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Dry Shampoo ($6 at Ulta). This product has a slightly matte finish and is great for fine hair that shows oil easily. Reviews are mixed on the scent, so take a whiff before buying.

Nexxus Volume Refreshing Mist Dry Shampoo with Pearl Extract ($12 at Target). This formula absorbs oil, adds volume and can extend the life of a hairstyle.


Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk ($20 at Sephora). A cult favorite, Klorane has a super-fine texture that works in heavy-duty times of need. It’s also great for extending the life of a blowout, no matter your hair texture.

Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Dry Shampoo with Citrus Extract ($4 at Target). Citrus extract and a silicone-free formula leaves your hair smelling amazing and looking oil-free.


Aveeno Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo ($6 at drugstores). Dry shampoo doesn’t always play well with super-fine or dry hair, but this product uses soothing seaweed extract to prevent dryness, and delivers a nice boost of volume.


Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo ($6 at Ulta). The keratin and B12 in this formula help to refresh and revive damaged hair. It removes excess oils and has a weightless, invisible formula.

Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo ($5 at Target). This formula is also infused with keratin, which works to repair damage caused by color treatments.


Psssst! Dry Shampoo ($7 at Ulta). Unlike the dry shampoos that promise to add volume, this one doesn’t — it just refreshes tresses.

Dove Refresh + Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo ($4 at Target). This lightweight formula is packed with moisturizers and leaves hair feeling soft and freshly washed.


Batiste Hint of Color Dry Shampoo ($9 at Ulta). This favorite has a powdery formula that looks like it will leave behind a residue. But once you brush it through, it’s undetectable. For really dark hair, try the Divine Dark version.
