Promising review: "I teach yoga and core fusion full time, and this helps me go two or three days without having to wash my hair. I have really long dark brown hair, and this blends perfectly into my scalp, absorbing excess oil and...best of all...gives me a ton of volume! End of day two, after teaching six to eight sweaty classes, I can put this in and my hair looks fabulous!" —Stephanie M. Johnson

Promising review: "I've tried many different brands, but this is by far my favorite. It doesn't leave buildup in your hair. It is lightweight, but does the job. Smells great. A little pricy, but worth it." —Malaya Love

Price: $19.74 (5.3 oz.) // Rating: 4.4/5

4. Zero in on greasy roots with Rapunzel's precision tip that delivers an organic, vegan formula.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I was excited to use the product because I love dry shampoo and knowing it's not a spray, I was wondering if it would do a good job. I like the smell, it's not sticky or has your head itchy afterward." —Amazon Customer

Price: $17.99 (2.1 oz.) // Rating: 5/5

5. Unlock the secret to the ~mermaid~ hair of your dreams with this aptly named Captain Blankenship Mermaid dry shampoo.

amzn.to

Promising review: "Spray dry shampoos have never worked for me. Of the loose powder ones, like this, I've tried Blow Pro and Oscar Blandi. They all seem to work equally well at dealing with second, (sometimes third), day hair, but Mermaid has a light, lovely scent and is a little easier to blend. I also like the salt-shaker style dispenser, which I wasn't expecting. Being able to partially open the top helps control the amount of product delivered." —Carrie

Price: $18.50 (2 oz.) // Rating: 4.2/5

6. Oat milk (gently) does your dirty work for you in this Klorane dry shampoo.

Promising review: "I have pink hair right now but I have had blue, purple, brunette and blonde and I used this for all of them, and it never left a weird residue. I only wash my hair once a week when I use this." —MsKaty

Price: $20 (3.2 oz.) // Rating: 4.1/5

Also available in a Natural Tint for Brunettes.

7. Freshen your selfie sitch with this clean-smelling Eva NYC spray that works on any hair type.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I've used many dry shampoos, and I like the ones that spray the best. this one does. I also like the bottle to last through more than 10 uses, and this one goes one and on, not pooping out after a few uses like some other brands. The scent is neutral and leaves you with clean hair that doesn't smell like a trip through the perfume department." —Jackie DeCesaris

Price: $11.40 (5.3 oz.) // Rating: 4.2/5

Promising review: "I have fine hair and went over 30 years washing my hair every day because it would be so oily. Now I can wake up, throw some of this into next day hair, and not only do I save a HUGE amount of time when it comes to getting ready, but my hair is fuller and thicker than I could ever get it after washing it." —Katie

Price: $24 (2.5 oz.) // Rating: 4.4/5

9. Matte-ify your locks with this saucily-named Bed Head find.

Price: $11.97 (5 oz.) // Rating: 4/5

10. Absorb oil with the mineral clay in this Tresemme formula.

13. Pretend like you weren't hanging out in a total dive last night thanks to a refresh from this Rockaholic spray.

amzn.to

Promising review: "Eliminates the greasiness at my temples and around the forehead and part. I don't get awful white residue and many people like the smell. I do need to wash my hair after 24 hours of use, as my scalp gets itchy and applying the dry shampoo again creates too much build up." —Chic in the City

Price: $12.07 (6.3 oz.) // Rating:

14. Fake it 'til you make it with super-concentrated blowpro.

amzn.to

15. Make an (invisible) impact with this shine-enhancing Rusk spray.

Price: $19 (8 oz.) // Rating: 4.3/5

16. Feel extra fancy, clean with this Caviar anti-aging potion.

17. Extend the life of your blowout and color with Alterna translucent dry shampoo.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I was hesitant because I have dark hair and every dry shampoo claims to be 'translucent' then you walk into the natural light and it looks like someone dumped baby powder on my head. This is NOT the case with this dry shampoo." —S McGee
