Yes, National Dry Shampoo Day is real. Our obsession with dry shampoo began about ten years ago, but little did we know of all the harm it can do to our hair, scalp, and the environment. No, we have not given up on dry shampoo entirely. In fact, giving our hair a break during the pandemic has made us want to use it even more. If you are in need of a cleaner dry shampoo, look no further. We compiled a list of our top eight brands to try, and fall in love with right now.
Vegamour has become synonymous with hair wellness. This modern brand focuses on hair growth and their GRO Dry Shampoo is no different. The plant-based dry shampoo is fortified with the same proprietary blend of phyto-active ingredients found in their best-selling GRO Hair Serum. Using it will ensure a healthy hair ecosystem, plus the volume and texture you desire. It is 100% vegan, clean and cruelty-free.
Lulu Organics packaging will stop you in your tracks. For anyone who likes handmade products and a bit of glam, this is the brand to know and proudly display on your vanity. With six different scent options, fresh smelling hair has never been easier. It works like all other powder dry shampoos- sprinkle a bit of the powder in your palm and work it through you hair. You will be pleased to know that it is talc-free, cruelty-free and gluten-free.
Raise your hand if you love a good multitasker. Cleo + Coco is known for their deodorants and dedication to natural beauty. The new Dry Shampoo and Body Powder packaging really draws you in. The powder comes out of a convenient pump, and you can use it to absorb moisture anyplace you need it. The natural product keep you dry, day and night, usingvegetable powders, activated charcoal, bentonite clay, and essential oils for unique freshness.
No helmet hair here. Unlike a lot of dry shampoos, Act + Acre supports the health of your hair. Get ready for soft hair and easy blending for all hair colors. This brand uses fulvic acid, a super-nutrient extracted from organic plant matter, plus rice and tapioca powders to make a product that is both safe and effective.
For a truly clean dry shampoo, go for Acure. Acure is Organic, Paraben free, Sulfate free, Mineral oil free, Petrolatum free, Formaldehyde free and Cruelty free. They even have an option for brunette to dark hair types. This is important because darker hair types often struggle with the white residue left behind by most dry shampoos. It also means less build up and a cleaner scalp.
Green & Gorgeous makes gentle and organic products that work. Their 100% vegan, organic, sulfate free, talc free dry shampoos are gentle on your hair, but deliver the necessary volume. The great smelling powder absorbs excess oil, leaving your scalp clean and your hair silky smooth. They even have an aerosol-free powder spray option.

Plus this plant-based dry shampoo is packaged in an environmentally friendly non-aerosol dispenser. It’s a win-win.
The Mermaid Dry Shampoo is one of the more unique products on our list. Not because it works better than the others, but because of it’s name and scent. It smells like wild roses and an ocean breeze, just what a city girl needs. It does the job by providing you with volume, grease absorption, and no residue build up. The formula is made with organic ingredients, all within a compostable tube.
