The one beauty category that needs no best-of debate? Dry shampoo. There are more than a few options from drugstore to prestige, but nothing beats Klorane, the French pharmacy cult favorite. It’s so good that the original formula is available in hair type specific variations, which ensures this insanely good dry shampoo delivers for absolutely everyone.
And because we just lost an hour of sleep AND today happens to be National Dry Shampoo Day, I’ve partnered with Klorane to give away A LOT of their swag. So…. keep reading! I’m actually slightly jealous.
Why dry shampoo?
Time *and* life saving, dry shampoo is the most genius beauty hack ever created. By no means a replacement for your regular hair cleansing agent, this emergency treatment absorbs oil, adds volume, and extends the life of your hairstyle in literally two minutes.
A travel must-have and handbag staple, this miraculous invention is truly one of a kind and irreplaceable. Because how many times do you wish you could skip washing your hair and still look like you did? My point exactly.
So what is it exactly?
The science behind dry shampoo boils down to one magic ingredient: rice starch. Ultra fine and and most commonly propelled by an aerosol dispenser, it blows through your weathered hair, freshes up the scalp, eliminates oily roots, and lifts limp hair with a light hold. Think makeover results without a drop of water.
Klorane vs the rest
What makes Klorane such a superhero within the dry shampoo space? In addition to its working like a dream and never leaving behind a chalky streak? Four flawless formulas that cater to every need include:
- Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – white cap, the original that started it all, all hair types, a classic
- Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk Natural Tint – clear cap, lightly tinted and absolutely traceless on dark hair (my favorite)
- Dry Shampoo with Nettle – green cap, ideal for those with especially oily hair
- Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk Aerosol Free – twist top, this pure and eco-friendly packaging is the TSA friendly option
How to use it?
The most important piece of advice I have for you regarding dry shampoo: less is more. Do not spray it directly on the scalp. Instead, aim somewhere between the root and mid-shaft. I start with 4-5 quick ‘shots’, wait a minute to let the powder set, and then use my fingers to ‘work it in’. A brush works even better.
While all Klorane formulas are great for ‘frequent use’, if you find yourself using it exclusively every day of the week, it’s time to get a cute hat, re-evaluate your work life balance or pack up that tent and seek a source of running water. Frequently does not mean everyday. It means: habitually, often. What I’m trying to say is, always have it on hand, but use on an emergency basis.
