Dry shampoo is an absolute staple for any hair care routine—especially if you like to skip a shampoo session or two. They’re our go-to for reviving greasy hair and making second-day styles look fabulous, but it seems like blondes have all the luck finding formulas that blend seamlessly into their strands. Unfortunately, the powdery white sprays can leave deeper shades with a chalky white film that makes dark brown hair look gray.

Luckily, some of our favorite hair care brands heard our pleas for dry shampoos that aren’t super noticable on dark hair. Wondering which one is right for you? Keep scrolling for the 10 formulas you’re going to love if you have darker tresses.
