We love how refreshed our hair feels after it’s freshly washed. So much so that we wish our hair felt like that every day of the week. Unfortunately, like most people—we don’t have time to wash our locks every day. Lucky for us, there’s a way to refresh our hair without stepping in the shower: dry shampoo.

While dry shampoo should never replace your regular shampoo and conditioner routine, it’s a great way to refresh your hair between washes. If you’re looking for a dry shampoo that will leave your hair feeling like it’s freshly washed on day four, we’ve rounded up three dry shampoos from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands we’re currently obsessing over.

If you just got a blow out:

Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo

If your once-flawless blowout looks greasy and limp by day four, Redken’s Pillow Proof Blow Dry To Day Extender Dry Shampoo can help bring your blowout back to life. Extend the life of every blowout. Dry shampoo absorbs oil and freshens up hair for a long lasting look. Genius, right?

Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo, $20.00 MSRP

If you have colored hair:

Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo

If you’re too busy to stay on top of your shampooing schedule, hair can get pretty oily by day three. Pick up Pureology’s Fresh Approach Shampoo to help you get a fresh start. Reduce the color-stripping effects of water abrasion with this color-caring dry shampoo. Non-drying mineral-infused formula with exclusive Anti-Fade Complex gently refreshes hair from roots to scalp with a satin finish.

Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo, $24.00 MSRP

If you have fine hair:

Matrix Style Link Play Back Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo doesn’t just keep your hair looking good, it can also give your ‘do some much needed life. If you’re looking to keep your perfectly unkempt style intact pick up Matrix’s Style Link Play Back Dry Shampoo. Mineral works to absorb oils and impurities, extending and refreshing your undone look longer.

Matrix Style Link Play Back Dry Shampoo, $18.00 MSRP

If you have curly hair:

Shu Uemura’s Color Lustre Dry Cleaner 2-in-1 Dry Shampoo Cleanse and Condition, Zero Residue

If you have curly hair, you’ll want a dry shampoo that keeps your curls looking and feeling nourished. Shu Uemura’s Color Lustre Dry Cleaner 2-in-1 Dry Shampoo Cleanse and Condition is a delicate quick-dry cleanser that purifies roots without drying out lengths.

Color Lustre Dry Cleaner 2-in-1 Dry Shampoo Cleanse and Condition, Zero Residue, $39.00 MSRP

If you have thick hair:

L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo

If you have really thick hair, it may feel like it takes hours to brush the dry shampoo through your hair so that it is no longer visible. Instead of dealing with never-ending arm cramps, pick up a dry shampoo with a nearly invisible formula like L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo. It absorbs excess oil to leave hair feeling clean and extends the life of your blowdry. Virtually invisible formula works for all hair colors, even dark shades.

L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo, $26.00 MSRP
