The Best Dry Hair Shampoo For Your Hair Type and Texture

dry shampoo for every hair type

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! Lucky for us, there’s a way to refresh our dark brown 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 the best dry shampoo for your hair type and texture, we’ve got you covered. We’ve rounded up seven dry shampoos from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands we’re currently obsessing over.
