Organic Dry Shampoos
So You Can Say Goodbye To Oil And Hello To Fresh Hair

Many of us take great pride in caring for our hair—and sometimes we care just a little too much. Over-washing strips our hair of its natural oils, and in turn causes extra oiliness and irritation. But thank goodness for dry shampoo. With it, we can opt to wash less and spray more for hair that feels just as clean, but without the hassle.

Rather than using aerosol bottles or dangerous chemicals, you can find natural dry shampoos that have organic ingredients, are cruelty-free, and abide by eco-friendly standards. We’ve found seven brands that are giving our hair new life. It’s time to simply sprinkle a little on your roots and take on the day.
