4 amazing dry shampoos every brunette should know about

Washing your hair every single day just isn’t going to happen. Not only does it strip your mane of necessary oils, but it’s also extremely time-consuming. Thank goodness for dry shampoo, right? For those days when you don’t want to, or maybe can’t, wash your hair, dry shampoo is there to save the day, keeping your hair voluminous and grease-free.

If you’re a brunette, though, watch out. Dry shampoo can leave a white residue, often confused for dandruff, that’s much more visible on darker hair. No need to fear — we’re here to bring a few dry shampoos that will keep your mane clean and residue-free.

Bumble and Bumble Bb. Hair Powder

This handy bottle of magic is made for all hair types, curly or straight, thicker or thinner, and natural or color-treated. This dry shampoo is especially effective at adding volume, ridding excess oil, and providing a little bit of texture. This tinted hair powder also ensures you won’t spend time brushing out the stubborn white residue from your roots.

It’s also good for you (and the environment) because it’s free of phthalates, parabens, oils, and formaldehyde. Plus, a little goes a long way, so you won’t have to worry about stocking up constantly. At $36, you definitely get enough bang for your buck.

Why we like it:

  • Made for all hair types
  • Effective at adding volume and providing texture
  • Good for the environment

Batiste Divine Dark Dry Shampoo

Batiste has an entire line dedicated to every hair color. This company developed these products keeping in mind how dry shampoo dries differently on different hair colors, lengths, and textures. This line includes two different shades for brunettes, so you can ensure the shampoo matches your shade exactly. We trust this spray to make our bedhead look runway-ready in no time.

This product is also vegan-friendly, and you won’t find sulfates, aluminum, parabens, or silicone on the ingredient list. At only $13, you can get salon-quality hair without the salon-quality price.

Why we like it:

  • Features two different shades for brunettes
  • Vegan-friendly
  • Free of sulfates, aluminum, parabens and silicone

Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark Tint

Curly, coiled, or straight, this dry shampoo will take care of odor, dirt, and other buildups to keep your hair fresh, even after days without a wash. The inclusion of Argan oil means this product moisturizes as it cleans, so you don’t have to worry about dehydration.

We’re keeping this mini size in our bags for that much-needed midday touch-up. At only $12, why not grab a few?

Why we like it:

  • Made for all hair types
  • Features Argan oil to moisturize your hair
  • Comes in a mini-size so you can take it on the go

Tresemme Medium to Dark Tones Brunette Clean Dry Shampoo

Tresemme is one of the most well-known and well-trusted brands in the beauty industry. Its dry shampoo for dark hair won’t leave that white residue and can keep your hair smelling amazing all day long with a light, floral scent that rivals the aroma of a full wash.

After it dries, you can style your hair as needed, and we recommend doing so with other Tresemme products. At $5.99 a bottle, we think this is going to be our new best friend.

Why we like it:

  • Offers a light floral scent
  • Paraben and dye-free
  • Inexpensive

Hygiene is (very) important, but it doesn’t hurt to skip a shampoo every now and then. You won’t have to worry about dull, flat hair or white residue with these dry shampoos.
