Shampoo shouldn’t be controversial. But ask any group of guys how often they wash their hair and you’ll get a mixed bag of answers, each dude claiming more vociferously than the last to have discovered the only grooming hack that matters. The real truth? They’re all full of shit. There is no one right answer. The only thing we can all agree on is that you’re probably shampooing way too often.
Conventional wisdom holds that you should wash your hair no more than two or three times a week, giving your mane plenty of time to recuperate in between. Having a hard time wrapping your head around the idea of going entirely without shampoo for a few days straight? Try a dry shampoo, the spray or powder alternative specifically designed to extend your hair’s life in between washes with minimal effort. If your hair tends to be on the oilier side, the right dry shampoo can be a game-changer, targeting excess oil while adding volume (and a little texture) on the days you opt to skip a wash. A good dry shampoo will rid your hair of grease and other grime without stripping it entirely of the natural oils that keep it looking healthy.
And chances are, these days your hair desperately needs the extra love. (FYI: When applying, don’t forget to pay special attention to your roots. Evenly distributing the product throughout your hair—and in particular, the area around your scalp—is the best way to avoid leaving your locks with any lingering residue.) To help you steer clear of the cacophony of “expert” grooming advice readily available in comment sections across the web, we rounded up the best dry shampoos on the market right now so you can test ’em out and then see for yourself. Have at it.

Super Dry Shampoo
Super might sound a bit hyperbolic, but Ouai’s highly absorbent shampoo is designed to help revive even the deadest ‘dos, adding a healthy dose of volume to every hair type.
The appeal of Verb’s powdered shampoo lies, in part, with the sheer maneuverability of the bottle it comes in. If your hair tends to get oily only in very specific areas (around, say, the nape of your neck or the end of your part), the tip on this tube makes it a cinch to spot treat as necessary.
Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo
Bri0geo’s dry shampoo uses a powerful blend of Binchotan charcoal and biotin (trust me!) to absorb oil build-up in between washes.
Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo
When Living Proof dubbed its specialty line of grooming products “Perfect Hair Day,” the brand wasn’t trying to brag. Its spray-on dry shampoo really is that good, soaking up sweat and other unseemly oils using the brand’s signature triple-action cleaning technology.
Using 100 percent natural ingredients like sea clay, shavegrass powder, and rice powder—tasty!—this absorbent powder will keep excess oil in check while nourishing hair with eucalyptus and lime essential oils.
Premium Hair Styling Dry Shampoo
Hanz de Fuko’s styling shampoo works to refresh your hair and remove any lingering product residue, all while lightly moisturizing your mane in the process.
Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste
The easiest way to add some much-needed hold (without, y’know, washing) to hair that won’t stop looking like you slept on it funny, no matter what you do? Rub a small amount of R+Co’s dry shampoo between your fingertips and apply it evenly throughout.
Dry Powder Shampoo
Sachajuan’s dry shampoo is specifically designed to hit hair that’s looking a tad limp with a jolt of serious volume, helping you keep your meticulously maintained ‘do looking that way just a liiitle bit longer.
Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
When it comes to dry shampoos, Oribe is tough to beat. The brand’s trademark “Gold Lust” option is bound to be on any list you come across discussing the product, and for good reason. Though it’s a bit (read: substantially) pricier than some of its counterparts, if it’s a premium, scalp-soothing product you want, it’s a premium scalp-soothing product you’re going to get.
