List Rules Any shampoo that is not meant to be rinsed out with water

The best dry shampoos allow you to go several days between washes if that's your thing. In recent years, a slew of new dry shampoos have hit the market, each promising to help clean hair without the suds. Which one is the greatest? This list includes some of the most popular dry shampoos, so cast your votes for the ones you like the most. If you have a favorite dry shampoo that isn't listed, please do add it.

Dry shampoos can be a lifesaver if you're short on time. Just spritz on some dry shampoo and voila! Gorgeous tresses, instantly! There are a few things to keep in mind where dry shampooing is concerned: There are really two different kinds of dry shampoos: powders and sprays.

Powder dry shampoos are designed to zap grease at the roots, and they are especially helpful for those with fine hair. Applying a little powder dry shampoo can actually help to increase volume and give fine, flat hair a bit more texture. If your hair is on the thicker side, a spray dry shampoo might be the best way to go. The aerosol dry shampoos tend to have a bit less residue, so they won't boost already thick hair even more - but they will freshen locks dramatically.

Here's a tip: If you're in a bind and you don't have any dry shampoo on hand, you can use good old Johnson's Baby Powder -- just be careful not to over apply it.

If you're trying to decide which dry shampoo is the best for you, see if your favorite salon shampoo brand offers one first. Also, keep in mind that some dry shampoos can leave a buildup on your hair, so when you are ready to wash, you might be well served by using a clarifying shampoo to get all that gunk out. If you're concerned about traditional shampooing stripping your hair's color, you might try one of these sulfate-free shampoos.
