Whoever invented dry shampoo deserves some sort of reward: a medal, a cookie… something that shows the immense gratitude us girls have for this product.
Without dry shampoo, we would all be hustling to work with obvious oily gym hair, dull curls, and essentially no volume. However, while we bless the Hair Gods for this masterpiece, there is one minor flaw than even the best dry shampoo can’t ignore.
Brunettes, you know what we mean. While we all love being able to roll out of bed in the morning without having to take yet another shower, the chalky cast off from dry shampoo is something that is left to be desired. And while even blondes can speak to the ever-present residue that comes with dry shampoo, brunettes take the brunt of this unfortunate side effect. Fortunately for you, there are several dry shampoos on the market that address this concern.
So we have for you— the best dry shampoos for brunettes!
Bastiste is a general go-to if you are looking for the best dry shampoo on the market. It’s cheap and can be found at your local Target for under $10. This brand comes in three different shades, including Divine Dark for the richest brown hair colors.
It’s ingredients of lightweight, finely milled rice starch is used to absorb oil, making it a seamless dry shampoo for brunettes. No leftover residue on your roots; only texturized and voluptuous hair that you can go weeks without washing (okay, maybe don’t go weeks without washing).
Got2b is famous for its long line of versatile hair care products, but now that it has dry shampoo for brunettes, their stance has risen drastically by our standards. Their Fresh It Up brand of dry shampoo now comes in dark brown. The darker finish ensures that no powdery residue can be seen on brown roots. It can even act as a temporary root touch-up while riding your hairs of oily appearances. And did we mention that it smells like chocolate? That’s right— chocolate.
Moroccanoil should be considered one of the best dry shampoo products simply for its creamsicle-like scent (seriously, the smell is incredible). But we like that their dry shampoo in Dark Tone is made specifically for our dark-haired babes. It’s a dry shampoo for brunettes that highlights pigments in your brown hair to make it look vibrant and texturized all at once. It contains argan oil, making it extremely rich in tocopherols (Vitamin E), essential fatty acids, and contains antioxidants. The natural oils help to refresh battered hair follicles and the added starch helps to draw out any excess oils. It takes away that dull residue and maintains dark, brunette tones.
