No chalky roots allowed.

Rule of thumb for color-treated hair: Wash as seldom as possible to preserve the vibrancy of your hair color, and use the best dry shampoo you can find for your hair type to help you forgo a few hair washes.

Oftentimes, women with color-treated hair have the worst dry shampoo experiences. At the top of the list, dry shampoos that leave a white residue have left many women discouraged that they’ll ever find the right formula. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our best dry shampoo picks that can help keep greasy locks at bay, render your color as fresh as ever and leave absolutely no chalky roots behind.

1. Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Dry Shampoo

Need the perfect potion formulated to extend your blowout and the life of your new dye job? Opt for a dry shampoo that can do both. Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Dry Shampoo leaves hair revived and full of body. Pack this bad boy into your gym bag to refresh your hair after a quick lunchtime workout.

2. Dove Refresh + Care Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo

When shopping for a dry shampoo, it’s best to find a formula that doesn’t leave any visible residue on your hair. Who wants to be walking around with red hair and white roots? Not you! Dove Refresh + Care Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo refreshes hair and removes oil without leaving any of the white stuff behind (plus, it smells quite divine).

3. TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo

Truth be told, nothing looks as fresh as newly washed and styled hair, right? But not having the time to shampoo isn’t the case here; you’re just trying to squeeze one more vibrant-colored day out of your hair dye. However, most people can tell when you forgo a hair washing or two (yikes!) so to prevent this from happening to you, use a dry shampoo that helps leave hair looking and feeling weightless (a.k.a. as if you just jumped out of your hairdresser’s chair). Give your oily, limp hair a few spritzes of TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo and no one will ever know you skipped a hair appointment.
