Editors’ Picks: Best Dry Shampoo for Curly Hair

Dry shampoo for curly girls? Yes, we can!

Dry shampoo is probably the only product curly-haired gals might have a hard time understanding the need for. I also had this dilemma but quickly realized why I, too, needed dry shampoo. As we’ve previously explained, dry shampoo soaks up excess oils on the hair and scalp and refreshes things in between hair washing. You’re probably thinking that you don’t have this issue; however, rest assured that using dry shampoo can help you out in numerous ways. Read on to discover when you can shoehorn this product into your routine and how to pick the best dry shampoo for curly hair.

1. Best dry shampoo for color-treated curls

As gorgeous as it looks, hair dye and bleach leave curls extra dry. That’s why slathering your hair with loads of moisturizing products and natural hair oils to penetrate and nourish your hair is key. While your hair feels super hydrated, this can eventually leave your curls looking and feeling limp. Balance is key for a happy curl: Get rid of any excess moisture with a dry shampoo targeted for color-treated hair like Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Dry Shampoo.

2. Best dry shampoo for post-gym curls

What happens after a workout (okay, besides feeling good)? Sweat and oil mixed together, that’s what, and the concoction doesn’t discriminate when it comes to hair textures and hair types. Pack a dry shampoo in your gym bag for a quick cleanse after your workout. Look for a dry shampoo that also helps prevent frizz like Suave Professional Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo, as this formula provides frizz control for over 24 hours.

3. Best dry shampoo for curls with product overload

Not all curly girls choose to rock their hair in a curly hairstyle every day. Your hair texture is versatile: You can straighten it, wear it in a bun, try a braided hairstyle and more. Sometimes you may feel like changing your hairstyle on a daily basis, and this may cause you to alternate between different styling and finishing products such as oils, serums, and hairspray. As a result, your hair starts to feel weighed down and oily from layers upon layers of product.

In between a hair wash and styling, use a weightless formula that will help revive your hair like Dove Refresh + Care Detox Purify Dry ShampooFor updos, opt for prepping hair with Bed Head by TIGI Oh Bee Hive! Dry Shampoo to cleanse excess oils from hair that weigh down your perfect updo look.
