9 Best Dry Shampoos For Dry Hair

Dry hair doesn't need dry shampoo, right? Not so fast. Daily washing, routine color treatment, heating and styling can suck the moisture out of all hair types. If winter weather, sweater static, and too much shampoo has fried your hair, here's nine dry shampoos for dry hair.

Dry, brittle hair can be caused by a million different factors. Diet and nutrition, hormone changes, and even the weather can do damage to your strands. If you live in elevation, you know the struggle. As a normally oily gal, I am constantly slathering on lotion and leave-in conditioner since moving to the mountains. Even if you don't live a mile high, your skin and hair are probably feeling the effects of winter weather and indoor heating.

Dry hair is a sign of early damage, and can be much harder to work with and keep clean. Dry shampoo can help lengthen the life of your blow out and protect your hair from further damage from over washing and styling. But if your hair is already lacking oils, shopping for a hydrating dry shampoo can be tough.

Look for ingredients like vitamin B12, oils like avocado or almond, and proteins to add silky shine. Shy away from talc and anything with a laundry list of starches that will rob your scalp of natural oils.
