I don't know about you, but I don't need to be told twice not to wash my hair every day.

Skipping the step for a day (or, if you're like me, four) can be a huge timesaver. Plus, hairstylists tend to agree that spacing out washes can be beneficial for your locks, since lathering up too often may cause an imbalance in your natural oils, make color-treated hair fade and even lead to scalp irritation.

That being said, no matter how long you leave between washes, there usually comes a point where your hair needs a refresh. That's when dry shampoo comes in handy.

Whether you want to stretch a blowout for a few more days, get rid of grease or want to quickly spruce up after a sweaty workout, there are plenty of formulas that deliver. Below, we rounded up several bestselling options that will become your new BFF between washes. From stylist-loved sprays to an aerosol-free pick, these are the best dry shampoos that you (and your hair) will love.

Best dry shampoos to use between washes, according to shoppers

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

This dry shampoo — with over 9,000 verified five-star ratings on Amazon — boasts the ability to work for all hair types without leaving behind visible residue. If you're constantly figuring out how to deal with an oily scalp, one verified five-star reviewer has a tip: "Put your dry shampoo in before you go to bed. It'll get a chance to absorb the oils longer and won't leave any residue behind. I do that nightly and my hair can last up to 5 days without a wash!"

amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo

Vegan, sulfate-free and aluminum-free, this dry shampoo is formulated to absorb excess oil, buildup and odor to leave your hair feeling refreshed and looking ready for the runway with just a few spritzes.

Acure Dry Shampoo

Steering clear of aerosols? This dry shampoo comes in powder form, so you can squeeze out the formula directly onto your hair, work it through and then brush it out. "I love dry shampoo in powder form - works so much better than any spray," wrote one verified reviewer. "For years I've bought more expensive brands (at around $45 a pop) but this is both affordable and works JUST as well. Love it."

Aveeno Fresh Greens Blend Dry Shampoo

The addition of oats, rosemary, peppermint and cucumber will leave your hair smelling good enough to eat (but don't actually do that). According to the brand, it's safe for color-treated hair and shoppers love that it's an affordable option that gets the job done.

Eva NYC Freshen Up Invisible Dry Shampoo

With star ingredients like rice starch, argan oil and vitamin C, this dry shampoo is meant to lift and liven up your hair. It even comes in fully recyclable packaging so when it's done doing good for you, it can also do good for the earth.

R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo

According to the brand, this is one of their bestsellers and "the quickest way to get volume and body." It features key ingredients like rice protein, vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5.

Batiste Dry Shampoo

This bestselling dry shampoo may have been a 2020 People and TODAY Beauty Awards winner, but its impact has truly been long-lasting. The waterless formula absorbs dirt and grease and leaves behind a subtle lavender scent. It's also great for those with thin hair, as it helps to break up strands and add texture.

Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Finishing Spray

While it's labeled as a texture spray, this option from Drybar also removes oil and functions as a light dry shampoo. While it will help you refresh your locks after a tough workout or stretch a style for another day (or three), it also provides instant volume and texture.

OGX Extra Strength Refresh & Restore + Dry Shampoo

This popular dry shampoo from OGX refreshes second-day strands, there's no question about that. But one of the biggest draws, according to some reviewers, is the smell. "The scent lasts and leaves my hair smelling good all day," wrote one verified reviewer. You won't be able to get enough of coconut-based formula, which will leave you smelling like vanilla and coconut after a few sprays.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

Another expert-approved option, this Klorane dry shampoo is formulated with oat milk to soothe the scalp while cleansing. It easily blends into your hair and won't leave behind a chalky residue. Plus, according to the brand, one of their dry shampoos sells every nine seconds worldwide.

Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Volumizing Spray

One Shop TODAY writer (and longtime beauty editor) said this spray is the one that she turns to time and time again. Created by New York stylist and salon owner Oscar Blandi, the formula cleans hair, removes buildup and boosts volume, without impacting your color or leaving behind visible traces.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

Safe for chemically-treated and dyed hair, Living Proof's popular dry shampoo is fast-absorbing, to get rid of grease and sweat in no time. "I absolutely ADORE this brand," wrote one verified reviewer. "I have very thick, wavy, long hair and this works wonders at keeping my style, blow out, etc. in peak looking and feeling condition!"

Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo, Light Tones

Not only does this formula refresh hair between washes, but it will protect your strands from UV damage. This one is created for blonde, platinum and silver hair, but they also have an option that works well for darker hair colors.

Colab Original Dry Shampoo

This brand's dry shampoos have been making waves in the U.K., and it's easy to see why — their formulas are affordable and effective. They have plenty of fun scents to choose from, like Unicorn and Paradise. The brand also has an overnight dry shampoo that will clean and detox your hair as you sleep.
