As someone with naturally tight 4C coils, I understand dreading wash day. No one would blame you for looking up the best dry shampoo for oily hair in lieu of all that effort. After all, dry shampoo is a must for keeping your hair luscious, but your routine as lazy as possible.

Dry shampoo is often used to control greasy, oily hair days. Not only that, but it can also help you get your hair in check after a workout.

“I recommend powder for thicker and oily hair because it soaks up the oil and won’t weigh [the hair] down,” hairstylist Adriana Tesler tells Allure. Those with finer locks, however, will benefit more from spray or aerosol dry shampoos to dry the hair faster while also giving it volume.

Dry shampoos like the award-winning Amazon Choice Waterless Dry Shampoo is formulated so it doesn’t leave white residue you often see from competitors. But if you want a good powder shampoo, Billie’s got the goods with its Floof Dry Shampoo.
