Today, women are often too busy to wash their hair every day, but who wants to walk around with greasy locks?! In the past, girls who didn’t have the time- or energy- to wash their hair really only had the option to dump some baby powder on their roots. And try as they might, often it meant walking around with a cloudy head of hair.
But today, women have choices and regularly turn to dry shampoo instead. Just a few spray a spritz or two on your roots, tousle with your fingers, and you’re good to go for a few more hours (or maybe even days!)
Now, how to choose from the seemingly endless number of choices? We’ve rounded up our five favorite dry shampoo brands that are available to shoppers in Sweden.
Living Proof is one of the best brands in hair care because of their science-first approach. Since their 2005 founding, Living Proof has won over 150 awards including Allure Magazine’s “Best of Beauty” Award, along with awards from Shape magazine, Real Simple, Women’s Health, Cosmopolitan, InStyle, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, and People en Espanol. Talk about impressive.
But what’s more impressive is how pure their ingredients are- no silicone, no parabens, no sulfates, no phthalates. Not ever. And even though they have 45 ingenious products, we like their dry shampoos best. Not only will their Perfect Hair Day dry shampoos absorb excess oil, dirt, and sweat, it’ll do it without harmful chemicals, so you can have a beautiful hair day inside and out.
We’d all love a hair care routine to be customized to our specific hair and lifestyle type, but most of us don’t have the deep pockets traditional bespoke hair care has required. But Swedish women can now get premium hair care at an affordable price with Briogeo.
While we love all of the leave in masks, volumizing root powders, hair masks for dry damaged hair, and micro-exfoliating shampoos, it’s Briogeo’s two dry shampoos that we’re fawning over.
The 4.5 star user reviewed Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin dry shampoo is ideal for those with oily hair and build up, as it cleanses and detoxifies the scalp to extend the life of your blowout. This spray works for strait, wavy, and curly hair by drawing impurities from the scalp to normalize oil production to provide a long term solution to oily hair.
If you crave the perfect, voluptuous supermodel hair from home, Oribe is for you. The brand’s founders wanted to create a product line that would impress even the most discerning stylist and cause consumer jaws to drop, and they certainly didn’t disappoint.
While the Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo smells amazing and weightlessly absorbs excess scalp oils to restore locks, the real showstopper of the Oribe collection is their bestselling Dry Texturizing Spray. This product effectively doubles as a texturizer and a dry shampoo, and we do love any product that can pull double duty!
Since its launch in 2010, the Dry Texturizing Spray has had an almost immediate cult following, thanks to its ability to simultaneously absorb excess oil while creating all day volume and a sexy, playful texture. Stylists have even called it a “top 3, can’t live without” product.
Bumble and Bumble
As a brand that’s spent over 40 years pushing the boundaries at shoots, shows, and on set, Bumble and Bumble has never stopped innovating. After real stylists couldn’t find the caliber of products they needed to stand up to their clients’ rigorous demands, they created their own.
Whether they’re creating products to bring edgy cuts to life or protecting hair from harmful UV rays, Bumble and Bumble hasn’t stopped innovating. And we think the greatest innovations are their six different dry shampoos.
Their top-selling Prêt-à-powder instantly creates volume and texture to refresh style- just add a bit of powder to your hair brush, work through from root to tip, and you’re good to go.
Under the Prêt-à-powder line, fans also love the post workout mist, the invisible dry shampoo (often called “the best dry shampoo, period”), and the nourishing dry shampoo, made for women with dry hair (but greasy hair).
But perhaps the most interesting Bumble and Bumble dry shampoos are their Brownish Hair Powder and their Blondish Hair Powder. These sprays are exactly what they sound like- dry shampoos with a bit of tint, to better blend in to roots. Because who wants grayish hair anyway?
In Europe and around the world, Klorane is a cult-favorite dry shampoo brand for good reason- it’s natural, and it WORKS. Since the late 1970s, French-based Klorane has been formulated with plant-based ingredients to bring natural hair care to the masses. And this emphasis on purity has put Klorane at the top of the hair care brand pyramid in Europe.
Klorane’s revolutionary dry shampoos use a variety of natural ingredients to remove sweat and build up, without hurting the scalp. Nettle is an ideal ingredient to remove impurities while regulating sebum production in those with oily hair, while oat milk effectively soothes and protects hair and the scalp for those with normal or dry hair. Leaving the gym? Spritz a Klorane dry shampoo with aquatic mint on your locks to scientifically help detoxify and purify hair.
And Klorane dry shampoo is affordable for shoppers in Sweden, with bottles starting at just about €8.60.
