The Invisible Dry Shampoo That Saved My Strands

As someone who suffers from oily roots, I count dry shampoo as a dear friend. However, although I’ve tried an arsenal of formulas, I have yet to find a product that’s BFF-worthy (this one leaves a chalky residue, that one smells)…until now.

Alterna’s Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo in Bamboo Leaf ($22) stole my heart at first spritz. First of all, it’s completely invisible–meaning no risk of powdery white residue or clumpy strands. Second, the scent is fresh and light—it actually makes your hair smell freshly washed instead of overly-perfumed. And finally, it actually works. The organic formula absorbed oil and left my locks bouncy, clean, and voluminous—and for that, I am forever grateful.
