After styling, use amika’s Obliphica Touchable Hairspray to help keep strands in place, frizz-free, and hydrated.

Birchbox Breakdown

We usually reach for coffee when our sleep-deprived brains need a little energy boost— when we need to revive our tired tresses, we make a beeline for amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo. The weightless spray absorbs excess oil and dirt, leaving locks clean and deodorized as well as lighter and softer. Plus, it can be used on color-treated hair.

How it Works

The lightweight formula contains sweet-smelling obliphica (sea buckthorn berry) oil, which features a laundry list of powerful ingredients: antioxidants, vitamins, healthy fatty acids, omegas 3, 6, and 9, and omega 7 (generally found only in fish oil). Together, they moisturize and strengthen hair, repair split ends, enhance shine, and restore hair’s natural balance. Moreover, unlike many other dry shampoos, which contain aluminum shavings, amika’s version includes natural rice starch instead. It’s even talc-free.

How to Use

Shake can vigorously. Hold 10-12 inches away from scalp and spray gently, concentrating on roots. Massage through hair with fingertips, and style as desired.

Butane, propane, sd alcohol 40-b, oryza sativa (rice) starch, disteardimonium hectorite, fragrance (parfum), cyclopentasiloxane, hippophaea rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) seed oil, water (aqua), lilial, limonene, hydroxycitronellal, lyral, citronellol, coumarin.

Magic!
Purchased

This stuff is magic! I have oily and fine hair that lays flat after only one day. This dry shampoo lets me wash less frequently and it gives body, volume, and texture to my hair. Great product.

I have used other dry shampoos in the past and this is my favorite. It's great because it can be used on color-treated hair and it really makes hair feel clean and smell fresh!! I just ordered one!

Smells great!

I first received this dry shampoo as part of a promo when the brand was in its early launch stage. I have loved it everytime. The smell is great and it's spray really covers a lot of hair making it easier to freshen up!

Its okay

I am on the fence with this product because I wonder does it really clean your hair. I will say it has a nice scent and applys easy. Its gives nice body however the sample was not enough for all my hair. I dont think I would repurchase this item because dry shanpoos are just not my thing.

Best Dry Shampoo Around
Purchased

I have used high-end, low-end, spray and powder dry shampoo and this one is by far the best. I have dark brown hair and this dry shampoo does not leave a white residue like many do. It also sprays easily and the smell is really light and refreshing. I can go up to 4 days without shampooing while using this dry shampoo. It is by far my favorite and I will continue to use.

works just ok

I have tried this a few times now. Not a big fan, I can see it working great if you are camping but my hair was only slightly better after use
