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.

Absolutely obsessed with this dry shampoo. It absorbs oil without making hair look dry. Smells fantastic! Will continue to buy over and over.

Refreshing Dry Shampoo
Purchased

I really like this dry shampoo - it's much better than all the other dry shampoos I've tried. This one has a light refreshing scent and really helps to absorb oil and give volume. It doesn't leave that tacky feeling in your hair when you use it, like the others do. I like to be able to still run my fingers through my hair without feeling that tackiness. I can do that now and my hair feels light and clean. Definitely one of the best dry shampoos out there.

Great dry shampoo

Amazing product! This was my first time using a dry shampoo and it's great! The scent is pleasant and does not overwhelm. It does a great job on covering up either hair that is one day past washing or refreshing day old hair.

Great!

This product smells really good and it also works just as well. This product is good for use on a morning you slept in or just simply are short on time.

Perfect Dry Shampoo
Purchased

I have a hard time finding dry shampoos because my hair is so dark and I do not want it to look gray like some do. When I ordered this product and tried it, I quickly realized that it is the best dry shampoo I have ever used. It does not make my hair look gray and it gets rid of all the oil and makes it look like I just washed it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good dry shampoo, definitely a good buy!

Good but not best
Purchased

I like this product but I feel like I have to use a lot to get the results I normally get from a dry shampoo. It is very low residue though so even using a lot doesn't show. It has a lighter smell than some of the other baby powder smelling products as well.

Smells great, works well

I've tried dry shampoos in the past, but none have really worked for me. I got this one in my sample box and loved it--and it smells great too.

Not the hardest working dry shampoo I've tried and certainly not the most affordable. Not bad, but for your money you can do better.
