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.

Refreshing dry shampoo- easy to brush and smells nice and clean. Hair looks non-greasy and does not knot. Leave hair soft and smooth.

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

amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
Purchased

I am disappointed with this product. While the smell is nice, I have used many dry shampoos in the $4-6 range that are more effective than this one. Definitely will not purchase again.

Works well on black hair
Purchased

I have very dark, practically black hair and there is no residue left behind after a quick brushing. I use it on my bangs when I have second (or older) day hair. This dry shampoo cleans them up and makes them look good.

No Residue, Great Scent
Sampled

As a brunette, I've had trouble finding dry shampoos that don't leave a noticeable white residue. This one is great for that and smells amazing. It's can really bring your hair back to life after a long day, so spray a little before going out after work to perk up your strands.
