After styling, use amika™’s travel-friendly 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 amikaTM’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, amikaTM’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. Toss it in your makeup or gym bag for whenever your strands need a refresh.

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.

This dry shampoo is fantastic. It has a great smell and gets the job done! The sample size is perfect to stick in your purse for the summer when hair tends to get greasier, quicker.

Great Smelling Dry Shampoo
Purchased

I am obsessed with dry shampoo, and definitely loved this one. It is great for traveling, it smells so good, and it is certainly an effective product. I have an oily scalp especially after one day washes, and this dry shampoo gave my hair an excellent look the next day.

Smells good and works great!

Finally a dry shampoo that smells good and works great! I've used this to get away with not washing my hair another day or to create volume and it has become a make-up bag must have. For home and away!

Ok, not great.

This product is definitely better than a store brand that cakes up and leaves a not-ideal residue; however, it also lacked some power behind it that I wanted. I think it could have more of an effect because of its upstanding brand and successful sister products.

So-so dry shampoo
Purchased

This product was just ok for me. The sprayer doesn't work super well and the spray comes out a little heavy. Like it's a little too dense or something. I don't think I will order this again.

This didn't leave my hair feeling gunky.

Really was pleased with how this left my hair feeling. I am not sure it really took all the oil look out of my hair though.

Nice Dry Shampoo

I own the full size of this and like to use it for added texture to my stick straight hair before curling. Smells great. Not necessarily good for adding volume. Doesn't leave a ton of residue like other brands.

Love but packaging is flimsy
Purchased

So I bought this to test out the effectiveness before buying the larger version. After about 3-4 uses (light uses) the spray nozzle broke and wouldn't dispense any product. I shook the can and it was still almost completely full. Couldn't get the cap fixed so I had to throw it out :( But the smell was nice and didn't smell like alcohol. I loved what I had used so far and ended up buying the bigger version anyways.

Smells amazing!
Purchased

Love this dry shampoo, it's the only dry shampoo that I've tried which actually has a pleasant smell. My hair felt clean and soft rather than other dry shampoos that just put a powdery mask over it. It was quite a small bottle and I had to push down really hard to spray.

Awesome travel size! Keep this at my desk at work for days when I don't wash my hair. Great dry shampoo that makes my hair feel less oily.
