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.

Smells amazing!
Sampled

This is honestly the best smelling dry shampoo I have ever used! My husband asked me what the new perfume was I was wearing...nope! my new dry shampoo!

On another note, I have very oily hair...and this did not last very long with absorbing the oil. :-/

smells delicious & works perfectly
Sampled

I can smell this every time I turn my head during the day, which I love because it smells so great! It also works like a charm, leaves my hair feely silky, not grimey or built-up like when I use other dry shampoos.

Great scent!
Sampled

I loved the smell and it really perked my hair up. The only negative about this product is that it runs out very quickly.

Wow ! Works Great !
Sampled

My hot water heater broke and I was forced to use this and was so happy with the results ! I wished I tried dry shampoo sooner . My bangs tend to look dirty by the end of the day and this works just perfect for that. A little goes a long way I did spray to close and to much once and did get some residue but it brushed out.

Best Dry Shampoo Ever
Purchased

It seriously smells like juicy couture perfume. It works so well and doesn't make my hair look greasy or chalky.

Fabulous Dry Shampoo!
Sampled

I received this sample in my box and loved it! Some dry shampoos don't smell great but this one was fabulous. I was sad to see that it was out of stock when I tried to order the full size....a testament to how good it is I suppose!

Good smell, minimal residue, effective
Purchased

I was as skeptical as anyone about dry shampoo actually working, but it has been a wonderful discovery for my lazy morning self who routinely sleeps in too late to shower. This has been my favorite so far - has a pleasant smell that is not too strong, and does not leave much powdery white residue (though this may not be true for someone with dark hair). Overall, I'd definitely recommend.
