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 good
Sampled

The product smells good but so does the other dry shampoo I currently use that I can buy for 1/3 of the money. I didn't notice much of a difference other then the fragrance.

Outstanding!
Sampled

i absolutely love this product. Not only does it freshen my strands that are easily limp by the end of the day, but it also adds body to my hair when it's clean. Plus it smells way better than any over the counter products that have the same effects but don't hold as long. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the price it outrageously expensive for something that is otherwise extremely cheap.

The Best

I love this product. This is the second time I received it in my box. It is light and does not give you the grey hair appearance. It also smells fantastic. I highly recommend this product.

Best Dry Shampoo ever!
Sampled

I fell in love with amika's Perk Up Dry Shampoo the first time I tried it. I have fine, thin, dark hair that gets oily the second day, but I hate showering every day. This product didn't leave any white residue and smelled amazing!

Dry shampoo

It gave day old hair extra volume but I don't feel like it gave a fresh blow out look.

Great dry Shampoo
Sampled

The dry shampoo serves its purpose and doesn't make my hair feel grainy. It gives it the extra boost that is needed and smells great! It seems to last a long time as well which is the issue I had with other dry shampoos.

Not for dry hair
Sampled

Left a powdery white layer you could visibly see. My hair is normal and at time dry depending on the season therefore did not work well for me. I'm sure it's much better on oily to normal hair. But the packaging is cute

Great, but not for thick hair
Purchased

So I bought this product pretty confidently after reading the reviews + seeing some youtube videos about it. It did not work so well on me, sadly. It is very, very lightweight and I had to use a lot of product before I could see some results. I have black, thick hair and it really doesn't do much to get the oil out.
