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.

Feel like I just sprayed perfume on my hair
Sampled

I have oily hair, and typically wash everyday. Occassionally I will try to skip a day of washing, but my hair feels so greasy. This dry shampoo did not work for me. My hair still felt oily, and I didn't care for the perfumed scent.

Best Dry Shampoo EVER
Sampled

This is my #1 favorite BirchBox sample so far. I literally have an entire drawer full of dry shampoo's that have all either just not worked, left my hair sticky and chalky, smelled terrible, or made me look gray. This one was truly PERFECT - it added volume, lift, a great fragrance, and made my hair look like I just left the blow-dry bar!

Great product
Sampled

First off, I love the way it smells. Plus it does the job pretty well. I like to put it on before I go to bed and then I wake up with normal, non-greasy hair!

Works and smells great
SampledPurchased

I received a sample of this months ago in a box. I loved it and everytime I used it my boyfriend would say my hair smelled great (hes not someone who would usually pay attention to those things so it must be great). I used up my sample and I had to buy more. I thought 5.3 oz might be small and I'm pretty cheap so I was not sure if I should order it but I had points so it was free! The bottle is just as big as any hairspray bottle you would get at the drugstore. So happy I ordered it! Works and smells great!

Best Dry Shampoo Ever
SampledPurchased

I got the sample and I as soon as I was able to purchase one (there's always a wait list on this) I did. $21 may seem a lot to some (points, people, points!) but in this case with this brand and this item, totally worth it. The full size is big. The smells is like heaven. Also, you don't need a lot of it and the effect is day long. This was the first product I ever sampled of Amika and it made me love the brand. I've bought their products just because of this dry shampoo. Definitely a staple, classic hair care product.

Best Dry Shampoo I've Used
Sampled

Seriously, this dry shampoo is awesome. I haven't found one as good and am not surprised there is a waiting list to buy it. The smell is amazing and it does a great job absorbing oil without leaving a nasty film like many dry shampoos do. My hair was really soft and smelled great!

May have changed my life!!

I was so disappointed when I got this sample in my box because I have tried a dry shampoo before and didn't notice any difference then before I used it. This has been lying in a drawer for awhile now and the other day my husband wanted to go to lunch after I woke up late and I had no time to wash and dry my hair so I reluctantly tried it and WOW. So I used it for TWO more days after that morning and had fabulous hair both uses! This stuff makes me want to get ready every day because it's taken out a ton of hassle that comes with washing and drying my hair daily. This actually may have improved my quality of life! Thanks so much!
