Of all the dry shampoos I've used in the past, Amika's "Perk Up" wins in a very important way: it leaves the least amount of residue, which actually is saying a lot because I have black hair. I normally spray on dry shampoo before going to bed, but I once applied Amika's 10 minutes before I had to go to work and my hair looked fine. Actually, it looked better than fine — it looked pretty darn great. The bottle says it contains Obliphica extract, which is supposed to moisturize and strengthen hair and explains why my hair felt soft after I applied it. (I definitely can't say the same about other dry shampoos I've used in the past.) I also love the smell, too, which isn't overpowering in that nauseating way.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo, $22, available at Sephora.
