So just what is dry shampoo you ask? Dry shampoo is any type of shampoo that you do not have to rinse out. Dry shampoo can be either home made — made from a variety of foods such as oatmeal or cornstarch, or store bought. Unfortunately, most drugstores and beauty supply houses only stock one (max. two) brands. Needless to say, dry shampoo isn’t a popular choice for the masses, but it seems to b popular for many vegans, vegetarians, and other individuals looking for cruelty-free hair care items or an alternative to chemical shampoos.
Dry shampoos are not just popular among the vegan and vegetarian set. Dry shampoos are used in hospitals for the sick or injured that cannot get out of bed. It is also popular for extended camping trips and emergency situations, such as plumbing problems. Many people also use dry shampoos to cut down on hair fatigue. Dry shampoo can help give your hair a break from heavy products, curling irons, flat irons, blow dryers, and the tugging and pulling that goes along with it.
Although a number of top hair care product manufactures sell dry shampoos, as stated earlier, their products are still difficult to find. Best bet – shop online. Some of the top dry (and cruelty free) shampoos include:
Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo
Samy Dry Shampoo Spray
Ojon Dry Shampoo Rub Out Cleanser

Just a few key ingredients in some dry shampoos include: Natural Rice, Oat Starches and Tapioca Starches, Tea Tree Oil, Oat Extract, and Lemon Verbena.
