Dry shampoo is the ultimate beauty hack and we’re always stocking up. But stocking up on a favorite product can be difficult when we don’t actually have a favorite brand. We don’t want to buy 10 cans of something that’s going to end up leaving us feeling sticky, stiff and weighed down. When we use a product this often, though, we need to find a go-to as soon as possible, because we’re constantly running out!
Our new go-to is 100% going to be amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo. Luckily for Us, former Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and fiancé Jordan Rodgers recently took us on a tour of their newly renovated home (via YouTube). We loved their interior design choices, staring in awe at gorgeous quartz countertops and an accent television stand, but we had to pause the video once we got to the bathroom. Call us nosy, but we wanted to know all of Fletcher’s beauty secrets, so we may have zoomed in just a bit on her bathroom closet, and that’s where we saw all of her amika products stashed up Marie Kondo-style in a crate labeled “Hair!”
So, now we know how Fletcher keeps her luscious waves looking forever smooth and shiny, but she’s certainly not the only fan of the product. Shoppers can’t get enough, saying it’s better than any other brand they’ve tried, specifically naming Dove, Batiste, OGX, Not Your Mother’s, Hask, Wella, Pssst, Bumble and Bumble and more! While other brands weigh hair down, amika perks it up. One shopper said it “keeps [their] hair fresh for days,” while another commented on the smell, calling it “wonderful and light” as opposed to overloaded with a chemical stench like other dry shampoos. We have to say we especially loved one comment calling it “idiot-proof.” We’re not hairstylists, so the easier a product is to use, the better!
This amika dry shampoo claims to “keep our hair looking fresh between washings,” but how? It contains a rice starch powder, which may absorb all of our excess oil, all the while building volume and enhancing texture. It also contains an amika-favorite super-fruit ingredient, sea buckthorn berry! Sea buckthorn berry has high concentrations of vitamins C, A and E, as well as omega-7, which may help to fend off free radicals, which damage our hair, all the while promoting collagen production! Collagen is key for our hair’s health. (It’s great for skin and nails, too!)
The best part of all of this is we can achieve photo shoot-worthy hair all without a shower or any assistance of damaging styling tools like hair dryers, curling irons and straighteners. It’s a total time-saver, which means we can easily press snooze a couple of extra times in the morning!
The potential benefits don’t end there. Along with keeping our hair fresh, this dry shampoo also may have our scalp singing its praises, refreshing it and cooling it off. On top of that? It also may act as a deodorizer for our hair! If we’re spending a while in a small burger joint or sitting in front of a fireplace, our hair is going to grasp onto those greasy and burning smells. Just give it a spray and that’s all taken care of!
To use this dry shampoo, we start off by shaking it up. We then hold the can about eight inches away from our hair and get to spraying. Be sure to spray with a focus on the roots! Then massage the product in, as we would in the shower, finishing it off with a light brush-through. This dry shampoo claims to leave zero white residue, so we can go about the rest of our day as normal without checking the mirror for faux dandruff every 10 minutes.
We know that we always have to be extra careful when trying out new products if our hair has been treated. Not to worry, though, because this dry shampoo claims to be completely safe for color-treated, Brazilian-treated and Keratin-treated hair! It doesn’t contain any aluminum or talc, and it’s sulfate and paraben-free! An extra bonus? It’s cruelty-free, too, as all of amika’s products are and have always been!
The brand has been fighting against “unattainable perfection” for over 10 years now with its inclusive, easy-to-use, award-winning products. With this amika dry shampoo, we can maintain that “just-left-the-salon look” for days without even leaving our house. Now, if only we lived in Fletcher and Rodger’s house!
