Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo - 4oz/12g - $7.99 - apply to roots by section spraying in short quick bursts 6-8" away from the hair - wait one minute then brush out. It has a light, fresh smell and it's not supposed to have any white powder residue but it's probably still a good idea to protect your clothing if you use any dry shampoo while dressed. I didn't see any fallout from my uses and it made my hair feel very light and clean.
Available in Canada exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart, and at drugstores everywhere in the States.

CLEAN Dry Shampoo - 3.175oz/90g - $18 - this one is more like my baby powder solution - but in a narrow tipped bottle so it's much easier to control where the powder goes and the smell is heavenly! Sprinkle it along your root lines and brush out or you can sprinkle it directly on your hair bush and brush it through. Don't wear black when you do it though, it's a little messy! The best news is that the fragrance is time released, so you smell the wonderful scent all day long!
Available at Sephora.com or instore at Toronto Eaton Centre, Vancouver Pacific Centre and West Edmonton.
Klorane Extra Gentle Dry Shampoo with oat milk - 150ml/92.5g - $15.25 - spray in small sections 30cm away from the hair - wait 2 minutes and brush out thoroughly. This one had the least amount of smell of all the ones I tried. The fragrace is very faint. I was impressed with this one for how shiny my hair looked after using it. It looked freshly washed.
Available at participating drugstores including Shoppers Drug Mart.
Available at Sephora.
Overall, I am very impressed at how far dry shampoos have come - they are not the big powdery mess that they used to be at all. If I was the kind of girl who camped, these would be a godsend! But even as a lazy girl that likes to hit the snooze button, they are still going to save my life!
