I’m not going to lie to you all: I find washing my hair to be extremely taxing. For me, it’s not just the act of washing my hair—it’s the acts of having to blow-dry, round brush, and curl it to get it looking the way it did pre-shower. All I think about during that whole process is all the other tasks I could be doing instead. Seriously—think about how much more time you would have if you didn’t need to spend an hour doing that every day.
Given that I don’t enjoy washing my hair but also need to look put together every day for work and general socializing, I’ve really honed in on my dry shampoo skills. Dry shampoo is a miracle worker, and if you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it. One or two quick sprays and a little tousling of the hair and your oily roots are gone. The only problem I have with certain dry shampoos is that they tend to leave a white film at the roots of my blonde hair (or can make my roots look a bit darker if they’re tinted).
After much trial and error, I’ve found the holy grail of dry shampoos for light hair that I’m here to share with you today. Below, I’m highlighting the 21 best shampoos for blonde hair that will save you during a time crunch.
