Beauty Obsession: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

Check out the hottest beauty products that our editors can't live without!

Dry shampoo is a godsend for extending the life of a blowout or adding volume to a style that's gone flat. If you're like me, and you've got color-treated hair, then it's especially important for shampooing less frequently (lest I strip those gorgeous highlights I just paid for). But formulas I've tried in the past either left a telltale powdery residue on my brunette locks or weighed them down completely.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo is a game-changer in the beauty industry — instead of just masking greasiness, it removes oil, sweat, and odor using proprietary triple-action technology. Not only does it leave hair looking and feeling clean, but it's also easy to layer on top of other products, and it works well for any hair color or texture. The fragrance is subtle and fresh so that no one will be the wiser. How it works: Shake the can and hold it arms-length away from your head. Lift up one section of hair at a time and spray, concentrating on the roots. Wait a few minutes for the product to absorb and then gently shake your mane or brush it throughout. Available at Sephora, Ulta, and ($22 for a full-sized bottle and $12 for a travel-size).
