This post lists the best dry shampoos that have been rated by customers on Amazon and Sephora. In the first portion, the dry shampoos were rated with at least a 4.5 out of 5. And the second portion consists of those with at least a 4 out of 5. We all know that reviews are subjective. Therefore I have chosen the products with at least 50 reviews to get a more reliable feel on the ratings. Most of them have received hundreds of comments.
Note that sometimes products get minus points not because they do not clean well, but because of factors such as price, delivery system, smell etc.
