Come clean with this plant-based (and planet-friendly!) dry shampoo that’s good for the scalp and strands.

For many of us, working from home has resulted in a lack of motivation — especially when it comes to maintaining a regular hair-washing routine. If your roots are feeling equally apathetic, Act + Acre’s new Plant Based Dry Shampoo is here to give them an instant boost. Made of just six carefully selected ingredients, this clean and effective formula uses rice and tapioca powders to eliminate excess oil and odors. It also features mineral-rich fulvic acid to restore the delicate microbiome and stimulate keratin production for smooth and healthy strands. Even better: This aerosol-free dry shampoo disappears into any hair color for a chalk-free finish.
Whether you need to breathe new life into an at-home blowout or erase any signs that you’ve skipped a wash day (or three), consider this multitasking dry shampoo the beauty equivalent of the “Zoom Shirt,” an essential garment The New York Times describes as the socially acceptable top you pop on right before your next virtual meeting. To quickly whip limp, lifeless strands into video call-ready shape, simply shake the desk drawer-friendly bottle and spray six inches away from hair. After massaging a few puffs of this featherweight formula into greasy roots, brush any remaining product through the ends. Your hair will look so refreshed, you’ll actually want to turn your camera on.

As with every product on VIOLET GREY, the Act + Acre Plant Based Dry Shampoo reached our shelves once a minimum of 70 percent of testers deemed it a winner. At that time, we added them to our hair edit with the Violet Code’s official stamp of approval.
