What It Is

A dry shampoo in paste form

What It Does

Lifts roots, creates messy texture, and prolongs a blowout

KEY INGREDIENTS:

Zeolite (absorbs oil); coconut and argan oils (moisturize)

HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS/SMELLS:

The pale-gray paste looks like wet sand, feels tacky (like hair wax), and has a clean, claylike smell.

WHY WE LIKE IT:

Dry-shampoo sprays can be sticky and loose powders not sticky enough (just ask anyone who's ever used one while wearing black). Rub this paste between your fingertips and massage it into the roots and midlength—what starts as a cream melts into an oil and then dries to a powder, lifting the hair and creating a slightly rough texture (with no mess). It kept our testers' blowouts fresh and bouncy for two extra days. And they loved that they could place it precisely at the roots, so the rest of their hair stayed shiny.

PRICE*: $28
