If you're as busy as we are, you typically don't wash and dry your hair every morning — after all, it can be a long, arduous process full of waiting, heating and styling. Which is why we don't know what we ever did before the invention of dry shampoo. Talk about an absolute game changer.

Typically, dry shampoos come in spray or powder form, and the best dry shampoos not only soak up oil, they clean hair, water-free, and leave you smelling fresh. Plus, for those of you who have the time to wash your hair every day (or just happen to be a little less tolerant of dirt), dry shampoos give your hair a volume boost. At least, that's what the good dry shampoos do. Not all dry shampoos are created equal — and our readers can attest to that. In fact, they've been quite vocal about the best dry shampoos that forever simplify their lives, which ones are just alright and which ones fall flat.

Here are some of the best dry shampoos, as rated by our readers. Read on to find out why each one made the cut.

Best Dry Shampoo No. 11: Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo, $3.89
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 7.1*
Why it's great: One reviewer sums up the pros of this inexpensive dry shampoo, which, at less than $5, is a thrifty girl's dream: It "eliminates oil, reduces grease ... [is] lightweight, adds body, washes out quickly, [is] easy to brush through hair [and] widely available at most drugstores." Sounds like more than enough reasons to name it one the best drugstore dry shampoos.

Although one reviewer reports that the bottle doesn't seem to last very long, many other readers claim that the other dry shampoos they've tried pale in comparison to Dove's cheap dry shampoo. "The others I tried either didn't seem to work or were seriously sticky and could not be brushed out," one user explains. "This does none of that. Everyone should give this a try!"

Best Dry Shampoo No. 8: Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo, $31

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 7.8*

Why it's great: If you've got fine hair, a good dry shampoo is especially important. "I feel like there aren't many dry shampoos that make my fine hair look as clean as this one does," says one user. "It really does absorb oil and get rid of any stringiness." Another fan agrees, adding that she likes the "spa-like Aveda scent." Fair warning, it's not an aerosol which can make application a little trickier, but it's well worth the extra effort.
