TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 8.3*
Why it's great: "When I wake up with greasy and oily hair, this is my go-to," says one reader of this cult-classic beauty product. Even users with dark hair are fans: "I have ultra-dark hair and dry shampoos always leave white residue. Batiste for dark brown hair is a miracle-worker." Better yet, this dry shampoo doesn't quit after the first few sprays. "As the day goes on, your hair looks even better because the dry shampoo continues to soak up oil," one reader explains.
