Cruelty-Free Dry Shampoo and Conditioner

Cruelty-Free Dry Shampoo and Conditioner

I don’t know about you, but I keep seeing those Batiste dry shampoo commercials and they make it look so fun and colorful. I started to think, what about cruelty-free dry shampoo options?

Dry shampoo saves water, your hairstyles and your time. I’ve listed brands that are highly loved and rated. None of these dry shampoos have talc. I personally would stay away from the aerosol products and choose either the foams or the powders.
