Is the reign of dry shampoo already over? It seems impossible, and yet the newest styling product on our radar could easily be replacing your favorite formula. It’s called dry conditioner—the perfect mix of a seriously good oil absorber and a heavy-duty hair softener.
To get the scoop on this mysterious miracle worker, we caught up with stylist extraordinaire Oribe, cofounder and creative director of the eponymous line. “I’m not a big fan of dry shampoo because of the way that it makes hair feel,” he reveals. “Dry conditioner also absorbs oil and dirt, while adding instant softness and silkiness to strands.”
We already adore Oribe for his industry favorite Dry Texturizing Spray, so we didn’t think twice about joining the excitement over his latest launch. Surprise: it’s a dry conditioner! “My Soft Dry Conditioner has argan oil to hydrate and nourish and neem oil for conditioning,” he says. “It leaves hair soft, brushable, and full—it’s gorgeous.”
To use Soft—and other dry conditioners—simply spray on as you would a dry shampoo. The difference? You can spray dry conditioners throughout the hair shaft and toward the ends for that covetable silky texture. It’s the secret to an unbeatable hair day.
