Because sweaty, greasy strands just ain’t it, sis

Managing your hair in the flux of the seasons can sometimes feel like walking a tightrope.
The weather’s warming up and our once covetable ‘dewy glow’ is verging on ‘sweaty betty’ territory (and becoming an unwelcome hair product in the process), but after the hermetic winter we’ve just had, a can of dry shampoo just puts emphasis on the dryness we’ve been experiencing.
That’s why we’re forgoing heavy hair oil formulas that leave strands looking more greasy than glamorous, and reaching for dry oil mists that imbue lengths with startling shine and softness without weighing hair down.
Here, we’ve collated seven dry oil hair mists that “walk the line” as Johnny Cash would say, so you can embrace lustrous shine and yet still keep strands sweat-free and luscious this summer.
FUDGE Hed Shine
This lightweight formula is packed full of jojoba and argan oil to instil hair with buildable shine factor that smooths frizz and flyaways without leaving strands looking greasy. The fact that it’s now on sale at Priceline is just a sweet little bonus in our opinion.

IGK SPEECHLESS Hair and Body Dry Oil
Antioxidant-rich and nourishing, this dry oil formula highlights avocado and amla oils to soften strands and impart impressive shine. This handy multi-purpose pick can also be used on the body so you can enjoy grease-free hydration from head to toe.
