7 Best Dry Shampoos for Keratin Treated Hair: Refreshing, Revitalizing, and Volumizing
Dry shampoo is highly recommended for keratin-treated hair because of its waterless cleansing capability and convenience.
Ideal for use when traditional washing options are limited or not recommended, a dry shampoo provides an effortless way to refresh your hair and scalp by absorbing dirt, oil, and impurities without the need for water.
Simply spray or dust it onto your scalp, massage it with your fingertips or use a brush or comb to evenly distribute it, and voila!
Your hair appears refreshed and volumized!
However, you must note that dry shampoo is not a replacement for regular shampooing. For keratin-treated hair, use a gentle and sulfate-free regular shampoo in tandem to maintain the treatment’s integrity and extend its longevity.
Dry shampoo is recommended to be used in between your regular washes to extend your wash days for longer.
So let’s have a look at the best options.

1. Eva NYC Invisible Oil-absorbing Dry Shampoo
The EVA NYC Invisible Dry Shampoo is an excellent choice for keratin-treated hair due to its superior oil-absorbing performance.
This product is formulated to reduce oiliness without compromising your keratin treatment. It uses rice starch to absorb excess sebum and oil from the scalp and hair, effectively extending the fresh look of keratin-treated hair keeping it clean, voluminous, and manageable between washes.
The gentle nature of this dry shampoo ensures it does not strip or disrupt the keratin coating. It preserves the smoothness and straightness imparted by the keratin treatment and prolongs its lifespan.
The product is phthalate-free, sulfate-free, gluten-free, paraben-free, vegan, and it contains argan oil to nourish the hair and enhance shine.

2. Vegamour GRO (Refreshing and Revitalizing)
The Vegamour Gro Dry Shampoo refreshes and revitalizes keratin-treated hair with its vegan, plant-based formula, combining phyto-actives, rice starch, mung bean, red clover, and kaolin clay.
Phyto-actives target the scalp to rejuvenate hair follicles, enhancing hair health, while rice starch effectively absorbs oil, ensuring hair stays light and non-greasy.
Mung bean and red clover, rich in nutrients, adds strength and vitality to keratin-treated hair.
Kaolin clay detoxes and volumizes, absorbs impurities, and gives your hair a fuller appearance.
What I love the most about Vegamour Gro’s dry shampoo is its zero-benzene and talc formula, making it a safe, gentle, and an environmentally-friendly product. It is better than popular dry shampoos like Batiste, which have toxic aerosols like butane and propane.
The Vegamour Gro Dry Shampoo is ideal for vegans and environmentally-conscious consumers.

3. Kristin Ess (Color-Safe)
The Kristin Ess Dry Shampoo is color-safe, ensuring that it not only refreshes your hair without water but also protects your hair color from fading or changing.
It is an excellent hair product for dry styling, finishing, and adding texture, shine and hold.
I am particularly sold on how good it is on color-treated hair, from blonde to dark brunette hair. You won’t see any white casts, and it blends in easily with just your fingertips. No brush needed.
Its color-safe capability is particularly beneficial for those who have invested in keratin treatments and hair coloring. The product helps maintain the vibrancy and longevity of the color, ensuring that your hair continues to look as radiant and vivid as the day it was colored.

It eliminates dirt and odors, leaves your hair feeling refreshed and full of texture, and extends the life of your blowouts with find powders that blend easily without leaving white chalky residue.
Klorane combines the science of pure natural plant-based ingredients to make healthier alternative products rather than slapping in the cheap toxic chemical ingredients we see in the average Joe hair sprays and dry shampoos on the high street. Klorane is a premium brand you’ll most likely see in upmarket hair salons.
92% of customers who used it felt their hair was clean in less than 5 minutes.

5. Hask (Volumizing)
The Hask Volumizing Dry Shampoo is excellent for those seeking to add volume to their hair after a keratin treatment.
Some may experience hair that has reduced volume, lying flat against the scalp after getting a keratin treatment. The lack of volume may be due to the extra weight of the keratin coating or your hair being too fine.
But do not despair!
The Hask Dry Shampoo is designed to cleanse your hair and significantly enhance its volume. Upon application, this product works by lifting the roots, creating the appearance of thicker, more abundant hair. This root-lifting effect is especially beneficial for those seeking a fuller look, adding a noticeable volume boost throughout the hair.
The effect is almost like an instant amplification of your hair’s natural body and fullness.
Users have noted that, unlike other dry shampoos, this product does not leave a blotchy white residue, a testament to its high-quality formulation.
Moreover, the fresh scent of floral tea adds an enjoyable sensory experience to its use, making hair care not just a routine but a delightful ritual.
- No sulfates and no paraben
- Long-lasting oil absorption from hair and scalp

6. Ouai (Odor-Neutralizing)
The OUAI Super Dry Shampoo is ideal for neutralizing sweat and odors, particularly beneficial for keratin-treated hair, which can sometimes retain a chemical scent post-treatment.
The Super Dry Shampoo’s Melrose Place fragrance, a sophisticated blend of rose, bergamot, lychee, cedarwood, and white musk, is not just a cover-up. It acts as an olfactory reset for your hair, transforming the usual post-keratin chemical smell into a delightful sensory experience.
It brings that just-showered look and feel to your hair without the need for water.
Using volcanic materials in its ingredients list speaks to OUAI’s commitment to hair health. These natural elements help detoxify and cleanse the hair, further boosting the shampoo’s effectiveness and the overall health of your hair.
While it’s true that some users long for a version tailored for dark hair, the current formulation’s white residue is a common trait among dry shampoos, it’s a small trade-off for a product that not only revives your hairstyle but also infuses it with a luxurious, fresh scent, and remarkable volume.
OUAI’s ethos, “for real life, for real people,” is embodied in this product.
Developed by celebrity stylist Jen Atkin, it’s clear that the Super Dry Shampoo is designed with practicality and luxury in mind, making it a go-to choice for those busy days, particularly for those with keratin-treated hair seeking a quick, volumizing, and refreshing fix.

The SGX NYC Dry Touch Volumizing Dry Shampoo is a prime choice for enhancing texture and volume of keratin-treated hair. This product masterfully intertwines the benefits of natural ingredients to cleanse and elevate your hair’s texture and body.
Central to its formulation is the texturizing prowess it brings. Infused with bamboo, known for its strong yet lightweight cleansing properties, it adeptly removes oil, giving your hair a cleaner, texturized look without any heaviness. The inclusion of red algae extract offers anti-inflammatory benefits that nurture the scalp, an underpinning factor in achieving voluminous, texturized hair.
This dry shampoo shines in revitalizing limp, second-day hair. Its formula works like a charm in bringing life and volume back to your locks, making it indispensable for busy mornings or quick touch-ups. The white ginger extract in the mix enhances this revitalizing and texturizing effect, ensuring your hair doesn’t just look clean and rejuvenated and full of life.

Why Dry Shampoo is Beneficial for Keratin-Treated Hair
Dry shampoo is beneficial for keratin-treated hair for the following reasons:
- Minimizes washing frequency:
It preserves your treatment from being washed away too quickly.
- Gentle cleansing:
Dry shampoo absorbs excess oil and dirt without the harsh chemicals found in some regular shampoos, which can strip away the keratin coating.
- Enhances texture and volume:
It adds volume and texture to hair, making it look fuller and more vibrant, which complements the smoothing effect of keratin treatments.
Ideal for busy schedules, it offers a quick and convenient way to refresh hair without the time commitment of a full wash and dry.
- Extends blowouts:
Dry shampoo is a practical, hair-friendly choice for extending the life and appearance of keratin-treated hair.
While dry shampoos are great for in-between washes, regular washing with a suitable shampoo is also essential for scalp hygiene.
For Regular Washing, Use a Sulfate-free Keratin-safe Shampoo
Sulfate-free shampoos are the ideal mainstay for regular washing of keratin-treated hair. These shampoos are gentle compared to regular drugstore shampoos and are formulated to protect the keratin coating on the hair.
These keratin-safe shampoos gently cleanse the scalp and hair while preserving moisture and the integrity of the keratin treatment to ensure your hair remains smooth, shiny, and frizz-free for longer.
Here is the list of sulfate-free shampoos to use after keratin treatment.
Use Dry Shampooo in Between Washes
Incorporating dry shampoo into your routine between washes with a sulfate-free shampoo establishes a holistic care regimen. This approach not only maintains the health of your keratin-treated hair but also ensures its longevity and vibrancy.
For best results, find a dry shampoo that can offer the following benefits:
- Has good oil-absorbing capability
- Refreshes and revitalizes hair and scalp for up to 3 days
- Gentle on keratin-treated hair (check reviews)
- Volumizing and texturizing
- Does not leave white chalky residues
- Good scent
- Blends in easily
