    It's no secret that dry shampoo is a staple for the R29 beauty team. Apparently, we're the world's laziest beauty editors, preferring to skip the styling in favor of a quick shot of the powdery stuff to hide our oily roots and zhuzh our coiff with minimal effort. But, that's not all that magic dry cleanser is good for — oh no. It's also an absolute clutch product for those times when you actually do want to put some effort into your 'do.

    Whether you're sporting a chic braid, beach waves, or just want to amp up your go-to pony, a hit of dry shampoo can take your summer style from pedestrian to pow. It's especially key for those of us with fine, straight, or just plain slippery locks, which can look limp and have a hard time holding those deconstructed looks we love so much in the easy, breezy summer. Yes, the right dry shampoo can give your hair the grip, texture, and piecey-ness that makes a volumized ponytail, undone milkmaid braid, or "I didn't go to the beach, but my hair sure looks like it did" waves possible on even the most squeaky-clean hair.

    Ahead, we've identified a few of our favorite dry shampoos for styling. Sure, they'll hide your greasy roots and make second-day hair look good, but these powders and sprays are also all-star styling aids. Click through, then tell us in the comments your go-to dry-shampoo tress trick. Share the love, people.
