Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, $18

Launched in 1972, this dry shampoo was one of the original top picks of hairdressers looking to squeeze extra days out of a blowout or style. It also gives hair instant "second day" texture, making it the perfect choice for creating intricate updos—which may explain why it's a favorite of so many Hollywood A-listers, including Sarah Jessica Parker and Rebecca Romijn.

Rita Hazan Root Concealer, $24

The NYC-based colorist re-imagines the spray-on shampoo as a way to temporarily cover up unsightly roots (especially those along the part and around the hairline) allowing you to stretch the time between color appointments. Spray it on (there are four hair color matching shades to choose from), wait 5 minutes and relax. The color promises to stay put until you shampoo it out.
