If you are someone who often goes to the gym, or who were they were simply living life and staying out late doing things like staying out late, you need strong shampoo that will dry any excess oiliness and sweat, leaving you smelling great. Perk Up is amika's solution to the problem.

The unique ingredient that sets Perk Up apart from many other dry shampoo's is the small, sphere-shaped bead called aminoxyl. The small bead is small, so it gets distributed evenly throughout the hair.

Perk Up specifically uses this technology to absorb excess oiliness, leaving you with a fresh, clean smell. This product is alcohol-free which means it will give you fresh-looking hair with zero alcohol smell or residue, even if you skip the hair dryer.

Perk Up comes in a 5.3 oz squeeze bottle with a lift-lock flip cap for easy, mess-free application.

Whether you want to freshen up hair, remove excess oil or for men, use it for a quick refreshing after an especially long day, amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo will make a fantastic addition to your routine.

The only thing to be careful about is making sure you put the dry shampoo on after washing your hair, so that the product has the chance to absorb oil, rather than being wiped away by water.
