The "Rush Brush" Is a Game-Changer for Dry Shampoo Freaks On the Go

You won't be leaving home without it.

Even when it's travel size, a can of dry shampoo just doesn't lend itself to being tossed into a carry-all. Not that that stops us...

The addiction is real 24/7—it begins in the morning, helping us to make our bedhead look intentional (ha!), is reawakened during our hair's midday slump, and even makes an appearance during our two-minute fix before happy hour. But thanks to a new innovation, our hustle is about to become way less of a hassle.

Cake Beauty, indie purveyor of products that smell good enough to eat, just dropped your dirty hair's new secret weapon: The Rush Brush (opens in new tab). A super-lightweight, makeup-brush-like dispenser filled with tinted dry shampoo that comes in three different shades. You just remove the cap, brush around the hairlines/roots, and disperse as needed. Then, use your fingers to blend the powder, shake out the roots, and move the dry shampoo through the ends for an all-over bombshell effect.

However, if you tend to be a little heavy-handed with dry shampoo (opens in new tab), The Rush Brush doesn't release a lot of product at a time. You might have to keep layering it on, which is why it's best for quick touch-ups as opposed to a whole head treatment.

As if the portability isn't enough of a draw to this mechanical little wonder, the formula is made with oil-absorbing corn starch, conditioning calendula, and soothing chamomile, as well as free of harsh chemicals (AKA zero talc, parabens, and sulfates). Not to mention, it smells utterly lovely with hints of vanilla, caramelized sugar, and lemon.

So whether you hair needs some de-greasing, a boost in the volume department, or you'd just like it to smell lovely, RB (yes, we've already nicknamed it) has got you.
