Dry shampoo for color treated hair?

I dyed my hair red last week for my birthday and now I am totally obsessed with keeping the color.

However, if I go a day without washing/conditioning it, my fine, thin hair gets terribly limp and oily. It looks just awful and gets worse the longer I go without washing and I absolutely cannot stand it. But I am determined not to wash out this color so quickly. I got John Frieda Radiant Red Color Magnifying Shampoo and Conditioner, and hopefully it helps preserve the color for a bit longer but it does nothing for my limp hair and I don't want to shampoo everyday, even with that.

Does dry shampoo really work well? Any particular brand that you can recommend? If you've dyed your hair red, too, I would appreciate any tips.

The dry shampoos have alcohol in them and that's going to strip color also.

Looking for the same thing. When I have highlights I love Bumble & Bumble dry shampoo for light blondes. I haven't found a red version locally. I use it more on the weeks I am getting roots but a few days from my appt. blonde roots poking out of red hair isn't very cute, lol, so maybe someone will have a good suggestion.

Found some b&b online. I guess I just haven't had any luck in the stores. I've just been going with hats when I am trying not to over shampoo.

If you go the cornstarch route you can add a bit of unsweetened cocoa to make it darker and blend in. Instead of looking like yout hair is powdered lol

I don't know how it works on darker shades, but Bath & Body Works has a spray dry shampoo. It smells good too, the cashmere scent that's pretty new? It's with their True Blue Spa stuff. I've noticed it kind of adds body, too, which is a nice added bonus for my limp hair.
