Not many people like to admit it, but we all have days when we ‘really’ should wash our hair but we can’t be bothered. I opening admit it, washing my hair to me has always been a chore. I’m quite happy to spend hours styling but washing it couldn’t be more tiresome. When I first heard about dry shampoos it was back 18 years ago and they were usually associated with hospital patients or for the older ladies who wanted something to freshen their hair in between the shampoo and sets at the hair dressers. I remember thinking how nasty they were, making your hair really greasy and the smell of them was quite repulsive!

Now lets zoom forward many years and as with time comes development and knowledge. Many people know of Batiste as the ‘Hair Survival Product for Festivals,’ please bare in mind Batiste’s dry shampoo range isn’t just for people who are staying away and camping! Their dry shampoo can be used in a few ways and not just as a hair refresher in between washes.

I have 3 cans of Batiste Dry Shampoo at present, 2 were sent to me from a PR company to review and the other one I purchased myself.

I probably use dry shampoo about 3 times a week, sometimes more if I need an extra boost. You see it’s really useful stuff;

  • Removes grease from hair giving it the impression of being cleaner.
  • If you lift sections and spray this underneath into the roots it creates volume.
  • Can make your hair look thicker if you spray through dry hair and then blow dry.
  • If you have been out and your hair doesn’t smell fresh (Smokey rooms, BBQ smells etc), it masks the smells and your hair smells perfumed and gorgeous! Its like Fabreeze for hair!

Now from one product who would have thought you could do all that? And you thought it was just to make your greasy hair look less skanky didn’t you!

Batiste really do know what they are talking about when it comes too dry shampoos. With years of knowledge under their belts they have perfected a product so its suitable for anyone. I even use it on my children if they need freshening up and they love the different scents! I was counting on their website and there are 13 different scents available, so I think there really must be a scent for everyone.

I currently have Batiste’s Tropical Dry Shampoo (A mixture of Coconut and Exotic fragrances), Batiste’s Blush Dry Shampoo (Floral and Flirty Fragrance) and their Clean and Classic Original Fragrance (Slightly Sweet with a hint of citrus) and love them all. I usually go 2 days between washing my hair and find on day 2 I have a light spritz all over with Batiste’s Dry Shampoo, Day 3 if I am not washing it for whatever reason (Possibly laziness I admit it!) I will lift section and spray under them into the roots just to add some volume back into my hair.

My hair always smells great too in between washes and the fragrance really does last; the Tropical one is probably my favourite scented one I have tried. But with 13 different types available and I think I’ve only tried 4 I really need to work my way through the others.

People take vitamins and tonics as ‘pick me ups’ for their body, in my opinion Batiste’s Dry Shampoo is a ‘Pick me Up’ for your hair!

Batiste can be bought from most supermarkets and pharmacies and if you shop around you often can find it on offer. They cans come in little 50ml travel sizes which are great for slipping in your hand bag and cost around £1.52, or you can also get 150ml cans in some scents and 200ml cans for £2.99.

Have you tried Batistes Dry Shampoo range? What’s your flavour (I am now thinking of Craig David)?

Lots of Love,
