I can’t live without my daily spray of Batiste’s Dry Shampoo! I don’t just use dry shampoo to get my hair by to the next wash, I use it too freshen up my hair so it smells good and also to give it a bit of body at the roots if I am feeling lazy and can’t be bothered to blow dry. Since finding ‘dry shampoos’ last year giving my hair a quick spritz in the morning has become a part of my daily routine of getting ready, just like brushing my teeth or putting on my moisturiser.

My favourite dry shampoo or choice needs no introduction – I love Batiste! I have done a post before on my love of Batiste (Review : Batiste Tropical, Classic and Blush) and it was also one of my Favourite Product of December 2011.

I recently was asked if I would like to try the New Batiste Wild dry shampoo and jumped at the chance, especially when I am such a massive fan!

**Batiste say,’Unleash your inner animal with this sassy new dry shampoo with real bite. Wild is for daring girls who are in touch with their animal instinct. A feisty Oriental fragrance with loads of personality, it’s the perfect partner when you’re out on the prowl.’


Which is more wild, my Bengal Sim or Batiste’s Wild Dry Shampoo?

First thing I love about Batiste Wild is the can! I love leopard print things (I even have a Bengal cat with leopard like spots) and the can is striking and fun. It is easy to pick out on a shelf or find in a dark hand bag.

The scent of Batiste’s Wild is slightly Musk like and does remind me of a subtle oriental like smell. Its slightly earthy too. I really love the scent and have to say it has taken the place of my other favourite Batiste shampoo Tropical! As with all the Batiste dry shampoos the scent isn’t heady nor is it overpowering. It just freshens your hair much like Fabreeze can freshen your clothes and furniture!

I have also found Batiste Dry Shampoos can be great on hair extensions if you have put a little too much serum or heat protectant on them and they look a bit straggly or greasy.

There are 2 ways you can apply dry shampoos;

Firstly spray directly onto your hair holding the can about 30 cms away from your head. Wait about a minute and then brush through to evenly distribute and help the dry shampoo work its magic.

Secondly you can also spray directly onto a brush and then groom through your hair. I find this method works well for one particular area you may have a ‘oil’ build up or especially for extensions when you want to concentrate the dry shampoo to one area and work it well into the hair.

Batistes ranges are fantastic value too and often can be found on offer at Boots, Superdrug and Supermarkets. Batiste’s Wild is definitely a firm favourite in my books and I can’t wait to see what ‘scent’ they will bring out next!

Have you released your inner animal?

Lots of Love,

Mel xxxx
