For the amount of times that I mentioned Batiste Strength & Shine dry shampoo in my posts, both Favourites and Empties, I really think that it was about time to write a few more words about it!
This is what Batiste has to say about it:
"Batiste Strength & Shine Dry Shampoo enriched with L'Arginine, is perfect to use between washes on hair that is dull, tired or is just not looking its best. A quick burst revitalises hair, removes excess oil and leaves hair feeling gorgeously clean and fresh with added body and texture. For hair that feels stronger and more resiliant. Now both you and your hair can shine." All I can say is that I agree!
The philosophy behind dry shampoos or why to use them is very simple. They will prolong the time between traditional washing of your hair and will add volume. Strength & Shine does both very successful!
And now how to use it. First of all, shake the bottle well and then spray the shampoo onto your roots approximately 30 cm from hair. Massage through with fingertips, brush and style. When you first apply it, you will see white residue but don't worry, after massaging and brushing, it will vanish.
What I found as the most usual flaw with dry shampoos is their smell. Most of them have very distinctive smell and not very friendly for my nose buds. But this one has a very mild scent which doesn't linger, so I am completely OK with it! It does what it is supposed to do, my hair looks fresh and stays shiny (also a problem for other dry shampoos), doesn't look strawy and it adds volume.
It comes in a 200 ml/6.73 fl.oz. bottle which will last you for 6-10 times of usage, depending on the length of your hair and just how greasy it is?! The last two times might be slightly less effective but it will still do the job.

You can find this and other Batiste dry shampoos everywhere (Bipa, DM, Kozmo, Müller...) for average price of 35 kunas (5.25$/4.70 Euros/3.57 GBP), although you can often buy them on sale. I bought mine during one for 19.90 kunas.
I tried out many dry shampoos but this one is my favourite! So, yes I am giving a thumb up to try it!
What about you? Do you use dry shampoos? Have you tried this one? Any recommendations?
