Batiste Blush dry shampoo

Since I've already reviewed Syoss dry shampoo (you can read it here), people are goint to start wondering about me. Don't worry, I do wash my hair in an old fashioned way, but when you have greasy hair every extra day of freshness makes a huge difference. It is not healthy to wash your hair every day (which I did) so I am in a constant search for a HG dry shampoo. Until now, I only tried Syoss (which didn't impress me) and this little fellow....

I was so surprised when I first saw this little bottle in DM about a month and a half ago. I haven't seen it since but it had its own shelf. They had one more version in brown bottle which was more expensive. This pink 200 ml/6.73 fl.oz. bottle that I picked (surprise, surprise) was 29,90 kunas (about 2.90 GBP, $5, 4 Euros), and the brown bottle was 39,90 kunas (abou 3.90 GBP, $7, 5 Euros). I think that one is for dark haired women but I might be wrong. In any case, that didn't seem fair to me.

This bottle will offer you 6-8 uses. I'm speaking from my own point of view (I have long and full blond hair).
I didn't say that before but this one comes in a spray bottle.

You have to start with brushed hair. They don't mention it and to be honest I haven't noticed that it leaves white residue on my clothes but you can put a towel on your shoulders to prevent getting dirty. Then spray the product on small sections of your hair close to the roots, using your fingers massage your scalp and leave for a while, then brush your hair one more time. And that is it!
I am a blonde so I haven't noticed any white residue on my hair but it does brighten my roots so it can be possible that it would be more difficult to handle on dark haired women. I suppose that is why they made another version of this in a brown bottle. Haven't tried it so I can't say for certain.

What surprised me the most is that this product really makes a difference for your hair. When I apply it, I get not one but two more days of fresh looking hair. Second day after applying it I tie it in a ponytail and it looks like I washed it and wanted to wear it up. Also, it adds volume. Lots of volume.

And now to the scent. It has a light floral scent which doesn't turn bad or start smelling like akcohol. Do I like it? NO. But it is tolerable. I even got compliments about it. People said that my hair smelled so fresh. Oh, if they only knew....
If the smell was different, I would say RUN to DM and get this one but with it this isn't my HG product. I like it and would repurchase it but I am still on the hunt for a HG product.

Have you tried it? Which dry shampoo is your favorite?

Tell me....

  1. I wasn't keen on the smell either until i tried the tropical one! It's definitely my favourtie dry shampoo!

    Also I wouldn't recommend the XXL volume one from Batiste. It gave my hair a horrible texture and made it feel greasier than before!

    1. Unfortunately, I haven't seen Tropical in our shops but I think it is coming. I've seen it on websites but many of them don't ship it internationaly because it is in a spray bottle.... something, something. I'll definitely try it if I manage to find it but I discovered some other brands that I am really liking.
      Thank you for your comment!
