Review: Batiste Dry Shampoo


I have to start out by telling you all that I have the thinnest, naturally flat, and particularly oily hair. I must take a shower every day otherwise my hair becomes matted down and oily. Let me tell you; it is not cute. It is a thorn in my side, and some days I do not feel like washing and blow drying my hair before I go to work, so I end up putting my hair up in a disgusting pony tail. Yet, it is still abundantly clear to everyone around me, that I desperately need a shower.

Today I was perusing around YouTube and saw that one of the YouTube pages I follow had uploaded some reviews on various dry shampoo products. I was instantly intrigued. I have heard a lot about dry shampoo, but always shrugged it off because I assumed it would be difficult to use, bad for my hair, and give minimal results. After doing some hefty research around the internet, I came across the Batiste Dry Shampoo. The general consensus (at least from the information I acquired) was that this is the best dry shampoo available at the drugstore. Always being about the best buy for the best price, I was on a mission to find this product.

I was in luck! About a minute down the road from my house is a Walgreens that happened to have it in stock! As soon as I could, I rushed down to the Walgreens. I found the travel sized spray can of Batiste Dry Shampoo in Floral and Flirty Blush for $3.99.

I couldn’t wait to get home and try it out! I walked in the front door, and made a b-line for the bathroom to test it out. My hair was nice and oily and completely matted down today, so it was a perfect specimen to apply this product to.

 I have to say, this dry shampoo worked well for me. From what I hear, the number one concern with using dry shampoo is that it can leave a white and sometimes grey sheen over your hair. In my opinion, this dry shampoo doesn’t really do that. With this product, the key is to make sure you hold it 30cm. away from the area you are targeting, as the packaging directs you to. If you hold it too close the product will not distribute evenly and you will end up with a grey-ish sheen over that area. I was shocked to find that it actually brought volume back to my hair, and removed the appearance of excess oil. I am very impressed, and totally recommend you go check it out.

The one thing I will note about the Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush, is that I do not care for the scent at all. It is not the worst thing in the world, and it is certainly tolerable. However,  I will definitely be searching for a different scent when I repurchase this shampoo!

Absolutely thrilled with my Diva 4 Less find!
