I have to wash my hair everyday. and as i wear extensions its not always possible as my hair takes about 45 mins to dry and then straighten, plus they fall out if they get wet 2 much, so i got this 2 use on my extentions n it works a miracle..leaves my hair bouncy n feelin and smelling clean.
I am one of the few who are disappointed with this product. This dry shampoo does help with my greasiness. After using Klorane before switching to this cheaper counter part, I still prefer the Klorane. The difference between the two, is when I use Batiste, it does not get rid of all the greasiness, nor does it re-volumize my hair the way klorane does. Instead my hair looks flat and all the shine in my hair is gone making it appear ashy and unhealthy. Furthermore, you can only get up to 4 weeks- and that is if you are really careful with how you use this product, because it runs out quickly. I suspect it is mostly due to me have longer hair (a few inches past my shoulders).
The only real plus to this product is that it is half the price of Klorane, Batiste retailed at $8CAD and Klorane $14CAD. However, I am planning on spending the extra $6 so I can have a product that does more for my hair.
A great inexpensive way to refresh your hair or absorb any oiliness if you don't have time to wash it! Be careful how close you spray it cos it can sometimes come out white, but you shouldn't have this problem if you hold it about 20-30cm from your hair. I usually brush it through afterwards and then style. At around AU$7 you really can't go wrong!
this product works as well as any expensive dry shampoo (klorane, rene furterer etc) and it's waaay cheaper! yes, it is a bit dulling, but i have found that is the compromise you're making with dry shampoo. however, in a few hours, my hair doesn't look as dull-once it's soaked in. the only reason i took off 1 lippie was bc of the smell....i hate the original smell-it's weirdly lemony and musky. the blush scent is a lighter floral, not too bad, but i really wish there was an unscented version! batiste needs to get on this!!
I cannot *live* without this stuff, in the summer especially. It's great when you need to wash but have no time. I also find that it gives my hair some extra body and oomph, which is always welcome :)
After this was constantly recommended on different boards as a great dry shampoo I decided to pick up a bottle when I went to Sally's. I've been searching for the perfect dry shampoo forever for my dry, thick, curly hair that I like to straighten and keep straight for at least a couple of days. It takes me about an hour to completely blow dry and straighten my hair so when I do straighten it I'd like it to remain that way as long as possible. After a couple of days my hair starts to get oily and a few blasts of Batiste and voila! Instant volume and non-oily hair! I swear I can keep my straight hair for days with this stuff! I got the "Blush" scent which smells really good and clean. Yes the bottle is kinda retro and 80's looking but who cares, for $8 and some change this is amazing. Before this I tried Oscar Blandi's Pronto dry shampoo which worked okay but left a lot of white powder residue on my scalp which is disgusting if you have to scratch your head. Batiste is a spray which won't leave nasty residue in your hair. I wanted to try Klorane but never got around to it. Now all that I will ever use is Batiste.
I have baby fine hair that gets oily at the roots if not washed daily. After reading reviews and being mentioned by my cousin that Sally's Beauty Supply carries a Dry Shampoo...I decided to give it a try which turned out to being one of the best discoveries for me ever. I tested this product after i took a nap...instanly, it removed the oil-y-ness from my roots and my hair was full of VOLUME, like "Porn-Status" BIG hair, LOL and leaving it feeling refreshed. A major PLUS, it is inexpensive and smells good!
Love, love, love! Batiste is one of my favorite dry shampoos (I like Psst! as well). I used to do the baby powder trick or use dry powder shampoos but I prefer this spray. It's much quicker and easier to blend. It also gives volume to the hair, which what I lose the most of on second day hair. My hair is fine and oily at the roots so I feel like I have to wash it everyday to get it looking its best. But it's good to give your hair a break too and this dry shampoo keeps me from feeling greasy.
They have a variety of scents. The blush one is so yummy! Definitely try Batiste out if you are looking for a dry shampoo. Can't beat it for the price.
Hmm, I am developing quite a habit for dry shampoo, and have now tried several brands:
A trick (that works for me), is to spray when the hair is just starting to get greasy. That way, I stay 'grease free' for another couple of days. If I wait til I am greasy and then spray, my hair seems to get heavy and stiff whatever brand I use.
BATISTE is the least expensive so far, the whitest (I can brush it out of my red-brown hair, but it takes some of the shine off), and if I am not careful I can look prematurely grey in places. It comes in two scents. The tropical is coconutty and pleasant. It definitely works, but has a slight tendency to dry my ends (I have long hair). A good, inexpensive staple, available in Boots the Chemist throughout the UK for about £2 a can. 3 stars.
OJON RUBOUT has a stronger smell, works very well, has virtually no colour, doesn't have to be brushed out nearly so well, and costs about £14 for 180 ml can. Yes, it is good, but the price is ridiculous. I have never had the nozzle clog, but all over the internet are reviews complaining about this, so I have obviously been lucky! From QVC only in the UK (or eBay, if you are a cheapskate, like me). 4 stars.
KLORANE OAT DRY SHAMPOO is the best of the 3. It has the nicest smell, and only a slight colour which is very easy to brush out. It can be used on successive days, and doesn't seem to build in the hair, and when I use a lot of it, it seems to make my hair fall in smooth even waves. It doesn't dry my hair out, but it does take a little of the shine off. At about £6 a can (150ml) I wouldn't call it cheap, but it is definitely affordable, and I would rather use this one than either of the other 2. The huge disadvantage is that I can't seem to find it anywhere but on the internet and the prices vary a lot. 5 Stars.
I have the tropical version of this product and the smell is lovely. This product is great for when you don't have time in the mornings to wash your hair, you simply spray it onto the roots and then brush it through your hair. I have very dark hair so I have to be careful to brush it all through otherwise it leaves a white mark but this product really does work and for less than £2 it's a bargain.
