I understand why this is a cult classic: The lightest sweep over the scalp works powerfully and this particular one in the green bottle has a clean - almost laundry detergent - scent which is not a bad way to go in hot weather. It's totally different than the candyish-powdery smell of all the other formulas including the one for Brunettes which can get cloying. The original formula is definitely the favored.

If you have dark hair too, use a light hand & target only the few oiliest zones to avoid looking like you tripped head-first into an ashtray. Following directions by using a boar bristle brush to distribute as the finishing touch is highly recommended.

Yeah - this product is OK in my book

I have only tried a couple brands of dry shampoo but this is my favourite. It is easier to work into your hair and it smells really good. I have brown hair and I did not find it left any colour, just apply a little bit at a time. I will buy this again once I run out of my other stuff.

HG status! I've tried other dry shampoos (Aussie & Suave, I think there were a couple other brands nothing stands out in my mind). this does not leave a whitish cast in my hair but there is a secret: blast ur hair on high no heat w a hair dryer to disperse the product & I do not always comb thru my hair when I wear it curly l simply finger comb & scrunch form the curls/waves & simply wetting my hair down a bit will restore any lost or shine from using this. Warning that this can make hair look dull if overapplied to any 1 area so make sure ur constantly spraying short bursts of it moving it at the same time don't concentrate it on one area altho I tend to put it mostly on the roots but the blow dryer will disperse it. I find I can't use dry shampoo unless I blast it w cold air from my hair dryer that truly is what u need to do if u find it gives u a whitish cast or dirty dull look. This helps to scent ur hair nobody likes the scent of dirty hair it's only 2nd to BO if ur skipping a shower 2-3x in a row it's something to consider maybe investing also in hair perfume the 1s from Aquolina are really good! I have 2 of them & u can def use w dry shampoo & hair perfumes give back some shine. But yeah dirty hair smell (also smoky hair odor, be it if ur a smoker or spent a night at the club etc) is downright unattractive on either gender. IJS.

The best dry shampoo I've used, including the other versions of Batiste dry shampoo.

My daughter and I both use this. She is blonde with very long hair, and she is able to spritz lightly in the morning, brush through with her fingers, and be off.

I'm an auburn/dark strawberry blonde and this definitely leaves a white residue I'm not able to immediately brush through. It simply won't brush through for me. So I spray my hair the night before and sleep on it. The natural tossing and turning I do at night helps the dry shampoo to do its magic and I'm fresh in the morning with no white residue.

I wash my hair every second day. I use this in the evening of the second day if I'm busy or running behind and can't get to washing my hair. However the effects last only a day for me and I need to be sure I wash my hair that evening.

I would love to find something that doesn't leave a white residue and allows more than one day of wear. Until then, this is a great product for both my daughter and me.

I have repurchased and will continue to. One lippie off for the the white residue.

This is the best dry shampoo i have ever used. I have very oily and fine hair that gets greasy by the end of the day. I have never been able to skip a shampoo but with this dry shampoo i can! It soaks up all of the oil even after a day at the gym. I am very pleased! Ps. I am also a brunette and it does leave your hair white if you spray too much but just brush it out if you do! I spray it at night before i go to bed and let it sit (dont brush it out), and in the morning i spray a bit more, do my makeup etc and then brush it out. Works perfectly!

I feel terrible saying I didn't like this. :/
About my hair: it's dark-ish blonde, VERY VERY greasy (I have to wash it every single day or I look really disgusting), fine and long.

I have been using baby powder on my hair for a while, now. If you've never tried it: it's very powdery, so it does leave a residue that you can feel and see, but it soaks up the oils FOR REAL. Because I'm blonde, I don't mind the residue very much, it just kind of disappears once I rub my scalp.
Recently I had to travel and decided to buy my first bottle of dry shampoo ever, because taking baby powder on a trip it's obviously not practical. I had heard amazing things about Batiste and everyone seems to love it so much, so I decided to get it. I first bought the Fresh scent, but couldn't stand it. It gave me imediate headaches, so I returned it and got the Original scent.

I have used this product multiple times now, so here's what I think of it:

1) I do like the scent of it, it's quite citrusy and clean without being overwhelming. It gave no headaches.
2) It doesn't leave too much of a residue and I believe this will work for any hair colour as long as you blend it into your scalp. Never forget to do that, or else you'll have a white blob in the middle of your head.
3) It doesn't feel powdery, which is something that really bothers me about baby powder. Whenever my boyfriend touches my hair, he imediately knows I have it on (he doesn't understand the struggles).
4) Didn't make my hair tangly or stiff, but rather flowy and soft
5) Now, what I DON'T like about it's that it didn't do the only thing I was expecting it to do: clean my hair. It seriously does nothing. The effects are so subtil they're barely noticeable. At first, I thought I wasn't using enough, so I spritzed a few times in each section of hair (which is honestly a waste), but my hair still looked dirty. Maybe a little less, but dirty. Unlike baby powder, that would keep me clean for a few days, this made my hair slightly less gross for a few hours, and then it would look horrible again. The only way I could use it without being pissed was at the end of the day, when my hair isn't greasy yet but it's already starting to look limp, so a little oompf is appreciated.

I've tried the XXL Volume only once before, and I remember I really liked it. It gave volume, despite making my hair a little tangly but it definitely cleaned my hair in just a few spritzes.

Overall, I don't understand the point of this and I don't know why it didn't work for me. Because this is affordable, I would recommend trying it out if you're curious. I believe it could work for hairs that don't get extremely greasy but could use a little pick me up. If your hair is similar to mine, though, I don't see how it could be any good.

This is the best dry shampoo I've tried so far. It's cheap and it works.

I've tried several scents from bastiste, and this one was what worked the best. It's very white when applied (I have dark hair), but after brushing the hair it's almost gone, and the hair looks nice and not oily. I totally recommend to try it :)

Batiste is the only affordable dry shampoo that can completely rescue oily hair two or three days after hair washing. I usually apply it once washed hair has become oily, but I will also put it on in advance if I'm going out somewhere where I'll be hot and sweaty to give it texture and help keep it looking good all night.

I bought this as an emergency buy when I was working an afternoon shift followed by a night shift followed by a morning shift right after redyeing my hair, and didn't have the time or opportunity to go anywhere but the local supermarket in the hour's break before the night shift began.

It's OK, is all I can really say about it. It leaves a pale residue, but at the very least it's an even pale residue. My long-term hair colour is Special Effects Iguana Green, so washing it as little as possible is key to keeping the colour fresh for longer and avoiding spending inordinate amounts of money on dye (SFX is difficult to find and expensive to buy in the UK).

A week to ten days is my optimum hair-washing frequency. I'm on day four, with being cooped up in a showercap during showering and facial cleansing having left my hair rather limp. Having just used this, it has definitely put the bounce back in my hair and made it look far less greasy, although the roots still feel oily (though not sticky) to the touch. My velvet-green is a full shade lighter, however, and looking much less vibrant. This might be less of an issue for mid-to-light, virgin hair, but in my case vibrancy and brightness of colour is what I was aiming at by having green hair in the first place, so it's a little sad to see.

I wouldn't exactly keep this on my must-haves shelf but as an emergency buy, it wasn't bad. It does the job and doesn't make me look like I have a bad case of dandruff. Three stars.
