Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo
Advantages: Smells nice, cheap and leaves hair feeling amazing!
Disadvantages: Over using does make the hair look dull and dry!
For the last few months I have been trying to leave my hair as long as possible without washing. If you wash your hair too frequently for example every day it removes your hairs natural oils which help to protect and moisture the hair. So instead of washing my hair every other day, I am washing it every 3-4 days. When I first started doing this my hair was becoming greasy quickly, so after recommendations of this product from friends, I headed straight to the shop.
-- Some information --
A beauty secret for over 30 years, Batiste Dry Shampoo is a must-have for girls who have more fun things to do than wash their hair! Batiste is an essential beauty "life saver" product that will leave your hair smelling fragrant and looking fabulous in seconds. (From Superdrug website)
-- The claim --
The essence of femininity, Blush is the floral, flirty way to turn heads. A few quick sprays instantly leaves hair feeling clean, fresh and full of body and texture.
-- Price and Availability --
Batiste blush comes in two sizes, 150ml which is the large size and a 50ml travel size. The price varies between stores the travel size is roughly around £1.50 and the large size is roughly £3. This is widely available in super markets, drug stores and on various websites online. I believe the price is very good, the larger size is better value for money, but the travel size is great if your not sure if your like the scent. There are many different scents from the batiste range, I have only ever used batiste blush, but looking forward to experimenting with the others.
-- Appearance --
Batiste blush comes in a can with a spray dispenser. The can is colourful, using the colours baby pink, hot pink, green and white to make the dry shampoo stand out. It comes with a secure green plastic lid which ensures it is protected to prevent leakages. On the front shows some information including the name of the product, directions of use and the ingredients.
-- Directions --
On the can it gives you some easy and useful directions. Firstly shake the can well before applying and spray the desired amount to areas of the hair. Continue by massaging the powder spray into your scalp, this is very it is increases the volume of your hair. Lastly brush out to make sure you distribute the product evenly throughout.
-- My experience --
I am extremely fond of this product, as I have never tried any other dry shampoos I have nothing to compare it to. It leaves my hair feeling refreshed, clean and smelling gorgeous! I wouldn't recommend only using this and never washing your hair, as I expect it will build up and leave your hair feeling disgusting. But using between washes it's brilliant, especially if your always on the go and don't have time to wash your hair. I love the volume it gives you just by you massaging it into your hair, I find there is no need for me to use any further products to create further volume after using. I also tend to use this before a night out the volume is amazing!
The scent is very fruity and flirty as the product claims, if you use to much it can be slightly over-powering and has made me feel a little sick, but this was when I started using this and applied way to much! The smell does tend to linger for a long time, which is great especially if you haven't washed your hair for a while.
I am looking forward to trying out the others in the batiste range and hopefully they will be just as good if not better than this product. There is no major faults for this product, only that I would not recommend using this instead of washing your hair as over time it could cause a build up and leave your hair quite dirty. I also find that if I do use to much of this product, it does make my hair look a little dull and dry. So only use in the most needed areas, as after you brush the remaining product throughout the hair.
-- Conclusion --
This is a fantastic product and would definitely recommend this for use in between washes. Leaves hair feeling refreshed, clean and smelling glorious!
Summary: Great product, can't wait to try others in the range!
