Batiste Original Dry Shampoo
Advantages: really does work
Disadvantages: none for me, it did what I wanted
I have to wash my hair every other day as it can get particuarly greasy- as i have a dark blonde/mousey colour type of hair I find it shows up a lot more when greasy than my darker haired friends.
There have been times when I've forgotten to wash my hair at night- I cant do it too late as its very long (down to my belly button type long) and a nightmare to get dry and then I realise I have baby group in the morning and trying to keep my toddler occupied while I get my hair washed and dried can be a bit of a fiasco.
Some mornings Ive had to resort to putting talcum powder in my hair for the morning and then doing my hair in the evening. Batiste does a much better job!
I had heard of dry shampoo before but wasnt sure whether it particuarly worked, having had a few talcum powder in mornings in the last month i decided to give it a go and was pretty impressed!
You spray it 30cm from head, it comes out sort of like a white powder (quite like talcum powder actually). You then massage it into hair and brush/style as normal.
It really does make a difference, my hair not only looked but felt less greasy to the touch. Obviously its no substitute for a real wash & shampoo but its definitly close.
Being the original brand it doesnt have a particular scent to it. I'd like to try out the scented brands in the future and see how they compare. The effect lasts all day but if you werent planning to wash your hair the next day you'd have to reapply.
I wouldnt say it particuarly boosts the body and texture of hair as it claims but not much does for my hair as its so long and heavy!
Design wise my bottle looks slightly different to the picture. Its tall with a clear lid. The botle is a mix of yellow, dark green, light green and white diagnol style lines. It has the batise dry shampoo brand written in green font and has the product type (original) in a green circle clearly on the bottle. The back of the bottle states dirctions of use, cautions, ingredients and company address/website.
Its currently selling in Tesco for £2.99 for a 200ml bottle although you can buy smaller bottles (easy perhaps to fit in your handbag!)
Id definitly say this is a good one to have in your handbag on those mornings where its needed!
This product is ideal for those with long hair who know that a hair wash and dry isnt always a quick thing (espcially if again like me you have very tangly hair!). It would also be good for someone who is keen on camping or festivals.
My mother in law found it quite useful after a shoulder replacement op when she was unable to wash her hair for a little while.
Definitly one to keep in the cupboard!
Summary: I'd reccomend, especially to those with long hair who dont always have time to wash and dry.
