Batiste Fresh Dry Shampoo
Advantages: Actually works really well, smells great
Disadvantages: Just remember to brush it though otherwise it can look really powdery.
Dry shampoo isn't designed to be a substitute for washing your hair. If your hair really is that disgusting, just wash it.. seriously. Dry shampoo is perfect for inbetween washes, when your hair isn't completely disgusting but could just do with a little freshen up. From what I make of it, it's basically a fine powder with a fresh scent with you can spray into your hair. Many people put talcum powder in their hair to soak up any oil in their hair and Batiste dry shampoo works on the same premise.
There are many different variations of Batiste. You can buy it for brown hair, blonde hair, tropical scented and cherry scented but I think the Fresh variation is the best. Really the only way to describe the smell is Fresh - pathetic, I know. But it really is a nice fragrance which isn't overpowering or underwhelming. You can tell it's there without stinking of it!
I think the product actually works really well for freshening up hair and as soon as you use it you can notice a difference. My hair smells better and looks a lot cleaner as well. Again, it's no substitute for washing your hair, but it's perfect for when it's looking a bit tired and lifeless. you just have to remember to not spray it too close to your hair otherwise you get really awful patches where the powder is really concentrated! You must also remember to brush it through your hair otherwise it can end up looking a little grey and well, powdery. As long as you do these things, you can't even tell you've got it in your hair.
The price is really good and they come in different sized bottles as well. I normally go for the largest bottles/cans because it usually stays at home but you can also buy the smaller more portable sized ones. Superdrug usually have them on offer which makes them even more of a better buy as well! I've found that I need to use less of the Batiste products compared to Superdrug's own-brand version so it seems to last much longer as well.
I think the Batiste is definitely the best dry shampoo on the market and with all the other fragrances besides 'Fresh' you're bound to find one you love.
Summary: The perfect product for in-between washes.
