This is my first time trying an “official” dry shampoo. I’ve tried DIY methods that didn’t really work so I thought I’d try a product that was made for the job. This one retails for about $8 and you get 200 ml.
Batiste claims that this product “revitalizes hair, adds body and texture and leaves it feeling clean and fresh” without having to wash your hair. You just spray it into the roots, massage it in, and brush out your hair.
I’ve tried this several times on varying degrees of dirty hair. It works best if your hair is just ever so slightly oily and needs a quick refresh. For example, say you washed your hair in the morning, worked a long day at the office and want to freshen up for date night. It leaves a pleasantly clean fragrance on your hair and it does add just a little bit of body. It makes your hair feel soft but I wouldn’t say it makes it feel clean at all. You can use a lot of it before you can start to see a white cast (on darker hair).
It doesn’t do anything if your hair is very oily, which for me would be 2nd or 3rd day hair. I need to wash my hair daily because it is very fine and straight so the tiniest amount of oil instantly makes it flat.
I won’t be buying this product again because it just doesn’t work with my hair type. It would likely work better for those with thicker, wavy, or curly hair. I’m bummed because I want to find a product that I can use to skip a wash and this is not it. If you know of a good one, please let me know in the comments!
