Goodbye To Grease

I am not someone who reaches for a dry shampoo very often, but when I do it will always be a Batiste bottle. Currently I'm loving one of their more recent releases: Cherry

I am a big lover of fruity smells and this Cherry scented dry shampoo makes my hair smell fresh and fruity, whilst banishing that unwanted greasy look. I spray this into the roots of my hair, from a distance. I then wait for a few seconds before rubbing it in with my fingers then running a brush through my hair and voila! No more grease and my hair looks like it's been freshly washed.

Many people find that dry shampoos leave a white residue in their hair, giving them a premature ageing look.  I had this problem with another brand, but have never had it with Batiste. I personally don't see any residue and I find that if you use this sparingly (rather than spraying like a madwoman, hoping the powder will suck up all the oils) then no white spots will be left behind. Of course, you do need to work the product into the hair properly also.

The downside that I find with dry shampoos (any, not just Batiste) is they do remove the essential oils which your hair needs and they dehydrate your scalp. I noticed that when I started using dry shampoos a little more regularly, I was finding a little dandruff was building up due to having an overly dry scalp (even after washing my hair). I make sure I use them only if necessary now and I haven't had any further issues.

  1. I've recently started using dry shampoos. I have one from Ojon which is amazing, and one from Batiste. But the sound of the Batiste one terrifies me! It's so, so loud!! xo
