I have fairly straight, manageable hair and as much as I love to wiggle my hair around, maintaining healthy hair and making it look “going out ready” everyday could be a task. Amongst others, one of the main issues I face with my hair is that the roots get oily in two days after washing.
Now, I am not the kind of person who would wash her hair every or alternate day for three simple reasons. First, the mother said I’d go bald just as soon with frequently washing my hair and that has been tried and tested. Second, I am flat lazy. And the third and the most important, I am very susceptible to cold. So I had to have a solution to this problem and dry shampoos seemed to sound like the answer to my prayers.
Batiste Dry Shampoo Review!
My experience with Batiste:
Batiste is a brand best known for their dry shampoos and have been in the market for a while now. I have used a couple of dry shampoos before but Batiste’s turned out to be the best! While most of them left my hair dry or back to greasy after only a couple of hours, this wonderful shampoo stayed for long.
I bought the Floral and Flirty Blush Seduction Fleurie, in a 50ml travel size bottle since I wanted to first give it a try as I have never used it before and also because it is easy to carry around. The name sounds sensuous doesn’t it? haha. Well then let me tell you that the smell is exactly how the name indicates.
Usage and Result:
The bottle has a spray nozzle and as per the instructions, you need to keep your hand 30 cms away from your head while spraying it. I was overwhelmed with this pleasant, fresh, floral scent as soon as I pressed the nozzle. The shampoo leaves a white residue as soon as you spray it on but instantly disappears once you rub your scalp and brush it off.
Honeslty, this shampoo is MAGIC! It soaked all the greasiness from my hair giving it a little extra volume than usual leaving it soft and bouncy.
Tips: Shake the bottle well before use and try cover your face with your other hand to avoid the spray getting into your eyes
I bought the 50 ml bottle for INR 249/- from Amazon and I did not have to pay any extra delivery charges, perhaps because I had ordered it during my 6 months free Amazon Prime time period. You can also buy Batiste Dry Shampoo Instant Hair Refresh Fruity & Cheeky Cherry, 50ml which is about the same price.
The shampoos apart from Amazon are also available in Nykaa in 200-250 ml bottles in a variety of other fragrances, based on different hair styles, textures and hair colors too, within the range of INR 649-749/-, so go ahead and take your pick.
Yes! Yes and Yes! I am going to use the Batiste dry shampoo for as long as I live for I am totally astonished with the results. Life has become a little effortless and I recommend this product to everyone dealing with greasy scalp issues, who run late to work or college and regularly washing and blow drying your just doesn’t fit into the schedule.
Hope the post helped. If you have any doubts or want to know more about this dry shampoo, do leave your comments and I would be happy to answer.
