Batiste Dry Shampoo - Paisley

Over the past couple years Dry Shampoo has sky rocketed in popularity, they come in all differrent price ranges, colours, scents, sizes, etc. to cater for every individual, so of course having never tried a Dry Shampoo before I thought I'd make the most of the Batiste Dry Shampoo - Paisley 200ml that I got in my Company Beauty Week Goodie Bag.

I normally never have to worry about greasy hair as I have quite dehydrated dry curly hair so I can get away with not washing it for a while, however every couple of times a year I decide to straighten it. (I know shocking.!.!. But I love my hair and I don't really want to fry and damage it more than it already is)
Anyway when I do straighten it, I tend to leave it for as long as I can before I have to wash it again, so I thought why not try dry shampoo so that I don't look like I just combed my hair with hot wings.

Please excuse the grainy photo!

Firstly I must commend it on its gorgeous smell. It's a lovely sweet floral scent, which I really like and is absolutely gorgeous. Also the designs on the bottles are just so pretty to have on your dressing table (or wherever) Luckily the instruction are pretty clear on the bottle (with images) so even a wally like me can understand. Application was fine, I massaged it in, combed it through and it didn't leave any white residue but I still felt really odd.

To be honest I don't think I'm ever going to really be a Dry Shampoo Girl because I just felt weird.  I didn't feel that fresh feeling in my hair. And honestly I felt as though it sucked the life out of my hair. My hair looked matt/dull and that's a look you never really want to go for. I didn't think it created volume in my hair, not that it would've mattered if it did.
I tired it on mum mom who has straight hair and it looked fine and she really loved it so I'm certain she will use this to its full potential.

I'm sure that for many of you, this is like a sacred holy grail product that's fallen from the heavens but it just wasn't for me.

Don't knock it till you've tried it! You can get smaller cans to test if you really like it prices range from size at:
Superdrug: Batiste £1.50 - £4.99
Boots:  Batiste (no mini size) £2.99 - £4.99
