More dry shampoo? Yes...there will always be dry shampoo!


This is just a tiny little can of Batiste, the travel size I believe, that I got for a couple of pounds while I was in London. It is so tiny that it lasted a grand total of 3 uses, so I'm positive I'm never going to buy a dry shampoo of this size again.


As with all dry shampoos that I choose to use, this comes with a spray nozzle. I am not deft enough to use them in full-on powdered form, so that's just not going to happen.


Now, for any of you that have read the reviews on Batiste, they're all true. Their original formula does indeed leave a white cast, but a very mild one. The closer to your head you hold the can as you spray, the more pronounced it will be. They do make multiple fornulas which correspond to different hair colours, and the dry shampoo for those simply contains different coloured pigments in order to ensure that it melds more seamlessly with your hair.

As for the smell on this, I'm really not a fan. It's not even unpleasant, it's just very neutral and doesn't mask the smell of hair that you would be trying to mask if your head is greasy (yes, let's be a little gross about it). Where effectiveness is concerned, it does a good job for a day. It soaks up enough oil to ensure you're good to go, but you will have to wash your hair that night or the morning after to avoid feeling disgusting. It does provide a little volume as well, but nothing amazing. 

It does get the job done, but not as well as some of the higher end dry shampoos (e.g. Percy & Reed, Sephora), however, considering the price point, you can't really complain. It's definitely a very decent product and I would purchase it again, just not in the original formula.

  1. I actually don't mind this too much, Arpita. I was upset that I didn't pack the Sephora dry shampoo you gave me for my travels but was happy to find this ...for the interim...but then again I haven't tried the Sephora version yet. Can't wait to compare the two now. Btw, how are you?!! Can't wait to catch up with you soon!

    1. I do enjoy this product as well, but I've been spoiled by the higher end stuff that just works incredibly, I think. Nevertheless, for the price, this is a fantastic! You will definitely understand when you try Sephora's. In the mean time, you don't get them here, but Priceline has Garnier and Dove's dry shampoos which are meant to be infinitely better than Garnier. I haven't had an opportunity to try them out, but you should definitely do so!

      I'm doing great! Can't wait for you to get back so we can catch up! How's your trip going?

  2. Just got back yesterday but am heading out again in a few days. Lots of travelling for me this month so I will be needing dry hair shampoo. I think I am going to really be converted to this stuff. Thanks for introducing me to it. I can't think of a better product to travel with. My skin and hair always suffer when I travel.

    1. Welcome back and have a good next trip! I knew you'd love it as much as I do! Travelling is truly the most horrible for both skin and hair. I've actually obsessively been watching YouTube videos for in-flight pampering routines. Issues much?
