Batiste Dry Shampoo Review

batiste dry shampoo Review

My love affair with dry shampoo began a few years ago at an ungodly early time –  somewhere in the ballpark of 5am. I woke up and decided that there was no way I would be able to muster the energy to get up and wash my hair, despite it being moderately oily at the roots. At that moment in time I had two choices; bust out some dry shampoo I had stashed away, or french braid my oily mop and hope no one noticed my extra shiny locks. I decided to go with option #1 and I have been hooked on dry shampoo ever since.

I’ve tried all kinds of dry shampoos, from the high end stuff to drugstore brands, and I still haven’t been able to find a product that’s just perfect for me. Using dry shampoo can sometimes leave white patches if you aren’t careful to comb out the excess product and as all my fellow dark-haired peeps probably know, this happens pretty often. Enter, Batiste Dry Shampoo with a hint of “colour” (how British!) for deep and dark brown hair. I was immediately enamored with the idea of this product, since the color is supposed to hide that white residue that is oh so evident on dark hair.

Pros:
Gives good volume to hair
Great at removing oil
Inexpensive

Cons:
There is only one GIANT con. A con so giant that it completely outweighs all the positives. Since the hint of color isn’t permanent, it rubs off rather quickly. And by rather quickly I mean that if you run your fingers through your hair while you have this product on, you will be covered in a gross black powder substance. While this stuff does fix my white residue problem, it makes my hands and especially my finger nails completely black any time I use it. The white powder was a problem, but I feel like this is an even bigger nuisance to deal with.

 

Overall I rate the Batiste Dry Shampoo with a hint of color for deep and dark brown hair (what a mouth full…) a two star. Extra sadface.
