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.
Gives good volume to hair
Great at removing oil
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.
