Product Review: Batiste Dry Shampoo

Read Mabeth's review on this product

I've been searching for dry shampoos for a while now because I think they are a great way to get your hair feeling clean and soft when you don't have time to wash your hair. I was thinking of purchasing dry shampoo at Sephora but I wanted to hold back until I found something that was not as expensive. Mabeth's Makeup did a review on this product and I noticed how much cheaper it was so I wanted to purchase it.

** Important Note: even though dry shampoos refresh your hair in between washes, it's always important to wash your hair on a regular basis because it's good hygiene!! **

Start off with oily/greasy hair.
This is how my hair looks like after 2 days of not washing it.

 Spray the can lightly and evenly throughout the top of your head.
You can even lift your hair up in some areas to get close your roots.

Use your fingertips to massage your scalp until the product is absorbed.
There will be white residue left in your hair so brush your with a hairbrush.

 After brushing your hair through, the dry shampoo should already be absorbed
and your hair should feel clean and soft and oil free!

Before & After

Batiste Dry Shampoo Original - with a refreshing fragrance, revitalizes greasy, dull and lifeless hair between washes. Instantly leaves your hair feeling clean, full of body and smelling beautiful. Quick and convenient to use wherever you are.

WHAT IT IS: It's shampoo in a can! It's a white powder that sprays onto your hair that absorbs the natural oils that build up in your hair over time. It reduces the appearance of dirty, greasy hair without the use of shampoo and water.

AVAILABLE AT: Sally Beauty Supply
PRICE: $6-$9
SIZE: 150ml (5.05 fl.oz)

Inexpensive for a big can. Other dry shampoos come in 3oz cans (or less) selling for $12-$18 at Sephora
It does absorb the oil from your hair
It made my hair look cleaner
Easy to use
Not messy at all
Has a pleasant smell to it
Comes in different scents

If you don't brush your hair after rubbing it in, it will leave a white tint in your hair. So people with dark hair, don't forget to brush!
Even after brushing my hair, it still looked like there was a white residue. It's not so visible in person but on camera it looks obvious.
Hair still felt dirty after use

We all have those days where we want to sleep in or we wake up late knowing we have to be out the door in a few minutes. This product is good to have when you haven't had the time to wash your hair and you need to be somewhere fast.

I also notice that my bangs get oily faster than the rest of my hair does because I touch my bangs a lot when I brush it off my face. The oil from your hands can cause your hair to be oily faster so this product is also nice to carry in your bag for a nice pick-me-up throughout the day.

I wouldn't replace dry shampoo with your regular shampoo and conditioner. I would only use this product if I absolutely needed to.
