I was told that Jenni 'JWoww' Farley is a fan. While I'm not a reality TV junkie, I won't complain if Batiste Dry Shampoo geves me Jersey Shore-like voluminous hair. It took me a while to try a dry shampoo, since I didn't see the need seeing as the chance that I would let my hair go unwashed is slim to none. However, I've found that dry shampoo is perfect for reviving my end-of-the-day kinda oily hair and giving it an extra clean volume boost. It's great when I need a quick refresher before heading out for an evening. Dry shampoo is pretty much a staple product for me now. I was excited to have the chance to try and review Batiste Dry Shampoo in Original. Batiste is a best selling UK dry shampoo brand that's made it's way across the pond to the U.S.
see here), I tousle vigorously until the white has blended in to my liking.
Just when I was thinking Batiste was the bomb, I looked at the ingredients and wondered if it indeed was a bomb! The first three ingredients are butane, isobutane, and propane, which are aerosol propellants. What that in mind, keep Batiste dry shampoo away from heat, and use in a well ventilated area. Batiste uses rice starch to absorb the oil in your hair. Different brands of dry shampoos seem to use different kinds of starch, however the concept is pretty much the same: starch absorbs the oil that makes your hair look unclean.

Overall, I enjoyed using Batiste Dry Shampoo. The Batiste dry shampoo is great for cleaning up the oil in my end-of-the day hair and giving it a hair-raising boost. I bet it will also come in handy for unseen hair emergencies, camping, and other situations where I just don't have the time or resources to wash. The spray form is quick and really easy to use in a pinch. It tends to be a little less messy than dry shampoos in powder form. (That said, I still do like powder-form shampoos since you can work more in, don't have to worry about chemical inhalants, and can travel with them. For me, it's worth having both spray and powder dry shampoo). I'm happy to have Batiste Dry Shampoo in my collection. It's so convenient and easy to use. I know I'll be reaching for it often. Have you tried Batiste products? Have you tried dry shampoo?
