If there is one hair product I couldn't live without (apart from shampoo) its Batiste Dry Shampoo. I use it almost every single day either between washes or just to add a bit more volume. Over the years the product have got bigger and better but with quite a large range of what is essentially the same product which one is the best one for you?
Although I haven't tried all the products from the range I have tried all the ones I would want to and often have a few bottle of my favourite ones at home.
This is the most basic in the range, it does exactly what it should do with no added extras. However it doesn't have the nicest smell but is one you can live with! It does add that white residue which you need to work in to your hair.
Fresh, Blush, Boho, Brit, Diva and Tropical
I can't remember what each on of these actually smells of but they are essentially the same as the original but just with different packaging and different scent. I would say my favourite is probably the Tropical or the Fresh but they are all quite nice. I buy the Brit one the most as I love the packaging and I think goes really well with my room.
This is for those of you that try to be environmentally friendly, it doesn't come in an aerosol and is fragrance free! The packaging is recyclable, a little goes a long way and unlike with the aerosol version it is almost invisible as the powder is so finely milled. The nozzle applicator and squeezable bottle also make it easy to apply and isn't messy! Its also great if you are going away as you can transfer it into a smaller bottle and won't over heat (which happened to me a few weeks ago and a Batiste bottle basically exploded in my boyfriends car!) Nude also adds great volume however I think it is much harder to find!
Coloured- Dark Brown, Light Brown and Blonde
As you can imagine I have only tried the Dark brown version of the coloured Batiste Dry shampoo's, I found that although (as you can see in image below) it is quite dark you do still need to rub it in a little as it can be a little grey. I personally think that you can feel this product in your hair a little more then the others meaning that you can't use it too many days in a row without having quite a bit of build up. Its a shame that they don't also provide on for red heads especially as I think blondes don't need it quite as much since the original doesn't show up too much.
I believe this is the newest addition to the range and probably the one I am most excited about! I find that all the products in the range add volume but this one adds even more, perfect for my fine hair. I think this is a cross somewhere between a dry shampoo and a back-comb in a bottle, but I do think that it might not work quite as well on very thick hair. It isn't a coloured product so does leave the white marks behind but I find its not quite as obvious as the original and can easily be worked in with minimal effort.
I have never tried this product and I don't think I want to, the idea of having shimmery hair doesn't really appeal to me. Have you tried it do you like it?
Overall Batiste are my favourite dry shampoo's over all the other which I have tried. My favourite and the one I am most likely to buy is the XXL although I would happily use any of them (apart from the shimmer.) Surprisingly my least favourite is the Brunette tinted one, I can really feel the product in my hair which also starts to weigh my hair down a little.
