Everybody has that life saver product which they know they can always trust and will forever be buying no matter what else comes on the market, for me that product is Batiste Dry Shampoo. This is my essential hair care item and I always like to keep a few bottles in just in case. Dry shampoo is a powder often in aerosol form that once applied to the hair absorbs excess oils, helping to revitalise hair in between washes leaving it feeling soft, clean and smelling amazing. This product works in a matter of minutes, you simply spray it into the roots, massage in and give hair a quick brush through, it's also super versatile with different products assisting with volume, colour and damage.
If you head into Boots or Superdrug you will see tons of different brands of dry shampoo rainging from 95p, the cheap own brand versions which have never worked for me, to £21 for the more premium products, which I daren't try in fear of my bank account! Although I have tried and tested many different dry shampoos, including So, Superdrug and Pantene, Batiste is the best by far and starting from just £1.99 it is an absolute steal.
As I have just recently cut off 10inches of my hair (you can read about that here) I am experimenting with lots of new styles, I always add dry shampoo after applying heat to my hair to remove any stickiness caused from the products in my hair (e.g. heat protectant) it also adds a nice tousled and messy touch to curls leaving a more natural, beachy wave look.
My favourite thing about Batiste is the wide range of dry shampoos they have on offer. The 50ml bottles are perfect for popping in your bag for an on the go touch up, and I always pack one of these when I am heading on holiday. The smaller bottles come in 4 different fragrances my favourite being Cherry and are most useful if you are heading camping!
The traditional 200ml bottles come in the widest range of scents and styles. The 'revitalise it' range is the basic dry shampoo an is available in 11 different fragrances, from original and fresh to floral and oriental. The 'oomph it' range consists of the XXL volume dry shampoo and plumping powder, these are perfect if you suffer from flat hair and are looking to add a bit of volume, I always spray it onto my roots before tying my hair up into a ponytail or bun to create a softer look.
