Batiste Dry Shampoo Original

batiste-logo

To my misfortune, I was not blessed with the naturally straight, manageable and delightful-looking hair that I have always wanted. So you can imagine that my haircare routine is rather time-consuming and even tedious at times. That is why, whenever possible, I try to extend the time between hair washes. I can normally get away with three days without washing my hair but then it needs some help.

I have come across Batiste quite unintentionally. I had no thoughts about getting any dry shampoo as I have once tried a couple and did not quite like the effect on my hair.

Batiste had recently entered the Bulgarian market; a small marketing campaign was ongoing this June when I found them in Lilly Drogerie in Sofia. I have read and heard impressive reviews for Batiste dry shampoos and was quite amazed to find a satisfying little range of their products on the shelf. I debated for some time which one to choose, in Bulgaria the range includes Original, Blush, Cherry, Fresh, XXL Volume and Medium & Brunette. Finally, I thought to myself the Original one should sure be a good start.

To be honest, I really like this dry shampoo! :)

It comes in a beautifully stripped spray bottle of 200 ml, the price is reasonable for the amount you get, about 6-7 BGN. The scent is pleasant, powdery and fresh at the same time, clean & classic is a very good description.

As I had had unpleasant experience with dry shampoos in the past, I tried to follow strictly the directions for applying the product. So what I do is section my hair, spray from a distance of about 30 cm, wait for a minute and then massage the product into the roots, brush, style and enjoy my revitalized hair! Applying Batiste is quick and it does have the desired effect – my hair feels revived, clean-smelling and with a pleasant texture added in…

The only negative thing I can think of is the formula. Reading the ingredients, I feel like there are too much chemicals that my hair does not necessary need. I understand very well that the effect of the product may not be the same in a different formula. Still, beauty product ingredients are something that concerns me greatly. That is why I use the dry shampoo only on those really needy occasions :)

Ingredients: Butane, Isobutane, Propane, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Аlcohol Denate, Parfume (Fragrance), Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Benzyl Benzoate, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Cetrimonium Chloride

In Bulgaria you can find Batiste in Lilly Drogerie, Elitis and Remedium pharmacies. Online you may buy it from www.enzo.bg (a bit pricy here) or www.asos.com (with free shipping).

Here are some photos of my fourth-day hair with Batiste!

    1. Thanks! :) It is scary that is why I try to limit the times I use my dry shampoo, and hopefully find a less chemical-loaded alternative. Still, it is a very good product for what it is meant for.
