I’ve heard great things about Batiste Dry Shampoo that when I needed to buy more after I ran out, I immediately knew I wanted to try this. When I saw they had a special shampoo just for brunettes like me I almost jumped for joy. Yay, to my hair no longer looking like I accidentally dumped baby powder in it. Well, that happiness did not last after the first use. The spray is brown and it does blend into my hair, but the finger I used to spray the shampoo with turned brown as well. The formula for this is also hard to brush into my hair, it made my hair look dull and feel nasty.
I was so disappointed, running my hairs through my hair I would get what looks like dirt all over my hands and my hair felt so stiff and powdery. I think maybe I should not have gotten the brunette spray. I will give this another try, perhaps just the original one, as I don’t want to completely write this brand off.
Have you tried Batiste Dry Shampoo?
I seem to be using dry shampoo more and more these days, as I just can’t seem to get my hair straight. One day it’s limp and oily, the next day full of fly-aways and dryness. I don’t wash my hair everyday to try to preserve it’s life, so sometimes that limp and oiliness makes me look unwashed. That’s where dry shampoo comes in.
Not Your Mother’s is on of my favorite drugstore hair brands. Not only is it inexpensive but cruelty-free as well, they even have recently come out with a line of more natural products that I cannot wait to test out. Considering how much I love using Not Your Mother’s products I decided to try out the dry shampoo.
The Clean Freak Dry shampoo boasts instant results of Absorption of excess oils, No residue and a Matte finish. I can tell you that 2 out 3 of these claims are right. IT does immediately absorb the oil in my hair and leaves it looking I didn’t wash it the day before, The matte finish as well can be claimed as try as my hair is not overly shiny. However it did leave a white residue in my hair after I used it, which I need to immediately brush out so as I don’t look like I am going grey.
Not Your Mother’s dry shampoo also gives a slight volume boost to my hair so that it does not fall limp, this lasts about half the day but I am assuming it’s because I tend to play with my hair more than I should making it fall flat. This is unscented, which I don’t know if I like but at the same time I don’t know what I would like it to smell like considering.
They also have a tapioca dry shampoo that I really want to try out to see how that works. This is only $7.00 which I love because I have seen half this size run for double that with other brands.
So with the drought in California going on I’m trying to save more water and by doing that I am not washing my hair every day which cuts my time by about 10 minutes! What has allowed me to go without washing my everyday is using dry shampoo that way I don’t look like a greasy dirty person (YAY!). I’ve recently saved up some points from Birchbox and I thought what better way to spend my points by buying some new Dry shampoo. I decided to go with Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo because it was the best value and had the highest review rating. First thing I noticed when using the dry shampoo was that I love the smell, it has a small floral smell which doesn’t over power my senses. One thing I was disappointed in was it left a white residue on my hair when sprayed, but this was quickly resolved by a couple of sweeps with my boar bristle brush. I also feel like it doesn’t completely make my hair feel clean like other dry shampoos does, however I’ve noticed that hair looks less oily after I use it.
Overall, I am not sure if I would purchase this again as I feel the need to use more than normal.
