For as long as I can remember Batiste has always had my heart. You can see a previous review of the cherry addition here. I adore the different scents and the funky designs on the tins. But something has always niggled at me, I wouldn't say it was an annoyance as such. Since I have such brightly coloured hair Batiste would always leave that typical white cast on my hair. I know they do a red version but I preferred to buy the large cans as it's better value for money.
A very good friend of mine (who also has a blog - go check out Christine here) has been raving about this since forever. So I decided it was about time I tried it to see what all the fuss is about.
What www.boots.com says:
Didn’t hear the alarm? Running late? Hair got the greasies? No probs. This Aussie Mega Instant Miracle Dry Shampoo you’re now clutching is your saviour! No shower required. Just a burst of Mega Instant and a bit of brush-out brings instant, just-washed Aussie-ness and fragrance to your hair. Now if only you hadn’t put two mismatching shoes on. It contains Jojoba Seed Extract that was used for centuries by the indigenous Australians as it was believed to naturally condition hair.
First thing I noticed about this shampoo was that it's wet. Considering I've only ever really used Batiste which is a white powder, this was really strange to me. As it's a completely clear spray it eliminates the white cast on the hair that you can get from other dry shampoos. It comes with a fresh, clean scent that isn't overbearing.
Before use give the can a good shake, then just spray into your roots, massage well and brush out.
Don't you hate those days when you have freshly washed hair and you're trying to style it but it doesn't want to cooperate? This dry shampoo is perfect for that. A little spritz on your roots and you hair becomes more manageable. It's also great for combating excess oil, exactly like it says it will. Great for those days when you're in a hurry and don't have time for a full wash and blow dry.
It comes in both a 65ml size which is a perfect trial size to see if you like it. It's also great for keeping in your bag without taking up too much space. If you're after something to keep on your dressing table, Boots do a 180ml size for £4.99, which is often on the 3 for £10 offer, which is really great value!
I think I might just be a convert, sorry Batiste. You served me well for a number of years but I honestly prefer my Aussie counterpart.
65ml / £2.29
