Batiste Dry Shampoo has been recommended to me numerous times over the years when I ask friends and even hairdressers which brand I should purchase. Dry shampoo is a must-have product for me, as it’s perfect to use when I have a busy schedule and need a quick hair touch-up. I’ve tried several different brands for dry shampoos over time, and am going to tell you if I believe Batiste Dry Shampoo is worth buying over the others.
Bastiste Dry Shampoo formula is so popular not necessarily because of what it does contain, but more so because of what it doesn’t. Batiste doesn’t include talc in their ingredients, which ensures there will not be any white residue that sometimes occurs upon dry shampoo application. Being talc-free means that anyone with dark hair, such as brunettes like myself, will be able to use this product effectively and enjoy the results without worrying about their hair looking ashy or chalky. Furthermore, talc is known to be harmful for it's containing of asbestos, which could potentially lead to cancer or other respiratory issues when inhaled frequently.
Before I used Batiste, I alternated between Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo and amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. After repeated use, I began to notice how Drybar’s product left a chalky residue and seemed to weigh my hair down. On the other hand, amika’s dry shampoo left my hair feeling refreshed and clean, as it effectively absorbed any oil and added more volume to my hair as well. I wanted a dry shampoo that performed like this, but at a lower price. Because Batiste is a drugstore product, it was the perfect solution, and performs very similarly to amika. Here is one users before and after comparison when using Batiste on their hair:
Speaking of price, here are how the prices of these brands measure up when compared with size:
As you can see, you are getting more product from Batiste for a lower price, for arguably the same or better quality - it's a win-win all around.
Another great aspect about Batiste is that they offer their dry shampoos in several different variations. These include scent, hair color, and style, among other aspects. For example, they sell their standard Original formula, which is marketed as ‘clean & classic’, but also offer Divine Dark, which provides users with a ‘hint of color’ to add to their roots. There is also a Blush formula offered, which contains a ‘floral & flirty’ scent. I personally really enjoy their wide variety of options, as they allow consumers to choose which one will best suit their hair needs.
Because Batiste Dry Shampoo works so effectively and is available at a much lower price than other alternatives, I am very happy with the overall results I have achieved with this product. I would not rely on dry shampoo as an alternative to washing your hair, but would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a reliable dry shampoo product. I honestly cannot say I have any cons about Batiste Dry Shampoo, and therefore encourage everyone to try it out. If you want a demonstration on how to best use it, check out the video below!
