For all your beauty advice…
I’ve been on the dry shampoo bandwagon lately; a search to find the best product that will clean my hair without me having to actually wash it. Time has become so important to most of us these days, and sometimes I just don’t have the luxury of spending 30 minutes, or more, on styling my hair. (Yes, it can take me that long. Once a stylist, always a stylist) I figured it was time to embrace the dry shampoo craze. I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect, no water needed, cleansing product.
In my quest, I’ve gone as far as using a home recipe that consisted of just cornstarch, to spending countless dollars on products that: 1. Don’t work. 2. Leave my dark brown hair looking gray. 3. Are only ok…and that’s not acceptable. I thought I had found the best dry shampoo in Ojon, but even though it worked, it still had its drawbacks, the main one being price…I’ll just say, it’s pretty painful on the wallet.
Then, I was introduced to Batiste. Originally only available in the UK, Batiste made its debut in the U.S. in March. My instinct tells me, this is going to be big. Batiste makes the same claims all the other dry shampoo products make. The only difference is, Batiste actually lives up to those claims. Batiste comes in two great scents: Original and Blush. Original gives your hair a light, fresh scent, and Blush is a little more girly with some pretty florals mixed together for a nice scent.
Batiste is very easy to use. You spray it on the roots of your hair and leave it on for a few minutes. Massage the product into your scalp and then brush through your hair. A natural bristle brush will work the best, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry, just use what you have and you’ll still get great results. When I first used it, I noticed the ever-present white powder left behind, but was pleasantly surprised to see that once I brushed the product through my hair, that disappeared. Bottom line, my hair didn’t look white/gray, and it actually felt clean, saving me the time of having to go through the daily cleansing, conditioning, styling routine. Impressive!
Batiste is a good multitasking product because it can be used for a pick-me-up after a long day, it can absorb sweat and oil after a workout, it can revive your ‘do before a night out, and it can be used as a finishing product when you are done styling your hair. Just spray a little on the roots of your hair in the crown of your head for some added volume. It’s also perfect for that change of season that’s just around the corner. How many times has it been so cold when you’ve gotten up in the morning, and the thought of getting your hair wet makes you miserable? Just keep some Batiste on hand and winter mornings won’t seem so bad.
So where can you find this amazing product? It’s available at Ulta.com, ULTA, Harmon, Duane Reade, drugstore.com to name a few, but I’m hoping to see it all over the place soon! Another great thing about Batiste? There will be no sticker shock when you make a purchase. It comes in two sizes, 5.05 oz. and 1.6 oz, and it retails for $7.99 and $3.99. Check out batistedryshampoo.com for more details.
