Batiste dry shampoo in Brit and Boho

For the last few years, Batiste dry shampoo has been a near permanent addition to my bathroom shelf. It's great for those in-between days and come summertime, it helps to revive heat induced lanky hair too.

Whilst it's not a substitute for washing my hair, it is good for refreshing and volumising it in between washes. The powder helps to soak up any grease and makes my hair look more presentable. The only downside is that it can leave my hair feeling a little chalky, so I wouldn't recommend using this for more than a day before washing with shampoo.

I was recently sent Brit and Boho, and out of all the different scents, Boho is my favourite one to date. They are both quite sweet, but I'd say Brit is more floral and Boho more fruity.

As I'm not a morning person, I often use this when I wake up then wash my hair in the evening, giving me a much needed extra 20minutes in bed! Overall, I think it's a great product to have handy and I love that in comes in so many different colours and scents.

Are you a fan of dry shampoo? What's your favourite Batiste variant?

  3. I tried dry shampoo once, but that was back in the day when there was only couple different ones and all were white and it did not look great on my then black hair. I really should go and get some for brown hair now and this post has really tempted me to do so even more :)

  4. Whimsical Wolf - Thank you. Tropical was my old favourite but I think Boho is even nicer. For some reason the newer scents are a lot harder to find. Hope you come across it soon though x

    Rachel - Haha I know what you mean, it is pretty much a haircare essential, especially in the summer! x

    Mari - I find if I leave it for a minute after spraying then rub it in, I get the best results. Hope the brown one works better for you x

  5. Oooh i haven't tried any of the new ones. Thanks for the review! My local Superdrug seems to stock millions of colours and smells. I usually grab whatever is cheapest! LOL

  6. alisonds - You're welcome. That's always a good plan :) I tend to stock up when Boots do a 3 for 2 haircare offer. I hope you'll like them x

  7. I love the tropical batiste, but i agree with you it can leave your hair chalky after more than one day!

    this stuff is totally worth it for that extra 20 minutes in bed :)
