Batiste Dry Shampoo Review

I was sent two samples of Batiste Dry Shampoo by Farley and Co. a while back in Tropical and Original and I thought I'd share with you my thoughts on them.

First off let's talk about packaging.  Nothing special.  It comes in an aerosol canister with bright colors.  If I were to see this on the shelves at the drug store I'd be hesitant to pick it up as it just looks cheap to me.  Almost like something I'd see in a dollar store.  I prefer simple packaging in terms of lettering and color.

As for the spray itself holy cow is it ever strong!  Be careful when pressing it down as it is a very powerful spray.  I felt as though I was wasting the product very quickly!  After spraying it on my hair it did leave a little grayish almost greenish color on my hair which I did not like at all.  But when rubbed into the hair the color does go away.  So be sure to rub it in and not just spray it on there!  I think if you have black or dark hair like myself you will notice the weird color.

In terms of smell I preferred the tropical scent over the original scent.  Tropical seems to have a coconut like smell which is really nice.  I don't like the smell of Original as it reminds me of a household cleaner.  I felt like I was spraying disinfectant spray into my hair everytime I used original.  So if you're going to choose a scent stick with the Tropical!

All in all the product does work well.  It soaked up most of the oils in my hair and it did give me some volume as well.  In terms of cleanliness my hair did feel really clean at first but by the end of the day I was oily all over again.  I probably would buy this again unless I come across another dry shampoo that is better.  I've only tried 1 other brand of dry shampoo and wasn't a fan of it.  So I think I'll stick to this one for now! If you know of any other brands feel free to drop me a comment!

Have you tried the Batiste dry shampoo?  If so, how do you like it?
