Batiste Dry Shampoo

Batiste Dry Shampoo
Batiste Dry Shampoo / Tropical / $6

For several years, I was a devotee of Psssst! dry shampoo. It took me a long time to find and settle on it, sifting through failures from Pantene and Dove, the lackluster one from Not Your Mother’s, and through an incredibly-awesome-but-usually-out-of-my-budget KMS Hair Play. Psssst! was out of stock when I went to replenish, so I decided to try Batiste. If you caught my August Favorites, you saw that it earned a place as one of them.

Application

That pressure, though – depressing the nozzle of a Batiste bottle releases a quick, forceful burst of product where you want it to go. No wimpy, aimless mists here – Batiste’s fine, powdery spray is targeted. Batiste is on a mission. This is awesome if you’re like me and tend to need to concentrate dry shampoo in certain areas – for instance, towards the back of my crown is the spot that usually needs the first, and repeat, attention. Being able to direct product there means less product goes to waste – and it means that areas that don’t need help aren’t risking unnecessary build-up.

Suave Refresh and Revive
First things first – I received Suave Refresh and Revive Dry Shampoo courtesy of Influenster. I don’t get compensation for writing this post. Anyone can join and qualify for Voxboxes – you receive free product provided you agree to review it.

Suave Refresh and Revive isn’t new to me. I’ve used it before in my quest for a holy grail dry shampoo, but it has been repackaged since I used it last. Honestly, I’m disappointed that I received it instead of one of the other Unilever dry shampoo offerings. My preference would be to try something new to me, but that’s just how things shook out.

Application

The amount of product dispensed when the button atop Suave Refresh and Revive Dry Shampoo is pressed was not up-to-par. It under-performed in comparison with Psssst!, even less so compared to Batiste, and the least compared to KMS Hair Play. Due to this, application took longer than application of the other products did.

Fragrance

Fresh? No. Sweet. Why is everything so sweet?! Although it does certainly help mask any odors your hair may have picked up, this particular dry shampoo is VERY sweet, and VERY strong! The fragrance is not what I would describe as a fresh scent. Did not care for how it smelled, all in all.

The Should You Wash Your Hair Chart

So I’m reposting this blog post from Influenster because it has an infographic that cracked me up. Yes, it feels like an ad – but the Should You Wash Your Hair infographic/flow chart is still funny.

Hope you get a laugh, as I did. As for me, I’m not head over heels for Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak dry shampoo, but I don’t hate it (the marketing made my eye twitch more than any dissatisfaction with the product itself). PSSSST! still reigns supreme for me.
