If the YouTube community say yes. I’m influence. Despite how cute and adorable each bottle are personalize. I’m in love by the concept it has. I guess you guys know about this and yes I will be reviewing the famous Dry Shampoo ever in the market now. It is Batiste and you know what? It is now officially available in Malaysia! Makes it more convenient and great is that its available official online through Health Hub. So I am very excited that I got to try all 7 variants that they offer. Including the colored ones! So there will be lots of picture here and in depth explanation of each variant. Excited? Let’s get it on!
What is Dry Shampoo?
In a nutshell dry shampoo usually comes in an "aerosol can" spray bottle like this one. It spray out this kind of fine dry powder to help soak up those dirt and excess oil leaving your hair just like after washing. Most dry shampoo has fragrance in it so it also leave your hair smell good. It’s perfect for a quick on the go step if you don’t have time to wash your hair alternately.
You might be wondering why I would want a dry shampoo when I am wearing hijab. Actually people who wear hijab need this! It is a must have product for all girls out there whether you are always wearing something on your head or not. Haha. I don’t know about you but I find it difficult to wash my hair every day. The time consume especially when you have long hair. Phew! Talk about those blow drying and towel dry session! It gave me muscle! Also there is an info telling me that you are not advisable to wash your hair every day. The natural oil of your hair is going to help moisturise your hair naturally. But sometime when the weather get humid especially in Malaysia. That greasy feeling. Just annoying! My hair feels itchy and uncomfortable. Hate it!
When talk about dry shampoo, Batiste is one of the most recommend brand out there! Don’t believe me? Try Google Dry Shampoo. The first thing you will see is Batiste Dry Shampoo range. There are so many type out there but right now Health Hub is carrying 7 most love variants from their collection. Here I got from left to right: Wild, Blush, Cherry, Original, Light & Blonde, Medium & Brunette, XXL Volume. The first 4 on the left has different scent. The other two which is the Blonde & Brunette series has hint of color and the last one which is XXL Volume has a volumizing effect for your hair.
How to use Dry Shampoo?
This is my way of doing it, I usually will comb my hair first, then I will lift up section of my hair from the bottom. I will lightly spray it to the roots. Then I just use my had to massage it in. Lastly, just comb it in place. Bamb! I just took a shower in a few seconds!
. . . . . . . . . .
So here are all of the Batiste Dry Shampoo. I will explain each scent of the variants and let you know a bit more of each of them. First of all the scented variants.
Wild - Sassy & Daring
Uuu sassy! Reminds me of grav3yardgirl. Haha! Has a sweet and rich scent to it. Have an oriental like mandarin orange scent to it. If I am not mistaken.
Blush - Floral & Flirty
Make me feel super girly. Has a floral sweet fresh dewy and a little musky scent. Remind me of going into Lovely Lace store. Haha.
Cherry - Fruity & Cheeky
Love this one! Have a sweet cherry candy scent. Sweet but fresh.
Original - Clean & Classic
Has a fresh linen scent. May sound weird but I love fresh linen scent! A little citrus y scent with hint of lemon. Very fresh and nothing sweet.
Now for the grey capped Batiste. This series focus more on colour and effect. If you are looking for a non over powering dry shampoo with different effect. Try this range!
Light & Blonde - a hint of colour
Probally not for me. haha. Beause it is made for blonde people. Fine. You go have more fun then Just Kidding! This dry shampoo has a hint of yellow in it. Has a light fresh scent to it.
Medium & Brunette - a hint of color
Love this! Ya lah.. I always want a hint of brunette to my hair. Since I cannot dye my hair. This is a great product to give me just a little hint of chocolate colour to your hair. My hair is pretty black so it dies not really change the whole colour to my hair. The scent is similar to the blonde one.
XXL Volume - dry shampoo
This is perfect for that flat hair day situation! My hair is quite thick, so a little goes a long way for this. I find that the other dry shampo also gives volume but this one gives more. Has a similar scent to the blonde and brunette ones. Lightly spray this on the root and lightly tease your hair. There you go, a volume effect hair! Great for creating those flip fringe style or bun hair style.
Recommendation & Overall thoughts. This is a great product to have in your beauty products must have list. Whenever you are in a hurry and your hair feeling greasy. This is a great product to help out. I would not recommend you to use it every day and please don’t switch this method to your normal hair washing routine. If you keep on layering this (keep on spaying it for days and days. not cool man!), It will dry up your hair and leave white residue to your hair (For the non-colored ones) . Spray this at least 15 cm away from your hair. This is not an alternative to your regular washing. This does not help to remove the products (hair gel/hair styling products, dirt) It only helps to soak up the excess oil and greasy feeling on your hair instanly. Good to be use in between when you have wash your hair. It does leave my hair fresh and I have no problem on the days when I feel my hair is greasy and uncomfortable when wearing hijab. Also for the price tag, I find it is super affordable. Not overpriced. I love how it gives me different scent to choose from. i love good smelling hair! The smell last the whole day too! Also this makes a good decoration in your room. Haha! Must have!
