Batiste Dry Shampoo - Blush

This week is my first week at university, so unfortunately I only have time for a super quick review. Hopefully once I've settled in and adjusted to my new timetable (and early mornings!) I'll be able to update more regularly. :)

According to Batiste:

'The essence of femininity, Blush is the floral, flirty way to turn heads. A few quick sprays instantly leaves hair feeling clean, fresh and full of body and texture.'

I've been using dry shampoo products for several years now. They are really handy for days where you just haven't got the time to wash your hair, or for festival goers like me. I first starting using dry shampoo on my fringe and roots when I was wearing my dreadlocks to  freshen them up a bit in between washes as they were so very heavy when wet and took forever to dry. Until now I had been using TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo, but I saw the Batiste range in Superdrug at the weekend and opted for something new. I've heard of the Batiste range before, but never tried it myself. I picked up the product Blush for £2.99 for 150ml. You can also buy 50ml for £1.49, which is ideal for travelling.

The instructions are pretty simple. Shake the bottle, hold about 30cm away from your head and spray onto the roots. Massage with fingertips, brush through and style as usual. My hair instantly looked cleaner and softer. Blush has a lovely feminine, slightly floral fragrance which I love. You will need to use it daily for the desired effect. The amount you need will depend on the thickness of your own hair. My hair looked clean and refreshed for the duration of the day.

My main issue with all types of dry shampoo is the white powdery residue it leaves behind on my dark hair. I know that Batiste do a dry shampoo for dark hair, but it was sold out so I went for Blush instead. However, I found that with this product the residue was easy to massage into my hair. This problem should be minimal for those with lighter coloured hair.

One of the main advantages with this particular dry shampoo is the price. It's very cheap. And with a small bottle available, it is perfect for trips away, taking up minimal suitcase space. I would definitely buy again, which probably won't be long since my sister has already started stealing it from my room...

Have you tried dry shampoo products before? What do you think of them?

Disclosure: I bought this product myself.
