Every magazine I have picked up this week is telling me how to get Festival Ready, and telling me that I need to buy some dry shampoo and I don't think it has to just be for festivals or camping as I have never been and I use it all the time!
My faves are Batiste and Label.M. but the Batiste major advantage is that it is cheap, comes in lots of different colours and scents and mini versions, and is easy to pick up in your local Boots or Superdrug, the downside is that a lot of the versions leave brunettes with a white powder on their hair which then needs some extreme rubbing and brushing to get rid of (fine for blondes though).
Directions for use
1. Shake can nice & thoroughly
2. Hold can approx 30cm from hair, spray lightly
3. Massage into your hair with fingertips for even coverage
4. Leave a few minutes
5. Brush it out – preferably with a bristle brush
Batiste Silver Shimmer
Packaging - cute in the usual batiste style, aerosol style spray as with other brands which is also easy to use and direct
Colour - silver and shimmery funnily enough!
Volume - Not as much as the usual Batiste shampoos
Overall - I like the idea of this but it's more of a novelty item to me, this one really would be much better at festivals or for clubs.
Packaging - a turn away from the usual cutesy Batiste packaging which I quite like actually as it's more functional and it's actually in recyclable packaging. The nozzle makes things much easier for brunettes to avoid the white hair look.
Scent The formula is fragrance free and perfect for sensitive skin/scalp.
Volume Ooodles of volume. This is brilliant.
This is their first eco-friendly dry shampoo ideal for sensitive hair as it is a hypoallergenic, 100% natural, fragrance free formulation and contains no volatile organic compounds. It's such a cool idea and its still a low cost item at Cost £3.49 for 50g.
Packaging - Blue version of the standard can, I really like this colour
Colour - The usual white dustiness, this can be alleviated by spraying while your hair is turned upside down or using the old Lollipop26 trick of applying before bed so when you wake up your night time head tossing has made the powder disappear.
Scent - Love the scent, like freshly washed clothes and fresh hair - this is definitely my favourite out of the fragranced line. I used to use Boho but I like this a lot better.
Volume - As usual masses of volume once the initial dustiness is worked into the hair. I love my batiste bouffants.
