Batiste Dry Shampoo spray - does it work? And any tips?

For various long-and-boring reasons over the next couple of days I won't be able to wash my hair. It does get oily quite quickly and is fairly fine although I've just had my highlights re-done and I think that helps at the roots.

I've bought a little can of Batiste but I've never used it before and I wondered what, if any, difference it might make - or, being fine, might it make my hair worse?

It's really good just don't go crazy if you've got dark hair as it will Look gray. If u do have dark hair I recommend the one for brown hair

Rub it in well, like you're actually shampooing your hair, and brush it well after that.

It is wonderful stuff. If you are fair or highlighted then the normal stuff is best. I tip my head upside down, spray on the roots, then brush through. Be prepared to dust off your shoulders if you're wearing a dark top as some powder will fall down. Your hair won't look shiny but it will look thicker and if it's long enough to go up it will hold an updo amazingly well.

Yes it works. It's really good, even on my chip pan hair. I can only use it for one day though and then my hair feels minging.

The xxl stuff is amazing. It truly makes your hair 'bigger'!

Sppray it mostly on the roots and then use your fingers to comb it through, don't brush because it can end up sticking to the brush and your hair will look greasy.
Wait for around 10 minutes so the oil absorbs it properly.
Once it's been absorbed you can brush it and just style it as you usually would.
If you use it properly it will make your hair look a lot cleaner and less greasy, but don't put too much on

It's great. I have very fine hair and fine it stops it being so fly away. You need to comb it through as it is really a fine talc and can look white.

Oh excellent, I knew I could rely on the ladies of S and B! My hair is darkish blonde and I've bought the normal spray so hopefully should be fine.

Thank you for the tips - I'm pleased to have a new product to test out!

Another tip is to use it before you go to bed, so it works itself in overnight

I've only recently discovered it and it's brilliant stuff and saves the faff of washing hair every other day.

Shake the can in between sprays, as it separates out otherwise.

I use the brunette version; means I only need to wash it every three days.

Fine blonde hair here and it's fab. the only way I can get two days out of my hair wash. I section and spray the night before and tie it in a pony for bed. It's amazing at adding volume on freshly washed hair. Worth having an itchy head for. Buy a massive can.

Another fan here! Great stuff. Especially love the xxl one, huge amounts of body for practically no effort!

It works but am I the only one who finds it so badly perfumed?

Bloody love this stuff. I recently discovered it and can easily get 3 days (!) out of a hair wash now. I have a thick thatch of individually very fine hair so it goes crazy flyaway after a hairwash but is too greasy on the second day to leave unwashed. Now it looks brilliant and is more manageable on day 2 and 3 and I much prefer its look to hair wash day. Plus as I'm about to give birth to DC3 this will be an absolute godsend as it will save approx 30 mins of faffing with shampoo, styling products and hair dryer every day.

I use it at night too, by morning the whiteness of the powder has gone & so has the grease smile
