i never used it, i don't know nothing about it, they was giving samples at shopping centre, doesn't means i like to use it, but i dont know how does it work? does it have any affect on the hair? for just leaving the chemicals in your hair without washing it. is it good and i am wrong.
Chemicals shmemicals! Spray it on your roots (lightly) and you'll never look back. Times I've been going out after work and I just don't have time to wash my hair. For just one day/night it's a must have. Makes your hair look thicker too.
I wear my hair up a lot and find freshly washed hair a bit useless for this, so wash less and use batiste instead. I really like it, although I have the brown tinted one at the moment which stains so I wouldn't recommend.
It's really cut down getting ready time, and it makes me feel a bit glam and French, which has got to be a good thing
It does build up though I find, so I usually need at least two shampoos when I wash my hair.
Most dry shampoos have rice starch or corn starch as the active ingredient. Worth a try if you don't like the scent of commercial dry shampoos (very little goes a long way, and a quick blast with a hairdryer helps to get rid of the residue). Have wondered whether the brown Maizena meant for gravy would work for brunettes
I love it! I hate so I don't wash my hair every day but it's got greasier as I've got older, so this is the perfect solution. It does smell a bit strong, but there are a few to choose from now and it's not that bad. YY to it making your hair feel thicker too.
Is there really a brunette Batiste? I didn't know that! I use the normal one and make sure I brush it out like mad to stop me looking (more) grey. A few years ago I had a mad moment and bought some Bumble and Bumble brunette dry shampoo that cost about £20 . It ended up everywhere! Batiste is so much better.
It's amazing! The original one is much better in blonde hair though. If you have dark hair you need the coloured ones or it looks daft. That said if you do have blonde hair you can just use baby powder it has the same effect. My technique for both is the spray it in - brush it out then use a dry flannel to rub the roots a bit so it doesn't look dull. If you have dry or colour treated hair or you straighten etc it's great - less you wash your hair the better condition you can keep it in
I like the tropical one. I still wash my hair daily but its great for freshening my fringe later in the day or on holiday when you dont want to wash your hair until the evening. The travel size ones are great
Must try this. Since DD1 started school this month I'm finding it impossible to get everyone out of the house and me showered and hair dried before 8am. So I sort myself out when I get back from drop off. My hair is quite fine and needs washing every day so doesn't look great at morning drop off
