Self-esteem Boost in a Bottle

Batiste Dry Shampoo

Hello, everyone! Welcome back! It’s the Spring season and I’m so excited about that!

It’s about time I get another post up for you guys and this time I wanted to talk about one of my HOLY GRAIL products!!! Yes, indeed this product is one of my HOLY GRAIL beauty products, it’s one of the most common things I pull for when I’m in a rush and has been for over 6 years now!

But first let me ask you guys, what makes a “holy grail” product a HOLY GRAIL product for you? Is it how much use you get out of it? Is it how well it worked for you? Is it how much you spent on the product? For me, there are a few things I think about when deciding if this is a holy grail product or a product I just really enjoy.

The top things to make a product qualify as my “Holy Grail” are: How many times I have repurchased the product because it was absolutely necessary I just could not live without it, How much use I get out of the product and If this product is the best of its kind I have tried. (Dry Shampoo, Hairspray, Foundation…).

Today I’m going to be sharing a review on Dry Shampoo by Batiste, I own the Original scent. And have used it for at least 6 years now. It has never let me down yet. You have probably heard me talk about this in some of my posts like Ultimate Gift Guide for New Moms and I am so excited to finally share all the reasons why I love this product.

This product has made it into my HOLY GRAIL of products for a few reasons but mainly because It is the best dry shampoo I have ever used and that is my 100% honest and personal opinion. I have gone through about 15-20 bottles of this product since I started using it years ago and it is such a blessing. It is a decent sized bottle so you get a lot of use out of it. I use to use it 3 times bi-weekly it had lasted me about 2/3 months. Currently, I use it once or twice a month, sometimes three times a month. So I’m not going through as much of it anymore.

Greasy Hair

To me what makes a dry shampoo good is if it makes my hair look and feel cleaner. Dry shampoos are supposed to refresh your hair quickly when you don’t have time to wash your hair with regular shampoo and water. The product works by the Alcohol or Starch in the product soaking up the grease and excess oil making it look cleaner.

Traditionally you can achieve the same results through sprinkling cornstarch on your hair but it does not have the same drying time that the aerosol provides. Besides the basic feature of dry shampoo (cleansing) this product also offers great texturizing features giving your hair more volume and making your hair workable into many different hairstyles.

I have been using Batiste for about 6 years now if not a few longer. It is definitely one of the best dry shampoos I have ever used. Some dry shampoo’s that I have tried have left my hair feeling worse than it did before I used the product leaving my hair heavier and, greasier.

I think Batiste dry shampoo is one of the best of its kind. Using Batiste does not leave a sticky film or residue on your hair so you can still style it and it enables you to really work the product into your roots. It doesn’t make my hair feel any heavier than before it actually feels like it lightens it a bit which really brings out the volume.

The one thing I did notice about this product is that it leaves a little bit of a white colored tinge on your hair and makes the appearance of your roots look white. To avoid that you’re not supposed to apply it on the top layer of your hair and you are supposed to work the product in once you have sprayed a few sections of your hair.

I would suggest lifting up about an inch from the roots when spraying. It smells kind of powdery and fresh, not unpleasant by any means. The original product bottle has a cute simple design in some blue, green, and yellow colors.

This product makes my hair look great and, it looks and feels so much cleaner almost instantly. It gives me amazing amounts of volume where I need it which is great because I have a bunch of weird cowlicks throughout my scalp, a bunch of them being in my crown so Batiste allows me to have the texturization to add a little bit of teasing to make everything even out.

Batiste is so worth it. It works wonders!!! My hair is noticeably cleaner after using this product! It solves your simple everyday problems by being a quick reliable fix to an otherwise time-consuming process. It’s the perfect self-esteem boost in a bottle! I would recommend this to everyone who is in need of a good reliable and, affordable dry shampoo or even someone who is just looking for a bit of texturization in their hair.

I can not wait to try some of the different kinds, Batiste has!

What is everyone’s favorite brand of Dry Shampoo?

Thank you, everyone, so much for reading my post and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and Instagram! Have an awesome week everyone and Welcome to Spring!!!
