Dry Shampoo: Dare to Compare Review

Unknown | 12:32 AM | |

I was given the opportunity to test out a new dry shampoo and compare it to the leading brand out there. This dry shampoo is called "Batiste". This dry shampoo is formulated to let you put off washing your hair for a day or two and when you have become time-deprived and washing becomes a luxury you can't afford. The Batiste dry shampoo is quick and convenient way to get soft, clean and fresh-smelling hair. Just spray, massage in and brush it out. There is no water required. 

The benefits from using Batiste are:
  • Greasy, dull, lifeless hair becomes revitalized
  • Hair becomes thicker, adds volume to thin, fly-away hair
  • Adds texture and body for an easy style solution
  • Leaves your hair feeling clean and smelling amazing
  • It's quick and convenient to use wherever you may be
As for the review, I was given on bottle of the Batiste and a bottle of Tresemme Dry Shampoo. My task was to try out the Tresemme first then the Batiste after. My instructions were to allow my hair to become dirty, about 2 to 3 days, depending on your hair and then use the dry shampoo. So... I waited about 2 days without washing my hair and then put the Tresemme dry shampoo to the test.

First off, I didn't like the smell. It was over powering and the room stunk for a while. When using the product on my hair, my hair felt heavy. If felt like there was a lot of weight added to my hair. I thought that maybe because my hair was dyed not that long before I tried the product that maybe that had something to do with it. But, then again, who knows. 

After following the directions on the bottle, I sprayed, massaged and then combed the dry shampoo through. Honestly, this stuff sucked... I waited a couple minutes after spraying to let the stuff marinate and then I figured I'd give it one last comb until I really needed it. I needed to do more then just comb. More like scrub the heck out of my head. I noticed that after I started combing, my hair became knotted and the dry shampoo was becoming flaky. You ever tried combing your hair after you put hairspray in and it turns white, well, that's how the Tresemme dry shampoo turned out. I wasn't going to wait till the next day to wash my hair so I ended up washing the same day.

After washing my hair I had waited another 2 days for my hair to get "dirty" and tried out the Batiste dry shampoo.

I followed the directions on the Batiste dry shampoo. The instructions were the same as the Tresemme. Spray, massage, and then combed. WOW! You could definitely feel and smell a difference. I love the floral smell from the Batiste and it was very light. It was almost like spraying air on my hair. There was no weight, my hair felt clean and didn't flake after combing. It felt like I had just shampooed my hair. And it was easy to comb though as well. My hair felt great the whole day and I enjoy using the Batiste dry shampoo. This is definitely a great product. Honestly, I would choose Batiste over Tresemme anytime. I don't care how many products Tresemme comes out with, Batiste has won my vote and I am glad to have had the opportunity to try this fabulous product out.

Follow Batiste on:

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. I always use dry shampoo! it’s great for those in between days isn’t it? I find it helps when putting my hair up too, gives it a bit more texture. I usually get Fudge or Tigi from Hairtrade as that is the cheapest place you can get it at the moment x

    1. Honestly, I didn't know what dry shampoo was at first. I thought that it was a powder you add water to and then add to your hair, lol. Now that I know what it is, I enjoy using it. I'll check those brands out and see how they work on my hair. Which one works best, Fudge or Tigi?

  2. I have yet to find a dry shampoo that I like, one that actually seems to clean my hair. I'm willing to try Batiste - I had the same experience with Tresemme. Thanks for sharing.
