I think my life can be separated in two periods. Life before dry shampoo, and life after. You see my hair is a royal pain in the arse. It gets greasy but reacts to being washed everyday by drying out and breaking off. Plus when it is short I have to blow dry and straighten it every time I wash it lest I look like I tumbled out of the 80’s. Sexy no? So I apply copious amounts of dry shampoo instead which allows me to get away with washing every 2 or 3 days thus saving me and my hair from a lot of heart ache.
I’m a Batiste Brunette disciple and normally go through 1 or two cans a month. There are only two things wrong with it. Firstly the cans tend to run out pretty quickly and secondly the aerosol delivery is neither particularly travel friendly or eco friendly. So I got suckered into buying the LUSH alternative. You get 115g for £6.50 which I suspect will last be several life times. I mean really, I’ve been using this for about a month and it looks brand new. The main ingredient is cornflower surprisingly (why did I buy it then, I have cornflower in my kitchen?)but it does have a lovely citrus fragrance to it which makes it feel less like I’m baking on my head.
I will cut to the chase. Yes this works. Pretty damn well actually. It absorbs all the oiliness brilliantly and even in my very dark hair doesn’t leave any white patches. But I still don’t like it. It’s the delivery method. You either shake the bottle over your roots or onto your hands then apply it to your hair. Either way it’s a complete mess. I end up covered in it! I have to use it before I get dressed otherwise my clothes look like they’ve been in a fight with a baker. It takes ages to evenly distribute it through my hair.
I’m sorry to say but for everyday ease of use I’m a little bit addicted to the aerosol can of Batiste. I just don’t have time to faff about with this bottle! It’s a great idea in principle and the product itself is good. I’m just too cackhanded to master it L
