Greasy Hair Rescuer: Batiste Dry Shampoo (Tropical Flavor) Review

by xin on April 11, 2011

Dry shampoo is something that i have been trying to find yet have never come across a good one, till a friend pick up some Batiste shampoo for me from Boots, unfortunately unavailable in Malaysia.

batiste dry shampoo tropical

It comes in a couple of flavors and I picked a tropical flavor in travel size.

I keep this in the office for emergency use, eg when I have somewhere to go after work and my hair usually gets greasy by the evening even though I wash my hair in the morning.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical Instructions

Shake the can vigorously before use, then hold it like 20-30cm from hair and spray. Leave it for few minutes to settle in before massage it through and brush it off.

So how does Batiste Dry Shampoo work?

The special formula penetrates the hair shaft to absorb oil and product build-up, leaving hair looking clean and feeling fantastic. All without a single drop of water.

Now, let’s see how amazing it is!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Before

By 7pm, my front hair gets REALLY greasy and you can see how the strands are stuck together.

Using Batiste Dry Shampoo

It’s a bit tricky to spray it directly to the front hair because you might be choked by the strong aerosol.

So what I usually do is, spraying it on the middle part then use my fingers to scrunch the front hair and the sprayed hair. This is basically to mix the hair.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical After

Wait for a few minutes, brush it off with fingers and hair brush.

And look fresh again! It can help to create more volume if you spray more because it can create an illusion if ‘fluffiness’. Easy to use and convenient to bring around. LOVE!

Price: £1.52/50ml, £2.35.150ml.

Availability: Boots pharmacies, Ulta

I believe this would really work and it was proven on photos! I have a confession to make, did you know that I was busy on a college project back then and it was almost 24 hours of thesis and wasn’t able to go back home and take a shower and i used Johnson’s baby powder on my scalp area and a bit on hair and it worked! 🙂

i have J&J powder as emergency also! but it gets sticky when I accidentally wet my hair while styling 😛

on oily hair days I just tie my hair up, or like what Nikki does, dab a bit of Johnson’s baby powder and rub it in. But I also notice if the powdered part kena water, it’ll get really hard and flaky bits start to fall off >_<

wonder if Batiste does that to you?

i got the prob with powder! but i am fine with the Batiste 😀 no flour on my head!

Wow! It works! I have fine hair and an oily scalp too so I wash everyday,however my hair is fresh until the next morning. It must be such a hassle to wash your hair in the morning and for it to get greasy by 7:00pm….I am glad you found something to help with that.


prettybeautiful April 11, 2011 at 1:26 pm

aw at least your hair will last till the next morning! i have to wash my hair 2x a day and sometimes still use this. my hair is already oily when i wake up the next morning.

I just found out something. I just washed my hair last evening, and I didn’t want to wash it again this morning. The top of my hair and fringe was looking greasy and my scalp was showing and I didn’t have baby powder in the house. Then I noticed I had a Johnson powder palette in white powder, left unused, so I used an ELF kabuki brush and brush/swirl it on my hair. After a few blow dries and woohoo! It worked! And it made my hair looked fuller too =)

genius! using a brush seems like a better idea. Now, who knows loose powder will work as good 😉 I actually like how the powder makes my hair looks fuller 😀

I have never used a dry shampoo as I have dry hair, but this looks so interesting. Would be excellent for travel when you can’t wash your hair all the time as I do.

I gave this a miss due to the spray. I find it difficult to use. The Klorane one I use has a spray nozzle and so I can still spray into my palm and rub on. Anyway, can’t stand breathing too much of these dry shampoo over the years… *cough cough*
