I have a love-hate relationship with dry shampoos. They are one of the most talked about products in the beauty industry these days. They are a lazy girls’ best friend. Dry shampoos have been around for quite a while now. Though, in India, we still do not have a huge variety to choose from.
If you already do not know the uses of a dry shampoo, you need to get on this thing soon, because you are missing out on something. They are perfect for in between washes. They absorb the oil from hair, give a boost of volume and leave your hair with a nice smell. Dry shampoos come in very handy when you running low on time (which I am most of the days).
I have oily scalp and feel the need to wash my hair every single day. But thanks to Kerastase Specifique Bain Divalent Balancing Shampoo [read my review here] I can manage to go without a hair wash for 2-3 days now. However, I have recently started working out and my hair gets greasier with the sweat. Here comes dry shampoo for the rescue.
I have tried two dry shampoos: one from Batiste and the other one from Oscar Blandi.
I find the Oscar Blandi one doesn’t do anything to my hair. However, the Batiste one does manage to fluff up, add a little volume and refresh my oily-second-day-hair. I section my hair and spritz some of this stuff onto the parting. I leave it on for a minute so that the scalp can absorb it and then either brush it or massage it lightly. I would say that it does leave a white powdery cast onto my hair but with little amount of massaging it goes away.
I am currently on my second bottle of the Batiste Dry Shampoo and I already have another one in stock.
Though I still feel that I haven’t found my Mr. Perfect dry shampoo yet, but I am loving the Batiste Dry Shampoo as a quick fix for the time being. I would probably try out the Loreal Fresh Dust and the B Blunt ones soon.
Price: Batiste- Rs. 1400-1500 approx.
Oscar Blandi – I think it was around Rs. 1800 when i bought it last year.
