I have tried a few dry shampoos, such as Tresame, Pssssst, and a few others, and Batiste is so awesome. If you are a Sally Beauty card member you get a discount too! (you can read about that here) I've only seen the two scents of this, which is original and blush, and I adore the blush scent. I'm not a huge fan of the original, and honestly I can't even tell you what it smells like anymore just because I haven't used it for SO long! The blush isn't the most amazing scent in the world but I don't mind it at all. I do feel like the scent disappears through the day, so it isn't a showstopper for me if I can't get my hands on the blush scent, because I love batiste formulation that much. I have heard that Suave came out with a comparable dry shampoo, so maybe i'll test those waters out when I run out of my current can of batiste.
This dry shampoo is really really great at soaking up oils that are created from 2nd day or 3rd day hair. I don't like to wash my hair everyday because I have dry hair and I don't want to strip the natural oils from it. My hair doesn't get oily though until about the 3rd day. When I spray it on my hair, I spray it about 8 inches or so away (i'm so precise, i know lol) and that seems to be a good distance. I don't want to spray it too close to the scalp because it will only go in one specific spot (literally).
As for weather if it leaves a white mist in your hair, I cannot answer that as I am a blonde. I know that when I am a darker blonde it doesn't, but that doesn't mean it won't show up on black hair. So I am sorry that I cannot speak to that point.
So to sum it up:
- Retail is $7.79
- Original and Blush Scent
- Great at soaking up oil from hair
- Adds some volume
- Great for refreshing hair
- Sprays nicely
Overall, I really really love this product. I have bought probably 3 or 4 cans so far, and it is just so wonderful to have at anytime!
