I have been using the Not Your Mother's dry shampoo for a while now, but when Batiste started being carried a few weeks ago, I decided to try it too. There is a huge hype about this brand, and it is pretty cheap compared to some. So I used both in the same week and decided to review them both at the same time.
Not Your Mother's
-Big bottle, cheap price. For around $6 it's a huge bottle for dry shampoo and lasts much longer than most brands I have tried.
-Good scent. The scent definitely isn't perfume, but it doesn't smell like powder either.
-Dissolves and combs out well. If you spray too much, it's an easy fix to get the excess out.
-Leaves a small residue. I feel like all dry shampoos do this to some effect. While this brand isn't terrible, it can make your roots a little hard to work with
-Because of the residue, it's hard to use this shampoo for more than one day in a row, because your hair ends up feeling a little stiff.
Overall Opinion: Great product for the size and price, but works best if you're a every other day hair washer.
-Great scent. This product smells so great, and it comes in two scents to choose from. Doesn't smell like a dry shampoo at all!
-Dissolves really well. If you spray too much, no problem! It works right in with your fingers or a brush.
-Great for multiple day use. This doesn't make your hair stiff at all. It remains extremely workable and soft.
-The aerosol is hard core. The first time I used it, I felt like a fire hydrant was blasting my head. Definitely a strong spray, and took me by surprise.
-Smaller bottle. The price for this bottle is still pretty good, but it costs more than Not Your Mothers and the bottle is smaller.
Overall Opinion: I loved this product, and even though it costs more for a smaller bottle, I think this will extend the life of my unwashed hair much longer and allow my hair to grow longer. I can't wait to try out the other scent!
