A lot of you may know, I love to use dry shampoo. It cuts down on my time that it takes to get ready, I don't use heat on my hair so much, and it's easy. I'm always searching for that perfect one, and try out a lot of new products in between. This time I am comparing a new dry shampoo to my tried and true Batiste!
There are several reasons I always go back to Batiste. It's inexpensive, and available at a lot of different stores. My hair is fine and thin, and definitely needs some reviving on that second day. Some formulas don't really get rid of the oily spots, but Batiste does. It's easy to use, and smells decently good.
There are, however, a few draw backs to this brand too. The biggest one is the chalkiness factor. It sprays in pretty white, and can be hard to disperse at times. The smell can be a bit much in terms of "hanging around". My goal in trying something new this time was to find one that was just a bit lighter, but got the job done.
I wouldn't say that I'm a fan of the Kardashians, but I really don't hate them either. I'm kind of indifferent. But I found pretty good reviews on their dry shampoo. I've never tried any of their products, so I thought I would give it a go.
The price point isn't too bad. It's a little more pricey for the same size as Batiste, and can be a little trickier to get your hands on. I got mine at Ulta. I think these two factors were the major cons for this brand.
This sprayed on pretty easily, just make sure you hold it back about 6 inches from your scalp. Any closer and you'll get a wet look. I don't feel like it takes a ton of the product either. I think the smell is great. That was one of the complaints in the reviews, but I didn't mind it and my husband actually commented without being prompted that this smells better than the Batiste. This is like any other dry shampoo, where you do have to massage it in a bit, but it is no where near as chalky as Batiste. I feel like it did make the ends of my hair a bit more hard to control - almost like a mild frizz. But this is something that I can work around.
Overall, I would definitely be willing to give this another purchase in the future, and would actually like to try the dry conditioner that they have too. I think I'll still use Batiste too, but the non-chalky feel of this brand is such a pro in this category that it's worth a try!
