When everyone was buying and ordering Bioderma from oversea, I decided to sit around and wait for the brand to be brought in to Malaysia. I always believe somebody or some company would be following the hype. So when Batiste Dry Shampoo was a “hot” product, I did the same. I sit and wait. Guess what? A few months down the road and a company brought the brand in!
I’m so glad I waited because the cheapest I’ve seen from online store is around RM35 per can and I bought it straight from Aeon Big Alamanda Putrajaya for just RM24.90. Good things come to those who wait eh? There are a few supermarket that carry Batiste Dry Shampoo. You can get it from Village Grocer, Jaya Grocer, Presto Grocer (the few I know) and if all the location is out of your reach like my case, just go to Aeon Big. I went to a standalone Aeon Big but they don’t carry Batiste so I figure I might get it easier from an Aeon Big located in a mall. So I drove to Aeon Big Alamanda Putrajaya and found it.
There are eight scents available to choose from. I saw all seven scents except for the scent Tropical. I must have missed it. But anyway seven scents is more than enough 😀 . Out of the seven scents, I went for Blush. Blush is a floral and flirty scent. You know me an floral scented stuff. We are inseparable.
Nothing to shout about on the can. It is a typical aerosol can similar to hair spray. One thing to note is that the powder substance will accumulate on the spray nozzle as time goes by.
Batiste Dry Shampoo is designed as a quick and convenient way to get soft, clean and fresh smelling hair minus the shampoo gel and water. This is great to be used in between hair wash because you know some people don’t wash their hair everyday. That’s not all why Batiste is well-loved all around. With the formula it has, it can revitalize greasy, dull and lifeless hair, fix fly-away hair by thickening it and adds texture and volume for styling.
If you’re a newbie to Batiste Dry Shampoo, there is a small trick on making it to work. I remember I used it wrongly for the first time and my hair is greasier than before. After lots of trial, I finally got it right. Basically you just need to section your hair, SHAKE THE CAN VIGOROUSLY before spraying (very important), hold the can a hand away and spray on the roots along the section line. But I wanted my hair to look just like I had a hair wash so I’d spray on top of the head slightly as well. Now, massage through with your fingers. The trick here is to shake the can like a mad woman before using. If you did not mix the content well, you will get an even more greasier hair. Bear in mind the content contain powdery substance, which I assume is to absorb all the oil and add volume to the hair so massage until all the powder is gone. You will end up with a pair of powdery hand thereafter.
Here is the Before and After 😀 . Hair feels clean, flowy, easy to style and smells good too. One thing I regretted is not getting the Original scent first. Blush smells pretty strong. I can smell it even after a few hours. I normally used it in the morning before I left for work. My scalp can get a little bit greasy eventhough I’ve washed my hair the night before so Batiste Dry Shampoo solved my oily scalp problem. It is something that has been bothering me for a very long time.
Have you jump onto Batiste bandwagon yet? I’m so glad I did because I have greasy hair the next day after hair wash and this quick fix solved my problem. If you’ve tried Batiste, which is your favourite scent?
