There are a wide variety of different types available, so hopefully this might be useful to anyone who hasn't tried Batiste before and is overwhelmed by all the different cans on the shelf!
L to R: Blush, Original, Tropical, Nude, Diva, Gold Shimmer, Brunette.
I get the same result volume-wise from Blush, Original and Tropical - the difference is just in the scent. Blush is quite floral, the Original is quite fresh and the Tropical I can only describe as smelling like summer holidays.
I will confess, I haven't tried the Gold Shimmer one myself, for obvious reasons, i.e. I have really dark hair, and I think it would look a bit odd on me. It has a fine gold shimmer and I think it would suit a festival or clubbing environment more than heading for the office, which is when I usually use dry shampoo!
Here are my favourites:
L to R: Nude, Diva and Brunette
Nude - this is an aerosol-free dry shampoo, basically how it works is that you shake out the powder directly onto your hair and then rub in and brush through as with the spray versions. This is great for anyone who doesn't like to use aerosols, or if you want a completely unscented product. I like this because you can use the nozzle to be a lot more precise about where you apply the product than you can with the spray version. Often if I've got my hair tied up, I only want to apply dry shampoo to the very front sections.
Diva - this is the one that I found the least 'powdery' out of all the varieties. I can spray on quite a lot of this without getting the grey-haired look so long as I brush through properly. It is very strongly-scented, which I don't mind because I like the smell, but if you didn't then that could be a problem.
Brunette - I've reviewed this one before on my blog here, and I still really like it. Although the colour is a bit strange, so long as it is brushed through properly, I'm left with no grey bits, and I love the smell of this one too.
Which is your favourite Batiste? Or do you use another brand of dry shampoo?
