I use dry shampoo most days. Like loads of people, I used to stick with Batiste because it is well known, and I like it.
However, I think Batiste is getting a little bit pricey, so I’ve been experimenting with some other brands.
While it doesn’t offer the same level of volumisation as Batiste, it is pretty effective at refreshing day-old hair, which is a Godsend to me because I’m trying to get back to the 3rd-day-wash routine after sadly becoming a daily hair washer.
With a bit of extra effort, the Superdrug Dry Shampoo can be used to create volume, too, but it does take a bit of hairspray, which I was able to avoid when using Batiste.
The other difference is that the scent isn’t as nice as Batiste, but its still pleasant. The texture is actually much nicer, and you don’t get that “waxy” feeling when running your fingers through hair to style it.
Given the very miniscule price difference, I will probably opt for whichever of these is better value for money, taking offers into consideration, in future.
The Superdrug alternative is certainly impressive and a deserving contender.
The best part is that the Chocolate Brownie one is specifically for Brunettes*, so it actually makes your hair look shiny as well as not-greasy 🙂 Bonus!
*When I went to check out at Superdrug, the flame-haired assistant confidently enquired:
“Are you dying your hair red?”
“No,” I replied, baffled. “Why?”
“Its just with you buying Brunette Dry Shampoo. Do you want to go and swap it for Brown?”
Incredulous, I explained that Brunette was the same as Brown.
Turns out she’d always gotten mixed up with Auburn and Brunette.
