I don’t know about you ladies, but dry shampoo is probably the best invention that has ever swung my way. I praise this ingenius can of modern beauty technology every day I wake up and see my damnable oily roots side-by-side with the clock telling me to leave in 10 minutes. Let’s be honest, nobody has time to wash their hair every second morning before work or college — if you do you are one sassy, organised lady and I envy you. Unfortunately, that’s just not me so enter stage: Batiste dry shampoo! If you haven’t heard of dry shampoo before, prepare to be reborn. If your hair isn’t looking so fresh in between washes all you need to do is give your roots a quick spray where you need it and — voilà — oil-free, clean-looking hair with a little extra volume (bonus!) Now I’ve only tried a few brands of dry shampoo but due to Batiste’s easy availability (it’s sold in most pharmacies, beauty stores and supermarkets) and it’s fair price ($10 for 200ml) I always seem to repurchase. Most recently I’ve picked up the “Cherry” Batiste. It’s a super sweet and fruity fragrance and isn’t overpowering like a lot of dry shampoos I’ve tried. To use it, you spray a small amount of product onto your roots from 30 cm away. Make sure you get into the layers of your hair by lifting sections and spraying under them. Like I said before, be careful with how much you use because a little goes a long way and too much will leave you with powdery, white roots. After you’ve spritzed it through your hair a little bit, get your fingertips and massage it around. Tada! Style it as usual and you’re left with clean hair. Well, not really but I won’t tell if you don’t… Batiste is available from most local supermarkets or pharmacies, or from Priceline for $10.00.
