I am new to dry shampoos as I prefer freshly washed hair. I never understood why people like second day hair, because my hair is just unsalvageable after the first day for whatever reason. Since my hair is so long, daily wash and drying is just very inconvenient now and blow drying every day has damaged my hair immensely even with good treatments and heat protectants.
So, I decided to try dry shampoo to skip a day. Batiste and Dove dry shampoos were highly recommended by #bbloggers on twitter, so I finally got hold of Batiste one for dark hair at Marshalls for $5.99. At Marshalls (American discount store)? I know I was surprised too, but hey I am not complaining about saving $3.
Anyways, I am pleasantly surprised with the result. It makes my hair look like it was recently washed instantly and stays that way all day. And it gives significant volume too, which was a cherry on top of it. I also like that I don't see any white residues on my hair, which is great as I could see how dry shampoo can leave white residue (who wants that?).
The only complaint is that my hair feels so gritty afterwards that I really don't like touching it. But I know that some people like the textured hair. If you are one of them, then I think you would love Batiste Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair. It is totally worth the hype. Next stop for me is Dove Dry Shampoo.
