Love It, Great for Color-Treated Hair

My hair is bright blue, and I like to keep it that way. But, as many of you know, the more you wash candy-colored hair the more it fades. This stuff is great! It really does work: my hair is fine, straight, and oily by the end of day 2. I put it in on the morning of day 3 and it’s like I just stepped out of the salon.First of all, I followed a previous reviewer’s EXCELLENT instructions:1. spray through roots while slightly lifting and parting the hair, let it sit in hair for 3-5 minutes2. rake fingers thru hair blending it in from roots to tip3. take a bristle brush and comb thru to continue blending any that is leftTo which I will add some of my own tips:4. Always start out with much less than you think you need. You can always add more later.5. It will only work once, maybe twice. Then you really will need to wash your hair.6. The smell is nice (if a tiny bit chemical, at least is isn’t repulsively floral or baby powder) but strong. Best to do it at least an hour before you go out, give the smell a little time to fade.7. Does not mix well with other products. If you intend to use shine or voluminizor, they don’t seem to work well with the dry shampoo. I use very few products on my hair and that seems to be the trick to making this stuff work well.I haven’t tried any other dry shampoo products yet but I have one in the wings and I will be comparing them once I do. However, I suspect I will stay true to this one because of the smell if nothing else.

Perfect! Works better than described!

In high school, I swam competitively and showered (and washed my hair) daily. At age 16, this is fine, but as you age (and become more busy) it’s impossible to wash and dry and straighten (or style) long hair every day.In college, I began shampooing every other day, and wore a ponytail on the days I didn’t shampoo – BLAH! Batiste is great – you shake the can HARD, spray lightly and evenly on the part in your hair and rub into your scalp, then brush out. I will then part my hair again (about 4 times total) all along the top of my head and spray evenly, rub with fingers, and then brush out. The spray absorbs most oil and even adds some body to the roots! It even works well after you sweat at the gym (I recommend lightly and coolly blow-drying your roots, then using Batiste to touch up). No, Batiste is not exactly the same as a real shampoo – you won’t get the same results, but 75% is better than the 0 I was getting before!Now, I only have to shampoo every third day, instead of every other day like when I started using Batiste. Most people don’t know, but shampooing is a self-defeating premise – the more you shampoo, the quicker your roots become greasy. After a month of using Batiste (for the days in between shampooing), I need less product than I used to, and only shampoo every third day.I’ve tried baby powder on my roots before – it just makes brown or black hair look gray! The only draw back is the scent is a little strong, but my boyfriend claims it smells almost as good as a fresh shampoo. Batiste is money well spent on the 6+ hours I now have every week!

It’s ok…

The Batiste Blossom smells good but somewhat messy. I didn’t know it was white powder so was surprised to see my very dark hair covered in white powder, though it did brush out. Didn’t do much for my scalp which is what really needs freshening. Expensive for what you get. I found the Weave Organic Root Stimulator hair freshener that eliminates odor and freshens hair, oil free, 4 oz at $4.99 at a beauty supply store that caters to African-American clientele. It’s non-aerosol. I spray it lightly in my hair and in my hands that I rub through my scalp. It dries pretty quickly on it’s own; or can blow dry. It works well but use a light tough; otherwise your hair will be soaking wet. Bumble and Bumble’s hair powder is AWFUL and very very expensive — do not buy!P.S. the new Suave dry shampoo works pretty good but use sparingly otherwise will get that gunky feeling on your hair (5/6/2011)

The best dry shampoo

This dry shampoo is the best dry shampoo that I have every tried. It makes my fine hair look thicker and super clean. I tried many others and always go back to Batiste.

Elnora Elmira, MI


I tried another much cheaper product (Tresemme brand) thinking I would get the same results.WRONG!After using Tresemme, which made my hair even MORE greasy and oily after application, I tried this dry shampoo again.I LOVE IT!It is such a huge difference.I can easily skip a day of shampooing.I have not tried two days, but I may build up to it.Using a dry shampoo takes some getting used to, but I am so glad I can buy this brand from Amazon!

Eileen Leola, PA

how did it take me so long to find this stuff

I used to wash my hair every other day. but the that second day, I would have greasy gross hair and would have to wear it up in a bun. I now wash my hair every 3-4 days and my hair looks better than that 2nd greasy hair day before I discovered this amazing stuff! I can now wear my hair down all the time!! I LOVE THIS STUFF and im stocking up! PS I spray it in my hair/bangs the day after I washed my hair. So I spray at night before bed and again in the morning, everyday (except the day I washed my hair). I got the tropical scent and I love it. I currently have dark hair and it does make my hair white/gray for a few seconds after I spray but I just brush it and it’s gone. Not even an issue. It dissappears quick.

I really wanted to like this product…

I really wanted to like this product… I used some when my hair got slightly greasy/oily just before i went out for the day, rubbed it in, and combe it through but it ended up making my hair extreamly greasy…I should have just not used it at all.. doesn’t do what it claims.

Jeannine Halifax, NC

No complaints

I actually havent used it yet. But i smelled it. it smells fine. kind of powdery. I bought the original one. Mine came with a mail-in rebate that lets me try it for FREE. 🙂 I bought this for my wig to reduce the shine. I’ll edit later to say the results, but I have seen demos on youtube that say it works.

Chelsey Kulm, ND

Works pretty good!

Hairdressers are always telling me not to wash and dry my hair so much. I say back to them that my scalp gets itchy and a bit greasy after two days. They say buy dry shampoo. It works pretty well. Does come out in a white powder so you really have to mix it around or comb it into your hair. In a pinch, it does the trick and smells pretty good. It will give you one day more. But I’m still going to wash my hair every couple days. Can’t help it.

Karen Somerset, MI

love love love

One of the best dry shampoos. Cheap! Works great at combating greasy non washed hair. I use it on my hair the days I don’t bathe.

Susan Bath Springs, TN

Great results, decent smell, works fast

Really impressed. Simple to use. Totally gets rid of any oily looking hair near the scalp.I have long blonde hair with decent body. I wash it every three days. This helps make it great for that third day. Even makes updos and pony day better. Better than Suave, Rockaholic and Bed Head.

Bobby Yarmouth, IA

A true bargain

I have to say, the smell that bothers others didn’t bother me at all. It’s not unpleasant, and does a good job of freshening up hair after being around smokers or other elements that would require a hair washing.This product is much cheaper than anything else I’ve found. I picked it up at a local beauty supply place and it has worked perfectly for me. I have thick hair that normally only lasts 36 hours before it MUST be washed – this product helps me spread out hair washings, which is much healthier for my hair.The only time I had trouble with this product was when I was learning how to use it, and sprayed it on too heavily. Since then I’ve taken it on every trip, and it’s been a lifesaver with this broken foot of mine. I recommend it to everyone.

Marietta Schley, VA

I really like this dry shampoo!!

This dry shampoo works wonders. I like how it smells like flowers and does what it says which is too get rid of the shiny/oily look on your hair. The only thing that could be better is if the results would last longer.

Renee Elkins, WV

Lifesaver for busy/new mamas

New moms… This is the beauty product that will save you time and allow you to feel refresh those days where you don’t get to have a shower! It would also be awesome for camping too. I really like the smell of this one and it does an incredible job soaking up the oil. It also gives me a little bit of volume too. I definitely recommend this product over any dry shampoos on the market!

Bethany Shepherdsville, KY

Great product for inbetween washes

I have moderately oily hair, and my bangs especially get oily between washes. A few sprays of this perks my hair right back up when I feel that my hair is a little oily but doesn’t necessarily need a wash just yet. It also gives my roots just a little bit of volume, which I like. Others have complained about the smell but I like it!

Celia Bluffton, IN

Hair so good

Just received this dry hair shampoo and love it and would recommend this to anyone who needs such a product, it makes your hair feel like you just washed it and does not mess up your style

Gwendolyn Spencer, IA

The best dry shampoo!

Sometimes I shower every other day, and on my “off” days my hair can be a little greasy. I’ve used Treseme dry shampoo and the smell nearly killed me, plus it left my hair feeling grungy and dirty. I tried this one and I’m in LOVE! The smell is light and fresh. It takes the greasy look out of my hair and honestly makes it look like I just showered.The con: it can turn darker hair gray because of the clay (or whatever?) is used in it. But I just kept brushing it through and it got better.Hours later my hair still looks great and doesn’t feel grungy at all! I will definitely be stocking up on this stuff.

Lacy Cheney, KS

great stuff

this is the first dry shampoo i try and it works great for me make my hair fresh and clean and soft very good i order two more bottles

Angeline Clarendon, NY

Great product

Back when I had a nine-to-five job, I had the worst time actually getting up when my alarm went off. The snooze button was my best friend, that is until I actually dragged myself out of bed and saw that I only had ten to fifteen minutes to get ready. I really wish that Batiste Dry Shampoo had been around during those times.Lucky for me, I have a can and it has come in handy! I’ll get a phone call from someone telling me that they are in the area and will be stopping by in a few minutes. It’s nice to be able to get excited about seeing them and not stressing because I don’t have enough time to hop in the shower. All I have to do is run to the bathroom, follow a few easy steps and my hair is presentable. Batiste is great!Disclosure: I received this product for review purposes. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Anne Smiley, TX

From a Floridian

This stuff WORKS. The humidity here is so bad that sometimes I can’t make it through the day without freshening up. This does the trick perfectly.

Angelica Watson, AL

Works fairly well.

I usually have to wash my hair every other day. By the second day my hair is greasy looking and heavy. I don’t use a lot of products or anything in my hair regularly. I used this for the first time yesterday and I was hoping for a little more, but it did the job okay. My hair still felt a little heavy and it didn’t make my hair feel soft like shampooing and conditioning would, but it took that greasy look away. That’s all I can ask for, I suppose. Will buy again!

Allison Fillmore, NY

Good stuff!!

I have long blonde fine hair that gets a little greasy the day after shampooing. This product works better than I thought it would!! Got rid of the greasies all day – and woke up the next morning with non-greasy hair too! Very impressed, especially for the price. Not sure if it would show up gray on darker hair, but that seems to be a complaint. Smells a little weird, but not bad… plus, the smell doesn’t stay longer than a couple mins anyway. Downside: leaves white residue all over my bathroom counter, floor, etc. Use in a well-ventilated area/outside… inconvenient obviously, but I don’t think there’s much the company can do about that. Highly recommended.

Faye West Fulton, NY

Works great, smells great

If you color your hair a product like this is a must. Stop washing your color down the drain. Even using this dry shampoo once per week will save you money in the long run. I also like to use it immediately after a regular shampoo and dry to give my thin straight hair some lift at the root.

Jennie Duncanville, AL


Batiste is hands down the best dry shampoo, but this tropical smell is the bees knees! Smaller than the cans you’d get from Ulta, but larger than the purse size.. This just might be my new favorite scent.

Rene Lohman, MO

The only thing I dislike about this is the fact that it’s not a (much) bigger bottle

The thing with dry shampoos is this: if you’re using it, it’s not going to last a long time. Am I right, people?That’s what I dislike about this. Of course, it’s not really a dislike, since 5.05 oz is the standard size for most hair and beauty products, and that’s that. I just wish I could find more Batiste, anywhere. For some reason it’s very hard to find.I love it. I love the fact that it’s not a citrucy scent, which I absolutely dislike in many other dry shampoos. I love the fact that it’s actually powder, so it actually controls the oilness on my scalp (or, in many cases, the product overlode. Tee-hee). It makes my hair soft and nice.I tried many, many other dry shampoo brands. This one is my favorite, hands down.

Viola Frenchmans Bayou, AR

Works much better than the expensive dry shampoos!

I purchased this based on a top ten product review in a magazine (I can’t remember which one). It worked great. Then I ran out. In a pinch, I purchased another dry shampoo (salon brand) while traveling that was almost 3 times as much as this one. Yikes. The Batiste was far superior! It doesn’t smell as good as some of the others, but it works just as well or better. I definitely recommend.

Ann Southern Pines, NC

Great for Blondes

I feel like I’ve tried more than my fair share of dry shampoos and this one is currently my favorite. I have bangs and feel as if I’m constantly battling the dreaded “stringy” look when they get too oily. I haven’t tried other scents but this is my second bottle of the “Blush”. In the future I’d like to try other scents as this one can come off a little mature smelling. It does have quite a bit of powder and I would imagine it would leave a white cast on darker hair colors but its perfect for me. To reduce your risk of that white cast, I recommend applying it slightly below your part, so that it’s not on the top layer of hair, wait a few minutes, and then brush it out. For the record, I’ve tried Tresemme’, Suave, Bumble & Bumble, Pssst, and Ojon– and none of them work as well as this one.

Vivian Sutton, VT

Lasting power isn’t great

Will only last you for about one day. Lets say you sleep overnight, the next day it WILL look greasy again. However, it does completely make your hair look like you just washed it. I spray it on my roots where it’s oily, and then let it sit for a few minutes and then rub it it well. I have dark hair, so I make sure to rub it in really well since it comes out a light color, but it has a powdery consistency. It doesn’t feel like hair spray or anything.

Blanche Parker, AZ

corse, thin hair responds very well to this stuff! and the smell summery & sweet.

I saw this product on a YouTube how to/style video made by a woman in the UK, and wanted to try it since my hair is colored with a very vibrant pigment and washing it daily fades it. I think I am hooked now. Next day after styling, I used this and it looks fuller, thicker, less oily, and smells great. i have light colored highlights on the top of my head, so any complaints of it being powdery or dusty – is actually an advantage to my thin hair and that effect masks my scalp shining through.I went to my local TJ Maxx and found 2 more cans in different scents- and one of the blonde tinted editions which I have been using on my crown. I would say next to my LUSH R&B; hair moisturizer, this is my favorite hair find in 2 years.

Mai Mercedita, PR

Works wonders

Sometimes you just don’t have time to wash your hair and when the weather is humid like it is in Houston that can be big problems. There’s a certain point where your hair is beyond help, but this works very well for even a quick errand run when my hair feels icky after working out but I haven’t quite had time to shower. It also got me through those turn-around shifts when I worked doubles back to back.
