My Experience with Batiste Light and Blonde Hint of Color Dry Shampoo:
I have dry hair with an oily scalp. Generally, they have a will of their own. With the combination of Livon and Schwarzkopf Color Freeze spray conditioner (reviewed earlier), I try to get some semblance out of them.
This was my first dry shampoo. Why did I pick up “A hint of colour – Light and Blonde?” Well, honestly because the regular one was sold out and since I have golden streaks in my hair, I thought why not give this a shot instead.
Honestly, first up, I didn’t quite like it too much, which may well be because I wasn’t using it correctly. I was barely spraying any because I was too scared of using “yet another” chemical on my scalp, which was anyway struggling with hair fall. Well, if you don’t use the product right, you can’t get the desired results, right?
So, I gathered enough courage and started using it more liberally. My hair is very fine and the scalp gets really oily by day 2-3, sometimes, even earlier in this humid weather of Mumbai. This dry shampoo works very well. You spray it on your scalp and the roots of your hair, and then rub it in. The product disappears, leaving non-greasy hair behind.
A couple of things to note here:
- There is a strong fragrance. It does not bother me but you have to take that into account. The smell dissipates fairly quickly.
- Post application and rubbing off, the hair instantly loses its greasiness. It is so fantastic!
- However, the texture of the hair post using this is not the same as that post having a head bath. Post head bath, my hair feels softer and lighter. Whereas, post application of this dry shampoo, my hair definitely feels a bit….crunchy!! It kind of builds a bit of volume to the hair. This may or may not be liked by all. Personally, I am okay with it.
- The most important aspect – the color tint of the spray. The spray is definitely yellow tinted since it’s for light and blonde hair. However, post rubbing, the color just dissipates. There is no tint, color, anything left behind. So, if someone is thinking of using it to cover their grey roots with a gold tint, it’s not gonna work. Honestly, I don’t quite comprehend the reason for doing a tinted version since the color anyways dissipates.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Batiste Light and Blonde Hint of Color Dry Shampoo:
- Functional packaging; however, not ideal for travel. The normal bottle is too big to carry.
- Strong fresh fragrance.
- Absorbs oil instantly, leaving the hair fresh.
- Gives volume to the hair.
- Functional nozzle.
- Leaves no residue on hair.
- Does not weigh hair down.
- No need to wash off – well, that the whole logic, right?
Cons of Batiste Light and Blonde Hint of Color Dry Shampoo:
- The color tint is rendered ineffective post rubbing off the product, so the company’s claim of “helps blend in root re-growth of colored, tinted or bleached hair” is not really true.
- The effect lasts for just that day.
It’s definitely a good dry shampoo, but there is no need to opt for the “Light and Blonde” variant. You might as well go with the transparent normal option. However, if you don’t get the normal one, you can totally take this without worrying about it staining your hair golden or something! Dry shampoo is a real game changer, especially for girls like us who have long hair for whom finding time to wash and dry the hair is such a pain. Having said that, I would not recommend it to be used on a daily basis.
