Batiste Dry Shampoo Original

Will you be very gross out if I told you I don't wash my hair every single day?

I probably be really grossed out if someone told me that.
 You are actually the first ones that I'm telling this secret to!!*feels very insecure*

I've read many articles online that to maintain your hair(especially for people with long hair) at tip top condition and don't want dried ends, you shouldn't wash your hair everyday.

I was also told by hair stylists about this too. They also told me I should use the natural oil from my scalp, from my 2nd day hair, to nourish the rest of my hair by combing it through..

But how to??!!

In Singapore there is no way you will feel that it is ok to not wash your hair every single day!
The weather is so hot and humid here. So very often you'll find your scalp feeling oily, dirty, sweaty, and itchy by the end of the day!

A little more than half a year ago, I found my solution~ It may not be the best solution, but at least it makes me feel much better about it.

Although it's not long ago when I got this, but back then, other than expensive brands of dry shampoo that you can find at Sephora, this was the only one I've seen lying around on the shelf of Guardian.

Believe it or not, I had the mentality that if this doesn't work, I'll just continue to wash my hair everyday.
I didn't have high hopes for this product!

Recently, I'm starting to see more and more dry shampoos selling in Singapore!~ Which means I have more variety to choose from.

This only means something. Either they are encouraging people living in Singapore to not wash their hair everyday or there's more and more people not washing their hair everyday.
Demand is higher therefore Supply is higher too!~  I'M NOT ALONE~~

OMG Econs~~

Enough of joking around, let's get serious~

This is what attracted me.

Refreshes hair between washes

I didn't need anything moisturizing or make my hair look less shiny, because I'll probably just tie my hair up and no one can see it!~

I only needed something to make me feel that I'm clean, or more likely my hair~

Product description, on the back of the can,
Batiste Original Dry Shampoo, with a refreshing fragrance, revitalizes greasy dull and lifeless hair between washes. Instantly leaves your hair feeling clean, full of body and smelling beautiful. Quick and convenient to use wherever you are.

For those who don't know, since not all dry shampoo work the same way,
This is a aerosol spray can. Therefore, explains the nozzle.

I feel that this nozzle looks very old school.

You know like those hair sprays our granny or mum uses?
I use to see them around when I was younger, it went missing for a while, and now I see it again!~HAAHAH!

And as you can see, it sprays quite well.
Don't hesitate to hold it further away to get a wider and even distribution~

Oh in case you are wondering what is the white thing it is spraying out.
It is a white powder to take away the shine on your hair

Directions,From the back of the can
SHAKE CAN VIGOURLY BEFORE USE AND IN-BETWEEN SPRAYS. Hold can approximately 30cm from hair and spray lightly giving it even coverage. Use finger-tips to massage through hair and leave for a few moments. Brush product out, preferably using a natural bristle brush

My Thoughts,
From my experience

Since this is the only product I've used so far, I can't really compare it with other products, but I can share what I like and don't like about this product.

I think you might want to hold the can far enough, if not there will be like white blotches on your hair, making look really weird.
And also, you might want to lightly spray it instead of  spamming the product on your hair. Because if you don't spread the product out well, it actually foams like white powder on your hair which looks like dandruff.

When I just started using this product, I didn't know how to really use it, so I spammed and sprayed really close, and it turns out really bad and I hated it initially.
But after I read the instructions and followed, I totally had a change in thoughts with this product

What I like about this product, usually my 2nd day hair looks a little shiny and flat. It looks like as if my hair is sticking on to my head. I'm rather pleased that this product help to make my hair look less flat without any teasing and look less shiny.
It actually makes it look rather matte.
There is this scent in the product, I don't know how to describe it, baby powder with a little floral scent?
that's my best guess.

It is not something I'll feel turn off by. It actually doesn't really affect me, because half the time I don't really smell the scent of it at all.
But when I do, I know that I've sprayed way too much product on my hair.And my roots will leave a very powdery feeling, which I don't like!~~

What I don't like about this product, Although it makes your hair matte, it doesn't stay matte throughout the day, so you have to spray it every now and then. I've tried spraying more on my scalp, at the start of the day,  and I had this powdery scalp feeling for the entire day, and this didn't keep my roots matte for a longer period of time.

As mentioned above, I've seen more varieties in Singapore lately!~ I can't wait to try them out once I finish this bottle~
Some people is saying that they get a few uses out of it only, I must really be lucky, I still have about 1/3 bottle to go, after such a long period of time~

I would definitely recommend this to people who wants a cheaper alternative and don't want to wash their hair every day.

This retails for around SGD$6.90 at our local Guardian and Watsons Stores.
