For about a year, I’ve sworn by this Bumble and Bumble powder whenever I need to soak up oil and add volume. It was my #1 dry shampoo even though, technically, it’s not marketed as a dry shamp. Hashtag you’re missing out here, Bumble. The only thing I wish I could change about this magical powder is it’s dispensory mode. I prefer a spray powder for all over coverage while you have to plop this stuff on in a particular place and rub it in. Which, at the end of the day, isn’t the worst thing in the world because the powder has actual magical powders but if I could get any more first world, I’d request this in powder spray form.
Welp. Popsugar sent me their Summer must-have box and in it was a travel bottle of Batiste dry spray shampoo. I hoped that it would rock my world but with a drawer full of sample beauty products my expectations were low. One morning, I was running exceptionally late and remembered the newest addition to my drawer of misfit travel sized products. I was already in a mood and didn’t want to deal with having to strategically dump powder on my head. To the drawer of misfit travel sized products I go for that new spray. And then my entire life changed. Shake, spray, rub in, go. No residue, no smell, no residue, no color, NO RESIDUE. I kept touching my hair throughout the day just to make sure. It was like I had washed my hair that morning. And for those of you who hate washing your hair as much as I do you know how glorious this feeling is. The brilliance of it all. And it’s been sitting at every freaking drugstore I’ve ever been to. For years. In front of my face. But I assumed because it was inexpensive it was cheap. Uh, no. Big mistake. Huge. I went on Amazon that night and bought 4 full sized bottles in different flavors and two in the travel size just in case Batiste decided to stop making them overnight which is entirely possible. Have you forgotten the John Frieda Beach Blonde fiasco? Thankfully, he’s seen the light.
So, am I a Batiste convert? Eh, I dunno. I still love my Bumble and Bumble to pieces and Bastiste doesn’t really give me the volume that I crave and get from Bumble. HOWEVER, it is the perfect dry shampoo for daily use.
