New Batiste Shimmer Dry Shampoo: Review & Giveaway!

I’ve always had a bit of a love-hate relationship with dry shampoo. While I love the fresh feeling it gives when you first apply it and it’s ability to rectify some serious hair dilemma’s when you sleep through your alarm and don’t have time to wash it… I find by the end of the day it leaves me with an itchy, semi-greasy, powdery feeling scalp.

The latest offering from Batiste however, caught my eye a few weeks ago. They have recently brought out a new line of ‘Shimmer’ dry shampoo and I decided to try out the ‘Silver Shimmer’ version.

Being blonde, the white powdery formula of the original Batiste dry shampoo has never been a great concern, but if you have darker hair it must surely require some serious ‘brushing out’ (what a pfaff!). However, this snazzy new formula knocks the socks off the original in my opinion!

Having tried (and failed miserably) to snap ‘before and after’ pics of the shimmery effect, I decided to show you the difference on my hand. The main difference between these two doesn’t lie in the shimmer (although the new version is definitely bling-tastic!) but in the chalkiness.

Below is the original sprayed on my hand (obviously closer than you would spray on to your scalp, but you’ll see the effect)

and below, the new version… minimal white-ness!

(Note I’m aware there is more product in the 1st photo but I’m sure you can see the difference in consistency of the product ;D)

Overall I’m really impressed with this product and find myself reaching for it over the original formula every time. Definitely worth a try if you have darker hair, or are looking for a lighter alternative to the original, powdery version.
