Batiste Dry Shampoo 'Hint of Color' Medium and Brunette | Review


It's been a while, about a week and a half. I've been through quite a bit of emotionally taxing events and consequently I took a short hiatus from blogging. I didn't want to, I just didn't have the energy and ability to really get myself writing. 

During my little hiatus, I did get really into some dry shampoos. I haven't been able to find, in all my years, a dry shampoos that has really worked on my hair! I wash my hair daily, since it gets oily very quickly. Sometimes when I do use a dry shampoo it makes my scalp feel dirty. Dry Shampoos also tend to be a little more white/grey and they can leave sort of white residue against my dark brown hair. 

Recently, I found the brand Batiste that makes Dry shampoos and I absolutely love them! I picked up one that was slightly coloured for medium brown hair to see if it would cancel out the white/grey effect that other dry shampoos tend to leave.

I'm absolutely inlove with the Hint of Color: Medium and Brunette dry shampoo from Batiste. It absorbs the oil in my hair without leaving a white residue. The spray bottle makes it easy to apply on the desired area(s). Even though the bit of colouring is great, there were initials mishaps where I coloured the top half of my forehead a nice shade of brown. You definitely have to be a lot more careful with this product while spraying it around your hairline - but the resulting effects are worth it! I have quite oily roots, and this lasts for about a 10 hour day - until my roots starts to show oil again.

I also want to state that when you wash your hair, the colour definitely comes out and so the water will turn a murky shade of brown.

I don't really care about the packaging since it's just a shampoo, but its perfectly functional in it's spray can. I'm glad they indicate that there is a "hint of color" by making the packaging a brown swirl. It keeps me from grabbing it instead of my other white coloured shampoos when I need to use those instead.

Batiste is making me start to love Dry Shampoos as they can be some of the biggest beauty savers out there. You can use them to absorb oil when you're running too late to hop in for a shower, but also to add a bit of volume and texture to your hair.
What other uses are there for Dry Shampoo?

This retails at about 10$ either CAD or USD, in Canada it can be found at Brunet drugstores and in the USA this can be found at Ulta stores.
If you have neither of these stores around you, you can always grab it from Amazon.

What do you ladies think? Have you ever used a Batiste Dry Shampoo?

  1. I'm really not a fan of the normal Batiste dry shampoo - I'd even go as far to say as I hate it, however as a fellow brunette this coloured one sounds ideal. I like how you say it doesn't coat the hair in white powder!!!! i will definitely give it a try and see if I can be converted! xxx

    1. Finding a good dry shampoo is really hard! I'm going to try their non-tinted dry shampoo soon but the tinted one is really great for short term oil absorption and adding some texture!
