I received a challenge from Batiste, which was a dare to compare two dry shampoo products to see which one is better and works best for me. Some of you might be wondering, what is dry shampoo? Well dry shampoo is a powdered substance used remove oils, dirt, skin particles, dandruff, environmental pollutants and other contaminates so that you extend the length of a blowout or style or when you don’t have the time or ability to use normal shampoo and water to wash your hair. Some might be wondering why you would use dry shampoo, I like to use it so I dont have to wash my hair daily. Its been proven that over washing your hair daily is bad for it and can dry it out and cause hair color to fade. To preserve your color and maintain moisturized, sleek hair, it is best to wash your hair only 2-3 times per week, so to do just that you can use dry shampoo on the off days to serves as a fantastic option. I also love to keep it on hand to freshen up my hair before going out at night.
I received two different products to compare, the Batiste, Blush Dry Shampoo and the TRESemme, Fresh start Dry Shampoo. When using dry shampoo, you need to shake the bottles very well, hold the bottle about 8 inches away from your hair and spray. Once you had sprayed it over your hair wait a minute or two and then brush it out. Once you have done that you should notice that you hair is nicely refreshed and ready to do again. I did this with both products about 3 days apart. I have to tell you that both did a good job, however the batiste dry shampoo was better in many different categories. I felt that the TRESemme product’s scent was way to over powering and took away from my perfume and lotion smells. In addition the strength that the dry shampoo comes out of the batiste was nicer, I felt that it helped get the product to the roots so that it could get the job done. When you spray the product it offers a nice, whoosh and blows your hair around while applying the product. The Batiste also has a nice light fragrance that you can smell while applying and gives your hair that light smell so it looks and smells clean and refreshed.
Overall I would pick Batiste Dry Shampoo as my Dry Shampoo of choice. If you have not tried dry shampoo you are missing out. This is an awesome product perfect for busy moms, or women. Your teen or tween might also like this in their gym locker for a freshen up.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
