What Is Dry Shampoo?
Dry shampoo is a dry product that absorbs oil and refreshes your hair between normal shampoo washes without the use of water. It can come in either an aerosol format, like Batiste dry shampoos, or in a powder format.
How Do Dry Shampoos Work?
Dry shampoos absorb the excess oil, grease and sweat in your hair without the use of water. This allows you to increase the time between your normal shampoo washes and thus extend the life of your hair style. This is especially beneficial if you have just had an in-salon blow dry you want to have last longer than one day.
At the heart of Batiste dry shampoo ingredients is an innovative starch based ‘no water needed’ formulation. This formulation adapts to your hair’s needs and targets excess oil, grease and sweat, helping to eliminate it at the roots.
Batiste dry shampoo boosts your hair’s body, giving dull, lifeless hair the makeover it deserves without water. Just shake the can, spray, massage in and style!
No wonder Batiste is consider one of the top dry shampoo brands!
Does Batiste Dry Shampoo Work?
In answer to the question of ‘Does Batiste Dry Shampoo work?’ my answer is a definite YES!
This is based on my own personal experiences of using various Batiste dry shampoos and from reading numerous overwhelmingly positive Batiste dry shampoo reviews Australia wide. My answer is also confirmed by Batiste dry shampoo Priceline sales data.
Priceline sell a range of 1550 different hair care products. In their current top 10 hair care best seller list there are 5 dry shampoo products, 4 of which are Batiste dry shampoos. To further quantify these sales Priceline sell a massive 19,000 dry shampoos a week! That is a lot of dry shampoo Australians are buying!
This to me is a clear indication of the effectiveness of Batiste dry shampoo products and our love for them. A product doesn’t become a best selling dry shampoo unless it works well!
In case you are wondering, the four Batiste dry shampoo products in the Priceline top 10 best selling hair care products list are:
- Batiste Dry Shampoo Original 200ml – 3rd best selling Priceline hair care product
- Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical 200ml – 4th best selling Priceline hair care product
- Batiste Dry Shampoo Blush 200ml – 5th best selling Priceline hair care product &

The Benefits of Dry Shampoo
Based on my own experiences and also from reading numerous dry shampoo Batiste review articles there are many dry shampoo benefits including the following:
Absorbs Excess Oil / Prolongs The Interval Between Hair Washes
The main purpose of dry shampoo is it’s ability to absorb excess natural oils from our hair and give our hair a feeling of freshness even days after we last washed it. This in turn enables us to prolong the interval between actually washing our hair and is one of the most loved effects of dry shampoo.
Without dry shampoo I need to wash my hair every two to three days. Using dry shampoo I can prolong my hair washing to every four to five days.
Dry shampoo is a god send for those people with oily hair! I love the Batiste dry shampoo fresh feel in my hair as opposed to the oily feel!
Use Anywhere, Anytime
You don’t need water to use dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is convenient and portable, especially Batiste mini cans of dry shampoo.
Mini Batiste cans of dry shampoo are perfect for popping into your handbag for refreshing your hair after work before going out at night.
They are also an essential in your gym bag to revive your hair and scalp post gym session to ensure you return to the office with fresh hair and not sweaty, flat hair.
Dry shampoo is perfect for use in hospital too when you are confined to bed and unable to wash your hair or when you are camping or travelling without easy access to showers.
The minis are the best Batiste travel dry shampoo and the cheapest Batiste dry shampoo.

Dry shampoo instantly adds volume to your hair. It is fabulous for people with fine, flat or thinning hair and is a good defence against limp hair due to humid weather. Dry shampoo can be used instead of volumising spray, thus also reducing the number of products you need to use as it volumises your hair and absorbs excess oil.
In addition to adding volume to your hair, a lot of people use dry shampoo for braids because dry shampoo adds texture and grip to your hair. This makes it easier to create various braids and up-do hair styles that simply don’t work properly on silky, just washed hair.
We used dry shampoo on my daughter’s hair in the photo below to add texture and ensure this up-do would stay in place better. We also sprayed the underside of her tiara with dry shampoo to give it better grip.
Batiste dry shampoo scents are amazing! They are the best scented brand of dry shampoos I have come across. In addition to absorbing excess oil and dirt from your hair, Batiste dry shampoos will also remove any unpleasant odours and leave your hair smelling fresh and beautiful.
The determination of the best Batiste dry shampoo scent will obviously vary from individual to individual depending on personal preferences. You will need to decide for yourself which is the best smelling Batiste dry shampoo for you but I have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to decide.
In the comparison table above I have put together a Batiste dry shampoo scents review where I list the various scents included in the Batiste dry shampoo range so you can make your own Batiste dry shampoo best scent selection. Choose a scent similar to your favourite fragrance. That way it won’t clash with your perfume and your guaranteed to love it!
My personal favourite Batiste dry shampoo scent is the Tropical Batiste Dry Shampoo. Another Batiste best scent for me is Batiste Eden.
The best unisex dry shampoo scent and the best dry shampoo for men is the Batiste Original dry shampoo.
Using dry shampoo to achieve hair freshness is a lot quicker than washing your hair, drying your hair and styling your hair. It is also a quick way to achieve greater hair volume and texture.
Dry shampoo is especially a blessing for new mums and mums with toddlers who are time poor with little time to wash their own hair.
Minimises Hair Damage
Using dry shampoo means you wash your hair less often. This also means you dry your hair less often and probably use heated styling tools less often. This results in less potential damage to your hair.
Saves Hair Colour From Fading
Dry shampoo doesn’t fade your colour like washing your hair does. Thus using dry shampoo saves you money from not needing to recolour your hair as often.
Extends The Life Of Your Blow Dry
Apply dry shampoo to the roots of your hair so you don’t need to wash your hair as quickly and your salon blow dry will last longer. This is one of the best dry shampoo effects!
Good For The Environment
You use less water by washing your hair less often and you add fewer hair care chemicals such as shampoo and conditioner down the drain.
How To Use Batiste Dry Shampoo
Batiste dry shampoo is extremely quick and simple to use.
Just shake the can vigorously before use. Separate your hair into sections and then holding the can 30cms away from your hair, spray the dry shampoo into the roots in quick, short sprays.
Leave for a few minutes and then massage through. Brush out any excess residue. For extra body and texture don’t brush it out.
Dry Shampoo Tips And Tricks
- Only apply Batiste dry shampoo to dry hair.
- Don’t spray Batiste dry shampoo too close to your head as this will result in too much product build up and prevent it from being evenly distributed.
- Less is more. Too much dry shampoo can make your hair look dull. You can always apply more dry shampoo as needed.
- Only spray dry shampoo onto the roots of your hair. Slide a finger through your hair to lift a section of it to allow easy access to spray the roots. Repeat in sections moving down from the top of your scalp.
- For extra volume put your hair upside down to spray dry shampoo on the roots.
- Don’t massage dry shampoo through your hair immediately after spraying it on. Leave it for a few minutes to enable it to fully soak up the oil and grease, then massage it through with your fingertips.
- Dry shampoo lengthens the time between hair washes but it doesn’t replace the need to wash your hair with water. Dry shampoo will absorb the excess oil but it doesn’t rid your hair of dirt. I’d recommend using dry shampoo no more than two to three days max in a row. Then it’s definitely time for a wash.
- Spraying a small amount of dry shampoo to your hair’s roots at night before going to bed allows the product to work overnight absorbing any excess oil and sweat. Your hair will look fresher in the morning.
- Spraying your hair with dry shampoo and then rolling it into a bun or twisting it up overnight will give your hair a sexy tousled, beach wave look in the morning.
- If you want a blow dry to last, spray after styling and it will last one to two days longer.
- Don’t stress if you can see some white residue in your hair immediately after spraying. Leave it for a couple of minutes to absorb the excess oil and then brush or comb through any visible residue.
- One of my favourite dry shampoo hacks is to spray a bit of dry shampoo onto the inside of my hair clips and bobby pins to give them a better grip.
- If your hair is like mine and doesn’t hold a curl very well, spray your hair with dry shampoo before curling for a long lasting hold and style. This works amazingly!
