As with many things that I had time to do on a daily basis pre kids, washing my hair on a daily basis went be the wayside too. I kept with my daily routined when I just had my daughter, but once the twins came along…forget it! I was lucky if I got out of my pajama’s have the time. It has been a few years now that I have been washing my hair every 2 – 3 days, so my hair is pretty used to it. I think initially when I started it would look a little greasy the next day, although I have never really had a problem with greasiness. I think if anything it just starts to look drab. Now by the second day is when it starts to look a little lack luster.
I have just found that I have less and less time. I really don’t enjoy the whole process of blow drying my hair and find that I would much rather be doing other things. Is that wrong? Also, more than anything there is just not enough time in the day. I wake up at 5:00 am to get a jumpstart on work before the kids wake up. Once the kids wake up, it is really non-stop the entire day. Between taking care of the kids and squeezing work in the day just flies by. The last think I feel like doing when the kids go to bed is getting in the shower.
Freshen Hair Without Washing
I have heard a lot about these dry shampoo’s lately and was very excited to try out a product that would freshen hair without washing it. I was very excited when I was offered an opportunity through Tomoson the chance to review Batiste dry shampoo. Batiste originated in London before coming to the U.S. It is made with rice starch as opposed to the cornstarch used in other dry shampoos. It has a really strong propellant, but is very light on the hair. It eliminates oily roots and adds new life to dull, lifeless hair between washings.
I was sent a bottle of Batiste in the Blush scent, which smells wonderful. I was also sent a small bottle of Tresemme’s dry shampoo in order to do a comparison of the two. I was to try the product on days 2, 3, or 4 after washing my hair. So, I tried the Tresemme dry shampoo first on day 3 after my last hair wash. Below are before and after pictures with Tresemme.
After the use of the Tresemme product I definitely had some lift, which I was excited about. Not having ever used a product like this I had no clue as to what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to get the lift I got. However, as the day wore on, my hair did go back to looking like the before picture. So, was happy with the initial look but did not like that it did not last throughout the day.
So, again I washed my hair and waited until day 3 to try out the Batiste. Below are my before and after pictures with Batiste.
Dry Shampoo Adds Volume
Once I used Batiste I realized how wonderful a dry shampoo could be. Not only did it have a wonderful scent to it, but it really fluffed up my hair, and made it come to life. It did actually hold throughout the day. I have fine hair, so I really love how this dry shampoo adds volume to my hair. I was very happy with the Batiste.
A few days later I had gone to get my hair cut. After my hairdresser cut and blow dried my hair she sprayed a volumizer on my hair at the roots. It looked like a dry shampoo but was much smaller and was called a volumizer. It was really expensive so I did not purchase it. Later I was looking at the information that came with my bottle of Batiste and noticed that it can be used to just add volume to fine hair! Voila, I now have my volumizer for fraction of the cost of what my hairdryer used!
I would highly recommend Batiste to use between shampoos and/or to add volume to your fine hair. I am so excited I was able to try out this Dry Shampoo, it is two products in one for me!
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.
