Like every other girl in the world, dry shampoo is a must-have for me. It's the perfect hair pick me up if you're rushing out and don't have time to do your hair, or if you're having a lazy day and need something just to give your hair a bit of volume. What I love about Batiste is that there's a dry shampoo for just about everything... now I know they basically all do the sample thing and the only thing different is the smell, but I thought I'd try this XXL volume can. My hair is super fine so volume is something I desperately NEED, so I sometimes find myself using dry shampoo just to add that extra volume. When I saw this in the shop I thought wow, finally something that's going to be the perfect product for me.
I lightly dusted the dry shampoo over my hair, massaged it in then brushed it out, and I found the results were completely the same as any other dry shampoo. After a few minutes my hair literally puffed out and had loads of volume, but there was one problem: my fair felt absolutely awful! I couldn't even run my fingers through it, it was that stiff and fluffy. Bearing in mind this was a few minutes before I had to set off for work, I didn't even have time to wash it out and re-style my hair! What a nightmare! All through my shift my hair felt so lifeless and horrible, exactly the opposite of what I expected.
Overall I feel quite let down by my favourite go-to hair product. I'm definitely going to have to try this again a few times and hopefully rekindle my love, but maybe XXL isn't the right dry shampoo for me after all? I absolutely loved the look when the shampoo was first applied, but minutes later it totally changed. I think I'll definitely be sticking to the plain old Batiste after this nightmare.
Has anyone tried XXL Volume? What results did you find?
