Most Helpful Positive Review The perfect dry shampoo for fine/oily hair!
My hair type is extremely fine and straight. It can also be dry at the ends, but extremely oily at the roots the day after I wash it. I try to go as long as I can without washing it because I do color it and my ends are prone to breakage (especially in the winter). The Batiste dry shampoo is a dream come true for my hair!! I have posted photos of my hair at 4 days since I last washed it. My roots still look very clean! I do not look oily or greasy. I also love the Batiste Original because it gave my hair some texture and a lot of volume. I was able to put a little curl/wave in it, which is difficult for me to do. And my hair does not look flat, which is a feat! Additionally the smell of the Batiste is very nice. It's clean and not "perfume-y". I am very sensitive to overpowering smells and this is not overpowering at all. One thing I will note is that is does leave a residue on the scalp (which I have found with every dry shampoo), but it's not very heavy and it doesn't bother me. I found the Batiste Original to work perfectly for my fine, oily hair. I really love this product.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's Me, Not You
My hair is straight and very, very fine. The only products I can get away with using on it dry are hairspray and the teeniest, teeniest bit of argan oil. Otherwise everything else just weighs it down. I also have to wash it every day (or every other day if i wear it down one day, up the next). I bough this in hopes of prolonging the time between washes, because it's obviously not good to wash your hair as much as i need to.
This isn't a bad product--i can see how it would work very well for some people. For me, it showed up a little dusty in my brown hair (which you can get rid of by massaging it in really well), but it also weighed it down a bit, as almost everything does.
Glad i tried it, but sadly this must go back. Ulta has a great return policy, so if you think you'd like it, try it! I think, unless your hair is a finicky as mine, you might just like it!

this stuff leaves a horrible white residue on my hair, I'll admit I have pretty dark hair but it also weighs my hair down and only leaves it fresh for a few hours before the oils come through again.
Extend between Shampoos and adds Vomune

I use this when I am running late and have no time to shampoo/condition, you know the whole nine yards. This takes care of the little sweat or whatever is bugging me. Its also great for after a workout.
Love Love this product!!

It saves me so much time!! Love Love It!!
JPspirit from Boise, ID
I have fine, thin, slightly wavy, chin-length hair that tends to do better with daily washing. Was hoping I could use this every other day instead of washing and to keep the morning routine simple while staying presentable for days full of video calls. It's really just ok. I think my hair looks okay right after application, but then only for a couple of hours. I'll keep testing and revise my review if I can get it to work better, but for now I'm pretty lukewarm about it.
Celi from Portland
This product works great! It takes away the oil and smells nice. Because of the pressure of the spray, it can put more on your hair then planned, thus turning your hair white. My hair is dark brown, but I could rub it in, and this doesn't happen every time I spray.
Everything you need in a Dry Shampoo

Inexpensive works great
Great dry shampoo
Peach from WI
Best dry shampoo I have ever used and I have tried a lot. No white powder residue. Still looks good the second day after.

Mar from Los Angeles
even against expensive ones, I will always reach for this. be sure to really work the product into the hair and scalp and brush through. it definitely restores that fresh fluffy look to hair even after almost a week of not washing.
Not my favorite
Lulu from Michigan
This dry shampoo does work but it leaves a powder on my brown hair which goes away when I brush it through, however the smell is overpowering even for me and I don't usually have a problem with scents but this one will linger ALL DAY in your hair and u will be smelling it till u wash it out.
Not good for brown haired folks
Charmy from CA
I have dark brown wavy hair and when I'd spray the dry shampoo on my roots, it would leave behind grey residue and it's so obvious I sprayed dry shampoo in my hair. Also, it didn't really get rid of the oiliness. After spraying, my hair remained oily and looked grey.
K Lady from Battle Ground, WA
No more oil concerns and lots of volume! I would have to wash my hair every day if it wasn't for this dry shampoo.

Great price for a really good product. Lasts all day, even if I sweat. Only damper is I have to reapply everyday.

Not for dark brown hair, it leaves white residue!
Saving my bald spot for now
Covered the thinning hair from Winslow Maine
Well my daughter has always used this product and has been happy. Recently I noticed my hair falling out and balding. I have tried switching shampoos and have been trying to figure out what to do. I saw a video on how to cover up the bald spot with batiste , so thought I would give it a try. I loved the results.
Yes I will buy it again.
Candy from Arlington, TX
I use it when my hair needs washing and I haven't had a chance to. It helps decrease the oil and separation as my hair is blonde and fine.
This leaves a gross residue in your hair

I have long blonde greasy hair and it still doesnt work
My new favorite
Wilmary from Mass
The only thing I will say, if you have dark hair be careful. It'll leave your hair white. Use it sparingly. Other than that, this works really well and smells nice.
My go-to dry shampoo!
reinaa from Los Angeles, CA
I wanted to try dry shampoo as my hair stylist recommend I use some so I won't have to shampoo my hair everyday after some intense coloring. I've tried quite a few of the scents from this brand and they are all really nice! The spray is even and easy to blend into the scalp. The white cast goes away if you blend in with your fingers too. Highly recommend!
Amanda from Orlando, FL
I love using this when I need a little volume or my hair is getting oily but I don't want to wash it yet (if you have thick curly hair, you'll know what I mean!). While this does spray white into the hair, it's a strong & powerful spray and I just leave it for a couple minutes and then disperse the product with my fingers and my hair looks freshly washed! I love this stuff and will always come back to it.
Mackie from Mobile
This product does work, but I found that my forehead was breaking out badly.
Great on thin, oily, blonde hair
Nicoleska from Canton, Michigan
I like the smell and it keeps my hair from looking greasy the day after washing, which it normally does. My hair is light, thin, straight, and gets oily fast. Using Batiste on day 2 keeps it nicer than the day it was washed. Doesn't make it tangly. Costs a bit more than my normal shampoo, so I hope a can lasts a while. Overall very worth buying and using. I wish I'd tried it sooner. I'm going to buy every scent!
Best Dry Shampoo!

I use this for 2nd and 3rd days after washing for clean, fluff and body. It also helps with roots - make them look lighter but if I spray too much product it looks grayish. You have to rub in well and brush out.
Breakage/shedding after long time use
Ash from Michigan
Honestly it does work really well. I used Batiste for a few years but recently stopped buying as my main dry shampoo. I noticed that it was starting to cause a lot of drying and breakage on the top of my head, at my roots. I wash my hair every 4 days and when using Batiste in between washes, my head started getting really itchy and my roots were starting to get brittle. I switched to a different dry shampoo and have noticed a big difference. I will still use Batiste, but only once in a while. I think it's a little too harsh to use as my main dry shampoo.
