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 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.
Best Dry Shampoo
carly33 from Boston, MA
Great price for a really good product. Lasts all day, even if I sweat. Only damper is I have to reapply everyday.

i haven't washed my hair in a week and this is why
Dry shampoo from Nevada
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!
Blues Gal from Long Beach
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.
So much white residue!
Sarah from Lakewood, CO
Although this product does the job, there is so much white residue! To be fair, I have jet black hair. I have to rub it in to get the residue to fade otherwise I look like Cruella De Vil. In addition, it dries out your hair! Won't be purchasing again.
Ang from Tampa
I bought the small travel size to try it out before I bought the regular size and I love it!! I have never used dry shampoo before but I'm definitely sticking to Batiste!
Better than more expensive ones
Sharon from Chicago
I have tried many dry shampoos and I keep coming back to this one. So reasonably priced, and comes in a variety of scents although this is one of my favorites. Works great to extend your shampoo a day or two longer... always take the travel size with me when I travel.have tried more expensive ones and they don't work as well.
After 7 years, still my go to dry shampoo!
Miya from Chicago, IL
I've been using this product for years! I've tried other pricier and cheaper products as well, but I keep going back to this one. I only wash my hair 1 - 2 times a week, so this really comes in handy in keeping my hair clean and not oily. It smells great and is easy to use. Even after using it 2-3 times there is no buildup! I have long dark asian hair, and my only recommendation is to put it in your hair before you go to sleep! That way the product has a chance to work its magic overnight and you don't have to leave the house with any grey streaks!
Humble1 from Humble, TX
I googled best dry shampoos and this one came up as number 1 and I know why!! It works. I have thinning hair and a day after washing my hair, the thinness is apparent. I just bend over, spray this all over my hair, rub it on the roots, and voila, my hair looks full again. I can throw away all my other dry shampoos that left my hair feeling sticky or just didn't return the volume I need--this stuff works and now it is in a larger size. How great is that!!!
Must have dry shampoo!
Morgan from Hudson WI.
This is the only dry shampoo I find to work with all the oil in my hair. I have very thin and very oily hair. By day 2 I already need dry shampoo. This is hands down the best dry shampoo I have tried. Nothing else works the way it does. It smells great, blends in with your hair, and absorbs all the oils. I highly recommend this dry shampoo to anyone with thin and oily hair!
Faith from Tennessee
I have fine hair, and as soon as I started using it I noticed that after I wash and condition my hair that it is EXTREMELY tangled. I have not changed any of the hair products I use so I know it's because of this dry shampoo. I have to immediately go back and condition my hair again to even be able to comb through it. I do not recommend and I do not understand how this is supposedly the "best" dry shampoo.
Adds volume to clean hair!!
Melissa 30041 from Atlanta Georgia
I have fine, super straight hair. I don't get oily hair at the roots so I didn't think I had a use for dry shampoo. Wow! I was so wrong. This adds so much body and texture to my baby fine hair. Still fluffy the next day. Great product.
Cris from Los Angeles
My scalp started itching like crazy. I got dandruff and little pimples on my hair line. Next thing I know, I started shedding strands of hair, more than usual. I did hear about a girl suing this company for hair fall but I shrugged it off and bought it anyway. Should have listened to my gut. Please do research and do not use dry shampoo! Especially this brand.
