Flowers in my hair...

I was recently sent a sample of Batiste Fun and Floral Dry Shampoo, (which was developed with Pixie Lott) for review by their lovely PR people. A big thank you to the lovely Lisa for sending me this! 
This product usually costs around £2.99 RRP and is available at Boots and Superdrug.  Even though I did not purchase this product myself, all opinions are honest and my own. I was delighted to receive this,because you all know that I am a big fan of Batiste Dry Shampoo already! 
I use it literally every day, even when I have just washed my hair, because it gives my hair amazing texture and volume. I always spray it on close to the roots of my hair, and then allow it to ‘sit’ there for a minute before I brush it through. Once I have brushed it out, I then use a large paddle brush to backcomb my hair at the roots for added volume.
I usually use the Blush edition dry shampoo or the XXL Volume one (which I love using before a night out because it gives my hair mega volume!)
I had not tried this new edition before, so I was really glad to get the chance to try it. The first thing that struck me about the product was the fun and colourful packaging,
the patterned green and blue design and the picture of Pixie Lott really make this product a cute addition to your dressing table or bathroom shelf.




 I washed and blow dried my hair as usual, before quickly running my straightening irons through it. Next, I sprayed on the dry shampoo and backcombed my hair at the crown. I was truly impressed with how much volume and texture the product gave my hair, as well as making it smell like a meadow of wildflowers!
 The dry shampoo definitely gave my hair plenty of body which lasted all day.
In the evening, I put my hair up to go for a walk and the dry shampoo really held the style in place as well as giving it more texture than usual. 



I love the way your hair has so much more volume when you use Batiste Dry Shampoo.


When I sprayed the product on, the floral fragrance came as a lovely surprise. I love the fragrance of the Blush Dry Shampoo, but this one has a light, slightly oriental fragrance which is perfect for those summer nights, parties and drinks with friends. I was so impressed by the volume that this product gave my hair. I also recommend using Batiste Dry Shampoo if you are wearing your hair up, because the texture that the product gives your hair makes your hairstyle last longer.
If you have long enough hair, a fun summer style is two divide it into two equal sections, plait the sections and pin them loosely up on your head with hair pins. This creates a lovely boho hair style which stays in longer if you use dry shampoo first. Pull a few strands of hair loose to frame your face and complete the look. A messy texture makes this style look even prettier.
All in all, I was so impressed by this product that I will definitely be using it on a regular basis from now on. I loved the fragrance, the packaging and the volume that it gave my hair.  I think the price is very reasonable too, as you only need a little spray of it to revive your hair in between washes or to give volume to your everyday style. Batiste Dry Shampoo is definitely a saviour when it comes to holidays, festivals, camping and nights out. I just can’t get through the day without it and this one is a welcome addition to the range.


This would not be a post from me without me including a quick outfit of the day! I just threw on this H&M dress and Kimono for a day in the city. This dress is such an easy piece to wear and it only cost £7.99 ! I love outfits like this that can just be put together at the last minute without any forethought.

    1. They are such good dry shampoos aren't they? They just give so much volume! The scent of this one is very nice, I will repurchase it when I have used it and stock up on it because I do not know if it is a limited edition or not!

  7. This is the only Batiste dry shampoo I haven't tried and I will definitely have to pick some up, I love the brunette one at the minute as I have dip dyed hair like you and find the white powder turns my hair an ashy brown something that the brunette one doesn't do. You are so gorgeous, and I love that white kimono style jacket you are wearing!

  8. I haven't tried Batiste dry shampoo ever, but I've heard that it was the first company that made it. I use Herbal Essences version because of the peppermint smell. :-)
