Batiste Dry Conditioner | Review

Dry C 1I have a confession to make, dear readers: I rely on dry shampoo to an extent that is almost socially unacceptable. Due to a combination of hair extensions that do better without too much heat exposure, and a lazy personality that would rather watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians marathons than do anything as tedious as washing my hair, I turn to these little cans of trickery at least a couple of times a week. When I first heard about dry conditioner then, it’s no surprise that my big masssive ears pricked up in immediate anticipation.

I think that dry conditioners have only been around for a couple of months, and of course one of the leaders in the market is every lazy girl’s favourite brand, Batiste. Dry conditioners are supposed to be different from other conditioning sprays such as leave-in conditioners, which can still leave hair feeling heavy and wet. The aerosol dry conditioner means that you get all of the benefits of a proper conditioning treatment but without any of the wetness, stickiness or weight.

Dry c 2This sounded like something I badly needed in my life. Although my hair looks fine on dry shampoo days it can often feel dry, and so something that can make it feel soft without adding oiliness would basically be a kind of miracle in a can.

Batiste say that their product can be used either after shampooing and conditioning your hair normally, for added smoothness and to tame frizz and flyaways; or it can be used after dry shampoo for a complete hair refresh in between washes. All you do is hold the can 30 centimetres away from your hair and then spray on the lengths and ends of the hair, avoiding the roots so you don’t end up looking like a greaseball.

Dry c 3After using this for the first time yesterday, I was really impressed. It instantly gave a softness to my hair that wasn’t heavy or greasy feeling, plus it actually added some noticeable shine, which is  tricky to get on blonde hair at the best of times. I’ve woke up this morning and whereas my hair – particularly my ends – would normally be feeling dry, it still feels soft and manageable.

Overall I’m really pleased with the dry conditioner from Batiste, and I’m sure it’s going to be just as much of a success as their dry shampoos. I picked mine up for £3.99 from Boots and urge lazy girls and boys like me to do the same. Let’s make hair washing a thing of the past! (Okay, that might be a bit far, sorry…)

Have any of you tried dry conditioner yet? What do you think?

    This sounds like a fab product, I already love their dry shampoos too, so I’ll have to take a look at this next time I’m in Boots! x x

      They’ve been my go-to brand for dry shampoos for years now so I knew I was in safe hands with their conditioner 🙂 Wonder whether they’ll bring out more scents etc like they do with the shampoos too! xx

      I agree, it seems so obvious now but it makes so much sense 🙂 Definitely recommend! xx

    This sounds great, I always get put off dry shampoos as they do make my hair a little dry but this Combo could be a dream.

    Oh my, I am going to have to try this! Didn’t even know this existed! Thanks.

    • Claire December 30, 2013 / 7:02 pm

      I’m really surprised it hasn’t been hyped more tbh, I think a lot of people will be keen to try it! xx

    This is a great idea, I think it would make my thin locks a greasy mess though!

    • Claire January 1, 2014 / 11:23 am

      Ooh I wouldn’t be so sure – it’s just a really fine mist so I’m sure on the ends it would still do the job perfectly 🙂 I’m intrigued though, let me know if you ever get round to trying it out 🙂 xx

    • Claire January 7, 2014 / 9:16 am

      Not many people seem to have heard of it tbf, but it’s definitely worth trying out 🙂 xx

  7. Sharon January 6, 2014 / 11:00 pm

    I’m really rather intrigued by this – I may have to grab a can next time I’m in Boots!

    Sharon 🙂

      I definitely recommend giving it a go, you don’t need to use too much either so I’m sure a bottle will last a long time 🙂 xx

    Definitely, going to try this out. I’m washing my hair once every week and it’s really oily. So I need a lot of dry shampoo. This dry conditioner sounds even better 🙂
