Fellow dark-haired lovelies, RUN to your nearest stockist for Batiste’s latest brainwave (it’s a good’un!)

Batiste Coloured Dry Shampoo!

This promises to solve the only problem I’ve ever had with dry shampoo!

Props where it’s due, Batiste have done so well to revamp their image in recent years and have become a cult favourite the world over.

I’m all for quick starts in the morning and since discovering Batiste I can’t remember the last time I had to scrape my hair back in a ponytail.

Just one thing… what about the redheads?

Are you a dry shampoo fanatic?

    I have the original and I don’t use it much because it looks like I’ve powdered my scalp. Apparently the James Brown dry shampoo is meant to be better because it’s finer?

    Oh wow these look awesome. & I agree, I have ‘red’ hair but hopefully the brown one will be ok because my hair is a dark red/brown.

    Oooh so jealous *pout* why can I only find these in blush and tropical, not the coloured ones? It’s the same problem I have with dry shampoo, I have black hair.

    I love dry shampoo, I’ve got thick, coarse, wavy hair and if I wash too often it gets super dry and frizzy. I want to try this in black! Wonder what it smells like? The Oscar Blandi one smells of earl grey tea (but it’s white..boo)

  12. @FrankieBaby – If we have it here, it won’t be long before you can get your hands on it too! I dislike the smell of most of them, but at least it doesn’t linger for too long!

    Ooh I’m excited to try this out! I find that the normal ones make me look like I’ve shoved talc on my head. Despite this, i’ll still buy anything that stops me looking like a grease monkey when i’m in a rush! I’ll keep my eyes peeled, thanks!

    • @Redtiger21 – haha, I’ve tried it out and it most definitely stops the talc-dunked head look. Yano when you coat things in flour for deep frying? Nuff said ;)

      This is a vast improvement, all the usual batistey goodness without the giveaway signs! x
