My Hair Saviour . . . Batiste XXL

Hey girlies,

Hope everyone is well! :)

I've gotta admit, i love my beauty sleep, and todays review is all about what saves my hair when i've overslept and haven't got time to jump in the shower. Ladies, meet one of Batiste's recruits, the XXL.

As the name would suggest this bottle of Batiste is all about giving your hair some va-va-voom, being a girl who loves a bit of volume, i thought i'd give it a thorough testing.

The bottle itself is on the rather tall side (400ml! :o ), when sat amongst the smaller versions of Batiste in Boots/Superdrug it looks pretty monstrous! Evidently aimed at the ladies, there is a rather groovy (definitely didn't say groovy...) pink swirly pattern on the front and the usual 'how to' guide on the back which is super useful for dry shampoo novices.

So, does it work? It sure does! When sprayed and massaged (or sleepily rubbed in...) into my hair this little beauty leaves me with fuller bodied hair with volume at the roots, with no signs of greasy hair. This dry shampoo has a slightly weird texture, it leaves your hair feeling slightly 'stiff', almost like you've used a bit of hairspray. I wouldn't say thats a negative though, as it does hold the volume in place for a reasonable amount of time.

If you haven't already, i'd truly recommend checking out the Batiste products in Boots/Superdrug. They are reasonably priced and always come in handy, especially if you need that ever so vital extra 10 minutes in bed in the morning...
