Since then, I've tried out other brands for comparison. The biggest thing I've noticed is some tend to be grittier than others. Too gritty and you look like you have dandruff. Not gritty enough get the job done, but you don't get the added benefit of a subtle texturizer in your hair, which, at least for my hair type, is a bonus! Batiste, I've found, is the perfect balance of oil-absorbing and texturizing.
In the winter months, the texturizing isn't as important, but in the summertime, if I've made it more than three days without washing my hair, it's gone into a sort of zen of shine, low frizz and magazine-worthy waves. My natural oils have reached peak saturation point, and I've curled it enough so the curls don't fall out anymore. Alas, this is also when all the hair around my face becomes stringy, and my scalp begins flaking ... not to mention my hair smells like outside, as I like to call it.
That's when dry shampoo does its magic, and when I use Batiste, it not only absorbs the oil -- it makes those previously stringy pieces do whatever I want.
Flyaways? Not a problem. Need more volume? Done. Hair keeps sliding out of a bobby pin? Never!
And, of course, it acts as perfume for your hair, so that 3-day-old smell vanishes. I tried the cherry scent this time, and it smelled like summer break in middle school. Love it!
