Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo

POP YOUR CHERRY! The new fruity one from Batiste
Low down:  Indulge in the beauty of yesteryear with the new Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo with an unmistakeable fruity fragrance and cute design inspired by our latest love of vintage glamour. Batiste Cherry refreshes the parts other dry shampoos can’t reach, leaving your hair revived and fruity when you have far better things to do than wash your hair.

USP:  Batiste Dry Shampoo is speedy, kicking oily roots into touch with a quick burst, it gives dull, lifeless hair an instant makeover without water. For extra oomph, body and texture, Batiste is also a one stop styler so you never need to worry about skipping a shampoo.

How to use:  Shake it up vigorously before use and keeping the nozzle about 30cm from hair, spray into roots. Massage through with fingertips and then brush and style …with a cherry on top!

My Review: As regular readers of my blog will know, i'm pretty new to trying Batiste and I was incredibly sceptical before I tried it - as i'm sure many of you are/were. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised with the results when I finally did use it (read my previous review here).

In return for an honest review (as always), I was sent a 200ml bottle of new Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo to try .....and I couldn't wait!

Admittedly, as soon as I knew that my bottle was en route, I stopped washing my hair in order to give it a thorough test (much to my kids disgust).

Tearing open the package like a kid on Christmas morning, I was met with a gorgeous tin covered with pictures of small cherries in fresh, light colours .....beautiful and so girlie too! Almost tripping over myself, I ran upstairs and grabbed my brush. My hair was slick to say the least, it had been around 4 days since it's last wash, and it was certainly ready for a burst of life. I then preceded to apply the Batiste Cherry to my hair as per the instructions. I seriously wish my blog had a 'scratch n sniff' so you could experience the gorgeous cherry fragrance, it wasn't at all what I expected. Most cherry scented things have a sickly tinge to them, but this just made my nose twitch with delight and reminded me of happy summer days. My partner gave me a hug a few hours later and couldn't stop sniffing my hair - he said I smelled of Love Hearts/Refreshers and I can kinda see his point.

Apart from the great smell, Batiste delivers clean, healthy, shiny hair without the hassle of having to wash thoroughly, although do follow the instructions carefully! When they say 'hold the can 30cm from your head' then I strongly suggest you do, as any closer, and it can make dark hair look slightly white - much the same as spraying on deodorant too close to your armpit.

All in all I absolutely loved this and for the price, you really can't go wrong! It's so simple to use, eliminates the need for perfume, and leaves you feeling confident in the knowledge that your hair looks amazing!
