Batiste // Dark and Deep Brown Review

Batiste has always been my go to dry shampoo, I've tried higher end brands as well as cheaper alternatives over the years and none have compared to Batiste. The tinted Batiste's have always caught my eye, however with only 3 colour options, I've always left it as I have Auburn hair. Over the years my hair has continued to darken, especially away in the sun and now I've grown to like my hair. Recently I've been testing out Batiste, a hint of colour Dark & Deep Brown.
You can find Batiste in any local Boots, Superdrugs, Supermarkets and online.
I had visions of my hair having dark brown/black marks all over my roots when using this, however I was wrong. This shade really does suit my hair, no more panicking if I've got any white powder left in my hair. Coloured Batiste ends all worries, well for me anyway. 
As we all know washing our hair every day isn't actually good for it and a lot of hassle. I tend to wash my hair, miss a day and wash the next evening. My hair is pretty thick and getting long so washing, drying and styling in the morning is a no, no. This is where I always use Batiste. When I do use batiste, my hair does need a little pick me & refresh, but it's not overly oily, I'm blessed that way. Using dry shampoo puts me at ease, makes my hair smell nice, especially this can and gives me extra volume. The scent has had a lot of compliments.
When I first sprayed this Batiste on my hand it came out an ashy grey colour, however on my hair I wouldn't say it appears grey, it blends in well especially once worked through. Those of you with darker brown hair may prefer if this Batiste did come out a little more pigmented. But for me it works fantastic. 
Medium & Brunette is actually marketed for 'Fiery Auburns', though I got on fine with the Dark & Deep Brown, Blonde's aren't left out either, try the Light & Blonde version, could be a life saver for you when it comes to roots. 

I did find when I washed my hair in the bath that I was greeted by grey water marks on the bath, where I'd been resting for my conditioner to work it's magic. It washed out and washed off the bath easily and while feeling not so great this week, I actually went an extra day again and my hair looked like I'd just washed it. I personally think the coloured batiste work better than the original and blush versions I've used in the past. Another great product for banishing oil and adding volume from Batiste.

Disclaimer: This was sent to me to review, however my opinion is 100% honest, I am not paid for any links above. I've always been a fan of Batiste.

  1. I've been wondering whether to buy this or not, I always use the normal Batiste and was a bit sceptical of this range. Thanks for the review, will probs give it a go now

  3. I used to use this but I thought I'd try the XXL Volume one. Think I'll probably go back to this though after I've finished it just because it takes less effort to work in.
