Since fracturing my elbow, I can safely say that my hair is made up of 90% dry shampoo – I just can’t be bothered with the daily struggle of trying to get my hair looking nice whilst only being able to use my left arm. Batiste is one of my go-to brands for dry shampoo, and a while ago they sent me two new products to try out. One of them has been a Godsend over the last two weeks.
My hair needs regular conditioning and keeping on top of it has been a struggle with my fracture, so the 2-in-1 Invisible Dry Shampoo & Conditioner has become a little bit of a haircare hero for me. It has a gorgeous coconut and cashmere scent and it refreshes your hair instantly from root to tip without any oil or dryness.
It’s not like a regular dry shampoo though, so don’t be getting too carried away near the roots. Spray it from arm’s length starting at the roots (you can always add more if needed, but as it’s a conditioner as well, you don’t want too much near the roots). Massage it into the roots in order to add some more volume and remove any excess oil that might be lingering, giving you that greasy look. Then, using your hands or a brush – I prefer a brush to ensure no oil transfers from my hands to my hair – work the product through the rest of your hair, especially the ends as it nourishes them.
This is great for a quick fix, and gives me an extra couple of days before looking in the mirror reminds me that I really need to use actual shampoo. If any of you are going to any festivals this Summer (mud doesn’t do it for me and I’m just not cool), then a can of this in your bag would be ideal.
200ml usually costs £4.49 but it is currently on offer at Superdrug * for £2.23 so stock up!
If your roots are starting to come through or there’s a little grey hair ruining your vibe, then there’s also the Hide Me Root Concealer. Now I haven’t needed to use this as my roots are fine and, fingers crossed, there’s still no grey in my hair, so I can’t give an opinion on it, but I thought that I would show you it anyway. It’s available in different shades and is an easy to use powder that blends with your natural shade.
All you have to do is pull your hair flat against your head (make sure your hair is dry) and press the powder onto your roots, building up the colour gradually. It lasts until you next shampoo your hair, and is great if you don’t have time to go get those roots done. I’m holding onto this as I have a sinking feeling that the greys will be making an appearance soon.
It costs £12.99 and is available from Boots *.
