Since lightening my hair a bit with multiple tones of blonde in my naturally dark brown hair, I have had to look for ways to help disguise my growth. I just want to be able to blend it in a bit, so it isn't a drastic difference. While at Walgreen's about a month ago I came across Batiste Dry Shampoo Light and Blonde. I figured for $7.99, I'd give it a try.
After about 4 or 5 weeks, I am in desperate need to get my hair color touched up. I don't mind a bit of regrowth and since I have kept some dark brown throughout and the entire bottom of my hair is still dark, a little blends in just fine. But when it gets to the point where it's just about time to go back to the salon, it's a little more than I can handle.
Batiste Dry Shampoo is fairly easy to use. You just shake up the can and spray in short bursts from about 6 inches away. Then you wait about a minute and brush it through you hair. Here it is just after I sprayed it waiting a minute before brushing it in.
Here you can see that I still have regrowth, but it is not a drastic dark brown vs lightish blonde.
A side by side comparison before and after.
Out and about, it does a pretty decent job. The only downside with this product is that I have a really bad habit of running my fingers through my hair throughout the day. I know this is a terrible habit for multiple reasons and I try desperately not to do it. Before taking these photos, I looked down at my black jeans and realized I had transferred a lot of the dry shampoo from my hair to my hands and then to my jeans. UGH! Maybe I'm not blending it in enough?
