Batiste dry conditioner

By now, my love for dry shampoo is well documented and I know I'm not the only one who regularly turns to a can of sweet smelling magical spray to freshen up my locks and to control any oil on in between wash days. For a while now we have also been able to get dry conditioners in the same format, and as you can imagine I was really looking forward to see what the Batiste Dry Conditioner - Smoothing Conditioning mist (£3.99) was all about.
This smoothing and conditioning spray that you should only use on dry hair, contains argan oil and the idea is that it adds a little extra nourishment and care either after you've washed and dried your hair, as a follow up to a dry shampoo or just on its own during the day as a frizz control spray. Unlike Batiste's dry shampoos, the dry conditioner is completely invisible so there's no white powder like residue and it also feels very dry and light when you spray it on. It doesn't have as prominent and noticeable a scent as the dry shampoos do, however there is a very subtle and slightly flowery scent that lingers on your hair and it feels so fresh to use. You spray a generous amount of it on to the lengths of the hair and ends, and then you brush through and style as usual.

You'll notice straight away that it adds a wonderful body and movement to the hair and it leaves the hair very shiny, soft and beautifully smooth. Even though it doesn't keep the hair in place like a hair spray does, I think it's a lovely option to use during the day to tame and smooth out stubborn fly aways, without the stickiness or crispness that you can get from a hair spray. It's a really lovely conditioning spray that makes your hair look and feel sleek and healthy, as if you'd just washed it and if they keep producing amazing products like this, we'll never need to wash our hair again!

  7. I have this one but I've never tried it because I wasn't quite sure...Haha! The problem with my hair is it gets greasy quickly so I imagine I'd just need a quick spritz of this!

  33. I've never actually heard of dry conditioner - very cool! I bought a can of Batiste dry shampoo a few months ago and I'll never do it again - it was by far the worst dry shampoo I've ever used! I'm glad they do a better job with their dry conditioners! I need something to get my flyaways to lay down.

    I am an avid user of my dry shampoo, so this is just the cherry on top of the cake!
