Being a girl with very smooth straight hair, I sometimes think my hair goes really flat so I'm always on the look out for ways to add a bit of body to it. Batiste is a brand that I completely love and its the only brand of dry shampoo I own. So I thought that the Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume would be perfect for me as it would (essentially) do two jobs with one product. Unfortunately I was wrong.
As a dry shampoo, this product works just as wonderfully as all the others in the range. Its the XXL volume element that really lets it down. I tried this product out on both freshly washed hair and second day hair to see if it would have a different result. I did end up feeling the same way about the product what ever way I used it. To put it simply, it made my normally very smooth hair, insanely tuggy and knotted to the point of not even being about to get my comb through it. I also noticed my hair got a lot drier since using this product. The worst part about it though is that it never even added any volume to my hair. All I gained was knots.
I am very disappointed with this product and definitely won't be re-purchasing again. I gave it a fair go as I did use it for a couple of weeks since I had no other dry shampoo to use. I'm not sure if the product just didn't agree with my hair or if its happened to other people so do let me know in the comments if you have tried it.
I hope you enjoyed this post!
