Review: Batiste XXL Volume Dry Shampoo

Hello my darlings! 

I have been a fan of dry shampoos for a few years now (I started off using the Lee Stafford ones before they realeased the fancy coloured ones! As i thought they smelt amazing!) But this was long before i discovered the much cheaper, alternative in Batiste!
Batistes latest dry shampoo release is the XXL Volume dry shampoo for big and bouncy hair. It is now housed in a large 200ml can (which is taking over from the original 150ml cans) and has a nice pink swirly design on the can. There is also a 400ml size can which i bet is huge(!) and i need to get my hands on this!

My hair is quite flat and lacks volume so this is certainly a fab product and gets a thumbs up from me. When i first used this i seemed to forget that it was a dry shampoo as will as a boosting spray and sprayed it far too near the roots leaving me forever trying to rub the white patches out! Once i finally got the hand of it (& sprayed from 30cm away - not that i measured!) onto my roots, i used my finger tips to rub in the dry shampoo and volumise my hair. 

It definitely did give my hair volume and it is a nice addition to the normal dry shampoo and still does the job of banishing oily roots! I would love to see this in the coloured version which would be perfect for us darker haired ladies!

The 200ml Batiste XXL Volume dry shampoo is available from boots and superdrug and retails at £3.99 for 200ml. 

Will you be buying?

  1. This is something I have walked past for a while now, I think I just need to buy it as my hair could do with some volume! The 400ml can is a monster, I love it! xx

  2. Have always wanted to try dry shampoo but I keep putting it off because I was never sure what the results would be.

    But I'm going to hunt down some of this - my hair needs all the volume in the world!

  3. Ooh I may have to get this, I am in constant need of more volumised hair! I hope they do a brunette version, trying to rub out the white patches that occur is so annoying! xx

  5. My friend and I thought about buying this for a festival we went to but decided we didn't need the large can or the extra volume! Thank you for reviewing it though as I wasn't sure whether to buy it when I got back!

  9. I've seen these around, but i still have one and a half cans of the older batiste's and half a mark hill holiday hair dry shampoo! Sadly i think i'll be chucking the batiste out! Mark hill's doesn't leave any white what so ever and works even better! :) Smells gorgeous too. x

  11. Batiste dry shampoo is one of my must-haves. I usually just go for the scented versions because I have no problem with volume.. But they are great to give movement to 'past-it' hair!

  12. No grease + volume = heaven <3

  13. I started my obsession with dry shampoo from Lee Stafford too!! I was using it before all the fancy coloured ones came out.

    Is it strange that I don't really like batiste that much? It always makes my head super itchy!!

    Check out my new review series, first post today.
    Thanks,

  20. Do you find it leaves your hair feeling quite chalky? In a good way cos it keeps the volume in but it's a bit bizarre! haha
