But several months ago, I dyed my hair from brown to blonde and the bleaching left my hair really dry and breakage-prone. My stylist suggested I wash my hair less often, so I started researching dry shampoos again.
Last week, I reviewed the new Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam (see that post here) and was disappointed in the outcome, so several people on social media suggested I try Batiste.
I found it at my local Target and was impressed by all the different scents there were to choose from. I had the tropical one in my hand and then I spotted the Brilliant Blonde formula ($6.99) and ended up taking that home instead.
Brilliant Blonde has a yellow tint to help blend darker roots and cover grays (they also make a brunette version). I found that it did help a little bit...not so much to the point where my roots disappeared but there was definitely less contrast than before.
The thing that impressed me the most was the formula...it's lightweight, almost like you're using a hairspray and it dried almost immediately with no sticky or powdery feel. It just disappeared right into my hair.
I forgot to take a "before" photo but if you saw my Ouai post from last week, you're familiar with how flat and limp my hair looks on days 2 and 3.
I took this photo on Tuesday morning of this week right after I woke up (I had previously washed my hair Sunday morning) and after using the Batiste, my hair looked clean, fresh, and voluminous rather than flat and oily. It lasted throughout the entire day right up until I went to bed and my hair never became limp or oily-looking.

Overall, I'm in love with Batiste and will definitely be heading back to Target to grab a few more scents. I love being able to extend my blowout an extra day...I think it'll make a huge difference in the health of my hair.
If you haven't had good luck with dry shampoos, try Batiste...I'm sure you'll love it!
