Review: Batiste Big & Bouncy XXL Volume Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo has saved me from many a hair catastrophe, so when I ran out of my usual Batiste Dry Shampoo I decided to be a little more adventurous. I saw that they had the new Big & Bouncy XXL Volume version in Boots, and couldn’t wait to try it out! Who would say no to a little more volume, hey?

I was slight dubious about the ‘Big and Bouncy’ claim – my hair has a lovely little habit of looking gloriously full-bodied and lush just after a blow-dry and them promptly falling flat. Did it live up to its claims in that respect?

Well, frankly…yes! My hairย definitelyย had more volume and body, which is something I absolutely love. I don’t know that it was particularly ‘bouncy’, but then again I didn’t go jumping around my room to prove that one!

In terms of ease of usage, it was a typical dry shampoo experience – spray in, massage for a minute or so, leave for a while for the product to do its work, then brush out and style.

I feel like the dry shampoo instantly made my hair look much better – the only negative point I will make is that it made my hair feel a little sticky, something which I haven’t experienced with Batiste products before. To be fair though, if you were in a situation where anyone would need to feel your hair, it’s probably a situation in which you would just wash it. The aesthetically-pleasing factors hugely outweigh any touch-related ones!

And the end result?

    I feel like the only girl out there who experienced no results and hated this product to the ends of the earth!

      To be honest, as an update – I tried to wash this out of my hair this morning and it still feels sticky in parts :/ so not the biggest fan! x

    What about the regular version? Is that any good? Would you buy this product again?
    Just wondering xx Rosie

      I would recommend the original version over this one ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    Your hair looks lush! Maybe a product to use on special occasions when you want a bouncy(!) barnet!

    I didn’t try Batiste Dry Shampoo but I have one from other company. It’s the best product when you are to lazy to wash your hair ๐Ÿ˜› or if you oversleep to work and you need to be fast… ๐Ÿ˜€ great!

    Oh, that looks really good ๐Ÿ˜€ I use the Batiste normal dry shampoos but also one for brunettes and I’m really satisfied with the brand ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully I can try this one as well someday ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for the review! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have never heard of dry shampoo in my life! Is it like hair mousse? I think it is, but I’m not quite sure.
    Anyway… awesome article! Your hair looks so pretty in the pic!

    WOW! The end result is amazing! It’s nice to have big and bouncy hair, it makes it look so much more healthier. But then again, to be honest I wouldn’t want my hair to feel sticky either. But it looks good! ๐Ÿ˜‰ x
