A few of you have said you want to know more about this, so after a few days of road testing here are my preliminary thoughts.
Dry shampoo for use when you don't have time or facilities to give your hair a 'proper wash'. A fine coloured powder that tries to soak up excess oil, removing the shine that makes hair look greasy.
I have not tired the normal Batiste but having used this a few times to test (rather than because I havent had time to wash eugh!) I have found it quite a nifty product. Unlike other dry shampoos I have seen, this colour really sinks in and blends well to my hair (rather than looking like an odd form of dandruff).
How I used it: I simply brushed my hair flat into a parting, and then sprayed the can at arms length on to the crown and back of my head. I then left for a few minutes and gently brushed with a natural bristled brush (as told by the can!).
Does it work: It looks a bit odd without brushing, but in general this perked up my hair in a few minutes and gave me an extra few hours. Especially useful if you have got caught in the rain and dried out but your hair is looking a bit lifeless. It has a bit of a smell, but I can't quite work out if I like it or not. It's not that bad, but perhaps a bit sterile or hairspray like. Maybe I just used it in a confined space.
I think this would be really useful if I had a styled and gripped look that was looking a bit greasy with hairspray.
I wouldn't want to use this on a regular basis as a) that's a bit gross and b) your hair does need to be greasy every now and again to keep condition- so reaching for the Batiste every day could have damaging effects? It seems to have washed out fine though.
My can cost £2.99 from Superdrug and they had lots of different ones including black, blonde and original. I think prices begin at around £1.79. It doesn't say CFC free which could mean very bad things for our planet, however you can recycle the can :)
Have you tried this product? How have you found it? Do you think dry shampoo needs to be in a spray can, or would a sprinkle shaker be better? As always, comment below :).
P.s. I did take photos but they really didnt show up so I scrapped them.
