If you have been following my blog for some time then you must be aware that the only boon that I seek from the Hair Gods is that of volume. It seems that the Gods have finally answered my prayers in the form of the Batiste Stylist XXL Volume Spray. This finishing spray is primarily marketed as a backcombing spray and claims to be a volume booster, and (drum rolls please) it actually works!
You are supposed to spray it evenly on the roots and then work the hair with your fingers or a teasing brush to create a ton of volume that lasts all day long. I have tried this product in the sweaty Indian summer months and it really maintains the volume of the hair and curbs the greasiness. I don’t think that it is publicized as a dry shampoo but in my opinion, it is basically a dry shampoo that also supplies an insane amount of volume at the roots. It absorbs oil and imparts a pleasant fragrance that lasts for a few days.
To derive the maximum benefits from this product, make sure to start with a little amount and then spray on more as per your need. The product is white in color and if you are not cautious with how much you use, you may end up with a grayish cast. The correct amount, however, blends in quite well and only leaves behind a slightly gritty and matte texture on the hair. Bear in mind that this is a volumizing spray and you will not be able to achieve a super shiny hair look with this one. Priced at INR 749 for a 200 ml bottle that will take care of your hair game for several months, this hair spray will definitely become your favorite if you suffer from fine and limp hair.
I hope this review was helpful. Buy this pretty pink bottle of goodness here.
