Dry Shampoo Dilemma | John Frieda VS Batiste VS Charles Worthington {REVIEW}

IMG_3144 - Copy


This has been a difficult post to write because I wanted to come out out if it with a “And the best dry shampoo is…” but all three of these work amazingly well for similar AND different reasons. Yet they all have a few down falls too :/

Charles Worthington Salon At Home Style Setter Dry Shampoo 

– Absorbs oil amazingly well and you can go a good three (and sometimes four) days without washing your hair.

– Gives your hair fab volume and bounce. And even a little shine – and not in an oily way.

– This brand definitely has the most lightweight consistency of all three.

– The only dry shampoo which left a visible residue even after trying to brush the residue out.




Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush (also in Original, Refresh, Cherry, XXL & Wild)

– Gorgeous smell and it leaves your hair feeling really soft, even if it was previously quite coarse from being unwashed.

– Definitely a firm guru favourite in the beauty world.

– One bottle honestly lasts you half a year.

– They have an ever-increasing range so that there is something to suit everyone’s needs.

– The XXL bottle left my hair feeling hard and sticky, almost as if I had just used hairspray on it :/ However, my friend used the same bottle and she swears by the XXL for adding volume to your hair, so its all down to personal preference. I would definitely recommend that you only use the XXL type on up-do hairstyles.




John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo

– The residue is ultra fine, therefore leaving to trace of the residue at all.

– All three brands give great body and volume, but this one definitely takes the cake. Bouncy hair for DAYS!

– This is the only dry shampoo out of the three that I would be happy with spraying on my roots. All three can be sprayed on them but the other two leave a bit of an oily feel behind while this one does not at all.

– The smell is a bit like a gassy deodorant, not as fresh smelling as you would imagine a ‘Hair Refresher’ to be.



So there you have it! I love and dont love all three of these brands for different reasons. Price wise, the Batiste is a teeeeny bit better priced, and all three can be bought at Clicks stores.

Have you used any of these? And what did you think of them?

    Hi Rayne, thanks for your comment on my Muji post. I’ve recently come back to blogging so have only just seen your comment. Have you tried the superdrug coloured dry shampoo? It’s great for covering roots & when my grey hairs start popping through 🙁 I love the tropical Batiste though. x
