Batiste Dry Shampoo with a hint of colour

I've recently tried out Batiste's latest offering which is a dry shampoo with a hint of colour. It is available in three shades: blonde, brunette, and black. The idea is that is does the same job as the normal Batiste dry shampoos but deposits a hint of colour. For those of you familiar with using Batiste, you will also be used to that white deposit usually left behind. Personally, I've never really had an issue with this because a bit of a swish of my hair and it blends in quite nicely. I am however a blonde and I can imagine if I had darker hair this would be a bit of a problem for me. Here is what a generous spray of normal Batiste looks like on my hair.
And here it is after a shake and a brush through.
In hindsight, I can see a little whiteness still, but it's not glaringly obvious to me in person. I just look a little more bleach blonde than honey blonde.
This is an equally generous spray of the tonal Batiste spray in blonde. As you can see, much more of a blonde tint to it.
And after a brush through, voila. There is no white residue at all. It's blended in completely. Whilst I can see the advantage of using this over regular Batiste, as a blonde, I will continue to use the regular version, if for no other reason than it smells nicer! But this is a great alternative for when I'm in even more of a rush than usual, as I noticed I don't have to brush it through as much to blend in with my hair colour. The obvious advantage lies with darker haired ladies where I can imagine the contrast between a white shampoo and dark hair would be slightly more obvious, and a dry shampoo with a darker tone in would solve this issue. Whatever your hair colour, it works a treat and there's no disadvantage of using this over any other dry shampoo.
I was kindly sent this product to sample, but I believe it's available from Superdrug at £2.

I may have to try the one for darker hair. I do like Batiste, but I do notice a bit of whiteness left over sometimes, especially since my hair is so dark. Like you said, I can normally brush it out but sometimes I'm self conscious there's still some left at the back or something! Lol. Nice post. xxx

i do like the one for dark hair, i did a similar review to this on the one for darker hair, but i didnt notice a great deal of difference just less white left over residue, but if you use it correctly there will be none :)
