My First Dry Shampoos: Batiste XXL Volume Dry Shampoo & Matrix Clean Remix Instant Dry Shampoo

Strange as it might sound, dry shampoo is new to me. I have asked my hairdresser back home why it is virtually unheard of, and the answer is powdery stuff could get sticky with the humidity. I am not sure if some might fare better but in any case, I had no experience with dry shampoo till very recently. Today I’m sharing my thoughts on the two I currently own with you, Batiste XXL Volume Dry Shampoo and Matrix Clean Remix Instant Dry Shampoo.

Hair Talk: the Last Stretch. What Has Worked for My Hair this Year

Four years ago when I was about to move to Belgium, I predicted my hairdresser would be one of the people I miss the most. Just to make things clear, I think this goes past the typical tricky Asian hair problem. It is more about the fact that he has never disappointed me during the 6 years and a half years I’ve known him. I am a minimalist when it comes to hair. I want a good cut that I can easily blow dry to make it look presentable. I use next to no styling products (I do need a curling mousse now after the perm), and after I successfully reduced the frequency of shampooing in the beginning of the year, it seems like I’m on the right track.

Even though at this moment there’s nothing else I want to do besides going straight to my hairdresser’s from the airport next Wednesday (it’s not a joke. The appointment has been booked!), I am here to share some products that have helped me through the year!
