The mystery of dry shampoo, revealed.


No time to wash your hair? Batiste Dry Shampoo is an innovative formula that boosts body and helps eliminate oily roots, giving dull lifeless hair an instant makeover without water. A quick spray revitalizes hair leaving it looking and feeling clean, no drama.

Batiste plays well with any type of brush. If you're feeling fancy, check out the Conair Batiste Dry Shampoo Brush that curves with the shape of your head to evenly distribute Batiste Dry Shampoo. You can find it here.

A few easy steps to game changing hair. First, shake the bottle vigorously. Then, section hair and hold the nozzle about 12 inches away as you spray into roots. Leave in a few moments, then massage into the scalp with fingertips to distribute evenly. Brush and style as desired. Need visuals?

It's not magic, it's science! Dry shampoo is a waterless formula that absorbs dirt and oil from the scalp giving your hair that just washed feeling. Or as we like to call it, the reason you can hit snooze in the morning.

Yes, Batiste products are safe to use across the hair color spectrum! And by washing your hair less, you can help extend your hair color.

Sorry, it's not recommended as it could damage extensions or weaves.

Batiste is for any type of hair that becomes oily between washes...just pick the scent that you love best, or try a few.

Batiste is sulfate and sodium free, so you can use it without worry on keratin treated hair.

White residue is a perfectly normal part of the dry shampoo process and will disappear quickly. To help reduce the amount of whitness, make sure to shake the can well, spray 12 inches from your roots, massage thoroughly and brush away excess residue.

Pro Tip: Try Batiste Divine Dark, Batiste Beautiful Brunette, or Batiste Brilliant Blonde Dry Shampoo products. Each bottle contains a Hint of Color that helps blend in with your hair shade!.

It’s best to prep your hair with Batiste before you use a styling tool to avoid messing up any of your beautiful wand work.

Spray in the morning when you want to sleep in, at your desk for a midday boost, or take Batiste with you to the gym, on vacation, and beyond. It instantly absorbs oil from the scalp, revitalizes dull and lifeless hair, eliminates odor, and can extend the life of a blowout.
