The dry shampoo trend has finally arrived to Portugal! And OMG, it was about time! When I was living in France (two years ago) I was able to buy dry-shampoo at any supermarket. All the regular supermarket shampoo brands sold dry-shampoo, and I could even find Batiste on my grocery store.
Since I've tried it for the first time, I became an huge fan of dry shampoo -- I really hate washing my hair... and having to deal with all the hassle of drying it and straightening it... It just takes too much time! So if there is a product that can make my hair look good for a couple more days, I'm all up for it!
Recently Garnier lunched dry-shampoo and suddenly everybody started talking about dry shampoo. And I got curious! So I went to my local grocery store and picked up a can. Garnier offers 3 scents -- citrus, chamomile and oats. I lightly smelled the 3, and I wasn't really fan of any of the smells, but I ended up picking up the one in the pink bottle. I guess they should all work the same, right?
Anyway, I've been using it for a while now. And it works pretty good. Compared to the Batiste one that I use all the time, I can say that it is pretty much as good. There is, tho, a huge diference between them: the Garner one is much wet than the one from batiste... You can see what I'm saying from the picture. Batiste's product is much more powdery, and if you are not careful with the application it can leave a white residue on your hair. However, I feel like the powder absorves the oils much more effectively. The one from Garnier is wetter and I'm not sure if that's better or worse. I prefer the way the one from Batiste feels, but I honestly cannot say if it is more effective or not.
Overall I still prefer the Batiste one, because of the scent and the texture of the product. It's is harder to come by and I have to buy it online, but is way cheaper. Batiste's 200ml can costs 3,99€ while the Garnier one has 150ml and it costs 7,99€. It's way too expensive.
