DRUGSTORE DRY SHAMPOO FACE-OFF - BATISTE VS SOAP & GLORY



I confess – I am a dry shampoo addict. There I’ve said it. My hair has a mind of its own; it loves to get all greasy and oily on me and I do not like to wash my hair daily. We all know that is not advisable as it strips your hair of its natural oils making it look dull and less shiny; and I love me some shiny hair.


I prefer washing my hair with a gap of 2 to 3 days (Yes. I know it might sound gross to some) but I’ve noticed a difference in my hair quality. Dry Shampoo for me is like a magic wand – poof poof and voila; I have clean, non-greasy, presentable hair in minutes. It is a saviour for managing post gym hair when I have no time for a hair wash or simply when I want to lengthen the time between hair washes. 


Being a creature of habit, I have always used Batiste Dry Shampoo Clean & Classic Original with the occasional L’oreal Dry shampoo here and there. So, it is a first for me to try the Batiste Dry Shampoo in Fruity & Cheeky Cherry and Oh my word I absolutely love it. No doubt Batiste is the No 1 dry shampoo in the UK. It does what it claims. I also picked up a travel size of The Rushover Scent-sational Dry Shampoo by Soap and Glory which I am trying for the first time.


My thoughts on Batiste Dry Shampoo Fruity & Cheeky Cherry
  • Gets rid of the oily, greasiness in the hair.
  • Does not leave a white cast or chalky residue in the hair.
  • Leaves hair feeling clean, fresh, adds body and texture.
  • The cherry fragrance is refreshing and not overpowering. It lingers on for a while and gradually fades away leaving a clean fragrance.
  • Affordable. 

My thoughts on The Rushover Scent-sational Dry Shampoo by Soap and Glory
  • Gets rid of all the oil and grease in the hair. Hair feels clean and fresh.
  • Does not leave a white cast or chalky residue (If you follow the instructions to the T as mentioned on the can).
  • Fragrance is trademark soap and glory scent.
  • Felt like the fragrance was following me around. A tad overpowering for my taste.
  • Affordable.
The Rushover Scent-sational by Soap and Glory is a good option and as the name suggests it does have a lingering sensational scent. But, if I must choose I would go for Batiste Cherry Dry shampoo.


Batiste Fruity & Cheeky Dry Shampoo is available in Boots in the UAE for 30dhs (200 ml can).
Batiste Dry Shampoos are also available online on Nykaa & Amazon in India.
The Rushover Scent-sational Dry Shampoo by Soap and Glory available in Boots for 15dhs (50ml can).
