Shampoos for dry hair washing are not new and can often save the day, ie refresh your hair if you haven’t had time to wash it or are on your way. Ordinary dry wash shampoos can leave white marks, especially on my dark hair, so those with dark pigment in them have become my occasional and just a necessary choice.
Now I am no longer afraid of visible white traces, and they also cover the occasional gray hair and growth. Of course, they are used as an SOS aid on days when you don’t get to wash your hair because using it too often can damage your scalp. They all contain odor, alcohol, settle on the scalp, and can disrupt the natural regeneration of the scalp, so moderate use is recommended.
Of the three products tested, two are drugstore and cheaper, and one is pharmaceutical and more expensive.
Batiste dry wash shampoo
The British brand Batiste specializes in the production of dry shampoos (one of their dry shampoos is sold every 3 seconds in the world). Of the three products tested, this one has the darkest shade and is intended for dark brown hair tones. It absorbs quickly, gives hair fullness and refreshes it. There is a good ratio of quality and price, and the scent is powdery fresh.
It is easy to use, like all dry wash shampoos, so that it shakes well and is sprayed on the hair from a distance of 30 centimeters. He massages with his fingers and combs. Due to the dark color of the dry shampoo, your fingers will be colored as well as the combs and brushes. The rice starch in the composition absorbs excess fat from the scalp.

Balea DM dry wash shampoo
Balea is a dm trademark. Traces of color, as with Batista dry shampoo, are inevitable which means that this shampoo will also color your fingers and combs. I suggest protecting your clothes by rolling a towel over your shoulders before spraying your hair. It is a softer shade than Batista dry wash shampoo, and is intended for lighter shades of brown hair. Gives prolonged freshness and volume. Unlike the other two, this one contains only aluminum starch that absorbs fat.
Ingredients: Butane, Propane, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Alcohol Denat., Aqua, Distearyldimonium chloride, Isopropyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Perfume, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499.

Chlorane ultra mild dry shampoo with oat milk
This dry wash shampoo is one of two offered in pharmacies. Both are produced by Klorane, a well-known French brand of hair care products, so they can be expected to have this type of product in line. One is with nettle extract and is for oily hair and scalp, and the other, which I tried, contains oat milk. They added mineral pigments specially adapted to dark hair to the dry wash shampoo. This shampoo is the lightest shades and too bright for my dark brown hair.
Chlorane dry wash shampoo leaves the least traces of color, has a mild scent and a gentle brown hue. However, the price is high, and the packaging is smaller in size. Contains rice and aluminum starch and oats.
Ingredients: Bhutane, Propane, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Isobutane, Alcohol Denat., Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Avena Sativa (Oat), Kernel Oil (Avena Sativa Kernel Oil), Benzyl Salicylate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Cyclodextrance, Perfume) , Hexyl Cinnamal, Iron Oxides CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, Isopropyl Myristate, Limonene, Silica.
