Move over, dry shampoo: cleansing foam is here

Dry shampoo is something I haven’t had much luck with. I’ve tried a few different types from various brands in hopes of being able to push washing my hair a little longer, but it seems as though every one I try either doesn’t do much for me, or it somehow makes my hair look worse, if that’s even possible.

While browsing through the shampoo aisle in Shoppers Drugmart a few days ago, I came across a new product that caught my eye – Batiste’s Waterless Cleansing Foam with coconut milk – and I decided to give it a whirl.

Am I ever glad I did.

While a foam product may not seem like the most effective option to combat greasy hair, I can say with utmost certainty that this formulation beats the spray formulations of most dry shampoos any day of the week. According to its product description on Batiste’s website, “this cloud-like coconut foam enhances shine, and works best on normal or dry and curly hair— or anyone whose locks are a little lackluster. Creamy coconut milk adds dimension for hair that looks and feels fresh. Goes on wet and dries ASAP without messing up your style.”

All this stuff needs is a good shake, a turn upside down to dispense the product into your hands, and once worked through hair it dries in 60 seconds. It is inexpensive, refreshing, and it doesn’t leave behind any white residue like a majority of dry shampoos do.

I picked up the coconut milk variation of Batiste’s Waterless Cleansing Foam as it aims to cleanse hair and add shine, but there are three other variations of the product – cactus water, hibiscus root, and almond oil, all of which are specifically altered to suit the specific needs of different types of hair.

If you’re someone who uses dry shampoo, I cannot recommend this stuff enough. You may never go back to dry shampoo again.
