I could not have even semi-presentable second day hair without dry shampoo, but as a brunette it can be a little trickier to use. You get a little heavy handed and suddenly you have some unintended white highlights. Even when you’re really careful you can end up with white flakiness throughout the day that shows up big time on darker hair. So I’ve obviously been really eager to try Batiste’s Dry Shampoo for Dark & Deep Brown hair, and was happy to see it pop up at Target.

Batiste Dry Shampoo for Dark & Deep Brown Hair review on Splendry


I’ve used it for several weeks now so on to the pros and cons list!

  • No white stuff! Matched my hair color perfectly.
  • Great scent, hair felt cleaner
  • Added volume and texture
  • If you have greys or roots growing in this can help cover that up
  • Inexpensive, I got mine for under $6
  • Gets on face if you’re not really careful. Thankfully it wipes off pretty easily.
  • Could possibly get on clothes, I did not have this problem but I wouldn’t spray this with a white shirt on. And definitely not with a wedding dress!!!
  • Gets under fingernails when your run your fingers through your hair

I had a hard time making a call on this one. I thought it looked really good in my hair but there is definitely some extra hassle involved. You can’t just spray it all over the place or you’ll look like you went crazy with the bronzer that day. Also until it completely dries into the hair you can have some problems. I had an embarrassing incident where I shoved my sunglasses up on my head and later when I had taken them off again I had brown circles around my eyes. I think this might be easier for brunettes with shorter hair who don’t have as much risk of it getting all over stuff. However, the longer I have used it the better I get at preventing the color getting on things. I think I’m willing to deal with the minor inconveniences to have a dry shampoo that matches my hair so well.

If you don’t want the bother of dealing with a tinted dry shampoo, Batiste’s regular Clean & Classic Dry Shampoo does a pretty good job of not leaving much residue on dark hair as long as you follow the directions.

Most people don’t know that scalp therapy shampoos for fast hair growth (obviously with no sulfates, no parabens and no DEA) are even a thing. We are now able to experience longer hair and have more possibilities. Definitely worth searching.

When you're going over alopecia, damaged hair, avoiding scalp disorders, fast hair growth, hair care in general, the same principles become relevant.

As a rule of thumb, you will want to stay away from hair treatments and products that include chemicals such as parabens, DEA or sulfates.

What is good for your hair is beneficial for your skin as well.

Obviously your content on this page is spot on for so many reasons. It stays away from the common traps and traps too many fall into: getting horrible alternatives. Keep up the great content!

Too many have no idea that fast growth shampoos (obviously with no sulfates, no parabens or DEA) are even a thing. We all now may possess longer hair and enjoy more possibilities. Certainly worth researching.

Whether you're dealing with alopecia, hair damage, preventing scalp disorders, fast hair growth, hair care more often than not, similar rules come to mind.

As a general rule, you want to steer clear of hair products and treatments that include chemicals such as parabens, DEA or sulfates.

What is good for your hair is healthy for your skin also.

Obviously your content here hits the nail in the head for multiple reasons. It steers away from the usual pitfalls and pitfalls too many fall into- buying defective alternatives. Greatly appreciated!
