{Rachael Review}... Bag it a Budget?


After reflecting over my past few more serious post's such as stalkers and ex's (Often which go hand in hand in my case) I'm lightening up today with a review...


Now, I hate washing my hair everyday.... It ruins your hair and it's the quickest way to split ends... So I've been training my hair to only need washed every other day, as none of us ladies want split end galore... So I've had to recruit the help of some hair care products to help my hair go the distance...


I don't like the creepy front:
Umberto Giannini Monring After:
Dry Shampoo (Boots £5.61)
When you don't wash your hair that day and you need to go out or something you don't want it to give the look in the slightest that you haven't washed it eg you don't want greasy looking hair - as gross as that sounds... So a couple of years ago now my mum and sister introduced me to the fabulous dry shampoo to help me along with the process...

I've always used the help Batiste Dry Shampoo I was originally given the Hint of Color: Medium & Brunette... Obviously for my hair color, but never really fancied the smell all that much, so I set out to find the  kind that was for me...

I'd always heard good things about a more expensive brand by Umberto Giannini... So when I got a sample of their Morning after, Dry Shampoo, I thought I'd give it a try...



Now it stands in Boots at £5.61 which I think is a bit pricey for dry shampoo, but worth it if it's a star... So filled with optimism, I chose this as the one I took on holiday... Unfortunately it wasn't worth it in my opinion... you need to use a lot of it to see any effect, which at that price kind of makes it bad value for money, the smell wasn't that bad, but I'd say that's the only positive thing about it... After reading soo many good reviews I was awoken to the face the horrible truth, good reviews and price, do not necessarily make a good product... Price lies! - Also if I'm going to be picky and deadly honest I didn't like the drawing style cover of the tin...


So I went back to the old reliable Batiste, but I decided to try and find the type for me...


I tried the Floral, Blush and Cherry but in my honesty, I love flowers, and fruit, but I didn't enjoy the idea or the smell that my hair resembled a florist's shop and bowl of fruit and my disliking of these types went straight out...

My favorite Dry Shampoo YET!
Batiste: Cool & Crisp: Fresh
(Boots £2) 
I sat there and thought, I'm not the girliest and don't want my hair smelling like strawberries, I wanted something that matched my fresh smelling shampoo, as I don't just want my hair to look fresh but smell it... They in hit me like a brick wall - Try the Batiste Cool & Crisp Fresh scent!


I got it and I will NEVER go back... It does exactly what it says on the tin!
I know it was made as the unisex scent, but really then where can a girl like me go wrong?!
It keeps my hair the state I want it in-between washes and I bought it nicely for £1.50 from Superdrug... So my student life style shall not be faltered by the cost it is to make me look beautiful...


So at the end of the day, I found my perfect dry shampoo to keep me going and to avoid the look of greasy roots... I found something incredibly easy to use, low in price, and I'm happy to say I got one of the best budget buys ever and use it all the time...
So if you want something to keep your hair looking fresh, I say don't think you have to wait until payday and go for the budget buy, why wait when the best thing is in your price range now?


All in all I've learnt something with my looking for the perfect thing for my hair:

  • Just because something has a big name and a big price, doesn't make it the best, always go for the cheaper if you can!
