A Good Hair Day

Christine Karan finds a haircare product for busy, multi-tasking women with lives constantly on the go.



We live in times when women have excelled in the art of the work-life balance. While many men may wonder how they do it with such aplomb, women also squeeze in the time to keep themselves looking great too, which is an essential part of our lifestyles.

As a busy woman of today, who travels frequently with work and in my leisure time, I make a conscientious effort to look after myself. But I don’t have the time to spend hours in a salon or at a spa so I need some quick-fix solutions; things that will give me the same level of relaxation and results that a spa would give me but from the comfort of my own home.

That said, haircare is very much an important item on my list. I always make sure I follow the routine of oiling, washing, trimming, and having occasional haircuts. I do have a few products in my haircare kit for quick styling and to keep my wild, frizzy mane intact and looking impeccable at conferences or parties.

One product I have recently fallen in love with is Batiste Dry Shampoo. Yes, just like you I was a bit confused at the start; not because of the name but how it would really help me in a hot and humid place like Muscat.

Initially sceptical, I tried it out but to my surprise, the Batiste Dry Shampoo not only moisturised and absorbed all the grease but also gave my hair volume. It’s a product that is perfect for career women like me who can’t find time to wash their hair every two days.

Batiste Dry Shampoo has come as something of a saviour for me.  All I have to do is shake, spray a couple of shots on my hair roots, massage it in and style my hair. My curly mane looks luscious, bouncy and shiny, and it’s all done and ready in under three minutes. It gives an instant boost to the hair and adds texture and body for styling.

It is also my perfect companion. When travelling, all I need is just one handy bottle of Batiste Dry Shampoo. It acts as both a revitaliser and a styling product.

Batiste Dry Shampoo comes in four fragrances; blush, floral, cherry, oriental and original. You will find it in stores in Oman such as Carrefour, Boots and LuLu.

With several new products coming out to help us look better and make our lives easier every day, dry shampoo products like are innovative, and can be smart tools to help busy woman take on their day with elegance and beauty. If you use it, I’m sure your hair won’t look dull and greasy any more – and will take the pain out of shampooing your locks on a daily basis!
