Batiste Stylist Range | XXL Volume, Heat & Shine

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and are having a fabulous Easter weekend so far! I thought today I would share with you two of my current hair styling product obsessions, both by one of my favourite high-street brands Batiste! This post has been a long time coming and honestly I have no idea why I have never spoken about Batiste on my blog before as their dry shampoo is one of my holy grail products that I use on a daily basis. I think I have tried pretty much every single variation that Batiste offer, however, the two that I constantly repurchase are the XXL Volume and the Heavenly Volume...can you tell I love adding some umph to my locks?!

As you will know, Batiste are known for their hero dry shampoo products, however, they have now decided to step up their game and introduce a new stylist range to their product wardrobe which consists of 6 products. The new line-up consists of a Frizz Tamer, XXL Plumping Powder, Hairspray, Texturizing Spray, Heat & Shine Spray* and XXL Volume Spray*. The new stylist range is all about instant results for quick and easy styling transformations. I was recently sent two products from the new line to try out and it has made me fall head over heels in love with Batiste all over again. Each product in the line comes in under £5, are great quality, are long-lasting and actually, do what they say on the bottle.

First up we have the XXL Volume Spray* which I believe is a new and improved formulation of their previous XXL Volume Dry Shampoo, which was one of my ultimate favourites. You can literally take your hair to new heights with this instant backcomb spray! If you are looking for sky-high styles then this is the perfect product for you. The new formulation is infused with Keratin to help strengthen and Inca Inchi Oil to nourish, so you can style away knowing your big do will stay healthy too. This product definitely has a lighter feel to it in comparison to the previous XXL Volume Spray which is a fabulous touch. I love using this product on freshly washed hair (when my hair is so clean that it clings to my face and it won't behave haha) and also on second-day and sometimes third-day hair too (shhh) - it helps add the perfect amount of volume without making your hair feel crunchy, powdery or like you need to wash it all over again. I have super long and thick hair so finding a product like this that helps add volume is rare - I absolutely love this one!

The second product I had the opportunity to try was the Heat & Shine Spray* - a fabulous new product to the range. You can keep your locks looking hot without the heat damage with this clever 2-in-1 heat protectant and shine spray. According to Batiste this spray can protect your hair up to 230°c and can shielf your hair from pretty much every styling tool out there. This multi-functional hair hero is specially developed for dry (not damp) hair, so you can heat style and add a sleek mirror shine finish in no time at all. Once your hair is styled you can re-use the spray to add some more shine, however, I would suggest using this sparingly and only mist mid-length downwards to avoid creating greasy roots. When it comes to my hair I am not super extravagant on a daily basis, honestly, I get physically and emotionally drained when I have to wash and style my hair, it is always a task haha...but I do love freshly washed and styled hair. Previously, I very rarely (if ever) used a heat protectant, however, since I was introduced to the new Heat & Shine Spray I have been using it non-stop. I have undergone a hair routine transformation and I have incorporated a wide range of new products so if this is something you would like to see then please let me know.

Overall, I have been left extremely impressed with the new Stylist range and I can't wait to give a few other products from the line-up a try - the Hairspray and Texturizing Spray are calling my name. Also, Boots currently have an offer running on Batiste (there is always some kind of offer on) - they are currently offering 3-for-2 on all haircare products so if you are looking at giving one of the new products a try or if you are looking to stock up on your favourites then this would be the perfect time.
