Batiste Hint of Color Dry Shampoo: Great for Tired People and Hospital Stays

Batiste Hint of Color Dry Shampoo Review

I recently bought Batiste Hint of Color Dry Shampoo, $8.99, at Ulta.  Online, I learned that like me, a lot of sick women, have a hard time washing their hair.  Things like fatigue and physical pain can make washing difficult.  Some of us have balance problems in the shower.  I myself use a shower stool (see my page, Disability Tools).  Even being depressed can make it hard to muster the energy to wash one’s hair.  The other use for dry shampoo is traveling and in-patient hospital stays.  When I was diagnosed and hospitalized in 2008 with myasthenia gravis, I wish I knew about Batiste as it is infinitely better than the dry shampoo the hospital gave me.

In my case, with the psoriasis and my fatigue from myasthenia gravis, washing my hair is always an elaborate process.  First comes the special shampoo (for my psoriasis), then the regular shampoo, conditioner, and sometimes straightener.  As I previously blogged about, when my hair isn’t tended to, I look like Hurley from LOST.  There are times when I just can’t go through this elaborate process.  Recently, I was going out with friends and my hair stank.  It looked like a nest.  Even though I knew my friends would understand (they have muscular dystrophy), I still wanted a little dignity.  That was when I tried Batiste for the first time.  I massaged it through my hair while wearing gloves.

Features of Hint of Color Batiste Dry Shampoo:

– 6.3 fluid ounces

– comes in three different colors: Light & Blonde, Medium & Brunette, and Deep & Dark Brown

– does not leave white particles in your hair

– decent smell

– instant fix

When it comes to special occasions like giving a speech at a conference, I’m going to wash my hair the usual way.  But when it comes to other stuff like going to work and traveling with my debate team, I’m going to save myself time and energy by using Batiste.  There’s also a travel size (yay, TSA) that costs $3.99.

–Your Stylist, Jessica Gimeno




Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), endometriosis, asthma, and psoriasis. Most of the organs in my body are affected. I'm dedicated to being a stylist for sick women. As someone who has experienced changes in my appearance due to my 12 meds (including Prednisone), I know how hard it can be when your face and body change overnight. (In fact, because of treatment, between 2008 to 2010, I went from a size 0 to a size 10. While I lost the weight, there are permanent changes in my face and body, which I've grown to appreciate.) My blog will also help women deal with other issues like surviving chronic pain and fatigue. Healthy people can also use this blog as a window into what life with illness is like. Let this website be a place where we can draw strength from each other despite our illnesses and find solutions to our everyday challenges!
