A few weeks ago Batiste launched their coconut scented dry shampoo - Tropical (Coconut & Exotic). I read a lot of positive reviews on it, plus I am a huge fan of everything coconut scented so I went straight ahead to buy it. But I am so disappointed! First, I was looking for it in a few DM stores but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Second, when I finally found it in DM there weren’t any testers available so I bought it without testing it because I thought that coconut won’t disappoint me. But it did!! The scent isn’t coconut or tropical at all – well, there is something coconut-y in it but it’s quite chemical and suffocate, it smells like a cheap deodorant – undefined kind of a sweet smell. It’s good that it doesn’t stay in your hair after spraying but the effect disappoints me too
– this is the only dry shampoo that I see in my hair after spraying. No matter how far I spray it’s visible and it leaves a thin, visible film over my hair which pisses me off! Due to the film the hair doesn’t look clean - well, it looks a bit better from before but the effect isn’t close to the Fresh one. Tropical is the only dry shampoo I feel in my hair after spraying – it’s not just leaving a film over my hair but whenever I touch my hair I feel the dry shampoo in my fingers. Disgusting!
I don't recommend this one even if you like the scent.
