Batiste, the world’s favourite dry shampoo brand, unveiled its latest innovations this month, with two brand-new products that provide up to 24-hour freshness. 24H Active and 24H Fresh Dry Shampoos (£4.59 each) are powered by Batiste’s sweat and touch-activated technology. Applied before physical activity, it is designed to release bursts of fragrance spheres when a user breaks into a sweat or touches their hair to keep it smelling fresh.

This is our smartest dry shampoo yet. The technology has not been used yet in the in-between wash category. We understand the challenges of maintaining great hair amidst a hectic lifestyle and are looking to reach users who feel that they must constantly choose between having fresh feeling hair and working out.” Sonila Troka, Batiste UK Marketing Director.

The key to the new range of 24H Dry shampoo lies in its sweat and touch-activated technology. Simply touch your hair or break a sweat and the innovative formula springs into action, releasing a burst of freshness. Once sprayed onto the hair, the scent capsules can be activated at any point throughout the day.  24H Fresh keeps hair smelling freshly-washed all day long. Just brush, flick or zhuzh your locks for hair that smells freshly-washed for up to 24 hours. Scent notes including raspberry, red berry, waterflowers and amber. 24H Active releases bursts of freshness as you exercise, while the supercharged formula absorbs sweat. Scent notes include green apple, nectarine, waterflowers and amber. Available from boots.
