Batiste Launch NEW Speed It Up Blowdry Range

Batiste Speed It Up Review by UK Plus Size Beauty Blogger WhatLauraLoves

If you’re anything like me then you’ll have a million and one things to do but not enough hours in the day to do them in.  Prioritising tasks helps massively throughout the day and cutting your time each morning by being organised, having your outfit picked out and having a speedy beauty routine does too.

There are days when you’re going to need to blowdry your hair, be it before you go to bed or before you head out the door but when it comes to this mundane task, I imagine I’m speaking for all of us when I say that its the one beauty chore we hate doing.

I’d love to be able to leave my hair to dry naturally every time that I wash it as avoiding heat is good for hair health but my natural locks, as opposed to my gorgeous HJ Extensions, dry so frizzy unless I use a hair dryer.  When I know that I’m not going to be going out and about, I’ll leave my hair to dry naturally but otherwise, I’ll blow dry it which is a good 90% of the time.

Thankfully, budget hair favourites Batiste, have created a time saving hair hero in the form of their new blow dry sprays.

Batiste Speed It Up accelerates the process of blowdrying your hair, making it speedier and less tedious which means that you have more time to focus on smashing your to-do list for the day or getting an extra half an hour of precious sleep.

There are three to choose from, Frizz Taming, Smoothing and Shine, so you can pick the one that best suits the needs of your hair.

Let’s take a closer look…
FRIZZ TAMING: Formulated with Tamanu Oil to defrizz your locks
SMOOTHING: Containing nourishing Baobab Oil smooth out your hair from root to tip
SHINE: Enriched with Ginseng to give you hair thats swish-ably shiny and lustrous.

They’re all really easy to use; simply towel dry your hair (squeeze, don’t rub girls!) then spritz your chosen spray lightly all over your hair from a distance while its damp and brush through to reduce your drying time by up to 30%!

I used Shine before I blowdried and styled my hair for this Instagram photo and  I love the added glisten that it gave my blonde hair which can often look dry.

The Batiste Speed It Up range also acts as a heat protection spray as it has built in protection within the formula to shield the hair from heat damage up to 230°c.  Since I do highlight and lowlight my hair, I want to protect my locks from as much further damage as possible so I’m always looking for products to help me with that, especially on the ends of my hair where it can be prone to breakage and split ends.

If you want to boost your blowdry time like I have with the Batiste Speed It Up range, its available from Boots now!

    This range sounds interesting. I've never used anything with Tamanu Oil to help with the frizz. It's great they have heat protection.

    Batiste do some great products, and I always think they smell great. These are a fab idea, particularly with the heat protection.

    I love Batiste for their Dry Shampoo but I love the sound of these too, especially Frizz Tamer. I invested in a better hairdryer to save on drying time and it went from taking me around half hour to less than 10 minutes

    These sound really interesting! I am normally a 'let it dry naturally' kind of gal. But these would be great if your pressed for time!

    Ooooh these sound great – I don't normally blow dry my hair but the frizz ease one sounds perfect. Kaz
