Volumise Your Locks With Batiste


You’ll know the struggle of trying to do something with your hair if you have super thick locks! I have super thick hair so doing anything, literally anything with it takes ample amounts of time. Even drying my hair is always a pain so I usually end up letting it dry naturally to avoid the stress. Letting my hair dry naturally can go one of two ways, it can dry wavy and look ready enough for me to head out or it can dry frizzy and all over the place leaving me looking like Monica from Friends when her hair couldn’t stand the humidity! Styling thick hair isn’t always the easiest of jobs so I’m usually one for grabbing the straighteners and allowing them to battle the frizz. The thing is that when I straighten my hair it can end up looking so straight that the life has been sucked out of it resulting in flat, dull hair. The second worst thing to my frizzy, unkept hair is my dull flat hair!!

I’ve used copious amounts of products that claim to add volume to hair, although with every single one there has been no difference in volume at all! I thought my days of volumised, gorgeous locks were out of the window until I was out shopping and the new Stylist Batiste range caught my attention. Yep, you got me… another volumising product that I immediately took to the till because well, I couldn’t say no to something that might (even if its by the tiniest chance) but might work for me! Behold the Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray. 


This is a volume spray like no other! Its invisible, there is no colour or powder-y residue left behind like their dry shampoo and it has an incredible hold to it without making your hair feel stiff and hard like a hair spray usually does. Its simple to use, spray onto the roots where you want to add volume and then style, simple. This is the first product I have used that actually does what it says it does on the tin and I adore it!

Not every product is perfect so although this XXL spray is a god send it also has its cons! We’ve established that it gives GREAT volume and holds amazingly well, but it can leave your hair feeling a little bit dry. I can’t easily run my fingers through my hair when using the XXL Volume spray and its a lot harder to brush my hair when this product is in the mix BUT to be quite honest these factors are ones I can quite easily look past. This is a product that gives my hair that volume I’ve wanted for so long, at this point those cons couldn’t matter any less!!

Oomph My Locks XXL is 100% a product I’d recommend to anyone looking to give their hair a new lease of life. You should be grabbing yours now! It has to be one of my favourite beauty essentials now… don’t believe how good it is? Try it yourself!

  3. webloglifeblog January 16, 2017 / 3:40 pm

    omg this seems incredible, I always relate my hair to Monica ahaha it’s so joke. I definitely need to try this though, since getting my hair cut so short it just goes into a frizz straight away with the rain!!! Thanks for sharing xxx

    • cheskaaanels January 16, 2017 / 3:49 pm

      Hope it helps let me know if you do try it!!!

  4. Stephanie Merry January 16, 2017 / 3:42 pm

    • cheskaaanels January 16, 2017 / 3:49 pm

      I’m all for Batiste so worth the money!

  5. Ana De-Jesus January 16, 2017 / 3:59 pm

    I love batiste their products are fab and this voluminous spray sounds fantastic.

  6. Sarah Bailey January 16, 2017 / 4:42 pm

    This product sounds fantastic, especially if it doesn’t make your hair feel stiff and hard. I have tried too many products that end up leaving your hair like that.

    • cheskaaanels January 16, 2017 / 4:44 pm

      Ahh me too and its awful isn’t it!!?

    • cheskaaanels January 16, 2017 / 5:45 pm

      Oh no thats a shame!! Well this volume spray isn’t very perfumed like the dry shampoo!

  7. Lynne Harper January 16, 2017 / 6:33 pm

    this post was made for me, my hair is so so thick to the point it drives me insane, i have given up trying now unless its freshly cut and been thinned to death but i want volume, especially on curly days and this product sounds fabulous and exactly what i need, great review lovely x

    • cheskaaanels January 16, 2017 / 8:17 pm

      Awwh thats awesome this is definitely the product for you then!! Let me know if you do try it!

  8. jojo140883 January 16, 2017 / 9:18 pm

    I love this product, I use it all the time to add volume. Love their dry shampoo too, it’s a life saver for me x

  9. hann182014 January 16, 2017 / 9:28 pm

    I have really thick hair too. I can’t let it dry naturally because it will take ages. Not only is it thick, it is very porous too so will take hours and hours to dry x

    • cheskaaanels January 16, 2017 / 10:29 pm

      Oh wow well thank God for hair dryers in that case!

  10. Jodie January 16, 2017 / 9:52 pm

    My hair used to be thick and found it easier to get volume. However my hair has changed and is thinner. I find it so much harder to get volume. I will need to give this a try! x

  11. Hannah Wood January 16, 2017 / 9:53 pm

    Sounds good for some people I have alot of problems with my hair .

  12. countryheartdeb January 16, 2017 / 10:27 pm

    I love Batiste products, their dry shampoo is amazing so will def be giving this a go too! My hair is really thick but i struggle with volume as its so heavy!

    • cheskaaanels January 16, 2017 / 10:31 pm

      This is the case with mine at times too!! This is definitely a great product to try then!!

  13. Steph January 16, 2017 / 10:58 pm

    I really struggle to find a decent volumising spray. I love the toni and guy one but they’ve changed it to be a dry shampoo. I might have to try this

  14. Lilinha Espindula January 16, 2017 / 11:52 pm

    I’ve only tried Batiste dry shampoo and dry conditioner, but this product looks great too! 🙂

  15. Hayley Warren January 17, 2017 / 12:08 am

    I love Batiste dry shampoo but I haven’t tried any of the other products in their range. My hair definitely does’t need any extra volume though!

  16. Rhian Westbury January 17, 2017 / 10:27 am

    I’ve only tried the dry shampoo from Batiste but this looks really good x

  17. jadelikessheep January 17, 2017 / 10:43 am

    My hair drys like that too. It’s so annoying as my hair is thick and curly/wavy also so I end up looking like Hagrid from Harry Potter x

  18. Milly Youngman January 17, 2017 / 1:20 pm

    Batiste have been my go to for dry shampoo since FOREVER, def gonna have to give this one a go!

  19. bruisedpassports January 17, 2017 / 2:05 pm

    This looks amazing. I love Batiste products and frequently use their classic dry shampoo. Will definitely be giving this a go soon 🙂

  20. fashionmommywm January 17, 2017 / 2:13 pm

    I so need this, my hair is often guilty of being on the limp side!

  21. Harriet from Toby & Roo January 17, 2017 / 4:00 pm

    I honestly live for Batiste dry shampoo, if I didn’t have it I’d look a right scruff!

    • cheskaaanels January 17, 2017 / 6:50 pm

      Hahaha I’m with you there!! Its not easy being a mum and keep ourselves looking somewhat okay!!

  22. Dannii January 17, 2017 / 6:23 pm

    I didn’t know that they did a volume product. It’s a shame that it leaves your hair a bit dry though.

    • cheskaaanels January 17, 2017 / 6:50 pm

      Yeah thats the only downfall it feels really dry with it in BUT in terms of volume its great and lasts more than all day!!!

  23. Anosa January 17, 2017 / 9:53 pm

    I have only ever tried one Bastie product and it was a dry shampoo, but loving the sound of this spray for sure

  24. Teresa at RockspringsCrafts January 17, 2017 / 10:23 pm

    I have thick, heavy hair but no curl to it at all. When younger I would have loved a volumizing spray that actually worked. These days I just keep it short so it is under control.

  25. Dena Jayne ☃️ (@denajaynex) January 17, 2017 / 10:43 pm

    I absolutely love Batiste, I love that it not only makes me not need to wash my hair for one more day, but adds volume too! xo

    • cheskaaanels January 18, 2017 / 7:00 pm

      Well this is just a a volumising product not a dry shampoo too but its great!

  26. secretplussizegoddessblog January 18, 2017 / 4:20 pm

    I love Batiste and find it is invaluable when attempting victory rolls and other vintage looking hair. I will be giving this a try and I think it will be even better than the normal product for thickness and taking away some of the slipperiness of my hair when trying to style it.

    • cheskaaanels January 18, 2017 / 7:01 pm

      Ahhh yes I agree!! I’d love to know if you try it and how you get on!!

  27. MELANIE EDJOURIAN January 18, 2017 / 10:42 pm

    I think i am one of the few that doesn’t use these products although anything that helps add volume to hair must be good. I might give that a go.

  28. dearmummyblog January 18, 2017 / 10:45 pm

    This would be great for my mummy! Her hair is a big frizz ball so needs a product to calm it down!

  29. Emma White (@TheRealSupermum) January 19, 2017 / 12:14 am

    I use this a lot and love it – I wouldn’t change the brand now as I know it works and I have very long and thick hair

    • cheskaaanels January 19, 2017 / 10:13 am

      Yaaay its excellent isn’t it I really love using it!

  30. Laura H January 20, 2017 / 5:13 pm

    I haven’t tried this exact one but I’ve tried another of their volumising sprays and it made my hair really stiff! Will have to see if this one is any better..

    • cheskaaanels January 21, 2017 / 9:56 am

      Well this does make it dry but not stiff!

  31. Dani January 20, 2017 / 8:03 pm

    I’m obsessed with Batiste’s dry shampoo, so I definitely need to give some of their other products a go! 🙂
