After famous Schwarzkopf brand of spray-on dry shampoo, which makes ones hair far more greasy and unkempt than it ever was before. Often considered a good idea for backpackers, who can't wash their hair properly, its actual use never fails to come as a nasty surprise.

2. "That advice you gave to Belinda, that was so batiste. She hasn't stopped crying since."
