Review - Colab Dry Shampoo


I like to think of myself as a kind of high street dry shampoo connoisseur. There honestly isn't many I haven't tried, and whenever I see a new one, it's straight in to my basket. Very few have won me over though because of they just really don't deliver and I'm normally just go back to my old friend, Batiste. When Ruth Crilly announced the launch of her dry shampoo line, Colab, I did a little silent squeal of excitement. Her video about the launch made me want to run out and buy it there and then. It was clearly a product that had been created with a lot of thought and consideration. It was basically everything I wanted from a dry shampoo and more!

Colab Dry Shampoo

Colab Dry Shampoo

All together there are five scents in the Colab Dry Shampoo range and Tokyo is by far my favourite. It's girly, sweet and fresh, an absolutely perfect scent for this time of year and keeps your locks smelling fresh all day. It's just divine. The formula itself is extremely lightweight and has a real 'barely there' feel. Having quite dark hair I quite often find that dry shampoos leave a kid of white sheen to my hair, making it very apparent that I've used it. However, Colab does no such thing. It's completely and utterly invisible in the hair. No white sheen, no powdery look, no mattifying finish.

I tend to reach out for a dry shampoo when my hair is on it's third or forth day and in need of a bit of a pick me up. By these days it's usually looking a little limp and lacking in volume. To give my hair that much needed boost I've been using it directly on the roots and then throughout the lengths to create texture, which works wonders! It's honestly so lightweight but 100% does the job. It gets rid of any slightly greasy areas that form (perils of having fine hair) and puts the volume back in. Oh, and as it's completely invisible you don't even need to brush it out,just a quick ruffle with your fingers and jobs done! For a dry shampoo that only retails at £3.49 it's a must have hair product!

Have you tried out this dry shampoo yet?
