You’d have to have been living under a rock if you didn’t hear about Ruth Crilly’s latest launch of Colab Dry Shampoo. Texturising and grease-preventative products have been all the rage the past year, and anything that prolongs hair washing time is a god-send in my view.
I always give my honest opinion when reviewing products, so I was hoping to fall in love with Colab as I’m such a big fan of Ruth’s blog and videos. I’m relieved to say that I’ve really been loving using this dry shampoo! I was sceptical that there’d be a good enough alternative to the Batiste formula at a high-street priceline, but I’ve been proven wrong.
I think Colab rivals Batiste as it leaves less of a white casting and residue in your hair. Once you’ve sprayed it in and lightly run your hands through, you can’t even feel that it’s there. I found that it mattified my roots without being irritating to the scalp, which I usually have trouble with.
Another advantage of the formula is the fragrance. Normally, dry shampoo products have an unsophisticated sickly scent or smell like clinical soap. I’m gonna make the bold claim that the Colab London scent is sexy. People have actually complimented me on the smell of my (unwashed) hair.
The only draw-back I can think of is that the dry shampoo doesn’t give much texture to the hair. I like to use dry shampoo on days where I have to go out just after I’ve washed my hair. This usually means it’s a bit fluffy and flat and other dry shampoos have been good for injecting some volume and grit. Having said this, my main use of dry shampoo is to remove grease, and Colab is perfect for combating this problem.
I’d urge you all to pick up some Colab if you are a lazy hair washer or beauty addict like me! For £2-3.50 you can’t really go wrong. Many congratulations to Ruth and her new line and it’s nice to see a blogger doing so well for themselves 🙂
Colab is definitely one of my favourite hair-related launches of the year. Comment below what your holy grail hair product is, because I’d love to check more out!
