Dry shampoo is the savior of lazy girls worldwide. Living in a hot, humid country I have grown to appreciate the many virtues of dry shampoo. It can soak up excess oiliness, scent your hair and miraculously add volume to any hair type !
I have read some rave reviews of the COLAB dry shampoos so I was quite happy to try it out when one was sent to me. Marketed as a dry shampoo for grown-ups – the COLAB range was created by Ruth Crilly, a model and a beauty insider regular. The invisible formula comes in 5 different scents named after 5 fashion capitols in the world.
The scent I got, Rio is an intensely tropical fragrance (to me it smells like Pineapple juice). But the scent dries down to a very light floral scent after a while. I used it as directed (hold the can about 20cm away and spray on the roots. And then massage it in with fingers). Unlike some dry shampoos, this does not leave any white residue so anyone with brunette/black hair can use this range without worry. The directions also state that the spray can be layered to get more volume. Since my hair is very thick, a few squirts were enough. And after it was massaged in, my hair did have quite a lot of volume. And thankfully, it didn’t dry out my hair or make it more frizzier than usual ! I actually prefer this to my regular dry shampoo brand Batiste, as I find it a bit too drying on my hair (I have curly, dry hair in case you were wondering).
The range is available in 2 sizes – 30 ml (costs 29AED / £2.49) and 200ml ( costs between 39-49AED /£3.49-4.49).
The smaller size would fit nicely in your handbag and would be great little addition to take with you on holidays.
Thank you so much for reading and have a lovely weekend !
