It took me a long, long time to jump on the dry shampoo band wagon – I was never even a fan of the whole concept, never mind actually using one. I admit it – I was one of those people that washed their hair every, single day (I know, I know. So many people throughout the years have had a go at me!). I say ‘was’ because one sole product has completely changed my daily hair washing habit.
As well as reading a lot of blogs, I watch far too many Youtube videos (who doesn’t nowadays?) and I was so excited when Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends announced that she was launching a dry shampoo range called COLAB.. I picked up the LONDON fragrance (200ml, £3.49 from Superdrug) and honestly, didn’t expect much from it. But now, I am officially a dry shampoo convert!
What I really like is that there is no white powder residue visible on my hair (that was my big problem with some others). The powder is so light, yet it absorbs oil effectively and makes my hair feel so refreshed (okay, probably not the best word but you get the idea). I use a little on second day hair (I admit, sometimes third) and I am really impressed with the results (which says a lot for someone who for the past 18 years has probably washed their hair every single day). It’s not the exact same as washing your hair, but I will give it second place. Oh, and sometimes I use it on just washed hair to give a little bit of texture.
The COLAB range comes in a variety of lovely scents which are all named after cities (nice touch!) but my favourite is LONDON. I can’t even begin to describe the smell but it is lovely!.It is described as being ‘A classic yet contemporary fragrance of bergamot, musk & magnolia‘. I think contemporary is the right word to use here – it just smells like something you would want your hair to smell like!.I have no problem with my hair smelling like this AT ALL!
The dry shampoos are also available in 100ml (perfect for travel) as well as 200ml. I haven’t tried the Extreme Volume Range yet but I am really excited to! They are amazing value for money and honestly, for the job they do, I would happily pay a little more.
