It has been a long time since I have talked about a dry shampoo. That’s because I’m not really impressed by a whole lot of them. I truly did not think I would find a new favourite since the Finesse dry shampoo (review), but then COLAB showed up. In collaboration with model and blogger, Ruth Crilly, COLAB Dry Shampoo both smells amazing (like an actual fragrance!) and WORKS to keep hair from feeling “lived in”. They also spray clear and do not leave a heavy residue behind (dark-haired beauties celebrate!).This debut collection comes in two scents: Rio*($5.49 CDN for 50mL/$9.99CDN for 200mL), a tropical blend of papaya, pineapple and heart of cassis and London*, a blend of bergamot, musk and magnolia. London won me over immediately and was the first can I completely finished! I loved how sophisticated and refreshing the scent was and may have gone a little crazy with the spraying at times…I finished Rio shortly after and just 2 days ago, ran out and bought the full size! I cannot get enough of this stuff!
Final Verdict: While these dry shampoos don’t add a ton of volume to your hair, they do a great job of absorbing oil right at the root. There were days when I would forget that I hadn’t washed my hair because my roots still looked fresh. The scent of London is to die for and words cannot convey how grateful my nose is for coming into contact with this scent. I just LOVE it. I just wish the full size wasn’t quite so expensive because I powered through both of these bottles fairly quickly. Although, that may have been because I was having a little too much fun with my dry shampoos! If you love the spray type of dry shampoo, oh God, you have GOT to give these COLAB ones a try!
COLAB is available at London Drugs, Jean Coutu, Lawtons and select Pharmasaves and PharmaChoice.
