COLAB Dry Shampoo: First Impressions



If you're a bit of a beauty enthusiast, you will have heard of COLAB and their haircare products, made famous by the British beauty blogging community and of course their ambassador, Ruth Crilly aka A Model Recommends. It's taken a little while but the brand is finally available in New Zealand. *insert confetti, sparkles and streamers here* I was offered the opportunity to try some of COLAB's products and jumped at the chance. Dry shampoo is my jam as I'm sure you all know. My lack of enthusiasm for hair-washing is well documented around these parts. COLAB had me at Sheer+Invisible and the range of enticing scents, inspired by different cities. As it is still very early days, I thought I'd share my first impressions and musings about the two products I have tried...

COLAB Sheer+Invisible Monaco*-Having dark hair, I want dry shampoo that doesn't look like I've run flour through my hair and called it a day, so the idea of a sheer and invisible dry shampoo was always going to get my stamp of approval. The Monaco fragrance contains top notes of; lemon, bergamot, seaweed, driftwood and cardamom, heart notes of; neroli, petitgrain and mandarin and base notes of; amber, musk, vetiver and oak. I wish this was a body spray or something as well because it smells divine. As for its sheer+invisible qualities, it literally is undetectable in the hair, even before you brush it through. It definitely had my third-day hair looking a lot more refreshed too. 

COLAB Volume London*-As well as the Sheer+Invisible offerings, COLAB have bought their range of Volume dry shampoos to NZ as well. I opted for this in the London fragrance which contains top notes of; bergamot and rose, heart notes of; rose, violet, magnolia and jasmine and base notes of; wood, amber and musk. The volume formula adds a bit of texture and body to the hair, without taking things overboard. It's a little less lightweight than the Sheer+Invisible but it still isn't weighty by any means. I love the mini size of this one too, it's perfect for travel.

COLAB's dry shampoos are available from select stockists in New Zealand now. To find your nearest supplier, call 0508 734 466
