COLAB Dry Shampoo- review




When I heard that Ruth Crilly was going to release a dry shampoo that promised to have 'sheer invisible' formula I got very excited. As I have naturally oily hair my hair gets greasy quite quickly, which means that I have to wash it every other day. This means that I rely on using dry shampoo on second and a bit on third day hair before I wash it that evening. What does annoy me about other dry shampoos is the chalky, white residue that gathers up in your hair once you've used dry shampoo and even once it's brushed it still feels heavy in your hair and of course if you have darker hair it leaves a grey cast behind it.

I decided to buy two mini versions of the dry shampoo as they were on offer. I bought the Tokyo scent and the New York scent. As expected the Tokyo scent has an oriental fragrance to it, while the New York one has a fruity scent to it. I love both the scents as they both make your hair smell fabulous! On application it's true that you can't see any white residue in the hair which is amazing! You simply spray in the roots, massage it into your hair and then you can either brush it out or you can leave it in as that won't affect the feel or look of the hair. It is so lightweight on the hair that you don't even feel that you are wearing it, it's brilliant. Performance wise it's also really great because it does make your hair feel more refreshed and it definitely absorbs grease well. That said I wouldn't use it if you're on more than 3 day hair as I don't think the light formula of it would be able to hide and prevent loads of grease showing through the hair. Overall I think it's a fab dry shampoo and I will definitely buy a full size version of one of these, probably the Tokyo one as I prefer the scent to that slightly more than the New York one.

I really hope you liked reading this review.
See you soon xxx
