Review: COLAB Dry Shampoo

The craze of dry shampoo really took off this year with many new releases from different brands. One in particular caught my eye and I have been testing it for a few months. It is the COLAB Dry Shampoo Extreme Volume London. This range of dry shampoo from COLAB was made with Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends (a British model turned beauty blogger). For each fragrance there are two formulas: Sheer + Invisible and Extreme Volume. I have been using the Extreme Volume in the London scent.

COLAB Dry Shampoo Extreme Volume London

Pros: This dry shampoo does not leave white chalky substance in my hair! Yay! My hair does not feel gritty or chalky at all after using this and there is no white residue visible in my hair. It also smells great. I like using this the night before, spraying it into my roots and just leaving it, not working it into the hair. This gives it time to sink in and get to work and I think this works well for me.

Cons: Can leave my hair knotty. It does give volume, but in hindsight, with my thick hair, I really don’t need volume. So it tends to just make my hair more prone to knots when I rake my fingers through my hair to move the product about. That is another reason I use it the night before and spray it in, not moving it about.

CF: Yes, the COLAB site states it does not test their products on animals.

Available: In Australia it is available at most chemists (including Priceline) and online at

Price: Between AUD$8 and $12.

Rating: 7/10

I would love to try the Sheer + Invisible formula next time to see if that works better for my thick hair. Have you tried this product? What did you think? Is there another dry shampoo you love more? Please feel free to comment below.
Thanks for reading, Christina xo
