This review goes out to all the lovely ladies and dapper gentleman with busy lifestyles that may not always have time to wash, condition and style your tresses. If you have found yourself strutting around with hair that was less than fresh don’t feel embarrassed! Life happens and when it does there may be no time to stop, drop and shampoo. As someone with long, thick, naturally curly hair that takes hours to cleanse, condition, deep condition and flat iron I know that sometimes you need a product that will keep your do looking great and smelling fresh until you have time to deal with it.
Before Colab Sheer Invisible Dry Shampoo I had only tried a few other product that claimed to do similar things and most left a powdery white resin all over my roots. Since then I have resorted to other time crunch methods like a spritz of perfume (drying alcohol and all) plus a quick tousle before I am out the door.
To use- part your hair into sections, spray on the dry shampoo focusing on the roots and limp areas and then massage or paddle brush to evenly distribute. The product is formulated to absorb oil and refresh the roots to leave hair feeling clean and bouncy with a boost of volume and a lovely fragrance.
One of the big selling points for me is the transparent formula, it does not leave behind a visible residue and there is no stickiness or build-up even when I go on a spraying frenzy. I absolutely love how direct and forceful the nozzle dispenses the product because it blasts your roots with a sharp mist to efficiently get in-between all the strands and target oiliness.
I also love the fragrances; London Classic has notes of bergamot, musk and magnolia whereas Rio Tropical contains papaya, pineapple and cassis without being too sweet or fruity. It can be difficult to describe certain scents but these aromas are definitely stylish, clean, invigorating and perfumed just right for the hair.
As far as dry shampoos go these are some of the best I've tried although I do have to use quite a bit to make a noticeable difference and to get the amazing scents to stick around. Luckily there is a purse sized version for quick touch-ups on the go and you can toss it in your gym bag to use post workout and keep the freshness going all day.
Overall I think this is a great option to spruce up your hair and add a bit of life and vitality when you need a quick fix. The 50 ml shampoo retails for just $5.49 and the 20 ml is $9.99 available at London Drugs, Jean Coutu, Pharamasave and online at FarleyCo by clicking HERE.
