COLAB Dry Shampoo: A Miracle in a Bottle


Monday, 8.00 AM: I am woken up by the sound of the construction outside and immediately reach out for my iPhone. To my surprise, I realize I am running 40 minutes late. I quickly hop into the shower. Due to the lack of time, I decided against washing my hair.


I usually wash my hair every other day but, my little snooze would mean that I’d have to wait till later to wash it. It’s on days like these that I realize what a blessing the dry shampoo really is. It’s basically a shower in a can! I quickly spray on the product and begin styling my hair for the day. Fun fact: Historically, the first use of dry shampoo was recorded as early at the 15th century in Asia, where they used clay powder to help clean oily scalps.


The dry shampoo I use is from the COLAB range from boots. I currently use either (a) COLAB Extreme Volume Dry Shampoo or (b) the COLAB Paradise Dry Shampoo or (b) the COLAB Active Dry Shampoo.


The COLAB Extreme Volume Dry Shampoo is, as the name suggests, a 2-in-1 product. I use this most mornings. The product has a lightweight texture and smells incredible. It leaves no white residue at all which is why I use it. Most dry shampoos don’t often give me the volume that resembles that of my freshly washed hair. I’d recommend this product for moderately oily hair that need volume boost and a clean look.

The COLAB Paradise Dry Shampoo lacks the volumizing feature but is a great dry shampoo. It has a great coconut-like scent and is lightweight too. If I used this in the morning, I’d have to use quite a lot of product, for this reason, I tend to use this product solely for touch ups during the day. This product leaves no white residue at all!


The COLAB Active Dry Shampoo is my go-to product to touch my hair up right before I head to the gym. The product is lightweight and has a fresh, clean scent to it. It leaves no residue either. It leaves my hair soft. Perfect for my mid-length (dyed) blonde hair! I use this on days I just need clean hair (sans the volume boost).


Dry shampoos are essentially a miracle in a bottle that I’ll be eternally gratefully for. Like someone once said, All things are possible with coffee and dry shampoo!
