Beauty is addictive. For me at least. A certain product or formula will spark my interest and then I’m off, on a mission to try every single version so I know which is Best in Class. A one woman judging panel.
The current obsession is dry shampoo. I can pinpoint the catalyst of the quest – running out of Batiste, then buying a disappointing replacement. Then another.Colab Paradise Dry Shampoo is a new one that’s been added to the rotation. I don’t think it is a new formula actually, just a new fragrance, but I’ve yet to try any of the Colab line. Blogger Ruth Crilly, aka A Model Recommends, is a founder of the brand and has excellent taste in all things beauty, so the signs were looking good.
And it is a rather nice one. The big selling point is that it leaves no white residue. In fact it doesn’t leave much residue at all, white or otherwise, compared to other dry shampoos which can be a bit flakey.
Personally, I don’t mind a bit of white residue. As a blonde with not-so-blonde roots, I find it helpful in lifting the colour, blending in the regrowth. But for other hair colours, sure, I can see that it’s not ideal.The Colab Dry Shampoo leaves no residue and does a good job of absorbing oil and giving the roots a little lift. Because it doesn’t leave residue, you can use loads which pleases me no end.
The scent is very nice. I could have more as I enjoy a heavily fragranced beauty product. While in perfume chic granny is more my vibe, when it comes to haircare I like to smell like a piña colada. You know that cheap suncream scent? Yup. Fruity.
Colab Paradise Dry Shampoo is currently on offer at Superdrug, £1.73, get it here.
