Dry shampoos are a rare commodity in the Philippines. I guess it hasn’t gained much traction since we usually take showers in the morning and not at night. However, I have used some dry shampoos when I was still living in Chicago. It was a lifesaver for days when I feel too lazy to wash my hair, or I’m just late for work. My favorite was the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo, but Co Lab can easily take the cake!
A lot of dry shampoos claim to have a sheer and invisible formula, but still, most of them leave a white residue. Co Lab is one of the exceptions! Not only does it not leave any white powdery tracks on your hair, it also smells amazing!
There are six different scents so far: Rio, New York, London, Paris, Monaco and Tokyo. All fragrances are inspired by their cities. I tried Rio, Monaco and New York. Out of all of them, Monaco has the freshest and most long-lasting scent. A mixture of white musk and the sea, it reminds me of Angel’s Breath, a cologne I used to have when I was in high school.
It’s also easy to use. Just shake, spray and massage! Lift your hair in sections, and remember to focus on your scalp so it can soak up the excess oil with ease. Don’t brush your hair right away. Give the product a chance to work its magic, and then start combing through.
The Co Lab dry shampoos also come in two sizes: 50 ml and 200 ml. The 50 ml one is the perfect size to bring around in your bag, especially your gym bag. Just spritz it before you work out, and whenever you need to freshen up! The only downside is that it doesn’t last long. I finished the small bottle within 7-8 uses.
- SMELLS AMAZING.
- Doesn’t leave a white residue like most dry shampoos.
- Comes in two sizes: one for the bathroom and one for the road.
- Small bottle doesn’t contain much product! 😦
- Max usage of two days before hair becomes oily and limp.
Overall, I think Co Lab is a great dry shampoo. Definitely better than most in the market. If you have yet to try it, buy the 50 ml first. I’m sure you’ll want to come back to the store and get the bigger one to add to your hair essentials.
