The 100% invisible dry shampoo

I use dry shampoo all the time. For the past year or so I have been following a new hair mantra in order try and improve the health and growth of my hair.

One of my more important rules outlines how many times a week I can wash my hair so as not to damage it too much and wash out the good oils that hair needs to be healthy. I went from washing it every single day, sometimes twice a day, to 2 or 3 times a week. My hair is noticeably happier than it was this time last year however I do struggle with 3rd day greasy hair which isn't a style i'm looking to bring into fashion any time soon.

In order to combat the grease I find myself reaching into the bathroom cupboards and grabbing the dry shampoo. I have tried most of the dry shampoo products on the high street and probably spent way to much of my student loan trying to find one that I can apply and run out the door with no hassle! 'Batiste' is by far my favourite dry shampoo because it works wonders and smells amazing but it isn't great for transforming your greasy locks without applying a white blanket to your head when you're in a rush.

Last week, Ruth Crilly from 'A Model Recommends' released her own range of dry shampoo labelled 'Co-Lab' that is advertised as 100% invisible. And with my search for a sheer dry shampoo's at a halt in the road, I couldn't not try it. And praise the lord my search can come to an end. I used the product for the first time yesterday morning in my desperate rush to get to Uni on time and I didn't get any white or chalky residue! 10 thumbs up for this.

It was actually 4th day hair for me this morning (which isn't something i'd recommend but I had an awful hangover, also something I wouldn't recommend) so you can only imagine the look of my hair when I woke. The dry shampoo worked great, added volume and erased all essence of "I haven't washed my hair in what looks like a week" away.

The only con was that I did have to re-apply before heading out after Uni yesterday afternoon because it had lost it's bounce and volume that it had earlier in the day after the first application. But with hair as disgusting as mine was, the product worked fabulously and will defiantly be a repurchase when I run out.

I think I picked up my bottle for £3.49 in Superdrug which is a very reasonable price for high street dry shampoo's only £1.20 more expensive than Batiste. It is available in 4 different scents 'London', 'New York', 'Rio', 'Tokyo' and 'Paris'. 'London' has gone down very well in my house, it's quite a universal scent, George loved it and said he was smelling it at work all day!

All my love,

  3. I didn't know Ruth had her own range. But again, I'm not really a fan of hers. Good job on washing less! It's definitely better for your hair! My favourite dry shampoo is the Klorane one, it doesn't leave as big a white cast as the Batiste one. I'll have to check out this one next time I'm in LDN though! ;)

  4. I really want to get my hands on one of these. Dry shampoo is a complete life saver at time.



I love hearing what you have to say too...
