I’m always fond of the idea of dry shampoo, it supposes to cut down the number of times you have to wash the hairs and adds extra volume, which sounds awesome for us lazy girls right? But let me tell you, finding a good dry shampoo is not an easy task at all: some does nothing, some irritates the scalp, some leaves white cast, some smells horrible… The list goes on and on. I was at the edge of giving up the search altogether, until I spotted the mini CoLab dry shampoo in Watsons, and decided to give dry shampoo one last try.
I’m so glad I did. It’s the first dry shampoo I have ever tried that does exactly what it supposes to do. I usually use it on the second day or third day hair, at that point, my scalp is getting itchy and greasy, so for it last one more day without washing, I’ll spray the CoLab dry shampoo to the roots of my hair pretty generously, massage it in for a good 20 seconds. A few minutes later, it sucks out all the excess oil (that’s how I felt), leaving my scalp and hairs feeling fresh and clean again (the freshness lasts all day long), while adding some extra volume, no white cast, no sticky residue. Pretty impressive right? Quite a few times, people were asking me what shampoo and conditioner I was using, because it looks like I just spent an hour did a professional blowout, while in fact, it’s just greasy second day or third day hair with some CoLab dry shampoo!
This dry shampoo is co-developed with one of my favorite YouTubers – Ruth Crilly (a model recommends). I have heard a lot of good reviews about this product on YouTube and Instagram, but always had my doubt – not because I don’t trust YouTubers (if you know the amount of products I have purchased because of their recommendation, you will know it’s quite the opposite!), but I’m just extremely picky when it comes to dry shampoo. So I was very, very, very excited (insert your happy dance emoji here) when I found out this one actually does wonders on my hairs, and have been traveling everywhere with it ever since. Oh, and it’s worth mentioning that it’s also incredibly affordable, I believe it’s around $6 SGD for a small can – super wallet friendly.
It’s not widely available in every Watsons though, I have only seen a small quantity of them in the Watsons inside Takashimaya mall. If you are in the same boat as I was before (i.e. tired of the search and wondering if a good dry shampoo is just a mystery?), worth going all the way to Takashimaya and pick one up. I hope they will continue have it there, otherwise, I may have to ask my UK friends to ship a case of them to me, I’m that serious and committed to it…
