Review: COLAB Dry Shampoo Sheer & Invisible

Happy April Fools’ Day!

I typically wash my hair every second day but on the days I don’t wash, I like to just tie it up. I don’t think my hair looks greasy, but it just feels just that tiny bit greasy and unclean to me. I tried Batiste a few years ago and it didn’t make any difference to me so I gave it away. Hearing so many good reviews for the COLAB dry shampoos, I decided to pick one up to try, specifically the New York scent from the Sheer & Invisible collection.

After shaking and spraying it on my roots, I see absolutely no residue although there is a slight cooling sensation on the scalp. While massaging the product in, you can feel some of the product there but it gets worked into the roots really easily. The scent of the “New York” one is fruity but a bit strong.

While I like how easy and quick it is to use and that there was absolutely no evidence left behind (except the scent), it also didn’t do anything for me. My hair still didn’t feel clean enough. It still felt like second day hair. The overall look and texture of my hair was also unchanged, but that’s expected since this is from the Sheer & Invisible line, not the Extreme Volume line. Overall it just didn’t really make a difference and my hair looked and felt the same as before after a few minutes. I don’t mind spritzing a bit at the roots every now and then, but maybe dry shampoos are just not for me.
