CoLab Dry Shampoo in South Africa

CoLab Dry Shampoo in South Africa

The excitement I felt when I found these dry shampoo’s in a good ol’ Clicks isle was tangible.  I’m pretty sure I squealed (I feel like I’ve written this way too many times – note to self: stop squealing!) at the sight of it.  A shop assistant definitely gave me the stink-eye but I didn’t even take notice.  If you aren’t aware of my love for Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup then read this, but if you do, you know that I immediately add any of her recommendations to my ‘to buy’ list.

CoLab dry shampoo was created by a UK based Beauty Blogger & YouTuber who by now has rescued many-a-bad hair days.  She created this product because she was tired of having to use dry shampoo’s that leaves your hair feeling chalky and looking like dandruff central.  And I’m happy to say that this product actually does what it says on the can.

I am a big lover of dry shampoo for between washes (my hair gets dirty like a day after I wash it and god for bid I curl it – dirty the day of styling) or a little volume at the roots.  There is absolutely no residue and chalking white powder when you spray the product into your hair.

I will say though that the volume version does leave the dreaded white dust, but I think that’s because it needs a bit more grit for the volume.

The London scent is my absolute favourite of them all.  You can pick these up at Clicks for about R80 – R100 and they’re currently running a 3 for 2 on CoLab so it’s a good time to try them out.  They also have sweet little mini’s which fit perfectly in your bag or cubbyhole – always handy!

If you try these let me know what you think.

Hey Le’Chelle, I have never used dry shampoo before, but I have extremely oily hair. Which one of these would be good to use and how do you use it?

Hi Sheri-Leigh,

The CoLab dry shampoo is good but if you have thick or curly hair it doesn’t work as well.
You simply spray it into your hair and either brush it through or just use your fingers to rub it in. It’s super easy!
