I had no idea what dry shampoos were before I landed on the beauty world. Now they are starting to be one of the essentials.
I have an oily scalp and dry ends that’s why I wash it every other day. Dry shampoos come in on days between washes so once I hit it the 3-day mark, my hair would be impossibly greasy and itchy.
This series will feature different brands of dry shampoos, each with detailed reviews, and a score out of 5.
First on the roster…
COLAB Sheer + Invisible Dry Shampoo London 200ml
Musky. Smells a bit like chemicals but not too strong. It does have the usual smell like all the dry shampoos.
TOP: Bergamot & Rose
HEART: Rose, Violet, Magnolia & Jasmine
BASE: Woody, Amber & Musk
The scent stays on all day and keeps hair smelling fresh.
OIL ABSORBING POWER
As the label says, it comes out sheer and invisible unlike other dry shampoos that leave a white cast/powdery film on the roots. Having said that, it also doesn’t leave that residue that usually makes it itchy and uncomfortable.
I love this dry shampoo because it’s very effective on making my hair feel fresh, clean and non-greasy. It’s light-weight and it feels like I just washed my hair.

If you live in Toronto, you can get this at Rexall, some Shoppers Drug Mart, and at Phoenix Beauty Store in Pacific Mall.
Overall, I give this dry shampoo a score of 4.5/5 because it is great and does the job of keeping my hair fresh without weighing it down or leaving so much dry shampoo residue. I deducted 0.5 just because of the scent. I don’t love it but I don’t hate it either. I have yet to try other scents from the COLAB line and maybe give this a 5 when I find my perfect scent.
Stay tuned to see what’s next on the Dry Shampoo Series!
