Dry shampoo is honestly a life saver for second day hair or when you simply just don't have time to wash your hair it's a great way to just freshen it up. I had never strayed from Batiste dry shampoo simply because it does it's job and it does it well!
When Colab was released I knew I had to give it a try because of it's claims that is sprayed out sheer and didn't leave a chalky residue. As much as I love Batiste this is something I hate about it, I know they sell coloured ones but quite frankly they are ridiculously priced and they don't do any black ones so I look stupid with sprayed on brown roots throughout my hair. Aswell as that I find my hair does be so horribly chalky so I picked up 2 of the large bottles of Colab and 1 travel sized bottle to try out in 3 different scents.

I ordered these from Superdrug while they were on offer so I got the 200ml bottles for £2.32 each and the 50ml bottle for £1.32.
My first impression of these was that they were awful. I found I was standing in one spot spraying stuff out of the can for 5 minutes just to try to make my hair look well like not second day hair, I didn't like the smell and found that if you did go to close to the hair it did spray out white, I ended up taking my Batiste and spraying it on top as I knew it would work.  So as you can guess it wasn't a great start.
I decided to not rule it out because there was 2 other bottles to try out and maybe they'd be better right?!

Firstly I'll start by saying I'm not a fan of the scent of  'Paris' it actually reminds me of a man's deodorant scent to be honest. The 'New York' scent isn't as bad but again it's not really something I'm fond of. However I do like the scent of the 'London' one which is the original scent which I didn't actually know when buying these so I do wish I did because I would have bought a bigger bottle of it. After using the 3 out for a month and a bit now I will say they do clean your hair (well as far as dry shampoo goes of cleaning your hair) but I do find you use much more product than if you were using a Batiste one. The 'New York' and 'Paris' one I definetly find are weak at helping remove oil from the hair, they do it eventually but I do find that I'm spraying more into my hair than I should actually need until it starts to look clean. 

However this isn't all bad I adore the 'London' one. It definitely cleans your hair like the Batiste and you're not standing for five minutes spraying product in your hair like the other two! The scent is also much nicer. It definitely does not leave your hair chalky because it's a lot thinner than Batiste's formula and it does spray out sheer. Happy days right?! Although when the 3 bottles are gone I'm not entirely sure I'd purchase them again or try the other ones in the range. Another quick thing I will say is I find the 'London' one gives you an insane amount of volume in your hair.

Have you tried the Colab dry shampoos yet, what did you think of them?
