COLAB Active Dry Shampoo

In Beauty by Gemma Tomlinson10 Comments


As many of you already know from this rave, COLAB sheer and invisible is pretty much the only dry shampoo I use. Made by the lovely Ruth Crilly, it’s cruelty free, works well and doesn’t leave you feeling like your hair is laden with product. I use the London scent religiously, but there’s a new kid on the block, COLAB Active, and it might just be the perfect summer fling.

With a super fresh scent, this new Active version offers UV protection, pollution protection and is conditioning, giving hair a bit of a helping hand through the hotter months. If you wash your hair a lot, either because you’re at the gym, you get sweatier in this weather (happens to the best of us) or you’re lucky enough to be going on holiday and hopping in and out of the water, this one might just be for you.

I tend to use the London scent daily (even if my hair is clean) since I love the fragrance and I have an annoying habit of touching the front section of my ‘do a lot so using a bit of COLAB keeps it looking freshly washed at all times. COLAB active now lives in my gym bag for times when I need a little more from a dry shampoo.

COLAB Active is £3.99 for 200ml.

  • I would love to give this a go! I have always stuck with my Batiste, either haven’t found anything else as good or others are too expensive!
    I’m so shocked that it is such an affordable product too – looks much more expensive with the branding!
