New in 2017: Product Reviews!

Hey all! This year i really want to do a lot more product reviews and recommendations. Even if i am not constantly trying new products, i always have very robust opinions on the ones i do try. Since I want to keep things simple, my judgment scale will consist of merely two ratings:

game-changer

Game Changers are products that enhance the Lazy Lady SYSTEMTM! I’m always trying to find shortcuts and get away with the least amount of work possible. If something impresses me enough to be added to my routine, I will give it a Game Changer rating!

Products that fail to impress me will get a Whatever Sheep. This is nothing against sheep: i love sheep in fact, some of my best friends are sheep. Actually the whole point of the Whatever Sheep is that it doesn’t mean this is a bad product, it just means it doesn’t really assist in my chronically lazy ways. If you love a product that gets a Whatever Sheep, that’s totally your call and I’m glad you’ve found something that works for you! This is a free universe, and the Sheep support you!

Anyway with that in mind, let’s get to the reviews!

Product Review: Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo always seemed … like too much trouble for me. Kinda gimmicky, overpriced, that kinda thing. Yeah, oily hair between washes is kinda gross, but i always did figure that by the time it became too much of a problem anyway, i could just take a shower like a normal person.

Howevs, after having to attend too many client meetings this year with a greasy, gross mop of hair (AND IT’S ONLY FEBRUARY), i decided to give it a shot. Here’s my hair profile in case you need to know what you’re up against:

Thickness: Very fine
Moisture profile: Dry
Texture: Big curls
Length: Short
Coloured? Yes.
Other hair habits: Only shower at night, only wash at night, use no product except shampoo and conditioner

I decided to go out and purchase my own can. I reached for Dove at Watson’s, but next to it i saw another brand that sold for cheaper and had more product (6.76 FL OZ vs Dove’s 5). That brand was COLAB, and feeling adventurous I decided to give it a shot.

I got COLAB Sheer + Invisible Dry Shampoo in New York, which promised me a fruity fragrance. I was reading reviews on my phone while deciding whether to get this or Dove, and I must say the reviews online for this product are very mixed. Apparently it was created by a model/blogger (a model blogger? hehe) named Ruth Crilly, who blogs on A Model Recommends, and i guess it found its way over here! Curious, i picked it up. Here’s a very short-winded review:

Application

Comes on in nice, non-jerky puffs of aerosol.

Smell

Just okay, not as fresh and fruity as i expected. A bit chemically, but very clean.

Oil absorption

See for yourself:

These images are undoctored, and straight from my phone. All i did was spray the product into my roots and finger-comb through. I would definitely say that results are V I S I B L E. It’s also a plus that it doesn’t weigh my hair down too much – since my hair is so fine, it tends to be sensitive to chemical sediment, and this product did not show signs of flattening or de-puffing my natural curls.

I think that speaks for itself! I think it’s time to give my rating!

That came as no surprise, did it? If you are in the market for a dry shampoo, give Colab Sheer + Invisible Dry Shampoo (230 PHP at Watson’s) a try!
