R+Co DEATH VALLEY Dry Shampoo

This dry shampoo will do more than clean up your hair; it'll lend it a kind of untamed texture—not unlike the landscape from which it takes its name. Just a few sprays will absorb excess oil, increase volume, and add definition.

lesson learned: don't judge a book by it's cover
Purchased

R + Co. has some real winners in their beautifully packaged hair care family... sadly, the Death Valley Dry Shampoo is not one of them. I'm a sucker for packaging and $29 for 6.3 oz didn't seem completely unreasonable among the other dry shampoos on Birchbox. Upon first application, I was immediately taken aback by the unappealing musty scent of the product. I forged on only to be disappointed by the product's consistency- it made my hair pretty unmanageable and stiff and did not noticeably "zap" any of the excess oil in my day-2 hair. I suppose this is a decent texturizing spray and helps add some volume to buns/updos, but I would never repurchase this product for it's intended use as a dry shampoo. Overall, don't buy this. There are way better products out there, like the amika Perk Up and drybar Detox dry shampoos, which are my tried and true favorites!

Smells good but not a great dry shampoo
Purchased

Background: I have dirty blonde, fine in texture, but thick (as in I have a lot of it!) hair.

I was super excited about this dry shampoo based on the other reviews.I work out every weekday, but only wash my hair every other day. I use dry shampoo on the alternating days. I go through a bottle of dry shampoo a month of various brands.

This shampoo is...meh.

-It smells good but not great.
-There's no whiteness which is a plus.
-It added no volume whatsoever.
-While my hair feels good, it still looks a little bit sweaty.

I'm keeping it as a back up, but will not be purchasing again. Still looking for the perfect dry shampoo...

Into it !

I'm a big dry shampoo user and this one is awesome sauce. Goes on light - less powder residue to brush out and it doesn't get cake midway through day leaving dandruff like chucks on your clothes like the cheap guys.
It has a light lovely sent that isn't overwhelming.
It's cool and refreshing which makes it a great summer freshen-up bag item.

Dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is a holy grail for me and my big fluffy hair. This product gets the job done, not a lot of residue, I really like it.

This Doesn’t Work
Sampled

This dry shampoo does not work at all. There was no difference between how my hair looked beforehand and how it felt after I used this product. If anything, it made my hair feel even more greasy. Save your money, because I’d call this product “Plain Air in a Can.”

I never thought I would use this, but I did and I love it. My hair gets really oily and the dry shampoo helps.

Smelly

Kind of makes hair sticky but doesn’t look greasy so good. Good dry shampoo for teasing hair. I personally don’t like the smell.

my other dry shampoo samples that I have received from.Birchbox. it's not too powdery and smells really nice as well.

Made my hair oilier
Purchased

I think that finding a good dry shampoo is hard. The only thing going for this is that it smells good. It makes my hair feel like horsehair, leaves a white residue, and makes my hair feel oilier
