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.

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 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.

Smells great but still leaves hair greasy

This dry shampoo smells nice, but still leaves my hair feeling greasy after applied. Not the best dry shampoo out there

I do not like using dry shampoo. I don't like the way my hair feels after using it. My hair feels a little sticky or like it is coated with something nasty instead of being super soft. I always end up just throwing them in the trash. I really prefer not to receive dry shampoo samples.

Very nice

I really enjoy this product because it didn't have a white color to it and didn't smell gross.

Dry shampoos

I keep getting dry shampoos, I’m not sure how late use them, I wash my every day I have short hair that I blow dry straight because it’s natural curly so I really haven’t had much use for dry shampoos

Does what it says!
Sampled

I haven't really found a dry shampoo that I didn't like. This one definitely does it all! Gets the excess oil out, DEFINITELY increases volume (which I love) and adds definition. Great product and have no reason NOT to buy.

Left residue
Sampled

I didn’t care for this at all as it left residue. I am tired of getting dry shampoo each month even though I have tweaked my profile as Birchbox suggested. I will be switching to another monthly subscription box once this one is up. Same stuff all the time.
