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

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 dry shampoo is fantastic! I struggle with keeping up with washing my hair, managing a very hectic work schedule. On a day where I don't have time for the extra wash, this helps manage my hair, and make it look just as clean as it would've after a wash. Yes yes yes!

BEST DRY SHAMPOO

I've been using dry shampoo for the best 4 years and have tried so many! I have medium to thick strawberry blonde hair and R+Co's dry shampoo is a keeper. I have bought drug store dry shampoos and high end like Oribe at $44, and this one blows them all out of the water. You will not get the powdery white residue or any residue at all-- the mist is even, smells great, and the packaging is a winner. I use this on 2nd and even 3rd day hair and it adds volume and texture while absorbing oil! A close 2nd is Amika's PerkUp Dry Shampoo, works good, but the scent is too strong.

I do not like dry shampoos. They are very bad for your hair.

I swear I bought this and it was gone in a week. User error? Idk. But I’ve used my fair share of dry shamps, and I found this one dissatisfying.
