Dry Shampoo

Nothing, is sexier than a tumble of tousled tresses — with va-va-voom volume and gravity-defying lift (think Bardot, not Bon Jovi). Since only a handful of us are actually born with bombshell manes, top hair care companies have created genius volumizing products to help us fake it.

From lift-inducing inserts to thickening dry shampoos, these 'do-boosting gems will take you from blah to bodacious in seconds!


Dry Shampoo:
Sometimes second- and third-day 'dos are the best! Especially with a translucent dry shampoo — simply spray throughout hair and finger-tousle.

The gentle starches absorb excess oil while adding Cosmo cover girl-style volume to ho-hum hair. Rowr.

    • J.J. Watt accidentally outs relationship in Christmas photo

      A picture is worth a thousand words, or in J.J. Watt’s case, a stocking. After putting the finishing touches on his holiday decor Thursday, the NFL star gave fans a glimpse of his Christmas cheer via Snapchat. But Watt may have slipped up by displaying — tucked away in the background, as Terez Owens was first to point out — a second stocking marked with a “K” for stunning soccer-playing girlfriend Kealia Ohai. Watt has yet to address the relationship publicly, though Ohai — the sister-in-law of Texans teammate Brian Cushing — talked about the pair in October. “The rumors are true. We are dating,” Ohai confirmed on the 2 Up Front podcast. “I’ve known J.J. for a really long time, and we’ve always
