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!
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.
