Not all of us are born with ultra-thick, straight-out-of-a-shampoo-commercial kind of hair, and that’s OK. However, if you’re one of those thin-haired people who seriously covet extra-voluminous strands, the journey to plumped-up strands can feel like an uphill battle. So, whether you’re looking for a volumizer-meets-dry shampoo hybrid or an in-shower solution, we’ve found an answer for you.

Plus, it also contains a UV filter to preserve color-treated hair, making it a must-have if you make frequent trips to your colorist.
