The Olsens' Hairstylist Made My Thin Hair Look Way Thicker With This $6 Product

The wonders of dry shampoo are certainly not new—not by a long shot—and while I've been using the grease-busting, root-lifting product for years, I'd never known of its virtues, at least not in full. That is until Mark Townsend, the hairstylist behind Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen's looks for over 15 years, took a can of Dove's best-selling Refresh + Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo ($6) to my thin strands.

The styling started out like any other. Townsend's lovely assistant washed my hair, massaging my scalp like a true angel while I relaxed at the sink. Townsend used a detangling spray as he brushed out my wet curls as the formula keeps the cuticle closed and really works well pre-blow-dry. He followed up with Dove Style + Care Curls Defining Mousse ($5). "It has moisturizers in there, so it really is more like a very airy lotion," he told me. "I put it in damp hair before styling."
