Wash away those oily roots without ruining your blowout with a simple hair hack

I've always wondered how women who get their hair blown out a few times a month always manage to keep their hair looking so fabulous, even through multiple workouts.

I know, I know... there's the wonder of dry shampoo and a blow-dryer, but sometimes all that sweat and grime from living life leaves your hair feeling oily and just needs some contact with water to feel fresh.

That's where a new product comes in — and it's so simple you won't believe you didn't think about it first. The PonyDry is simply a bag you gather your ponytail into and secure it with the attached string so no water gets in. Then, you simply wash your roots as usual. When you're done? Just dry the roots and style as usual.

Yep, it's really that simple. PonyDry has created the world's easiest how-to video to help explain things, too.

It's a nice hair hack to have when the hair near your scalp gets oily, but you're not due for another shampoo or blowout for a few more days. The only downside is that it won't really work with naturally curly or wavy hair since it won't have an equal curl pattern.

But for those with straight hair, it's an absolute godsend.

The only thing you won't like about the PonyDry: It virtually eliminates your excuse for not going to the gym — no more sweaty post-workout hair. You're welcome!
