How to Do a Root Wash to Preserve Your Blowout Post-Gym

blowout1

With the rise of blowout bars, it’s become more and more tempting to skip the gym in favor of maintaining that expensive ‘do. And no one understands better than fitness expert and founder of The Bliss Project, Lori Harder, whose mane reaches well past her shoulders. But because it’s literally her job to work up a sweat (see her Instagram for proof), she came up with a way to cleanse her scalp post-workout without having to start a blow-dry from scratch. “Let’s face it, the afterglow on your skin and the endorphins you feel after a workout kicks any ‘good hair day’s’ booty. But since I believe we can have our cake and eat it too, this root wash is the perfect, easy way to refresh your roots while keeping your tresses flawless,” she says.

Follow Harder’s 15-minute (or less) root wash method to keep a coiffed look in shape, even if an intense workout threatens to obliterate your stylists’ hard work.
