PonyDry

This product is designed to help women with long hair wash only their roots while keeping their ends dry. The polyester sleeve is placed over the length of a ponytail, twisted into a bun and secured with two elastics, which keeps the entire ponytail dry while showering. It was created to save time, prevent damage, and extend the life of hairstyles without the use of dry shampoo. Women can shower and wash their scalp as they normally would, fully drying only their roots in an average of seven minutes.
