Professional blowouts can be expensive and inconvenient, whilst at-home attempts have a tendency to fall flat.
So what's a girl to do?
Prevention suggests that the secret to achieving "72-Hour Fresh-Hair" is as simple as 1, 2, 3:
Day 1: Shampoo twice in a row with a mild product to remove residue that weighs hair down; then condition only the ends.
Day 2: Spritz a dry shampoo onto your roots; the powder formula absorbs existing oil and prevents more from building up.
Day 3: Switch your part to boost volume and hide less-than-squeaky-clean roots; touch up with your blow-dryer to restore bounce.
