As someone who has put her hair through the virtual ringer, with boxed dyes, professional dyes, bleaching, hot tools styling, and lending my hair to the fashion industry to be backcombed, painted, teased, and tousled, it’s safe to say my hair isn’t in the healthiest state. This was the main reason I was so thrilled when I received an email from Aquis Hair, inviting me to try out their hair towel and hair turban to promote healthier hair.
First, let’s start with some hair truths that are outlined on Aquis’ website (and super cute packaging!):
YOUR HAIR IS NEVER SO VULNERABLE AND DAMAGE PRONE AS WHEN IT IS WET.
IT’S YOUR HAIR BABY! YOUR HAIR NEEDS TENDER CARE JUST LIKE YOUR HANDS AND HEART.
DOES YOUR HAIR HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM?
HOW TO KEEP YOUR HAIR’S VIRTUE INTACT?
THE SECRET TO BEAUTIFUL HAIR IS COMPASSION.
A HUMBLE HAIR TOWEL CAN MAKE AS MUCH DIFFERENCE AS SHAMPOOS OR SERUMS
LET DRYING WITHOUT DAMAGE BECOME SECOND NATURE.
ONLY WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HAIR CAN YOU TRULY CARE FOR YOUR HAIR.
WOMEN SPEND BILLIONS ON HAIR TREATMENTS. IF ONLY THEY TREATED THEIR HAIR BETTER IN THE FIRST PLACE.
LIFE’S TOO SHORT FOR BAD HAIR DAYS.
Aquis is leading the natural hair care movement and I feel super honored to be a part of it! Now, some info about the products themselves…
Aquis microfiber hair towels are the ORIGINAL microfiber hair towel containing Aquis’ revolutionary Aquitex weave which transforms microfiber into a luxury towel fabric. Aquitex has 4-7x the water-wicking rate than ordinary cotton towels, and increases your hair’s natural wicking properties while lowering friction and enabling faster hair drying with less frizz and hair breakage.
As a commuter, I tend to shower at night before I go to bed so I can sleep in as much as possible before starting my trek to work. I hate going to sleep with wet hair, and there’s nothing I hate more than loud noises (blowdryer) at night. So when I read about the benefits of using an Aquis towel or turban on my hair and was faced with the challenge of drying it sans blowdryer, I figured I couldn’t lose!
The Hair Turban is nice and long which is perfect for those with long hair. As someone who has tried hair turbans before, one of my main struggles is fitting all of my hair underneath. That wasn’t an issue with the Aquis Hair Turban! I also love the material and the colour. It makes me excited to wash my hair! The first night I used my hair turban, I left it in for about an hour before brushing it out and going to bed. My hair (which is deceivingly thick) was only a little damp, which is a huge difference to the sopping wet mess it generally is.
The next morning, I woke up to soft, bouncy hair, which was basically a miracle considering the way it usually looks after blowdrying. I’m super happy with the results and will continue to use the hair towel and turban as a replacement for blowdrying. I like the life my hair seems to have and if I can restore health in it from regular use, it only seems like a win-win situation!
Are you a natural, air dryer, or do you prefer blowdrying your hair? I’d love to hear your thoughts below!
