The least damaging way to dry your hair
After spending the past six months in post-platinum “rehab,” my hair is back—and thicker, healthier and stronger than ever. I know this because people have told me that they totally see the difference (and not just because I went brunette). The recovery process hasn’t been easy, and it’s involved lots of products, lots of air-drying, silk pillowcases and absolutely no coloring. In fact, this is the first time I’ve seen my natural color since I was 13 years old (and I’m kind of digging it).
A special towel to dry my hair after washing (to minimize breakage- and frizz-inducing friction) has been a mainstay as well, and I fully contribute at least part of my damage-repair progress to the Aquis Waffle Luxe Hair Turban. Made of a special super-gentle yet super-absorbent fabric, it’s amazing how much water it wicks away, which in turn majorly reduces the time it takes to blowdry (if you decide to heat-style). I have the Waffle Luxe Hair Towel as well (which I used when the turban is in the wash) but I definitely prefer the turban because it stays in place when I’m self-tanning, putting on makeup, or doing anything else for that matter.
Full disclosure: I LOVE a turban, and would totally leave the house wearing one if my husband didn’t threaten to commit me if I did. I have, however, donned my Aquis while hanging out around the pool with friends—with a deep conditioner underneath. Paired with a caftan (another one of my husband’s least favorites), the turban successfully merged function and fashion.
Even if you’re not worried about hair damage now, this is one of the best ways to keep your hair happy and healthy—and look retro-chic while you’re doing it.
