Are you ready for a review about a posh towel?
Posh towel you say? What’s the point! I have lots of towels!
Well – sometimes you don’t know you need something until you have it. Like a posh towel.
The Aquis hair and beauty towel has been around in the US for a while now and is arriving in the UK. The waffle look towel is created with Aquitex, to help dry quicker naturally (whilst wrapped in the towel). The idea behind it is that regular towel drying (especially with rubbing) is bad for the hair and bad for the cuticle, damaging the hair and creating frizz.
The towel comes in different sizes and styles depending on what your needs are (long hair, short hair, curly hair etc.) and a selection of colours. As someone who lets her hair air dry whenever possible (and yes, it goes frizzy if I forget to put some serum in it) this sounded like a total ME product. I could wrap my hair in this and leave it, and the whole drying process would be accelerating WITHOUT me having to use any aggressive techniques!
I adore the packaging it is very modern and cute in the bag and there’s an orange hair band with it too!
The towel I have is The Power of Love (waffle luxe) which is 50x107cm in Moody Grey (£30). It is suitable for thicker hair types.
The surface of this towel looks like a waffle and it feels like it almost has a coating – like it wouldn’t absorb adequately.
I used this a few times and it does indeed, seem to suck up moisture from the hair when it is freshly washed (the thin towel feels considerably heavier afterwards). Did it totally dry my hair – nope. But it took a lot of moisture out for me to air dry the rest of the time AND my hair seemed smoother afterwards without product (but I would still use a bit of serum).
It’s a surprising light feeling towel compared to the big heavy towels I usually use on my hair.
Yep this is a posh towel, and no kids you can no use it.
