Hair Rehab: Aquis Lisse Luxe Long Hair Towel
“People always ask me how long it takes to do my hair. I don’t know, I’m never there.” - Dolly Parton
When I was a child, I accidentally cut my own hair. I was going through that phase where I was bored of practicing hairstyles on my doll's head and wanted to take it to the next level. Thinking I was a hairdressing prodigy, I cut away at my lovely long locks - only to regret it seconds later. Turned out, my hairdressing ability was more on par with Edward Scissorhands than Nicky Clarke... I'd literally hacked at it, right in the middle of length, so my hair was completely ruined. I've always been a goody two shoes and didn't want to get in trouble, so I hid the clump of hair under my parents' bed, as if they'd never notice. Of course, they did notice and there was only one way to fix it.
I had to have a bob.
Since that moment, I've tried to be good to my hair. I've only had highlights once, I've never fully dyed it, I protect it with products and oils as much as I can and I wash it every 4 days. Rightly or wrongly, protecting my hair is always at the top of my priority list. So when I came across the Aquis Lisse Luxe Long Hair Towel, a revolutionary hair towel designed to reduce damage and frizz, I was rather intrigued.
Years ago, I was told that towel drying your hair was bad for it but I never really gave it a second thought. When hair is wet, it is delicate and stretchy, so rubbing it with a regular towel can cause damage to the hair's cuticles, creating friction and frizz. The Aquis Lisse Luxe Long Hair Towel is made with a unique, absorbent fabric that keeps the hair cuticles smoother, ensures hair retains moisture naturally and cuts down on drying time.
So, is it worth the bother?
Yes! My hair is so long and thick that washing and drying it is torture - it takes such a long time. But since using my Aquis Lisse Luxe Long Hair Towel, my hair dries quicker, smoother and with less flyaway frizz. It absorbs excess moisture faster than any other towel I've used before, which means it takes less time to blow dry.
Before Aquis, it would take me over 30 minutes to blow dry my hair. After Aquis, that time is reduced to 20 minutes. It might not sound like much but that's 10 minutes less that my hair is exposed to heat every time I blow dry it. Another thing that I love about it is it's really comfortable to wear; it's light, easy to wrap around your hair around and doesn't pull on your neck! At £35, it's quite an investment but if you love your hair and want quicker drying, smoother locks, it's definitely worth it.
