How A Hair Turban Towel Changed My Life

Hear me out before you dismiss it for its frivolity – especially, my fellow curly-haired ladies.
|

When you have corkscrew curly hair and live in a tropical climate, you fight an uphill battle against humidity and frizz is your archenemy. For as long as my memory serves me, I have been that girl in a perennial pursuit of something, anything that could fix my mane. Serums, leave-in conditioners, salon treatments – you name it, I probably have tried it.

There were a couple of recommendations, however, that I entirely dismissed. Silk pillow cases. Hair turbans. How frivolous! I mean c’mon, how much of a difference could a hair turban make? My big ‘ol fluffy towel did the job and cost a fraction of the price of a gimmicky hair turban. But boy, oh boy, I could not have been more wrong.

A couple of months ago, when a beauty editor friend handed me a hair turban towel, I scoffed at the possibility of it making any difference at all. But when a beauty editor dishes you advice, you listen. When I eventually reached for the hair turban after weeks of it sitting ideal on my vanity, my life was forever changed. And I might only be the slightest bit dramatic in saying that.

Firstly, the hair turban, unlike my heavy towel, was not weighing my head and hair down. Designed with a button on one end and a loop on the other, the hair turban sat securely (and stayed out of the way) as I went about putting my face on for the day. I was already sold by the convenience but it only got better from there. When I removed the hair turban about 15 minutes later, my hair was noticeably drier than when I’d use a regular towel – all without any vigorous rubbing. Tugging at wet hair that is more prone to breakage is never a good idea anyway.

Whatever the magic is, when completely air-dried, my mane was visibly less frizzy and the curls, better formed. The hair turban is also great for locking in the moisture during leave-in treatments.

Perhaps, I should add the silk pillowcase to my cart next.

Also ladies, a disclaime, this is not an ad.
