AQUIS Hair Towel


It's always all about the hair with me, so hair towels and turbans are just as important as the products I use to wash and style my hair with. I have been using AQUIS turbans over 20 years (yes, Aquis has been around that long, little over 25 years and sold at Bed Bath & Beyond under the name Britanne - confirmed to me directly from the brand). It's where I purchased my first one in 1996 while I worked there, which I still have (beyond tattered for a pic.Trust me). #AquisHair

Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Turban in desert rose ($30)

First I received the Aquis Waffle Luxe Hair Turban in dream boat blue ($40) from PR reps and then the brand reached out directly sending me the LISSE Luxe Hair Turban ($30) and long hair towel ($35), explaining that LISSE is actually better for curly hair. They were right. See, for years many curl brands have advised against the use of hair turbans to dry curly hair. Why? Well, it creates more frizz and can break your hair. I upset many when I say that "I wash my hair everyday" - but I do, sorry. Have done so over 30 years and my hair is fine.

20 mins post shower - beats wet hair all morning!
Curl~Gurls are told to "squeeze hair and air dry instead". Well, after using my Aquis Waffle Luxe, LISSE Luxe and LISSE Long Hair Towel, that's not the case. My curls did dry faster, but without the frizz or damage expected. Love the Waffle Turban, but LISSE did make my hair feel softer; curls looked amazing. No frizz. Aquis turbans do have a clasp in the back to hold it in place.

The orange ties on the Aquis bags are hair ties - super strong too!
