Pro styling tip: Did you know that the type of towel you're using out of the shower, might be causing your hair to break and become damaged? Regular towels just won't cut it anymore when it comes to towel-drying and here's why: traditional bath towels don't absorb water quickly enough, and depending on the towel can be too heavy causing a lot of friction, which in return causes hair cuticles and strands to break. This results in damaged and dry hair, along with promoting split ends. Instead, try this Rapid Dry Hair Towel from Aquis. It's specially formulated wicking fabric called Aquitex cuts drying time in half without damaging your hair. Pair it with this Rapid Dry Hair Turban for an effective and healthy hair drying experience.
