 Water and moisture are distinctly different things.  

Little known hair care fact: healthy hair is naturally water-repellant.

How can you reinforce your hair’s water-repelling function? It’s easy. Keep your hair naturally moisturized and don’t over-saturate your hair strands with water and risk water fatigue. 

You probably noticed a new term there – water fatigue. What is water fatigue, you ask? When you jump in the shower, your wet hair’s cuticles expand and your strands stretch, especially if you have long hair. This allows water to actually penetrate your hair strands. As your hair dries, its cuticles contract, whether you have curly hair or straight.

The repeated expanding and contracting of your hair plus oversaturation with water is called “water fatigue.” It can lead to breakage, disrupted cuticles, and dullness, especially if you're using the wrong hair towel wrap.  

The best way to keep excess water out of your hair strands is to reinforce smooth hair cuticles.

 There are several ways to maintain smooth cuticles. Here are two:

    1. When drying your hair, use a towel with a smooth texture so your hair does not catch on terry cloth loops and disrupt its cuticles.

    2. Remove water from your hair quickly.

Traditional towels are not a good plan for head towels. The cotton terry cloth towels that you use for toweling your body keep water on your head so long that you risk saturating your hair strands and damaging your hair if you use them as a head wrap. Even though terry cloth fabric types and other bath towels and bathrobe fabrics can include a blend of fabrics like cotton french terry, fleece fabric, organic cotton fabric, microfiber, and spandex, even the most heavyweight terry cloths don't provide the absorbency you need to dry your hair quickly enough.

Drying your hair very quickly protects the integrity of your hair. AQUIS super plush towels and one-size-fits-all turbans are made with an absorbent patented smooth-textured fabric that does not have cloth loops.

That means that AQUIS towels and hair turbans are super absorbent and zap water away from your hair strands 50% faster than terry cloth turban head wraps that are made of loops. Basically, it's the ideal hair drying towel. If you heat style, it also means less heat damage from your blow dryer.

When you use a washable AQUIS towel to dry your hair, you can avoid exposing your hair strands to water saturation and water fatigue. Ultimately, this microfiber hair towel will help your hair’s cuticles will be smoother, resulting in less frizz, less breakage, less risk of hair loss, and stronger hair overall. It's the ultimate hair towel, so put on a face mask and prepare for healthy hair.
