I have quite thick hair and it has been at various legnths throughout my adult life. From short and spikey to shoulder legnth. I wash my hair around 3 times a week and more recently due to having a toddler and full time job i am constantly juggling more than one thing at a time. A relaxing bath, or shower is a rarity these days, and i am always thinking of the next thing i need to be doing.
Generally when i am washing my hair and use a towel, no matter what technique i adopt, trying to put the washing in the machine or loading the dishwasher with my hair wrapped in a towel, usually leads to a wet neck and the towel ending up over my face or on the floor?!
Until i had a wander around my local 'cheapie store'....
Looking in the health and beauty section, i came across this at a very cheap £1 ( i am sure that this may have retailed higher, but it must have been my lucky day!), the Turbie Towel in all its glory, with a very smug looking lady with her hair in one, and her flawless skin on the packaging of the product.
The Turbie towel is a towel shaped rather like a pyramid that is extendable enough to fit around the base of your head at the one end, and tapering to a point at the other. Believe it or not it is towelling in material (lol) and edged so that as not to frey. At the larger base end of the turbie towel, is an elastic loop in which you are able to pull the point of the towel through to keep it in place, a little like a pony tail.
Mine is white with the proud logo of Turbie towel in pink and black at the back on the base of the product.
It is as simple as flipping your head forward when it has been washed and placing the lager end around the base of your head, twisting the outer edge of the towel with your hair inside and, once you have lifted you head up again, pulling the narrow end through the elastic!
It stays in place very effectively to the point that i am able to get on with child and household bits while my hair is in it, when it was both long and short. Simply pull the tapered end of the towel back through the elastic to take it off, simple as that!!
The turbie towel can be washed as you would your other towels and i have not found it to have lost shape at all.
I wouldnt say that the product dries the hair, more that it takes the 'sogginess' out, helping to stop the dripping and leaves your hair damp. You are able to simply put your hair straight in it and also use it as a towel and rub your hair dry somewhat.
This product is really easy to use and clean, and was very cheap indeed, what more can i say, it does what it should do very well. 5/5 from me!!
