Wrap your hair up with the Turbie Towel
Member Name: linzeelou
Advantages: Works well
Disadvantages: Not available at Wilkos anymore
Having my hair wrapped up in a massive towel after having a bath or shower annoys the hell out of me. As I have quite long hair, it gets pretty heavy when soaking wet and add to that a big towel, soaking up the water and it all becomes quite uncomfortable. When I saw the Turbie Towel in Wilkos one day, I decided to give it a go.
Price and availability
My Turbie Towel came from Wilkos and cost only 99p at the time although after looking at the website, it doesn't seem like they are available anymore. They are available to buy on Amazon from 88p to £5 with the choice of different colours, whereas my only choice was white. I would have preferred black.
What is it exactly?
The Turbie Towel is a 100% cotton towel that looks like a turban once on your head. In order to use the towel, you start to put it on like a normal towel after washing your hair but instead of having lots of left over material, you push the end of it through a little loop which keeps it securely in place.
Using the Turbie Towel
As I have said, I mainly use this for just after I have washed my hair before blow drying it. I always put on my make up before doing my hair so the Turbie Towel keeps my hair com-pletely out of my face while I do this. Sometimes, when using a normal towel, it gets so heavy that it falls off my head but I don't have this problem with the Turbie Towel. It stays perfectly in place until I remove it which is fantastic.
I really love my Turbie Towel and use it all of the time. It dries out pretty quickly and keeps my wet hair out of my face. 99p well spent!!
Summary: A great product
