AQUIS Hair Towels Minimize Damage {Review}

AQUIS no-friction hair towel for long hair

I was sent AQUIS hair towels for review. All opinions are my own.

Until a few years ago I never really gave much thought to my hair. I realize now how lucky I was! I felt like my hair washed well and looked strong and healthy with almost any shampoo and conditioner that I used. I was never one to spend a lot of time experimenting with new hairstyles. I just got simple haircuts and would occasionally straighten my hair if I had a random curl or wave show up.

My hair a few years ago. 

About two years ago my hair changed pretty dramatically. Suddenly it lost its shine and would break easily. I had all of these tiny broken pieces of hair sticking out all over. I was so confused. I even asked my doctor about it in case it could be a medical problem. She sent me to a dermatologist. The dermatologist believes it’s likely my Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) progressing. I was born with EDS, it’s an inherited collagen disorder. I knew collagen played a big role in hair, but I was surprised at how quickly my hair changed.

Frizzy damaged hair

My hair more recently, on it’s worst days of summer humidity. 

So, I now take prenatal vitamins to help with my hair health. I also started following tips I had heard repeatedly, like not brushing your hair when its wet, and not using a towel to roughly dry your hair. However, the towel aspect has been difficult for me. My hair is very long and thick. If I try to let my hair air-dry completely, it takes 5+ hours which just doesn’t feel very practical to me. I really wanted to be able to towel-dry my hair well to speed up the drying process.

So, when I heard that AQUIS hair towels are designed to minimize damage because they are friction-free, I was interested. The Lisse Luxe hair towels come in two lengths, I tried out the longer one because my hair is past my natural waist. When the towel arrived I was a bit surprised at how thin it seemed. I had touched “microfiber” hair towels before, and this seemed even thinner than those! I was worried that it would not be nearly absorbent enough. Thankfully, I was wrong! I am just blown away by how absorbent the Lisse Luxe Hair Towel is. My hair doesn’t leave the towel heavily saturated – not even close!

The towels are very long but pretty narrow, so you can twist it over your hair when it’s long. Their shape makes them easy to hang on towel hooks without them falling off which was not true of my past hair towels. I’ve also noticed that they seem to dry quicker than our regular bath towels.

I’m trying to find the guts to cut my hair really short soon. I think I have accepted that my hair is just too damaged and I need to keep it short to keep it a bit healthier. I’ve enjoyed having long hair so I am a little sad, but I’m hopeful that using the AQUIS hair towels on my hair might help keep my new growth a bit healthier moving forward.

    Wow, I hadn’t heard of these towels before! Worth checking into for sure! Have you considered trying Biotin? It’s really done a lot for my hair and nails. It’s not that expensive so if you take it and yu don’t feel it’s made much difference, no big loss.

    • I had heard that biotin should be taken from other people and asked my dermatologist about it. He had me taking prenatals for hair-health purposes already. He said prenatal vitamins include a lot of biotin, folic acid and other supplements that are all great for hair health, so he said taking biotin in addition wouldn’t be necessary but biotin is definitely a good thing to make sure you’re getting if you have hair breakage or hair loss issues. 🙂

    I didn’t know they made a towel like this to help lessen the damage of your hair! I would love to try this towel! Sounds fantastic!

  • Peggy Nunn

    I did not know they make a towel like this. I will have to check it out for me and my nieces with their long hair.

  • Dandi D

    I’d never heard of towels like these before, but I’d love to try one!

  • John Smith

    This looks like an excellent towel!

  • Lauryn R

    Oh wow, I definitely need to get some of these! I have super long, thin hair and it tangles so easily! I had noidea that microfiber was so absorbent. Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂

  • Barrie

    Sounds like a great towel and one my daughter and I need. If you do decide to cut your hair, please consider donating it!

  • Debbie Welchert

    My daughter decided to have her hair long. She would love having one of these to help her hair dry just a little bit faster. I wouldn’t mind having one of these for my short hair too.

    I need to look into a couple of these towels. I keep my hair very long and in a braid most days. I am older and I definitely have to be careful because it is easier to damage than when i was younger.

    My hair is long too, not as long as yours and like you I dont do much more than air dry and leave it. I have noticed the older I have gotten the more flyaways and breaks. I might have to give the prenatals a try. I think you would look great in a shorter style, you have a beautiful face. The towel is much nicer to your hair than blow drying.

    YEARS ago I had several towels that were made for drying your hair. Heck I have never heard about them in years. I have noticed that my hair is breaking a lot so something like this would help. Going to get me one

    I don’t think I have ever considered a “hair towel”. I have lupus and with all my meds and it has done a lot of damage to my hair. The weekly low dose chemo alone has really destroyed it, so I am extra gentle on my curls. I may have to look into a towel. The only thing that I don’t like is how long it is, as I have a tendency to fall asleep in the towel if I put it on after a wash. I also just discovered the more categories tab, so glad I did!

    I got one of these for my nieces birthday and she loves it. Every time she is going to wash her hair she has to play hunt and seek. Her daughter who also has long hair loves it
