I received a Girlfriend Microfibre Hair Turban from The Works in my The City Girls goodie bag, which I posted about last week. Regular readers will know that I try to limit the amount of heat my hair is exposed to as I have been trying to gain length for the last few years, post hair extensions. I think I’m pretty good with my hair, I use good quality shampoo and conditioner, only use a comb when my hair is wet etc. but I knew I had to break the bond with my hair straighteners if I wanted to really improve the condition of my hair, as well as stopping the use of bleach on my hair, I now use tint.
The microfibre hair turban allows you to dry your hair naturally, without exposing it to rubbing with a regular towel or heat. We all know that heat causes so much damage so anything to limit that is great in my book. My hair is naturally curly and if I try to leave it to dry overnight I end up with more frizz than curls, so this product immediately caught my attention. I know you’re meant to tie your hair up for bed, in a plait or a bun, but this isn’t something I’ve taken to.I have previously posted about the trend for ‘hair plopping’, where you wrap your hair in a cotton t-shirt and allow your hair to dry within it and found the use of a turban to be exactly the same, just with different material. I have found the microfibre turban to work better than a cotton t-shirt as recommended with ‘hair plopping’.
