While having dinner with a couple of my BFFs last month, my girl J-Money surprised me with a gift — the Aquis Microfiber Hair Towel ($18).
With the care one reserves for items of great value and importance, she looked me dead in the eyes, placed the package in my hands and said, “You’ll understand its power soon enough.”
The Aquis Hair Towel is made from a special microfiber fabric supposedly able to absorb far more water than a regular cotton towel. Awesome, because my hair retains a lot of water and takes forever to dry.
After two weeks with the Aquis, I think I understand why J-Money treated it with such reverence — the thing really works!
Normally, I wrap my hair up with a towel when I step out of the shower and leave it on for about 15 minutes before taking it off to air dry. The process takes about three hours to thoroughly dry my hair.
But doing the same thing with the Acquis wrapped around my head for the first 15 minutes after a shower, drying takes about an hour and a half, or half as long as it takes with a regular towel.
The Aquis even feels better on my head. Regular bath towels are considerably heavier and bulkier, especially once they’re packed with water.
J-Money found the towel at H2O+, but Bed Bath and Beyond sells them for about the same price.
Using one of those 20% off discount coupons Bed Bath and Beyond sends out in the mail brings the cost down to $14 from $18. Not a bad deal.

Mercury in retrograde, NOOO!
The May forecasts are up over at Astrology Zone! My fellow Geminis, get ready for a month of Mercury in retrograde, gah!
I hope the stars line up for me next Tuesday… That’s when I go back to the dentist for the first of three scary appointments involving anesthesia (boo!) and silver dental hooks.
On the bright side, I plan to try out a few new waterproof mascaras. Why not put those tears of anxiety to good use, right?
How’s your Monday shaping up?
