How is your hair doing? Are you giving it the love and care it deserves?
My hair is doing great. I’ve done some changes, as well as done some things exactly the way like before.
About a year ago I told you how I had finally achieved my dream hair. I’m still very happy with my hair – except I’m longing for more length. But other than that, I don’t have to stress about my hair much. And yes, a big part of it is thanks to Aquis towels, which create the perfect base for my (simple and quick!) hair care.
New hair cut – layers for wavy & curly hair
Recently I did something scary and not only tried a new hairdresser, but also tried a new haircut! I’ve been thinking of cutting layers for ages, but now I finally did it. The layers have done wonders for my curls and waves. My hair doesn’t feel limp and heavy anymore, instead it’s more voluminous and airy. And I like the carefree look of it.
This new hair cut has also made it possible for me to like my hair even when I don’t style it. Even if I skip curl gels altogether, my strands kind of have a bend to them and my hair looks nice.
If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, I strongly urge you to try layers – it gives so much life to the curls.
Growing my natural hair color back – again
Two years ago I added balayage highlights to my hair and there’s still some left on the ends. I loved having highlights, but as funny as it sounds, I miss my own color a bit too. Plus I’m pregnant and don’t want to color my hair. So I’m back to growing my own color – this time it should be easier, as I’m already almost there. And I have done it once so I know it’s doable.
And about growing your own color – you don’t need to have a “special” hair color to do it. I can not stress this enough, so I’m repeating myself: You might be surprised how beautiful your natural color looks. If you want to grow your own color as well, hit me up on Instagram! I can be your support buddy. We can do it! #naturalhaircolorclub
I think my whole life I’ve battled against the norm of having to “do” your hair. Like you should do a lot to your hair every day. I’ve always felt the most confident and best just having my hair living its life, free, undone – even slightly messy. My hair can move around. I touch it every once in a while. If I’m hot, I put it in a bun quickly. And when I feel like it, I do more to it.
So for a while now I’ve also done less with my hair when it comes to the curls. Not trying so hard to get the best out of them. I’ve actually started to really love day two waves as well! And yes, I still take care of my hair the curly girl way. Shampooing with a mild shampoo, using a good conditioner, scrunching in a bit of gel and not rubbing my hair when drying it. But it’s a very simple routine, one that comes effortlessly.

My best hair care tip – Aquis towels
I’m also still only using Aquis towels to dry my hair. I’ve now used their towels for two years, so you can be sure my praise is well backed up. Switching to these gentle fast-dry towels is the easiest favor you can do to your hair. If you still don’t know what makes them special, here’s a reminder:
They’re made from a special fabric that is:
- really gentle on the hair
- really effective – they cut down the drying time even 50%!
This fabric also
- reduces frizz
- gives shine to the hair
+ since they speed up the drying process, I’ve found these really beneficial in bringing out the natural waves and curls
All these things I’ve experienced to be true, during these years of only using these. I never travel without Aquis anymore (the turbans are great for that, because you can kind of use the other end as a towel and then wrap the turban on to dry your hair).
My hair nowadays stays in great shape and a big part of it are these towels, as crazy as it sounds. I mean, I guess it makes sense, when you think of how often you wash your hair and then dry it. So the best hair care tip that I can share with you are these Aquis products. They suit all hair types and they make life so much easier!
The newest star to my Aquis collection is the 2 layer turban with a red silky look. It’s not only really pretty, but can be used to protect your hair or curls during the night! As you probably know, silk and satin are great gentle fabrics for the hair.
All in all, my hair and me are really happy right now. One thing I’m still slightly anxious about, is the pregnancy and how it’s gonna affect my hair. But whatever hair change, I’m sure I’ll take it. And I’ll always have my Aquis towels so there’s not too much change in my life (haha).
