Curly girl must have product

must have curly girl product




I think we can all agree, that you can spend enormous amounts of money on the curly girl method. It’s so disappointing to buy new products only to find out it wasn’t right for you. That’s actually one of the reasons I like writing reviews – at least I can offer my experience and recommendations.

But there’s one curly girl product that you simply can’t go wrong with, and that is Aquis hair towel. *Aquis towels do what they promise (dry your hair 50% faster than a regular towel) and they do it well. It’s also one of those things you don’t have to repurchase all the time.


When it comes to naturally curly hair, making your curls or waves even just a tiny bit better is worth it. I’ve said it before, but these towels really do help with curl definition, since they absorb the water from your hair quickly and help set your curls.

Curly girl must have product for fast hair drying & plopping

I know that having a special towel or turban for your hair might seem excessive, but I assure you it’s not. I’ve now used Aquis’ hair towels daily almost for a year and I’m never going back to regular towels. Here’s four reasons why:


1. They make my life easier. Yes, really.
Having a towel that dries my hair faster makes my life easier. I’ve talked about my scalp problems here before, and that means I have to wash my hair almost every day. Washing my hair is not my favorite hobby, but these towels at least help to fasten up the drying process. Aquis towels are made from special Aquitex fabric, which cuts down the drying time by 50 %.

2. They keep my hair in good shape.
Wet hair is easily damaged or stretched – especially curly hair – so getting it quickly dry without friction is a good thing. Aquis towels are made of good quality fabric and they feel soft. Actually, on my latest appointment with my hairdresser, she actually complimented my hair. I’m pretty sure that using these towels instead of regular ones have made a huge difference to the health of my hair.

3. They help with curl definition and are great for plopping.
It’s hard to get your curls to dry in the perfect shape. I still struggle with curl definition – mostly because my hair is so heavy it can’t really hold a curl properly – but these towels help. Even if I just scrunch out the water out of my hair with Aquis towel, the curl comes a little more alive. *Aquis turban is also made for plopping! When it comes to naturally curly hair, making your curls or waves even just a tiny bit better is worth it. I’ve said it before, but these towels really do help with curl definition, since they absorb the water from your hair quickly and help set your curls.

4. They make my hair shinier.
A regular towel tends to make my hair frizzy. These, in contrast, seem to give me shine. It was even more visible, when I had my natural hair color all over, like in the photo below. Now my hair is bleached with balayage highlights, so obviously my hair is drier too. But that’s even more reason to do my best to keep my hair looking healthy and shiny.

Aquis has both hair towels and turbans and they come in different colors. They work for all hair types and I know people with straight hair also love them – because they dry the hair faster and are so gentle.


I use both a towel and a turban. I first like to scrunch out most of the water into the towel, after which I plop with the turban. You could probably get away with just using the turban, but it’s obviously even more effective plopping with a dry turban. The turban can then absorb even more water out of your hair.


The towels cost around 20$ and they’re absolutely worth it. You just can’t compare them to a t-shirt or even a microfibre towel (yes, I’ve tried that too). And as I said in the post – they’re not something you buy, try and throw away.

Warm red makeup – using lipstick 3 ways tutorial

Lipstick 3 ways warm red makeup



In this makeup I used lipstick three ways. I used it on my lips, my cheeks as a blush and also on my lids as a base for my color. Now I want to note that not all lipsticks are eye-safe, but I’ve never had any problems with natural makeup products such as Zuii’s lipsticks.

Lipstick on your lids acts as a sticky base. When you apply your eyeshadow on top of it, the color is gonna look more vibrant, because of the creamy base. It’s all about layering, to get the best results.


My favorite orange reds from Zuii. Here I used Siren!

  1. Prime your eyes first. Then add the lipstick as a base. Blend that out.
  2. Next apply your red eyeshadow on top of that lipstick base. Blend. Leave the center of the lid lighter for a highlight.
  3. Go over your lower lashline with the red eyeshadow as well and blend the edges.
  4. Tap on a gold highlight on the center of the lid. Also apply some light on your inner corner.
  5. Line your eyes lightly and add mascara. Done!

Add the lipstick to your lips and to your cheeks as a blush. Your whole look will look awesome, because the same color repeats itself all over your face.
