My best hair care tip

Ad: Aquis Finland

 

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!

Undone hair 

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).

How to achieve your dream hair?

Sponsored collaboration: AQUIS Finland

 

I’ve always wanted long blonde hair, but I struggled for many years trying to achieve that. I made the mistake of bleaching my hair, using too much heat and not having the best tools to treat my hair. It’s not a coincidence my hair now looks better than ever, after using Aquis hair towels for a year.

As funny as it might sound, I’ve actually managed to achieve my dream hair!

A big thing is obviously the fact, that I’ve decided to be more content with myself and with what I got. I’ve learned to love both my natural hair color and my natural hair texture, which is wavy curly.

I know I’m not the only one wanting healthier and longer hair, so in this post I’m giving you some hair care tips.

 

Hair care tips for healthier and longer hair

 

  1. Give your natural hair color a chance.
    Instead of bleaching or dyeing your hair totally, try highlights or balayage and give your own hair color a chance. You might be surprised how nice your natural color looks! I know I was, because I always thought my hair was grey and colorless. But I’ve actually gotten tons of compliments on my hair color. Spoiler alert: your natural hair color probably suits you really well too.
  2. Pay attention to your diet and lifestyle.
    I don’t claim to be an expert on diet or lifestyle, but I try to live healthily.  I eat nutrition rich foods, I take food supplements and I exercise and sleep well.  Most of the time. Humans are complex and your lifestyle affects your looks, your skin and your hair. I’ve also tried biotin for hair growth a few times with good results. So biotin is also a good option for a little hair growth boost.
  3.  Try the curly girl method – or at least a few changes in your hair routine.
    I would at least stop heat styling (except diffuser or blow dryer on low heat) and switch to gentle moisturizing products. I’d also like to encourage you to start rocking and appreciating your natural hair look – be it curly, wavy or straight!
  4. Switch to hair towels that dry your hair fast and gentle.
    I actually use very little product in my hair nowadays. I just usually use curl gel instead of a million products. And more importantly, I really value the towels I use to dry my hair, because those I use daily. I also find the turban helpful in bringing out my curls.
  5. Use scrunchies made from soft fabrics.
    I only ever use scrunchies. My favorite scrunchies are made from silk so you can only imagine my excitement when I saw Aquis come out with silk scrunchies. Silk truly is the ultimate fabric for your hair. It’s luxurious and soft on the hair and especially helpful for curly hair, which can easily get frizzy.

How you dry your hair makes a difference in your hair’s condition

A simple thing, like how you dry your hair, can have a huge effect on the quality of your hair. I’ve written about Aquis towels multiple times here already, but here’s the important things in a nutshell:

Why AQUIS fast dry towels are the best option for your hair

  • They cut down the drying time even 50%
  • They are gentle on the hair – wet hair is fragile and you have to take good care of it
  • They give your hair shine, rather than making them frizzy, like regular towels do
  • They suit naturally curly hair perfectly and help to bring out the curl

As I mentioned, it’s not a coincidence that my hair has grown this long and healthy during a year where I only used Aquis towels. I use the towel first when I come out the shower and then I tie my hair in the turban. When I travel, I just pack the turban, because you can also use it as a towel first and then tie it up. Aquis towels are made from a special fabric that really soak up the water quickly from the hair, making your every day life a bit easier. With long hair comes the dreading of wash days – and these help!

New travel set from Aquis

Aquis recently came out with this handy new set containing a beautiful blue turban and two silk scrunchies.

The turban is a bit smaller in size so it’s perfect for travelling (and yes, sleepovers or going to the gym count as travelling these days). I find the size perfect for my hair. Especially since I don’t wrap my hair inside the long part of the turban, but I gather my hair up to make the best out of my natural curls. The blue color is inspired by Pantone’s color of the year 2020. I love blue and find it very calming. I’m actually dreaming of painting our bedroom wall blue some day.

The turban comes in a handy sealed travel bag.

The silk scrunchies that come in the set are just perfect. I couldn’t have asked for better colors! I adore navy blue and I think that it’s a perfect color for the season. And the lighter beige silk one fits all seasons and all outfits. The fabric is amazingly soft and these instantly elevate your look – even if it’s just a simple ponytail!

Aquis face cloth for makeup removal

Another travel essential from Aquis is their face cloth. I usually remove my makeup with a cloth – just because it’s so quick and effortless. It’s handy for travelling, because I don’t need a makeup remover, I can just swipe off my makeup. Because the fabric is so absorbent, it takes away the makeup easily. It also exfoliates the skin gently, so it doubles as an exfoliator. Again, great for on the go. Especially since you can carry it in the package it comes – even if it was a bit damp.
