• Towel Turban for Long Hair by Finoriel

    Most of us will know the problems one has when our hair reaches a certain length and needs to be towel dried. While balancing a huge sauna towel on ones head surely is a good workout and adds to the entertainment factor of long hair, it can become quite annoying over time. Thatīs why I searched for another possibility to towel dry my hair with a regular much smaller towel. Itīs long side needs to be as long as my hair is when measured from the nape to the ends.

    1. Place the short side of the towel around your shoulders and let your wet hair hang over it.
    2. Fold one side of the towel over your hair.
    3. Fold the other side of the towel over your hair. Now you got a towel tube containing your hair.

    4. This towel tube filled with hair can be wrapped and draped around your head, like one would do for a fake crown braid.
    5. Secure the end of the towel under the start point at your nape.
    6. That way it will hold up of itself. Replace towel if needed.

    I like this version because:
    - it does not require to take my hair upside down
    - itīs not creating extra tangles while drying
    - the towel is replaced much faster (I need two or three to get to damp not drippy hair.)
    - the towel soaks up the water faster because more towel surface getīs into touch with my wet length and scalp hair
    - I can use really small guest-towels
    - which is perfect when traveling
    - the turban is smaller than with a sauna-towel, so itīs not as heavy and the pile is not so high
    - itīs better balanced than any other towel-turban I have done before.

      For natural and healthy hairs use towel with hot water. It makes hair healthy and better.

      How is a hot water towel gonna get your hair dry though, or is it for conditioning purposes (steaming)?
