To take care of frizz and static, and to also minimize the time your hair is wet and cut down your styling time you’ve got to try AQUIS Hair Towels and Turbans.

Aquis Towel Lisse Luxe in Chevron

Saving time – like 50% less time with the blow dryer – plus destroying annoying static is a major winter beauty hack. Beauty Info Zone has been using AQUIS Hair Towels and Turbans for years.  I love the Hair Turban which has been my go-to forever, but recently I’ve converted to the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel (19 x 52 in – 50 x 132cm).

Nice to have something that is specific for long hair! It’s longer than the regular size, about 25% more, which I need since my hair is about mid-back length. The towel is made with AQUITEX, which dries hair super quick and cuts down on frizz and split ends. It also has magical properties that make for static-free hair! It’s incredible.

If you have thick, course/textured hair you will want the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Hair Towel ($35/Sephora.com) Most hair types will do great with the AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Towel ($30/Sephora.com). And of course if you have long hair like mine, go with the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel ($45/Sephora.com).

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

How about a hack for super white teeth? The Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel is what you need, not only as a whitening hack but also as a traveling hack. This toothbrush is the answer to rotating or swiveling brush heads, providing a gentler cleaning without irritating the gums. The results are pretty powerful – a super deep antibacterial cleaner and tooth whitener within a totally transportable toothbrush.

First of all, this toothbrush cleans teeth FAST. The ultrasound works via air oscillations and it actually cleans teeth in just 60 to 90 seconds – talk about saving time!! Even if you have ‘deep pockets’ this is a toothbrush for you, because the ultrasound penetrates deeply and gets in even the smallest crevices with very little effort on your part.

It’s also extremely gentle. You don’t have to fight with plaque because the ultrasound breaks it up. It gets rid of tartar and you won’t experience bleeding gums brushing with the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush.

A major plus is the ultrasound really attacks stains! It takes your teeth right back to their original color while it gets rid of all that bacteria and plaque. If you smoke, drink wine, eat a lot of beets, whatever…this toothbrush (and the special toothpaste) will take care of everything for you – and quickly.

Speaking of the toothpaste, you want to use the Mira-Teeth Toothpaste for the best results. It tastes great and it’s specially formulated for use with the ultrasonic toothbrush – you don’t use the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush with regular toothpaste. The ultrasonic brush makes microscopic nanobubbles in this toothpaste that do all the work and keep teeth healthy, protecting enamel and reducing wear and tear on teeth.

Brushing your teeth with the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush couldn’t be easier. You first brush normally with the toothbrush and toothpaste to get rid of large food particles, then you turn on the ultrasound and hold the brush head against the surface of your teeth (inside, outside, and chewing surfaces) for a few seconds. That’s it! The brush rarely needs charging and you do that with the included USB cable.

I am extremely impressed with this toothbrush – my teeth are incredibly clean in such a short time and they are definitely whiter.  It really is amazing! And what a terrific toothbrush for travel – no worries about charging or plugging it in and every time I brush I get a whitening treatment. The Mira-Teeth Starter Kit retails for $199 and is available on Techmira.com.

With these winter beauty hacks I am ready for another six more weeks of winter or more no problem!  – Lisa

Aquis Essentials Lisse Luxe hair turban and towel – you’re going to love these

Aquis

When AQUIS Towels came calling the Beauty Info Zone ladies came running. This is the premier brand of hair towels and we were excited to be able to use their newest towels. There are so many types of towels from AQUIS including body towels that this is only the tip of the iceberg. Today we are all about their hair towels.

 

  • Choose the best for your hair

    AQUIS comes in formats to suit different hairstyles and lifestyles. There are basically three choices.
    Length: Long towels are for long hair, otherwise choose regular.
    Fabric: Lisse Luxe is best for delicate hair and curls, Waffle Luxe is best for thick hair and lots of it.
    Format: Turbans are super convenient and stay on better. Plus there is no temptation to rub your hair (old habits die hard).
    Our towels are also light and easy to tie, usually dry hair slightly faster.

No one asks for frizz but everyone should ask for AQUIS!

AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Turban

AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Turban

Lisa and her Lisse Luxe Hair Turban:  I use a hair turban every single time I shampoo. My hair is long, but a regular towel is just TOO MUCH to wrap my hair in…it falls off my head within minutes. Hair turbans keep my wet hair safely in place and good ones do double duty by also reducing my dry time.

I love, love, love the AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Turban ($30). First, it comes in a super cute plastic pouch that is perfect for travel. I am so addicted to hair turbans that I can’t go without on vacation! It has a button and fastening loop to keep the turban in place and hair out of my face. I even use this when I am doing a facial mask or applying my makeup.

The best part, though, is how well it absorbs water. The turban is made with Aquitex, which is soft and comfy and incredibly absorbent. This saves my hair from heat styling time, resulting in wonderful side effects like better hair health, less frizz, and less split ends. I love my AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Turban so much that I only have one complaint – I need more because my daughters keep stealing it!!

Hey....give me back my AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Turban!!

I introduced my Aquis Lisse Luxe Towel on my Frizz Busters post the other day. I too use mine every time I wash my shoulder length hair. I fold it turban style and it wicks out the wet. I save so much time drying my hair because of the efficiency of this Aquis Towel.

The one I have is the full size Lisse Luxe towel which comes in several colors. Mine is a chevron weave and if that doesn’t suit you just pick from Desert Rose, Ivory White, or Cloudberry. The Chevron is perfect for my gray and white bathroom!

This particular towel is 19 X 42 in (50 X 107 CM) which gives it plenty of room to wrap my hair and stay wrapped. I leave it on for 5-10 minutes while I’m brushing teeth, taking vitamins, prepping my skin with moisturizer. When I remove it my hair isn’t wet wet anymore, it’s damp but not damaged. Rubbing a towel on your head is not good for your hair so it’s important that the water gets wicked away without pressure.

I’ve owned Aquis towels for years and years. As soon as I first learned about the brand I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to purchase one. My previous one has gone on many vacations with me so it’s seen a lot of good times but when I look at the new one I know it’s time to put my previous one away.

The size and feel of the Lisse Luxe is superb. I know this is going to sound silly but I have a phobia about hair clinging to towels and items (this is coming from the mother of a shedding dog). Lisse Luxe doesn’t hold onto those hairs so I don’t have to get the shivers picking them off. A small thing but important to me.

Whether you are a fan of the Turban or the Hair Towel, you are in for a treat. At $30 each they may seem expensive at first but you’ll get so many years of use from these that they’ll practically paying you to use them. The Aquis website has free shipping at $30 which is a bonus. Aquis Hair Turban is also newly available at Sephora.com to make your shopping even easier.

AQUIS TOWELS

Aquis Towels have been around for at least 20 years but they’ve changed over time. I remember buying my first one and being amazed at the difference using this towel on my hair. When drying your hair, using friction causes frizz. With an Aquis towel or turban you allow the water to wick out of your hair leaving it easier to to style without frizz. My newest one was sent by Aquis and I am in love with it. Sunday, July 10th I’ll be showing more pictures and telling you more about this towel but I can assure you that you need one of their towels in your life.

BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT ACAI SMOOTHING SERUM and THERMAL STRAIGHTENING BALM

Brazilian Blowout Thermal Straightening Balm and Smoothing Serum

After towel drying my hair I turn to serum, balms and other products to be able to even get a wet brush or wide tooth comb through my hair. I’ve used the Brazilian Blowout Acai line on and off for years. I get a keratin treatment about every 8 months so my hair is basically straight and fends for itself most of the time with frizz. But if I forget to use product I’m lucky to make it through one day let alone several. The Thermal Straightening Balm is used when I blow dry my hair since it locks out moisture. The Smoothing Serum is a multi-tasker. Not only is it great for blow drying and flat ironing but it’s recommended for use when you go swimming. Wet your hair and smooth some of the serum in to protect your hair from chlorine and salt. You don’t need to have a keratin treatment to use these great products, they are great for everyone.

LIVING PROOF FRIZZ NOURISHING STYLING CREAM and STRAIGHT

Unless I’m testing a new line I like to switch up the products I use so I’m always going back to Living Proof. Everything I’ve tried from them has been excellent. My go-to line is the No Frizz one. Their Nourishing Styling Cream is just the thing to stop frizz. As they say “weightlessly blocks humidity, smoothes and conditions, no heavy silicones or oils”. If you believe in frizz busting this is one of my favorites. After buying it the first time I quickly bought a second during a holiday special. Straight Style|Lab is a spray that I use when I wash my hair. I apply the Nourishing Styling Cream otherwise I can’t comb through my hair. Then I spray this on in sections to seal. This can be used on wet or dry hair but it’s best used before you heat style.

DERMORGANIC LEAVE-IN TREATMENT AND FAST DRY SHAPING SPRAY

DermOrganic Leave-In Treatment and Fast Dry Shaping Spray

DermOrganic Leave-In Treatment and Fast Dry Shaping Spray

I’m a huge fan of DermOrganic products. The first time I used them they were sent to me but I’ve since purchased several of the products. The Leave-In Treatment is a repurchase for me. This is a wonderful leave-in that is so amazingly light that you’d almost never know it was in your hair. But you do know because it does such a great job adding softness, shine, thermal protection, and controlling frizz. It’s made with Argan Oil of Morocco. While it’s not advertised as a frizz buster, it definitely works that way for me.

Fast Dry Shaping Spray is a great lightweight spray even though the name says Plus Hold. I hate helmet hair and I only use a spray on days that are very important style wise (like my niece’s upcoming outdoor wedding). I included this since it does a good job of allowing me to brush through my hair yet controlling it and keeping frizz from taking over. It’s vegan and there is no: animal testing, artificial preservatives, sulfates, gluten, sodium or chloride, salt, parabens, MEA, DEA or dyes. Plus it has a pleasant fragrance unlike so many sprays I’ve tried.
