Here’s Mystery Item #2 of the mystery items I bought at Sasa one dull day. It was quite an easy one :)
I think the microfibre material was a dead giveaway don’t you think? Its a towel… but what sort of towel? Ah… that’s what the mystery is! :D
Answer: Hair Drying Towel/turban – RM9.90
What it is, is a cap at one end and a long “tail” at the other end. Slip the “cap” over your head, with the long “tail” facing forward, bundle up your hair into it, twist the “tail” end and button it at the back of your head to hold it in place. The idea is for it to hold your wet hair after washing and to help it dry more quickly.
Is it ideal? Only if you have a lot of hair or long hair. On my short hair, I found myself wrestling to put it on and ensuring all my wet hair was covered, and my hair was too short to twist up fully so there was too much excess material and it could move around and loosen.
It was easier to use than twisting up my hair in my bath towel as I usually do and it did seem to dry my hair more than by just rubbing it with my towel. Rubbing your hair with a towel can cause your hair to tangle up more. With this, you don’t have that problem.
I think it was a worthwhile purchase :)
Hair Drying Towel/Turban was purchased at RM9.90 at a Sasa store. There is no brand/name. It came packed in a clear plastic bag.
