Aquis Hair Towel FAQs
Q: what is Aquitex Microfiber?
A: The term "microfiber" is a measure of size, referring to ultra-fine fibers that are less than 1 denier per filament. In comparison with other materials, microfibers are twice as fine as silk and three times finer than cotton. Microfibers are high performance fibers, engineered to carry out a number of functions such as transporting and managing moisture, and regulating heat.
Q: why is Aquitex Microfiber the best?
A: Every Aquis towel is made from Aquitex microfiber. All microfibers are not created equal and the technology behind each type of microfiber material is designed to produce a fiber with the specific characteristics important to its function and end-use. Aquitex microfiber has been perfected for more than 10 years, and is designed for the most efficient moisture transport while providing greater durability, comfort and softness than other microfiber towels.
Aquitex microfiber has a unique hydrophilic capillary action that draws water faster, more thoroughly and gently from hair and skin than ordinary towels. Because it has been woven from ultrafine microfibers, Aquitex has much more surface area for absorption and evaporation, which greatly increases its drying capabilities. This same technology also allows Aquis towels to dry quickly between uses, keeping them fresher longer.
Q: what are the benefits of using Aquis Microfiber towels?
ULTRA ABSORBENT - Aquis hair towels and our patented turbans are designed to gently absorb much of the excess, drippy water that is left behind after washing. This means you spend a lot less time with a blow dryer, and you don't need to harshly rub your hair dry - both of which can be unforgiving and unkind to hair. Aquis hair towels and turbans help reduce split ends and damaged follicles, contributing to healthier hair while saving you time.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND COMPACT - For outdoor, sports and travel, Aquis towels are lightweight, compact, durable and dry quickly - a perfect combination for any sports or outdoor enthusiast. Unlike other travel or sport towels, they feel extremely soft and supple, just like a towel you would use every day at home.
GENTLE ON SKIN AND HAIR - Aquis towels are gentler on your skin and hair than a cotton towel. Simply blot to absorb excess moisture, rather than harsh rubbing.
QUICK-DRYING - Aquis towels dry quickly between uses, allowing them to stay fresher longer.
DURABLE - Economically speaking, Aquis towels are a smarter choice. They are much more durable than other towels, which allows them to last a lot longer.
Q: In what material finishes are Aquis microfiber towels available?
All Aquis products are made from the same Aquitex microfiber. However, certain items are available in different finishes:
LISSE - Aquis Lisse is the original, smooth and soft material for Aquis towels. It is the most compact and lightweight weave, and is most popular for drying hair fast and for travel/outdoor.
Q: What is the Aquis Turban?
The Aquis turban is made from the same super absorbent Aquitex material as our towels. Our patented turban design has a convenient button closure on the back and is extremely lightweight, which keeps it securely in place while it dries you hair. No more balancing act needed from a heavy cotton towel that flops around on your head while you're trying to get ready.
Q: How do I care for my Aquis towel?
Machine wash warm, Tumble dry medium. No chlorinated bleach, fabric softener or iron.
