Mid-summer on the boat I am not about to fire up my hair dryer to straighten my hair. It has a slight curl but if I leave it to its own demise, I end up with a frizzy mess that eventually goes into a ponytail. I have tried different “curl” products (AG Recoil, Marc Anthony Strictly Curls) which reduce the frizz but don’t really add to the curl. I was recently in London Drugs and found a product called Studio Dry Hair Drying Gloves, they look like giant muppet hands.
They use an exclusive Pile-Dry technology to cut your drying time, add a brilliant shine and leave you with softer, fuller curls. They retail for $15 so I thought, why not (I have spent way more than that on products that didn’t work).
They claim that the gloves will only absorb water and not styling products so I washed my hair, added some Aveda Thickening Spray to the roots and some Morrocon Oil to the ends, and scrunched away. My hair is fine and I noticed that the drying time was greatly reduced, it’s quite amazing. My hair felt fuller, not sure about shinier but the curls looked good. This is definitely a product that I will put on my boat.
