Every few days, I wash my hair—I try to go as long as I can between shampoos but it tends to get wild—and the most boring part of my day is always the time I spend blow-drying. I have come to loathe it. So, in an attempt to minimize this time-suck, I took a chance on this little turban, which is made of what is purported to be ultra-thirsty fabric. The trick, I have learned, is to twist it super-tight—if you don’t do this, nothing special will happen—and to keep your hair up in it for several minutes—say the time it takes you to do your makeup. Your hair is still damp enough when you remove it to apply heat-styling product, but dry enough to significantly cut down the amount of time you spend styling. A minor miracle.
