Turbans are a girl’s best friend

Turbans are a girl’s best friend

Think Joan Collins, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and Joan Crawford.   It was the glamour of Hollywood and seeing how beautiful these fabulous women looked in their turbans that inspired us to launch our new range.

Joan Collins turban glamour

We love a bit of Hollywood glamour, particularly a bit of "black and white" Hollywood glamour!  When glamour meant looking glamorous rather than having all your bits out on show and the kindness of photoshop!  And no, we’re not a pair of prudish fuddy duddies, we are just in awe of the seemingly effortless chic of some of these women.

Oscars

As we swish and glide towards this weekend’s 89th Academy Awards, we thought we could tell you why a Dilly Daydream turban should be your best friend.  We love the ease of popping them over wet hair, post shower, rather than twisting (and damaging) damp hair up into a heavy towel and then balancing it on top of your head.  They are towelling lined and incredibly lightweight but cleverly still manage to stop those annoying drips from running down your neck.

Hair styling

A towelling hair turban gently and effectively dries your hair. They can be worn for long periods before you need to style your hair, and it would seem the longer you wear them, the softer your hair actually feels when styling.  Plus your locks seem to behave much better under the brush.  Not only that, but towelling turbans pretty much halve the styling time which saves you time and avoids exposing your hair to any more heat from the dryer than necessary. Which means less hair damage and therefore happier hair.  Dame Joan Collins herself is well known for not using a hair dryer.

Add some treatment, a serum or the latest discovery Argan oil and you can almost hear your hair thanking you when you give it half an hour under your turban.  Remove your turban, 5 minutes of styling time and hey presto, beautifully soft tresses doing exactly as they're told.

Imagine yourself in one of these turbans on Oscar night, putting on your flawless make up and wafting round the house in something elegant!

The Beauty of a Towelling Hair Turban

We added towelling hair turbans to our range because we really liked the ease of popping them over wet hair, post shower, rather than twisting (and therefore damaging) damp hair into a heavy damp towel, balanced on top of our heads. They are incredibly lightweight but cleverly still manage to stop those annoying drips from running down the neck.

However, in a very short space of time they have come to mean so much more to us than just a drying device. So much so that on the days when we do wash our hair, we just don't want to take our turbans off!

You see towelling hair turbans really do gently and effectively dry your hair. They can be worn for long periods before you need to style your hair, and it would seem the longer you wear them, the softer your hair actually feels when styling.  Plus your locks seem to behave much better under the brush.  Not only that, but towelling turbans pretty much halve the styling time which saves you time and avoids exposing your hair to any more heat from the dryer than necessary. Which means less hair damage and therefore happier hair.

Add some treatment, a serum or the latest discovery Argan oil and you can almost hear your hair thanking you when you give it half an hour under your turban.  Remove your turban, 5 minutes of styling time and hey presto, beautifully soft tresses doing exactly as they're told.

So it's not surprising that we sold out of our original batch of turbans in as little as six weeks. And not surprising that we've had some fantastic feedback from our customers. You've worn them whilst enjoying a trip on the coast to stop the wind and sea salt whipping your hair up into a matted tangle.  You've found them really useful to keep your hair off your face when putting on your make up. Or you've just used them to keep your hair frizz free and out of the way in the hot tub. But our favourite story is the lady who has grown so attached to hers that she's quite content to wear it whilst putting the bins out.  It'll only be a matter of time before we'll all be sashaying down the aisles at Sainsbury's looking like Grace Kelly.

Lavender’s new

Lavender’s new

Lavender’s blue, dilly, dilly, lavender’s green When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen A colour; a plant; a scent. The healing properties of lavender have been well known for thousands of years. Used to treat a range of ailments such as insomnia, depression, migraines and joint pains, the aroma of lavender has a relaxing effect on the body as well as the mind and soul. A versatile plant, lavender has many culinary uses and was a particular favourite of Queen Elizabeth I who was partial to lavender conserve at breakfast time. Lavender plants are an excellent way of attracting butterflies and bees in to the garden.
