What on earth is a microfiber towel and why do I need one? If you’ve been following us for any amount of time, you will have heard us preach about the importance of the microfiber towel!

What is a microfiber towel?

Ordinary cotton or terry cotton/wool blend towels can cause frizz, because of the ”pull” created by the fibers of the material. These ordinary towels are made within a framework of large, loose loops. The loops stick out and hair strands ”stick” to them due to the friction. Although ideal for your skin after a showering or swimming, they are not good for your curls. The fibers are too rough and lift the cuticle of each strand of hair, causing frizz. They can make issues like breakage, split-ends and tangles even worse. Have you been wringing out your hair with a regular cotton towel? Now is the time to stop and develop a healthier routine. Caring for your curls is super important as you already know in order to have defined, healthy and happy curls.

A microfiber towel is a special towel designed to be super soft to the touch. During the manufacturing process of the material of microfiber, the fiber loops are made much tighter and smaller- this means the surface is smooth and will glide against your hair.

What are the benefits of using a microfiber towel for curly hair?

Frizz prevention is a huge benefit. Less drying time due to the super absorbency powers of the microfiber gets another ”yay!” from us. Less frizz and less drying time means you can save time without sacrificing results.
