You may have heard a lot of buzz around using a microfiber towel on wash day instead of the conventional towels we've become used to. If you regularly visit a hair salon, you might notice that they also use these special towels when drying your hair. But have you wondered why a microfiber towel is most recommended for textured hair?
Not to worry curl friends. We're here to help!
You may have noticed when using regular cotton towels that those little ringlets have a tendency to snag your curls, coils or kinks when drying your hair. It's very possible that you've even lost a strand or two due to this. This is where the microfiber version comes into play!
Do you use a type of microfiber towel to clean sensitive surfaces in your home to prevent scratching? In a similar way, the special design of a microfiber towel creates less friction on the hair. This is especially helpful to those of us with curly textures because friction leads to frizz... and who wants that?!
With less friction, hair is less prone to breakage which is key for length retention. Microfiber towels also promote moisture retention to prevent dry, brittle hair, and will amazingly cut your drying time in half! It's one of the best things a curly girl can have in her hair care arsenal!
