Towels are generally made to absorb water, whether from surfaces, floors, our bodies or the hair. The main purpose still remains “absorption”.
Some of us get to know different towel types just by touching them to feel the softness, thickness and so on. These set of people tend to think that they can tell a good towel this way. Oh well, if what is important to you is just the thickness of the towels, then, this method might work for you. However, for someone like me, who does a lot of research before purchasing anything, (especially when it concerns my hair), I’d be concerned about the harshness on my hair and how much water it can absorb.
Anything that concerns a woman’s hair requires conscious effort because as they say, “A woman’s beauty is in her hair”.
Part of keeping the hair beautiful, healthy and rich is the toweling process after washing.
I can bet that a lot of ladies out there just grab any towel they can get their hands on to dry their hair after washing (this could even include their normal bath towels), and rub it all over the hair effortlessly, and in no particular way that suggests extreme care for the hair.
This should NOT be the case, as the best towel to use to dry your hair is… “ The Microfiber towel”.
Let’s look at some of the numerous benefits of using a Microfiber towel to dry your hair after washing;
- A Gentle Dry
Microfiber towels can dry your hair in half the time of a traditional towel. The tiny fibers absorb water without drying out your hair completely.
The gentle dry comes in handy when you are in a rush to get your hair styled and get out the door. The towel will soak up the excess moisture but leave enough dampness that you can use a product or scrunch with your hands to get a low-maintenance curl (for natural textures).
You can also use a microfiber towel to dry hair before using a blow dryer to style. This way, your hair isn’t dripping wet but it’s wet enough to curl, straighten, and style as you like using a brush and blow dryer.
Quick drying microfiber hair towels will change the way you think about towel drying your hair.
You know how microfiber towels can help when you’re in a rush to wash and go, but what if you like to take your time getting ready? Can the microfiber towel still work for you? Yes – and here’s why.
The best microfiber drying towels are lightweight and smooth to the touch. So instead of having a bulky towel around your head, you can replace it with a lighter, more comfortable version. Some brands of microfiber towels even have buttons or Velcro to keep the microfiber towel in place if you’re moving around to get dressed or do your makeup.

- Get Rid of Frizz
Using a microfiber towel for hair can reduce unwanted frizz for straight or curly hair. The fibers are gentle on hair reducing the friction that causes frizz.
But wait, will my hair look flat and volume-less? Nope! That’s the magic of the microfiber towel!
By allowing your hair to stay moisturized, you can keep the volume and eliminate the frizz.
- Suitable for Curls
If you have curly hair you know that not all hair products are made with your hair in mind. Lucky for you, the microfiber towel is perfect for curly hair. Curls can stay bouncy without any effort at all. You can even sleep with a microfiber towel in your hair and wake up with curls that are ready to go.
Traditional towels require you to rub or massage your hair to get rid of excess water, but this can damage the curls. Microfiber towels dry your hair without any additional work or contact.
Stop worrying about drying your curls and keeping their shape. Get a microfiber towel and stress less!
- Breakage Be Gone
Hair breakage can occur for a number of reasons, but using a sub-par towel shouldn’t be one of them. When drying your hair with a cotton towel, your hair may break or become brittle. This affects the way it looks and feels.
When you rub a cotton towel over your head trying to dry it as fast as you can you are actually stimulating more oils from the scalp. The oils can make your hair look greasy or frizzy.
Cotton towels may also cause dead-ends or split ends– eek! But the gentle dry of microfiber towels will keep your hair stronger and prevent the follicle from breaking or becoming damaged during the drying process.
Did I hear you say… it’s expensive?
A single microfiber towel usually costs about the same as a single bath towel (depending on where you shop). But you can wash a microfiber towel up to 500 times – which is far above the standard bath towel.
The microfiber towel is good for multiple uses before washing too!
Investing in a microfiber towel will prevent you from buying and replacing bath towels every time they get worn out. The microfiber towels also tend to keep their color and texture better than traditional towels due to the tiny fibers.
