There are a few styling staples amongst those ladies that have had curly/ natural hair for a long time an old t-shirt or a microfiber towel will most likely be one of them.
These ladies are familiar with the benefits of using microfiber towels and cotton fabrics when drying your hair. However, statistics show that a lot of ladies are still unaware of the benefits of towelling one’s hair the right way. Hair towelling with a microfiber towel or cotton/old t-shirt can make a big difference to one’s curl pattern and the way our hair behaves during the day. This method of drying one’s hair is beneficial to all hair textures not just to those with curly or natural hair.
For those that are uncertain or unaware of the advantages of cotton based materials and microfiber towels use for hair drying, below is a summary of the benefits:
- Heat damage is attributed as one of the main reasons for deficiency in hair growth in an otherwise healthy female. If you want to reduce the amount of heat you use on your hair avoid use of hair dryers or other heat releasing drying appliances by using the microfiber towel. For those that air dry completely, the fibres absorbs more water from the hair than a regular terry towel providing a more efficient and healthy way for drying one’s hair.
- Microfiber towels and cotton based materials can be used for the plopping/ scrunching method that helps give your curls more definition
- Reduces frizz as the fibre are gentle on the hair cuticles unlike terry towels that pull out hair strands which leads to frizz.
- It is easier to wash a microfiber towel as grease and dirt do not stick to the fibre unlike traditional towels.
