Are you tired of your hair putting the dry in blow-dry? If so, you’ve likely been resorting to a towel or air drying, which both have their cons. Guess what, it’s probably time for a microfiber towel or turban for your hair.
The capabilities of microfiber technology in microfiber towel fabrics are far beyond that of their cotton counterparts. They are classified by fiber 1.0 denier or smaller. Microfibers can attach to the liquid or dirt being processed and can absorb up to seven or eight times their weight in liquid.
When swiped across a surface, they can produce a static charge that sucks in dirt and moisture. Imagine this happening to your hair—it’s like a blow-dry minus the clunky equipment, heat, and time styling.
Here are some of the deets on why exactly microfiber towels are a major must.
Who Doesn’t Want Extra Time?
Using a microfiber towel can cut your drying time significantly. The fibers’ impressive ability to pick up moisture is no comparison to attempting with a cotton towel or t-shirt. If you plan to blow-dry following a half towel dry, this will speed up your process and ensure the driest strands possible before doing so, requiring less heat to be applied and less damage.
The health of your hair can seriously benefit from a microfiber towel. Because the fibers are so much finer than your hair, strands run through them, creating a sort of exfoliating effect. This can help to lift excess build-up from leave-in conditioners, or serums applied, as well as stubborn residue from styling products.
Microfiber towels lift moisture gently without creating the force and friction of cotton. Unlike cotton towels, microfiber reduces friction, protecting the strands from breakage, split ends, and flyaways.
