The Curly Co. MicroFiber Hair Towel is a premium, extra-large towel designed for drying curly hair. If you have naturally or chemically curled hair, you know how difficult it can be to care for curls, as curls can quickly look dry and become frizzy when handled too roughly, especially during the drying process.
My hair can frizz up quickly while drying, and it helps to cradle the curls carefully during the curl formation/drying process. You may have seen some videos that a t-shirt is used to wrap and hold a curl in shape while it slowly dries. That principle of a soft cradle for hair to hold the forming curls is improved upon and expedited with a lightweight highly absorbent towel in the Curly Co Hair Towel.
I have thick, long hair which usually does not fit into a bath towel wrapped around my head. For a larger sized towel, it is lightweight and more comfortable. There is a tag to hang the towel, so it dries between uses. It is very soft and has a nice dual sided texture. It is not a thick towel, so it is suitable to pack in a suitcase for travel or to take to the gym to expedite your post-workout hair care routine.
The Curly Co Hair Towel is intended to help dry hair faster, whether straight or curly, with the least amount of heat styling tool usage. It is very absorbent, there is no need to rub the hair to remove moisture, it just soaks up excess water. Rubbing wet hair equals frizz and potential damage. This towel you wrap and leave in place.
USAGE TIP: To hold the towel most securely around my head, I tuck in the wrapped end corner into the looped hanging hook. It does not come undone this way.
I can rarely wait for my hair to entirely dry naturally, but this towel does absorb a fair amount of moisture while I go about my morning routine before drying. My routine is to wash my hair in the shower, dry off, apply moisturizers, get something to eat, apply my sunscreen and concealer, then I dry my hair with my hairdryer. Ideally, if I have enough time, I use the dryer’s cool setting, if not, heat for a rough dry then cool for styling. I like that when I use the My Curly Co. Hair Towel that my hair is about half dry by the time I use the dryer, which saves me time and keeps my hair in better condition.
CONCLUSION: The Curly Co. Hair Towel is a lightweight, soft, high absorbent large towel without bulk. It reduces drying time by wicking moisture from the hair, a real bonus for curly-haired girls. It rolls up neatly and is compact enough to use when traveling or for the gym as well.
