This is a little product review follow-up to yesterday’s post… so many of you had such great suggestions for young C. One thing that kept coming up is towel use on curly natural hair…. and I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this product before. I use it on the daily!
My curls absolutely despise heavy terry towels — I inevitably wind up with more shedding than I want. Which led me on a wild goose chase for the perfect hair towel. Currently I’m using CurlEase, a super thin, super absorbent “towel” that soaks up the water from my thirsty hair in no time at all. If I knew exactly what kind of cloth this was, I’d tell ya to go to Joann’s and by yourself some… but I honestly have not a clue. It’s as thin and light as linen or cheesecloth, but definitely way more absorbent.
I got my Curlease towel at Bed, Bath, and Beyond — gotta love those 20% off discount coupons you get in the mail! But you can also get yours from the sistas at Sistas Place, or Canadian bellas can try Honey Fig.
Some bellas find that Curlease isn’t quite absorbent enough, and a microfiber towel is also a great investment — get one here on Amazon — some bellas love them, others say that they feel like velcro on their hair and actually create more frizz. I don’t know, because I’ve never tried one. Have you?
What kind of towel do you dry your natural tresses with?
