Microfiber hair towels are one of the finest, most game-changing additions you can make to your haircare routine—especially if you have curly, damaged, or hair that is prone to frizz and flyaways. Regular bath towels include small nubs that rough up the cuticle of your locks as it dries, resulting in knots, flyaways, and less-than-healthy strands over time. Microfiber towels, on the other hand, absorb excess moisture to reduce drying time while also reducing friction.

The end result? Smoother hair and more defined curls, which will provide a better foundation for your styling routine, whether you’re air-drying, diffusing, or blowing it out.
