In order to fully understand why a cotton towel can be damaging to your hair, you need to understand what water does to your strands. Water (especially warm), causes your hair cuticle to swell up and open, which leaves your strands prone to frizz and damage. Our strands are composed of proteins called keratin. When wet, our strands changes its structure, and forms a hydrogen bond.

Smaller, lightweight, and more comfortable than a massive cotton towel, microfiber hair turbans are well-suited to dry your hair efficiently without the frizz and frustration. If you have been thinking about making the switch, 'hair' are five wonderful reasons to consider transitioning to microfiber hair towels.

1. You Will Cut Your Drying Time In Half

Microfiber is classified as any fiber with a single denier or less, and are approximately 100 times finer than human hair. This creates a larger surface area to absorb moisture. After wrapping your hair in a microfiber towel for around 20-30 minutes, it will be almost totally dry.

2. Reduces Frizz & Breakage

Conventional towels are rough in texture and can cause a lot of static build-up and frizz to your hair. With no need to rub the hair to extract water, there is less strain and friction imposed on your strands, resulting in less breakage over time.

3. A Gentle Approach To Drying Your Hair

There is less friction involved when drying your hair with a microfiber towel. Microfiber towels are comprised of a soft, smoother material that is suitable for textured hair types which are often more fragile in nature. Our TROOTH Turban quickly soaks up water without leaving the hair feeling excessively dry. Wrapping a standard, heavy cotton towel on your hair might be heavy enough to cause breakage around your hair's roots, leading to short and broken hairs near the hairline.

4. They Are Easy To Pack & Care For

Microfiber towels are noticeably thinner than bulky cotton towels. The space-saving design makes our TROOTH TURBAN easy to pack. It is important to wash our microfiber towel separate from cotton towels. Otherwise, you will find lint from the cotton towels all over the microfiber towel. Also, using fabric softeners aren't necessary. 

5. Easy To Use

The unique twist and loop design makes the TROOTH Turban stay in place, and eliminates the discomfort of a heavy towel falling off. Place the TROOTH TURBAN over the back or front of your head. Twist your hair up in the hair turban, and pull the tail end to the button and loop.
