On the subject of healthy hair, I have two, okay maybe 3 major points that can drastically make a difference in it’s health — and that’s before even waiving a single hair product or supplement in your face. If you caught my segment for Amazon StyleCode Live, (13 minutes 50 seconds into the show, video clip above!), you saw me chatting about all the benefits of a Microfiber towel – hopefully after watching, I’ve convinced you to never use a conventional towel again.
The breakage is real people. Your hair is most vulnerable when your hair is wet, drying it with a rough towel (just stroke your hand across your towel, does it feel smooth?), it should. My sister and I had very frizzy, curly hair growing up. We were told by a hair stylist to either use a microfiber towel or a soft tee-shirt but never to use a towel on our strands. This was in 2005 before any articles were coming out about this stuff. I credit so much of my hair health to this, and especially if you suffer from breakage or frizzy hair, this should be on your radar (I’m also a huge fan of just letting your hair air dry sans towel).
