Since deciding to take better care of my curls, I started realizing it’s the little things in my hair routine that result in the most damage. Along with reducing the use of heat styling, using the right type of hairbrush, sleeping with softer pillowcases, I've also stopped doing something as simple as drying my hair with a terry towel. That's right, the most second-nature thing when it comes handling your wet hair can also be the main culprit for frizz, brittle texture and split ends — at least that's the case for my unruly curl pattern — which is why I've started plopping my hair.
In case you haven't yet heard of the term, this drying and curl-defining technique is popular amongst millions of TikTokers. Plopping consists of priming your damp hair with leave-in cream, consistent scrunching and wrapping it with a T-shirt (it dries the hair without absorbing the necessary moisture) for about an hour. But in case you don't have — or want to commit — the time to plop your hair, a specially designed microfiber hair towel can safely dry your hair without the damage of blowdryer or a traditional bath towel.
One that Amazon shoppers are loving is the Evolatree Super Absorbent Anti-Frizz Microfibre Hair Towel which is currently on sale for just $15.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $15 (originally $25)
What is it?
Unlike bath towels, this one is made to prevent breakage and split ends while creating less friction on the hair. Made with the brand’s unique microfibre technology, it is said to dry hair safer and faster than any other tool or solution.
How does it work?
Simply slip over your wet or damp hair and twist into a turban, as you would a normal towel, and hook the loop over the button to hold it into position. No need to deep scrunch or ring the water in your hair out, just wear it and use the time drying time to focus on getting your makeup done or doing errands around the house! It’s the ultimate time-saving hair hack!
What are shoppers saying?
Backed up by more than 2,100 global reviews and a 4.3-star rating5, customers agree that the Evolatree Super Absorbent Anti-Frizz Microfibre Hair Towel “works like a charm.”
“I bought this for my daughter who has slightly wavy hair that tends to frizz in dry winter weather. She wears this after washing her hair and it has made a huge difference! Her curls are more pronounced and the frizz is very minimal. Now she wants more,” reads one review.
“I love this thing. It's so much more comfortable than a regular towel and stays while I get things done and let my health almost dry. I absolutely love it and will recommend to all my friends. Thank you,” echoes another.
“Frizzy hair? Say no more!” says another reviewer. “This hair turban is absolutely amazing. It took me a bit to figure out how to use it but with the help of YouTube, it was not hard to figure out! My hair is definitely not as frizzy as using a cotton towel and it is nice to have a separate hair towel that is for sure.”
