The Benefits of a Microfiber Towel

The Benefits of a Microfiber Towel

By Noor van Gemert

You must have heard of a microfiber towel and maybe even used it somewhere around your house. At first it may appear as a regular cotton cloth. But microfiber is made from a mix of polyester and polyamide. Once these two materials are woven together the strands create a surface area covered with millions of spaces between the fibers. The microfiber strands are so tiny for the human eye to see, it is at least about one-sixteenth the size of a human hair! That explains the softness and cloudy feeling of it!

To wash the microfiber towel you just need a little amount of detergent and no softeners. You can wash it at a low temperature or just wash it quickly with your hands, since it needs to be hung immediately after washing. You don’t need to use a tumble dryer, because it will have a negative effect on the quality of the microfiber towel. In other words, microfiber saves you money, outlasts other cloths, is safe for the environment, cleans with water and contains no harmful chemicals.

But did you know that the fine and soft structure of the microfiber towel is the little detail you were missing in your (curly) hair routine? The benefits of using the microfiber towel of Curls ´N Clouds for your hair are endless. A little side note: it is Curly Girl Method (CGM) approved! Yay!

  1. Doesn’t cause frizz.
    The microfiber towel is soft for the hair and therefore it will not cause frizz and split ends. It also prevents your hair from getting damaged in its weakest and vulnerable state. Scrunch your wet hair with our ultra-absorbent microfiber towel, instead of rubbing or wringing it in a terry cloth.
  2. Dries hair quickly.
    This is good because the faster you get rid of the water after your shower is done, the faster your hair cuticles close back up. Your hair will be less damaged by using the microfiber towel on a regular basis.
  3. Comfortable and lightweight.
    Microfiber towels are a good alternative for your regular cotton cloth. It is extremely soft and much lighter and that makes it comfortable to use. This also will prevent breakage, which is the key for length retention. Your hair strands will not get stuck or pulled down by the weight of the towel.

Our soft microfiber towel really does put your curls in the clouds!
