When you jump out of the shower, do you take your sopping wet towel and try to twist it on your head to get your hair dry faster?

Many people do, but often the towel is heavy and already wet! This really doesn't solve the problem, does it?

Hair towels are one of those gifts that you can use over and over again! If you're wondering how to use a hair towel or why it would be a great gift, keep reading!

Why Use A Hair Towel

Hair towels are towels that are specifically designed to sit upon your head and help your hair dry better. It is much smaller and easier to use than a full-on body towel. They're made of different materials that absorb the right amount of moisture. 

Here are some reasons why you want to use a hair towel. 

1. Easy to Use

While giant towels do a great job of drying off our bodies, they're too bulky to tackle hair. It takes a lot of work to keep it on your head and twist it in the right way, especially for those who have shorter hair. And, if you have a lot of hair, it can get really heavy really fast!

The great thing about a hair towel is that it's simple to use and it's comfortable. You simply wrap it on your head for about 20 minutes or so (depending on the thickness of your hair) and you're ready to go!

2. Not Expensive

If you're looking for a fantastic inexpensive gift for the person who loves all the beauty products, hair towels are a great option! 

Most hair towels will not run you past $20 and some are even cheaper! The great thing is that this is an inexpensive gift they (or you!) can use over and over again, and it contributes to the health of your hair. 

3. Reduces Frizz

Many people encounter frizz, and there are plenty of things that contribute to it, like lack of moisture, the structure of hair, humidity, and more. 

Having a hair towel can reduce the amount of frizz you have. The materials that hair towels are made of, like microfiber, are more gentle on your hair. Microfiber can absorb more moisture and help keep more product in your hair as well. 

When your hair is wet, it has a tendency to break easily, so you want to use the most gentle type of material on it as possible. 

4. Easy to Travel With

Do you travel a lot for work or pleasure? Do you find it difficult to use the hotel towels to dry your hair?

The great thing about hair towels is that they're easy to travel with and fit comfortably in any suitcase or overnight bag. And if you're in a hurry because of work commitments, hair towels can dry your hair faster than conventional towels. Using a hair towel also cuts back on using a hairdryer, and frees up time for you to do other things like getting dressed, check the news, or put on makeup. 

5. Keeps Your Hair Healthy

When you rub your wet hair between a towel, the strands of your hair may break. Breakage in your hair can lead to less shine, luster, and even cause it to fall out if it's not treated well.  

Bundling your hair in a hair towel helps keep it healthy and less breakage occurs because the towel absorbs the moisture without rubbing or friction. This means your hair stays healthier. 

How to Use A Hair Towel

Do you get intimidated when you see a perfectly set hair towel on someone's head? Do you think it's similar to tying a bowtie?

The good news is that using a hair towel may take a couple of times to perfect, but after you get the hang of it, you'll look forward to using it more and more. 

While each towel will come with specific directions, here is a general guide to using a hair towel so you know what to expect. 

First, tilt your head forward and place the towel on your head. Turbie Twist hair towels have an elastic loop to keep the towel secured. If this is the case, the side with the elastic loop goes towards the nape of your neck. 

Once the towel is in place on your head make sure all of your hair is tucked inside the towel. Pull the towel forward if you need to ensure all your hair is in. 

Next, twist the towel in whatever direction you prefer as you would with a body towel. When it's fully twisted to your liking, sit up and put the twisted part on top of your head. 

If there's a loop on the back, this is the time to secure the tapered end so the towel stays twisted in place. Keep it on your head for at least 20 minutes, more or less depending on your hair length and texture.
