I found out about the t-shirt when I first joined Hairlista. The idea of the t-shirt method is that it is as absorbent as a towel, but cuts down on the frizz and risk of breakage.
Another benefit to this method is that it is less bulky than a regular towel. The t-shirt method has proven to work well for both relaxed and natural ladies. For some curly girls, it works wonders!
The microfiber material is a selling point all its own. When this fiber comes in contact with your hair it is said to be more gentle and reduce the risk of split ends. Microfibers towel range from $12-25 so it leaves room to fit into anyone’s budget.
The Sko Towel happens to be one of my favorites of all these methods. It has fabric similar to that of a microfiber towel*, and on the other side is a satin like material that faces your hair.
The risk of your hair getting damaged with this towel is very low and absorbs a TON of water from your hair. Clearly a healthier alternative than blow drying but also just as time consuming to using other towels. Out of all the towel options the Sko Towel is the healthier option which is set at the price point of $39. You will have to decide on whether you want to make that investment for your hair.
If your goal is to simply dry your hair, any of these methods will work for you. If you want to go a step further and take into account the health of your hair on your journey, test out any of these options and see what works best for you.
During my relaxed days, I thought my hair dryer* was the best thing out there and no one could tell me any differently. My transitioning phase I was team t-shirt method and air dry. Now, my heart belongs to the Sko Towel and air drying afterwards.
Your hairstyle and the point you are at in your hair journey will determine what is the best option for you, there is really no one size fits all choice here. What is your favorite method to use when drying your hair?
