Oftentimes when we talk about the importance of using the correct hair drying tools, we’re referencing products like blow dryers, brushes, and combs. But the drying process starts long before you start to unravel the cords of your favorite hot tools. It begins with the fabric you swaddle your just-washed strands in.

Keeping your tresses healthy and strong involves more than hair masks and detox shampoos. Believe it or not, your shower linens can both positively and negatively impact your overall hair health, too. Investing in microfiber hair towels and hair wraps can make all the difference. Microfiber towels are considered one of the best hair styling tools and as towels are typically the first thing your tresses come in contact with post-shampoo, they’re certainly worthy of adding to your haircare collection.

Top Hair Wraps + Microfiber Hair Towels of 2022

Why microfiber hair towels are great for drying hair

Heat is one of the main causes of hair damage — that includes heat from the sun, hot water, and, of course, hot styling tools — and to protect your hair, it’s important to minimize heat exposure as much as possible. Microfiber towels and hair wraps can help: They’re highly absorbent and won’t contribute to friction against hair, due to the shape of the microfibers, explains Amy Stollmeyer, co-founder and lead hairstylist for DesignMe.

“Microfiber hair towels and wraps are gentler and more durable [than traditional cotton towels],” Stollmeyer tells WWD over email, adding these types of towels are also machine washable, anti-microbial and won’t shed the way many traditional towels do. “They are the most user-friendly and effective option in protecting the hair while it dries.” Plus, Stollmeyer says, microfiber towels and hair wraps have a way to secure the end of the towel against the back of your head, effectively eliminating the struggle of regular towels constantly falling.

What’s more, according to Stollmeyer, when twisting wet hair up tightly, coupled with the repeated friction of traditional cotton towels, leads to breakage and excess frizz. However, because microfiber hair towels, hair wraps, and turbans don’t create friction on the hair in the same way that traditionally tufted towels do, experts recommend choosing microfiber towels and hair wraps over their cotton cousins for a gentler and less damaging drying experience. 

When it comes to choosing the best type of microfiber hair towel or hair wrap for your strands, there are three kinds: Towels, wraps, and turbans. All of these options, Stollmeyer says, do the same things for the hair, which is reduce friction and therefore, frizz and breakage, as well as absorb more water so you can use less heat later on. Whichever type you choose will ultimately boil down to personal preference, though hair length can also be a deciding factor.  For example, shorter hair lengths are easy to fit into turbans, while longer hair lengths twist and secure nicely into towels and wraps, notes Stollmeyer.

Microfiber towels and hair wraps also come in a variety of colors, patterns, prices, sizes, and material blends, such as polyester, bamboo, or cotton. The appropriate size of a hair wrap or microfiber towel will depend on your hair length. For hair that reaches the lower back or is very thick, Stollmeyer recommends opting for a larger size (around 20 inches x 40 inches), rather than the more standard size, which is 26 inches x 10 inches or 28 inches x 12 inches.

The best way to dry your hair

Like styling techniques, how you go about drying your hair depends on two things: Hair type and hair health.

  • For straight to wavy textures: 1 A/B/C, 2 A/B: Stollmeyer tells WWD that once hair air dries fully, hot tools (curling iron, flat iron, or blowdryer) can be used “gently,” ideally on a low-medium heat setting, to smooth strands.  When blow drying hair, “direct your hair dryer from roots to ends only to avoid damage,” Stollmeyer says. “If you aim the dryer in the reverse, pointing upwards from the ends, you will flare the cuticle open and create a lot of surface frizz, more dehydration, and encourage split ends or breakage. You will also dry the hair faster when pointing the dryer from roots to ends.”
  • For wavy, curly, coily textures:  2 C, 3 A/B/C, 4 A/B/C: According to Stollmeyer, using a gentle, soft microfiber towel, cotton t-shirt or bamboo hair wrap is even more vital part for curly hair textures. These types of towels and hair wraps help remove excess water, without roughing up the surface of the hair. “Apply hair products when hair is wet, starting with leave-in treatments and hydration first. Then layer products with hold, such as balms, gels, or mousses, to define and seal,” says Stollmeyer. She adds that it is important to apply a heat protectant before using hot tools. “If you don’t have time to air dry, use a diffuser on low-medium heat or low air setting and hoover over and around the hair.”
  • For damaged hair: It’s always a good idea to limit your hair’s heat exposure, but it’s crucial to avoid using hot tools and taking super hot showers if you’re experiencing damage or split ends. Stollmeyer recommends rinsing hair under cool water for a few seconds after conditioning, then either let your hair air dry or remove excess water with a microfiber hair towel or hair wrap. “I suggest squeezing out excess water, then applying a gentle detangle with a lightweight leave-in treatment or heat protector, and then wrap your hair up.”

Kitsch Microfiber Hair Towel

Best for short hair

  • Fabric: Microfiber
  • Color options: Blush 
  • Machine washable: Yes

It seems like everyone is buzzing about Kitsch — their claw clips, face masks, towel scrunchies, and, you guessed it, their microfiber hair towel. According to reviewers, the hair wrap from the self-financed, woman-owned company significantly cuts down blow dryer usage: One commenter writes, “I went from a 20-minute blow-dry to a 3-minute blow-dry.” Another adds, “It’s incredible how fast it takes the moisture out of the hair.” Per its product description, and judging from the reviews, the towel was designed to fit all hair types and lengths, though hairstylist at Lrn Beauty, Nicolette Rauchut, notes it’s especially great for short to medium hair. Rauchut tells WWD that the Kitsch microfiber hair towel “fits more like a hat,” so it might be a more comfortable option than competitors.

Aquis Microfiber Hair Towel

Most sustainable

  • Fabric: Microfiber (76% polyester and 24% nylon)
  • Size range: 19” x 39”, 19” x 44”
  • Color options: 9, including Hot Pink, Lemonade, and Sea Grass
  • Machine washable: Yes

Aquis is on a twofold mission to both help your hair stay healthy and to make hair towels sustainable. The brand’s beloved microfiber hair towel is durable enough to last up to 100 washes without releasing microplastics or toxic dye into our water systems, making it one of the most eco-friendly options on the market. The environmentally-sound bath linen is made from the brand’s super moisture-wicking Aquitex fabric, which cuts down drying time by a whopping 50 percent. The hair wrap secures the hair solely by tucking the end of the towel under the nape of your neck, meaning that it might be better suited for short to medium lengths, as longer, heavier hair will be tricky to manage.

Best bamboo

  • Fabric: Bamboo Microfiber
  • Size range: 25″x10″
  • Color options: 3, including Striped, Grey, and Galaxy (multicolor)

Bamboo is grossly underrated when it comes to hair care, but Ellewin’s microfiber hair towel makes a strong argument for why you should give it a second look. Made from a blend of bamboo charcoal fibers as well as traditional microfibers, it can hold up to seven times its weight in water — directly from your wet strands. The best part is that the towel dries without losing its hold, so you can count on it to stay in place while you mosey around the house.

Amazon reviewers rushed to the comments section to sing its praises. “I have 3 feet of thick hair, so naturally it takes about four forevers to dry,” one user says. “This towel cut the literal half-hour it typically takes to stop dripping, to my whole head of hair being 70% dry in about ten minutes.”

DevaCurl DevaTowel Anti-Frizz Microfiber Towel

Best for curly hair

  • Fabric: Microfiber
  • Size range: 39″ x 20″
  • Color options: Grey
  • Machine washable: Yes, but must hang dry

Curly hair types have it rough when it comes to drying their coily, corkscrew, or ultra wavy strands. Any level of bend requires specific kinds of hairbrushes, styling products, and blowout tools, like diffusers, to make the process less grueling. On the bright side, microfiber hair towels might just be the best line of defense. DevaCurl’s DevaTowel is made of smooth, super-absorbent microfiber that is gentle enough to keep curls intact. You can also use it in a few different ways, like scrunching your curls upward with the towel, or twisting your hair upward, like you would a wrap or turban. However, users do note that unlike other microfiber towels, this one does not have a button or loop to fasten, so longer hair types might experience some fallout. One commenter admits they use the towel as a pillowcase so they can sleep with wet hair and wake up with less frizz.

Best for wavy hair

  • Fabric: Lisse crepe Cotton blend microfiber
  • Size range: 41” x 19”, 41” x 24”
  • Color options: White
  • Machine washable: Yes

The DuraComfort Essentials Anti-Frizz Microfiber Hair Towel currently has over 9,000 positive reviews on Amazon.

It can be used as a traditional towel or can be wrapped into a turban, thanks to the product’s flexible, stretchy seam. A handful of wavy hair types rated DuraComfort’s hair towel 5 out of 5-stars due to its high absorbency and ability to tame frizz. One reviewer with “fairly long, extremely thick, wavy hair that tends to frizz” explained that her old routine (which involved towel drying, applying a leave-in conditioner, and air drying) wasn’t cutting it, saying that they’d “be left with staticky/frizz-prone hair.” But purchasing the DuraComfort microfiber hair towel proved to be a “life-changer,” adding that it “soaks up probably at least 50% more water than using a regular towel or cotton t-shirt. Dries quickly too, I can get a good 3 or 4 uses out of this before I need to throw it in the wash. Cannot recommend enough!”
