Five Microfiber Hair Towels Worth Buying Right Now

These gentle, time-saving tools will completely change your post-shower hair routine.

Does your hair seem frizzier than normal? Even worse: Perhaps you're experiencing more breakage. Whatever the case may be, the method you use to dry your hair could be to blame. Using traditional terry cloths to roughly towel dry hair is deleterious to your strands and can lead to both frizz and breakage. Enter microfiber towels. Made from ultra-soft, non-snag fabric, they speed up drying time sans damage. Ahead, some of the best microfiber hair towels on the market today—so you can try out these routine-changing tools for yourself.
