I saw this ridiculous advertisement for a hair towel and my interest was piqued. I knew nothing would work as well as that ad promised but I figured anything help drying my hair would be appreciated and I wanted something to keep my wet hair up while I was getting ready. I don’t support companies that advertise like that so I searched online for a hair towel.
I ended up choosing the Kitsch Microfiber Hair Towel because it was on Amazon, had great reviews, had a button, and was slightly cuter than others. It seemed like a more legit brand that others on Amazon.
My hair was definitely more dry in these pictures than right after the shower and I attribute some of that to the hair towel. But, I had been doing my makeup for a while and during that time my hair would have air-dried if I didn’t have a towel on and I don’t feel like the results would be much different.
- The Button! – Hands down, the best thing about this is that it has a button. The hair towel is easy to put on and it actually stays put thanks to the button and the elastic along the rim of the towel. I love that I don’t have to tie anything and I don’t worry about it falling out.
- Cute – This one has a pretty rose gold button and tag which makes it seem just a bit more sophisticated than others
- Hair Fits – My hair is long/thick. It is slightly longer than the towel but it is easy to tuck the ends into the towel.
- On Amazon – I always love free shipping and free returns
- Does NOT significantly reduce drying time. I feel like my hair is drier after using the towel but I don’t feel like it is drier than using a different type of towel or even just letting it air dry when I do a long makeup routine.
- Doesn’t live up to the ads. The advertisement says that it will cut drying time in half and I did not notice that much of a difference.
- Itchy tag. This was a popular comment on the online reviews and I will agree….the cute rose gold tag is super itchy and is placed to be right on the ear. Why???
- There is an elastic loop that you put around the button to hold the towel on and the loop is inside the towel so it makes it a bit hard to find when your hair is in there.
Do Microfiber Hair Towel Turbans Work?
The Kitsch Microfiber Hair Towel did not have the drying power that I hoped for so I can’t recommend this product. I’m still happy to have one and use it regularly but am tempted to see if there is another out that that would work better.
I would recommend getting this style of hair turban with the button though.
Do you know of any hair towel that would be better at absorbing water? Share in the comments!
