I have been using those dollar store type hair towels for years now. They do the job, sort of, I mean they are better than trying to balance a giant bath towel on your head, but they really do not absorb much. I am speaking from the perspective of a person with short fine hair too! I just had become accustomed to these dollar store hair towels and never really thought about finding another option! Too bad for me as I have been seriously missing out!
Here is my cheapo dollar store hair towel.
As soon as I got the Luxe Beauty Essentials Plush Microfiber Hair Towel in the mail I ran and grabbed my old one to compare, so my hair was dry when I first tried them both side by side, or head by head, or whatever ...
And now ... my Luxe Towel! Hello .... see the big difference!? I sure felt it!
I felt it so much so I instantly did this ...
Sorry for the blurry photo, but who needs a clear shot of my trash can. Also someone put a recyclable item in there, I have to talk to the family about this, and I have proof! So yeah, that is where the old hair towel went. Bye old hair towel, you have served me, not well, but you served me nonetheless.
And now, better things moving forward!
Here are some of Beauty By Shea's photos of the towel:
Much better photography! I guess I had mine piled up pretty far on my head but you know what it stayed on! Amazing I never can keep a regular towel on my head and even my dollar store hair towel with the button and elastic loop came off all the time because they are flimsy and stretch out after only a month of use.
This Luxe Beauty Essentials Plush Microfiber Hair Towel from Beauty by Shea totally knocks my old one out of the park! First of all when I opened the package, I felt like I was touching a cloud, or a bunny, or a marshmallow, it is that soft and plush! I totally get why they call it a Luxe towel, as it feels like something from a high dollar hotel. You know, the kind of towel you want to steal ... okay maybe that is just be, doubt it but maybe.
Anyway, so I showered tonight, yes it happens, and I put it on my head as I did my regular after shower routine, clean the ears, face serum, moisturizer, skin cream, hair protectant, (this is about the time I would normally have to take my dollar store towel off as it would be soaked, and my hair would still be wet), what did I do next ... anyway you get the idea, I did my stuffs and then realized, my towel was not only dry, still firmly attached to my head, even though there is no button and elastic loop to put the button through, and most of all DRY! (run on sentence city there)...
I took the towel off and my hair, it was not dry but it was moist, at most. It was like the towel magically sucked the water from my hair! The towel was somewhat damp, but not soaked. I hung it up with a smile and look forward to using it again and I totally want some bath towels made of this stuff! I have to ask Beauty by Shea if they make them, and if not encourage them to do so!
Here is more information from Beauty by Shea:
Microfiber is extremely absorbent and will dry hair faster. Using this towel also will drastically cut time used on heat drying products such as a hair dryer that can damage hair.Best news of all it only costs $15.97 and ships free with Amazon Prime! I have paid well over that in the last two years alone for my cheap hair towels!
So look, I got this free for my review (as you see in the disclaimer below that I have to put there by law, but let me tell you I am very impressed with this towel and I would absolutely buy it if I didn't have this one. I am serious about asking them if they have regular towels in this fabric! Who would not want to wrap themselves up in a marshmallow?
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
