Drying the hair before you go out is a very important part of hair care. If you go out in wet hair or start straightening your strands with your hair straightener, it can damage your hair even more. So always try to air dry or blow-dry your hair. Natural air dry is the healthier option as it does not need any heat and it is natural. But before air drying, you need to let the water out from the hair.
So, in this article, you are going to know, which one is better drying your hair – T-shirt or microfiber towel. Without further ado let’s begin the comparison.
Dry With T-Shirt
We have been telling all the time that sleeping on silk pillowcases or silk scarf is good for your hair health where cotton pillowcases or bonnets cause damages to hair. So, you may get confused when we say to dry your hair with a cotton t-shirt. The bedsheets and the pillowcases made with low-quality cotton which is usually rough. But the t-shirts are generally made with good quality cotton which is soft and smooth and reduces the risk of damaging your hair.
We have been testing and experimenting drying out hairs with t-shirts for a long time and never have experienced popping breakage. Using a t-shirt to dry your hair takes about 10 minutes and whether your hair is big or short, thick or thin; you will get less frizz and minimal curl definition. However, there is only one demerit using t-shirts to dry your hair. T-shirts do not absorb a huge amount of water from your hair. So, you need to squeeze the t-shirt and disperse the excess water from it and again use it on your hair.
So, why you should use a t-shirt to dry your hair? We recommend using t-shirts as it is cheap, super available and perhaps the best option while traveling. If you do not have any microfiber towel with you right now, t-shirts can be your best solution. Besides, if your towel is wet, it needs a longer time to become dry and it also takes more space in your backpack. However, a good quality microfiber towel always will be the better option than using a –shirt to dry your hair.
Dry With Microfiber
Usually, we use the normal/regular towel to dry out the hair water. In recent studies, it has come out that using the regular towel on wet hair to dry it is harmful to human tresses. The stands of the towel are thicker than the hair stands which is harsh for the hair. As a result, it can cause dryness, frizziness and unmanageable hair.
Instead of a normal towel, microfiber is much less harmful to the hair. It especially made for human hair which is gentle and causes almost no harm. The stands of the microfiber are thinner than the hair and also smoother. So, whenever you dry out your hair with a microfiber towel the hair will become less frizzy and get smoother. Your hair can be manageable all day long. You can visibly see the result after using the normal towel and the microfiber towel. You will also need fewer products to tame down the hair if you use a microfiber towel.

Microfiber towels can also dry out the hair faster than the regular towel. By using it you do not need to rub the hair to dry out. Instead, just grab the wet hair with a microfiber towel and let it do its job. For this reason, there will be almost no breakage of your hair while using the microfiber. It creates minimum friction with the hairs as well. Though it does not need much time to dry the hair, yet it keeps the necessary moistures in the hair so that the hairs do not tend to get extra dry which will result in less frizzy hair.
However, you have to make sure you are getting a good quality microfiber towel. Otherwise, it will do no good to your hair. On the other hand, it will be as harmful or sometimes even more as a regular cotton towel. A good quality microfiber towel is long-lasting. You do not have to buy it frequently if it’s a high-quality one.
