And now it’s time for… the benefits of using The Scrunch Towel;

▪ You just need to pat dry which creates a lot less damage to the hair cuticles
▪ Hair is more fragile when wet and if rubbed it leads to broken cuticles and frizziness

That’s right! … we have released the new CurlyEllie Scrunch Towel!
All of your issues with frizz and tangled hair will be massively minimised!
What is microfiber and how is it made?
- Microfiber is made with a blend of fibers – usually consisting of polyester and polyamide or nylon.
- It’s properties mean that it is highly absorbent. The initial microfiber weave is made of whole fibers which means it repels moisture - only once the fibers have been split can it then become absorbable.
- The texture is very soft to touch so drying the body and hair after showering allows for a luxurious and pampered feel.
- Microfiber is a highly durable material which means that it will last a lot longer than cotton and other natural fibers towels so it’s worth investing in.
How do I use the towel?
When you’ve finished washing your hair and you dry using a cotton towel, a lot of the moisture is drawn out and your curls are left looking and feeling dry, frizzy and lifeless.
What microfiber does is catch the excess droplets of water but without soaking up too much. This is perfect for potential styling immediately after washing. With the hair still wet, you can apply as much of our products as necessary for your hair type and leave to dry naturally.
Curly hair is the driest hair type, so if you can find a way to keep the moisture locked in, the more your hair will benefit and shine at its best.
What causes hair to become dry and brittle?
Too often, people blow dry and straighten their hair which in time dries it out more and your natural curl pattern isn’t as defined as it once was. Not only does heat styling affect your hair over time but even through environmental factors such as a hot day in summer can dry the hair out so any moisture loss needs to be replaced. Humidity is when fizziness becomes an issue so this is where using the right products and materials on your hair will help significantly.
How long will it take before I see a difference?
- As with any new product and technique, your hair needs time to adjust and work with what it is being given.
- Sometimes things work and sometimes not. With our Scrunch Towel, you can relax knowing that there are only benefits from using one.
- Even from the first use you should notice a difference as your hair will contain a lot more moisture than the previous wash if you were using a towel made from another material.

If you are into co-washing and not shampooing regularly, you might find that, after a while, your hair feels weighed down and looks dull because the silicone coating attracts debris and dirt.
