So I’m learning all the curly girl secrets for reducing the frizz factor. One ultra-important tip? Don’t dry your hair with a towel! Those rough terrycloth towels are tough on hair.
Soft t-shirts are the choice for those in the know. For a few months now I’ve had various t-shirts hanging in the bathroom next to my regular towel. Usually I dry my hair with an old, ripped shirt that is no longer wearable.
Let me tell you, holey t-shirt is great bathroom decor.
Fortunately, Lakeshore Dry Goods is here to rescue my hair and my bathroom with their adorable Sunrise Bliss t-shirt towels. Each towel is made from Global Organic Textile Standard organic cotton and is sewn in small batches in Detroit, Michigan. The adorable patterns and colors give the towels a fun, retro vibe, while the thick cotton absorbs well and dries quickly.
After shampooing, I use my Sunrise Bliss towel to scrunch my hair upwards, gently restoring my natural curl pattern. Then I use a technique called plopping, where I flip my hair upside down and wrap it tightly to my head with my Sunrise Bliss towel. This gives my hair lift while allowing the breathable cotton fabric to dry my hair a bit. After 15-20 minutes, I take my hair out of the towel, shake out my curls, and allow my hair to air dry.
I truly love this towel. Ever since I tried it I’ve used it almost every single time I dry my hair.
A Sunrise Bliss towel from Lakeshore Dry Goods is a wonderful, little luxury if you are looking for some organic, made-in-the-USA self-care. It’s the perfect gift for a girl headed off to college — we all know those communal dorm bathrooms need a little brightening. The towel is also a nice treat for new moms who may need some gentle encouragement; they can use the organic cotton towel as a travel blanket or a burp cloth until they actually find time to wash their hair.
