Turn in the hair towel for a T-shirt! When the hair is wet, it becomes weaker and softer. The towel fibers are aggressive on the roots of wet hair, and instead of just absorbing the excess water, the towels also absorb the moisture from the hair, making it especially damaging. A T-shirt, on the other hand, manages to de-frizz the hair, dry it and tame curly hair, without damaging the roots or the appearance of the hair.
