Lakeshore Dry Good’s Sunrise Bliss organic cotton t-shirt towel is a game-changer for reducing frizz, breakage, tangles, and dry time. The fabric is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified and made with low impact dyes. GOTS certified means that the cotton is harvested naturally and the production process is safe & non-toxic. The fabric is also interlock knit cotton meaning it is the tightest knit and has the smoothest surface. This makes it extremely soft, firm, and absorbent. You won’t have to worry about it stretching out of shape or curling at the edges. They are also lightweight unlike a terrycloth towel. Bonus, the super earth-friendly towels are made in the US out of a small business in Detroit, MI!
Pam, the founder of the Sunrise Bliss t-shirt towel, came up with the idea after sitting on the beach reading a magazine article on a beauty tip advising people to gently dry their hair with a soft t-shirt. This is when her new business venture was born!
Sunrise Bliss t-shirt towels are available in several beautiful limited edition patterns and colors. They come in small (19″ x 35″) or medium (24″ x 40″) to choose from depending on the thickness and length of your hair. My t-shirt towel pictured is the pear pattern.
USING A CONVENTIONAL TOWEL CAN DAMAGE HAIR
Why choose a soft, organic t-shirt towel over your conventional towel to dry your hair? A regular terrycloth towel’s coarse texture can be rough on your wet strands causing craters along the hair shaft and split ends. Ultimately, this weakens your hair and results in breakage. The noticeable signs of damage are dry and frizzy hair.
Designed to towel dry gently
Using the Sunrise Bliss t-shirt towel is simple. Start off by blotting and squeezing excess water gently in sections throughout your hair. After, proceed to wrap your hair. There are several ways to wear your hair towel. My go-to is effortless:
Flip your hair over. At the nape of your neck on your back hairline, hold both sides of the towel firmly and evenly. You can tuck the sides behind your ears or leave it over (I like to leave it over). Twist the towel around all of your hair to the end. You want to keep this tight but not too tight that it causes breakage. Flip the wrapped hair to the back of your head. Tuck the end of the wrap at the nape of your neck to secure it.
I find it so easy to wrap! Wait 5-10 minutes before unwrapping. Sometimes I leave it on for longer while I multi-task because it stays in place perfectly and it is not bulky like your typical bath towel. After, proceed by combing and styling your hair or let it air dry (the healthiest choice for your hair!).
My hair gets enough damage from styling with a flat iron or curling iron so to reduce damage when drying is a must. After using the t-shirt towel several times I did notice a significant difference in how tame my hair became. I rarely leave it down naturally but I felt more inclined to let my natural curls go free after seeing noticeable results.
I have very long, thick, coarse hair that usually takes all day to dry on it’s own. This usually results in me reaching for a blow dryer or washing my hair at night to let it dry while I sleep (waking up to a soaked towel over my pillow isn’t ideal). To my surprise, I did notice a decrease in dry time! It almost cut my dry time in half. The t-shirt towel has amazing absorption capabilities. For someone who literally has to wait 8+ hours for my hair to air dry this is the best part!
I plan to continue to use the Sunrise Bliss t-shirt towel not only for the health of my hair and ease of use, but also because it decreases dry time. This towel is going everywhere with me! It is much more compact than a conventional towel making it easy to fold up and take anywhere I travel. It’s not only great for at home but also for showers at the gym, vacations, pools and more! Did I mention they make great presents? 🙂
