HAIR DRYING GLOVES ARE A THING

If you know me, you know I love trying gimmicky things because sometimes you end up finding a diamond in the rough! Enter hair drying gloves. I got these out of curiosity and they ended up being a fast favorite. I don’t use them on my clients but I do use them at home. Often I go to put mousse, curl cream, leave-in or wave spray in my hair and end up with more dried onto my hands than my hair. Not only do these help with that, but they also helped me cut down on drying time. Here’s what I know for sure about these handy things…

There are a couple kinds on the market. For finer hair or anyone wanting to add some soft texture to their curls/waves I would recommend THESE GLOVES because they’re more like a towel which tends to build texture. But if your mane concern is to keep curls or waves calm, cool & collected, THESE GLOVES are your best bet because they are made of microfibers which we know helps with frizz.

By trial and error, I’ve discovered the best way to use hair drying gloves is to apply the product with your bare hands first, rinse your hands, then put the gloves on. Begin scrunching at the ends and work your way up into the root. These are so absorbent and remove surface moisture quickly. These would be particularly good for anyone wanting to cut back on their heat styling time. Think about it… if you get into the roots with these gloves and absorb a bit of the moisuture before blowdrying, you’ll definitely trim down the time you’ll spend pointing hot air at your hair and scalp, without having to wait for the hair to air-dry. And it’s 100000 times easier to get in there with “towel fingers” than an actual towel. Feel me??
