10 of the Best Microfiber Towels for Curly Hair
By Jacqueline Samaroo
Did you know that the towel you use to dry your hair can have a huge impact on the health of your curls? It’s why microfiber towels get so much attention from the natural hair community.
Microfiber towels for curly hair help to protect your strands. Their soft synthetic fibers:
- Reduce frizz and are unlikely to lift your cuticles.
- Quickly soak water out of your hair. That’s important because wet hair is much more susceptible to damage.
- Leave your hair just slightly damp and reduce the time it takes to blow dry your hair.

Here are 10 microfiber towels that give you all those benefits and are budget-friendly, too!
This machine-washable microfiber towel is made of a polyester-polyamide blend that is super absorbent as well as lightweight. It dries your hair quickly and doesn’t feel like a dead weight on your head in the process! The Turbie Twist works well for all hair types but is best suited for curly, fine, or thin hair.
The microfibers in this AQUIS hair towel are made from a blend of polyester and nylon. It has amazing absorbency and comes in a range of colors for you to choose from. This particular towel is designed for fine and delicate hair. It also comes in two sizes: regular and long, both of which pack away easily without being bulky.
Here are a couple of other variations of AQUIS microfiber towels for curly hair you might want to check out.
If you have thick, curly hair, then you know it takes a lot more material to properly sop up excess water from it. AQUIS achieves this (minus added bulkiness) with the waffle design of its microfiber towel for thicker hair.
It gives you the ultra-absorbency of an AQUIS microfiber towel for curly, fine, or thin hair in a convenient, lightweight turban.
Two things that make microfiber towels so popular are how well they sop up water from wet hair and their ability to prevent the frizziness curly hair is prone to. This DuraComfort Essentials towel has got both of those attributes locked! It comes in two sizes and even the larger one (at 41 X 24 inches) still weighs under 8 ounces.
This microfiber towel quickly wicks excess moisture from your curls and makes blow-drying a real breeze! Sure, you’ll only be wearing it for a short time but you’ll be stylin’ in those few minutes thanks to its signature Coco & Eve leaf print design.
You can also buy the Coco & Eve microfiber towel as part of an impressive haircare bundle that includes their award-winning hair mask and a detangler.
If you’ve got long curly tresses, then this is the anti-frizz microfiber towel wrap for you! Plus, it has a compact design that makes it easy to tuck into your bag and take along to … anywhere! The Evolatree towel wrap is a polyester-polyamide blend that comes in either gray or raven. It also has a loop and wooden button to help hold it securely in place on your head.
Got long, thick curls but prefer an actual towel to a pre-formed turban? Get the Luxe Beauty Essentials microfiber towel – it’s long enough to wrap long hair and then twist up in a turban of your own making. It comes in two sizes with four solid color variations for you to choose from.
The DEVATOWEL by DevaCurl earns a spot on the list of microfiber towels for curly hair because it’s oh-so-soft and treats curly hair with plenty of lovin’. Don’t go thinking you have to live with frizz and static because of your curls and waves – the DEVATOWEL quickly dries hair while keeping both those styling spoilers at bay.

The convenient M-bestl microfiber towel turban fits both large and small heads, as well as all types and lengths of hair.

Rounding out our list of the best microfiber towels for curly hair is the YoulerTex hair towel wrap. It’s another polyester-polyamide microfiber blend that’s extra soft and super absorbent.
