Last week I wrote about the importance of using the right type of towel to dry your strands, and then this week I discovered hair drying gloves. Hair drying gloves? What? I know they sound a bit gimmicky, but I decided to try them out and they turned out to be quite handy! There are a few different kinds available for purchase, some are better for finer hair while others are great for curls and texture. Through some experimentation I figured out it’s best to first apply your styler to damp hair, rinse hands, and then put the gloves on. It makes the process of scrunching and squeezing water out of your hair a lot easier and makes air drying so much faster. So if you’re ready to try this variation of the towel out, click through to the notes to get some more details. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

Vogue recently called out the twisty towel as the hair accessory of the moment, as they caught many celebrities on Instagram snapping posts with their tendrils wrapped in fluffy towels post swim or après-shower. Far be it from me to judge Vogue on what’s in style, but I doubt we’ll be catching any it-gals strolling down 5th Ave with their hair wrapped in a bath towel. What is important to note however, is the type of towel you should be using to dry your tendrils. For your hair’s sake, it’s important to use one that cuts your drying time and doesn’t cause frizz or dents. To get you started, I’ve put together a list of what options you should be using for great hair.  To give these towels a twirl, click through to the notes.  –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

Split ends are your hair’s worst enemy. They often occur due to stressors like heat styling and chemical treatments. Yes, unfortunately all your primping is causing the protective outer layer of your hair cuticle to wear away and become week and brittle. I’m not saying you should stop primping all together, but there are things you can do to rid yourself of roughed up ends without running immediately to your stylist. Just book your trims accordingly and follow the steps in the notes to prevent and improve the overall look of your hair. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

hair plop

In the city that never sleeps we’ll take extra Zs however we can get them. Prepping hair the night before is the best way to make our mornings run smoothly, meaning you can allow yourself a few more hits of the snooze button. So when we discovered the “plopping method,” developed by the Naturally Curly community, we were intrigued. The technique involves sleeping with your hair in a “plop” so that curls are held in place and won’t get frizzy and crazy if you roll around in your sleep. Anything that promises better curls and more sleep is a keeper for us. To learn more about this technique, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart
