The T-Shirt Method

When drying your hair squeeze out as much of the water as you can before "towel" drying; as much as possible, avoid rubbing your hair with your "towel "—especially if you’ve chosen not to braid or twist your hair in sections. This will help to prevent tangles. The reason why the word towel is in inverted commas is because it's just the term used for it, but in actually fact it's not recommended to use a towel to dry your hair but a Cotton T-shirt.


What is the T-Shirt Method?

The T-Shirt Method is when you dry your hair with a t-Shirt instead of using a towel.

What are the Benefits of the T-shirt Method?

Our hair is most fragile and vulnerable to breakage,when wet, and towels are made to absorb the moisture from your hair and body. Using a towel can cause YOU to OVER-DRY YOUR HAIR and cause unnecessary BREAKAGE. This is where t-shirts come in, their made of a softer fabric then towels and prevent unnecessary breakage and over-drying.

How do you do the T-shirt Method?

It's quite simple while your hair is wet/damp, place the T-shirt on your head (make sure it's hanging down covering your hair), wrap/twist it around the length of your hair, then bring it forward to your hairline, and tuck it in the front (under the T-shirt) to secure it(Like the picture) and That's it. Leave it on for 15-20 mins. Remove the wrap and your hair will feel soft and smooth.

PS doesn't mean negligence

Many naturalistas think that wearing a protective style means neglecting, their hair routine. A protective style is there to give your hair a break from all the styling, not from your hair routine. Your hair still needs to be moisturised and given all the TLC it needs. If you're wondering "How the heck will I care for my hair if it's in cornrows or braided in within hair extensions?" Well here's how:
Spray your scalp with a daily spritz everyday, and massage for 30 sec to a 1 min. If your hair is enveloped in hair extensions spray the strands and rub them to make their way to your natural hair.


Here's a link to an alternative daily spritz recipe:
