After I wrote about the hair-drying gloves, I received a couple of emails from girlfriends who told me I could get the same effect by using an old T-shirt. I phoned my go-to hair girl, Emily, who confirmed that “in the day” many stylists to the stars claimed that the t-shirt material absorbed water from the hair. Who knew?
I did a little more research and found Curl Cloths, made of a similar fabric, these cloths are designed to set curls without frizz. Rider up. I couldn’t find a retailer in Canada so I ordered online, they cost $25 for 2 plus $10 for shipping. It’s like a tube towel made of t-shirt fabric and you use it the same way as the drying gloves by simply scrunching your hair. The results are quite similar however, I like the gloves better. The Curl Cloths take up less room so I will put one on the boat and leave the gloves at home.
