Wrap it up with the Hubalou Hair Towel

I’ve added and extra step to my hair routine that is actually saving me time, preventing damage, and freeing me of frizzies! As a curly girl, I’m always on the lookout for new products and styling methods that promise to tame my curls and the sometimes untamable frizziness that comes along with it. Remember when Lauren Conrad told us to wrap our hair in an old t-shirt? I obliged, I tried microfiber towels, white t-shirts, grey t-shirts, ones with stretch and ones without, but the end result wasn’t anything great. Not to mention I couldn’t quite keep the shirt on my head. Then the Hubalou Wrap* came in to my life and I finally fell in love with the hair wrapping method.
