“Ain’t nobody got time for that” is a catchphrase that resonates so deeply because it’s true AF, and nowhere is it more applicable than literally waiting for your hair to dry. Whether you plan on heat styling or air-drying, ridding your locks of stubborn water droplets is an annoying inconvenience that we wish we could bypass. Imagine if you could snap your fingers, twiddle your nose or blink twice, and just like that, your sopping wet mane would be perfectly dry and you’d be ready to go. To cut your drying time by an impressive amount, we rounded up the best microfiber hair towels guaranteed to get you out the door pronto. Shop below!
Aquis Rapid Dry Lisse Hair Wrap: $30
Aquis is the OG of microfiber towels. The brand relies on proprietary Aquitex fabric to cut drying time by half, meaning you can head out the door twice as fast. The towel also prevents “hygral fatigue,” which is when hair stretches and swells when wet, leading to frizz and split ends. It’s also the most creative way of saying this that we’ve ever heard. Bonus: the towel is basically a turban so you can wrap and dry hands-free.
Coco & Eve Microfibre Hair Towel Wrap: $24.90
Your drying time has never looked so effortlessly fab. Reduce damage caused by heat styling by starting out with already dry hair, or just rock your natural texture. Either way, you’ll be doing it in style. For some serious self-care, apply a hair mask and leave it on under your hair towel wrap overnight. You’ll wake up to princess locks.

Turbie Twist Microfiber Hair Towel: $15.99
With reviews boosting that the Turbie Twist is a “life-changer” and that’s there’s “no other towel like it,” especially for coarse and curly hair, we’re sold on this ultra lightweight yet durable microfiber towel. It’s sold as a two pack, so you can take one on the go or pass it to your bestie. Spread hair drying love, it’s the Mane fam way.

Kitsch Quick Dry Hair Towel: $23
With a five-star rating and leopard or palm print options, this too cute, super soft towel by Kitsch is great for all hair types, absorbs moisture in a flash, and reduces frizz. And, it can be used as a shower cap so you can pretty much just leave it on your head and call it a life.
Devacurl Devatowel Anti-Frizz Microfiber Towel: $22
We love Devacurl, and naturally their Devatowel does not disappoint. Designed specifically for curly and wavy hair, this towel is big, ultra absorbent, and leaves hair full. Most impressive is that curls actually stay in tact when the towel comes off. Although it promotes faster drying time, it won’t dry your hair out, which is the biggest priority when it comes to curls.
DuraComfort Essentials Super Absorbent Anti-Frizz Microfiber Hair Towel: $19.27
A budget option with premium quality, the DuraComfort microfiber towel is super stretchy, flexible, and absorbent. Plus, it’ll last you a long time if you take proper care of it.
