★ Twisting your locks up in a towel is a recipe for disaster. Wet hair needs to be treated with extra care, it is far more delicate than dry hair. Swap your bath towel for a gentler option. Use an old, worn-in cotton t-shirt to gently squeeze and blot water from your hair, section by section. And keep the brush away until at least 90% dry. If you must detangle, make a wide-tooth comb your go-to tool.
