Towel Drying Your Short Hair System

After you have shampooed and conditioned your hair system, it is important to know the safest way to dry it. Because the human hair in your system is easily prone to drying out if continuously exposed to heat, it is better to towel dry than to blow dry. Our recommendation is to towel dry the hair, and then allow it to air dry. If you do plan to blow dry, towel dry the hair first in order to remove as much moisture as possible, as this will minimize blow dry time. Keep your dryer on a cool setting and avoid heat.


  • Your hair system, already shampooed and conditioned
  • Wide-tooth comb
  • Bath towel
  • Styrofoam head with T-pins and mount
  • Leave-in conditioner

Step 1: Prepare your hair system

First, lay a bath towel down on a flat surface.

Then, pick up your hair system and gently comb through the hair with a wide-tooth comb to ensure it is tangle-free.

Once you’re done, lay the system down flat on one half of your towel, and fold the other half over the system.

Step 2: Towel dry the hair

Starting at one end, roll the towel into a tube shape, pressing out the excess water as you roll.

When you’re done, unroll the towel and remove your hair system. Comb through the hair to remove tangles.

Step 3: Style the hair

Using the T-pins, pin your hair system to a Styrofoam head.

Then, apply leave-in conditioner and any styling products to the hair.

After all of the products are applied, style the hair how you would like.

We recommend allowing the hair to air dry. You may blow dry if needed, but be sure to follow instructions accurately to avoid drying out or damaging the hair.
