What Salon Towels Are Right For You?
Not all towels are created equal...
But what makes one salon towel better than another? You should consider four main factors when deciding which towel is best for your needs.
1. Towel Size and Weight: You have your own requirements. You may like a real heavy towel or prefer a lightweight towel. When deciding which is best for you, consider two factors. First, a heavier towel will require longer wash and dry time, and second, all 100% cotton towels will shrink as much as 10% after the first washing. Boss Beauty Supply offers the largest selection of size and weight towels in the industry. We have the right towel for you, whatever your special needs.
2. Towel Construction: Many towels available today are manufactured using outdated equipment, some even on manual machines which leads to poor quality stitching. Our towels are manufactured on only the most modern automatic equipment creating superior edges with no fraying.
3. Cotton Towels: Many towel manufacturers use low grade, recycled cotton which may have the same size and weight, but does not have the same absorbency quality as a top quality towel. Also, many towels use extremely short cotton fibers making their lifespan much shorter, and some even fall apart after two or three washes. Boss uses only the finest cotton fiber for a more absorbent, longer lasting towel.
4. Towel Absorbency: Boss towels have thick loops and a tighter base to create a more absorbent, longer lasting towel. It is the loops on a towel that do the drying; therefore, the more loops per square inch, the better the drying capability. Our color hand towels have 16 loops per square inch on the Budget and Premium line to as high as 20 loops per square inch on our Supreme, Majestic and Bleach Buster line. Of course, the more loops, the higher the cost but the results are a higher quality, longer lasting, more absorbent towel.
Towel Washing Tips
1. Wash colors separately from whites and do not over bleach. Chlorine will weaken cotton fibers and cause towels to be brittle and tear.
2. To reduce lint, wash towels separately from other types of clothing and material.,
3. Do not use a fabric softener. It will coat the fabric causing it to lose absorbency.
4. Do not overstuff washer or dryer. This causes excess agitation which will tear the thread, and the towel will begin to unravel.
