Shailene Woodley's Healthy Hair, Antibacterial Microfiber Towels

“Privacy isn’t a human right anymore—it’s a privilege,” says Shailene Woodley, who plays Edward Snowden’s girlfriend Lindsay Mills wearing a long brown wig, in Stone’s biopic "Snowden".

Pre-2014 Shailene Woodley had the best mane of hair in Hollywood.

Her brunette locks keep growing and looking very healthy in "The Edit Net-A-Porter" photosession, September 2016.

How to take care properly of your hair? Instead of using a  raspy cotton towel, wrap your hair in an old t-shirt to avoid frizziness. If you don’t want to use a t-shirt you can consider using a microfiber towel, which will cause less damage then normal towels and it will absorb the moisture faster than a towel thanks to its lisse crepe fabric. 

Although cotton (terry) towels have been the most popular choice for their durability and versatility, microfiber is quickly becoming the top pick for many carwashes and detailing centers because of its impressive absorbency and longevity. The microfiber towels are considered as the best materials when it comes to wiping out stains around home furniture. Microfiber towels must always be washed separately from other fabrics and materials, especially cotton towels. The lint from other towels will stick to the microfiber, so it's best to wash microfiber towels apart. You can wash them easily with soap and hot water in the washing machine.  

Microfiber consists entirely of polyester, a polymer, and a nylon byproduct. The way the fibers are woven determines the quality of the fabric. These fibers are 1/100th the thickness of an average human hair. In cleaning products they are split and a cross-section of a fiber looks a bit like an asterisk. These tiny gaps trap dust, dirt, and liquids more effectively. These microfiber cloths and mops work wonderfully along with any other eco-friendly cleaning solutions. Their electrostatic properties attract dust. The fibers are positively charged, dirt and dust are negatively charged, so they are attracted to microfiber like a magnet. 

Microfiber Cleaning Cloths: The dirt remains locked deep inside the cloth, enabling you to continuously clean without releasing dirt back on to the cleaning surface. The dirt is retained in the material until it is washed reducing the need for frequent rinsing. The cleaning surface will become so clean that new dirt will not be attracted as easily. What makes the microfiber cloths unique are their health benefits, reducing the incidence of environmental allergies.

Microfiber towels have a plush feel and the ability to absorb up to seven times its weight in water. They are exceptionally soft, like bamboo or Egyptian cotton spa towels, super absorbent, quick drying and no linting. You'll experience a warmer feel, and bacteria doesn't grow like in cotton fabric. You can reuse the same towels for weeks without need to wash them continually.

A recent study showed that microfiber products can help prevent the spread of bacteria, particularly Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The tests showed that MRSA on microfiber products, including gloves, napkins and towels, was reduced by nearly 100% two hours after initial contact. Cotton is an organic material that actually serves as a nutrient for bacteria. Poly-cotton textiles showed a 72% reduction rate, and cotton products displayed only 27% reduction.
