The VOLO Hero: The Most Gentle Hair Towel Ever.

$36,509

 To be blunt—your bath towel isn't doing your hair any favors. 

So, we created a better one. Meet the most thoughtfully engineered towel, made for your healthiest hair yet.

Say goodbye to breakage, frizz, and dullness.

Sometimes it can feel like you need a thousand products and an entirely new routine to get the hair of your dreams. We prefer to take it back to the basics. How are you treating your wet hair?

Before buying any other products, start with assessing your towel.   

A quick throwback to chemistry 101:

Your hair is made of proteins (called keratin) bonded together. These protein-to-protein bonds are super strong! But when your hair is wet, water penetrates into these bonds, weakening them. Weaker bonds = greater opportunity for damage. Plus, the extra weight of the water stretches your hair out. 

Removing water quickly and efficiently (especially before brushing or blow drying!) keeps your hair from breaking.

The most important time to take care of your hair is immediately after stepping out of the shower.

Using a quick dry towel dramatically shortens your dry time...and the less time your hair is wet, the less damage to your hair. When you blow dry your hair, a shorter dry time also means less heat damage. Score.

The VOLO Hero improves your hair-care routine while working along with every product you have at home. 

Keep doing what you’re doing, just do it better.

Regular bath towels are rough on your hair, which causes friction (read: damage and breakage). Plus, heavy bath towels tend to topple off and yank your hair out, which is as annoying as it is dangerous for your hair. 

That's where the VOLO Hero comes in-- It’s plush, absorbent and extremely gentle on your locks. Creating a towel that was extremely gentle on hair was our first priority. 

After all, the math speaks for itself. Less water damage + less frizz + less exposure to heat = wins all-around. 

Incredibly Soft

Did we mention it’s PLUSH? Sayonara, frizz. Hello, comfort. It's like a baby blanket for your head. Seriously. It's that soft.

Superior Absorbency

Our thick, dense material quickly absorbs more water than other hair towels leading to a faster dry time. In our trials, our towel was able to absorb 10 TIMES its own weight in water. 

Easy to use

Other hair towels use buttons to fasten into place and are not adjustable for head size or hair type. Fixed button + fixed head pocket = one size fits all towel (and surprise, one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to hair!). Not to mention that buttons leave you fumbling to find the most efficient angle.

Our snug strap allows the towel to stretch and form a custom fit. Plus, it's a cinch to secure so you don't have to fuss. It's easy like Sunday morning. 

Generous Sizing

At 39.4 x 23.5 inches, our towels are longer and wider than the average hand towel or hair towel. In other words, no matter your head size or hair length, The VOLO Hero has got you covered.

We designed our towel with intention from start to finish. Unlike the average bath towel, the Hero is made from extremely lightweight material, which means it won’t tip over, fall off, or weigh you down. Plus, as the VOLO Hero is larger than other hair towels on the market, it's made to fit a wider diversity of heads and hair types without unfurling.

No more constantly rebalancing, and no more neck pain. Once you twist and tuck the towel, the snug strap stretches to accommodate the base of any head, comfortably wrapping to secure the towel. Put on makeup, get dressed, practice yoga, cook breakfast, send emails, chase your kids...continue conquering the world.

We are a beauty-tech startup based in San Diego, California focused on creating the most innovative and useful products for hair styling and hair health. Throughout our experience in the beauty industry, we’ve seen thousands of products hit the shelves. When it came to hair towels, we saw opportunity for improvement and decided it was time to step it up. 

The VOLO Hero is the first in our series of innovative products that improve hair health while also allowing the user to continue their lives uninterrupted. We believe products should offer creative advancement and work for the consumer (stay tuned for the world’s first Cordless Hair Dryer, coming later this summer!).

With 25 years in beauty distribution, Ryan (left) has seen it all. After watching his wife struggle with hair towel after hair towel, extremely disappointed, Ryan realized the quick dry towel was ready for innovation. Jonathan (right), his friend and engineer, joined Ryan to help bring this product to life by testing dozens of prototypes before getting it just right. And once the VOLO Hero fit these big noggins, we knew we were on to something!

We've put the VOLO Hero to the test, modifying each and every facet to provide the most innovative, gentle towel to optimize hair health.

We need your help to take the final steps in production. We've already secured our manufacturers and will be able to ship as soon as this campaign is over. That's right-- we will have the VOLO Hero shipped to your door within weeks of the campaign closing!
