The Ultimate Showdown: Scrummi Disposable Hair Towels vs. Traditional Towels

In the fast-paced world of salon management, every detail counts—from the quality of hair products to the type of towels used. One of the most significant shifts in salons today has been the transition from traditional towels to disposable hair towels.

Scrummi is leading the change with our innovative disposable salon hair towels. In this ultimate showdown, we compare the Scrummi disposable towels with traditional towels, highlighting the numerous advantages of choosing Scrummi for both salon owners and clients!

The Traditional Towel

Traditional towels have long been a staple in salons. Made from cotton or microfiber, they are reusable and provide a sense of familiarity. However, these towels come with a range of limitations:

  • High Maintenance: Traditional towels require regular washing, drying, and folding, which demands significant time and effort from salon staff.
  • Hygiene Concerns: Despite rigorous laundering, traditional towels can harbour bacteria posing potential hygiene risks.
  • Wear and Tear: Frequent use and washing lead to deterioration, affecting the towel's absorbency and appearance over time.
  • Environmental Impact: The water, energy, and detergents used in laundering contribute to a larger environmental footprint.

Enter Scrummi Disposable Hair Towels

Scrummi disposable towels are revolutionising the salon industry with the innovative design of our eco-friendly waffle towels. Here’s why they stand out:

Ultimate Convenience

Scrummi disposable salon hair towels eliminate the need for laundering. Each towel is used once and then discarded, significantly reducing the workload for salon staff. This allows your staff to focus more on delivering exceptional services to clients rather than managing laundry.

Superior Hygiene

Hygiene is paramount in any salon. Scrummi disposable towels ensure that each client gets a fresh, clean towel every time. This reduces the risk of cross-contamination and enhances the overall salon experience.

Eco-Friendly Solution

Contrary to what one might think, Scrummi disposable towels are an eco-friendly choice. Made from biodegradable and sustainably sourced materials, these eco towels break down naturally, minimising environmental impact. This is a significant advantage over traditional towels, which require extensive resources for washing and drying.

Exceptional Absorbency

Scrummi towels are designed to be highly absorbent, quickly soaking up water and moisture from hair. In fact they are 10x more absorbent than a traditional cotton towel!


Disposable towels are more cost-effective in the long run. The average cost of laundering salon cotton towels is around £0.55 per towel — and that number is a whole lot bigger for larger salon and spa towels (let alone sheets). By switching to Scrummi towels you can rid yourself of rising laundry costs for good!

Sustainability Commitment

Scrummi is committed to sustainability. Our disposable hair towels are crafted from Veocel™ wood-based fibres and are fully biodegradable. This aligns with the growing demand for environmentally conscious products in the hair and beauty industry, appealing to eco-minded clients and enhancing the salon's reputation.
