Use textile paints, pens, brushes and stamps to decorate and personalize a soft cotton towel to gently squeeze water from your curly locks after cleansing and conditioning. Learn to print or paint playful curly patterns and designs. Curly hair is naturally dry and any extra handling causes frizz by ruffling your hair’s cuticles. Curly hair also needs all the moisture it can get and terry cloth towels absorb too much. Keep those curls curly and defined by using your personalized smooth cotton fabric to scrunch and curl.

Choose a theme for your prayer, dream or wish. Add words and embellish your fabric flag with paper, paint, embroidery, buttons, beads, markers, etc. Hang your flags outside or in your window. It is believed that the prayers on the flags are lifted up and spread throughout the universe as they flutter in the wind. Everyone who is touched by that wind, is touched by the prayers.
